forever_wandering: (AMUSED)
I just finished LOL-ing to a message I found in my inbox when I logged in a bit ago, in which someone asked me if I was some kind of Call girl specializing in Asian men. I mean...REALLY??!? Yes, I'm always writing about some Asian guy but that is because 90% of my friends are Asian guys. Maybe I should have been offended, but instead, I'm amused. Maybe I'm more like an escort? My friends call me up and say "Zia, come with me to so and so place!" and I usually follow.....

In any case, I'm definitely not a Call girl (苦笑). 

Anyway, I might be going somewhere for a few days at the end of this month. Where? 

NEW YORK

A friend of mine has been feeling rather bored and trapped with his life lately, and decided to go to New York in order to clear his mind. He said he'd like to meet me there if it was possible. I can't afford to stay for the entire time he's there but I'm going to attempt to swing by for a day or two. Still looking at hotel prices. Anyone know of any cheap but decent places to stay?

(R-san--the one in the middle--is  the one I will be meeting in NY.
T-san on the far right there, can not make it, unfortunately.)


If we do end up meeting up, I imagine it'll be interesting. We've never hung out without T-san being there to serve as a kind of translator why my Japanese or R-san's English turns to mush. I also still have to let M-san know. He and I aren't dating, but he always notifies me whenever he'll be gone travelling, who he's going with and for how long. It's only fair for me to do the same, right?

I also went to the market and negotiated a better price on a tea I had been interested in trying for some time now.
I still 
have a few packs of Organic coffee to get through before I open this one but I'm looking forward to seeing if it's as good as my friends promise.

Teas that are labeled as Detox te
as always catch my attention because I wonder if they actually work. Maybe it's because I drink so much tea that they've become ineffective but whenever I try a "detox tea," I never really feel any change. This one has been given five stars by people who have purchased it before and comments say that the taste is quite unique. Lets see if this one actually does what it says!

If you have any tea recommendations, feel free to share! I go through tea on a bi-weekly basis, so if you recommend something, I will most definitely get around to trying it 
It doesn't have to be tea with a specific function such as for losing weight, detoxing or improving circulation. Teas like this make me curious, but I love tea in general

I'm also in desperate need of new music! I'm a huge fan of Japanese Hip-hop and Korean Pop. American adult alternative is great too. 


My sleep schedule is all out of whack these days. I'm going to have to remedy this somehow. Meh, I still have two books and a magazine to catch up on...But I think I'll dance around my room for a little bit.

It's my first Valentines day on my own, so it doesn't really feel like anything special...But that won't stop me from wishing everyone else a Happy Valentines day =) I hope you get tons of chocolates or diamonds or whatever it is you wanted from that special someone. 

I've decided to take a break from facebook. I won't be deleting my account, but I won't be checking it for a few days. With friends posting information about their every move, I find myself not missing them at all. Despite not having seen many of them in years, I feel like I'm with them all the time and getting sick of them. I want to love my friends again. 

Speaking of friends, some of my friends are truly amazing. I needed some assistance (mainly the reading of some kanji) with some paperwork I needed to send to フェリス. It's like I can't escape this school.Without even asking me, my friend not only helped me with the form, but he called the school to confirm everything I needed to submit and paid what needed to be paid. I often hear girls say they think Japanese guys are cold....but I don't think I could ever think that. All of my friends have taken such good care of me...  I just want to tell them:

I'm still receiving tons of forwarded mail, so I still have a lot of things to fill out, send back...ect... I leave you now with this adorable video of two boys doing an acoustic version of 君に届け。The singer is just too precious. I want to marry his voice.

I decided that this year I seriously wanted to lose weight and become more healthy.  
So, I threw out all the sweets and junk food we had in the house. 

My parents love sweets, so they were a bit irritated, but I just reminded them that they too had promised to lose weight and become healthier throughout the year. Reluctantly, they allowed me to throw out the remaining temptation. 

My goal this year is to lose 5kg. Losing 5 more kg would put me back the same weight I was in junior high. 

Last year, I dropped 10kg, but expecting to lose the same amount this year would just be impossible. 
Also, I'm pretty sure that if I dropped another 10kg...I would die.

Every day is becoming busier and busier...but with a treadmill in the house, I have no excuse not to exercise every day.

My ipod finally died so I have to re-download new music and put it on my iPhone for my run! 
Any recommendations are welcome. 
I'm always up for new music!! 

Thanks!

"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★
