Family, Social life
Why is it that we can't just get together and have fun without having an excuse to? On Friday, I was lonely, so I called my dad and invited him over. The excuse I used was that I had finished downloading those episodes of The Twilight Zone that we remember from my childhood - he was really excited about it when I told him I had found a torrent for it. I called Aniki too, but he couldn't make it, so it was just my dad and I. We made a good dinner, and watched a couple of episodes. Drank vørterøl, a kind of non-alcoholic beer which I'm not sure has an english-language counterpart. I know it's not root beer, but maybe something close.
I had an appointment with my doctor on Tuesday, and got something for my ear infection. It's much better already; I really hope this will finish it off instead of leaving it to linger like last time. Then maybe I can fly again instead of having all my foreign friends come visit me.
I went to see an apartment on Friday. It was really nice, I liked it. It wasn't perfect, but I think I could have been happy there. I didn't get it, of course, but I went there and I'm proud of myself for not chickening out.
I've had a lot of absences lately.. Mostly because I am utterly exhausted every morning and only become capable of doing much of anything by the time I'd just have ten minutes there until I'd have to go home again. I don't stay up that late, and I don't wake up all that many times during the night, and I don't always lie awake for three hours before I can fall asleep either.. Maybe I have a critical deficiency of some vitamin or something. Maybe it's just a side effect of being depressed. I'm so glad therapy isn't before 2 PM, or I'd have a hard time even attending that.
I'm doing okay.. Still spending more than I should on retail therapy. They were out of the bamboo yarn they had on sale, so I got some really expensive tea and two more volumes of The Walking Dead instead. I'm still on a zombie kick. And when I look for apartments, I reflexively think of how safe it'd be in the event of a zombie outbreak. -_-
I started over with thicker needles for the bamboo shopping bag I'm trying to make. This is a lot more cost efficient, lighter, faster. Not as pretty, but I was aiming more for functional anyhow.
