Autumn vignettes

So I watched Mistress America, the new Greta Gerwig film and this one quote really blew me away because it’s kinda, sorta, exactly how I feel at this stage:

“I think I’m sick, and I don’t know if my ailment has a name. I just am in love with everything, but can’t figure out how to make myself work in the world.”

Apparently good things take time. My vegan cheesecakes take 6 hours to set and getting to Tokyo disneyland from my house takes about 8. So, I guess that’s a fair statement. But, how long is it going to take for the right person to stumble upon my blog and make me famous? One year of blogging! One year! And does anyone (other than my mom or sister) actually read this? Sorry for the pessimism/melodramatics, I blame the weather. Actually, autumn is my favourite season and it’s especially nice here with the surrounding mountains but there’s something about fall which makes me ponder, apart from the freezing cold and the knee deep snow about to hit my village, “what’s next?”


  1. I just started following your blog. Everybody has to be patient in life,and one year will be lost in seconds,believe me! Keep on good working and love that you’re vegan!!! 😀


    1. Thank you for your sweet reply! Guess I’m just having one of those days :P Also, not entirely vegan…trying my absolute best to be but it’s hard when living in Japan/travelling. <3


    1. You sold me on gooseberries! Interesting fact: gooz means fart in Persian! So when my family migrated to NZ and heard of gooseberries for the first time we were sooo shocked! hehe but yes, when I finish up in Japan and come back to NZ I’ll head over to yours ;) We’re practically neighbours huh!


      1. I’ve got so many of the beauties that a by-product of eating them all could definitely be prolonged farting. I love ’em in salads and they taste so much better when they’re cold. Gooseberry jam could be a makin in my house soon :) I’ll save you a jar for when you get here!
