For whatever reason, I was able to sleep pretty early yesterday before 9 PM and I woke up at 6 AM. It’s a very weird experience for me since I usually don’t get to sleep that early because of my insomnia. Waking up early with nothing to do makes me a bit restless, though, so I decided to go for my weekly groceries.
It’s definitely getting colder around here. I had to go out with my jacket on. I should’ve gone with the windbreaker because the wind was so strong, but I was too lazy to climb back up to my room to exchange. I spent around 10 minutes walking to the nearest 24-hour supermarket (bless these places, really). Morning light is definitely nice.
There were literally no other customers except the staffs at 7 in the morning. They were busy restocking and lining up new fresh goods in the vegetable and fruits area. I guess one of the downsides to shopping this early is that you sometimes can’t find the items you want because the staffs haven’t put it on display yet. Luckily, most of the items I was going to get was not in the fresh area so it was fine. There were no lines at the cash register when I went to pay. It just feels good to be able to immediately pay and go.
I dropped by the local bakery near my apartment afterwards. I don’t usually go here since their items are a bit pricier compared to supermarket’s but their bread is so good, especially in the morning since they always make a fresh batch each day. I usually get their pizza bread, but since I bought one from the supermarket, I decided to let my explorative side take lead and went ahead with a mini baguette and their tub of garlic butter.
I had them together with a cup of hot cafe latte for breakfast once I got back to my apartment. I don’t know why I have never bought their butter yet but it’s so good. Baguettes are still too hard for me (to chew) since I’m not used to it, but they taste good anyway. By the time I finished breakfast, it’s only 8 AM and I immediately got restless since I have nothing to do. I decided to spend an hour cleaning my apartment. I vacuumed and mopped the room after dusting my furnitures and electronic appliances. God, I hate dusts.
I remembered that I got a 3-months Kindle Unlimited subscription for 99 yen (1 USD-ish?) after seeing the deal on Prime Day. So I went ahead and downloaded a bunch of magazines and gave it a flip. It’s kinda convenient since I don’t need a place to store the physical object and I can always go back to it easily. The thing with magazines, though, is that I mostly open it for the visuals so I end up finishing it quickly because I don’t read most of the text haha. But it was a good alternative to kill time before lunch.
So now I’m writing this post 3 hours after lunch (I was reading manga and webtoons after). Waking up super early makes the days feel so long. I’m not sure how to spend the rest of the day now. What do you do to entertain yourself? I really need new entertainments!
