Welcome 2007♪ あけましておめでとう!!  
Goodbye to the old, hello to the new!! Goodbye 2006, one of the most interesting years of my life, in a way. I think that 2006 brought the most changes to my little personal world, and finally, I started coming into whom I really I am. I dedicate this to continuing the journey to self-awareness and to my dream!! =^__^= I hope that many of my friends can also continue their journey to their dreams☆★

For the New Years, I went to Shibuya with some friends (click for some video I took), the same as I did last year, and celebrated with the people gathered in one of the busiest intersections in the world, and the most famous meeting place in all of Japan-- Hachiko square. Last year there was a countdown, but strangely this year, there wasn't any.... but oh man was it crowded!! That's maybe the only time that I've been afraid of getting something stolen the whole time I've lived here (so many foreigners!! lol). But it was nice!! Afterwards, we karaoked until the morning hours. It was so cold that I didn't want to go to a temple, but instead slept at home until about 3pm. ^_^;; But... HAPPY NEW YEARS!!

So, to everyone: What is your New Years Resolution? あなたの今年の抱負は何ですか?

My resolutions are several:
~ I resolve to fix any rifts in friendships that are important to me.
~ I resolve to publish a manga in Japan and support myself entirely within an artistic field this year.
~ I resolve to take another step towards becoming fluent in Japanese.
~ I resolve to find something that has been missing in my life for a long time - romance. (Whatever the outcome)
~ I resolve to become the kind of person that I wish in my heart to be. =^__^=
~ I resolve to become closer to my family, especially my real sister.
~ I resolve to visit at least 2 countries that I have never been to before.

And general good wishes. Here's to the passing of 2006, which was one of the happiest, and yet one of the saddest years of my life in many ways, and here's to 2007, where I hope to be able to continue to feel such strong emotions about my life, to gain inspiration from others and to in turn inspire others.


PS: Congratulations to my Mom and Ken for their marriage a few days ago. =^__^=

Happy New Year, Hi-chan!

Hey, I don't know if you know this or would be interested or what, but apparently, Morning magazine's doing an international manga contest...http://www.comipress.com/news/2006/12/22/1199 I know that since you're in Japan, you could do another Japanese contest anyway, but well, since it's specifically open to Americans and others... X3

Sounds like you enjoyed your New Year *^-^*

We don't really make New Year's resolutions so I didn't make one. I guess I want to try to change myself this year. I know that will take way more than one year though and it won't be easy. I still need to try, ne?

I wish you good luck with your New Year's resolutions. Do your best with them, okay! ^^
