I hope my period starts soon, it was supposed to start this week. At least I haven’t had swollen, tender breasts, moodiness, or cramps yet.
I have had a slight flu this week; my throat is sore, I feel hot and sweaty, and my head hurts. At least I don’t have a fever, and I also don’t have the general spaced out feeling I have when I have the flu, so I have been able to do housework and go out for errands and such.
I had dreams about many different cities in Finland, in most of the dreams I had gotten stuck in a city far from home and desperately tried to find a way back to my hometown. They were really unhappy dreams.
I got up at quarter to one o’clock in the afternoon, put on a panda bear- patterned pyjama pants and a stripy shirt. Mo
I went to see my psychologist today, we had an appointment at half past one o’clock this afternoon. She performed some personality tests on me, and they made me feel a bit downcast; I feel as if I am some sort of a laboratory animal, or a savage that they’re trying to civilize.
After the appointment, we agreed to have the next appointment on next week’s Wednesday at three o’clock in the afternoon.
I made it to the bus 574 and travelled to Martinlaakso, I visited the local parish and asked them politely for a food coupon. Me and the parish worker talked for a moment, and then I was given a voucher for 25 euros. It’s not much, but it’s something.
I went to the S- Market in the new shopping center and bought a big block of cheese, a bag of oranges, a bag of tomatoes, a box of butter, a big carton of milk, two bags of rye bread, and a cucumber.
I hauled my shopping bag to the bus station and took the bus 572 to Myyrmäki. I don’t think I have ever taken that bus.
Laajavuori elementary school, the same that my brother used to attend, is being demolished. I don’t know what they’re going to build there.
Once in Myyrmäki, I went home and put the groceries to their rightful places.
My friends Suavecita and Elisa came to visit me later the day, they knew that I would be wearing pyjama pants when I answered the door.
We had fun, drinking coffee and orange juice and eating brownies that they had bought, taking friendship selfies, chatting and laughing. I managed to iron my brown Dirndl dress and a pillowcase and five small towels.
Later the day we left at the same time, Suavecita drove back to her own home and Elisa came with me to the post office where I mailed Luisita’s package.
I decided to go see my parents, so I took the bus 571 to Raappavuori. Once in my parents’ home, I noticed that they had a new ornament on their front door, a straw wreath with white plastic flowers.
My dad was home watching Django Unchained, and my mother had gone for a walk.
Later the evening I went home.
I didn’t bother with brushing my teeth because I didn’t want to leave my flu bugs into my toothbrush.
