I love how Kenna thinks she's such a poet and intellectual, so into dark academia, visiting old libraries all over Europe, finding out Horace Walpole is just like her, quoting Virginia Woolf to caption her snow filtered pics and yet she her favorite book is... a John Green one. I guess it makes a lot of sense cause she has read like 4 books in her life, all of them YA.
One of the persons who "admitted they contacted Kaila" here o/ Afaik the not contacting snowflakes rule is for a) not interfering/causing drama b) not coming here to post the screenshots and get likes, which I didn't. Kaila is not a snowflake and not family, she has a very public platform and I only commented on the impression I got from her which is that she's not looking for drama and I think that's great. So relax, don't threaten anyone with tagging a mod and just do it if you think someone is breaking the rules, no one is causing any drama.
I messaged Kaila too. Won't post but she basically said the same, doesn't seem like she wants any drama but she doesn't seem shocked either, I guess she expected this from Kenna. I really like Kaila's style and the only reason I felt iffy about her is because she was friends with Kenna, which has been solved now lol. As others have mentioned, I think she just wouldn't put up with Kenna's bullshit and she's being decent enough not to make a bigger problem out of it. Calling her an ableist without explaining anything and considering they spent a whole month traveling together and were friends for a while is such a shitty thing to do. Even if you end a friendship with someone you should have some decency, but is Kenna so we all know she doesn't know what that is.
No doubt the only people that can stand Kenna (because they feel obligated to) are her family and Grace, who is basically like family afaik. Every girl who has been "friends" with Kenna in Japan ended up unfollowing her, like Venus and Mikan before.
Ignore the spoiler, I don't know how to get rid of this pic.
Yep, I was going to say this. I'm not sure if I believe Kenna experiences this, and I don't want to doubt her diagnosis based on my own experience (I'm autistic), i mostly doubt it because she's a liar, but auditory processing disorder only affects what I hear when a person talks to me. Maybe that's why I love books and writing so much, because words make way more sense on paper or a screen to me. Do you remember the teacher from Charlie Brown? That it was all gibberish when she spoke? That's how I feel sometimes when someone talks to me, specially strangers. For example, I find myself asking the barista to repeat two or three times what they just asked me (type of milk, if I want something else etc) because I can hear they spoke to me but I don't understand what they said, but I don't have any problem writing or reading.
$9 in my country, but for the WHOLE day (8-10 hours), not per hour. So around 1 usd per hour. I'm lucky enough not to make minimum wage here but even as middle class traveling to Europe with 2,000 seems like such a privilege.
Yeah her friend's pictures are way better, they are filtered obviously, but it is much closer to what these cities actually look like during this time of the year, while Kenna completely changes the true looks of any place to make them fir her current aesthetic. Everything that exists is only decor for her feed, the whole world. Kaila is also way better at dressing, specially for this trip, I really like her style although she seems kinda shady. And I was actually going to compliment her latest outfit, since I think it looks cute (and close to my style so I don't hate it lol) but 1) I hate the goddam brown filter and 2) she googled a quote by Woolf She should use quotes by John Green and Maggie Stiefvater, at least she has pretended to read those (or actually did), but I guess that wouldn't make her look like an "european intellectual" huh? Everyone can see that she only googled "October quotes" and picked the one she thinks will make her look smarter when she has never read Virginia's diaries. Well, I guess not "everyone can see" and her followers will kiss her ass talking about how they like Woolf assuming Kenna knows her too without realizing she just looks for these quotes as someone would look for an emoji. Googling quotes like this wouldn't even be wrong if she actually got interested in these authors, but again, everything is just decor. I can't stand how fake and shallow she is.
Nothing against this book or YA in general, but since she only pretends to read the books her friend Grace reads/recommends, she only ever mentions this kind of stuff, which is funny considering she's going for this dark academia aesthetic. I also don't think there's something wrong with people older than 21 reading books about teenagers (I actually really enjoy reading children's literature and it's one of the subjects I research at university as well as history of libraries) but again, Kenna is only interested in teens because she seems to relate to the problems of 16 yo characters (or younger). I find something so odd about this 23 yo woman pretending to be such an intellectual and claiming Horace Walpole is just like her, but showing how one of the few books she has ever read (if she actually did) is a John Green colab.
Yep. She didn't even worry to look up any information about him, she visited a house she liked, probably read a little plate with basic info about him and decided they were soulmates. I think the reason it makes me so mad is that she could actually use her position (with hundreds of young people following her) to promote reading and make young people get into amazing writers like Walpole, but instead she only uses names to make herself look more interesting and smarter than what she actually is. Te only "art" she ever talks in depth is what she makes. Has she ever shared a poem by someone who isn't herself? Of course not. The most literary thing we can find on her instagram are the quotes she googles to post with her pics. I wish I could talk to almost 1M people on youtube about how I found The Castle of Otranto at a book fair when I was 13 years old and got it because I liked the cover, and how I read it that night and couldn't stop because it was so mysterious and beautiful and scary at the same time, how it gave me nightmares because I was a child but I read it over and over again for months and decided I wanted to start writing and reading more stuff that made me feel like that. Kenna could do that, but she never will because she doesn't like anything but herself, everything she talks about and obsesses over are things she only uses to decorate her "personality".
I can't believe she just compared herself to Horace Walpole (pretty sure she never even heard his name before today and will never read him, she just used the house for ~aesthetics~). She uses a Wikipedia tier description of people to prove how much she is like famous poets or artists when they actually made ART, meanwhile she's here just stealing, copying and being the most basic tumblr bitch in the world.
Also Horace Walpole was most likely bisexual, he had relationships with a few women and was described as "effeminete" by his contemporaries, that he didn't marry doesn't mean he was asexual Kenna, people couldn't express his sexuality in the past if they were homosexual or bisexual, so stop invisibilizing them just to force your obsession with making people you want to relate to seem aromantic asexual "like you".

I agree with you on the quiz (I started talking about it and then regretted because even if it was to criticize it we all started actually taking it and talking about it). I mentioned it was just fake deep crap, and so I agree we should move on cause she's probably going to say/do more relevant stuff in regard to more important topics that make everyone in this thread dislike her during her Europe trip anyway. About the lack of Japan content and her food choices LOL no, that is not nitpicking.
If you think this thread doesn't have enough juicy drama or not the kind of drama you like, just skip it instead of telling people what they should and should not criticize about Kenna. There is a reason why she has 6 threads: almost everything she posts online is somehow problematic, and so people talk about it. Almost every little comment you might perceive as nitpicking usually comes from something very big she did in the past and hasn't changed. I stopped lurking for half a year because I got tired of this, but then just... stop reading and let people discuss what they want. We get new people quite often so it's normal some topics are discussed more than once and is normal that everyone has an opinion on it.
Anyway, someone else mentioned Kenna's friend tagging her pictures with her bf as "interracial couple" and I was curious, just got home from uni and decided to check her profile. I found a picture on the boyfriend's instagram that I don't remember seeing here (sorry if it was posted before), but I wouldn't be surprised if Kenna decided to hide it because she doesn't look as smol and pale as she REALLY is
I think she's just too stupid lol, not even her would get sorted into that house because it doesn't make any sense, it's too contradictory and getting sorted into it is very random. It's all everything she thinks she is in her head, but we all know it's not true. I answered a lot of the questions that seem to indicate I would be the cat house and others that were clearly foxtail, but I still got the sparrow one according to god knows what. The quiz is so poorly designed that it doesn't make any sense at all.
Didn't even bother to watch, I cant's stand her fake "autistic" way of talking and I find it insulting, but I was curious about the quiz since that's more than she has ever done for a video. As someone commented already, the questions are as fake deep as Kenners (what did I expect?) and as an INTP (I've gotten INTJ as well) 99% introverted myself, I'm SO GLAD I didn't get sorted into her stupid foxtail house. After reading her questions and seeing my result, I'm convinced that even if she fakes the description of Foxtail to make it look like the house for introverts and INTP/Js in general, the people who ACTUALLY are would get sorted somewhere else (I got sorted into Sparrowcrest, which sounds like a mix of Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw).
