Better and better…

Things are moving towards the direction I like.

For now, I will just leave it that way.

Once I get the ‘thing’

and once the business is settled,

I will let you know what I am up to.

hint!!

Little Life

Oh boy, I got to share this with you

because I am so excited.

***********************************

A while ago,

I went to a flower shop because

I suddenly wanted water plants (is that how it’s called?)

and a man at the shop

kindly gave me some for free

because apparently, the ones I wanted were

kind of like a weed in water that grows rapidly.

When he gave me a bag of those weedy water plants

he told me there might be fish eggs attached

that it might hatch soon.

At first, I was excited about the idea of having fish babies but

I stopped expecting it since it had been

nearly 3 weeks since I got the plants….

However,  I looked inside the bowl today

and…..TADA!!

….there I found fish babies!!

There are so tiny that I can’t take photos

but they are so cute.

Well, they have two black eyes and a thin tail

….that is it.

There is nothing really ‘cute’ about it

but well, they are cute.

I am just so moved by this little creature

that is born out of seemingly nowhere.

Life is a miracle.

I hope they grow fine.

****************************************************

I have been pretty lazy about

updating my blog these days but

I think I will update it more often

now that I broke the seal of’ ‘neglect the blog package’.

So, hello again to everybody!!

***********************************************

I have been pretty busy.

My mind has been busy.

It’s good.

Things are moving

and I am planning.

It’s all good.

You know what’s bad though?

When I get bored, I start to think

‘let’s see….IF i won a lotto…what would I do?’

Now, that is a sad thing to think.

But the good thing is,

when I think about it,

I always remember to give 30% of my prize

to my parents…..in my mind.

(but well, IF I really really do win the lotto

I would definitely give 30% to my parents….but let me stop

thinking about this if-lotto thing because it’s silly.

How did this get here?

From a little life to lotto…???

Anyways, see you soon again.

My friends and I went out singing

until 5 AM and I am sleepy….

Rain and wind make me miss my time in Seattle.

I have been thinking about the days there these days.

I guess the season is finally changing.

Tokyo is finally cooling down (…thank goodness!)

and the this grey sky reminds me of Seattle.

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:**:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:**:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

Time is passing by like crazy, and it’s rather scary.

Flipping through a calendar,

I realized there were only 3 and a half pages left for this year.

….Oh my.

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:**:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

Boy, I shouldn’t be feeling this way.

I got so much stuff I have to finish

by tomorrow morning.

Grr, You can do it, Yoshi.

Flooded with Colors

I realized I haven`t updated

my blog in a while.

It`s not that I haven`t been doing anything.

I have actually been pretty active:

going to a gym 4 days a week,

still doing the same job,

hanging out with friends,

kidnapping a cat from downstairs and playing with him

(only when he can’t go back inside his home

because he is a naughty cat which comes back

home after his master falls asleep, tsk tsk.)

+.。.+゜゜+.。.+゜゜+.。.++.。.+゜゜+.。.+゜゜+.。.+

I guess the problem about me not updating my blog

is that I haven’t been taking

many photos recently

and I don’t really like a blog entry

without photos…

but anyways, I feel like I should write about today

because I did something that is

very very JAPANESE…

Tada!!

Do you know this?

It’s called puri-kura (Print club)

and it has been popular since I was about 9 or something.

People used to wait in line for like 6 hours

to get one photo-sticker taken at the booth

but now, the machine isn’t as popular

as it was before.

Well, let me say it right:

it is popular still but there are

abundant of these machines all over the place.

Oh boy, the technology that is

involved in this machine has improved

like thousand-cookie-times more.

When I was little, there was only one shape of sticker

and you only got to pick one frame and that was it.

Now, you can decide the number of the frames

and you can draw on the sticker etc…

。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚ *+:。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚ *+:。.。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚

Trading the puri-kura stickers

with friends

was such a huge thing among us.

I still have the album with

all the stickers from back then.

(I get embarrassed seeing those. They all look pretty awful.)

。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚ *+:。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚ *+:。.。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚

Anyways, I took puri-kura for the first time

in the last 2.5 years or so.

The girl on my right is Mallory

who just arrived in Tokyo last night.

Oh man, I can’t believe how energetic

you were after being on a plane

for 13 hours and waking up at 7 AM this morning.

I guess the power of kawaii-ness

works as much as Redbull does.

。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚ *+:。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚ *+:。.。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚

Hm, what else should I say?

I don’t want to conclude the entry of today

with a line

‘I had such a fun day’

even though  had a so much fun

re-exploring Harajuku-Shibuya area with Mallory.

。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚ *+:。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚ *+:。.。.。:+* ゚ ゚゚

I guess, instead, I will say

…my brain is now flooded with all the cheerful colors.

Oh, and also…

Mallory wants to be in Japan

and I want to be in NY.

I wonder if there is any good trick

we could use to fulfill both of our wish.

Hmm.

やるせない。

今日、偶然のぞいたブログで

ひまわり署名プロジェクト、というものを見つけました。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

最近、幼児ふたりが

親に置いてきぼりにされて死んでしまった事件があり、

最近では毎日のように

『子供への虐待はどうしたらいいのか』

『子供への虐待はなぜ起こるのか』

っていう議論がなされてて、

私も、色んなことを考えてる。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

何ができるか、って考えてた時に

見つけたひまわり署名プロジェクト

みんなにも、是非、チェックしてみてほしい。

そして、署名してほしい。

o+◆+o。..:*o+◆+o。..:*o+◆+o。..:*o+◆+o。..:*

本当、やるせなくなるよね。

親の自分勝手のために、

自分の欲求のために、

この世から消えていく、消されていく命のことを想うと。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

子供ってさ、

どんなに虐待されても

多くは、親をかばうんだってね。

しかも、虐待されると

「自分が悪いのかな」

って思うんだって。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

3歳と、2歳にも満たないふたりは

きっと最後まで

『お母さんはどこだろう』

『探さなきゃ』 『会いたい』

って思ってたんだろう…って考えると

本当に、本当に悲しい。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

きっと、23歳の「母」のことを

(私は、この容疑者を「母」とは言いたくないけど。)

憎んだこともないんだ。

だって、まだきっと

憎しみ

なんて心の芽生えていない年だもん。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

どんなに怖かっただろう。

どんなに寂しかっただろう。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

本当、私はアカの他人だけど

桜子ちゃんと、楓くんを

みんなで

はぐ、

してあげられたらいいのに。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

日本だけじゃない、

虐待は世界中で起こっていて、

ニュースに取り上げられなかった子も沢山いる。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

私は、この桜子ちゃんと楓くんという

名前を借りたけど、

みんなに、伝えたい。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

今度は、幸せな家庭に生まれてきてほしい。

あなたちは何も悪いことをしてないから、

なにがあっても

自分を責めないでね、って。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

言いたいことは、

沢山あるけど、でも

収拾が付かなくなるから、ここまで。

*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*:;:*

ひとりの声は、届きにくいかもしれないけど

みんなで声を揃えれば、

少しずつでも

大きな変化が得られるから。

虐待致死傷罪制定及び虐待防止社会に向けての請願署名

My shoulder…

Hello there.

How are you all doing in this heat?

I am actually doing alright.

It’s hot…but well, what can I say after being

in Thailand for the last 8 months or so?

・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・

I have been taking many photos with

my film cameras instead of my digital one

but since I’ve been using 3 different film cameras

none of the films are done….

Each has like 3 or 4 left?

AND

Oh boy, carrying 3 different cameras

PLUS

a digital camera

is killing my shoulder!!

(…and my poor little camera is

SUPER DUPER heavy…)

I should just concentrate in one camera, right?

But recently, I bought this toy camera

….well, I bought a magazine that came with a camera

that you build by yourself and

I want to take that with myself for sure

but since I am worried if that is actually taking photos or not,

I want to take another film camera

and a digital…

Am I too paranoid or what.

Okay, the point is….

MORE PHOTOS COMING SOON!!

Yes, that is what I wanted to say.

Oh and,

I AM ALIVE!!!

・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・.。*゚♪゚゚+.・

My mom is crazy about rice crackers

and she bought herself a HUGE box of it.

ALIEN?

….it’s actually a squid baby inside

the rice cracker.

まるまる一週間

さて、東京に戻ってから、早丸一週間。

早いね、本当。

東京、そんなに変ってないかな?

ファッションもここ2年くらいあんまり変ってない気がするし。

あっ、でも、東京の6月ってこんなに蒸し暑いんだっけ。びっくり。

というか、私は軽くひきこもり気味。

だって、暑いんだもん。

だって、日本、交通費が高いんだもん。

でも、髪の毛は切って、パーマをかけ、まつげのエクステも復活…。

しかも、今日から毎日ダンベル体操をすると誓ったし…。(続くかな。結果書くよ。結果が出れば。)

やっぱり仕事がら、運動不足になるからね。

ブログのお引越しも、はかどってるし、仕事も毎日しているし。

ま、最初の一週間だし、こんな感じで合格。
