      We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another, and no sunrise finds us where left by sunset. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of that tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind to be scattered.

— Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

When I was in kindergarten, there was a new girl named Mia who came from Japan, I believe, and I was assigned to be her helper because she couldn’t speak English. Over the few months we spent together, we became really close, and we had flashcards with the characters for an English word, and we could figure out what she was trying to tell us with those. I actually taught her quite a few different sentences and sayings in English after a while. I remember that she would get nosebleeds often, and each time I would escort her to the nurse, they would tell me to leave but she would make me stay with her. At our school we had a field day and me and her were never apart from each other the whole time. (Shown above) After a while, she had to move away with her family, and I never saw her again. I’ve really wanted to know how she’s changed for a very long time now. I know this is a long shot, but I’ve been wanting to talk to her again over some social network because I’ve missed her for a really long time, and I was hoping some of you guys would reblog for me. I can’t remember her last name.

I live in Japan.. so I hope this is a step closer~! &lt;3 諦めないで!Don&#8217;t give up.

That awkward moment when you don&#8217;t even understand your own language.

Wait.
That&#8217;s every moment in Japan.

VIDEO UPDATE: some of the other applicants’ videos have been featured on the news, radio, and very influential blogs in their home countries. One video has over 21,000 views now, another is over 10,000. It’s a marketing position, so the best networkers definitely deserve it.  However, there’s realistically no way I can generate that sort of traffic and attention to myself. I don’t know exactly how important views and likes really are, but I know that for the next stage, voting in very important. I don’t know if I will be through to the next stage and eligible to be voted for, but if I am, it doesn’t seem likely that I will win, realistically looking at the numbers. Unless some crazy famous person promoted me, it seems that I’ve hit my popularity limit. haha I’m amazed I got this many views as it is. It isn’t over yet… more information will be coming on the 12th, when country/regional finalists are announced. This was always a longshot, but a so far it’s been a fun experience, albeit a little stressful. So this will probably be the last time I link my video on Tumblr. I don’t want to wear out my welcome haha. If you’d like to watch my video and share it around, feature it on your YouTube channel, feel free. THANK YOU for everything my lovelies.  Don’t Forget To Be Awesome.
