    Why do we care if she bashes the UK? Many people in the UK are bashing their own country especially since the particular recent event with Boris ūüôĄ

    I wonder if shes putting him on "standby" or sticking around in hopes he will take her back. Poor guy he seems too nice. Shes definitely more invested in him than he is to her, they don't even seem platonic, it's like they are on a break or something (in Vina's mind)... it's embarrassing.
    Hows Vina gonna act when he gets a new girlfriend and doesn't give her the time of day anymore? Lol

    Sorry to derail the conversation but I have seen PLENTY of other users here somewhat "comparing" or "blogging" about doing more stuff in Japan than Kenna. Even humble bragging that they know more nihongo than her. I'm confused??? Why you all going ham on that particular user now?

    The purple dress could work. Depends on how it fits on her.
    I was shopping at yesstyle the other day and I noticed the model pictures have the exact same fashion style as this girl. I swear all she wears is plaid, lace and turtlenecks in "layers" with some beads as jewelry. Honestly her style looks amateurish and its a style that any fast fashion consumer that shops at *cough* yesstyle *cough* can put together pretty easily. Shes definitely lacking in creativity in comparison to the other students and I am baffled that she managed to get into BUNKA. Maybe shes not very "artistic" idk but she needs to look at a different approach... she needs to experiment more, cause her style has not improved since she first came to japan till now, even though shes at fashion school.
    Well yadda yadda she can wear what she wants, idc its just something I wanted to express.
    And layering doesn't always make an outfit look good imo. In fact to me sometimes it just looks tacky.

    I made the biggest mistake and told my ex about suicidal thoughts. He just asked me why do I think that. 
    "Omg. Just be positive! Ok???" He said.

    I noticed a lot of them dont live in east asia and/or have never visited korea/japan. It's probably to do with the fact that they know that they can never be "close" with their idols physically so they do whatever it takes to be "like" them, that way they feel some phony connection/relationship they have with them in their head, I know hes not trans but look that that oli london guy for example :S. Honestly its purely romanticizing and deluding themselves with this fantasy of being close and like "them" because they are too insecure/self doubt to be themselves which is kind of sad. Its like the whole "I am not cute enough for oppa so I need to look as 'kpop' as possible to feel 'approved'" crisis going on in their head.
    Hope they can be able to love themselves.. kpop is not fan fiction and korean kpop idols are not in the cute bl yaoi shipping world they believe that they are in...

    I believe shes climbing Arthurs Seat? It's an extinct volcano and it's not as intense/big as it¬†seems as shes making it out to be lol. Its like a big hill not a mountain lmao. It's funny how shes exaggerating and everyone here is believing what shes doing an "intense hike" lololol. People go for walks there in their casual clothing all the time or go for a jog. I went for a run there every morning ūüėā.

    Lol shes a grown ass adult. We get it you are on good terms. Why can't you stop talking about him and move on? Its honestly getting boring as hell. My opinion but staying friends with an ex without any form of no contact is never a good idea.

    Lol I think Mikan loves to brag a lot to her followers. Look at me! Look at me! I have so many friends and I have tthis amazing life in Japan! She loves to bring up her ex whenever she has the chance, gotta make sure people know that her and hiro are still "friends" because she just loves showing off how she has more Japanese friends than you uwu~ Anyway a bit of bragging is alright nothing wrong with that, but constant flexing can give impressionable young weebs that disillusion that Japan is fantasy land where nothing goes wrong! Anyway its not really a problem I have with her, all the j-vloggers are like this. 
    The Piper situation was really awkward... Personally I genuinely think that Mikan was very excited about seeing her friend for the first time in Japan from the way she talked about it. But to be blunt she seems like an attention seeker and has a savior complex. The fact she kinda is feeding her ego because she helped Piper get to glorious nippon is really off-putting and she obviously has to rub it in everyone's face. Shes the type of friend that likes to make everything about themselves and always is quick as  ever to take credit for everything... I've dealt with people like that before. Your insecurity is showing Mikan, its great that you helped her come here but don't put down your friends on your video and embarras them infront of your 150,000 followers. "Oh she has nothing to do with her life and is a loser yadda yadda" is what you want to tell people as a first impression? Girl bye it makes you look like a bitch honestly. 
    Oh and yes "banter" in the UK can actually be really harsh... well at least in Scotland cause thats what I know. But honestly... Mikans banter always seemed tame to me? I have heard a lot worse than that at my former work for example. That type of banter I wouldn't say is sarcastic but more shading and "roasting" the person, in a joking format. Some people can take it but usually if the person is not a dick they don't push that kind of thing to more sensitive people. I'm honestly not trying to excuse her though. The ones that hide behind "iTs JuST a JoKE! Calm DoWN!" To not look like a total dick well, means they are just being a dick lol.

    Omg this is pissing me off.
    Black women have been told for many years that their hair texture is not "desirable" in society and are forced into that assimilation. Its not as easy as "Oh stop wearing wigs and wear your natural hair because you are trying to be xx," shaming black women because they dont wear their real hair esp if youre not a black person yourself is pathetic. Some dont just want to. Deal. With it. Also wearing wigs is also an option as a protective style as black hair is quite fragile and needs more attention. 
    It's aggravating when non-blacks esp tell me how I am supposed to wear my hair. Oh you have to wear your natural texture only or else you are self-hating black and you should be ashamed! Being black is more than just hair texture you know?
    Yes Meghan can be koreaboo-ish with her "koreaboo-baiting" videos but is she erasing her heritage? No she isn't! And if anyone actually thinks that they obviously haven't seen the "koreaboo/wannabe asian" threads. 
    P.S I wanted to add that I am all for supporting and promoting natural afro-hair texture and encouraging black women to wear their natural hair but at the end of the day its everyone's choice to decide what they want to do with their hair but shaming others about hairstyle is just lame.

    I lived in Scotland, UK almost all my life as a POC. And by having multiple friends from Pakistan and a few from Iran I can comfirm that non east.asians in the UK do refer to themselves as ASIAN.
    I think the confusion comes from the fact that middle eastern is also used to refer to people from countries in asia also. For example north africans wouldnt be considered "asian" but many consider them "middle eastern". But It's really not that deep Iraq is in asia, so technically she is asian. 
    I truly understood/empathise with her when she was talking identity issues and not actually fitting in. I think wanting to assimilate into society and be accepted can affect you deeply, so I do actually agree that she may be in denial and deep down she wished she would be as "kawaii" as the japanese. As she clearly seems a bit insecure and seeks approval. As someone who is ethnically nigerian I remembered sometimes hating being black growing up as my family didnt accept me as nigerian as I "couldn't speak the language properly", faced racism esp in high school. And always getting the annoying "where are you originally from?" By strangers by the first encounter. So I didn't feel like l belonged in the country I knew best. It can really eff you up mentally. Like Mikan, I too thought that I would be much more beautiful if I was white and had a white name so I would be liked better.
