Where I Live



First, you can see our front door and "adopted" plant, that was acquired on a late night boredom induced walk. Then there's the entry way, with the shoe-take-off-spot. And you can see my bedroom, illuminated in blue. With my futon on the floor... and that's about it.



My toilet and a short filmed based on it:








The toilet, shower, and sink are in different rooms. The cool thing about the shower and tub room is you bathe in the whole space. And there is some sort of crotch mirror (actually, I guess most Japanese sit while showering, so I guess it is a face mirror).



The whole place is a lot bigger than it looks in these photos. We dont have any stuff and the apartment is actually pretty sparse. And with the insane garbage sorting you have to do here, we always have plastic bags filled with trash somewhere (I think there are five on the balcony right now).



My Flickr page and YouTube page have both been updated, too.

*Busting Myths: 1)I am not [more] depressed [than usual], 2)Im being sarcastic about The Mall, 3)I do not want to leave.

Is that your ironing board that your computer is on? Or it just looks like one?

Nice blog!

Woah, your apartment looks big compaired to the ones I've been to! I loled at "crotch mirror". FYI: that's our future band name.

That place is so rad... so much better than my large shitty south floridian house...

I sleep on the floor too. if it weren't for these weird millipede things that crawl in my house to die it'd be awesome.

just a side note most japanese shower 1st out side the tub area then then fill the tub with super hot water and just soak in the tub, but never ever let a japanese see u take a bath in the tub like u would here. u might want to think about hot baths cause once it gets cold there and im sure it will, not Ma cold but cold. and im sure ur apt doesnt have central heat like here its a nice way to stay warm rite before u go to bed. looks like ur getting the drink part down lol

lol just watched ur movie bout ur toilet. that water is so u can wash ur hands since the sink is in the next rm and the tube and shower are sperate in a diff area.
consider urself lucky. u dont have a japanese toilet
which is in the floor im sure ull run in to one while ur there. hope ur good at the squat.

Why are you so depressed and anxious to leave? This apartment looks tiny!

God, I miss those ironing boards.

No kidding, your place looks almost identical to my first place over there. Very cozy. Hope you're hanging in there!!
