And also, I tried to change the date into "Dec 1st 11:30", but LiveJournal is trolling me once again and won't allow me to do it.
Anyway, in the morning I got up very early. These days I seem to woke up very early, then I sleep a bit more and get up somewhere between 5 or 9 o'clock in the morning.
I watched Silent Hill 2 gameplay videos and Silent Hill 4 cutscenes on a YouTube channel named "fungo". If you're into Silent Hill, go check it out!
After taking a shower and dressing up, I opened the curtains. It was still dark outside, but it was fairly nice to see the sky change colors as the sun rose; infinite blackness, deep blueish turquoise and golden yellow where the sun was rising. I knew it was going to be a sunny day.
Later the day, I went to the grand opening of Martinlaakso shopping center. I decided to walk there as the weather was nice enough.
There was still no snow, but the streets were covered in thin ice and I knew it was only a matter of time when someone would slip and fall down. Nevertheless, the sun shone from the completely cloudless sky and the temperature was pleasantly nippy.
I don't mind if there won't be any snow for Christmas; I know that Christmas will come anyway, snow or no snow. Of course it would be nice if we got a white Christmas, but it's also nice that I, or other people, don't have to trudge knee- deep in snowdrifts with hailstorm blowing straight into our faces.
The new mall was really interesting, there was a video renting and a LIDL store and a nail salon and other cool places. It felt nice to know that Martinlaakso is modernized; it would be nice if Kellokoski and Rautalampi and other one- horse towns had shopping malls among the fields or in the middle of the forests; oh, have so wicked thoughts.
I took the bus 453 to Helsinki, I wanted to visit Sokos to buy body lotion, I had run out of Aqualan L very quickly.
I was thinking of buying green tea body lotion, but chose Vaseline instead as it was cheaper.
I wandered from shop to shop, thought of buying hipster glasses, looked for Christmas presents and felt very jubilant, even when I remembered that I should have taken two bills to the social office. Well, maybe later.
I took the bus 453 back to Martinlaakso, visited the LIDL store to buy strawberry juice as I was feeling thirsty, then I took the bus 53 to Myyrmäki and went home.
For the rest of the evening, I watched Silent Hill: Shattered Memories walkthrough videos on YouTube and ate chocolate.
