  • Hey guys, how’s it going?

  • My name is Micaela, and I’m back in Canada, I decided to visit my family.

  • I really needed to just come out here and relaxand I’m so glad I did.

  • There’s absolutely nothing out here, no distractions.

  • We have internet but it’s not so fast.

  • No shopping, no stores, nothing nearby, I think the closest grocery store is a 40 minute

  • drive away.

  • So, it’s pretty isolated, and I think when I was growing up—I didn’t like the isolation.

  • When I was growing up, I wanted more excitement, I wanted more stimulation, which is why I

  • decided to go to a big city.

  • And now that I’m older, now that I’ve kind of been in busy places, and seen the

  • world I really, REALLY appreciate just how secluded and quiet my original home is.

  • And so, with great pride, I’d love to show you where I’d live in Canada, because it

  • is COMPLETELY different from life in Japan, and I dunno, maybe it would be kind of interesting.

  • When my family first bought this cabin in the woods, about 20 years ago, it didn’t

  • even have toilets or running water.

  • But over the years, my Dad has worked hard to transform it into an all-season home.

  • Now that both my sister and I are older, my parents have said goodbye to the city life,

  • and have committed to living out in the wilderness instead.

  • Alright, this is the first floor

  • Right away we have a bathroom with a bath, a toilet, and washer and dryerwhich we

  • didn’t have before, so that’s a huge improvement.

  • Alright, this is the guest room, um, this is where the kids sleep when the kids come

  • out to the cabin.

  • Um yeah, this used to be me and my sister’s rooms, but we grew up and we moved out and

  • our lives changed, so this room has kind of adapted.

  • This is my old stereo from back when I was a high school studentwith skateboard stickers

  • on it because I’m ~so cool~.

  • And this, is my parent’s bedroom.

  • Every night, they go to sleep in darkness, and they wake up to this.

  • Coming down the stairs we have the living room, the dining room, and the kitchen.

  • My sister has a wheat allergy so everything in our kitchen is gluten free.

  • This is our first floor guest room, nobody is staying here currently, so it’s not made

  • up.

  • And behind me here we have some photos.

  • That’s me.

  • That’s me.

  • That’s me.

  • That’s also me.

  • And we have a patio.

  • This is the deck, this is for barbecuing, this is a big-- another dining room table

  • with six chairs, and Dad’s giant-ass barbecue.

  • Alright, dinner time.

  • Do you wanna lift the foil?

  • Ready?

  • 3, 2, 1

  • Woah!

  • Steak and potatoes!

  • Is this really happening?

  • This is real life?

  • This is real life

  • Every morning my parents get up early and make the hour-long drive into the city to

  • go to work.

  • When I was a child, this is also where I went to school, a small town called Kamloops.

  • Kamloops is a desert city, so what that means basically is that rather than being vibrant

  • and green, it’s very dusty.

  • It’s very dusty and yellow, especially up here on the mountains.

  • These here are sagebrush plants, and I don’t think you—I don’t think Tatsu’s ever

  • smelled them before.

  • Have you ever smelled a sagebrush plant?

  • Here.

  • EW! (coughs)

  • You don’t like it?

  • What?

  • You don’t like it?

  • I don’t like it.

  • Tatsu doesn't like the smell of sagebrush.

  • Growing up in Kamloops, there wasn’t really a lot to DO.

  • The streets are spacious but quieteven during the days when the Farmer’s Market

  • is happening downtown.

  • Summer and Autumn are comfortably spent down in Riverside Park

  • Now were at Riverside park, and I used to come here all the time when I was a little

  • baby.

  • And uh, it’s just really nice to here, just to see how relaxed and calm everybody is.

  • A lot of people in Japan think that I am verymy pace”, that’s what they say, I’m

  • verymy pace”, I go my own pace, but when I sit here on this bench, Tatsu’s just

  • likeoh everybody’s kinda just going their own pace here”, like, that’s a thing.

  • I guess that was just how I was raised.

  • But Kamloops is definitely not an ambitious city, and as good as it feels to come back

  • sometimes, I’m glad I left.

  • Coming back home, I was able to realise something important.

  • There is no right answer to how to live life.

  • Success to some, means a prestigious job with a high salary, to others, it can be about

  • being surrounded by what you love.

  • Living out here was my parent’s dream, and they worked their hardest to make it happen.

  • My dream lead me to the other side of the word,but it’s nice to see that MY choice

  • is not the ONLY choice.

  • And If weve only got one life, we might as well try our best to make it a damn good

  • one.

Hey guys, how’s it going?
