forever_wandering: (POSITIVE OUTLOOK)

Today has been pretty awesome. It's not often that I get to say that. 
I woke up at 6am to run some errands, and on the way back home, played a round of telephone tag with the guy I mentioned in my last entry. We finally managed to get a hold of each other just as I was getting home, and we had a fun conversation. It turns out that he'll be coming to visit me sometime this month, though we haven't exactly decided when and for how long... and that he was saddened by a picture he saw of me with another guy on my FB. 

On the phone, I kept my cool but inside, I was jumping like a school girl. I mean, I had honestly thought I'd never see him again, which was part of the reason why I was so set on simply being such a good friend to him. Of course, his coming over doesn't mean he and I will get involved but...

Am I dreaming? First my best friend from forever decides to come over and now my new love interest? Is this Take sending all this good fortune my way?  Whatever the reason, I'm grateful for it. Though I'm not unhappy with my life, I've been feeling as though something is supposed to be changing.

I went to get an international license today. Now I have a total of...three licenses! Which I'm sure I'm not supposed to, but they never took the other ones. Now I can drive in the US, Japan, and any other country I please! This means that at some point, I will plan a road trip across France or Ireland =D Yes, of course, I could take public transportation...But nothing is as amazing and refreshing as a drive through the country side of a foreign country. 

My facebook detox has been going well. For the past month, I've been checking my facebook on Wednesdays and Sundays ONLY and it has been doing me good. I have so much more time to do other things. I want to try and cut it down to Sundays only, but I don't think I'm ready for that just yet. 

I finally finished re-watching Yankee-kun to Megane-chan! I had been meaning to re-watch it since I hadn't been able to enjoy it the first time around, and I loved it this time! It was just too cute.

 It really is hard to be productive when the conditions around you are so perfect for being lazy. However, that feeling you get when you realize you've finished everything and still have hours left in the day is amazing. Hopefully, tomorrow will be just as productive. After I finish everything that absolutely has to be done & the planning I need to do for my friend's visit, I want to type up and post all my journal entries I have written on paper. I haven't posted any of my real adventures since the Kyoto trip, and I really want to before I forget about them.  I also need to post all the entries about my road trip across the US a
couple months ago.... I'm so far behind! 

I started watching "Let's watch the Meteor Shower" today, which is the Chinese adaptation of Hana Yori Dango. I've been a Hana Yori Dango fan since my first year of junior high, so watching this drama, despite not being able to find it anywhere with subtitles, was an absolute must. Even with the lack of subtitles, I'm following the story quite well and am falling in love with it.


Valentines day is right around the corner. Some of my guy friends have been dropping hints but this year I've decided that I'll give chocolates to myself and no body else. I know it's perfectly acceptable to give chocolates to friends, but giving chocolates to myself this year has a special meaning for me. This year, I've really come to love and appreciate myself so much more. The love that I used to whole heartedly give to others, I will now give to myself.   I want to celebrate this feeling by confessing to....Myself. It might not make sense to most people, but it makes sense to me. 

I talked to mom and there's family drama all over the place. It seems that family from Puerto Rico has been calling her all day to find out just what happened between the two cousins that fought. One cousin called everyone in Puerto Rico to whine and complain, but the other has stayed relatively quiet about the whole situation, so the entire family is feeling rather confused. Since mom is the closest, they expect her to be in the know....But mom wants nothing to do with it. I feel like manning up for her, calling everyone and telling them to back the hell off. 

My FAIL for the day: When speaking Japanese while I'm half asleep, I tend to mix up my ぎ's and き's. Today, Yuta asked me if I needed anything. I meant to tell him I needed my うわぎ、my coat. What did I tell him I needed? うわき. Extramarital sex. 
He offered me a cookie instead.

Good morning, Good evening, Hello. 

I'm sitting here sipping on Organic Green Tea, which actually isn't as bad as I expected it to be, wondering why it has to be so cold. Seriously, you think that after living in Alaska, I'd develop some kind of tolerance for the cold--seriously. But no. I wasn't that lucky Probably because I kept leaving.

A conversation I had through comments on my last entry really got me thinking about all my friends and the relationships we have. Someone once told me that a best friend didn't need to be told they were a best friend--nor did they care whether they were or not. They were too busy enjoying the time you guys spend together. That friend, would have to be a girl named "Lisa." 

We met for the first time when I started studying in Philadelphia. She was there for a year on exchange. Once her year was up, she went back to Japan. A few months after that, I ended up transferring to her college in Yokohama. We were never the hang out 24/7 type, but we always manage to get together for good, long, much needed girl-talks. There is no drama in this relationship. No jealousy, no competition....just friendship. I love it. 

It's been four years since we first met. I've only managed to hold a friendship with one other person for that long and unfortunately, I don't have any pictures with her. It's something I need to remedy when she comes to see me in March.  

Also, a few days ago, I actually sat down in front of a TV and started watching this drama:

I caught it somewhere towards the middle, so I'm not sure what Kamikawa's deal is just yet, but this drama is GREAT! It's hilarious in an evil kind of way (Of course it is, isn't that how it always is with twins?) but so touching at the same time! I've never been sucked in by the first episode like this. I'm in love. 




"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★
