    I thought it seemed that he had been gone much longer this time around (on what I assumed was a work trip).  I'm sad and happy for them.  I think even if she feels a little lost with what to do [about deciding if she wants to stay in Japan or not], she is still someone that I enjoy watching and sort of look up to.  Because she's worked so hard to get how far that she has gotten, and even when she's struggling to work through stuff - she's still working hard.  I think we could all tell that Tatsu being gone for long periods of time was wearing on her - hell, I'd probably feel the same.  It takes a big person to step back and look at the situation, how it's affecting them/what kind of person it's turning them into, and how they should go about fixing it.
    I admire her for saying that she wishes him the best - because he is a good photographer and deserves to be focused on his work and you know, most girls in this day and age would probably be super selfish and definitely not say the same.
    Best of luck to the both of them and I'm looking forward to her future content.

    On her new video, the thumbnail is total click bait.
    She's "starting" to get a plan in place to bring the cats home, but in fact, they are still trying to figure out what to do with them.  I stopped watching as soon she stopped talking about the cats.  I thought we were getting past all of the click-baity-ness.

    I can't watch the video because I'm at work.  So, are they still building the house in Hong Kong and then are also going to have a condo in Canada?  If so, damn.  I wish I had that kind of money.  (Not hating on them for being rich, just envious!)

    I kind of wish that the group on Youtube that called her out about the whole AP dress fiasco would make a video about this too because damn if they didn't do a good job with the AP dress video.  (I know they won't because they're mainly for lolita stuff but still it would be great.)  
    It's crap that she's acting this way, but like a lot of people on lolcow said, it's hard to call someone out for this because of the situation.  I mean, look at what happened with the person who did call her out on Twitter.  Robbie Daymond had to get involved.  
    People called her out on how she still has the GoFundMe up and is getting ready to go on vacation and she was all, "I saved up for my vacation and the things I buy!!"  Okay, Kelly, it's called being an adult and having priorities.  Ever heard of them?  What's more important?  Paying for the funeral or going on vacation?

  5. mikotanpopo added a post in a topic Norm - Tokyo Lens   

    I found out about Norm through Sharla, I think it's been 2-3 years at this point, but I just followed him on instagram because I liked his pictures.  The only video I've ever watched him in is the one where he and Sharla found those back alley vending machines.  Anyway, in regards to the comments of him being married, but seeming to be flirty with other women - I find it super weird that he doesn't wear a wedding ring.  But that's probably just so that he can get more viewers or whatnot.  But if I was his wife, it would definitely make me feel like shit and wouldn't put up with it for long.  It doesn't matter if they're married or not - if a person has great content, then they're gonna get viewers regardless.

    I agree!  I love that they can be goofy with one another.  Literally, I always smile or laugh when he goes "Babe!"
    It's been a while since I've watched Taylor's videos because life so when I saw the latest video screen cap, I had to come see because like others, I thought it was definitely gonna be clickbait.  But I'm really hoping that it's not and that she actually is getting engaged.

    This, right here.  All these pictures of Rachel lately, like whatttt?  Girl, this is not what I followed you guys for.  I followed you to see and learn things about Japan.  If I wanted to see pictures of models and whatnot, I would follow ACTUAL models.  I honestly don't understand what is going on with this, the only reason I could think that she's doing so many "photo shoots" is because someone is into her red hair.  And maybe this sounds hateful?  But I don't care anymore.  Unless you've been signed by some modeling agency, why are you doing this?
    Are there any Jvloggers worth following anymore that actually just do Japan????

    I know at one point that she was *supposed* to be going cruelty-free in regards to her make-up because I had asked her about it on Twitter once (when I still liked her).  She said that she was in the process of changing all of her make-up products over.  But when she got into the Korean products I assumed that she had stopped because most of them are not cruelty-free.

    Not sure how to embed the video - but let me spoil the click-baity title for you : Greg moved to Korea.  
    Thought it was gonna be something juicy.  Damn you Sharla.  I blame myself though.  I should know better by now.

    Wow, I cannot with that reply.  Sadly, I'm starting to turn away from her because of these things even though she was my favorite JVlogger because of her informative videos.
    Also, is anyone else getting tired of these people taking selfies like they're models or something?  I mean, I'm all for a good selfie and people feeling good about themselves, but I don't know, it's hard to explain?  I don't want this to come off as hateful or anything idk?

    Someone was tweeting about how the Jvlogging community is toxic (in regards to this whole situation with Toph which I haven’t got to look into fully) but he quoted them and went on to say that not all of the Jvloggers are toxic.

    Thanks for this!  I was just looking to see if Tofu had a thing here because now Victor is tweeting about it.

    In regards to the whole Spudgy thing, I love Simon and Martina, but it makes me emotional in a sad/mad way when they go on trips and leave him.  Especially after everything that he’s been through.  I know this shouldn’t mean that they shouldn’t travel, but damn, he had major surgery on his back!  I’m sure that they leave him in the care of someone caring, but he probably wants his family around.  I know I would.
