A Day with Mari



Hey everyone! Welcome to another vlog-ish kinda post. I didn't mark all of the hours, but only the ones that felt relevant to me. I just realized I should have also made my A Week With Mari post labeled with all the days, like what I did on Monday or Tuesday, etc. But I just wanted the post to have a more of a relaxed feel to it. So just a general thing I've been doing all week. Although that is a good idea for the next posts that I make like that. For now, we'll just roll with half-structured posts. 


I got new silk pillowcases. I've been really into nailing down my bedtime routine ever since I realize I only get an average of four hours of sleep daily. That's bad. That's really bad. Anyway, they're rose gold, and they're very pretty, and I can't wait to use them with Tommy when he sleeps over. For the cover of this post, I'm really happy I caught Tommy meditating in the garden with his brows all furrowed. Haha, he looks so cute. 

I took a lot of photos of Mama Bear's gardens. She has so many pretty white blooms, purple blooms, and pale pink flowers too. I think they're all a variation of azaleas and gardenias. And my city has been so pretty lately too. We don't have cherry blossoms, but we also have branchy trees with white and purple blossoms everywhere that kinda mimic cherry blossoms, and oh my god, my heart was so happy while I was driving all Saturday afternoon. It almost made me forget about my spring allergies. 

Lately, I've been trying to schedule some crying time, because my PCP has left the clinic. She never even told me about it. And fuck, it hurts like a fucking breakup, man. I haven't been able to cry, even when I'm alone, because I guess I'm still not done processing it. She was the only one who really listened to me when I had scary physical symptoms from my anxiety. My current doctor is more traditional in her approach to medicine and health practices, and I feel like she doesn't really believe in the psychosomatic effects of anxiety. Because she just wanted me to keep seeing my psychiatrist and psychologist, instead of her being a part of the team, that helps me treat my anxiety. 

I guess that kinda explains my overload of posting lately on my blog. I've also missed blogging, so I've tried to re-establish the connection of writing here again, and feeling good when I finished posting something. 

I saw the balloon cat again on our patio! I've decided to call him Boba Fett! Because he's sooo friggin cute. I just wanna squish him all day. Still no sign of Captain Rex though. We last saw him in February and me and my mom are hoping he's okay wherever he is. 

So this past spring break, me and my dad decided to pitch our money together to help my mom get her dream greenhouse in the backyard. It looks so nice! Tommy likes it too. And we're hoping the other stray cats end up staying there during winter storms or just at night. Because they refuse to go inside, even when the weather is bad with all the tornado warnings happening. 

By the way, I finished all of the major seasonal events I missed out on Animal Crossing: New Horizons last year. I put down the game after two months because I didn't know about time travel back then. I completed all of the Sakura DIY Recipes. I unlocked half of Franklin's Thanksgiving Event. And I really, really liked the Fireworks Festival! It was soooo pretty! I also went crazy with pergolas and wisterias for decorations all over my island! And I decorated my Disneyland Castle with lots of snacks from Redd's raffle using cube lights. Currently working on my Howl's Moving Castle Amusement Park, but I'm currently out of Nook Miles Tickets, so I'm taking a break from NH. I also got Lobo and Vivian at Happy Home Paradise!!! And I reached Legendary status :) Currently playing Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX with Skitty and Pikachu as my two main characters. 


Hmmm, what else do I want to talk about? Oh yeah, I've been into shelves and tapestries lately. I'm just online shopping during my free time for the perfect one. I don't know what's happening to me. I used to be really stubborn about shelves and tapestries, but I guess I'm kinda starting to like them now :) 

We're gonna go shopping soon for cat beds because my aunt has another set of a litter of kittens and a couple of them are grey and we want to have them as soon as they're ready. 

What else am I forgetting? Oh yeah, I've been listening to Final Ascent non-stop from the  No Time To Die soundtrack. I know not everyone loved that ending, but I did because it broke my heart. It was perfect. I don't know what people are complaining about. Also been rewatching it a lot with Tommy. And  I think it's really sweet that people from the Faroe Islands decided to erect a gravestone memorial of Daniel Craig's James Bond. If I ever have a kid, I'm gonna name my firstborn Faroe. 

I found a couple of slice-of-life anime. Right now I'm planning on starting Ao-chan Can't Study. I hope it's good. I feel like this post is getting away from me. I think it's turning into what I've been thinking about the whole day instead of what I actually did. Oh well. 

I can't wait to have everything organized, so when I go to the storage, I can go ahead and read about the sci-fi short story I wrote in fifth grade about an astronaut visiting Mars. And lately, I've been inside this future loop, where I keep seeing myself as the most feared lady in this remote village somewhere. And every time I want jam and toast, I just take a long walk to the next village, ask a locksmith to open the stubborn jar for me, and I'll have a picnic by the stream. After working out an appetite, that jam is gonna taste so good. 


5:30 PM. Took my meds. Went to Daiso to pick up a white box container. Ended up adding five other things . _ . ;;; Everything was under $30 though so that made me feel better. And I also couldn't go crazy because of inflation. And they raised their prices from $2 to $3. Girl, I was not feeling it. 

6 PM. Went to the grocery store to pick up stuff for Mama Bear & Papa Bear. And this little hungry bear picked up four boxes of pastries. _ .;;; Because you, know, essentials and stuff. Successfully, window shopped for cosmetics! The Care Bears line was really cute, but I don't really have a place for it in my collection. My make-up boxes are full, and I haven't panned anything. 

7:30 PM. Went to Seiwa Market. Tried to chase the sunset to take photos of the pretty spring blooms but rush hour stopped me lol. 

9 PM. Went home. Made Tiktok reels for the first time. I have zero views, but I don't care, I'm having so much fun. I already wrote down a bunch of ideas for my next reel videos. It's been a while since I got excited about making anything. The last time I felt that was three years ago lol. I tried to revamp my Instagram for my blog (I haven't updated it in two years), but I felt too sleepy to do anything. I do have the icons ready though. So, I'm just waiting to have enough charged creative energy to do it and revive it sometime soon.  

10 PM. Spent time with Tommy. Listened to Poirot Investigates narrated by Richard Armitage. I'm still working on my audiobook reviews. Also, I used to be against listening to audiobooks before bed because I don't like the idea of falling asleep and missing out on key details of the book especially if it's a mystery book. But so far it's all working out okay. And it's not a bad thing to re-read the next morning. So far that's my new bedtime routine, and I'm really liking it. I went from getting around 4 hours of sleep to at least 6-to 7 hours. So that's really good. 

And that's it for me today you guys! I hope you enjoyed this short post. Thanks for reading. Take care xx
