18th July 2015


I had set my alarm clock to ring at eleven o'clock in the morning, but managed to get up before that.
I called my friends Elyseé and Suavecita, and we agreed that Suavecita will pick up me and Elyseé from Myyrmäki station at half past two o'clock in the afternoon, and drive us to Hyrylä where we will go to Heidi's summer party.

I spent most of the day doing housework, I had the usual "I don't wannaaahhh..." feeling but I managed to hoover and mop the floor, and wash many loads of laundry. I should also wash the curtains, they're a bit dusty.

Later the day I went to Citymarket to buy a bar of soap, and some treats. I only use bars of soap to wash my body with, shower gels have all kinds chemicals in them and come in plastic bottles that are impossible to recycle, and they have to be applied with sponges that are also hard to recycle.

I spent most of the midday washing laundry, and writing into my diary. I have kind of lost my interest in knitting, I would love to knit something but I don't know what to do with it once it's finished.

In the afternoon I went to see Elyseé in Myyrmäki station, Suavecita picked us up on hir car and drove us to Hyrylä. We had fun time, telling jokes and laughing and recalling weird memories.

Once in Hyrylä, we went to Heidi & Jari's apartment. There were our friend Ansku, Suski, Anna, and Mervi, and we all got along pretty well.
Jari, Heidi's fiancee, was the only male person in the party, but zie didn't seem to mind.

We had fun time, we ate treats, drank coffee, took photos, laughed and joked around. Suavecita suggested that me and hir go to Tallinn this summer, and Heidi suggested that me, Elyseé, and Suavecita accompany hir some day when zie goes shopping to Morticia, a gothic clothing shop. Heidi also asked me if zie can come for a sleepover to my home one day, I said it was okay and zie was welcome.
We all got along pretty well.

Later the day Suavecita drove me and Elyseé to Myyrmäki, by then it had started raining. I stayed with Elyseé until the train arrived, then I went back home.

I washed another load of laundry, and that's all the housework I am going to do today.

I tried to do the face muscle exercises I haven't done for a while, while eating a carrot. I am a proud fitness fanatic.

Tomorrow I am going to do the rest of the housework; I will clean up the bathroom, that is, scrub the basin and toilet bowl and mop the floor and the shower walls. I have to swab the kitchen counters and writing desk and bookshelf, dust my artifacts, take the carpet out to dust it, hoover and mop the floor from under the furniture, wash the dishes, wash even more laundry, stuff like that.

I am also going to visit my parents. I have decided that from now on when I go see my parents on Sundays, I will go there after midday because my parents won't exactly be pleased if I barge in when they have barely gotten up from their beds.

- I have noticed that these days I have a very poor appetite, and I also don't get hungry at all. I guess my metabolism has slowed down, I don't know why. But it's not a good thing because I don't want to starve myself, and I don't want to deny myself of important nutrients.
I have been advised to take some sort of medicine that boosts my appetite, but to be honest, I don't feel like taking more and more medicine to every sort of a not- well- being, and besides, then it might get out of hand and my appetite won't be satisfied.
But fortunately I came up with a trick; usually when I eat a raw carrot, it makes my stomach feel empty because it's hard to digest. Then I get the feeling that I should fill my stomach, and I start craving for Karelian pies, or a sandwich, or tuna with sunflower oil (I have started eating more oily fish since it raises the serotonin amount in your body). Carrots taste good enough, especially Finnish summer carrots, and they have lots of vitamins.

- I have gotten lots of pimples to the edge of my face and jawline, on my neck and shoulders and and bosom and shoulder blades. I have decided not to seek treatment, I will just continue to live healthily.

- I have decided to start bicycling more often, it's all a good exercise and it gets me easily from one place to another. Now that I have a decent bicycle, a decent crash helmet and a decent bicycle pump, it would be horrid not to use them.

- I have managed to brush my teeth every morning and evening, I will also start flossing my teeth every evening before brushing my teeth. I'm glad that I have managed to take better care of my hygiene, I have brushed my teeth more often than I skip brushing them.
