So, I went to get my nails done again. My nails grow super
fast. So I wanted to go get them filled in but she ended up doing them all over again. She gave me a 10% discount because they had grown so much in only 2 weeks, but I still had to pay 6,600 yen. Shit! I went for a slightly darker pink this time so now you can actually see the gradation. I feel so girly!
So the next time I take money out of the bank, I'm going to be dipping into my savings. I am putting myself under house arrest until pay day except for Andrew's birthday next week. I love how I suggest a quiet hang out dinner at home and it's turned into a huge outting. I should have just made the plans myself instead of asking for opinions. This is what happens when Blake takes the helm. I talked them out of doing nomihodai (who the hell is going to drink enough to make it worth it on a Monday except for Andrew?) but it's still going to be 3,800 or something for dinner. I am kind of bitter because I didn't even spend that much on my own birthday and no one organized or paid for me. Correction: Really bitter. So I'm giving myself a budget of 20,000 yen until next payday. I bought some more cereal and milk so breakfast is covered -- I have coffee at work so I shouldn't buy any on the way to work. Lunch is covered. It's really only dinner I have to worry about. I should take a good look at what's in my kitchen and plan to use what I've got. It'll have to buy less and use things up and I've had for ages. What can I use soybeans for? I should check my Cooking Navi.
I'm reading Fast Food Nation right now. Super interesting. I wonder if it's going to ruin my love of McDonald's forever. Although I watched Super Size Me and I was alright after about 2 weeks.
Picture from the other day: Kumi and I reunite after 10 years! I was stalking people on Facebook and seeing how so many people I used to work with or go to school, or even from childhood, have gotten so huge. Like, I shouldn't throw stones because I'm not the smallest girl but it took me a while to even recognize them, they'd put on so much weight. Fuck losing the wait, if I can maintain what I am, I'll be happy.
I wrote an email to mom and dad today and updated them on the move home/school plan. I'm kind of weirded out by the fact that I am hoping to get into U of T or York so I can live at home for a while. I've been out of the house for 6 years now and only seen my family about 2 weeks once a year on average since then. It's not so much that I miss them... I mean, I do, but it's more like I feel kind of guilty. I know mom wants to fix up the house to sell it (eventually) but dad isn't home that often and she's tired from work. It's probably about time for me to repaint the basement again. And I don't think the living room has been done yet either. I know the biggest reason that I hate Ontario is because I don't have a social network there. But once I get a job or get back into school, I'll meet people. I'm not too worried about that. Or I'll take up a hobby or something. I found out how to get certified by the BC Teacher's College if you study outside the province so it's just a matter of getting it transferred and then finding a job in BC. What I'm scared of, though, is going to school in Ontario and getting stuck there.
