that's a quote my stepdad always used to say to me. never really thought much of it until today. i was walking home after taking the subway after 4 hours of dance classes. it was raining. very cold. slightly windy. and my umbrella was doing that thing where it was protecting my face, but for some reason my shoes were still soaked. i was wearing generic Uggs, so waterproof was just out of the question. and i couldn't tell if my socks were just sweaty from dance class or that the rain had just seeped in. i stopped by a 7-11 to pick up "dinner" even though i really wanted the ramen place across the street, but since i wasn't going to be paid again until the 8th of next month, i figured a pork bun and cup-o-noodles would suffice. but i was still unbelievably in a good mood. i had my iPod in my ear and i was walking like i had somewhere to be with a 'lil kick in my step.

and it was all cause i was in tokyo working towards my dreams and doing something everyday that i loved...

sounds cliche, i know. but that was the plain honest truth. back home i could barely get out of bed for a 9am class and drive 15 minutes to class or walk down the hill when i was dorming. and now i have to get up early everyday, have 10 hour days, no car, no ride, no parents to ask money from cause i feel like sushi instead of mcdonalds that day. i could barely make it to work on time when i was a manager at Guess even though i lived an exit away. i just wasn't motivated. yet, now i'm on the grind and STILL happy to do it.

you can't believe how tired i am everyday and how much all these strenuous activities have me soaking in the tub almost every night trying to alleviate the pain, but i'm STILL HAPPY. i know this is my job right now, but it's not a job when you're enjoying what you do. i thought these two months of training would take forever, but i've already reached the half way point and i can remember arriving and settling into my new surroundings like it was yesterday.

i guess the lesson for the day is don't settle. you CAN work and actually enjoy it. given, not everyone is lucky to have that opportunity, but my advice is TRY to get to that point in your life. work to get to that point in your life. cause from now on that's what i'm gonna do. i know this opportunity won't last forever, but now that i know what it feels like, i know what i want in life. hopefully you guys find that too.

til next time...

just wanna thank pudgekills for my header. =)

now i'm officially cool. ...i think. =P


konichiwa! ... as you can see from the previous video entry, i'm back in tokyo. it's only been a week and it's all ready been a crucial test on the abilities of my mind, body & spirit. the first couple of days, i actually cried cause i missed my family so much. i would cry like a goober every time i read one of my parents emails. but then i started getting busier and into the groove of things and i'm pretty much getting the hang of tokyo life. it's fast paced and continuously busy. i love it. my kind city.

their subway system is efficient since i don't have a car. (makes me miss my bucket-ass honda back home. haha.) but the walking everywhere is killing me. haha. it doesn't help i'm dancing 4/7 days a week and at training at the gym 3/7 days a week, but i can't wait to be super fit by the time i head back to cali.

i need to learn a japanese song. so if you have any suggestions, please leave me a comment cause i don't even know where to begin looking for a good japanese song. =) thanks! well i'm gonna go lie down now and relax until my next dance class. i'll blog again soon...

love, MEESH


MUCH LOVE TO OUR IFP FAM. visit them at and see what the hype's all about it. miss you guys!! good times. good times.

So I went to L.A. about two weekends ago just so I could hang out and kick it with some of my Socal friends before I headed to JAPAN. (Sorry to those I wasn't able to see.) I really wish I had more time there, but it was a fun trip for the amount of time I had. Just wanna blog to thank Erikaboo & the rest of the gals for letting me ride with em, Marc & DJ Zeb for kickin' it and letting me crash, Drewbyrd & DJ Haylow for coming out & DJ Mike Danger for everything else. I ended up going to Cabana club and saw a bunch of friends so it was a relaxing and let loose weekend before I got back to my crazy work schedule in Tokyo. That's all for now... just saying THANKS AGAIN to my SoCal-ers who always take care of me. Til next time...

THE GIRLS. (dom, me, mel, tricialove & erikaboo.)
