Wednesday, December 18
It rained all night and now everywhere looks shiny and reflective, like a live action movie of a Japanese anime comic set in a dystopian future. I sit at the front of the bus, having just got on, and watch it turn left at the lights.
The sky will darken and heavy rain will start up again and continue all day. I will abandon my plan to go to the library to return what I have borrowed.
In the evening I will finish the MA course and several students will tell me how much they enjoyed it, and nobody will admit to hating it.
I will get home to discover that Finnair have refused to let me check in because they claim I need a visa for Dubai.
Me: I love unnecessary complications.
