August 19th, 2019



Last night I slept pretty badly. I kept drifting in and out of sleep, and I was already awake before my smartphone alarm woke me up.

I got up, took my biotin supplement and morning medicine, got dressed, and didn’t bother with having a proper wash.

I went to see my mother outside the grocery shop, and then my mother texted me and asked me to come to the municipal service point. She gave me the monthly and weekly allowance at the same time, I bought a new travel card and recharged it and also bought a pretty pink reflective cover.
We were thinking of going to a furniture shop to buy me a new mattress, but most of the shops were still closed because it was too early, the clock wasn’t even ten in the morning.

Mom went back to her own home, I went back home, and took a nap. Later in the afternoon I went to the social office where I met my care worker, we had an appointment with my social worker. We discussed the continuation of the care worker’s services, and we agreed to extend it for six months.

We went together to my home where I washed the dishes, fortunately there wasn’t such a big amount of them.

We agreed for the next appointment on September fourth, Wednesday, at quarter past eleven o’clock in the morning.

I went out and took a bus to downtown, and then a subway to another town. I went to a clothing shop called New Yorker, and bought a new crop top; it’s black and has two daisy patterns, and the text “You can be whatever you want to be”. I have decided to buy one article of clothing each payday from that shop, they sell the most amazing clothes!

I went to a stationery shop and bought three greeting cards and a postage stamp. I took a subway to the city center and then a train back to my hometown.
On the train, I called my mother and agreed with her that we will go buy the new mattress on Thursday. We also agreed that now that the weather is getting colder and rainier, we need to purchase me a pair of Gore- Tex shoes. I also need a new laptop because the old one is falling apart.

I went to the supermarket and bought two pairs of black leggings, they were in discount. I went back home, cut the price tags off the leggings and the shirt and put them into the laundry basket.

I put on my gym clothes and decided to leave for the gym at the same time when Mirette goes to a sleepover.

Once at the gym, I did some stretches and then I used the cross- trainer. It made my shins hurt, so I switched to the treadmill instead.

I had wanted to walk for an hour, but I was getting thirsty and not to mention that I didn’t want to stay at the gym too long because it was already half past six o’clock. I went back home, and zomg I smelled of sweat because I ran out of roll- on deodorant a while ago and I still haven’t ordered Nuud deodorant; the one with only 10 organic ingredients in a biodegradable tube.

Tomorrow morning, right after getting up, I will take a shower and wash my hair.
I will go visit my friend and give him a name- day card. Then I will go to Twinkle café.

On Wednesday, I will go to the art group in Calm Winds, then to the swimming pool. In the evening, I will go to a sing- along in the local amusement park.

On Thursday, me and my mother will go to the nearest furniture shop to buy a new mattress. I might go to the Fountain House on the same day.

On Friday, I will wash my hair before I have an appointment with my usual hairdresser; I will have the dry tips of my hair cut off in layers, and also have an Olaplex treatment. After that, I will go to the dressmaker to pay them for the mended clothes.

On Saturday, I will do the weekly housework; take out the recycling, replace the towels, scrub the toilet bowl.
I will go to a block party at Mirette’s old hometown.

On Sunday, I will do the weekly beautifying routines; shave my armpits and chin, wash my hair, and do the twelve- step Korean skincare regiment.
I will go visit my parents so that my father can give me the weekly allowance. I will call my granny once I am there.
