Today I served as tech support, resident Star Wars geek, and confidant of cute kitten encounters. It made me feel better about things.
I also struggled through a couple of phone calls with the unten menkyo center, and I actually had the option of taking my driver’s license test tomorrow. Because I had to work and would have panicked for the rest of the day, however, I’m opting to take it next week. I have to call them back tomorrow and confirm that I’m in for Monday afternoon. (I hate how, when I’m flustered, I keep saying tabun–the guy kept saying, “No ‘tabun!’ When can you come in?” which made me flail mentally even more.) I’m still panicking silently, though. With any luck, I’ll pass it on the first try. After that, once I’m able to go to the Land Transport Bureau to do the title/insurance transfer, I’ll be good to go! But I have to get the freaking license first…
Oh, and as far as I know, unless one’s skulking somewhere just waiting for the right chance to strike, I’m still mukade-free. So one crawled onto Ashley’s pillow yesterday morning and greeted her when she woke up, and one freaking passed my apartment yet again to enter Chalice’s, and somehow I’m still mukade-free. I know it’s only a matter of time, and I’m trying to not let my guard down, but I’m not as flat-out floored with “ohmygodohmygodohmygod” running through my head as I was yesterday.
I turn 25 in a week. I’m definitely feeling the weight of such a momentous birthday. We’re having dinner at the Sri Lankan place we went to last year, and at least seven people are coming so far, which is awesome, considering it’s a Tuesday night! My beginners eikaiwa class is throwing a party during our 10 AM class Friday (one other student has a birthday this week as well).
I feel like I have a lot going on, and I guess I do…how is it that I’m able to kill so much time so effortlessly, though? I really don’t remember where this afternoon and evening went. That’s kind of a strange feeling.
