A Very Nice Day
Today was sweet! First, it stopped snowing and the temperature went up to about the high fifties. It was sunny and there was no wind and in general it was a badass day.
I got out of bed around noon and proceeded to take a bath and get ready for the day. My goal for the day was to set up a bank account. The banks here in Japan open at 9am and close at 3pm. I got there at 2pm and did not leave the Bank of Kyoto until about 3:30. It was a little difficult but one girl there knew a little English so that helped. I now have a bank account. Now I just need money to put into it. I get paid on the 24th and that day cannot come fast enough. I have less than two hundred dollars to my name and eighty of it will go to train fares over the next five days. I am going to be in a classroom in Toyooka and the train ride costs about $19.50 each day. I have to go there for four days starting on Wednesday.
I was able to also get cleaning detergent today and a handtowel to dry dishes with. All in all, it was a productive day. I found another shopping place and with it, cheap rice cookers and microwaves. I will be picking up at least a microwave when I get paid.
Right now, I am on the roof of my apartment building typing this and eating pizza flavored Doritos. They are not that good but I figured I would give them a shot. Anything Italian is really big here right now due to the Olympics. McDonalds even has cheese nuggets and some other items that are supposed to be Italian on its menu.
Anywho, it has been a very nice day. To think that a year ago today, was the day that Mushi and I split up seems so far away and so long ago. Lots of stuff has happened since then and I am definitely happier now. It is very peaceful to be on the roof of a building and be able to see the city and hear all of its sounds and have no one know that I am up here watching and listening....and stealing the internet.
Anywho, time to go do some laundry and get something to eat.
