Accepting the true nature of things

I traveled for a long time without a computer but last winter I just had to buy one. Training for my snowboard instructor certification in Japan, I suddenly found myself out of internet. I did not own a smartphone. Smartphones are a conspiracy to turn us into mindless Looty Dungeon playing zombies. I still believe that, but I have now found a way to outsmart the system by doing useful stuff with my phone.

I went to the local electronics store and bought a laptop there, complete with Japanese keyboard. It was pretty easy to switch over languages once I started working with the laptop. My menu has switched over from Japanese to Dutch. But every once and a while when my laptop goes through its monthly update routine, everything resets into Japanese.

As for now, tired of battling my computer’s true nature, I have decided to accept her as she is. Hence I now offer her green tea, miso soup before dinner and say “arigatou gozaimasu”.
