forever_wandering: (UGH!)
I have weird dreams. Everyone has weird dreams. Usually, we wake up, forget about them and go on with our lives--or at least that's what I usually do. Today however, I had such a weird dream that I'm still feeling bothered by it. They say that dreams are simply bits and pieces of what's running around in our memories before we go to sleep. If that's true, the things that appeared in this dream...should have never appeared. These were things I forced myself to lock away and forget about long time ago. 

My favorite grandmother that died. 
A child that drowned. 
The car accident. 
The lack of faith I used to have in my parents...

....random things I've put away for so long. 

There was a bit of humor in it, though. Throughout the whole mess of my dream, no matter what was going on, there was a man insisting I update my  Microsoft office word. Yes sir, that really should be my priority, shouldn't it? 

Pft. I don't even use word...

This month is almost over and soon, friends will come visit me!!! 

Many of my friends are looking forward to having some authentic Puerto Rican cooking. Unfortunately, it's been forever since I've cooked anything remotely Puerto Rican...so I decided I better get on learning it. So, I've really been paying attention to my cooking. I've been playing around with colors and flavors, mixing and matching...   Starting off with the most basic Puerto Rican dish: Yellow rice, beans and salad. 

Tonight I'll be putting together a proper menu, so I know what dishes I need to practice..and then I need to look up what ingredients I can use in substitute for the actual ones used. 

Maybe if I got to wear the big white chef hat, I'd feel a bit more confident. 


Can you cook? Do you cook often? 




"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★
