forever_wandering: (HAPPY&EXCITED)


On the 11th of March, I went to an event called "Holi fest" or "The Festival of colors," with a friend from high school. "Holi fest" is an Indian event celebrating the beauty of human life and nature. At this festival, you throw colorful sand at everyone around you while cheerfully shouting "Happy Holi!" There are water games and spicy food too! 

I had never heard of this kind of event until my friend had told me about it, so I was a little nervous about whether or not I'd actually enjoy it, but in the end, it was amazingly fun! People kind of stared at us at first, but as the day went on, we were able to join in on all the games. We started off just throwing sand at everyone, but when a guy shot us with the hose, we purchased water guns and retaliated. 

I'm seriously glad I chose to wear old clothes to this event. Everyone was throwing lots of sand at us and we ended up getting pretty dirty.  My shoes and shirt are still stained! 

We definitely want to go again! 




"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★
