I got lazy. I didn’t head out in the morning for the event finals.
Around 1130, I texted E-san to find out how the event went.
She told me that the group I was supporting didn’t go through to the finals, but it seems like they felt like they did their best and are happy with their result. They also received a lot of valuable critiques from the judges, so I’m sure it helped them grow a lot. I hope from the bottom of my heart that they this will be a springboard that propels them to a greater height in the future.
I spent the afternoon cleaning my apartment. My predecessor left a lot of junk. Like a WHOLE lot of junk. You know what’s worse than having to clean out other people’s junk? It is having to clean it in a place like Japan where you have to sort every goddamn thing. This icky frying pan… is metal and have to be placed separately. Expired food in a plastic bottle…. I don’t even want to open the bottle to pour out the waste.. *cringe cringe
You should see my face for the whole of this afternoon. Everything I had to clear made me cringe. Even after I finished my bentou lunch that I purchased from the supermarket nearby, I had to sort that out after I finished eating it. Their innards have to be cleaned, with the small bits of food waste placed into the food waste plastic bag, and the plastic boxes in another bag. These bags also need to be tied up, or else there’s a risk of them attracting unwanted insects. It really is a hassle. I’m starting to miss my hometown…
