Late January 2021 wrap up and current life update

I’ve been spending most of my time at home when I’m not out working or doing groceries. Japan faced severe winter this year that electricity consumption across the nation shot up and that resulted in higher electricity bills than usual. I usually get charged $100 during winter season because I use the heater a lot, but this time it shot up to almost $150 which really surprised me. I’ve been taking longer showers and cooking more frequently at home so my gas bill rose as well. I wish spring would come soon so I don’t need to spend this much money on utility bills.

Work has been OK. I think my mind is slowly starting to give zero fucks towards that one annoying lady. Nowadays I can just easily ignore her actions and pretend like nothing happened. I told my supervisor that I’m quitting at the end of this month since my new work visa is ready and I will retrieve it on the beginning of March. I could actually push the retrieval date and work until the middle of March but I figured I wouldn’t want that since I’d be busy with moving out procedures and stuff. I still need to talk to the store manager directly to tell him I’m quitting earlier than expected, but I never see him in the store…

Lately, I’ve been immersing myself in otome games on Switch. I completed Collar x Malice (original and the Unlimited version) and am currently playing Bustafellows. For some reason, I’m just attracted to crime/mystery stories that I keep searching for more once I finish a series. It’s really entertaining but at the same time robs me of my sleeping time and money. I wish these games are a bit more affordable.

Other than that, I’m just watching some animes during the weekend. This season has some interesting titles. Kumo desu ga, nani ka?, Kemono Jihen, and Kai byoui Ramune are some of the titles that I’m currently following.

There’s only a month left before I leave this small town. I wish I could stay here longer since I’m not that fond of big cities. Another reason is because I don’t want to spend all that money to fund the moving out service and airplane ticket. I’m a bit upset that the company doesn’t cover any of the expenses when they require us to move. I could’ve used these to fund my new otome games…. or Genshin gachas. Oh well.

  1. It sounds like everything is getting a little stressful with the bakery and the move coming up. Where will you be moving to? Were you able to already find a place to live? I’m worried about moving myself, eventually. We’ll be getting a house in a year or two, which I’m excited about but also a little terrified. No one to call and fix things around the house for free. But it’ll be nice to be able to not live on the third floor and not have neighbors right up on us. I never heard of the games or the animes. I haven’t really watched anything since Alice in Borderlands and Sweet Home. I wanted to watch the other show, but I never got around to it. Anyways, I’m glad to hear from you. I was worried, and thought you were exposed to covid.

    1. Sorry to make you worry! I will be moving to Tokyo (yeah, I know, it’s the worst place to go to right now). The company’s searching a place in my stead so I don’t have to go through the trouble of finding one on my own.

      Getting a house is really nice. Though apartment life is sometimes more convenient, I still prefer living in a house so I can have a bigger space and don’t have to deal with other people lol. I hope you’ll be able to find (or build?) your dream house soon!

      1. Oh I actually forgot that I read that the company you’re working for is arranging a place for you live. I think they should pay for the move then, since you don’t really have a say in where you would like to live. Would it be too far to live in the outskirts of Tokyo? Would you be able to request that from the company? Or no? I find out more about a house tomorrow morning. I’m a little nervous about it because I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m afraid they’ll laugh and be like, “You don’t have money for a house”. Sigh.

        1. I don’t think I can request the company for specific location, sadly. I was hoping that they’d decide to cover at least half of our expenses, but I guess that ain’t happening. Sigh.
