We took a trip to a Spanish-style garden, where they had this gorgeous bell tower. It's a shame we didn't think to pack a bentou because the weather was just perfect for a picnic! We spent the day walking around the garden, feeding fish and chasing squirrels. It would have been nice to go in to the tower, but it turns out you have to have a kind of membership in order to enter, and the membership was too expensive, so we just enjoyed it from the outside. Every half-hour, the bells would ring and play a different Christmas melody. It was quite cute! 
It was built by the Dutch sometime during the 1920's in honor of the guy who had wanted to create the park in the first place.

M and I had our first major issue, which involved me just walking away for almost two hours and not talking to him for some time after that. When I did finally talk to tell him why I had gotten angry, he only snickered and said "Oh okay," which made me mad all over again.....
Sometimes it's like talking to a wall, honestly. 
A friend of mine who is very in to gyaru, gave me a reddish-brownish wig as an early birthday present. Before we went out today, I put it on for her so she could see how it turned out and I was surprised at the difference. It really made me miss having chemically straightened hair as opposed to this wavy mess I now have. When my hair is straightened, it actually looks very much like the wig, give or take a few inches. Anyway, I think I'll be taking the wig and wearing it around Tokyo during my last few weeks of freedom before I before I begin working! Unless I start straightening my hair on a daily basis again.... I don't really want to do that though because I don't want to damage my hair. I need it to grow out so that my waves aren't so poofy....

Speaking of birthdays, mine is less than 10 days away and I've finally decided that I really don't want to do anything. I won't even buy myself a gift. Instead I'm going to save the money for my trip to Kawagoe (川越市) in Saitama.

I had gone once before, but at the time, I couldn't appreciate how beautiful historical settings were. I love going to places that make me feel like I've stepped back in time. I'd rather spoil myself in Kawagoe than spoil myself here =) I wonder if it's as nice as everyone says.

I was packing my suitcase and I found my old camera! Back in March, I accidently got some sand in to the lense and the camera stopped working, but yesterday, I went to turn it on for old time's sake, and it worked! It's already an old 12 mega-pixel camera, but I've had so many adventures with it that I feel I can't just throw it away so easily. 
スーツケースを荷造りしていた時、7ヶ月前に壊れちゃったカメラを見付けました!さっき、友達と海へ行って、カメラも持っていきました。砂がレーンズに入っちゃって、カメラが使えなくなりました。そのカメラを使うのはちょっと懐かしかったから、オンのボタンを押してみると、何気にカメラが付きました!!びっくりして、嬉しかったです!実は、このカメラはもう古いのです。12メガピクセルしかないんですけど・・・・このカメラと色々な冒険があったし、簡単に捨てる物じゃない。

But....I've also been eyeing a certain Nikon camera for a while now, but it's still 45000円 and only 10 megapixels, which is less than what my camera now is... But this camera is still a best seller, so despite the low MPX it must be good....  Maybe when I finally reach my goal weight, I'll buy this for myself! 
でも、そうは言っても、新しいカメラを購入したいと思います。しかし、気に入ったカメラのメガピクセルは今のカメラのより低くて、値段はまだ高過ぎています。今のカメラは12メガピクセルで、値段は16000円ぐらいでした。好きになったカメラは10メガピクセルで、45500円ぐらいです。それなのに、そのカメラはベストセラーですよ。とりあえず、購入しない方が良いと思っています。たぶん、もっと痩せたら、自分にプレゼントします!

I went to a haunted house event with my friend and it was really fun! I screamed alot, my throat started hurting and now I've lost my voice but I feel satisfied, lol. We didn't have time to go in to all six houses, but the three that we went to were fairly scary, so we didn't mind that we didn't get to see everything. I had wanted to take a lot of pictures, but I was always running from some kind of zombie or monster, so I couldn't really take any pictures (Unless you include all the blurs and finger shots! lol)  
友達と一緒にお化け屋敷へ行って来て、すごく楽しかったです!悲鳴を上げ過ぎて、喉が痛く、声が出せないんですけど、満足な気持ちがあります(笑) 全部の6軒のお化け屋敷に入るには時間が足りませんでした。でも、3軒の入った場所はかなり怖かったので、全部のお化け屋敷に入られなくても気になりません。たくさん写真を撮りたかったけど、いつもお化けから逃げていたし、写真が撮れませんでした(笑)

Before the event started, we got to preview the Christmas event. The event starts next month and lasts until December, so I probably have time to visit it before I go back to Japan soon!
そのイベントが始まる前、クリスマスのイベントを予告篇できました!イベントは来月の20日から12月22日までです。来月始まるから、日本に戻る前に、イベントへ行く時間があるかもしれません!

 There are so many things to write about but no time to do it in. It's already October and I still have to write about events from September汗

M and I headed to Orlando to see THE BLUE MAN GROUPWハートI've been wanting to see this show for a while, so I'm really happy we were finally able to catch it上げ上げ We also ended up upgrading our tickets so that we could have a chance to meet the performersにこ The show was only about two hours long, but it was insanely funビックリ If given the chance, I would definitely go see it again音符
色々な出来事について書きたいんですが、時間が足りません!もう10月ですが、すべての9月に起きた出来事について書かなくちゃ。
Mさんと一緒にオーランドへ行って、ブルマングループのパフォーマンスを見に行きました。本当のところ、前からこの演奏を観たかったから、やっと、観ることができて本当によかったです!チケットをアップグレードをしたから、出演者に会う機会がありました!演奏は2時間しかなかったけれど、ものすごく楽しかったです。チャンスがあったら、必ずもう一度観に行きたいと思います!

On Saturday, I'm going to a Haunted House with my friendおばけ。 I've never been to one, so I'm pretty excited but at the same time, I'm hoping it's not too scary笑 When I imagine an American Haunted House, I don't think of ghosts. I think of monsters and murderers and psychosダッシュダッシュダッシュダッシュダッシュ
土曜日に友達と幽霊屋敷へ行く予定です。一回も行ったことがなくて、とってもわくわくしています!と、同時にそんなに怖くなかったら良いな、と思っています(笑)アメリカの幽霊屋敷について想像してみると、幽霊とかじゃなくて、お化けとか殺人者とかサイコパスなどを想像してしまいます。

If you don't hear from me within a week, I'm definitely deadががん
一週間のうちに私からアップデートがなかったら、絶対に死んでるってことです。

読んでくれて、ありがとうございました!

"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★
