It's a good thing that the sun rises earlier, it has improved my sleeping pattern. Now I can manage to get up earlier in the morning.

I took a shower this morning, not because I was feeling dirty but I reasoned that I had taken a shower last Saturday and now would be a good time to do so again.

After having a breakfast, I turned on my laptop, logged in to my online bank account and noticed that I had received 82,50 euros. Last month my weekly allowance was 120 euros.

I did some errands, I took out the garbage, took one bag of clothing to a charity shop, returned some books to the library and then I went to the bank to withdraw the money. I left ten euros to my account.

I went to S- Market and bought a packet of toilet paper. Then I went to Myyrmanni shopping mall, I was supposed to go to Life to buy vitamin supplements but I forgot. So I went to Citymarket and bought a sufficient amount of food and hygiene products to serve me for a week, and also enough ankle socks. All my old ones have holes in them, so I bought some more durable ones.

I had to leave some of my purchases on the counter when paying for them, because I couldn't afford them all.
I took the rest of the socks, food and hygiene products back home, feeling a bit downcast. I reminded myself that I would receive more money on Friday.

Once home, I put the groceries into their rightful places, had a little snack and then it was time to go see my psychotherapist, we had an appointment at half past one o'clock in the afternoon.

I took the bus 39 to Kamppi and made it to the appointment. During the session I felt like I wanted to talk about my past but then I realized that we have been discussing my past many times.

After the session we made a new appointment on March 31st at quarter to one o'clock in the afternoon.

I visited K- Supermarket in the Kamppi shopping center to buy some snack and also a new lip balm, the old one I had been using wouldn't soothe and moisturize my lips at all.

I took the subway to Hakaniemi and went to Girls' House. I spent the afternoon drinking cocoa and writing into my diary about my day so far.

After leaving, I visited two shops in Kaisaniemi, Fiorella and H&M. I loved all their clothes and decided to buy some before they're gone for good.

I took the bus 453 to Martinlaakso, then the bus 530 to Myyrmäki. I visited some of my favorite shops and then headed back home.

Once home, I took the price tags off the socks I had bought and decided to wash them as I usually do with my new clothes, whether store- bought or secondhand.

Unfortunately my washing machine got jammed, I called an ASPA worker who is responsible for renovations and fixing broken machinery, but zie told me that broken washing machines are not hir area of responsibility, but nevertheless zie advised me how to fix it, and now it works. I agreed to call hir later to let hir know if the program is finished properly.

☮ I have been thinking of buying myself a small potted cactus or perhaps three ones, I have a proper windowsill in my kitchen where to keep them. It would be lovely if they sprouted flowers. There's a flower shop named Bieder in the Myyrmanni shopping mall, they sell three small potted cacti in neat packages.

☮ I will receive money on Friday, about 108 euros. I need to buy more food and hygiene products and the vitamin supplements, perhaps some ankle socks and brassieres and clothes, and also purchase a ticket to the movie Kingsman and then buy a birthday gift and a card to Pinky; zie said hir birthday party is going to be a potluck, so I will buy some cheezy poofs and perhaps some cupcakes.

☮ Tomorrow will be a busy day; I am going to have an appointment in the social office with my ASPA worker at two o'clock in the afternoon, at three o'clock I will have an appointment with another social worker at the psychiatric clinic and at five o'clock I will meet Eija in the Museum of Natural Science.

☮ Considering the amount of dirty mugs in my kitchen basin, I have decided to use one mug for water, milk, coffee, tea or whatever I drink, and rinse it with water every time after drinking something else than water out of it. And of course, change into another mug every time I wash dishes.

☮ I have been doing okay today, I have had no emotional crises. Probably the worst thing today was when I couldn't afford all the groceries I had wanted to buy and had to leave some on the counter, but then again, I managed to buy most of it and also, I will receive more money on Friday. Another bad thing was when my washing machine stopped working, but I called an ASPA worker and zie advised me on how to fix it, and now it works like a charm.
