[ Goodbye School, Hello Sendai ] Today I'm going with my friends to Sendai to take a break from everything At the end of this video I'll give some updates about school as well as a special announcement but in the meantime, I really just want to get to the hot springs in Akiu, just outside of Sendai, Japan. We're like the only WiFi network out here... on the way up I'm editing a few videos because weekends are my only chance to do it so that's why you can see here, I'm using the Ninja Wifi router that I normally use when travel. They're offering a discount this month in May If you use the code KC15 you can get 15% off. So let's go and get to Akiu! starting with some.....food! Time for some mountain vegetable soba... What is this? It looks like Asparagus... Cheers!!! Yeah, I don't know what they are... They look like flowers! Ahh, the clear air!!! Hello, everyone! It's so clear and beautiful out here! Feel the air out here!! Uh... where is this path going?? This is impossible!!! Are you serious?! It's a video!! What?????????? I'm taking a video!! OH GREAT. -_____- The rocks are really slippery! Sharp rocks at the bottom??? I do think so!!! We have 13 minutes!! 13 Minutes to make the bus!!! Let's do it!!! We got 13 minutes! Lets DO THIS!!!!! Hey guys! Just a quick update!! We just finished our hiking and we made the bus, that was good. We're staying at a really nice hot springs hotel but we happened to notice a really nice ice cream shop??? A local ice cream shop that sells Taiyaki I'm going to do a Q&A after the onsen so let's talk then. What are you doing?!?! I was trying to get some aesthetic going on! Was it me? No, I just choked!!! How pathetic... How sad... I looked up at Loretta and we just smiled. Then I just died!!! Alright, so much for that... I got some black sesame ice cream. This is supposed to be a student vlog!! You know? Whatever - it's recess! That's what we'll call this: RECESS, student vlog edition! I deserve a break... there's beautiful gardens and things... I feel like this is an "Outfit of the Day". This is my "fashion" for today. ("Did you get the timer working?") Oh, it doesn't work! Alright guys, I'm going to take some photos! ...and get in the onsen! It's time to RELAX Oh yeah... this looks good! There's always trash in the background! OK, here with the full on... What is this called again? ("Haori!") So I have my Haori and Yukata underneath... ...and it's ONSEN TIME! Hey! Welcome back :) We made it all the way back home and that was such a refreshing trip. I feel so much more human! At the beginning of the video I said I'd do some updates about what's going on at school as well as a bit of a special announcement! So I just want to quickly do that before we close out this video! OK! So I wanted to answer some of the questions you've been asking me and then afterwards I'm going to announce the winners of the second storytime/giveaway. Withh Japanese notebooks, and Star wars Schedule books. While I pull that up... so as for school, you can probably tell by the date on these videos but I am pretty behind on editing! It's because of the sheer volume of what's going on I ended up taking 9 classes and I"ll talk about that in my next video but I'm behind and need to catch up. So first question.... on Twitter! "How do you study new Japanese vocab/kanji while reading through grad school assignments?" I'm obsessed with these FRIXION pens they're erasable pens and this one's tricolor, in black, blue and red. which reminds me of some really old-school pens. But I write my notes in black, I use blue to highlight any major themes and red is the color I use to underline words so I can come back and study later. I'll just underline it and come back to it later. 2: Are the independently financed foreign students who were already enrolled and applied to the MEXT scholarship? I made a video with my friend Taylor and she was first independently financed (Shi-hi) and she changed to MEXT(koku-hi) after being recommended by her school. That's usually for when you're already in Japan. 3: Can I see a picture of a special place for you in Japan? Something inpiring for me... One of my favorite places in Japan is Kamo River I used to study at Doshisha University in Kyoto and when I lived there I would go to school then I would go to Kamo River and hang out. Watch the sunset and then go and do homework. Something about being there by the river and feeling like you dont need to talk to anyone is nice. I said I usually walk about an hour to school and you guys asked 4: Why Don't You Get a Bike? I'm not trying to get to school fast... I like walking because I don't have to go to the gym Instead of going to a gym, paying for a membership and such I don't even need ankle weights because my shoes are so heavy so if I just walk to school I get my cardio work out because I walk really fast, and then, it's a good chance for me to get my thoughts together? I'm usually running around all day long from 8am until 10 pm So those two hours there and back from school are the only two hours where no one talks to me and I can just think. It's kind of like meditation. I just prefer to walk. Also, 1 hour walking is not that much! I mean, i guess it's two hours in a day but that's not even the 10,000 steps you need in a day. So, I dunno, I don't really mind it! What camera and editing program do I use? Canon 60D, it's just a DSLR nothing extra fancy. The editing program I use is Sony Vegas Pro...10. Next question: What was I eating?? Everyone was like: "what is that WATER on VEGETABLES?!" One of the easiest Japanese-style breakfasts is called Ochazuke which means, to dump on green tea. You have steamed rice, and whatever toppings you want on top. Then you put green tea or dashi broth on top of it. I don't like to use dashi stock so much I like to use my chinese broth which is the red can you maybe saw in the video. I use a chinese chicken broth in all of my cooking so I just make a quick chicken broth and I had steamed rice, vegetables with mustard, black pepper, and poured chicken broth over it. Next: what am I studying and how did I apply? I'm studying in graduate school, getting my Masters in Business Administration also called an MBA. I applied through the MEXT Scholarship, which you can find out more about in my video called "MEXT...Scholarship..." Where did I get my skirt?
