April Favorites | Quarantine Favorites | Stay At  Home Favorites | Self-Isolation Guide | Introvert Lifestyle

Feel free to skip to categories you’re most interested in. There’s no need to read the whole post. Also, I always include non-favorites in every favorites post towards the end. You’re also more than welcome to just ignore it completely, if you have been trying to avoid the news/media on the current pandemic, because I know how overwhelming it can be. You know, you’re allowed to stay informed, just don’t hurt yourself from being overloaded with more news than you can take. 


Also, I’m sorry for the title being too long. I’m currently experimenting with Pinterest algorithm and improving manual pinning, so I’m sorry if it gives off a very hashtag vibe. You’ll notably see this in more post that I’ll be uploading. And that’s not to just catch views, it’s also personal to me. I would have preferred to go without it, but it’s just me having a knack for chronicling things and the whole “Quarantine” additions are just these red stamps placed in the titles to file away my posts properly.  If some slots are empty, it’s because I don’t have anything to put under there yet, but I’ll be updating it weekly instead of monthly because time just feels like it’s shifted a lot. March and April definitely feel longer than they have before.

#beauty


x Using my Most Ignored Palette: Rimmel Nude Palette. I actually like it a lot. I was putting it off and whining about having to use it but I actually enjoyed using it a lot. 

x Nailtiques Formula 2 for topcoat. I’ve had this for a while and it still smells super nice. Great and handy for back up as I’d like to go to the store less. 




#humor


x There’s not much laughter going around. But being with my family gives me strength ; - ; I know not everyone is as lucky as I am to be able to stay at home with them. Doctors, nurses, and everyone in the front line can’t even see their family during this time ; - ; 

x Re-watching Avatar: The Last Airbender (Animated Series). And I love Toph! She’s legendary! I’m so glad they made her small and blind!  Been binging a lot of analysis videos on her :3 And her Best moments here! It makes me want to read the comic books again post Book 3.

#food


x Kodiak pancakes! w/ ham, sausages, with eggs with tabasco sauce :3 

x Sliced apples by Mama Bear ! 

x Crawfish, corn, boiled potato (seeped with garlic and oranges)

x Beets with bell peppers + Ginger Ale

x Strawberry yogurt topped with nutritional yeast and cannabis approved snack (I’ll look up the name later)

x Red apples :3 I have this Cuisinart knife that’s so sharp and refined that it’s so fun to cut apples with it. It’s so smooth. And it looks like it came straight out of the set of the Game of thrones. 

x Matcha Boba w/ grass jelly :3 from M Tea 

x ‘Crying Tiger’ steak. My dad decided to channel his inner chef during Quarantine. Tastes really good :D Does anyone know how to talk to their dad because I wanted to give my dad a hug to tell him I’m so proud of him but I had to go in stoic mode and just game him a solemn nod with my hands on my hips to tell him that he did a really good job lol. Also, the title/name of the steak looks like I’m pro wild-life consumption, but I promise you it’s not. That’s just the title of the recipe. 


#gaming

x Relearning Japanese Hiragana + Katana with ‘Love Language’ (available on Steam)

x Animal Restaurant (Haven’t spent any real money | only in game currency and my restaurant looks so good :D Haven’t deleted the app so that’s a good sign)

#non-favorites

x There’s still no cure for the virus ; - ;  I hope they find one soon and that everyone in the frontlines remain safe ; - ; I can’t thank them enough for risking their lives for us. We have to #stayhome. I don’t care if it takes one or two years. We just need to help them for helping us. 

x The US administration under Trump is a joke. It caused me to have a break down and cry several times this month from the stress, panic, and anxiety.

x Stye on my left eye has returned ; - ; I think it’s either too much screen time or too much active trauma. 

x Procreate not liking me ): I think my color drop function isn’t working even though I make sure there are no gaps. 

x Corrupt jpg files ; - ; I’m trying to salvage whatever I can | Lost memories hurt so much | I hope I can find a safe, reliable software to recover them 

x Late period for 4 days . _ . I think it’s the constant trauma we’re in that’s delaying it | The president needs to get fired soon 

x Mama Bear having to go outside often because shelves are empty and she has to re-check other places if they have the items we need / stuff we need to send to the Philippines to help out my grandma ; - ;

x Regretting not buying back ups of beauty products. 

x Texas governor wanting to lift lockdown before May 1 D: What in the fuck’s name is wrong with Republicans? It’s embarrassing to live in a red state. 

x Neck pain + anxiety 

x iPhone X died after wiping it a lot of times with hand sanitizer ):
