Tomorrow I’ll move to next apartment where it’s neighborhood from current place, but it’s also short-term rental. Over 10 days ago, a letter about the information of visa issue was delivered, but it didn’t come at all. Finally I received it yesterday. It was difficult to rent a long-term apartment without legitimate visa, and to go far away from the place I registered the address because I didn’t know when I could receive letters. I was impatient due to various circumstances, but I’m glad that I was able to find an apartment in the vicinity for a short period of time. I’m lucky:)
I contacted the tax office because a letter about tax number (Steuernummer) didn’t send me at all. Apparently, my submission form was mistake, so I have to resubmit the correct form. Seems that I wrote a form for company management, but correct one is for freelancers:p OMG! It’s difficult to overcome the language barrier.
I made a handmade rubber seal with my name. It took two days to make it from yesterday. I’m tired… This kind of work was so immersive that I was in the same posture all the time, so it hurted my joints. May the opportunity to use this seal come soon.
One of my friends invited the birthday party, so I baked a matcha cake. The cake swelled well and was a success. But if it might be more modest sweetness, it’d be better because I like bitter taste. Hope they’ll be pleased:)
At last Japanese painting craft art, which I’ve started making since coming to Germany, was completed. This is a painting work on a cube that combines the buildings in the area where I live and the motifs in the living area. Furthermore, I added the Chigiri-e which is Japanese traditional art. I aimed at the fusion of German and Japanese culture:) But it’s difficult to take a photo because it has six sides… I uploaded a movie on the SNS.
This month I had a temporary residence permit paper, but finally, a legitimate visa was issued. Hope I could do artist activities earnestly although some procedures are still remaining. To be honest, I have some concerns against German politics, but even if I were in Japan, I’d have had the same feeling. Thus, I chose to live in a place where I feel fun. What I wanna do in Germany, “I wanna make observers happy through my art”, I just do it here:)
I could open my own bank account and get a bank card somehow. Regarding the tax number, last week, I made an application form while using google translation and submitted it via online, but I have no confidence whether I could do it well. If I won’t receive a letter forever, I’ll come to the tax office:p Recently, I tend to neglect learning German because I focus on making a japanese painting craft work. It’s not excuse, but making Japanese painting is required for a lot of energy and time, so I can’t do various things simultaneously during production. Anyways I wanna finish making it ASAP:)
I often go to yoga on Sunday, and a yoga master is my friend who teaches me it free of charge. I always feel gratitude, so made matcha cookies for her. The appearance of cookies is not good but its taste is super delicious with the bitter taste of matcha. I have a plan to bake a matcha cake using remaining of the matcha powder next time:)
