WAIT! WHAT ABOUT THE BLOG NAME?
Well, the obvious guess is that I just used my name in it. Not quite. My actual name is Marja. Mariya is my name Japanese name (and perhaps Slavic). So, why Japanese? I, of course, could have used my own name, but I wanted something more symbolic. The word 'road' obviously (I hope?) tells that this blog follows the path I'm on, but where is it leading? My dream is that in a few year's time I'll be moving to Japan and that's what I am aiming towards. So, I felt that using my Japanese name in my blog name is more meaningful.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME...
Name: Marja / Mariya
Location: Turku, Finland (for few more months)
[I never really like photos of myself... 25.10.2013]
School: Even high school, along slowly preparing for university application processes
Hobbies: Music. Writing. Trying to learn Japanese and play piano. Photography. etc.
I eventually hope to have my own music business in Japan and release a book series. I have already planned out main storyline for my books, I actually started the very first version years ago. But I am too much of a perfectionist so I have started rewriting the story many, many times. And I need to plan things too much. I'm kinda hoping that writing my blogs will help me with these problems. Or at least make me more confident writer.
