A New Journey
I have been up to a lot lately, and this is the first look into some new content I can give.
As you might have already seen on my main channel lately, I have been getting back into vlogging this fall and decided to take my camera with me to a place I haven't visited in four years: London!
After I got scouted by a Japanese agency back in 2014 I left the UK, where I was living at that time, to pursue my dreams in Tokyo. The rest of the story you probably already know, since you found my website which I started shortly after.
If you don't know what I'm talking about you might want to check out my older posts (listed on the right side) or my Vlog Channel, where I took my camera along to my jobs as a model, idol and cosplayer in Japan as well as some private trips.
HeaLth Struggles & LIFE
I know to many of you following me this might seem rather uninteresting, but I am really starting to enjoy a regular "boring" life for now.
Even though it does hinder me time-wise in producing content I was always worried that I might not have enough time to learn the things I want to learn and work on a long-term plan.
I will definitely talk about my plans for the future at some point, but I am really happy that I have somewhat restored my privacy again after several years of having every corner of my life laid out to the public. I could have gone without it, hidden my identity completely and used a different artist name all along, however I chose to not live in constant fear of having scandals and shocking reveals and just made everything public myself. The plan behind this was to just not give anyone future (monetary) power over me and my career should things blow up one day.
Obviously they didn't, but it was a security I liked to have.
For the moment however I do enjoy being someone completely else, and even though my close friends know about my past endeavours in the entertainment industry, I keep most of it to myself.
I have also been working on skills I had a brief introduction to while living in Japan, but that have become less important in my life now. Even though I don't get to exercise these as much anymore I felt like it was important to not give up and let everything I had learned over the past years rot away.
I will definitely show you what I mean by that in the near future.
Premieres & Streams
I have also been streaming somewhat frequently on Twitch this year, mostly playing video games and talking about life in general while sharing what I cooked that day in a Mukbang. I never thought I really belonged into that corner of the internet, especially since I am really not great at fast-paced video games, but the social aspect of spending time with new people made it really enjoyable for me!
I generally stream Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, though I occasionally got time on the weekend!
I take donations via Tip Jar, Ko-Fi & Patreon for now, which really helps support the merchandise project and funding my new record. I was saving up quite a bit for it, but I had complications during my recent surgery and had to get stitched back up on my couch by paramedics, fund my own medication etc. which has left a hole in my funds.
I want to take this chance to thank everyone who is subscribed to my Patreon and donated to me via Ko-Fi & Tip Jar, I really wouldn't be able to spend time being Himezawa if it wasn't for you guys! Thank You!
Depending on how many donations I will get, I'll be able to distribute them down to any tier on my page, so your support really helps everyone on the subscription list!
Until next time!
