I haven't felt the desire to update my blog for a while now.. Well, the rundown is:
1. No longer sick! Yay!
2. The weather (aside from today) has been BEAUTIFUL!! I want another 75 degree day in February, please ♥
3. There have been a LOT of life-obstacles/problems thrown at me these last two weeks. BUT I'm doing my best to hold it together!
4. There are also a few great opportunities I've been offered! I'm very excited!
5. I am more focused than EVER (^o^)/

Check it out (I don't look half bad for being deathly sick at the time!): http://blog.auone.jp/junkoiwao/?p=0&disp=entd_p&EP=30871682

The picture is from the week before last, when I went location-shooting for the manga that I'm working on. It was cold, but really fun to do again. I just realized today that at the end of the month I will have been working for Konomi-sensei for 6 months. That's half a year towards my goal. The gears are finally starting to turn, right now! Now is the time. 2009 is definitely my year of change!

The journey to find 'me' is also progressing nicely. I feel... more at peace than I ever have. Sure, I have moments of doubt (do I EVER!), but they're something that I can accept and work through now. 頑張るわ!

As to my thoughts for the future.. I'm developing a project. It will need the help of people all around the world, eventually. But I hope that it will make a difference. More than anything, I would like to see world peace achieved in my lifetime. And to those that would answer me with "yeah, right" or "quit dreaming," I say: Instead of saying that it can't be done, why not think about how it could be done. What can you do? I believe that finding the common threads in all of humanity (cultures), through that we can unite people. For that reason, I will fight. What is it you want to fight for?

And a great inspiration for me:

What happens when a positivity and a negativity have sex and give birth?

Beautiful video! I love that scene when a bunch of people sitting on the arctic (?) ice watching fireworks....makes me think about global warming aHHHHHH. yeah ads can be inspiring.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on February 17th, 2009 12:22 pm (UTC)
I wonder if global warming is responsible for the gorgeous weather we've been having... if so, how can something so bad be so good? It's like candy bars ToT

I feel like I'm on a similar journey to find myself and focus on my dreams so reading this is inspiring!

With your strength and attitude I can picture only amazing things in your future :)

The project you're talking about sounds interesting! I want to help in anything that helps bring people together.

The world is indeed great!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on February 17th, 2009 02:57 pm (UTC)
Oooh thank you! ^___^ Hopefully some day we can work together on it!

No, I definitely think people can make differences, though I find sometimes it is the little things and little changes if we all make them that make the biggest differences.

I'm hoping this Spring to become a SPIN Farmer. :D It will not only hopefully help me make some money but will be working on a few things I construe as serious problems.

So do you think you will be available when I am in Japan in March? ^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on February 17th, 2009 02:43 pm (UTC)
When will you be around?

I love that video! It always makes me feel happy and want to get out and do something~ ♥

That video was awesome.
I like the idea of doing that and joining in a world game with a gigantic beach ball.

I would love love love to have 75 degree weather! Since I see you lived in Seattle area before? I'm sure you know what the weather here is like in Washington during February. Ah. You're SO lucky.

Congrats on half-way to achieving your goal! Another 6 months will go by fast I can tell. . The new year just started, and sometimes I still can't believe it's almost March!

Btw, thanks so much for adding me back on my new user name. ^^

I love that video! ^__^ <3 It made me giggle to see my favorite Discovery hosts singing that old campfire song (lolz Mythbusters).

In the picture you don't look deathly sick at all! :)
Chiakichiaki777 on February 17th, 2009 09:03 pm (UTC)
Well, I'm glad you're feeling better. Hope work isn't dragging you down too much.

I love how this song pops up all over the place :)

Me, I'm a bit sicky atm, but off to take whatever my new job throws at me!
Meganhk_panda on February 17th, 2009 11:13 pm (UTC)
