Another twin day in Harajuku with M. She let me borrow her Gothic Arch JSK and her white Innocent World headdress for the afternoon (I don’t know how I can ever repay her kindness ;o;). My time in Japan was almost over, and within two weeks I would be back in San Diego. It was a rather bittersweet time, as I wasn’t emotionally prepared to leave all my new friends. I don’t think I ever really understood what it meant to be happy before coming to Tokyo. It was my first time living alone and taking care of myself, and the best thing I found was to live without regrets and be yourself. It was the first time in my life that I felt unconstrained, and I wanted to go every which way all at once. I wasn’t done discovering. Returning to San Diego I knew I was losing my freedom to explore and the supportive atmosphere of ‘be yourself’, and returning to the world of ‘do as I say, because you live in my house by my rules’. There is just no happiness in being a young adult and returning to live in your strict parents home in the middle of nowhere. In San Diego, the only social culture they have is going to the beach, drinking alcohol at house parties, or sitting around watching movies or playing video games. There is no culture. I knew that as soon as I graduated from university the next summer, I had to come back.
