Personally, I don’t think there’s a single place on earth that’s even close to being perfect or 100% safe. I definitely think there’s too much drama around the trip, but I brought this up because it is a huge issue and I know a lot of people who dealt with it and didn’t know how to react. Do I think this trip will be a total disaster where she’ll run out of money and get seriously hurt or whatever?No. For the most part, she’ll be just fine. I believe I actually said that in a comment I made a long time ago. But the groping thing is common enough that she may encounter it (if she musters up enough courage to actually explore and not just hide in Starbucks and Disneyland...),and I hope she has the Japanese skills to call the person out if it does happen. It’s perfectly fine for her to love Japan. I think most of my concern is that her rose colored glasses will keep her from preparing properly. She’s got all this free time, but we have little indication that she’s actually studying. The most we know is that she reads here, and maybe she’ll get some ideas from everyone who comments on her thread. Even though chances are very good, she’ll stay in her safe, little bubble and not really explore, I still have a small hope that she’ll explore and gain new respect and love for Japan and see the country for what it is. It has its good and bad like any country, and I wouldn’t want anyone to encounter the bad without being prepared. Being groped already catches a person off guard and makes them freeze with fear and shock. You don’t need the added confusion of having no idea how to react and what to say in a language you don’t really know.
I wonder if Kenna would say anything if she got groped on a subway in Japan or if she would be too stubborn to admit that Japan isn’t perfect. I wouldn’t want anyone to go through that experience though. I hope she knows what to do if it does happen at any point during her visits there.
That “corset” (what’s a better word for it? Because it’s not a corset...) is so ugly looking. It ruins any chance the outfit could have had. It makes her waist look bigger (plus all the layers she wears now...), and sometimes the way it pulls the fabric down makes her boobs look like they’re sagging. It’s so unattractive. I wish she would drop it already. Also, the way her hair sticks out reminds me a bit of Alice’s triangle hair from “Dilbert”. Sorry, Alice.
I just looked at the other comments, and others were soooo much more helpful. The fact that she thinks Asian brands have a monopoly on pale shades... no, honey, no. There are so many brands that offer pale shades. If someone asked me this question, I would ask them questions before answering. What undertone they are, what finish they want, what kind of coverage, etc. But even just giving a specific brand is more helpful than “Asian brands!!” As a pale person who has tried various B.B. creams, that’s not helpful at all. She has to be vague because she doesn’t actually know anything about being pale and what makeup is out there for pale people.
I honestly think these girls look at the numbers when editing and go “it’s not that much” just because it’s not close to 100% or whatever. Like... “I only edited my eyes 20% bigger! 20% isn’t very much!” “I only moved the bar a third of the way to the right! It’s not that much!” They don’t seem to understand that even a small number like 10% on those editing apps is very obvious. The numbers may not look like much, but it is a lot.
exactly. She could have taken the opportunity to expand on the different kinds of love, going off of the various Greek words for love and their meanings or something like that. But nope. She only loves her things. It’s sad. I love giving people presents on Valentine’s Day- especially widows/widowers. Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be romantic love. My in-laws bought a gift for my son. It’s another day to show love to people, not just your significant other. She pretends to be deep, but her “poem” betrays her; she’s shallow, and her life is devoid of anything meaningful.
thank you! How many snowflakes on this website have gone to Japan and managed with little to no Japanese? It’s not some crazy, new idea. It’s been done plenty of times- even by some not-so-very bright people! While she isn’t the brightest, she’ll be just fine.
My understanding of trust funds: there’s a trustee who’s in charge of your trust fund. There’s an agreement for what the purpose of the trust fund is for. If you think your needs for something fall within the purpose of the trust fund, you can meet with the trustee to discuss obtaining some of the funds. If the trustee refuses to release any but you think you’re in your right to obtain some, you can then get a lawyer. Her fund agreement could include a clause about support or maintence or health reasons or whatever. We don’t know what is in her agreement, but I don’t think she’s lying about it.
Edit: very limited understanding lol. But it’s not necessarily completely off limits until she’s of age.
