Journal Entry #256

Hey guys πŸ™‚ I don’t have much to show and tell today but, I’m still here journaling every other day like I said I would. Yay!

On Sunday, after I published my last entry, I did end up playing Sims 4 for awhile but, I turned it off in time to watch the full first episode of Love Island (UK) on Hulu before we went to bed.

On July 9th, the US version of Love Island starts on CBS and I am super excited to see how it goes. I hope they’re about the love and not just the money; more like the UK Love Islanders and nothing like the US Paradise Hotelers. PLEASE.

ALSO, can’t wait for Big Brother. I think the premiere was tonight but, it’s not online yet and that’s what I’m waiting for. πŸ˜‰ Hehe… if you couldn’t tell– reality TV is my weakness. I love it even more than (or maybe the same as) gaming!

Yesterday, I woke up around 2 PM. I read blogs and a bit of my book then, showered and walked with boyfriend to Starbucks for espressos and Albertsons for some sandwich making ingredients.

We also got macaroni salad to eat on the side. It was all super yummy!!

We watched the second episode of Love Island while we ate. When it ended, I wrote up my film reviews post and then got ready for work.

I got there around 11 PM and the manager warned me that there were way too many girls compared to guys but I went in anyways because I Ubered and really, I couldn’t turn back. We need to get our car towed and fixed!

It was such a rough night and honestly, I wish I hadn’t wasted my time. I did make a small profit so I shouldn’t complain but oh my gosh, it was so bad… I think I can whine a little, can’t I?! 😦

Today, boyfriend went to Albertsons to get us some household necessities and to the dispensary to get us more weed. I stayed home and watched the rest of the remaining episodes of Love Island.

We also bought a rack of Bourbon BBQ ribs yesterday and ate them today with another delicious sammy I could only finish half of.

If you’re wondering, that’s the little leftover coconut shrimp from Elephant Bar lol. πŸ˜›

Since I have nothing else to watch, I’ll probably go “clothes shopping” for my Sims now… hope you all are having a nice week. ❀

  1. Wait wait wait is this Love Island season 5!? As in the one that’s currently on in the UK right now? LETS TALK!

    It sucks your night at work was rough 😦 but at least you did make a profit so it was still worth you staying a little ❀️

    Have a great week Hunida!

    1. Yes yes!! I am currently watching Season 5 like you but we don’t get to see them the same time as you. I think we are 5 episodes behind here. I can’t really decide who I like out of the cast except Tommy so far lol.

      Thank you, Jennie! ❀ You always remind me to look on the bright side!

      I hope you have a great week, too!!

      1. OMG YAY!!!!!!! Where are you up to now? It has heated up so much omg, so much has happened now, I wonder if you’re all caught up? Ah I love Tommy he is so precious. I really like Molly too and Maura! Although I didn’t like her to begin with… have you met her yet?

        Aw you’re welcome Hunida, thanks hun!! ❀

        1. Hulu still hasn’t released the latest episodes so I’ve only gotten to watch up until Maura’s first day (so like the first 10, I think)! I actually liked her from get-go. It was so unfair how the girls treated her & were shouting from the balcony during her dates! I like Molly & Lucie, too!! Oh & Amber, she cracks me the heck up lol. ❀ I kind of hate Curtis & what's-her-face though– they both annoy the crap outta me for some reason!!


    1. The UK version has 4 full seasons & an ongoing 5th one on Hulu right now, the US version starts its first season on July 9th on CBS. πŸ™‚ I hope you enjoy it as much as I do if you start to watch it!! Those ribs were so yummy, I’ve been craving more ever since!!


  2. I’m such a sucker for reality TV as well but I haven’t watched any dating ones before! I would see previews and think they’ll be fun but completely forget about it. I think I did manage to watch half a season of Married at First Sight and that one show where couples marry so their foreign partner gets a green card (the name is on the tip of my tongue!).

    Did you get Island Paradise for The Sims 4 yet?! I’m dying to play it!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I think dating reality TV is my fave but I also love game shows/competitions! I always forget about shows I see on preview, too, unless I write them down somewhere!! I’ve never watched Married at First Sight. I think the one with the greencard is 90 Day Fiance, right? I saw it on Hulu but didn’t watch it either!

      Nooo, I need to take a breather from the Sims 4 right now & I’m also waiting for it go on sale. πŸ˜› I just bought Jungle Adventure & have never even traveled to the new vacation spot yet. Island Paradise looks so freakin’ awesome though!! I can’t wait to see their sun burns/tans LOL.

      1. Yes, that’s the one! I watched a few 90 Day Fiance recap vids on YouTube and it makes me want to watch it from the start. I can’t believe this is even a thing!

        Omg, that’s like me. I make my sims such a homebody, I feel like I only buy the game packs/expansions and hope I still get a lot of new things at home without having to travel to a new world πŸ˜›

        1. Ooh, I wasn’t sure if I’d like that one but I’m gonna watch it & see if I do now. πŸ™‚

          It is SO stressful to bring my Sims out LOL. They are always nearly dead & all their needs are red when we get home hahaha.


  3. I havent watched Love Island since I finished that first season lol
    And are they actually naming it Love Island for the US too?? Well see how that goes.
    Oh a bagel sandwich with macaroni salad on the side! Nice!
    What a short post!! I miss ya girly!

    1. Aw, I hope you get into the other seasons of Love Island sometime!! Would love to talk favorites & stuff, hehe.

      Yeah, the US Love Island is even using the UK episodes as previews/trailers. I thought it was so weird but I’m excited to watch it. Paradise Hotel was so similar & didn’t do well… so we will see how it goes!

      Mmm, yess… I am obsessed with like mayo-based salads right now. Potato, crab/seafood, macaroni, chicken & fruit– gimme it all lol.

      I’m gonna write a long entry after dinner. I miss you so much, too!!! ❀

      1. Oh it might take a while for me to go through the love island seasons because the episodes are fucking long lol

  4. Your blog posts are so fun to read, Hunida! I’m usually off of work on Fridays and I love catching up and reading πŸ’›It’s like you’re just chatting with all of us! Total side note lol

    Sounds like you had a pretty chill day today. I’m sorry you had a rough night at work yesterday, though :/

    I’ve never watched Love Island before! Okay, now I definitely want to because me and Alejandro are such reality TV show dorks LOL! Will have to check it out. I still have my Hulu account for the month and we’ll both be off of work tomorrow evening so it sounds like an indoor date night haha!

    The sandwich looks yummy!! x

    1. Aw yay, Nunzia ❀ thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog on your day off!! I really needed to hear that. ❀

      I have a feeling every night at work is going to be pretty rough until maybe September or October. πŸ˜› The summer's in Vegas are so slow!

      Oh my gosh, yess!! Even my boyfriend enjoys Love Island & he's not that into reality TV as much as I am. I hope you two like it, too!! ❀

      Thank youuu!!


  5. HAHAH, reality TV is such a great guilty pleasure! Mmm, food looking great as always. I guess the ratio on some nights just aren’t great. Nice to see you keeping up and writing everyday, that dedication! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘


    1. Gosh, I am addicted. I LOVE reality TV!! ❀ Yeah, the ratio most nights have been way off. The summers are the worst!! 😦 I shouldn't have boasted so soon about keeping up with writing because I fell off right after… oopsie!!

  6. ur food looks so tasty!!
    oh my gosh i hope you guys can get that car fixed soon! It’s so annoying that you have to work and have to share one car so now ur both struggling. Thats kind of what my brother is going through right now and dang, it makes me wish i didn’t have to move out cuz then i will have to get my own car for work and i will prob end up having to share with my husband too.
    Why can’t transportation be easy to access and free!!! aghh

    When u say you’re going clothes shopping on sims it seriously makes me wanna play rn. that’s something i always loved doing when i play games. I even loved shopping for stuff in those need for speed games lol

    1. Thank youuuu!! πŸ™‚ The food was awesome.

      I don’t need my own car because I never drive lol boyfriend drives me around everywhere but yes, it does suck because we both suffer majorly without one! 😦 It would be amazing if transportation was easy & free, wouldn’t it?!

      YESSS! Shopping for clothes is so fun for all games. I love dressing up characters. πŸ˜€ Need for Speed was a blast!!


  7. I heard rumblings that they are making the US version of Love Island, but I didn’t realize it was coming up so soon! Curious to see what you think!

    My goodness- that Sammy!!

    Hope clothes shopping went well πŸ™‚ Thanks for the update, gf! xo

      1. I would lovee to watch- I may have to start it a few weeks late though!! I haven’t watched in a couple seasons because I don’t have CBS, but I may have to start it back up if this season is good! Ohhhh wait, maybe our new internet cable service allows us to access it- I’ll have to see!!!

  8. I watched the first few seasons of Big Brother but then they started having too many quirky game show competitions and stuff. I liked it in the beginning when they just sat around in the house and talked. Kind of like that MTV series. What was it called? Oh The Real World. The first 7-ish seasons were good. I wonder if one can stream those. The early seasons of shows like that. I wouldn’t mind seeing some of them again.

    1. Aw I actually like the quirky competitions & stuff the most in Big Brother but I also loved Real World & totally get what you mean about wanting shows like that again! Maybe you can stream them on MTV’s website somehow?

    1. Mm, mm the bagel sandwich was awesome!! I’m sure you could whip up your own macaroni salad with an easy online recipe– it’s so simple but delish. πŸ˜‰ I hope you like it if you try it!!



  9. The bourbon ribs? Oh my!!!!
    Why was work so bad? Because of the ratio?

    Everyone at work is obsessed with Love Island… it’s not really my thing, but, I couldn’t help it and watched a few clips on YouTube… I think it’s too far in for me to watch it for the beginning but I may have to watch the last season on Netflix! X

    1. Those ribs were so delish, I have been wanting more ribs ever since. πŸ˜› & yesss, work is so hard when there are more dancers than customers. If there’s no one to talk to, we can’t make any $$, y’know?!

      I am super obsessed with Love Island, too, lol. I skipped Season 04 because the cast was majorly boring but this Season is fun!! Let me know if you get into it. ❀ We are like a week behind here in the US though!

      1. Oh I get you with work! Yes makes sense.

        Its lunch time atm, and ribs sounds like a winning idea.
        I’m on holiday at the moment, but I think when I get home on saturday morning I’ll have to watch from season 1 to help me with the holiday blues! Xxx

        1. We had some ribs again a couple days ago lol. I hope you’re having an amazing holiday!! Love Island Season 01 is def one of my favorites still. Hope you enjoy. πŸ˜€


  10. omg I neeeeed to watch US love island it sounds amazing, the uk one here is hilarious, but I imagine the American one to be super entertaining.

    1. Lol yes, love the UK Love Island but I really don’t think the US one will be as good– Americans are going to plot for the money from the beginning… they’ll not even make real connections, I bet. I wonder if you will be able to watch it over there though!!
