Well I finally got carpet for my apartment today. I had a very difficult time choosing a color pattern from the not so extravagant selection within my price range. I did finally choose though and I think it looks ok. It definitely adds a more cozy type feeling to the place. I also picked up a really cheap mat for out front as well. Despite the fact that today was rainy and I had to carry this carpet and rug way too far, I am still happy with the results. In the process I also discovered a few new stores that have a lot of things. One store is basically like a super target, while the other is like a sporting goods store, something like Academy sports. Also I had a really good soft serve ice cream cone today; so despite the crummy weather, I made the best of it :)

Also I weighed myself today for the first time since coming to Japan. I am not as thin as I was a month ago, but I am still much thinner than when I came. So for all those who keep asking, I weighed 209 when I was weighed my first week in Japan, I now weigh 187. So I guess a little over 20lbs has been lost, though I think a good 10-15 more should be done, because not all of that was fat, I have indeed become weaker I know lol.



I really like the looks of the wood floor, I think it looks better personally, but I just want the feel of carpet. Not sure how I really feel about it but oh well, its been done lol.

  1. I agree. The hardwood looks better. But I know hardwood isnt as cozy and gets cold lol. The carpet will be better for me when I visit though. Sleeping on hardwood sucks lol............ no homo.

  2. dang your probably pretty thin then, cause i weigh 170.

    Rug looks good bud, Looks better than the floor. I would have went with a warm maroon red, would have made it really cozy/homey feeling. But I think this looks good

  3. Holy cow Bud! 20 lbs! I can sure tell you have lost alot by the pics too. But i would say you are probably at about the right weight for your structure.
