|My cold must-haves: vanilla-scented Sugarbunnies tissues,|
organic blueberry juice, and the #1 wafer in Italy
Things have not been too exciting this week, I was plagued with a horrible cold- since when do I get sick when it's warm and sunny out, when I managed to stay perfectly healthy all winter? I probably caught something while partying last weekend, as my fragile body is not used to smokey rooms and all-night karaoke sessions anymore...
In other news, I'm happy to have finally resolved (read: paid) my apartment debacle, which had been going on for several weeks and was stressing me out so much. Real estate can be a real nightmare in Japan- renting a simple apartment is a complex procedure (especially for a non-Japanese), not to mention costly. Changing guarantors and re-writing a contract will cost you all the move-in fees, all over again. Lesson learned: don't let your company be your guarantor unless you plan to work there for many, many years.
I can now finally relax in a home that's mine, and right now stability is one of the most important things I'm longing for. Stability while living abroad- does it make sense?
