Life in Japan: My Work Routine Hello guys! Welcome back to the first vlog in a really long time. Quick note! You’re probably going to notice that this video may be a little bit pre-season, if you know what I mean. I switched up my Visa, started working in Tokyo, and I just got really crazy about doing my job and getting used to my new routine. So I’ve been filming a lot of vlogs, but this is my first time editing it. Who’d imagine that, huh? It is about, just a little bit after 4 o’clock so I’m going to get back to my day and let you guys go back in time and get caught up. Alright, see you there! Good morning. Oh my god. Alright, 6:45. I’ve actually been up for about almost two hours. I usually wake up before five or just before five. We have a skylight above our bed so it gives no mercy. It’s good though. It gets me up. It’s 6:45, and it’s time for Lily’s walk. So welcome to my work routine. Let’s go, Lily! Let’s go out. That’s Lily’s food. Not sponsored. Lilly wishes it was sponsored, right Lily? Like your food? Good stuff. Alright, see you. Bye! So, 9:06. We made our deadlines, we made our first batch of deadlines on Wednesday. I wake up around five, have some coffee try to clean up a bit, but clearly not so much. And then I’m usually sitting down at six, getting work done, walk Lilly, have coffee time with Boomer. And then, try to hit my first deadline and get it done by 9:00 a.m. Most of the companies that I work for, they start really working at about 9:30 or so, so around 9:30 is when I start to get emails back or I start to get feedback and then I have to start a whole other round. Even though it’s remote day, I have a meeting in the city, but I also need to go and pick up some more makeup because I ran out. I really ran out. I’m really glad I finally have my shade in Japan, it’s been like a lifesaver. Finally, a cheap brand as of, like, this year. You can get it in Harajuku, and you can also get it— I saw it in Osaka station. That’s it. That’s what we’re working with today. I’m going to pick up some more of this today as well, but anyways. We are out of time. I only now have twenty minutes before my emails are going to start running back in, so. Alright guys, made it to Harajuku, and I had a very good meeting actually. I made it from Tokyo all the way to down to Harajuku, and I’m sitting in front of Lush. I haven’t been to Lush in a while, so I’m smelling all of these smells. It is now 6 p.m. and we are off to find our shade, get back home, get back to work. Haul time! I got some color. Hello? Hello? I am sitting on Boomer’s kanji homework. Boomer’s writing “寝” (sleep) Sleep deprivation To get up. I need to get some more work done, and then eat these sushi. and then Whatever, I don’t care. It’s 7:30, I got to get to work, eat this sushi before Boomer smells fish on his desk. Oh my god. You wanna go out? You wanna go for a walk? Let’s go. Come on. Vlog-ception. Not gonna lie. Today was a hard morning for me. Thursday. 8:22, and I have eight minutes to put on my face and get back out the door. Yes, I am wearing the same blouse as yesterday—don’t judge. I only wore it for about three hours. Finally showing you what I got last night. First is the golden honey foundation. I can finally cover up my face. Uh, this is a little yellow for me. Uh oh. Definitely yellow. I have a bunch of deadlines today and I have a presentation tomorrow Today, I’m going into Tokyo and I have to give my full attention to this company today, so anything I needed to get done for Friday or anything I needed to get out to other people I had to get it done last night. Something that’s pretty hard for me now is that when I work for multiple companies I have to stay on top of all of my deadlines, and if I have to be at a different company one day, and I have to focus on their stuff, and that means, anything that comes up like if I get an email from another company on that same day then I have to either do it really early in the morning before I go out or I have to do it late that night So I can usually communicate and get things done early, even. But this week is particularly difficult because I’m trying to coordinate with a bunch of different people, and I can’t really plan for it. So it’s like, argh! It’s all fun. This foundation is a little yellow. My eye bags are a little deep. But we’re going to work on it. While I was waiting for certain pieces of a puzzle that I needed last night, I managed to finish subtitling and upload a new video. Yay! So that’s already up now for you guys. Subtitles are rough. Every now and then one of you guys will step up and even do just the English subtitles, you know the closed captions. Anytime anyone writes subtitles for me, it is a huge help,
(including the subtitles you’re reading right now, thank you!!!) and I’m trying to figure out a way to make that more consistent because I can’t put out videos as often as I want to because I spend almost like a whole day subtitling in two languages. So if anyone can help, that would be huge. Let’s see what this looks like. It’s a little red for me. Just tone that down a little bit for me. Like all I want is this nail color on my lips, and I can never seem to find the colors. For now, I’ll just keep mixing and matching until I go back to the States in two weeks and pick up my real shade. Alright. It’s time to go! Good morning, I just got off the train, and I’m walking but I just realized I uploaded my video and there is a problem with the subtitles I’ve been getting a lot of comments saying that there’s a huge problem with the subtitles and the English subtitles aren’t showing, even though I literally woke up at 4 a.m. to write them and I want to cry The file is on the computer at home, so I can’t upload them forever The video’s just going to sit there with no subtitles. I’m dying. Okay, see you guys at lunch. Lunch break is over. It is 12:03. It is Saturday, and I managed to somehow skip a day in what is supposed to be a vlog about my work routine. Yesterday was a wash. I woke up early—way too early, in fact. This is not a normal week. Normally, I do work a lot, but I had to stay up almost all night and then definitely be awake and working at about 3 a.m. for the last two days and that’s not normal. and I didn’t want you guys to think that was normal. And to be honest, I most definitely crashed. Basically, I had a huge presentation on Friday. I did a quick happy hour, but I came right home basically because there is a huge typhoon. Boomer’s work got canceled. Trains are down. We are going to shutter up and start the day. There was a point here, sorry. I went a little crazy yesterday, my brain’s been a little bit off. Oh, by the way. A girl at work yesterday complimented my lipstick. She said I was so happy. That actually made my day. Do you like my glasses by the way? I feel like I’m like that girl in Matilda. What’s her name? Lavender? I feel like I look like Lavender right now. It’s about noon. We’re going to get some supplies, shut down the storm doors, and wait out the typhoon. The last four rices. Is it rouge? Where’s the apple juice? There isn’t any. What are you getting? We got the shutter down. We’re safe. There’s a lot. Let’s eat. This is so cute. What is this? Do you see Tokyo Tower back there? Yeah, I do. It’s Tokyo Tower. Oh my god, it’s Tokyo Tower. Good morning, everyone. I made it to Shinjuku. Today I am working remotely from one of my favorite cafes called Caffice. You can’t see it up there but it’s in this Kurumu, cute place. Had a bit of a hiccup this morning. Someone left their cellphone under my butt. Their Samsung Galaxy was sitting under my butt on the train. I was just in the middle of running down the door and the train car number that I was sitting in so I could turn it in to lost and found when it started ringing. So it was like an impromptu Japanese quiz. And being that I haven’t had coffee yet, I couldn’t—I was like train, phone, train, phone. I couldn’t get the words out of my mouth on the phone with this total stranger. About to turn it in to the lost and found, and now I’m ready to get back to work. Today is a remote day for me, so I’m mostly going to be here at my favorite place. It’s called Caffice. It’s like a cafe office. And I’m going to get some work done. Made a quick pitstop to pick up my contacts. And now I’m going to go and find my friend, actually. Alright, let’s get you back before— What time is it anyways? Lunch is over. Time to say bye to Sam. But thank you for coming. Alright guys, time to say goodbye to the vlog—that’s you guys. It’s time for me to get back to work, so I’ll see you guys in the next vlog.
