Diary 13 – Learning Tamil.

Hey all.

~crickets chirp throughout the empty room~

I have decided to probably not get braces. First – because lol $5000 (almost 3.5 lakh if you’re tuning in from India). Second – because they’re estimating 1.5 to 2 years which is a pretty long time. I know that they say not to avoid doing something due to time because that time will pass anyways. But honestly.. I don’t want to look like a teenager for that long

I’ve started cultivating my record collection. And I got a pretty great record player on Amazon for only $40. So far I’ve got the Beatles White Album and Revolver. Then Etta James because obviously she’s incredible. And Radiohead’s In Rainbows because it was the album that changed my taste in music and I saw it performed twice in the summer of 2008. Some great memories.

I FINALLY chose a bookshelf/tv stand and got the notification of delivery this afternoon so I’ll have a fun adventure of assembling that.

I decided to start learning Tamil. Totally random and I should probably just work on my Hindi to regain fluency, but it sounded like a fun challenge and I really want to go back after everything that happened there. I hate leaving places on a bad note so I want to give Tamil Nadu a shot at redemption. Also.. daughter, in Tamil, is muggle/magal which is amazing.

I’ve been working out a lot lately. And I found a therapist. And I’ve been trying to eat less processed foods. All of these things I’ve read help to reduce anxiety etc, so hopefully something works. And hopefully I can convince the therapist to write me a letter stating that I need an emotional support animal because that will override my landlord’s ‘no pets’ rule. Really hoping for that.

Everything else is pretty much the same. I use this as my diary so I want to be totally open, but then I remember that the occasional person stumbles upon it so I do keep some bits to myself. These are the main ones though.

Have a good weekend! See you next week 🙂
