Everyone who is reading this and is expecting some kind of porn, I have to disappoint you ;)! But anyways after running and driving around the university and Saijo to do all the paperwork I was finally able to settle into my new apartment.my room.
So here I was in my home for the next 3 month.sweater in the hostel! After putting my cloth which I brought with me (mostly T-Shirts and everything else you need in winter ;)) into the wardrobe I realized that I had not eaten all day. So now I was hungry AND cold … great. Intelligent as I was this day I had declined the previous request if I wanted to go shopping, because I thought I had everything with me. Everything apart from something to eat or drink. sporks. Very pleased with myself that I had found the chopsticks in a time of need I triumphantly returned to my cold room to at least eat some warm noodles. After that I simply went into my cold bed and even turned off the AC to save energy (which I do not have to pay for). Normally I’m not such a wuss when it comes to cold temperatures, like many of you probably know, but it was just freezing, even the floor. When I woke up the next morning I was stiff and I’m not talking about my penis, but rather my whole body. I turned on the AC to heat up and thought about taking a hot bath. I turned on the water heating panel and tried to get warm water. Nothing. Ok maybe that would take some time, I opened the tap for warm water and went back to my laptop to somehow kill some time. After 15 minutes there still was nothing and I somehow started to doubt if I had set the panel correctly. Everything was written in japanese, but the manual said there was only one button for on/off, two arrows to adjust the water to the desired temperature and one button for restrictions, if you push it a lamp with “0 L” turns on, I still haven’t figured out what it means. I closed the tap again and waited some more. After 25 minutes nothing…… This game continued quite a while, when I got the first drops of cold (!!) water 3,5 hours had already passed. After another half hour the water actually started to get warm and I started to fill the bathtub to take a “hot” bath. After the bath the room was still cold, but not as cold as before, things were starting to get inhabitable. I would have returned to the hostel to get the rest of my stuff, but we actually had a new years party on that day on 6 p.m. so I stayed and went the next day.
Another thing which was really strange and a little creepy was the lack of any signs of life around. I was the only person living the the whole building and even in the student dormitories around you couldn’t see a single soul. The whole weekend I did not see a single person in this area. It kind of was like in a zombie apocalypse movie. So I hope you got a good impression on how I spend my first days at my new home and what things I had to fight. By the way now everything is working fine, it is still cold outside (we have snow at the moment) but the room isn’t that cold anymore, thanks to the constant use of the air condition. So until next time … またね !
