I think you’ll be able to find a job. Are you doing okay pooky? You don’t sound as upbeat.

I’ll call you before you leave for work then.

Subject: apartment in kiyose

i went to see the apartment today and i really like it. the apartment is small, but decent and what i like most is the town and the fact that laura lives downstairs. the rent is 40,000 yen a month and he is only asking for 130,000 yen deposit [REALLY good for japan]. i really want to move out.

i just got home. toshio had his friend drive me home because it was snowing, too dangerous to ride the bike home. i think sumie's going to have a cow tomorrow morning when she realized i left the bike at the the snow. oh well.

it doesn't stay very cold here so by nighttime, snow turns into slush/rain. my umbrella broke on the way home so i was completely soaked, but not too cold.

i might get a second job at a nursery. going to talk to the owner tomorrow. a woman, and she is half chinese i think. still not too sure how long i want to stay here...

the worm song.

[for yorkie]

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,

Guess I'll go eat worms,

Long, thin, slimy ones; Short, fat, juicy ones,

Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.

Down goes the first one, down goes the second one,

Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

Up comes the first one, up comes the second one,

Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

new place

new job

new projects

new challenge

new coffee shop

new people

new friend-boy [just kidding]

enough to send my head spinning in all directions

12:56 pm


Thursday, June 24, 2004

here i am.

in a place.

new and familiar.


floating around in this city.

the cold bites.

pushed around by the wind.

between tall buildings.

my hair rebels in dry frizzes.

my skin peeling.

my heart pounds.

in a strange way.

in anticipation

my mood swings with each question.

doubting myself.

feeling lost.

i have left.

is this better.

life is funny.

and i am silly.

and homesick.

feeling conscious and insecure.

when i should be happy.

i am happy.


the next step.


this is what i want.

this is me.

everything will be okay.

you say.

and this time.

i trust you.

7:14 pm


Wednesday, May 26, 2004


what exactly am i looking for.

maybe what's right will never feel right.

but my chance-taking days seem to be over.

i have no morecourage.

but that's strange.

you never hurt me like the others.

the house is empty.

that's almost. appropriate.


except when the two cats crept up to stare at me.

silly me.

i'd be angry right now.

a few months ago.

an empty house.

not one phone call.

feeling neglected.

thank you forhelping me find some peace.

the ability to forgive.

see what i probably knew all along.

they are not to blame completely.

with that.

i feel okay right now.

making myself dinner.

takingmyself backto bed.

there's stuff to do.

i'm tired.

the room's a mess.

i can't work when it's messy.

i just want to crawl back and sleep.

i am weak.

i despise feeling sluggish.

indulging. drowningmyself in this feebleness.


i am.

back at work.



but i had fun.

saw a barry bond homerun with beer and garlic fries. fetch me a $3 million ball.

had some cheesecake and friends on my birthday.presents and more presents.

prime rib in burlingame.

watching dogs play on the beach.

fenton's and ghiradelli's ice cream.

watching time fly.

flying in a sports car.

sampling all the nearbyboba places.

kill bill 2 -5 point palm exploding heart technique.

dim sum tradition.

going to sleep by midnight every night. =P

karaoke and more food. and not once was i drunk.

i love trips.

thank you [all]for making it great. =)

Monday, April 19, 2004

i forgot how cold it was up here.

layering up at night to go out even during summers.

the unpredictable rain.

broken umbrellas.

driving to another city to get to the nearest market that's open.

the annoying traffic everywhere you turn.

the crazy people running across the street at night wearing all black.

it's not raining today.

i'm a lucky girl.

having someone that makes me happy.

closeto me.

this moment.

and happy is such a simple emotion.

at times i let myself forget.

as life complicates.

and confuses.

that it only takes a smile.

the sound of a voice.

new and familiar.

someone who cares.

in the city that i miss so much.

i'm happy. =)

Saturday, April 10, 2004

a quiet day with myself.

alone at home.

a book in my hand.

a drink.passion fruit juice with jelly.

finished eating. happy tummy.

playing my favorite cd at the moment.

thinking about little.

just sitting.


perpetual sleepiness.

allowing mind to drift.



allowing things to be.


just content. for a moment. happy even.

the beach walking the doggies with you. watching scary movies at night and tommy's chili cheese fries. drinking too much wine house full of friendly people. disneylandyou carryingmy purse andlittle red lunch box [sssshhh ]. singing to me [falling sleep halfway through the song] when i can'tsleep. citywalk countdown a new and better year hopefully. karaoke you whispering the words to me.

overwhelmed. repeated thoughts of you.

i miss you too...
