‘Be OK’ – Ingrid Michaelson

I can’t believe that I haven’t blogged since November… time flies! I have absolutely no idea what has happened between then and now except that I’ve been spending a lot of time with family and friends before my big move.

When I first decided to move to Japan, it was because I was craving time with my family in Japan, and didn’t think at all about everything that I would have to change and leave behind. As time has passed, my thoughts and feelings about the move have both solidified and dissolved. I”m still very excited about this new portion of my life, but I am very sad to leave everything that I have known for the past 7.5 years. I almost feel like I’m 18, graduating from high school, and starting college all over again.

Making a move like this definitely  makes you realize a lot about yourself, and is almost a journey in itself. It has become quite apparent to me who and what is the most important to me at this time in my life. I still have no idea what I want to be “when I grow up” but I have complete and total trust that it will all work itself out.

It’s the journey, not the destination – and so far, this journey has been fantastic.

About leemodesigns

I have been folding Origami for over 20 years - being raised in both Japan and Hawai'i has shaped and formed who I am today. Origami has been a kind of relaxation for me my entire life, and only recently did I discover that I enjoyed wearing my work rather than simply displaying it! Although folding paper is how I originally started LeeMo, my personal exploration of digital fabrication has expanded the way that I approach modular origami. Folding will always be a passion for me, but I never want to forget how it all started: a little girl and a package of paper.
