forever_wandering: (RELAXED)
I have a lot of guy friends. By a lot, I mean I'd need to grow four extra hands if I wanted to count them all on my fingers. And unfortunately, most of those guys are the same. They like the same music, same fashion, same food, same places...and they're all pretty predictable.This means that when I tell one of them to surprise me, I don't ever actually expect to be surprised Though I fake it rather well! 

K-san however, managed to score one for the team. I don't him to surprise me--and he DID. 



This wasn't my first visit to Kyoto. It was however, my first trip that didn't involve drinking under bridges with people I didn't really know, followed by a drunk round of karaoke. 
We had originally planned on heading out bright and early at 8AM, but we had ended up drinking too much the night before and Kaz ended up crashing at my hotel. We both woke up at around 10PM, then decided K-san would run home, change, then we'd meet again at Osaka station at noon. 

.....We ended up meeting at 1:00, both of us still feeling...well, hung over. But! We were troopers! And we still walked all over Kyoto taking random pictures and laughing at things that weren't even really that funny. 

Aside from Kyoto Tower, we chose to stay away from major major tourist spots because neither of us felt like dealing with crowds. So, we went to smaller, still somewhat popular temples instead, and even got to watch a wedding!  

After all that hiking, we headed to Kyoto tower so I could get my precious night view!

A year ago, I would have had no interest in Kyoto, it's Temples and it's history...but now...let me say, I wouldn't mind settling there. 




"An ugly duckling growing out of her feathers."

Hello. I'm Zia, and this is most obviously my journal. I write about my life between Japan and the US, and all the adventures I find myself in. People often say they are envious of the life I seem to live, but the truth is, I feel a little unsatisfied with it myself, so I've decided to do something about it--to find what really makes me happy. Hopefully by documenting my life, I can figure out where I need to be heading. This journal is my way of opening my world to those around me in hopes of meeting people searching for the same thing or encountering people who have already gone through this kind of struggle. 

Back in my high school days, I used to be a bit of a nerd. I was really in to comic books of all kinds, action figures...all that jazz.  These days, though my interest in comic books re-surfaces every so often, I'm very much more in to things like fashion, dance, music, travel, tea, baking, writing letters, photography, animals and fitness. I'm a straight shooter--meaning I do not (or rather, can not?) lie. Keeping up with lies is too much trouble. 

Anyway, there is more information about me on my profile. Feel free to take a look there or catch me on another site★
