So, at the moment Rachel and Jun are at our place, and as we’re editing this week’s Eatyoursushi episode we told them the two stories we shared, and – they admit – they haven’t come across people as crazy as we have so far. So I’m starting to wonder, going back to one of the questions we answered before: are our lives really as eventful as we make them out to be? Back then our answer was, no. Our lives aren’t eventful. We just get very excited about things, and keeping a happy perspective is always important. But after meeting these two people on this bizarre Saturday, we’re not going to say that nothing ever happens in our lives. Martina almost had demons pulled out of her through a subway man’s pliers. Sometimes, things are crazy for us. But for our next week’s Eatyoursushi we do not have crazy stories to tell. We have boring stories that we find really amusing, but no bizarre encounters this time.
Otherwise, we can now finally talk about Pokemon Go. I think we’ve come to a conclusion about it: WE REALLY SUCK AT IT. We’ve been playing it for about a week now or so. Martina is at level 9. Rachel just started playing a few hours ago. She’s at level 8. HOW THE HELL ARE WE LEVELING UP SO SLOW?! It could just be that our area is lame and there’s not a lot of activity, so we can’t catch as many Pokemon, while Rachel has loads of Pokemon we’ve never seen, because she was in the Shibuya area. So maybe that’s it. Our area’s lame and so our levelling up is slower than most people. Poop. But I will say this: our bike riding and phone rocking technique WORKS! We were able to hatch eggs more quickly that way. Give it a shot if you can, but on a not busy street, of course. Don’t die plz.
Also, some of you might be confused about the photoshoot thing we were doing in this week’s video. It wasn’t for anything in particular. It basically came from the fact that, when we did our Japan Times interview, the photos used were really old photos of us. We look different now. We keep on doing interviews, though, and the pictures they use don’t really reflect what we look like now. So we just got a bunch done. I don’t know what they look like yet, but they were fun! We walked around Shimokitazawa, and it really reminds us of Hongdae, so shooting around there was almost nostalgic for us. Hopefully the pictures turn out all right. We’ll share them with you once we can!
