【春になった2】Entering Spring but already thinking about summer!

I've been working at my new job location for a week now and I absolutely love the energy everyone is bringing to the table. For the first time in years I enjoy going to work and staying late. The way our superiors speak to us is just so...human and you can feel their want for us to succeed. As I was working on a presentation, one of my superiors came in to see what I was up to and I confessed that I was nervous about the presentation I was working on. They pulled up a chair, sat down and helped me role play through my entire presentation, giving me tips along the way, then gave me time to do it again trying to implement the advice they had given me. After work I went to grab a bite to eat with a coworker, and we ended up going to a near-by bookstore together to buy a few work-related books to better our performance.

During my interview, I had been told that I'd need to wait three years for company-covered health and pension, but they've decided to give me health insurance from this year, meaning I only need to wait for pension. Since I work Saturday, I can't go to city hall myself but Ryu will go for me and get everything changed.

White day was on March 14th. Ryu got me some amazingly delicious chocolates from GODIVA, and then two jars of peanut butter. I've been having about a spoon a morning with either an apple or banana with a cup of coffee.

Some time ago I snagged a recipe for a salad from beauty_forashes that required peppers. Scraps were tossed in to an empty pot of soil on the veranda after I'd forgotten to toss them out on burnable trash day, and then were completely forgotten about. I remembered I'd tossed them in to the pot when I went out to grab laundry and noticed some sprouts sticking out. I'll try to keep them alive and see what grows. When I intentionally plant things nothing ever takes. Maybe I need to toss things randomly more often. I'd love to try growing something like mushrooms for winter, but those aren't things you can just toss in to a pot!


We're about to enter April, which means summer only 2.5 months away. Japanese summers are horrible on my hair because my hair is quite damaged, and I usually end up getting a keratin straightening treatment. Due to the pandemic, I haven't been going out much, so I decided to stop using heating products and it helped slightly, but my hair still requires heavy product usage, which means more washing. I've switched to a honey-based shampoo for damage repair and hydration and have been using the yuzu oils given to me by my coworker.

But I've really been looking in to Korean hair washing routines in order to try and tackle hair health at the scalp. I bought an exfoliation brush to use when shampooing my hair and have been looking at different scalp cleaners, but they are so pricey!  I'm currently considering this product...
