Weight-lifting equipment!

I had planned to post more last night but these days I really feel extremely drained by around 23:00 and just sitting down to relax is usually enough to knock me out… I used to be able to stay up so late! ๐Ÿ™

Oh well… I’m going to be going back in time a little, to document the moving process now, so here goes!

The boxes belowย  do double-duty – they not only contain everything I own in this world, but they also serve as my exercise equipment.ย  Large, extremely cumbersome, and absolutely not ergonomic, they have nonetheless been providing me with quite a workout as I fill them up and carry them downstairs all on my lonesome.

no images were found

As you can see, they also multiply!

In case you’re wondering, they’re all different sizes and are covered with quite random text because I picked them up for free from a nearby clothing shop (uniqlo) and drugstore (sundrug).ย  These are boxes that are going to be thrown away so the folks at these shops are happy to give them away to anyone who’s willing to pick them up.ย  Considering that new boxes can cost $1-$2 dollars (100-200 JPY), it’s a good way to save some money ๐Ÿ™‚

    OMG! Poor you! I did’t realize this was at your former place til I saw the staircase…ugh, thought the moving guy was supposed to carry the stuff down! Will you also post a pic of your ’empty’ former room ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had completely forgotten about the tom-tom, chicken roaster, et al. Wow, amazing you still have them!

    Actually the chicken-roaster box doesn’t contain a chicken roaster (wish it did, but then again, not really much space for it…) Instead, it had all the dishes you saw in the previous post ๐Ÿ™‚
    But I do still have that drum! ๐Ÿ˜€

    And of course more pics will be coming over time – just takes time because I have to resize, create galleries, upload…etc. At least for this images I won’t be putting captions I think ๐Ÿ˜›
