Health and moving updates!
By Bryan Wright
Hey guys! so we haven’t had much time to film any of our updates because we’ve been so busy at the end of this year, but we’re driving to my orthodontist right now. So I figured now was probably the best time I’m gonna get. Sorry, if it’s really shaky. I’m just holding the camera up in front of my face. So Oh no what did I- AHHHH That was the lens cap ; – ; Oh GOD ~ Who needs a lens cap? Here we go I think it’s ~ um.. *stressed laugh* We can find it later, so all the health stuff, uh, breast lump was just a cyst so that’s fine, the high platelet count, the doctor was like it’s not that high, so it’s not something he would worry about yet. It was – mine was like between 45 to 50 usually or something, above 40 to like 50 but he said they don’t usually start worrying about it until it’s like 100 to 150 so, we’re nowhere near that, just a little bit high. And then some of you mentioned that you can actually like donate platelets if you have like a high platelet count, and I don’t know if mine is high enough to warrant doing that yet? But that’s definitely something I could do, so when we move to Fukuoka I’ll look into that and see if that’s something that might be a good idea What else was there? So I had a colonoscopy about those results and the colonoscopy was clean so they were like, yeah, you probably just have IBS so it’s good to know, at least, that I don’t have anything as severe as some people in my family do have, I just have regular old IBS which is probably partially from diet and partially from stress. It’s usually manageable as long as I know my routine. The high eye pressure, they tested my eyes again and let me tell you I have no memory of doing this because this was after my colonoscopy, which I was fully sedated for and for some reason I remember waking up from my colonoscopy and I remember, like, leaving the colonoscopy office, but I do not remember going to the eye clinic afterward. Jun- you were so loud, you were singing, like, karaoke stuff (XD). No, I was not. I know I was not doing that. But I have no memory of the eye clinic But I guess I did an eye test again and they said my pressure was normal this time. So they said sometimes it fluctuates a little. Some of you guys mentioned that if you’re like squinting or holding your breath it can be higher on the initial test oh my god my arms are getting so tired （＾。＾;） I’m so weak now, I can’t do this. Do you guys want like the under chin? No, that’s gonna be bad, I just gotta do my best. So, I mean I’ll get a test again in a year about that, but it’s probably fine so basically everything was probably fine. So, a little sad we came back from America early and I didn’t get to see my family, but we’ve had so much to do that maybe it was kind of better anyway, especially for this time of year when we’re moving so, the New Year’s Christmas is not like a big thing here in Japan. It’s kind of more like a date holiday, but New Year’s is a huge holiday. Basically everyone gets off work and you go visit your family. So we spent time with both sides of Jun’s family June went and filmed his Uncle making mochi, which he wants to use in a Jun’s Kitchen video, so that’s something to look forward to in the future. What else have we done? We, when we went down to Fukuoka I’ve only been in our new apartment twice we’re trying to figure out what furniture we should take and what new furniture we’ll need before we get there because we can’t just go back and forth all the time, you know because it’s really it’s really far away. So, um Jun- it’s very expensive ~ I mean, it’s as expensive as us going to Tokyo from here, which is surprising considering it’s much farther than Tokyo, but it’s not bad when you consider it’s all the way down to Fukuoka anyway~ We, what was I saying? Okay, so right after we decided to sign the contract for our apartment, I asked the real estate person if I could spend a few hours in our apartment measuring everything. So I did that and I wrote down very very detailed measured floor plans of every single room. I measured everything from like the height to where – the height to where different panels on the walls where like button panels like you know the ones to answer the door and the one for the bathtub and stuff so we knew where that stuff was, so we knew how high the furniture we got could be. So, we have measurements for everything. So we’re actually able to do a lot of our furniture shopping here, before we even move there. So we’ve done a little bit of furniture shopping. We went and got a new bed. I posted on Twitter sometime over the past year like my – what my dream house would entail and I said something something about it being like an extremely large bed, or two giant beds pushed together to make one monster bed so that I could sleep like a starfish XD. And that’s kind of what we did. We ended up buying two semi-double beds that we’re gonna put together. It takes of our entire bedroom! According to my measurements, but we’re finally going to have enough room for us to both sleep comfortably. Right now, we sleep on a double bed and it is not big enough, especially when our cats sleep with us. We have not been getting good sleep for a long time just because there’s not enough room So we’re gonna have a very nice big bed Finally, I cannot wait to be able to sleep on that. We’ve also bought some furniture, Jun’s making a special Jun’s Kitchen sort of room So we’ve bought some furniture for that we have, bought, the – our new apartment comes with nothing so like it doesn’t even have, um Jun- air conditioner ; – ; it doesn’t have air conditioners, it doesn’t even have curtain rods. We have to I did not measure the inside of the window sills though, which is one thing I need to do because there’s some curtains you can get that like go inside the window sills, and some – anyway. So we need … everything, but it’s been very fun, I really really enjoy shopping for furniture, like, decorating the inside of our apartment is one of the most fun parts of moving for me. So, with all the stress of moving, that’s one of the things that has been really enjoyable for us is doing all of the shopping. While I was doing the furniture, there are these websites you can use now that, where you can like literally draw out your floor plans of your specific rooms and they measure it and then you can like add furniture with specific measurements so you can see what it will be like So I’ve been using that, to try to very accurately figure out what we can fit in our new apartment and what we can’t. The moving company is coming in like a week-ish? In like a week-ish. Jun- we don’t have enough time 0-0 Yeah, we need to get rid of a bunch of stuff before they come the first time they come it’s just gonna be for them to get an idea of what they’ll need to do to prepare for a move, I guess. Jun- but we also need to organize a little bit. Yeah, I need to, oh my god, we have so much to do we need to clean we need to get rid of the furniture that we’re not gonna move. Jun- we should make the list today then before the recycling center comes. Yeah, like the thing that really sucks is, you can sell furniture yourself like in Facebook groups or in different websites to other people who are moving and then you can kind of get a little bit of your money back doing that, but because it’s I don’t have – neither of us have – a Facebook anymore and like, we don’t want to let people know where we live, like we feel like maybe that’s not such a good idea. So, in the end, I think we’re just going to sell them to recycle shops like our old furniture Jun- I will give some of my kitchen boards to my Mom
