For the last couple of days, I’ve been hunting for a bear, a teddy bear. I found one online that I really like, but the shipping costs more than the bear. I’ve been calling around to shops and visiting others searching for a teddy bear. Continue reading “Whence is the Humble Teddy Bear?”
Another week of summer has passed. I really don’t do well without structure. Continue reading “Not bored and, yet, not productive”
For the last few days, I’ve spent at least four hours each day cleaning my apartment. If I’m being honest, I don’t mind a bit of mess. In fact, a little bit of mess lets me know that I’m accomplishing something else. I get a bit uncomfortable when things are spotless. I can put on a pretty good show when my family visits me, but they know it’s a farce. I think they appreciate the effort. Continue reading “Cleaning is a hard, dirty business”
I broke and bought an air conditioner earlier tonight. I’m not a big fan of air conditioners but it’s become necessary. The heat in Toronto has become unbearable for me. I’m tired of still being dripping wet after towel drying myself off after a cool shower.
I started the summer off with a cold. The last week of school, the cold came on. I thought I’d get over it in a week or so, but it’s been just over two weeks and I’m finally starting to feel better. My nose was dripping as much as my chest and armpits, expect there wasn’t an undershirt to sop it up. I had to blow my nose.
The other issue with the heat has been that it’s keeping me up. I mean, I’m sleeping a more normal six hours, but it’s not enough when you have little to do. Plus, I’ve had to wait until I’m too exhausted to go on before I can fall asleep.
Riel, I feel bad for Riel. He spends the day sleeping. It’s got to be too hot for him, too.
To be fair, I’ve been doing little more than Riel during the day. Mostly, I spend time sitting in my chair, in just my underwear, with my legs spread, complaining about the heat, while watching short clips on YouTube or playing a racing car game on my iPad. After a while, I get tired of this and try to nap. I can’t nap, though, because it’s too hot.
I hope that with some cooler air circulating around my apartment I’ll be able to accomplish a bit more with the rest of my summer.
