Today was full of rain and boredom. I woke up around 6 and felt like walking outside to celebrate the ‘complete’ night. I mostly went around the neighbourhood, passing by the convenience store to buy some ice (can’t figure out how to refill the ice cube maker of the fridge) and quickly went back inside with wet feet.
Then it felt a bit like a long agony. It was just pure and sad rain, with this hint of heat that really doesn’t make you want to go outside.
So I quarantined myself, cooking food I couldn’t eat much of and started gathering some stress. I looked at the places I wanted to travel to and got kind of hit with the fact that getting out of Nagasaki to go anywhere was costing an arm and a leg. Just to go up to Fukuoka and getting back is minimum 40€ with the cheapest option. And it’s not getting you very far… Car renting isn’t given either and if I ever wanted to fly from Nagasaki Airport, I should be ready to add a good 300€ to the plane ticket, just because. A kind of anguish grew inside of me, and I’m longing the day I’ll get my hands on a bike, just to save some costs at least for travelling inside the prefecture.
There is one thing I can look forward though is the fact that concerning places in Japan, I seem so far to have the luck to have friends and host families coming to visit me in Nagasaki. Nothing set in stone yet since I am stuck with this no-schedule situation for at least a good week and a half, but the idea of having people coming to see me is warming my little stressed heart!
Oh and yeah, enjoy my silly tries as an attempt to occupy myself during this little un-busy day.
Tomorrow, finally some stuff will be happening. Or so I hope!
P.S: I’m seriously toning down the internal drama I had about being so bored today. It feels like I’m not allowing myself to be bored for 3 years now so when there is no option at all like today, it is harsh to bear it, uuuuugh
