I`ve been floundering in my own world since my little brother called me out. I know deep down inside of myself that I can sink or swim in these rapid waves called life based on my own volition.
In order to get the tide moving back into the direction of light, I`m going to steal from Diva Sista K`s weblog. I`m going to dwell on some of the things I`m thankful for in my interesting life.
*My mother who has supported me threw e-ve-ry-th-ing.
*My brother who really believes in my potential.
*My family who loves me.
*Growing up with my maternal grandmother`s unconditional love
*Always having great friends who will deal with me through my special craziness (a big shout out to my Toyama peeps & SLC Lynd House peeps!).
*My weblog which gives me a voice and empowers me
*Very good Indian food (I love Santoshi`s!) in Toyama City
*My Sunshine 88 apartment

*Doutor `s (Japan`s version of Starbucks) smoked chicken bagel sandwich
*My lovely new camera (It is 7 pixels)
*My last official Toyama JETs party on July 23rd @ BANANA`S in Uozu. I can`t wait to see everyone one more time, dance to hip-hop with Diva Melissa, and to down lots of gin & tonics in hopes of stiffling my tears.
