"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    @mheredge you can easily change your sleeping positions if the bed is too large. :)
  • takafromtokyotakafromtokyo Posts: 1,643 ✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge
    And you don't have to worry about falling off the bed, but you should try to wake up early, for it might take you some time just to find your way out the bed!

    Had 8 hour sleep and still feeling sleepy. What a lazy day. Its rainy, gloomy and no sunlight.
  • takafromtokyotakafromtokyo Posts: 1,643 ✭✭✭✭
    @Julee
    It's always more difficult to get up without sunlight.
    A massive snow storm is approching Tokyo from the north. It has already reached Tohoku region and they say it will hit Tokyo by tomorrow. So tomorrow, I'll have a similar morning like yours.

    Hope the sky will clear up for you soon!

    Weather forecast says three days rain. But at least relief from snow. I can't imagine the situation of the place with snow storm. It must be too difficult to live.
    Stay safe and hope for the best :)

    @Julee @takafromtokyo
    I'm also one of those people who tend to be affected by the weather condition. In a bleak day, even my progress at work gets slowed down. Fortunately we have a nice day today in Tokyo. It energizes me.
  • takafromtokyotakafromtokyo Posts: 1,643 ✭✭✭✭
    @Yellowtail
    Yeah, we have a bright and sunny day today. I guess we should do as much as possible today. I heard on the news that we're expecting lots of snow tomorrow.

    oops, time to go. See you guys!

    I bought this kind of pillow (microbead pillow) yesterday:

    The doctor said it will help my neck relax while sleeping because I was having problems like neck pains these past few days. Let's see what will happen within this week. :)

    Glad to hear from you. :smile:

    I'm wondering whether I might get lost in bed tonight. My bed is two double beds pushed together. I don't think I have ever slept in a bed this big before. I think at least five could probably fit without feeling overcrowded!

    If you don't mind, I would love to join you. :blush:

    @mohit_singh What did I say? I can't remember... :fearful:
    Welcome back by the way.

    I am feeling happy and satisfied as I had a very good conversation with a writer who motivated me to write a book. I've already started writing though! :)

    @Shiny03
    Age day is celebrated by girls only or by both girls and boys?

    By the way it is just a question ! Not a comment on your previous comments. :D
  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,701 ✭✭✭✭
    @mohit_singh Did you mean the coming-of-age day ceremony? Yes, for both.

    Good luck with your exams @mohit_singh. I'm sure you will breeze through.

    Tonight I have a normal size bed. The double-double was wasted on my as I only used one side. There would have been plenty of room for you too @Shiny03 with no risk of getting kicked in the middle of the night!
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,631 mod
    Good luck @mohit_singh. Let us know how you get on.
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,065 mod
    When it's hot, I'm into the starfish position, though I'm afraid I spread out a lot more than in the picture @Shiny03. I think I sleep in all those postures.
  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,701 ✭✭✭✭
    Wow, then it shows you have affluent(?) potential personalities. @mheredge
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,065 mod
    For the first time, I haven't wanted the air conditioning on in my room @Shiny03. Today is a real turn up for the books as it's quite cold. I'm glad to see I have a warm blanket on the bed.
