forever_wandering: (PENSITIVE)
I had planned on getting a lot of reading done today. Last month, I started reading 神様のカルテ, but with all the company I've been having and all my traveling, I haven't been able to get past page 15. I made the mistake of turning on my laptop in bed though, and we all know what that means, right? Now it is almost evening and the most I've done is take the book off the shelf. Darn. I'll definitely read before I go to bed though.
I've noticed that my comprehension is a lot better than what I had assumed. Even though I can't read a lot of the kanji, I know what they mean, and so I am able to actually understand the content I am reading. M-san is constantly trying to trick me in to using my Japanese or asking me how my Japanese studies are going. I simply laugh and and answer, "What are you talking about?" But the truth is...I actually am working pretty hard. 

EDIT: Since writing this paragraph, I've fallen asleep three times. So much for reading before bed! 

M-san and I were talking and he started joking about getting married. He then said that I'd get a job while he stayed home. You know, I'm totally up for that idea because I honestly don't see myself staying at home all day cooking and cleaning and all that mess. I'd much rather be out interacting with other people. When I told him I was alright with the idea, he seemed surprised.
I didn't tell him this but I really like the idea of a stay-at-home dad. I appreciate women who give everything up to stay home and take care of their family, but there is something about watching a father with his child that just...it makes my heart so happy in ways I can't explain.  I know with the way things are, both my significant other and I would have to work to make ends meet, but if the time ever came that one of us had to leave our job, I would rather it be him than me. 

What about you? Do you want to be the bread-winner? The house wife/husband? Both? Why? 

M-san and I went to Disney and had a blast. The lines at each attraction were rather long so we had many interesting conversations as we waited. As usual, we argued. He wanted to plan out each attraction we'd go to and I wanted to just go with the flow. I called him controlling, he called me a slacker. We got on Space mountain and forgot all about it once we got off. We seem to have a lot of stupid arguments over things like this, but the fact that we can forget about it in less than five minutes is always great. 

We had a good laugh that morning too, by the way. In the picture, I'm wearing a black shirt and blue jean shorts. He's wearing a blue shirt and khaki pants. When we both walked out of our rooms first thing in the morning, we were both wearing black shirts and khaki shorts, but we both ended up changing because I flipped out over the fact that we looked like a couple. Haha! 

I don't get why couples need to dress alike to show that they're together. I don't believe of making a show out of one's relationship.... To me, it's no different than having your SO/you being on a leash. 
The only time it's acceptable is during Halloween. 




"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★
