Partly cloudy, 8C (13C)

I feel pissy and frustrated.

Reasons )

I would like to positively resolve at least two of these items, today. One of them is probably not all that difficult (the last...) but any single one of the upper three are just... well, they feel really distant.

So I'll start with the last item (which is actually a trifecta!) and see what happens from there.

I was going to try to list good things, also, to counteract the above bile and refocus on things that are Going Well to balance out the negative talk... Here goes :

  • The Internet is working at my apartment!
  • I have some anime series ready to start watching (Muteki Kanban Musume turns out to have rendering issues, so I couldn't and still can't watch that, but I picked up at least the first three eps of two three four other shows to try out... None of them are really in the comedy genre, but I think I should still enjoy them, nonetheless)! I'm okay for tea right now!
  • I remembered to take my vitamins, today! (I forgot to do so yesterday...)
  • The toilet is flushing fine!
  • I have what else to wear while going to do laundry--and I have laundry money!
  • After shopping and whatnot, I can settle in next to my floor heater and put it under the blankets to stay warm without consuming so much electricity!
  • My sun is shining, today!

Cloudy, 13C (8C)

Ah, so, first, I wanted to add an item to the second list from my last post--I don't think I mentioned it because of the earthquakes happening right away, but I bought a miniature sakura tree. I wanted a miniature plum tree, but it seems those are hard to find and the sakura was pretty cheap so I bought it. Anyway, it's budding nicely, see :

As for the first list : I have cleared two of those items! :-DDD

Showering, laundry, and grocery shopping were almost less problematic than usual--pleasurable, even! I miraculously did not freeze to death drying off after the shower! I over-dried my laundry a little bit but caught it early enough so there was no damage. When shopping I got some flesh on discount and I also got a four-litre bottle for water, filled it with water, took a picture, and sent it off to mima so she can stop freaking out about that any second, now...

And I called the landlord about the sink--the [simulated] conversation I had imagined to prepare for it was far more complicated so when it came to the real deal it was pretty easy. The plumbers were just here! It was a super-simple fix, embarrassingly so, actually, but I had no way to know how to take off the drain cover so I got them to show me how. Now that I clearly understand the precise mechanism of this drain (they can be a little different from place to place...), I'll go out once more to get the stuff I need to maintain it properly. Japanese drains are kindof a disgusting horror, actually, so they really need pointed maintenance.

Anyway, that's how it's gone so far. Not too shabby...
