GRADUATING UNIVERSITY in JAPAN | Last School Vlog!
“Graduating Class of 2019…” “Please stand when we call your name…” [graduation day] March 26, 2019. [6:30 am] Good morning, everyone!
(Ohayou gozaimasu!) It is super dark and super early because it’s 6:30 am. Lily, say “hi!” to everyone!
(Lily: nope!) Today I’m going to get my Hakama fitted which looks kind of like a kimono with Japanese samurai pants. I’m also getting my hair done! We’ll see how that turns out… because it is….GRaDuAtiOn DaYyY~!! AAAHH!
(the crowd goes wild!!!) Today I graduate from my University in Japan SO! First order of business, I have a special announcement! I get to tell you my school name! Ready for the big reveal?! Today, you guys are coming along with me to my graduation! [ 3…2…1!]
(San, ni, ichi!) Yokohama Kokudai …tte kaitearun dakedo, Yokohama Kokuritsu Daigaku!
(Its abbreviated, but my school is Yokohama Kokuritsu Daigaku in Japanese) I am finally graduating from Yokohama National University and I’m graduating from my Master’s degree, my MBA
(Master’s in Business Administration) So today’s a big day! AHhHHH!! B: Lily, did you get a shirt?
L: let’s get going! Let me give a quick rundown of how today’s going to go: The studio that I’m going to is going to do my hair and outfit I don’t wanna pay like $100 for them to do my makeup if that’s not their speciality funny thing is, I don’t know how to do my makeup either! OOPS! I’M GONNA DO IT ANYWAY! I’ve got my Sakura spring nails to match my Hakama. This is the hair piece I’ll be adding, which also matches. We’re doing some kind of complicated up-do along with some pearl pins as well. This is called “chirimen” it’s a Japanese “crepe” style of sewing. there was also shibori but I thought these handmade sewn flowers were cuter. AND it’s got a smaller version so I can use it, even after graduation! If I want to use it for Yukata I can. I got these at Takashimaya yesterday and I’m really happy about them. We’re out of time so we’ll just talk as we go! (“It wasn’t supposed to rain today!!!!”) Ohayou gozaimasu~! (“Good morning!”)
Omedetou gozaimasu!! (“Congratulations!!”) Boomer: How do you feel?! How do you feel today?! The boots fit by the way!
(Boomer: the BOoOoOOooots♪！”)( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) There are some beauutiful Hakama and obi! So here is the final hair piece! I also have some little pearls! Are you ready?

Still fit! HEY GUYS! I want to sit this way so you can see. So I DID IT!… Oh wait…what am I saying?! I did it guys! *SquEalLL* I graduated! I got my diploma and let me say, it looks super cool! It’s super cool to see my name all in Japanese with the official school Hanko seal as well! iTs Real Its Real itss REAL! As of today I am officially a graduate of Yokohama National University There are definitely schools that people outside of Japan are more familiar with in Japan though, Yokohama National University well, any National University, but this one specifically is a renowned school When I first applied to the MEXT scholarships I got to apply to different schools I picked this one because I like Yokohama and Kanagawa when I tell people in Japan (at work) that I go there they’re like “I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU’RE GOING TO THAT SCHOOL?!” To me, it’s so real that I’m holding this I did it! I graduated in one piece. If you guys have any questions
about like what I’m doing in the future or what I did to get into here a lot of you don’t know, I have a second channel where I normally post my regular vlogs So we already did a Q&A about am I going to stay in Japan what are my next plans, WhAtS GoNna HapPeN!? I’ll leave a link below so you can check it out but if you have any other questions, like about school life or this hakama As you can tell, I am in no mood to take it off. I want to wear it all day. I can’t believe I’m wearing this in my own house! AHHHH! One more time.. AHHHHH! Look at these beautiful sleeves. Look at this fabric. This is BEAUTIFUL! I totally used this as pockets. This is the kimono, this is the under kimono under that I have like under, under kimono. and then I have a bunch of towels squished in here to make my body looks more straight-lined and flat. Lots of good stuff and I am in NO MOOD to take it off! Guys I graduated! It’s so much in part thanks to you guys, my family and friends Pretty sure the only reason I kept going forward is because you guys believed in me! The school president gave a speech, and just like he said, all we have to do now is take a big leap forward! and if you’re a foreign student, become a bridge for your home country and Japan. Just two little things! I’m really excited and feeling really good! Right back up to work again, right back to working woman life. Until then, see you in the comments! Thank for watching! Thanks for supporting!
