forever_wandering: (PENSITIVE)
Organizing all my photos has reminded me of so many things I didn't even realize I forgot. One of those things, for example, is moving in Japan. Many of my friends are in the process of moving to new prefectures or new apartments. I read about how hard it is for them and usually comment with things like, "I can't imagine having to do all that!" but I realized today, I can't imagine having to do it, but I've done it.  I just didn't have to do it alone. 
I moved from Ikebukuro to Yokohama to Osaka. 


The first place was a little studio for two in Ikebukuro. There, I lived with a friend of a friend. The neighborhood was nice but the studio just didn't have the space I wanted. After that, I moved in to a small house in Yokohama, provided by Ferris University. Again, it was meant for two. The neighborhood here was also nice but full of children, which drove me a little insane. Our neighbors were a bit weird too. Some time after that, I was moved to a different apartment meant for three people. I loved living here. The building was above a shop, an across the street there were several convenience stores and restaurants. My best friend at the time was living next door and my future new boyfriend lived on the top floor. Eventually, I followed him to Osaka. The place was nice...though the apartment was a bit small, and the area wasn't in walking distance of a train station. So, in the end we moved again to the final place, which is currently where all my things still are. 
In all cases, I've had people to help me move or to share the cost of moving with me, so all in all, it hadn't been too difficult, as far as I remember. I'm still paying that apartment despite it being just me now. A friend is helping me with it. These days, I'm wondering if I'll stay there or move some place else. When I first came back to LJ I mentioned that it had been too hard for me to even step foot in to that apartment again but...now I can't decide if I want to stay there because it's where all our memories are. 

What to do. What to do. 




"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★
