With less than a week remaining until the New Year, I woke up early today and got started on cleaning out my room. I worked on it from morning to noon before finally deciding to take a break. It wasn't so much that there was a lot of trash, but there were a lot of things that needed to be dusted, wiped down and re-organized. 

The part I'm dreading the most is the closet. My closet is already pretty organized, since I like to take care of my clothes and shoes, but there are so many things that I don't need or can't use any more. Compared to last year (Or even a few months ago!) I've lost quite a bit of weight, so there are a lot of things that just don't fit me properly. However, I can't bring myself to throw them out. I've become quite attached to them...

My goal is to start the year off completely fresh and be as organized as I possibly can. By getting rid of all the necessary clutter, I can focus on the important things--though I'm not entirely sure what those things are just yet. I want to keep as little in my room as possible. The simpler my room is, the less distractions I have, the more I can focus on whatever goals I established for myself.  Like....focusing on studies, improving my Japanese, losing more weight, learning Korean, developing my fashion sense and finish reading all these books I have piled up...

In the US, this major clean up is called "Spring Cleaning," and as the name suggests, it starts in the Spring since this season represents freshness and growth, but what's the point of starting anew in the middle of the year? Why not start at the beginning? In celebration of the new year, we dress up in our best clothes. What's the point of looking your best if your environment doesn't feel like it's the best? 





"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★
