An art group

I was already awake before my smartphone alarm woke me up. There was a terrible thunderstorm outside, just like the weather forecasts had predicted. I went to the bathroom to take a pee, wondered if I should already get up and get going and also wash my greasy hair, but I went back to bed.
After my alarm woke me up, I snoozed for fifteen minutes and then I got up.

I took my morning medicine and biotin supplement, put on deodorant and face cream, and got dressed. I ate garlic and drank cocoa.

I took a bus to Calm Winds and called the counsellor on my way there; he advised me how to get there. It was easy peasy once I found the entrance.

The art group consisted of three elderly nice ladies, one of them was the counsellor. We introduced ourselves to each other, talked about our plans for the future groups, a bit about our lives, and then we went to another room. The counsellor read some poems, I read a haiku I had written in junior high when we were educated about haikus in our Finnish class and read two funny poems.

After the group, I caught a bus to the city center and went to Fountain House. I used the computer to go on the Internet and click all the free buttons on Greater Good website.

I took a train back home, went to the local library, and used one computer and one tablet for the donations, and picked up my requests; two children’s books and five X- Men DVDs. The X- Men character Nightcrawler is my newest fandom husbando.

I went back home, put the books and DVDs to the bookshelf, and read one of the books. I found a Pokémon card, a shiny Slowpoke, between the pages; it has probably been used as a bookmark. I taped it to my collage wall.
I took a shower, washed my hair and face, put lotion on my skin, and cleaned my teeth. I put on the same clothes I had been wearing.
I also shaved my chin and used the face muscle trainer.

I decided to go for an urbane adventure. I took a bus, then a subway to downtown, then a train to another town, then a bus to another, and then a subway back to downtown and then a train back home.
I picked up some trash, paid compliments to strange people, and bought some candy; a bag of Skittles, a box of chocolate raisins, and a Twix bar.

Once back home, I took my evening medicine, sprayed Nasonex into my nostrils, brushed my teeth, and dabbed lotion on my face.

My neck is breaking out, I have huge pimples on my throat and on the nape of my neck.

Tomorrow the first thing to do is to wash laundry.
I will receive money. I will go to the nearest bank to withdraw it; the ATM machines only allow bills to be withdrawn, but if I have, say, 54 euros and 65 cents in my bank account, I want to withdraw it all. I will buy some food, like oat milk and some fruits and vegetables. I also need to go to the supermarket downtown and buy a few cups of raw porridge so I will have breakfast until my next check.
I will go the library, then to the gym, and in the evening, me and Mirette will go to this annual happening called Night of the Arts.

On Friday, I will receive more money. I will go thrift store prowlin’ and go to all three vintage thrift stores in downtown. I will pay with my Visa Electron, so I can spend the rest of the money on online purchases. I will look for clothes, mainly dresses, and also pillowcases and duvet covers.
In the evening, if I have enough time, I will go to the sauna.
if I have enough money left after the thrift stores, I will order an “I love you to the Moon and back” ornament from Greater Good, a “Keeping up Appearances” fan t- shirt from Love Trend, and two tubes of Nuud deodorant from their website. As for the rest of the money, I need to buy the following things; coat hangers (I will use them to hang my dresses in the closet, I will not store them folded in the cupboard anymore because they will only get wrinkly and I never have enough patience to fold them properly), a ice pack (I will use it to treat my breasts; it is a well- known remedy that if you rub an ice cube or a cold pack against your breasts, they will get firmer. But I will only start doing it after the mammography, in case there isn’t anything wrong with my right breast), a name- day card for a friend, a box of pink ink refills for my pens, a pair of headphones, and interdental brushes and a bottle of organic mouthwash.

On Saturday, I will do the weekly housework; replace the towels, scrub the toilet bowl, take out the recycling.
I might also go to the gym, and I have to visit the local library.

On Sunday, I will do the weekly beautifying routines; wash and condition my hair, shave my armpits and chin, and do the twelve- step Korean skincare regiment.
I will go visit my parents, collect the weekly allowance, and call my granny.
