forever_wandering: (POSITIVE OUTLOOK)
I'm not sure how I did it, but I managed to get two weeks worth of work done in one week, which means that next week, I can be as lazy as I want. I'll most likely spend it in bed with a bowl of strawberries, trying to start reading 神様のカルテ. There are several books, but I'm only focused on the first one. 


The DVD for 神様のカルテ came out last month, but I really don't want to watch it until I finish the novel.  My goal is to complete this novel by the end of this year. The book is only 252 pages, but because it's loaded with kanji and vocabulary I'm not familiar with, I'm giving myself that amount of time. To give myself less time would be setting myself up for failure. 

I met up with some friends from high school today and it was pretty fun! We mostly sat in a cafe had had bubble tea, but we still laughed a lot more than expected. They kept insisting that I had changed so so much and that they were amazed at the person I had become. I know I've changed mentally and I knew I had changed to a degree physically, but it wasn't until I compared two pictures side by side that I realized I really have changed!  On the left is the person they remember, on the right is the person I've become. Now that I am more serious about getting in shape, I wonder what I will look like in another two years. 


 In two weeks, I'll be meeting with a few more classmates. I can't wait.

Already, we're hitting the second week of February. Wow.  
I was pretty lazy all this week, even though I had tons of things to do, so this week is going to be insanely busy. I'll need to somehow manage to get all of this weeks AND last weeks things done....  I WILL NEVER BE LAZY AGAIN

My best friend from forever ago will be here in three weeks. As soon as I get everything that needs to get done, done, I'll need to start working on some kind of plan. I have no idea where to take her for some good sight-seeing. I've never been a tour-guide...and I've always kept away from major tourist spots...  

On that same note,
I spoke to Kazu today, and it seems like I'm in charge of planning the events of our next trip as well. I had simply planned on driving around until we found something we wanted to check out but....I don't think that's gonna fly. It's going to be tough. I'm easy to entertain. Kazu's easy to entertain...but I don't know his friend Shouji too I'm not sure where he would like to go... 


I went to the volunteer center and got some materials to study for the JLPT exam, even though I don't really know if I'll actually take it yet. I keep saying I will, since everyone keeps bugging me to, then we end up forgetting about it to go traveling or something... 
Anyway! I got a 77 on the first half that I completed...and I can live with that because the book is for the 2級. 77 on the first half of the 2級 isn't bad for me, since up until now I didn't even have confidence I could pass the 4級.

I really want to try and take some kind of formal Japanese class.... but I'm not sure if I have the time. I should just force all my guys to put on suits and play teacher for me =D ...but then I'd learn all this weird Japanese like I've been doing, instead of pretty, formal Japanese.




"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★
