Physically: Woke up with headache but nothing super bad. Took a Paracetamol (750 mg) and it passed.

Skipped the thick jacket when i went out in the afternoon. Physically:  Emotionally: Frustrations when shortly before midnight last night the power went out and the wifi…. power came back but internet didnt. I have already used up all data on my cell… mostly because the wifi has been more down than working the past month. So I couldnt congratulate T as planned but hoping that net would be working in the morning so I could congratulate him before his birthday was over in Japan. I set the alarm at 8 am but no……I tried to go back to sleep but in my mind the upsetness was taking over. Around 9 am I went to restart the router and Yay shortly thereafter the wifi came back…. a few mintues before midnight and the end of Tetsuya’s  birthday in Japan I was finally able to send him my congratulations.

=========

01-10-2020 Friday *due to power outage in the evening of 01-10 this was noted on 1-11-2020 meaning i already lost some recollection of things like weather and what i bought at cornershop

Weather: Sunny and not too cold

Physically: When I walked to the factory around noon my left hip and left shoulder hurt really bad.

Emotionally: On a roll…..maybe its the fyll moon, maybe itäs because I feel I have smething else to be happy about so the frustrations with work dimishes… maybe it’s because Veronica hasnt’t bothered me a lot lately… or most likely it’s a combinatioion of all of the above.

When I went to corner shop the sun had already set. I was sunny and my guess it was pretty much like yesterday. It looks like it will be yet a cold night. Sky is clear and now at midnight it’s +11C and will go down to lowest 4 degrees or so at 6AM Physically: I was again fine until about 6PM when my left shoulder and neck started hurting. Emotionally: Focused. Determined and hard working … on my own projects the whole day. Had a fight with Mischa who acted immaturly and deactivated and reactivated his WhatsApp account several times over the course of the day. Oh well I got pissed .. it happens but it didnt affect my work capacity today. I have stuff to do which I did. Wake up: 10ish Went to bed:  Today’s tasks: I intended to go to the office because I was supposed to get paid, when Lalo said it might not happen today I stayed home. It is too cold at the office.

My office was freezing cold Physically: No headache, but my shoulders still hurt a lot Emotionally: Amazed and stoked how universe keeps telling me to move on with my project. Last night I was pondering upon game pieces and how to produce them for my prototype.  Since yesterday I was so happy learning that my neighbor actually works as an engineer at a company who produces  containers, boxes and yes can do prototypes and small quantity production. Then today….What are the odds: A random person writes in an expat group on Facebook, asking what peoples’ professions are. A woman posts this as a reply: Digital and Plastic Artist, and sculptor. I sent her a message and included some gamepieces and explained these are tiny things. But sure she can do it. She wants to know more but I am careful before having an NDA in place unless she calls… so yeah, I am happy! Wake up: 8:00AM Went to bed:  Today’s tasks: Continue to edit Production meeting with Lalo, Marina and Suzana I was wearing my jacket even if it was 24 C because I knew the office would be freezing cold. Other tasks/happenings: When I got to work around 1:30 PM Lalo still wasn’t there but the factory workers had arranged a communal lunch. so lol an hour with them so like until 2:30 and then only there until around 4 pm when I head out to the nail salon and from there home… didnt work any 8 hours today Besides when I was in the office I did a lot of research for my own project and the production meeting didn’t last more than 25 minutes ha ha ha Total walk distance: My phone says 1.9 km Im not sure if it measures correctly… I thought distance to work is only a km but I could be wrong, plus then there was a little walking at work and by the nailsalon… but 1.9 sounds too much…. Food: Breakfast: 2 areepas w avocado (the remaining 2/3 from yesterday lunch: Tortillas from the grill and some kind of beef meat.. really not that much Evening meal:  2 arepas with 1/2 avocado Drink: Coffee, pine apple soda x 3 super tiny glasses maybe total 4-5 dl,  Coffee at the nail salon, Rooibos tea Daily expenses: cig MEX$ 63  *realizing that maybe the corner store charges more than OXXO never paid much attention since I usually buy more than just cigarettes, but maybe the 57 pesos at oxxo is before tax… need to compare this next time I am oxxo. Nails done today by Michelle at Studio R in the Mall “San Miguel”. Love the silver mirror like nails and the pink is quite good too!! Left hand has pink on ring- and little  finger.  
01-07-2020 Tuesday Weather: sunny and cold. High of +17C. According to forecast it will go down to +2 tonight , well technically it might be toomorrow morning around 6am temp is lowest Physically: Surprisingly fine. No headache but slight pain in shoulders.

Weather: Nice and warmer Sunny! Didnt last through the evebing though..chilly atfer 6pm.

Physically: Really bad day. Woke up at 4 am with throbbing headache. Tried to go back to sleep. Was out of acitaminophen/paracetamol. Drifted in and out of sleep until around 9 am when my alarm went off to sent email to Veronica. The pain kept on being bad to worse. I messaged Lalo around 10 am that I needed meds. Then I found , probably the very last Bufferin from Japan. Popped 2 and went to make coffee hoping it would help. I had double vision couldn’t read anything and nausea. Hate the nausea. Around noon the headache was bearable. I tried to eat something but just couldn’t. Lalo who said he would come ahorita showed up at 2pm. Before that around 1 my headache was bearable and I was getting hungry. I actually ate chicken I cooked. Every joint up in neck and shoulders hurt and I had tinnitus very high pitched sounds in my ears. At 4.20 I went to bed and fell asleep. Didn’t wake up until 6pm when Lupe walked in my room with my Mac!

Emotionally: Not many emotions when the body is in the above condition. My feelings for Veronica’s management style got reinforced yet again. She is too lazy to read (or lack of time if you ask her), but a top manager shouldn’t ignore important information or ignore project management tools….its so dounterproductive and damaging to the company! Emotionally also a bit tough when Ricardo says he wants to come over and talk face to face… about his future in Canada….. he knows how I felt about his reasons for not seeing me (that he has no money and is poor and not intelligent enough…all BS reasons imo) I’m not sure I am ready for it. Yes, I love T… but all of this together makes me feel romantically hopeless. BUT YES !! I am stoked to have my mac back!!!

Wake up: Got up at 9.30 but wake up was bit difficult to determine considering my physical condition… have no idea if I will be able to sleep tonight.. still have a lingering headache and my shoulders hurt a lot. 

Went to bed:  

Today’s agenda: Send wayfair research docs to Vero √ Compare image sheets between faves and actual downloads from Henrik. √ Contact Henrik about the discrepancies. √ Was supposed to do a lot more but actually happy I managed the above.

Alos pissed at the fact that i didnt get my money nor water until 6.30 pm . by then the green grocer , the polleria and the carniceria were all closed. Also asked Navedy for three things… how difficult can it be. Gel pens, a ruled note book and an envelop. I received a quad notebook. Kids gelpens in pink, orange, lt blue and purple. she did get the envelope right… a big manila envelop … oh well it’ll work. I want to send gifts to Tetsuya. Read some in the business plan but total ignorant, uneducated crap. Talked with Roger and he is obvously more pro than I originally thought. Chatted with Ricardo who still talks about we belong to different worlds and he wants tomove to Canada and wants my help. wtf. On a good note I’m still happy about T’s messages . Just wish he was more active inhelping me go back to Japan! Also Mischa has done it again… he told me ofc B would drive and come pick me up … she was totally clueless and he hadnt talked with her about it. She is way too nervous to drive in CDMX   Wake up:… woke up later than usual. Thin k i just didnt give af. 10.30 am. Got a message from Lalo 10.34 when i was still in bed.

My office was freezing cold and my hands were ice cold. Physically: Woke up around 7 or so with a crushing sound from my mouth. Felt like I had crushed glass or sand in my mouth. It was one of my fake teeth in the bridge who broke probably due to me biting so hard while sleeping. I was able to go back to sleep. On the good note no head ahced at night or in the morning. Emotionally: After my entry yesterday I received a message from Tetsuya. The good feeling still lingered in the morning. For some reasons some of his messages just make totally warm and gives me huge smiles. The rest of the day I was pretty focused on work. Was a bit … or more than a bit frustrated with the waiting at home for the driver to come and pick me up. He was going to take the Mac to the repair guy in the city… originally said to be in the morning so I had my alarm set on 9 so could I could contact Lalo around 9:30. He replied with that they needed to plan the day before knowing what time the driver would swing by me to pick up the laptop. Around 10 am he wrote driver would show up at 11. At eleven he said it’ll be another half hour… and so on…. until driver comes at 1:30 and takes me with him to the factory with a statement, I am going to have lunch now… wtf…. He wont leave to the city until around 3 then? Whatever kind of notion… not my fault that everything gets delayed. During my meeting with Lalo in the afternoon and later in the meeting notes (cced to Veronica) I made sure to point out “Can’t be done until Anna has Mac” on the activities/ tasks that so requires. But overall the day I was pretty work focused and neither up nor down Wake up: 9:00 Went to bed:  Today’s agenda: Fill in sheets with all photos and print them out Print out BP draft 2.0 ✔ Read BP    – Well I had intended to be at work at 10.30 -11 to print out BP but since I got there so late I lost 2,5 hours of at the office time… so I will have to read this tomorrow.

Feel inspired to start my business, and goald talk with Mischa went well I’m so done with Mexico. Had a good talk with pappa about how I feel and that I might need a place to stay in April. Good talks with him this past 3 months or so. Wake up:  10:00 ish Went to bed: 02:00 am Today’s agenda I had hoped I would have the shitty PC bak before noon.

The ending was equally mediocre. Quite good acting by Owen Wilson and Kathryn Hahn .. who pretty much was the only take home good points for this one. Even Nicholson was under his standard imo. And Witherspoon was overacting making it less credible.. the plot was bad enough than to add her overactring it. She glimmered a few times which seemed genuine an d believable but for the most part it wasn’t credible. Total walk distance: 0 stayed home all day Food: Breakfast three arepas , two with philadelphia cheese singles one with 1/3 avocado Lunch: Pechuga rellena with rice from Lupe Dinner : banana Drink: 2 cups of coffee and the rest of the day tons of green tea Zen   Daily expenses: 0  ———— 08-09-2018 Friday Weather: Hot and steamy. 104F real feel 107F/40 C real feel 41.7 Physically: hot….melting away Emotionally: Tad stressful is probably an understatement. Living with a woman who is used to live by herself and who has very fixed ideas about how things should be is tough enough, then add my dire situation and the fact that even in this heat she turns off the AC or keeps it at 80F. And a typical Valary thing: She saw me suffering in the heat inside sitting in the kitchen area and realized that she has a portable big swamp cooler in the balcony storage. I was so relieved finally good breathe and function. Then a few hours later her god daughter emails and needs financial help. Valary arranes with that but at the same time startig to panic over her money so suddely all AC is off again. ALL even the central AC. It is about 85 degrees in the apartment. Im boiling mentally lol On another note today I felt productive and accomplished, even energized. I didnt sleep almost anything last night due to the high temperature in the room and maybe a bit of all the last weeks trauma started to sink in. I had a job interview wit Kelly temp angency regarding a job at Apple. I talked to Valerys friend Amy a former headhunter who gave me valuable advice and I created and ordered a business card for future etworking events. I also organized trello and have tons of tasks and ideas about what i want to do in the near future. Inspired and energized sums up the day.

BOE people Tom and Azim hadn’t even replied to my email yesteerday so I had no idea where to go today…. I went to the city ward office only to realize there still was no reply to my email. Around 8:45 am I went upstairs to BOE and got hold of Kurose the director of the ALts who told me I was supposed to be at my JHS today. Would have been nice to receive that in writing and confirmed, especially since I had been away out and sick for two days.

When I left home at 18:00 o’lock it was a tad chilly but not bad. No need for winter jacket. +14C I think it was around 18 during the day. Physically: Ear pain ongoing. It can be dealt with the Bufferin, but even with the bufferin I can still feel it. Also headaches and stiff neck.  My right foot is also bothering me with radiating pain from the top of the foot. I suspect its the black shoes that are a bit too tight but it is still abit too much pain just to be from a shoe. really don’t know what’s going on with that. It feels like nerves are damaged somehow. Emotionally: The frustration is a bit under control. Mischa gave me a good advice to deal with Jerry not according to my expectations but to Jerry’s own ability (which is like a child’s). It’s not about forgiving or apologies expected, it’s about me taking responsibility for my feelings and act accordingly… prior to bad things happening. Take note and learn!! Dealing with Terumi is more a matter of understanding her situation and her own frustrations.

Still a lot later than Stockholm (15:35) but sometimes I wonder if Japan is ill-placed in its time zone. Korea is in the same time zone so there the sun sets at 17:25 and rises at 7:06 am today. I mean do we really need to have sunrise at 6:15 am ..personally I much rather have the darkness in the mornings than in the evenings/afternoons. Physically: Back pain. The daily toil of carrying the backpack with computer and all books and papers its taking its toll Also feet are hurting increasingly especially my right foot (fotsulorna.. feels like the are blistered with huge blisters but they arenät= Emotionally: I don’t know.. I am bit frustrated with a lot of things and wonder if I have the patience and lifeskill to endure. Jerry is completely incompetent but willing to put in the hours. Yuichi .. I don’t really know what he is doing, have been doing this past month. I have given him some heads up that he need to step up his game if he is serious about this. And he did by showing up, but he needs to show me in december that he also can do the work. Also more or less getting fed up with T who keeps saying “next week”. I guess Im just feeling a tad bit of frustration with this new life situation as well. Totally meaningless time spent such big chunks of my day. Listening and learning about stuff I already know, taught by incompetent people… Time not well spent… but for a visa… sure but then I must get going with this company shit… Yeah I’m frustrated.

However, I woke up at 1:30 am… luckily I could fall right back to sleep. Still getting up at 6:15 am is difficult and I need more than 6 hours of sleep… plus it accumulates over the week… Emotionally: Little bit anxious due to visit to Immigration. Not the visit itself but the fact tat I screwed up the forms and wrote so sloppily. Wake up: 6:15 am Went to bed: 23:00 think I fell asleep around 23:45/midnight..

I had my thinner ‘kofta’ on and even if it was chilly I knew it was going to be a lot warmer later on in the day. Daytime temp around +22 then down again in the evening +17 at 19:30 Physically: Was fine until I had to stand for over an hour to watch a class demo at a seminar in Abeguchi ES. Emotionally: Happy and dreaming about Tetsuya a lot about men in my head now. I do have feelings for Tanaka who seems to be such a warm person. Wake up: Alarm set at 6:15 but wasn’t truly up until 6:30. Left home at 7:15 am which was a tad too early so I stopped at Hug 3 on my way to the train. Went to bed: Aimed for 23:00 managed to be in bed by midnight ..probably fell asleep around 00:30 Today’s agenda: BOE work… they never say what the plans are but today we went to a seminar about the new education plan Shizuoka has for English teaching. I was sooo tired when I got back hom at 18:00 but decided to fight it. I drank a cup of coffee with my dinner, and after a quick chat with Bill Jokela I went down to Hug to at least try to finish the weekly work report. I want to return home no later than 21:30 and then be in bed by 23:00 Total walk distance: 5.4km Food: Skipped breakfast… won’t ever do that again!! Not a good idea. Especially today when we didn’t have time for lunch. Only stopped at a konbini and I bought an onigiri. By the time I got back to Shizuoka I was starving. I made chicken, rice and cornsoup stew in the frying pan with tons of garlic and lemon. But already on my way home from the train I had to stop at 7-11 and munched on croissants because I was really “starving” , dizzy and stomach almost aching.

Really freezing. Physically: Fine. Some minor pain in back. Eczema on a few fingers on my right hand is becoming increasingly bothersome, I don’t have a lot of hydro-cortizone left so right now this moment I will head over to amazon and order some… since I actually remembered LOL I also have a cold sore on my upper lip, nothing visible but annoying none the less. Emotionally: I think something is still bubbling under the surface. When I sat at Hug tonight I felt like I almost was about to cry. Yet I don’t feel sad. I had a great week end! The dinner with Tanaka-san last night was amazing. The food was truly divine. I loved the tripe, which I really didn’t think I would. This chef at Trattoria Sai can really cook food! And the company was lovely. Yoshiharu Tanaka is a warm person. I can feel he has gone through some relationship issues in the past, so it’s all about treading lightly with him. My emotions when it comes to love and romance and sex, since to be all over the place… Well time will tell what will happen. I feel I need a warm person, in that touchy giving way, in my life. Yuichi is wonderful and I love him for many reasons, but he is not touching or giving enough closeness for me (except for when he is drunk and sleeps with me). Ichizen, doesn’t seem to understand me well enough so communication is tricky. Tetsuya is someone I really want to have a functioning relationship with. I’m in love with him, but now I I haven’t seen him for over 2 months… that’s not the kind of relationship I need right now either…. sigh. Wake up: 10:00 am Woke up already at 8 but decided to sleep a little more. Probably rather stupid since I have to be in bed early tonight. Went to bed: Aimed for 23:00… then 23:30… well fell asleep at 00:30 then at 3:00 am Tetsuya messaged me, so I messaged with him for a bit. Fell back asleep only to wake up again at 5:00 because Jerry messaged me. That made me a bit mad actually. But I will learn and turn off notifications for him. Today’s agenda: Attend event at Hug Hop and meet up with Teerumi there. Try to catch up on FB.. gratulations especially. Download the rest of the CSI episode that was only partially downloaded.

Only +12C. +23 daytime. Physically: OK but getting drained by the new sleeping rhythm, which is clearly showing in my mental state. Emotionally: First the total surprise in the early morning hour on my way to work… email from pappa. I guess it’s a good thing. I don’t know yet. BUT at least he stopped acting like a grumpy kid. The BOE time is currently truly a waste of my time, but I sat in that room… they insisting on woking effectively, me observing a very flawed system. Ineffective and stressful for all of them. Lacking skills to run a smooth operation. Then from there to the emotionally stressful situation at the Aoi ku office. And from there to being drained at home and totally miscommunicating with Jerry which made through a mental fit. I am so angry right now. He really is immature and I should not consider him being at par with my own daughters the same age.

Still some in the hips and lower back. But from around 18:00 increasing pain in the heart-chest area. Might be due to lack of sleep. I only slept a couple of hours before Emotionally: A bit troubled by Yuichi’s behavior, but I think he has his reasons, and they probably aren’t what I think they are at all. WOrk has started and at least the training is a breeze thus far. Extremely frustrating with the ineffiecient ways of theirs though Lot’s of dead time when I’m just left alone to do… yeah what exactly… just wait it out.

I have sent the documents I needed to send to Nakano-ku and I can only hope that they will send me the papers I need to continue with the visa process.  SO far so good, and it starts to feel real now when I have been sleeping at nights, and today when Azim wrote an email to me asking me questions in preparation for me starting working there. Feel a bit emotionally drained somehow. It wasn’t much yesterday in actual actions… but from thinking I must go to Tokyo, to not go to Tokyo, to booking a doctors appointment, arranging with money for that Dr appointment, then all came around 180 degrees at Immigration office and later with Sayuri’s sister informing I could send the papers in. Oh well, maybe it’s not so strange, and I don’t feel low or sad, on the contrary, but I do feel empty not in a negative way, more like inertia. BUT I did clean at home a lot and cut cardboard boxes as well. And yeah 2 days almost without electricity… think it got to me all this little things that I had to do. I really wanted to stay home at night but felt I had to reply to Azim and needed to check some info before replying to him, hence I went to Hug anyway.

I have totally mixed up the bills, and thought it was the gas bill that was acutely due No warning, no more messages from them. The last bill was sent weeks ago and was obviously due yesterday. Well no excuses my bad for not being more careful when reading the kanji on the bills. If I had, I would have known that it was electricity, not gas, that was due. Now since I paid the gas bill yesterday and not the electricity, I dont have enough money to pay for the electricity.

Cooler than previous days, or less hot at least. Physically:. Had pain in my back and toothache while sleeping. Emotionally: Content. Feeling that the dream really meant something to me. To kill my darlings and move on. Also happy after meeting Jerry at Hug Coffee. Great person. Sad about T’s lack of communication but it would have been worse if this had happened a few weeks ago. oh and Tetsuya messaged me in the afternoon. All is well, and I actually feel content I don’t need him to fill my social needs now, I have many new friends. I love him the way it is. kendra messaged Jerry messaged and set up meeting again for Tuesday. Tomorrow I’m meeting Tsukasa. Life is good. Friends and social interactions are important to feel good about life. Wake up: Had alarm set at 11:45 am  finally went up for real at 12:10. After I fell asleep around 4:30 am I woke up frequently. 5:50 am, 8 am, 9 am and 11 am. I also had vivid dreams. One in particular about birds. First a small kolibri flew in through a window. I really don’t like flying birds indoors. They panic. Someone was with me in the room, I believe it was my sister. I lay down on a futon mattress covering myself up with a sheet trying to avoid the bird who wanted to peck on me. My sister then said. Just let it peck on your head and hair then you can smash it with your head, because it is soo tiny. I became sooo upset… that would mean she suggested I’d kill the bird!!! After a while luckily the bord flew back out by itself, haunted in the direction by my sister. However, after it left the room. An even bigger bird came in with a horrendously scary big beak. Must have been some kind of raven, but it looked more like some kind of bigger prey kind of bird. I will google later to see if I can find which breed it was because I do recall how it looked like. I wasn’t scared, just upset. It sat calmly with its big beak just stoically somehow. But still it shouldn’t be inside. I sat by the kitchen table. The apartment was one I can’t recall ever seen in real life. Everything was white, whitish or light blues. Windows were big and the room (were I had layed down had a french balcony.) A bit Nantucket, Mass style, like Now I googled it… and just looking at images and clicking, I clicked on a Golden Eagle over and over again, so obviously it was a Golden Eagle. The eagle was no threat, it was more like a pal sitting there, but I still felt, it shouldn’t be inside. I helped it, guided it out through the french balcony doors. but not by chasing it, more like helping, guiding. Once I opened the window there was a horrible, poor sight outside. A huge albatross had a fishing  net a giant hawser stuck in its claws and couldn’t be free. I climbed out on neighboring roofs and helped the poor bird, who was so gentle and sweet and kind. I didn’t mind the bird at all, on the contrary I felt a connection with it. Being stuck and all not being able to fly freely while dragging that hawser and net. Stupid mankind, harming big birds like this one. I especially remember how the birds claws were so sharp and enormous, but the bird helped so I wouldn’t get hurt while I was helping it become free! Bird To see birds in your dream symbolize your goals, aspirations and hopes. To dream of chirping and/or flying birds, represent joy, harmony, ecstasy, balance, and love. It denotes a sunny outlook in life. You are experiencing spiritual freedom and psychological liberation. It is almost as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. To dream of dead or dying birds indicates disappointments. You will find yourself worrying over problems that are nagging on your mind. To dream of birds on the attack means that you are being pulled into too many directions. You are experiencing conflict with your spirituality. If the birds are trying to break into houses, then it implies that you are not following your desired path in life. Others are meddling in your life and interfering with your life path. To see bird eggs in your dream symbolize money. To see birds hatching in your dream symbolize delayed success. To see a bird nest in your dream symbolizes independence, refuge and security. You need something to fall back on. Alternatively, it may signify a prosperous endeavor, new opportunities, and fortune. Dreaming that a bird’s beak is stuck in your neck means that you have been gossiping too much. To see a bird singing near a fire refers to someone who is consumed by their passion.

Physically: Woke up from earthquake at 9:38 am and felt rested and well but again did the mistake of thinking I need some more sleep, several nights in a row now, I have been sleeping poorly between bedtime and 8-10 am, waking up frequently, and decided to go back to sleep ..’for an hour’, only to sleep well and heavy and wake up “too” late. Both yesterday and today I feel sluggish when I finally wake up. My body feels stiff second day in a row, and minor pains and aches all over. Nothing bad though. Slight headaches coming and going, but nothing worth taking an analgesic for. Emotionally: Energized emotionally last night after all the ideas with the site but Other than that: Frustrated. Frustrated on several levels. T hasn’t messaged me since Friday. I know he is very very busy but a sticker would have been nice. I really think that Japanese people in general, but J men in particular are reactive. They only want to react not instigate, start or lead. I’m also frustrated with my sister and father. Dad because once again it seems not to be care for me that he wants me to be in touch but for his own reasons so I do what he wants, and how he wants it done in order to maintain full control. Sister well because she is broken and refuse to heal…. I’m obviously not stable A photo Reds posted threw me off. Elle/Jamie copyrigt of JIU in Stockholm on his instagram No mentioning of IsshniTogether.. They are all harvesting Also Julia told me via LINE around 23 o clock that Pappa had sent her photos from the funeral. Nothing sent to me… I’m sick and tired of this world… and its people.

Walked a lot without major pains. In the morning when I walked home I had to sit down a lot though. Some minor tooth aches. But stomach is not well … this flare-up is still active. Emotionally: It’s complex. I was somehow still low and angry on one dimension due to Eva and the weird communication issues. I feel unable to use the tools I’m used to with others when it comes to her, and sometimes others in family. I am definitely getting better at it, but it is not well, and it should not affect me as much as it does. On the other dimension, I met some amazing people at the Chatty event! So I fell confident social life here in Shizuoka is on a lot better track now. Part of my issues emotionally is also my sleeping pattern. It seems like if I go to bed as late as 5:30 am life is still ok, but…. going to sleep at 7 or 8 in the morning so I wake up after 13… is not good for me.

Today is Tetsuya-day Everything was OK as long as he was here. He wasn’t supersmiling as he usually does, but I think he is a tad drained/exhausted. After though, I sent a sticker as I always do, but he read and no reply. So after another hour I sent a message thanking him for coming. He read that too after a while but no reply. Usually after we meet he always sends me happy stickers. Oh well, I hope it’s just due to the fact that he is busy. there is this tiny little voice in my head though… wondering… should try to focus on my stuff, but after he left it was very hard to focus on anything. I couldn’t focus on Japanese lesson, nor reading, so I took a walk to the PO but it didn’t really help. Who am I to tell M that feelings should be turned away when they hinder your daily chores?! So anyway after he messaged me and sent me these, I felt a whole bunch better. Feelings too often depend on others’ actions, or non-actions.

Very content. Job is on it’s way in w Asa. Tetsuya messaged. Meeting him Thursday. Work is coming along. Then at night a big conflict with Eva on the phone. She can’t recall what has been said during phone conversations. She also can’t, or won’t help or find out anything regarding Mamma’s bouppteckning but kept saying she doesn’t want to be sitting as a mellanhand between me and Pappa. Seriously questioning her current mental state. She misunderstands, doesn’t pay attention and cannot remember what has been said when. She sounds a bit like a play-back machine, end refusing to take any kind of action towards anything at all. I ended a phone call with: Stick o brinn! and hung up. Not very mature. But I called Pappa and he really didn’t ask me sensitive questions. The whole bouppteckning took a big chunk of the night, with emails, messages and phone calls between 02am and 05 am.

When I finally fell asleep around 7 am, I woke up frequently due to nightmares/strong vivid dreams, Particularly one of them, the topic in it was Kenji and RFR, and a very sly Reds. In the nightmare/dream was Noshin and Shadi who were the ‘bad’ guys (Kenji and Reds were not in the dream/nightmare, as in  actually visible in the dream, but the cause for Nosin and Shadi to have some weird witch hunt). And old friends from way back when, were supposedly the ‘good guys’ who seemed to help me, but I wasn’t  really 100% sure. I did not trust them 100%! I recall Susie, Ingrid ‘Giggi’ Björck , Ammi and Kristina Persson. I had doubts about them, and clearly had issues trusting anyone even if they said they “had my back”. Interesting that it was people from church that represented the ‘good’ guys, and that they still weren’t 100% good. I caught them a few times in my dream. they apologized but mostly just didn’t get it. They didn’t understand so it was that kind of stupidity more than being ‘bad’, or not trustworthy. I even reflected upon that in the dream and asked them: “Why you? Why are you the ones helping me, you haven’t been part in my life for soooo long.” and then I thought for myself: Even if you say I can trust you, obviously I cannot! You are just too dumb. However, since I am smarter than all of them that were in the dream except for one person: a complete stranger, a cab driver, the trust issue never became a real problem. They couldn’t figure it all out anyway. So the really cool and very vivid part in the dream was a cab ride when I was feeling relieved .. it was really over!! OMG what a feeling of relief!! The hunt around the IKEA maze,  and in a very BIG house with a zillion of rooms, (think I have been in this house before in my dreams It has two sets of staircases and my ‘secret’  rooms and even floors.) and finally felt safe and secure! When suddenly…  crap … heart froze… because, driving right next to our cab, parallel,  was another cab, and my antagonists  were in it!! However,  the real savior was the cab driver! He looked like he came from Turkey, or even Iran or Kurdistan, and he said: “Don’t worry ma’m, I got this!!” , and he did some really smart, very intelligent maneuvers (He was like intelligence personified,  much like the man in the light house in my favorite film “Diva”) and we drove up a very very narrow alley way,  similar to Old Town in Stockholm, but it looked like we were somewhere in Toscana though . definitely not in Stockholm LOL it was a long dream and situated at many different places, like in the big house, in the IKEA maze  (including the IKEA restaurant), and in some kind of semi-open building,  like a building with many overhangs outside. It looked a bit like huge ski resort place  with huge,  quite empty rooms and lots of wood. Actually a bit like the hotel in “Twin Peaks”. And yes the taxi riding in the end. Intelligence, the cab driver, won over all the stupidity! My interpretation of the dream, bordering nightmare, is that as so often in my nightmares, I am still able to handle the situation, and I actually woke up with a: “HA! See there! ” So I felt good! Also kind of cool that the cab driver, who I knew already IN the dream that he wasn’t really a person, he was intelligence and he could really think outside the box, was the way to really feel relief and it wasn’t over, until he had done what he did. However, 2 hours of sleep was too little so I went back to sleep, but when I woke up around 12:30 I decided it was a good time to get up anyway, even though I only got a total of 5,5 hours of sleep. Wake up:12:30PM Couldn’t fall asleep at all last night, so after about an hour in bed I gave up and went up for another hour or so. 5,5 hours Went to bed:  Today’s agenda: Cut card boards √ Garbage after midnight √ Go through all drive docs √ Watermark art and upload √ Goald phone meeting at 11PM √ Wok on hibiscus blob √ Try to do at least 1-2 pages on PSW tumblr edit – 1 page done √ Upload something to insta after midnight √ Hourly: 12:30-12:55 waking up, making coffee, read some messages, got dressed 13:00-13:15 dishes, kitchen, cleaning desk 13:15-13:30 Breakfast 13:30-14:30 just taking it Sunday easy.
