super discount travel package

My apartment hunting has come to a climax. Last weekend, I went to see the places of my choice in the countryside where I had never visited before. I had found a budget travel package online that paying only for train tickets made a hotel stay, dinner and breakfast all free. It was a 90-minute bullet train ride and to take the bullet train, I got to the downtown train terminal. I hadn’t been downtown for years and was shocked by its filthiness. Years ago, my English friend once said that she was amazed at how clean it was when she first came to Japan. Now, time has changed that and litter was everywhere on the streets. But once the train left the terminal, I was supposed to enjoy a beautiful countryside view from the train window after a while. Since it was a super discount travel package, the trains and the seats were specified beforehand. The bullet train was a double-decker. My seat was on the first floor from which I could only see people’s feet on the platform from the train window. Although I expected the countryside would come into view after departure, low soundproof walls standing along the railroad track blocked scenery all the way…

worst-case scenario

Apartment hunting that I’ve been doing for a few months now leads me to think a lot about my future. Since the choice has to do with how much I can afford and how long I intend to live there, it’s inevitable to make a long-term plan. For a person like me who doesn’t have a steady income, that’s extremely difficult. As the basics, I started with the worst-case scenario. It reasonably excluded some fancy apartment from my picks, and boosted fear for my future. I realized once again how uncertain my future was. Of course, there is still a possibility the best-case scenario will come into play, but if not? I might end up being a lonely old woman with no place to live. That depressed me so bitterly. After a few days of depression, I decided not to think about the future for a change, and began to live a day at a time. It worked for me. I’ve felt easy and full since then…

gorgeous apartment

I spent the whole day giving much thought to the apartment that I’d
found. There are numerous cons about the place, but moving in a better
place with my low price range seems impossible. I looked for solutions
for the cons – the soon-out-of-order water pipes and the broken boiler,
except for the neighbor who is wanted for murder, as there’s nothing I
can do about it. Thanks to the Internet and my partner’s unconventional
ideas, I reached the solutions at the end of the day. I was so excited
and happy that moving in that gorgeous apartment was getting feasible. I
got up this morning only to find out that the place had been just
taken. I hope you can imagine how disappointed I am…

wanted for murder

As I’ve been constantly looking for an apartment online, I found a
pretty good one again. It’s located by a lake near Mt. Fuji and it’s
spacious, furnished and Western-style. Usually, this kind of property is
far above my price range, but this one is discounted considerably so
that it dove into my range. The catch is that the building is very old
by Japanese standards. It’s 36 years old. Still, it’s the most gorgeous
place I could possibly afford. I gathered information about the area,
such as the climate, restaurants, shops and most importantly, the train
and bus schedules because I don’t have a car. I decided to go to look at
the room and sent an e-mail to the real estate company for an
appointment. Meanwhile, I bought a train schedule book and made a
precise plane to go there as a weekend trip. A reply from the real
estate company included the more detailed information about the
apartment. Because it’s old, the water pipes may give out at any moment.
The boiler is broken, too. To finish up, one of the residents is wanted
for murder. It’s not the one again…or, is it…?

low flow of a shower

My apartment hunting is still going on and I found the best pick so far
online last night. That could be it. It looked so attractive and I got
excited enough to prepare for going there to close a deal first thing in
the morning. There was some time before dawn and I looked up on the
Internet about the property. Plenty of information was there, most of
which were complaints about the superintendent of the building. All
complaints seemed to refer to the same person and I became doubtful
whether I could live in a place that such a bad person managed. While I
read on the complaints, a different one caught my eye. A low flow of a
shower. It was the last blow. By the time the morning dawned, my
excitement was gone…
