10:58 am: Living room
Since I spend most of my at-home time holed up in the living room, I thought I should offer a picture of what it looks like. This is a shot of the living room as it looked when I first moved in. I sleep on the couch--which is not too bad to lie down on, if you're as small as I am--though the back of it is so low and hard that it is quite uncomfortable to sit on. My computer is set up on a low table immediately to the left of the door, though it's not visible from this angle.

Japanese rooms are frequently measured not by square meters, but by how many tatami mats can fit on the floor. This room, at 4 1/2 mats, is on the small side. The two bedrooms are slightly bigger, at 6 mats each.

We love seeing the pictures and captions you write in them as well as the narrative. We're glad you are doing fine. Love, Mom and Dad

Yay! Air conditioning!

I like the room very much, and the measurement of the floors by tatami mats is really interesting.

I'm really enjoying reading about you in Japan.

Now you just need an icon.

Thank you for letting me know. I often take a lot of things here for granted, since I've grown accustomed to them, so I have to stop and think, "What would be worth explaining to someone who's never been to Japan?"

...I suppose I could use icons. On an individual basis, I think they're cute and clever. It's just, when I see a jumble of them together by lots of different people, as on my Friends page, it looks really chaotic and distracting. It makes me not want to contribute to the confusion.

What a cool icon and phrase! They're just perfect.
Love, Mom
