I had a job interview at a cool tiny café. I think it went well 😀 They promised to contact me again next week. Keep your fingers crossed for me 🙂

Simply a good day… 17. January 2017

 Sausage sandwich and some cheesy veggie (carrot, potato, zucchini, lettuce) soup with noodles

Not all good days are somehow extraordinary. Some good days are simply good because they are ridiculously ordinary. Like my day today: I slept late in the morning which was fine. When I got up, I cleaned a bit, did the dishes, did some laundry; went out for a walk and popped into my favourite second hand store (got two shirts and a book for 4.50euros) and got groceries; later in the evening accompanied my bf to town while he ran some errands and then we stopped for a bit for some cake and coffee; Got back home, made dinner, played a bit of computer games. The day was pretty ordinary, but since my last thought before falling asleep that night was: “wow, today was such a good day!” then I guess it actually must have been a really good day 🙂 Sometimes ordinary and even a bit boring is the best.

2 random days… 12-13. January 2017

12. January

 Rice cereal with milk and a cup of coffee

 Pukupuku Tai “cookie”. It was delicious 🙂

 Noodles of frustration. I attempted to write that day and couldn’t even open the Word document again, so it all ended up in tears and cooking noodles.

 Vegetable soup (potato, carrot, cauliflower) with leafy greens and nuts/seeds

 Some assorted Tirol chocolates and a cup of tea

Dreams last night involved: My little brother ice skating and wearing a hairclip with pink roses in his hair while doing so.

13. January

 Coffee and a sausage sandwich

 Tom yum flavoured instant noodles with sour cream

 Some garlic pork, boiled potatoes with herb butter and salad with zucchini

 Tea and some Reese’s peanut butter cups that my sis brought me. I shared the  sweets with my bf.

I had a long walk during the day, then I cleaned the entire apartment and cooked dinner. I’d say it was good day.

Dreams… 11. January 2017

 Two sandwiches with chocolate spread and a persimmon

 Tea and two sausage sandwiches

 Vegetable soup (potato, carrot, cauliflower) with leafy greens and seeds

 A sausage sandwich with some leftover salad from yesterday

Dreams last night involved: Lumi’s puppies; My grandparents had built many log cabins on their property for tourists. The cabins were kind of rickety and I was afraid being in them, because they creaked and wavered; I was given a huge painting station as a gift. It had a built-in easel and drawers for painting supplies. My heart was hurting so much, because I had this amazing working place now but I had lost my ability to do any art; And all the time there was a big party happening. People occasionally went to see my dad’s motorcycle club members, who were sitting amongst themselves, to trade their Rock beers for Alexander beers.

Downward spiral… 27-28. September 2016

27. September

 Tom yum flavoured instant noodles with a couple of sausages. I am stuck in the instant noodle trap again; I crave for them constantly.

 An apple.

 A Jäämari chocolate popsicle treat.

 Vegetable soup (potato, carrot, corn, peas, spinach) with sour cream.

 Apple cake and tea. Recipe I used for the cake (in Estonian) can be found here.

I went to check out a job fair, because the unemployment office told me I should. As expected it was mostly very big companies there recruiting and they weren’t really offering anything I’d be interested in. I kind of hoped that there would be some kind of training companies there offering their services, but I couldn’t find any. I figured a barista training or some seminar on customer service would be good, but yeah, nothing like that was there. I’ll probably ask my unemployment agent about where to maybe find something like that the next time I go to meet her.

28. September

 Udon noodles with wakame (had 2 servings).

 What the Fruit? Black currant and Cherry smart snack + coffee.

 Vegetable soup (potato, carrot, corn, peas, spinach) with sour cream + rye bread with butter.

 Tea and Karl Fazer Salty Toffee Crunch in Milk Chocolate.

I had a really bad day. One of these days where everything is bad and goes wrong. I couldn’t write, so I was frustrated. I decided to take a nap to clear my head and ended up missing the one hour window I had to call my doctor to get my blood test results. On top of that the nap was awful, because I had a nightmare and woke up to my own voice screaming for help. I can’t remember what the dream was about, thankfully? Then I somehow managed to take my daily medication twice… also I ate too much and had a headache for most of the day. And in the evening I got the news that my mom had fallen down the stairs and had torn her ankle. Thankfully nothing worse happened to her, but it was still scary news. I ended up having a pretty bad and embarrassing mental breakdown in the evening. Ughhh… I still haven’t quite recovered.
