The thing is I'm still getting to know me.
I have an E.T. tattoo on my *phone home* finger (yes, from the famous Steven Spielberg movie) because I always felt a bit lost in this world. I always felt a bit alien in this world but too human for any other place in the universe.
But I guess I'll start with giving you a sum up of all the places I grew up. I was born in the big city of Tokyo in 1999 and by the age of 2 and a half, I moved to sunny California to then move to Italy two years later. By the age of 9, I moved to France and lived in a little city surrounded by mountains called Grenoble. For my sophomore year, I decided to move in with my best friend and her family in California for a year to then move to Malta to finish off my last two years of high school. I then moved to the Netherlands to get a bachelor's degree in psychology only to have to quit after two months due to my mental health. Currently, I still live in the Netherlands working on my mental health, writing books, making art and working on more projects I hope to be sharing with you all soon.
By blood, I am fully Japanese but my soul feels more European than anything after spending most of my life in Europe.
Where do I call home?
I think home can be interpreted in so many ways but to me, home is planet earth. Where exactly on earth? I'm still searching for a place I can call my home.
Why did I start this blog?
I feel like this world lacks transparency and honesty so I wanted to create a safe space where we can be honest with each other in hopes to help, bring awareness to or inspire someone. I also wanted a platform in which I could write about issues that concern our planet and issues that are very dear to my heart.
My personal goals in life
I hope to reach a place in my life where I am mentally stable, can feel genuine happiness, feel comfortable in my own skin, and can help others and our beautiful planet.
Goals with this blog
I hope to be able to bring awareness of issues that can no longer be ignored.
I hope that sharing my mental health journey will help someone understand,
help someone cope or inspire someone to better care for their mind, body, and heart.
