Welcome back to “Jaiden doesn’t know how to map out video lengths!” :3 Okay, so here’s the story from Japa-getting home from Japan I was gonna talk about in the last video… but.. didn’t… Please don’t make fun of me. It was a long flight. I was very tired. 🙁 Just kidding… I’m an actual idiot here. There’s no excuse. ;-; So after another “quick” flight of 11 sleepless hours, I landed safely and was ready to go home and die! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ My roommate offered to pick me up But my house is a good forty to fifty minutes away from the airport and I felt bad for making them pick me up so much. Because a week before I went to Japan, I was in the UK visiting friends for my birthday. Don’t give me any birthday wishes. It was in September. You’ll be an embarrassment to the both of us. They’d already driven me to and from the airport three times in the past three weeks. And I didn’t want them to use up any more of their time and gas. So I let them know I was just gonna grab an Uber. Which worked out because they were invited to go get lunch with a friend and were worried about time overlap. Win, win!~ They get get a nice lunch, I get in a stranger’s car! Warning flag number one, I’ve never used Uber before. I have my own car. I usually don’t need to use an app to find a guy with a weird R-name to drive me around. Ten minutes of confused button-pressing later… Ding! Your Uber will arrive in 5 minutes. Nice.~ (Jaiden waits like the good girl she is) *The stupid iPhone ringtone* Hello? (Yes, is this Jaiden?) (*social awkwardness intensifies*) Yeah, I’m at the gate, uh, terminal B between area 44 and 45. I don’t see you. Are you near B- *Hang up tone* (Rude move lil dude) H-Hello? *Your Uber has cancelled* What!!? D:🙁 Rajesh. “Go up the stairs.” Boom. Everyone’s problem is solved here. Here’s a bunch of money. (yA yEEt) When you think about it, Uber is kind of like the opposite of a kidnapping *Car door opening sound* *WHIPS OUT GUN* take me home… I got a new uber that took 15 minutes to arrive (yay) and in an hour later I was almost home. maps can be kinda wonky with my house address. So he started driving past my neighborhood. *Casual car silence* Uh- “Oh, it was back there. Sorry about that.” “Oh, that’s okay. Which one was it?” I live in a little community with a bunch of houses (bunch is understatement) So I said it was the one on the corner. Could have been more specific. But that’s just what came to my mind in the moment. He turned around but stopped at the wrong house and was like “ThiS oNE?” *Awkward panic inducing silence and dramatic zoom in* Look. I was running on no sleep for the past 20 hours, So my mush of a brain started being spazzy and socially anxious about the whole situation that *INHALE* Wasn’t even a situation, almost all my brain cells were dead at this point except for the one that ate grass in elementary school. (smart boi) “Oh you had to correct him because Google Maps is being weird? Huh. I didn’t know you were SATAN.” (he lowkey looks like Tony Stark) I felt like I was bothering him a whole lot with all the one corrections I gave him. So in a panic I was like (This is the wrong house.) “Yep! This is it! Thanks so much. I really appreciate it.(end me) Sorry for the hassle. Wow, it’s wow Is it great to be home at this house that I live in again? Oh how I missed it because it is mine.” I’m paying this guy and it’s his job to take me to my house. (Skyrim waypoint reference) *Burp* So if it accidentally stops at the wrong one, it helps literally no one for me to be like ._. “Aw yeah, this is totally it.” I’ve become a lot more socially confident and calm in the past year But this is not a good example of that improvement at all. I am aware. I look like a wreck right now “Paint me jack..” I got my stuff from the trunk walked up the driveway END ME Thanks! *frantic running that totally isnt suspicious or anything* Now I’m standing in the front step of this random house hiding from an uber driver, hoping the people who actually live here don’t realize the random girl standing here for literally no reason. Yes. This is exactly the spot I wanted to be in right now :’D *Sweating profusely* “Honey, did we adopt a 21 year old asian girl, or is this a very unthreatening house robber?” (BOTH) I was stuck there waiting for him to leave but he was just siTTing ThERe(oof voice crack) Hey, can you get off the driveway I don’t own already? What the heck man? I got houses to rob.(EXPOSED) He was probably waiting to get connected to a new person to pick up but it wouldn’t have looked that great if he was also noticing me poke my head out and peer at him every 10 seconds. I couldn’t have started walking to my actual house because I already Pretended to walk into my house and he would have seen me and been like “Hey wait, this isn’t your house! What the heck you lied to me …for literally no reason. And I couldn’t have gotten out of the car and started walking to my actual house in the first place place, because I told him that THIS WAS MY HOUSE!!! He even double checked like, ” You sure this is good?” And I was like, “Yeaahup!” I was so loopy and lethargic from being up for the past 20 hours of traveling I couldn’t even tell what was reasonable at this point. Was I actually pulling this off like I thought I was? Were the neighbors just Watching me dig myself deeper and deeper into this hole? Could the driver actually see me this entire time? Because that would have been hilarious. “Mommy, Mommy, look! A dIRtY hOMeLeSs gIRl!!!” *closes curtains* rude He finally drove off and I walked over to my actual house across the street. “Yes, I’ve been looking forward to collapsing onto my bed since landing. I can’t believe I just did all that. I’m glad the neighbors didn’t call the police on me. *W a i t* *morbid realization* I don’t have any keys.” This wouldn’t have been a problem at all because like I said, I have a roommate but, hey, foreshadowing. Were you here this whole time? They were at lunch and weren’t coming back for the next three hours. Five Gum: Stimulate your Senses and break down your house door *HERE’S JOHNNY!” I’m not a professional when it comes to anything and that includes breaking into houses. But Lord dangit if that skill wouldn’t have been pretty darn handy to have right there. “Is it a crime to break into your own house, Your Honor?” “Yes? No…? This is kind of a weird situation for both of us ain’t it?” I tried the front door, the back door, the garage door, the secret door… There wasn’t any way I was gonna be able to get into this house. …which is how it should be. But I was still mad about it. *hushed tone* Frickin dangit.., living in a house that people can’t break into. *sputnik 1 falls* Stupid. I was so drained. I contemplated just laying on the ground of my backyard for three hours until someone came home. But I decided that would be an inefficient use of time and also too much of a depressing scene to look at for anyone walking by. So instead, I ordered ANOTHER Uber to drive me to where my roommate was so we could all hang out and then come back to the house together. Almost an hour later. I’m finally there. I tried my best to be social and energetic. We went and got lunch and stuff, but I was just in critical survival mode some people get all loose when they’re tired or giggly or maybe even more social but for me my body just reverts to maintaining the baseline functions for me to just- just be a human I’ll breathe and look around and not fall over but that’s basically it. *drop of spit* *blinking* “Oh my god, is Jaiden okay?” They were getting sushi, so I tried to eat some but coming back from eating sushi in Japan to some random place in California was just.. another variable of disappointing. *Jaiden chewing ASMR* I’m not having a good time right now… ;-; We got home, I crashed into my bed and proceeded to sleep for 17 hours. (same) *Freakishly sleep deprived chuckle* There’s no moral to the story. I just liked it. It makes me laugh because I’m being stupid But if I were to make one up last minute Make sure you can get into your house…without keys because you never…know when you’re gonna…need to get in…without keys. That was really bad. Oh well, sorry. I don’t know what else you want from me. See you later, but not in my house because you can’t get in. Ever since that incident, I’ve always left my house with my keys, which is honestly what I should have been doing from day one, but you know what? Shut up. Thanks a bunch for watching the video, as of right now VidCon London is coming up and I’m really excited to go and see my friends and some of you, I feel super freakin’ lucky to be able to travel around and do this kind of stuff. Younger Jaiden didn’t have any plans for the future, but this is definitely beyond anything. I could have tried to imagine. Also Ari’s in the sound booth right now. *chirp* Yeah, okay. *Inhale and chuckle* He laughs when I laugh. You wanna do it? *Waluigi voice* Hehehe… Hahahaha *Ari does cute little bird laugh* Umm…. you’re dope, I appreciate you, talk to you later bye.
