Cry sometimes it helps to get your emotions out and then empty. It is better than anxiety. Maybe bad advice but still...Wish you to see the bright side of life)

find my card reader which I need to update my address with the bank. Also, haven't been able to find my bluetooth headphones in a good while now. It's bothering me because I use them a lot and I can't think of where they are gone. I'm even a bit

Appointment with psychologist went well. I carved a pumpkin and used the flesh to make a spaghetti pumkin and bacon dish for myself and my housemates. It was fun and nice to spend time with them.

It was really. So far, I prefer this place and these housemates to the last place (smaller room, the landlord controlled the heating remotely) and last housemates. No-one here does shift-work, everyone is respectful. There is an understanding that

everyone mainly keeps their own dishes and food and cleans up after themselves. I much prefer this way. In the last place, other people used to use my dishes but then not clean them properly/there were more shared dishes and I had a press in the
