When you start your life over in another country, you have to find ways to keep yourself saying and comfortable. Just because I live in Japan doesn't mean I forgot how I was raised and where it came from. You have to make this your home and build a lifestyle for yourself. Your family is miles away, and so you need to find a balance and a way of life that suits you if you plan on living in another country forever. But that doesn't mean I have no Japanese friends. Good morning, everyone. Excuse my red nose. It is allergy season. Flowers are in bloom. And if you have really bad allergies in Japan, this is the season. So I am sorry for my red. No say I'm going out with my friends to the new Starbucks reserve that opened in Naka Mega Dough. And then we're going to go shopping because in preparing for L. A. Going to L. A. In like, a couple weeks and I want to get some clothes for Instagram and you know photos Because you know, my boyfriend is a photographer's, though. I need something. Yeah, so I'm going to meet my friend Mariana. Gretchen and Kata Kata is from Russia Marianas from England, but she is also part Russian, and Gretchen is from America. I have gotten this question so often like, Why don't you hang out with Japanese people? Honestly, I invited some Japanese people out today and they couldn't come. But it's not really surprising because a lot of Japanese people, either a, don't want to be on camera or be they just are way too busy. Today's Monday A lot of foreigners have days off that are like during the week or something like that. But most jobs in Japan for Japanese people, their weekends are Saturday, Sunday, my days off our Sunday and Monday, and I know a lot of people that have Mondays off. A lot of people have Tuesdays off, and because of that because of the work culture, because I feel like a lot of my Japanese friends work so hard. They work from, like, nine toe like 10 almost every day, or they have other things going on family things. It's just really hard to make plans with someone that's Japanese. And it's not that I don't have Japanese friends. It's that they just are way too busy and I understand that, and I try to invite them and hang out with them as much as possible. But I also want to respect their privacy, even like in Japan. In general, when I'm blogging like this, a lot of people just don't want toe be seen on camera. You don't see any Japanese person carrying around a camera or blogging or anything like that. If you notice on some dating APS or like Instagram, a lot of Japanese people don't show their faces. It's just privacy reasons. And the fact that my friends are so incredibly busy and you have to like plan way in advance is the reason why I don't always hang out with Japanese people. This is my breakfast today, so I have some nut butter, cinnamon and banana, and then I have this little yogurt, tiny yogurt parfaits, many one and yeah, and this is my coffee and I need to put more coffee. E. I love these things. So much time to get going its rating and it's cold and I'm still going out A A. Since a lot of natives are from and live in Japan, family obligations and work culture for them is a big deal. Ah, lot of foreigners tend to gravitate towards each other because a, it's a release of stress. And B if the people you meet who are English speakers or from where you live, become more like your family. So Marianna asked somebody where it was when they said that way, way don't know how far to go that way. Should we go straight? Let's go straight. I don't think we're gonna be able to get in. This looks so busy is at the ticket. This is the ticket booth or whatever. Starbucks reserve was almost a three hour wait this day. So we found a new cafe that I've never been to called Mochis Cafe. The place was covered in pastels and great for a girl's day out. All right, so we're at what this place holding in that case because it was excited to come here, star but preserved was three or four hour wait in a queue pancake shop and have lunch is here. Todo So I was talking about this morning about how, like everyone commenting, why do you always hang out with four people? Why do you not just hang out with Japanese people Day? And I'm just like I do have Japanese friends. But the thing is, they're not available. Is often is like you guys or something because we have, like, similar jobs. I think many Japanese people they're always like, really can. I don't want exactly. They don't want to be on my camera. It's not like a hate Japanese. Well, like I love Japan. I brought everybody give today thank you for inviting me here. Having me, it's a really good check conditioner. It smells you limiting yourself toe only Japanese people. If you live in a foreign country verse, traveling or staying for a short time is not always a good thing. Need others from both Japan and around the world and learn about them. Open your mind a little bit wider, so cute like it's very aesthetically pleasing. Lots of pink and yet very set up photos, and we're like all here together with cameras, video cameras and trying to capture the moment. Hang out with others that you want to hang out with. Don't feel ashamed about who you spend your time with when you live here. Ultimately, it's your life and your decision. I love my Japanese friends, but they aren't always available. And when I do hang out with them, I just prefer not to block it. What you see on camera isn't what I do every day. So cool. Look at this bathroom. You guys, I love it. I'm going to be completely honest if you choose to live anywhere where you would love to hang out with more Japanese people all the time and enjoy Japan to the fullest. I'll tell you my truth and my opinion do not move to Tokyo. As soon as I left, I felt it to be a busier place. Ah, lot of people are short on time. When I lived in Nagoya, however, I had so many Japanese friends and I loved it. I felt like I was really in Japan. Ah, lot of the locals had more time on their hands compared to the people of Tokyo. And truly I'm kind of sad that I left it behind. How many stops? Okay, honestly, I love my creative friends. We see the world a little differently. I also love meeting new people. And just because I'm in Japan doesn't mean I need to stop seeing them too. Oh, Japanese toilets. Okay, I guess. I guess i'll go. I usually don't go for these ones, but, you know, it's my only choice. Do people Not enough time. They need, like a fake Shibly a crossing for pictures. Okay, This is where all the umbrellas come in, where everybody is hitting each other in the eyes and were often forever 21. I was here the other day and I didn't find too many things, but who knows? Maybe it changed in a couple. That's really cute. No, I just want to get you How many times you say this is cute? Cute. Cute. This is cute. You work with work, right? So cute. See anything you like? Oh, yeah. I don't get it to tell. Your whole entire life is becoming spotting. This is too trendy. This is one of a lot for long. I feel like it would weigh E. So I didn't have much luck in here, So we're gonna head agent and so pretty. $30. 3000 yen. So Teoh E. Maybe I missed something. I don't know, Having a hard time today. 18th. I'm going on the 18. See my boyfriend for the first time ever. She's from L. A. So she was mentoring me today. Oliver and Morella's air just like hitting each other in the face like it's insane. Cameras option. So what else did you do today? I think like how, Come out. I'll show you what I got for forever. 21. I have completely different lipstick on because couldn't find my other one. But I was going to try on some clothes for L. A. And I just didn't have the energy because I have to finish a video for Takahama. So I'm gonna just do some editing, and I just only all I had for dinner. I forgot to film it, but I had for dinner was left over grilled chicken and some broccoli and some potatoes. I didn't really cook anything, so yeah, I just today was just really high stress. And, um, I only have one more day where I'm going to go out with some friends and maybe take some photos and just enjoy the day. Don't know like Tokyo is is very congested. Every it was just a lot, but it's not a big deal like I like I said before, I love hanging out with my friends who understand what I'm doing, like my creative side. And they understand that I have, you know, videos to make. And like I said before, hanging out with foreigners is not a bad thing. Well, not every person in that group today was from America. I love meeting new people and hang out with the people. That's just who I am. Japanese people are very busy and work. Life is very tough and harsh, and I feel like compared to their jobs, our jobs are a little bit more relaxed, I think, and more foreign based. And this is very different anyway, Um, yes, I do agree. I do need to hang out with more Japanese people, but I also feel like you should limit yourself the just Japanese people. If you're living in another country, you should find your community to feel, you know, a part of something. And a part of you should feel like you're a part of a community as well, but also try to immerse yourself in another culture and language. So those both of them those things are very important when people say, like you should only hang out with Japanese people Or you should Onley immerse yourself in culture and only speak Japanese and Onley do this. I don't think that's a break. And that's just my opinion. Leave a comment down below what you guys think. And yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and edit and Sue Godo. Apple Salgado is in our more prefecture, and I used to live there. To go to Ben is like a different dialect and Japanese. Anyway, as I mentioned, the Japanese apples have like no skin when they're like cut up. And the reason being is like Japanese people don't like to eat the skin on fruit. But I feel like that's so bad because all the nutrition is in the skin. I have some peach yogurt. I was, but I don't know why I was expecting it to be like a pink color, but it's not human. I was gonna put these apples on talk as I lesson plan.
