So... mail opening took up half the 17 minute video. And then she just showed the location of the bonenkai and her friend opening his birthday gifts. And no actual footage of the bonenkai started until 15 minutes in. Literally only two minutes of this video were at the bonenkai. I'm so done with Sharla.
I'm confused why she thought that was so complicated (obviously aside from the fact that she doesn't speak Korean, but her friend did it for her entirely anyway). Where I'm from in the U.S. it's standard for boba shops to ask for sweetness level, ice level, and what toppings you want. That's just... how boba works...
Taylor said this in the video: "I told my boyfriend I hate myself and I hate everybody and his response was 'Okay it's time for me to go to the gym and get away from you'." What the fuck? How shitty. I don't think it's ever okay for a S.O. to even joke about something like that. Like obviously she was being overdramatic but Elbow-san doesn't seem to care about her feelings even in the slightest.
Ugh yes. Her problem is she's combining being vegetarian with being super picky. Like it's totally doable to eat veg in Japan, but not when you don't even like vegetables! You can't be both. It's so irritating that she doesn't try more things.
Going off the title, I thought the cafe they went to would be a lot more interesting. It just seems like a really normal cafe? I guess it's nice to see some Korean food though. That's better than seeing things she could have shown us anywhere. Did anyone else notice that when she was getting the stamp made it seemed like she didn't know the Hangul for her own name? wtf?
Only like a minute in and Sharla (and all of the vloggers...) seriously needs to learn how to show, not tell. Seriously, please just cut out all talking ABOUT doing something and just show the doing! This is one of my biggest vlogger pet peeves. Guess it doesn't make for a 10+ minute video that you can make more money on though. Also Sharla seems so not comfortable with hanging out with Megan still. Their interactions are so awkward. Like Sharla keeps acting like herself from really really old videos where she wasn't yet comfortable in her own skin. Super weird.
New vlog: She's gonna be doing vlogmas but only every other day.She released merch.It's actually pretty cute (still not stuff I would buy though). A friend did the art for her. She added a donate button but isn't interested in patreon because she wouldn't be able to keep up with it and doesn't like keeping content only for certain people.She has a spotify account where she's been making playlists lately (username mimeiland).The playlists she showed are all kpop stuff so I don't really think she's a fake fan. Clearly cares about that stuff. CD shopping. She got kpop stuff.
No problem. I agree that this topic is super uncreative. For people who don't want to watch, I'll summarize. The video was prompted by her seeing an obnoxious tourist watching a video loudly on a train, and most of her stories are things they've seen people do and been annoyed by. Here are the things they mentioned: 1) Don't listen to videos on trains/be loud on trains 2) When staying in a residential area/an airbnb in Japan don't be hella loud (you're supposed to be quiet after 10PM) and follow other rules that are in tenancy agreement 3) Don't wear shoes inside 4) Don't do drugs in Japan (they're really strict about it there) 5) Don't take pictures of kids and don't post them on social media 6) Be really careful about revealing your location/address when posting on social media because you could be stalked/followed (I think a few vloggers have made this mistake including Mimei and Duncan on separate occasions) Here's what I don't understand. Why is this video HALF AN HOUR LONG? They only mentioned 6 rules. It was way too long and not remotely interesting enough to warrant the length. Interesting thing they mentioned in the video: they said about foreigners living in Japan who complain about it that they should just go home. Is this shade towards anyone? I feel like it's gotta be. They ALSO threw random shade at 19:45 about people lying about how long they've been living in Japan, specifically giving the example of people who say they've lived there for 10 years when they're really rounding that up like a few years. This has got to be about Sharla.
