All in all, I've had a good week so far. The weather has been nice, we finally got internet at home and I ate a considerable amount of chocolate. Good times.
However, there were some niggly moments, as with every week, but I've decided to rise above them. My strategy for rising above it? By making a list.
1) I will not get irritated by people who talk to me like a simpleton. I'm not, by the way. I just seem to be surrounded by people unwilling to give me a straight answer to reasonable questions. Seroiously, giving a sarcastic answer just makes me want to ask you pointless questions. I don't, because I'm the grown up in the room, but I could if wanted to.
2) I will not get annoyed when a group of salarymen share beer on the train all around me but don't offer me any. I don't know them and should probably not take drinks from strangers. It just seems kind of sad to find myself sitting in the middle of a party I wasn't invited to. And feeling left out makes me feel irritated with the bin truck's music wakes me up. It sounds like an ice cream van but it is the bin men. So the irritation is two-fold: being woken up and then realising that there is no ice cream available.
3) I will not be aggravated by complicated TV dramas that frankly make no sense. Season 2 of Gossip Girl? Downright confusing. The Japanese equivalent? Well, needless to say, I have no idea what is going on.
4) People who cycle reeeeaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyy slowly when I'm trying to get to work. It's a narrow road, so it's difficult to pass them, but seriously, I can't go that slowly and keep my balance.
Crikey, even making the list is making me a bit annoyed... Maybe I'll give it a rest and come up with something less irritating for next time's post.
