A better day :)

Last night I probably had dreams that I have forgotten by now. Mostly these days I have had dreams of days when the earth is covered with snow that is as fluffy and white as the clouds in the sky, and perhaps about geocaching and still attending school after graduating, just to please my mother.
I got up in the morning before my smartphone alarm was supposed to ring. I took my morning medicine and biotin supplement, dabbed lotion on my face, and got dressed; I wore one of the second- hand dresses I had bought from the thrift store last week.

I sat on my bed, but for some reason I didn’t feel like lying down and going to deep slumber. For some reason, every time I go back to bed after taking my morning medicine, I sleep all the way to the evening.

I called my mother and asked her if I can come over to collect the monthly allowance, she said I can because she was just walking home from the ATM machine.

I went to the nearest ATM machine to withdraw the money I had received today and bought a cold- smoked salmon bagel and gave the bakery worker a tip. I also gave some change to an African charity.

I walked to my parents’ home; once there, mom gave me the monthly allowance. We had coffee together.

I walked to the newsagent and recharged my travel card. Then I caught a train to another town, where I bought a fancy mug of cocoa and gave the coffee house worker some tip.
Eleclya arrived later, we went to a restaurant where Mirette was having a scrumptious cheese salad; after she had had her fill, we ate the rest of it. I just made a mess on the table and played with the plastic potted plant on the table.

We went to a science center, there was an exhibition about dinosaurs. I learned that carnivores were smaller and more agile, and herbivores were larger and clumsier. I also got to use virtual reality goggles where I saw the world through the viewpoint of a hatching dinosaur baby; when my dino- mommy looked at me with adoration in her reptile eyes, I almost melted with happiness.

Then we went to another exhibition about the function and health of human brain. There was a room where you could dance, another room where you could lie down and watch electric canvas flowers bloom in the ceiling, and another room where you were supposed to pick a small piece of dark chocolate from a glass jar and let it melt in our mouths; I picked a handful and stuffed them into my mouth.

After the science center was closed, we took the same train to our respective homes. I got off at my stop and went to the supermarket where I bought a pair of fancy gloves, grey with lighter grey lace trimming and a small tuft of fur. I also bought some greeting cards.
I also bought some postage stamps, and then I went to the stationery shop to buy a big packet of refills for my ink pens.

I went to the library and did the usual charitable business, then I went to the grocery shop to buy the basic groceries.

I went back home, put all my new belongings to their rightful places, and put the trash into recycling.
Then I started working on the greeting cards that I am sending out tomorrow.

I took my evening medicine and sprayed Nasonex into my nostrils, and then I brushed my teeth, shaved my chin hairs, and emptied my MoonCup.

I ran out of knitting yarn, but my mom will give me more on Sunday.

I must say, today I felt calmer and happier. I didn’t have the slightest bit of an existential crisis, or the wish to be someone else or the wish to be somewhere else.

I spent the rest of the evening watching the second season of The Good Place.

Tomorrow I will do the weekly housework; I need to tidy up the bathroom, take out the recycling, change the towels, and wash laundry. I also think I should take up the habit of doing the housecleaning twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I will tidy up the bathroom and take out the recycling.
I also need to go to the pharmacy to pick up my painkillers and mood controllers, send the greeting cards I bought today, and then I will go to the library.
I will go to the amusement park to check out the Halloween vibes; I will dress up as a witch.

On Sunday, the first thing to do is to go to the library to do the charitable work.
I will visit my friend Rige, and then I will go visit my parents.
My father will give me the weekly allowance, and I will call my granny.
