I moved into my new room in Tokyo a few days ago, so now it’s picture time 🙂 I live right in the city centre and my room is about 7m². Bathroom, kitchen and other facilities are shared with other people. The rent is about 650 USD, which is pretty expensive in general but about average here in Tokyo. At least for foreigners.

Ladys and gentlemen, I present to you the Japanese way of making coffee. Unlike the Japanese way of making tea, I am afraid to say that it is not half as pretty. At least not for our dear planet earth. Continue reading “The most wasteful way to make coffee I have ever seen”
I am not living in a country where things are cheap and in addition to that my salary is pretty low at the moment, so I started to track my spending habits again. Rent and utilities are not a big issue right now for me (because I am lucky) , so I focus on other things.

In order to keep my blog alive, I seem to need the internet. Without it, the incentive to write is really small and even though I promised to write every day, it is really hard for me, because there are so many other things to do that just have a priority to me over going out to the next starbucks (25 mins by bike by the way) and spending time on the internet.

There are still so many people out there who do not have access to it. I’m not even talking about third world countries, I mean even in my homecountry. People who just refuse to go online and find out what is out there in the world wide web. How do they do that? How do they live their lives?
So, am I addicted to the internet? Can I even live comfortably without the internet? Right now, things change at my place and I will get the internet in my place in a few days, but do I really need it? And why?
Yep, taking this to heart this time, I will actually write something that might be useful to you. Continue reading “This is a blog about minimalism. Therefore I shall write about minimalism.”
