  • - Hey, guys, how's it going?

  • My name is Micaela, and right now I'm living

  • in the small town of Aya in Miyazaki Prefecture.

  • If you haven't watched the video I uploaded on Wednesday,

  • to summarize it really quickly,

  • I'm here temporarily for one month

  • on a short work contract doing a tourism project,

  • and when that's done I'm moving back up

  • to northern Kyushu, to Fukuoka.

  • So, I'm not here forever, but to be honest,

  • after about a week, I kind of wish I was.

  • It's really, really beautiful here.

  • The air is clean, the water's beautiful,

  • the food is delicious, and it's just

  • a much more relaxed and comfortable lifestyle.

  • Since I got here, things are finally

  • starting to settle down a little bit,

  • and I finally found a day where

  • I can sit at home and I can do my laundry,

  • and finally organize my furniture

  • and kind of set up my room properly.

  • And just the other day I got this

  • giant box of stuff from Society 6,

  • and Society 6, I'm just gonna tell you really quickly,

  • so on Society 6, artists can submit their

  • artwork or their photographs

  • and customers can find designs and patterns they like

  • and have them made into bedding, into throw pillows,

  • bath mats, t-shirts, anything you want, really.

  • But, because I'm moving into a new room,

  • I actually took this opportunity to

  • get a few things for this room

  • to make it a little more personal

  • and something more suited to my style.

  • So I'm really excited, I'm really excited,

  • I'm really excited

  • to show you what I picked out.

  • First thing I got was this really sweet little photo frame

  • with the reminder, "Be as good a person

  • "as your pets believe you are."

  • Sometimes it's important to be reminded of this.

  • Oh, and this is one that I really like,

  • as a perfectionist,

  • 'cause I feel like I always hold myself back

  • when things are just not up to my own standards.

  • "Create something today, even if it sucks."

  • I also got this sweet moon clock

  • because it matches my sweater,

  • it matches my phone case,

  • it matches my computer case, my shoes.

  • I really like spacey things.

  • This carpet is a lot bigger

  • than I thought it was gonna be.

  • It's just a multi-colored zigzag carpet.

  • I'm so excited for this, you guys,

  • I'm so excited for this.

  • I got a fleece blanket.

  • I got a fleece blanket with a frickin'

  • watercolor Shiba on it.

  • It's a watercolor Shiba.

  • I also got some really cool constellation

  • and forest-themed throw pillows.

  • All right, everything's looking great.

  • It's time to decorate this room.

  • It's not every day that I have a chance

  • to decorate a Japanese-style bedroom.

  • It's a little bit different than

  • the modern-day housing that I'm used to.

  • From the walls to the flooring,

  • these rooms are extremely delicate,

  • and you have to handle them with absolute care.

  • It pretty much goes without saying that

  • heavy furniture is not so great for tatami flooring.

  • You will almost always be sleeping on a futon

  • in a tatami bedroom.

  • I'm actually pretty luck this room has

  • shelves built in to it.

  • It gives me the perfect place to place my

  • motivational word frames and clock.

  • Otherwise, I don't know what I would do.

  • The rug, bedding, and pillows

  • really help bring life to an otherwise muted color scheme.

  • The yellow tones really match the natural lighting

  • that comes through the windows, too.

  • When I packed up to move here,

  • I tried to bring as few things as possible,

  • and one of the things I'm really glad I did bring

  • is this little projector.

  • I can watch all my favorite movies and TV shows

  • without the hassle of bringing a TV along with me.

  • And I'm pretty happy with this.

  • It definitely feels more like a room than it did,

  • you know, like two hours ago.

  • You don't wanna know how I was sleeping

  • before I got my bedding.

  • It wasn't pretty.

  • If you know me, if you know my personal style,

  • I love bright colors, I love ridiculous things.

  • I mean, I'm wearing space pajamas.

  • I love just, like, bright colors,

  • loud, vibrant things.

  • So, I love all the colors.

  • I love the color themes that are going on

  • in this thing here.

  • My projector's currently showing stock images of scenery,

  • which is still pretty cool.

  • It's a pretty cool vibe.

  • Because it is a Japanese room

  • with tatami floors and the sliding doors,

  • you can't put anything on the walls.

  • You can't just stick a nail

  • into those papery doors or anything.

  • It won't hold very well.

  • So, it is really hard to decorate a room like this,

  • but I don't know, I don't know.

  • I kinda like it, I do like it.

  • It's definitely coming along and becoming more

  • of my space, you know?

  • Something that keeps me motivated,

  • makes me feel at home,

  • which is really important.

  • Inside the sliding doors, my suitcase, some clothing,

  • some supplements, and some clothes.

  • Nothing says work hard like some chocolate and some wine,

  • so that's what I'm having right now.

  • This is my microphone that I use

  • for all my voice narration.

  • It's the Yeti Blue.

  • There's a dog hair on it.

  • It's a really good mic.

  • I used to use it for singing,

  • and now I mostly use it for video narration.

  • It's a good mic.

  • So you might have noticed, there are no air conditioners.

  • Usually, Japanese houses have air-con,

  • like an air conditioner in each room,

  • and the air conditioner usually has a heating feature,

  • but there are no air conditioners in this house.

  • So, what we use for heating instead

  • is this kerosene heater.

  • Inside is a tank full of kerosene.

  • It smells like gas fumes, it's really funky.

  • And we just press a button.

  • Apparently, it's 16 degrees in this room right now,

  • but it'll heat it up to 24.

  • This is my tripod, which makes a great coat hanger.

  • What do you think, buddy, you like it?

  • Ah!

  • Hey, guys, so just reminding you,

  • I'll be holding a meetup here in Aya on Sunday,

  • and if you live in the area,

  • I'd love if you'd come hang out with me.

  • I'll be in the Honmono Center,

  • so drop by and chill, let's chill.

  • I'm gonna bring my dog, it's gonna be cool.

  • Bye!

- Hey, guys, how's it going?
