Day 98 of RTW trip: Tokyo, Japan
Anyone who knows me on a personal level knows I am actually a rockstar (true story: I moved to LA when I was 17 to become the next Britney Spears before moving to NYC at age 20 to start a band).🎙
Since being on the road, I have missed singing so much, but luckily I’m in Japan, aka the originator of karaoke. I was walking around a fish market last week and suddenly felt panicky. I have been getting much better at listening to myself and detecting when a panic attack may be coming on, and I knew that’s what this moment was. I started thinking, “I need a release,” and my mind went straight to singing. Only problem is, it was 3pm on a Monday, so where would be open?
Well, low and behold, I found a hidden little spot in Ginza and rented an entire room for myself with unlimited drinks by the hour ($9/hour) thinking one hour would be enough. Long story short, I stayed for four🤣. The staff 100% thought I was a lunatic.🤪
Taking the moment to do something that felt foolish but knowingly would make me feel better is one of the best decisions I have made during my time in Tokyo. And Monday afternoon karaoke may be a ritual I take back to the states with me😎. - 7 minutes ago
