Well, my Fuji … adventure is over.
The doors in my apartment building have a bolt in the closer that loves to get loose, and when it does it doesn’t stay open properly. My inner Monk doesn’t let me ignore that, I just have to fix that.
Bikes with loose chains where the rider is complaining I also invite over for a quick fix.
The eclipse occurred during class, so everyone went to the window to look. It was mostly hidden behind a layer of clouds, so I didn’t even bother taking a picture of that, just the reaction.
(This is my new class, in the same classroom)
This quarter’s target
3 months ago I couldn’t do things like speaking well or reading a newspaper, but now I am slowly becoming able to do those things.
But, I still have a lot of things I can’t do yet. I probably will not be able to read all of the newspaper, but I want to be able to read more.
Therefore, I plan to read manga. Before being able to speak Japanese well, I think I have to study grammar and vocab. I plan to talk to many Japanese people.
I have to keep my apartment above a certain level of cleanliness or else I have cockroaches, mold, the burnable trash stinks, and the floor gets covered in lint.
- Burnable trash
- Bottles (PET, cans, glass and milk cartons are all separate, but I sort them at Seiyu, so they have one trash bag)
- non-burnable trash (There is surprisingly little of this. In 3 months, I haven’t even filled up a small trashbag yet)
The categories aren’t optional, trash has to be sorted like that. For most people the different kinds of trash are picked up on different days, but I have access to a dumpster so I can take care of trash whenever.
I am surprised at how clean I am keeping my apartment. Dishes get washed, the burnable trash is emptied weekly, the trash can is wiped down throughly with my green-tea scented multi-surface cleaner. If I had access to chickens I would probably empty food trash every day to keep the smell from becoming a problem. I mop about every 2 weeks.
