  • episode nine.

  • Where's my breakfast?

  • I was like, thank you next.

  • I finished and you like, can you get, thank you.

  • I have half my makeup on.

  • I'm going to finish that.

  • I honestly, like, I wasn't sure if I was gonna vlog today, but I do want to, because I postponed my trip to America since I have pneumonia.

  • So you probably hear me coughing a lot.

  • So today, the idea is to just like clean a little bit packed.

  • I don't know how much I'm going to do today.

  • I'm just gonna do a little bit today because I don't want to push myself too much.

  • I'm still feeling a little bit of pain in my right lung, which is why I ended up going to the er on sunday.

  • I woke up and I woke up at two a.m.

  • In so much pain.

  • I couldn't lay down.

  • I couldn't turn to my side, I couldn't do pretty much anything and I felt nauseous.

  • I felt sick from the pain and I just couldn't go back to sleep.

  • And I was like, I really need to go to the hospital.

  • Like, this is not, this is not normal.

  • We still have some pain, but it's very, very light, like there's not much going on there.

  • So my boyfriend would stay waiting for me and stayed on the phone with me and translated for me because I was so exhausted.

  • Like it was so hard to explain my feelings and my symptoms and I didn't know what was going on or like what I needed to know.

  • I wanted to know every little thing and that's why I wish that my japanese was like, at advanced level.

  • But, but it's not so I really, really appreciate him talking to the nurse and getting all the information that I need pneumonia.

  • Really, really sucks.

  • It makes you super tired.

  • It's really weird.

  • Like, my body, like this side of my body is like bruised.

  • There's like, it's all blue.

  • It's almost like I got, like, hit by something, but I feel fine.

  • So how's your pain?

  • It's still kind of there, but it's not as bad as before.

  • But it still feels really weird.

  • Like when I walk around, it feels like my lung is like gonna fall off of my body.

  • It's like, really weird.

  • It's like if I move, it feels like it's moving around.

  • It's really weird.

  • I think it's just healing.

  • I don't think it's anything to be worried about since my X rays were fine.

  • Yeah.

  • You're extremely ready was fine.

  • And you pay is, you know, do you think I should still go to the hospital if I'm feeling okay.

  • I think it has to go on Wednesday.

  • You think so, just in case, you know, before you, okay?

  • So I didn't put any lipstick on, but that's fine.

  • It feels so much better today.

  • Oh my God.

  • Like my energy is coming back.

  • I'm going to go to the lawson down the street because where's my keys?

  • Mhm Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • I've literally been so hungry in the past couple of days because I haven't been eating, I just want to eat everything.

  • But this is Carnegie kun.

  • It's my favorite chicken to get.

  • These are the antibiotics.

  • I just finished my one round of antibiotics and they gave me this pain medication.

  • So I have to take one of these and some Tylenol.

  • So this is what it looks like an antibiotic looks like in Japan.

  • So I'm gonna go ahead and take that.

  • Just one.

  • Okay.

  • Okay.

  • Thank you.

  • Work your magic man.

  • Take me home.

  • Okay.

  • So I disappeared for a long time because a, I was talking to my boyfriend for a very, very long time and which is awesome.

  • But like I have so much stuff to do, I'm going to kind of explain to you guys what I've been doing this week, basically.

  • I went to go see some lights with some friends the other day.

  • You got to teach my followers, teach them about cameras.

  • That's not how you teach them.

  • So, um, we're taking, well, he's taking pictures.

  • Were not taking pictures were just in them and she's, she's a lot more experience than me.

  • I just make really weird faces and hope that they come out.

  • Okay.

  • The lights are beautiful in Japan I think as if you're ever here in, if you're ever here during the holidays or before.

  • The holidays.

  • There is a little place with flowers and a mount fuji and um, I discovered some places around shinjuku station that I've never seen before.

  • So.

  • Oh my God, this is so cute!

  • Yeah, I want to eat here.

  • Cute look at this.

  • That was fun.

  • I love exploring.

  • There's so many little things that you can find throughout Tokyo that you just don't know exist until you really, really look and you really explore and I loved doing that.

  • So Tuesday was the day I started to feel sick but I needed to go to the doctors anyway this thursday to get some more asthma medication.

  • So I didn't think much of it.

  • An assistant at work was leaving soon.

  • So I wanted to write her a nice letter before she left for America.

  • So the day before Tuesday I wrote her a long letter.

  • Mhm, mm hmm.

  • You're welcome.

  • It's freaking cold and it's rainy.

  • Oh!

  • But yeah, okay, so I'm gonna cook.

  • I'll show you guys what I'm gonna cook in just a second, literally like my Tuesdays are just all work and editing.

  • I come home and I edit and I go back to work.

  • So, so I'm gonna cook now and I'm gonna cut everything up so you guys don't judge me.

  • I'm like cutting.

  • Mhm.

  • I started editing a video and started to feel a little bit more tired than usual but thought maybe it was because of it just being a busy week Wednesday.

  • I worked all day, it was rainy and I was still more exhausted than usual.

  • I was also coughing a lot more.

  • But I went on with my day as normal and got a Starbucks coffee editing during my break.

  • Mm hmm.

  • Okay.

  • So I'm preparing my christmas lesson today.

  • Um I can't really show too much.

  • And above me.

  • These are for earthquakes just in case you know you need to protect your head.

  • Mm hmm.

  • The next day I headed to the doctor to get some cold medicine and asthma medication since I was having some trouble breathing but sometimes when I get cold this happens.

  • So again, I didn't really think much of it that night.

  • I went on with my work but noticed my throat started to feel swollen around two a.m. It was so difficult to swallow.

  • And I had to work the next day I called off to go to the doctor because the more the night went on, the more feverish I got my fever reached 40.2 degrees Celsius and only a couple more hours, which is about 104 F.

  • This was the worst fever I've ever had.

  • I didn't film anything because I was afraid.

  • So I walked to the clinic and they gave me a flu test which came out negative and then an X ray which turned out to be mycoplasma pneumonia.

  • I had this two years ago but never this bad.

  • It's more of a common thing than you think, especially in Japan.

  • And for asthma sufferers who are more prone to this.

  • My anxiety was so high because it was the last week for my students and I couldn't be there.

  • So I was in full panic mode the next night I woke up at two a.m. In the most pain I've ever felt.

  • It hurt to breathe, to talk, laugh, lay down, walk to the point where I thought I was literally dying.

  • My fever was high again.

  • So I called my boyfriend and I carefully walked five minutes down the street to the er luckily I received a stronger medicine but I was not allowed to fly home for another week.

  • This was the worst timing.

  • I'm glad I could change my ticket with a fee of course and fly home later in the week.

  • Good morning.

  • Just packed a little bit yesterday actually a lot.

  • I didn't really need to bring too much, but today I'm going to clean.

  • Today is Tuesday.

  • Yesterday was monday as you can see behind me, it's a mess.

  • I'm not going to do too much cleaning but I think I should do as much as I can because I do want to come home to a clean apartment.

  • I feel so much better today.

  • I'm coughing a little bit but that's okay.

  • Like I got some of my energy back because I haven't been like exercising or moving.

  • I feel so weak.

  • So I went to the store to get some extra stuff, some snacks, some Kleenex, some wipes to wipe down the desk when I get on the plane because you know, I have allergies.

  • So I need to make sure that I wipe it down.

  • Mm hmm.

  • I've got a bunch of cleaning products that I don't know how to use.

  • So this will be a really fun video.

  • I was reading up online about different cleaning products and this one Youtuber was talking about these things.

  • I guess you're supposed to wet them and they're supposed to get like skid marks off things and like clean really tough stains.

  • We'll see about that.

  • I got these drain things.

  • I've used these before.

  • They're not anything new.

  • Just throw them down the drain and they're supposed to clean the drain and the toilet.

  • I got some of these cloths.

  • I don't know why.

  • This stuff is awesome.

  • If you have like one of these things in your sink, like bubbles up and then it cleans this part.

  • And I usually use like a toothbrush.

  • Always wear gloves and just scrub it, which I have to do today.

  • I got this stuff to clean countertops and things and make everything nice and shiny.

  • I need to clean the ship out of my apartment.

  • So this is like a deep cleaning video.

  • I never let things get like this.

  • Like I'm usually a very clean person, but this is like the before.

  • I don't even know if I want to show you how grody this is.

  • This is like the life of a Youtuber slash teacher slash blogger one day I'm gonna move and I'm gonna be living in a bigger place because this is not, this isn't working for me, this is copy killer.

  • I said that really weird, but I needed more of this and I don't have a lot, but it's just like basically to kill mold and grime and stuff.

  • So this stuff is strong, so just be careful with it.

  • It's hard to focus, but it tells you to put it underwater, take it out, put it underwater and then clean and then throw it away.
