Dear Diary: April Showers

Long winter has gone and spring has come. Hello cherry blossom… and it’s the end of April already?! (Seriously, didn’t I say it every month?)


Well, it was long winter. And we had quite a lot of snow. At first, as usual, I was happy about having snow and making snowman, perfecting its roundness. But then, we had record-breaking snow twice and our area got more than 1 meter and things got into a mess. Schools and shops were closed and so many buildings and carports were broken.

I’ve never seen this much snow, and my tiny shovel seemed just useless in front of the 1m of snow chunk. (So I was stuck in my house for a week. It was good for work though.) I don’t know the best strategy to clear away that much snow, but I’m thinking about buying a proper snow shovel this summer.


My birds (buncho/java sparrow) are growing. Their feathers are changing into adults’ and their personality is forming. 

They both love iPhone and cucumber. Fuyu (white) likes to kiss and Goma (gray) practices singing & dancing – so he’s a boy! I kind of hoped these 2 become couple… but so far they won’t be.. (right after I took this photo, they start fighting) whatever they’ll be, I’m happy with it. :)

Things to do in Spring

It seems like the spring means “big cleaning time” in some countries. For us (I wrote about it before), it’s time for new beginning. (The end of the year is the big cleaning time in here) I failed to start something new last spring, so this year, I decided to tackle both cleaning and beginning..

I’ve been trying to clear some clutter ever since I saw the photo of this interview, thinking this would be super easy to clean, but it’s really tricky when it comes to bookshelf (you know..) But finally I decided to clear (at least) those piles of “I’ll read it later” and “it may be useful someday”. I’m still in the process, but this tells me where my current and all-time interests are. :)

Actually, I’m getting tired of hearing me saying “someday” all the time. Considering the fact that I repeatedly say “Already <insert month name>?!” for years, I’m no longer sure when those “someday” will come. So, if I could turn 5%... or maybe 3% of all those “someday tasks” into “current ToDo”, I’d be very happy. Baby step! :)
