I was supposed to go meet my therapist Jaana E. today, we were supposed to fill out some forms now that our working period is over.

I had set my alarm clock to ring at ten o’clock in the morning so I would get up in time; the appointment was supposed to be at noon, and I was thinking about taking the bus 39.

I had a dream where I was studying in college, fortunately my ever- so- trustworthy alarm clock woke me up because it was a miserable dream.

I got up, took my morning medicine, washed the crusty sleep off my eyes, and then put on my new dress; a button- up A- line dress made of bright orange terrycloth, with a suit collar. I put a tight black blouse and black stockings under it.

I took the bus 39 to Kamppi, the bus travelled past Pikku Huopalahti. I was thinking of visiting the park nearby, there are gorgeous sculptures. I just need to find out where exactly, so I can go there.

Once in my therapist’s office, I learned that today’s appointment was a regular 45 minutes of talking about my problems and that I didn’t need to fill out any forms.

After the appointment, I visited the thrift shops on Freda and Iso- Roba to see if there were any cute clothes for me to buy. I didn’t find decent clothes, but I found a knitted bedcover and some blankets with cute 70’s retro design that would look dashing in my home. I am going to buy them soon.

It was a real chore walking to the tram stop, it rained snow right into my face, I almost slipped and fell over, and I was freezing. At times like this I wish global warming would stop the snowfall, at least in Finland.

I took the P train to Myyrmäki, once back home I brushed my teeth and did some odd jobs before calling the pharmacy and asking how much do I have to pay for a new batch of anti- psychotic medicine. I was told it’s 331 euros. There’s no way in heaven or hell that me or my mom are going to afford that, so I guess I have to go to the social office to ask for a coupon.

Let’s see; that means I have to print an account statement from the last three months, and take a copy of the prescription form and the special permission for using a prescription antimedicine that isn’t yet allowed in Finland, and some sort of a statement about how much the medicine is going to cost. And I also need to fill out the application for income support, wait for a few hours, and hope that my social worker has had her morning coffee so she will be favourable.

I decided to go visit my mom, I called her and talked to her for a while. She said that I sound unhappy. I told her I am coming over to visit her.

I caught the bus 574 to Raappavuori, once in my parents’ home I drank coffee and watched the BBC Sherlock Xmas special The Abominable Bride that my mother had saved for me.

Later the day I decided to go to the hobby group in Myöhätuuli, mom was on her way to Varisto so we took the same bus.
In Myöhätuuli, the others were watching a Neo-Nazi- themed movie American History X. I didn’t know why they had picked such a morbid film, and watching it triggered me a bit so I went to another room to write into my diary.
I drank a cup of cocoa, and another cup of coffee, and ate some popcorn. Then I decided to leave.

I took the bus 311 to Myyrmäki, went to the Myyrmanni shopping center to hang around for a while, and then headed home.

I watched an episode of Doctor Who, the one with the eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond. I really enjoyed it, I guess I am warming up to the eleventh Doctor, even if I have an unholy love for the tenth Doctor.

My smartphone alarm woke me up at nine o’clock in the morning, I turned it off and went back to bed. Later I got up approximately at 10:48 in the morning.
I had had bad dreams; all the trees in my hometown were cut down in order to build fancy houses for rich people. It’s already happening in my hometown.
I took my morning medicine, and put on the pine green long- sleeved lace dress I had worn during Xmas, and turned on my laptop to log in to the online bank service. I had received 85 euros.

I went to the bank to withdraw the money, then I went to the Myyrmanni shopping center and used the cash point to print out my account statement, and then went to the social office to fill out some forms.
There was plenty of people in the social office, from all walks of life. There was a TV bolted to the wall, it showed a talk show where local ex- celebrities talked about exercising, low- fat yoghurt and face masks.
I fished a mechanical pencil out of my pencil case (I need to get a new pencil case) and noticed that I had picked the wrong form, it was for announcing your new bank account. I picked a new form, and hoped it was the right one.
I filled it out as well as I could, and almost forgot to sign it. I gave it to the receptionist, the one who is very jolly and friendly. I told him it’s for receiving a coupon to buy an expensive prescription medicine.

It was cold outside, but I barely noticed it.

After that, I went to the toy shop and bought a My Little Pony duvet set. Then I went to Glitter and bought a pendant, it’s like a silver- plated frame with pink glass jewels.
I also visited Citymarket to buy a carton of milk, and some of my favorite treats.
Underpants were in discount, so I bought tree pink ones and three mint green ones.

Once back home, I washed a load of laundry and scrubbed the toilet bowl.

I decided to head out again, this time to Helsinki.

I caught the bus 560 to Mellunmäki, then the subway to Kaisaniemi. I visited the euro shop, and noticed that they had some knockoff My Little Pony figures and other nice and sweet and cute things for sale, I decided to buy them on Friday when I would receive more monies.
I took a subway to Kamppi, and visited the stationery shop to swoon at the new selection of diaries, and jewel stickers that were in discount.
I took another subway to the Central Railway Station, and visited Cybershop.

I took the P train to Myyrmäki and went home. It was getting late, so I took my evening medicine and noticed that I don’t have any of the Solian medicine left for tomorrow; then I realized that I still have one foil left in cosmetics purse. I had enough of the aforementioned medicine left until next Wednesday, and hopefully I would get more tomorrow.
