  • Hey guys

  • So my friend Taylor recently did a 50 Things About Me video

  • and I thought it was about time I did one

  • because you guys don't really know anything about me

  • So yeah! Let's do it!

  • I am Canadian! I am from Victoria, BC

  • It is a town on the west coast

  • It's on an island, it's a really beautiful place

  • I have one sister! She is younger than me

  • And we have the exact same voice

  • So when we answer the phone our friends will just assume that it's the person they want to talk to

  • and just start talking to us

  • The only things I like to drink are water, tea and juice

  • and sometimes hot chocolate

  • I don't really like carbonated drinks or drinks with sugar in them

  • So I really don't like soda

  • I don't drink much alcohol and I don't really like coffee

  • But I am a big tea drinker, I am such a tea addict

  • My favourite ice cream flavour is cotton candy

  • The only 2 types of music that I listen to regularly are metal and k-pop

  • My favourite number is 4

  • But in Japan 4 represents death so it's kind of awkward

  • Tofu and broccoli are two of my top favourite foods

  • I don't like any hard candies, including lollipops

  • I don't know why, I've never liked them

  • I have a skin disorder called Vitiligo

  • Which means my skin loses patches of pigment in random areas all over my body

  • You guys commented once, you saw it on my hand

  • I don't know if you can tell here, but see how it's whiter than the rest of my hand?

  • I'm lucky because I'm really pale to start with, so you can't really notice it

  • But I also have a big patch around my eye here

  • So when I'm not wearing makeup you can kind of see that

  • If I don't get a tan it's not really that noticeable so I don't mind it

  • But I do try to avoid getting a tan

  • because it becomes really obvious when the rest of my skin is a darker colour

  • I'm not a big TV watcher

  • But the only shows that I really enjoy watching are ones that are about ghosts or aliens

  • One of my favourite movies is called The Game

  • I recommend watching it if you haven't seen it yet

  • I used to be horribly addicted to Neopets

  • When I say horribly I mean from the moment I woke up until I went to sleep I would play Neopets

  • I had a guild and I had all the rare items

  • I kicked ass at that game

  • And to be honest I kinda miss it

  • I am a chapstick addict

  • I probably own about 30 of them

  • If I go out and I realize that I forgot to bring my chapstick with me

  • I will buy a new one

  • My favourite pokemon is Paras because he has the cutest voice ever

  • 90% of my wardrobe is either black, white or grey

  • And the other 10% is crazy bright colours or pastels

  • I am 165cm tall

  • I didn't have a cell phone all through high school

  • and the first time I got one I was 19 years old

  • That was like my 3rd year in university

  • I can't sleep unless my room is pitch black

  • And it bothers me so much when people put on music when they go to sleep

  • I would sleep over at my friend's house and they would put on music when it was time for bed

  • And I could not sleep because I'll focus on the music

  • OMG it drives me insane

  • I love horror movies

  • 95% of the movies I watch are horror movies

  • I've probably seen every horror movie that was ever made, pretty much

  • And I still haven't found any that I really enjoy, they're never scary enough

  • Roller coasters scare the hell out of me and I hate them

  • I don't script any of my videos (except for this one)

  • Because there was no way that I could remember 50 things

  • But I absolutely hate writing so I will avoid it at all costs

  • I used to have my nose, my lip, and my tragus pierced

  • But I took them out when I came to Japan because people aren't very accepting of piercings here

  • And I probably wouldn't have been able to get any work

  • I used to love the Ninja Turtles when I was little (and I still do)

  • My favourite was Raphael and I was pretty much in love with him

  • I honestly have no plans for the future

  • The only thing that I know is that I want a house with at least 4 cats in it

  • I was in university for about 10 years. 10 YEARS guys.

  • I completed 2 degrees and another tourism program

  • I just couldn't decide what I wanted to do

  • I would finish a program and then be like "Eh. I don't really wanna work in a job related to this"

  • And then I would start something else, and something else

  • And yeah it added up to about 10 years

  • And I'm really excited to be all finished with it now

  • because I hate studying in school, I can't stand it

  • My birthday is April 23rd I'm a taurus

  • Unlike my profile on Famous Birthdays says, I am not 30 I am still 29

  • I played jazz saxophone for 5 years

  • I played alto and I also played baritone

  • and it was my favourite thing ever!

  • But when I left high school I didn't really have any opportunity to play it anymore

  • So I stopped... and I really miss it

  • I used to have platinum blonde hair, and I really loved it

  • And I always think about dying it again

  • But the upkeep is pretty intense so I'm not sure if I ever will

  • I love cleaning! Vacuuming and organising...

  • Honestly everything except for doing the dishes

  • I think it's gross, I don't like touching them

  • So if you come to my house you'll probably notice that the dishes are never washed

  • I kinda just leave them there until I have no dishes left and then I'll do them

  • Because I hate getting my hands dirty

  • I was a carpenter for about ten years in Canada

  • It's probably the worst job for me

  • Because every time I would get something on my hands, I would have to go wash them

  • and the person that I worked with it would drive him insane

  • But I just hate the feeling of having dirty hands

  • I'm addicted to an app called Line Play

  • And I'm not even addicted to the main part of it

  • I'm addicted to the little bonus game called Fruit Monsters

  • If any of you have played it you probably know how addictive it is

  • I'm on level 250 or something

  • and it's getting kinda crazy, I play it every night before I go to bed

  • I hate hot weather

  • The summer in Japan drives me crazy

  • I just wanna stay inside and never leave my house

  • I have horrible eyesight and I own several pairs of glasses

  • But I never wear them because I don't like how they look

  • The only countries I have visited are America, Cuba, Germany, Korea and Japan

  • and I would like to visit lots more because I love travelling

  • I absolutely hate the smell of perfumes

  • Unless they are cotton candy or fruit scented

  • My favourite computer game is Commander Keen

  • I don't know if anyone else out there knows it

  • But I used to play it so much that I could get through the first level with my eyes closed

  • My favourite holiday is Halloween because I love dressing up

  • I absolutely love hiking and walking

  • I could walk all day long and not get tired, I think it's really fun

  • and that's where I get most of my exercise

  • I read every single one of my comments on YouTube probably about 10 times each

  • because the comment system sucks

  • and even when you click "Newest Comments" it doesn't show you the newest comments

  • and I'm always coming back to check them, even comments on old videos

  • So rest assured, I read every single one of your comments

  • I don't have time to reply to all of them but I am definitely reading them

  • And I appreciate every single one of them, so thanks guys

  • My favourite childhood movies are The Neverending Story and Labyrinth

  • My favourite part about myself is my nails

  • They have always been really long and easy to grow and they're really strong

  • and the shape is always nice

  • I always have them painted

  • I didn't have nail polish on my nails for about a whole week this year

  • And I think that was the first time in 5 years that I've done that

  • and it felt weird. I just love having my nails painted

  • I love Japanese sports cars

  • My favourites are Nissan Skyline R-32 and 34, Silvia S15 and Toyota Supra

  • I used to be obsessed with wrestling

  • My favourite wrestlers were Hulk Hogan (when he was called that)

  • and more recently, The Rock

  • I love staying inside

  • I would much rather spend the day inside playing video games and watching a movie

  • than going out and doing anything

  • I can speak a little Chinese

  • Even though there is a cat bus in Totoro, my favourite Ghibli movie is Princess Mononoke

  • One of my goals while living in Japan that I haven't completed yet is learning how to play tsugaru shamisen

  • My favourite YouTubers to watch are PDR-san and Abroad in Japan

  • because I love their sense of humour

  • I hate white sugar and I don't put it on anything

  • If I want to sweeten something I will always use honey

  • I absolutely hate flying in airplanes

  • That's horrible for me because I fly quite often for work and for travel because I love travelling

  • But yeah, I somehow get through it

  • I don't let it hold me back from going places, because that would suck

  • But I'm so terrified and I think I'm going to die every time

  • All right guys! That was 50 things about me.

  • Did you learn something new?

  • I would also like to learn something about you guys

  • In the comments, tell me one thing about yourselves

  • It can be anything you like, just one interesting fact that you would like me to know

  • Thanks for watching guys, and I'll see you soon! Bye!

Hey guys
