The other day [ profile] noir_au_blanc wrote some really kind words about me and I just wanted to publicly thank her Wハート It may not always seen like it but I have a low self-esteem, so when someone I've never met personally things such nice things of me, it makes me feel very happy音符

The title of today's entry, 木漏れ日:: Sunlight filtering through the trees comes from a word she featured in her journal some time back, and also expresses how I feel about my life these days. Sunlight filtering through the trees. It's so beautiful and it warms you without being overwhelming. That's exactly how things are now. 


Some months ago, my friend Vix and I participated in a color festival known as HOLI (होली),where part of celebrating consists of throwing different colored powders at each other.  We were a bit shy at first because we didn't know anyone, but time went by and it got pretty fun!

And now, it seems that there is a mini-marathon taking place in early December involving the same idea! From what I understand, every mile has a different color, so the further you run, the more colors you'll end up being covered in. It seems like so much fun, so I've decided to start training for it! I'm a speed-runner, but this isn't a race I want to speed through. I have to work on building my endurance, so that I can take my time going through it and get as many colors as I can! 
I'm getting better at managing my time, which means I have more time to look up recipies and cook new things. I've also begun baking again! I'm not any good at it yet, but I plan on improving little by little. 

Next month is my birthday and I'll be 24 years old. Usually, I have a big party with my friends but this time, I don't really want to celebrate like that. However, I do want a nice present! Actually, theres nothing I really need but I do want a cute and adult-ish planner. Starting January, I'm going to be busier than I am now, so if I used a nice planner, I think things will go more smoothly. Usually, I buy the cheapest one and customize it myself but this time, I want to buy a better planner....

That is actually one of my favorite words in Japanese. Really pretty.

Glad you're enjoying yourself.

Yeah it really is. Japan is full of pretty words, isn't it? Such a poetic language. What a shame a lot of it is being replaced with foreign words.

I couldn't agree with you more. It actually bugs me when languages like that adopt less appropriate foreign words. A lot of them don't have a direct translation so you lose a lot of the meaning and komorebi is prime example of those words that you just can't properly convey in another language.

I hear you on that. Unfortunately, pretty soon, all languages will be meshed in to one, I'm sure.

Being organized is important. Especially when you're air headed. I tend to write literally everything down.

Having a cool planner always helps - I have a Gustav Klimt planner (so pretty!) and I take it everywhere and all. It makes me feel better <3

I've met quite a few people who have started practicing for this event. I've also met people who plan on just walking the entire thing. Since it's not exactly a race (everyone is for the most part going to get painted!) I don't think people care about whether or not they are actually in shape as long as they have fun.

Colorful, happy faces, yay!! ^__^

Everyone says I'm still young, but I feel quite old already!

Thanks! I wish they would do something like this in Osaka. I know a group of foreigners who get together every so often and do something similar in Tokyo, but I haven't found anything like it in Kansai.

Nice pictures - a colour festival sounds like a good place to go and take lots of snaps.

Also, I like your wall planner!

I'm worried about taking my camera, actually.
If the colored sand they through gets in to the gears of the camera, it would be a pain to repair, wouldn't it?

"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★
