Love the look of the living room, but the view of the truck parked right outside the window spoils it a bit for me...

Use it in cooking (sauces) and baking and then don't buy it again! Or eat it with jelly or something else that has a strong flavour

The hardest thing is spening the holidays in a country that doesn't celebrate them, meaning you may have to work and for everybody around you it's just a normal day. When I was teaching English in Japan I wore tinsel around my neck and brought in candy on xmas day so that it felt special to me, since I wasn't able to "celebrate" until the evening after work.

If you don't love fruit, there's no reason to force yourself to eat it. As long as you eat enough vegetables, you'll be getting the vitamins and nutrients (and less carbs to boot!)

I think it balances out the colorful art on the other wall. Don't paint it for that reason, only if you don't actually like it

Could you dry/style your hair in your bedroom instead? I grew up doing that as in the UK we have no electrical outlets in the bathroom (except for a shaver). The only reason I do my hair in the bathroom now is that the light is better...

I agree - that fridge is nowhere near pint sized!!! They come in sizes much smaller than that! Unless Joy has a large family, surely it's plenty big enough? The oven also looks standard European size to me. Not so difficult to manage with either of those. But the room itself, yes, that's pretty small.
