    Same! After I saw his stuff I felt like Cambridge is not just academically amazing but an overall amazing experience. Holly's videos spent too much time showing her eating and none at all showing us Cambridge and the student experience 😂 and Joe is very unrelatable and he overedits making it seem like I'm watching a montage rather than a vlog. even though they're both great people I'm sure and I don't wanna bash em, they're just not Jake 😁
    That's true :love: it just seemed like Cambridge was totally magical. Omg :rofl: Holly's videos do focus a ton on eating, I get hungry after watching her vlogs (and I feel about ten times healthier). I thought Joe's editing was pretty neat but you're right, they don't feel as natural as Jake's vlogs - besides, I don't think he'll be able to vlog more about Cambridge for long.

    The strange thing is I still love Jake's videos even though he's graduated when I was in London I wanted to go to Richmond so badly to stalk him down lol. No Cambridge vlogger will ever be able to reach his superiority!

    I'm not even vegan, but I've been watching her videos in amazement at how she seems to balance her time so well and have the time/patience to prepare healthy meals and do all these different things

    Haha, do you not speak Chinese regularly within your family? Or are you not 100% Taiwanese by parentage?

    I can speak Chinese and write Chinese fairly well, but my parents want me to be good at "literary analysis" and to be cultured or something. Yes I speak Chinese at home.

    Yeah I feel the health too after seeing her eat a plate of fruit, I don't understand how anyone can live off of that though. honestly if I eat fruit, no matter how much I eat, after 20 minutes i feel as if I haven't eaten anything at all. I need something cooked 😂

    Wow you're one of those crazy fangirls aren't ya :laugh: (no offence)
    I considered vlogging at cam myself (if I get in) but then again I want a first too, so I gotta set straight my priorities :rofl:

    I see, that's good to aim for. I think my Chinese will never go beyond a conversational standard.

    Hahaha, I don't particularly want to study Mandarin literary analysis :rofl:

    That's ok, as long as you can hold a conversation, that's definitely enough.

    This might sound shallow, but why would you have to travel to China to improve your Mandarin? For me I'd think Taiwan is pretty well placed for opportunities to learn and improve.

    I think my parents want me to have experience living abroad (in Beijing to be precise) I could easily go to a language class in National Taiwan University and just sit in, so yes you are right.
