I've changed my apartment layout a little, and it's a nice change. I'm lucky to have two stories in my place, but truth is, it's so tiny overall. I have been living here for one year now. It's one of my favourite Japan homes, and the all-white decor is soothing (although I tend to pile up clothes in every corner lately). Sometimes I forget how small apartments are in Japan, as I've gotten used to it. My wish list currently involves an oven, a separate bath and toilet, two gas burners, a small kitchen table and chairs, and a bed that's not next to the fridge. Welcome to Tokyo! I still think it's all worth it to experience life in one of the most exciting cities in the world. The question is, how long will I think this is amazing?
I've tried to keep this week fun-filled, complete with a home cooked dinner and wine with my neighbours (and fellow former Shikoku-ites) Jonathan and Jordan, a cafe and diary night with my boy (Moleskines + cooking up some plans), and bookstore nights in Daikanyama.
Winter is good- I'd take any day of this chilly weather over the August heat.
