my apartment is clean!

Again. I shouldn~t let it get so messy. It~s too small for that.

I went and bought more tatami mats to cover the flooring so i don~t kill it. I~m regretting not buying more of the one I bought before. It was cheeper and made nicer. Ah well. At least my floor won~t die. And I love the smell. And everyone keeps telling me I~m not American for saying that cause apparently Americans generally hate the smell.

heh. Never in my life have I been called normal anyway.

I also finally have a shower curtain. It really brightens my bathroom up a lot. I was waiting to find a green curtain but I gave up cause my towel getting wet just irritates the daylights out of me. I picked the least ugly one.


Oh and I just want to let you know how to leave comments here. On the page where you see my entry there~s what I~m writing now and then just at the bottom of what I~ve written there~s a link that says 0 comments or 1 comment. Click that and on the top right of the next page there~s a white box you can type in. There should also be a place to enter your name. Just submit that. It should be in English...but google tends to do its own thing with my language settings.

In other happenings I~ve decided that Chuck Berry~s bassist had huge hands. Ow~~~!σ(^◇^;)。。。 pain.

I have clean clothes!

And two extra parts for the pipe connection....which may explain the water spurting everywhere.

It~s a good thing the washer~s outside and I don~t pay for city water!

My kitchen

Taken by me standing inside of my bathroom.

I wonder when it~ll stop creeping me out.....

I have a rice cooker now though so I~m gonna have to get over it eventually and cook food in there.

A picture

I~d put more but I can only attatch one at a time on my phone.

This is at a park. It~s small and right of a main road but the trees make me feel like I~m in a nice secluded area.

It spans about 2/3 of the walk between Nishidai, the last station on my pass, and Takashimadaira, the next station. My friend lives there and I know the town pretty well so lately I~ve been walking it often. It~s not too far and it~s pretty. I could pay to take the subway but even on a hot day like today it~s just really nice to walk through.

Nightmare

I guess I~ve been dreaming more often lately. Last night was wierd. I had a nightmare that I woke up from and realized I~d been crying in my sleep. And Lindsey apparently had a really bad nightmare too.

I dreampt I was at the airport on my way to Michigan and I realized I had forgotten to get a re-entry permit. In my dream that meant I couldn~t leave the country. In reality it makes it really difficult to get back in. So dream me was incredibly upset-in the hysterical crying sort of way. All my big stressors from the last few months came out..homesick, money, GEOS, all of it. In the end the airport official-who looked remarkably like the nonpsychotic office lady at my school made it all better, but I still woke up with a not so good feeling and was a bit distressed all morning.

Not to worry though. I already had been planning on getting the permit in two Mondays from now cause I have the day off.

my eye itches

I got a stick in my eye today. Fortunately I saw it coming and closed my eye in time. Now I~m just a little scratched and the corner itches like mad.
