That's a ridiculous reason though. Sorry, but I really don't like people like that, it feels super shallow to me. Then again that kinda fits the personality she's been showing recently. Who cares about how a cat looks, honestly. Maybe that's working for dogs but with a cat that has it's own personality, you need to click with them. At least that's my opinion, but I also didn't grow up around bred pets, so I never understood the whole breeding thing and buying pets in general.
I agree with that. They could have tried adopting an older cat in case they can't bring it outside of Japan, knowing how strict the customs and who else is involved are with such things. What if they need to rehome Maro and Luna if it's too expensive or whatever to bring them to Canada? Anyway, if they had been turned down for adopting, they maybe would have realised that it's too late to buy a cat, since they probably already knew that they're gonna leave the country soon. Now that they're living further in the countryside, they probably have a lot of cats living around them anyway, they could have helped neighbours with their pets or - since Sharla already has been there a couple times - have volunteered at a shelter for the time being. I'm living without cats for eight years now and while I do miss having one around a lot and I know it would help me mentally, I also know that I can't have one because I'm only having one room and I'm at work the whole day. Sharla is older than me, yet she couldn't hold back on something like that, stressing her pets unnecessarily with the future move. I wouldn't want to bring any pet on a plane, not even for an hour and the flight to Canada is so long...
I think it's kind of a polite/customer-friendly thing in Japan. I see a lot of Japanese actresses getting a ton of presents from the most random presents from the most random companies that have zero to do with their work and usually they're just small gifts and not actual advertisments. For example the actress Nanao gets all those presents but she simply only posts some photos or videos on her IG Stories saying thank you, nothing more than that. It's more an advertisement from the company, not the company expecting to be advertised. SK-II is Japanese anyway, so they probably just sent something to all female Youtubers above a certain follower number, I'm guessing it didn't even cost them much.
Doesn't mean much, any person who has a bigger following got one (see Venus, Bubz,...). Everyone else made a video about it like one or two months ago already though, so I guess Taylor is late? Unless it's a different ad.
And we're back at 17 minutes... I tried to watch the whole thing but she started yet again with boring talk, so I started skipping. She brought the chicken meme back... They're heading to Ginza with the taxi... Ginza Six only starts six minutes in... Ginza six only lasts three (!) of seventeen minutes... Taylor says "the stores were quite expensive". This is Ginza, honey... Elbow cam... (rain on the taxi window) Mail opening for the last seven minutes... AGAIN: What's the point of naming this vlog "Exploring Tokyo's Newest MASSIVE Mall - Ginza Six" when it literally only makes up three minutes of the video and you get to see 90% people and nothing of the mall because it's so full?
Eh, here's a completely different way to approach this that annoys me much more: Why did Sharla BUY all her cats? She definitely got Maro from a breeder or pet shop, don't remember the details. She knew how bad Japan's pet shops are, even though they're not as bad as Americans. But well, okay, benefit of the doubt. Then she went to another pet shop and found Miko though? What? Why? I've passed by a lot of pet shops in Tokyo but when I see a sick animal there, I pity and pray for them and then move on. The prices alone make you usually think nope, thanks. And I swear Luna is from a pet shop as well, she looks too "clean" to not be bred. So why did Sharla never even once consider to adopt? I know that there aren't really animal shelters where you pick one up like over here in the West, but there are still a lot of organisations and even cat cafés who allow and help you with adopting a street cat or a cat in need of a home in general. She never thought of that? It's really, really been bothering me ever since Sharla got Luna and honestly? I condemn her for buying pets. I really do. She keeps supporting the industry to have pretty and cute pets while pretending to put herself above all that because "she knows it's bad".
The thing is, if he really had needed surgery for a broken nose (which HE mentioned first apparently, that his nose might be broken), then how should he have been able to go home? Didn't she worry about him at all? It sounded like he had the car, so he would have had to go home like that all alone. Didn't she want to check on him and just expected him to come home after a while or send her a message? I don't know, but even if I let my partner go to the hospital alone, I would still worry about them and probably stare at my phone instead of continuing my work all normally. It's not like Sharla is constantly stressed and loaded with work. I really don't get how she was more worried about Miko than her husband possibly facing surgery as well. But I guess this only shows yet again how she's really bad at empathy. Thinking of the thing with Taylor and the photographer and how she tends to not notice when someone's not feeling well or is being left out. There are people like that, totally fine, but it's because she's broadcasting it to the world without even noticing that it makes her so unsympathetic (among other things).
See, this is what I call an interesting, good length vlog. The title says what it contains and the themes sound nice! It's actually the first video in a while I watched from her. Personal: God, I miss Tokyo Dome so fucking much Gonna be back in Bunkyo in June but uuh, it's really weird to see there be no rinks in the arena part and that people are allowed to use their phones /Johnny's-fan Taylor said she had an audition this week, I wonder what's gonna come out of that.
So she said in the comments again that she's on a working holiday for the whole year. She also said they will have moved already by when the video goes online, to a new apartment? I really like the apartment they had, they even had a nice view and I don't see why she complained about the bathroom, I've seen much worse in Japan... I'm curious about how much rent it cost as well, two rooms are super rare in Tokyo. And she said they wanted to move because "they don't use the living room"?? And because they're paying so much rent for space they don't use... I get the money thing but they're two people, they're bedroom isn't exactly big but they don't use the living room. If I stayed a year in Japan with my partner, that apartment looks about right because you will end up buying a lot of souvenirs and what not. I don't really understand why they didn't move into an AirBNB or something because those come with furniture and everything. And why didn't they move to a smaller space right away? I'm just really confused "Everything I get's from fucking Daiso" Did she really say that or are my ears bad? lol
