forever_wandering: (HAPPY&EXCITED)

I started treating one of my dogs for mange. I didn't think it was mange at first, and looking at her now I'm still not entirely sure, but I've decided to try treating her with some home remedies just to be on the safe side. Has anyone ever dealt with something like this before? If you have, any advice would be great! 

I woke up early to make breakfast while M-san played with one of my dogs in the yard. Occasionally, I'd look out the window and laugh. Watching him run around was just too cute. Once I was one cooking, we ate breakfast together, changed, and headed off to Busch Gardens.
At the gate, we were told that we'd receive a free ticket for a second visit if we stopped by a different counter, so we did that and decided we'd be back the next day to finish off whatever we couldn't finish on our first day. Since the park was so crowded on the first day, we did end up using that second ticket in order to finish the park. We rode every roller coaster, watched every show, walked through every exhibit and even went on a safari ride to feed wild animals! It was so much fun!

After the safari rid e, my allergies started acting up for the first time in a million years. I told M-san it was all his fault, because I had worn myself out trying to please him, but we both knew it was from touching all those wild animals. My eyes got so red, my nose got all stuffy, and my voice got all weird. M-san was a good sport about it though, and only made fun of me half the time and at the end of the day, he even tried to give me some of the medicine he had brought with him for the plane ride.^^;; 

Oh, and I'm pretty sure we've eliminated my fear of heights. It was done unwillingly, but it was done! Now, I'm pretty sure I can tackle buildings and rides of any heights! All thanks to M-san ignoring my screams of fear and panic. This guy...he's always forcing me in to new experiences. As he puts it, he's always going to be "My First." But I don't think I'll complain! 
forever_wandering: (AMUSED)
I just finished LOL-ing to a message I found in my inbox when I logged in a bit ago, in which someone asked me if I was some kind of Call girl specializing in Asian men. I mean...REALLY??!? Yes, I'm always writing about some Asian guy but that is because 90% of my friends are Asian guys. Maybe I should have been offended, but instead, I'm amused. Maybe I'm more like an escort? My friends call me up and say "Zia, come with me to so and so place!" and I usually follow.....

In any case, I'm definitely not a Call girl (苦笑). 

Anyway, I might be going somewhere for a few days at the end of this month. Where? 


A friend of mine has been feeling rather bored and trapped with his life lately, and decided to go to New York in order to clear his mind. He said he'd like to meet me there if it was possible. I can't afford to stay for the entire time he's there but I'm going to attempt to swing by for a day or two. Still looking at hotel prices. Anyone know of any cheap but decent places to stay? 

(R-san--the one in the middle--is  the one I will be meeting in NY.
T-san on the far right there, can not make it, unfortunately.)

If we do end up meeting up, I imagine it'll be interesting. We've never hung out without T-san being there to serve as a kind of translator why my Japanese or R-san's English turns to mush. I also still have to let M-san know. He and I aren't dating, but he always notifies me whenever he'll be gone travelling, who he's going with and for how long. It's only fair for me to do the same, right? 


I also went to the market and negotiated a better price on a tea I had been interested in trying for some time now.
I still 
have a few packs of Organic coffee to get through before I open this one but I'm looking forward to seeing if it's as good as my friends promise.

Teas that are labeled as Detox te
as always catch my attention because I wonder if they actually work. Maybe it's because I drink so much tea that they've become ineffective but whenever I try a "detox tea," I never really feel any change. This one has been given five stars by people who have purchased it before and comments say that the taste is quite unique. Lets see if this one actually does what it says!

If you have any tea recommendations, feel free to share! I go through tea on a bi-weekly basis, so if you recommend something, I will most definitely get around to trying it 
It doesn't have to be tea with a specific function such as for losing weight, detoxing or improving circulation. Teas like this make me curious, but I love tea in general

I'm also in desperate need of new music! I'm a huge fan of Japanese Hip-hop and Korean Pop. American adult alternative is great too. 

My sleep schedule is all out of whack these days. I'm going to have to remedy this somehow. Meh, I still have two books and a magazine to catch up on...But I think I'll dance around my room for a little bit. 




"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★
