She explained when she did the video about her apartment that Hiro’s mom was the one to find it for her. They also helped her move in and such. My exes families are like Hiro’s so it’s relatable. Breaking up is basically expected when it’s your first relationship (or one of the first), but people aren’t going to abandon bonds they forged over a year or more. If I were alone in a country with them only minutes away, they would absolutely invite me for dinners or tend to me during natural disasters. What bothered me in the typhoon video was the finger gun. Admittedly, that’s a just a trigger now. I agree with her that people are super annoying about weather one-upping but she’s ranted about that SO many times it’s a bit tired. Granted, those were all on Instagram so she wanted to hit YouTube with it once, but...enough
When it was mentioned that she removed a toxic friend from her life, I assumed it was Kenna because of shade like that as well as the fact that they unfollowed each other on IG around the time she said she got rid of the toxic person. She also said on a recent livestream that she hates the American spelling “cozy” instead of “cosy.” That one is likely unrelated but still funny.
That would make sense. I’ve never watched BestDressed but I’ve heard of her because Mikan says all the time that she’s her favorite YouTuber. I’m sure it’s a great video for their targeted audience but it’s not for me.
It doesn’t sound like you saw the original posts by Mikan that we are discussing (besides the few selected and posted here by someone else; it was an incomplete assortment). I said I would shame her if she took out the loans that are available to her for fashion school, specifically. There are only limited ones available to immigrants, with bad interest rates. It sounds like a poor investment to me, but it’s her life. She certainly doesn’t need a student loan repayment plan to “teach her responsibility.” She’s been living alone in a country far from anyone she ever knew since she was 19, adulting pretty hardcore. I also never said anything about my opinion on her taking donations, so not sure where you got that. Just “lol wow PULL scared her off the Ko-Fi.” I said Patreon isn’t e-begging and that if she figures out a side hustle, more power to her. She was discussing additional content she could offer. We don’t know anything about the situation with her and her mom but regardless of what’s happening there, abusive parental relationships are way more complicated than you make them out to be. Yes, people do still see their abusers, or accept money from them, or vent about them and then contradict themselves. It’s complicated. It’s her mom. I had no plans to watch the new video because it didn’t sound like my cup of tea. That menstruation discussion does sound bizarre but birth control is free where I live so I dunno. Works for us.
It started because she says it, usually in a jocular manner, like you see most students do. The objective definition would be making less than $20k USD annually, I think? Don’t know what her part time job pulls in but the YouTube channel is still only a trickle. I use the term poor perhaps too loosely, as I consider “living comfortably” having savings equivalent to 6 months of unexpected unemployment.
Look how she responded to the Ko-Fi suggestion—so fearful of the PULL reaction. She is a gossip and a self proclaimed drama queen. She likes following YouTuber dramas as much as anyone. Statements from the subject of a thread are full of their own biases and attempts at cultivating their image but I would still welcome it if she jumped in the ring again. Tentatively throwing out the idea of starting a Patreon is not e-begging. Her stress was expressed mildly with a potential solution/brainstorming session. My friends don’t know that they’ll have every bit necessary for 2-4 years of tuition but they are still pursuing higher education. This excludes people who took out moronic loans or had total parental support, of course. I would never shame someone for leaping into trade school on faith. I will shame her if she takes out a loan for fashion school, but she said herself she’d prefer to pay it in full and not become another youth with student debt. If she figures out a side hustle that helps her avoid that horrific mistake, good on her. Please. Everyone. Go eat some shaved ice and BBQ chicken with your friends. It’s okay. Poor people are allowed to spend money on eating at restaurants. They are allowed to emigrate to expensive cities. It doesn’t invalidate their stress about tuition payments or visa renewals. Immigrants are just out here trying to live their dreams, too. She didn’t say it was a life or death matter. She didn’t throw one of her signature tantrums. She didn’t start a crowdfunding page. It’s fine.
She reminds me of the problem kids in class who would prefer to do an exaggeratedly poor job in front of their peers for a laugh rather than be vulnerable and give it their best shot — all at the expense of their own educational experience. Yes, anyone would be nervous in the situation she was in (recording with the hands-on direction of someone she likely admires). All the more reason to not drink constantly and subsist on only caffeine and sugar.
Yes, Mizu is half Japanese. I believe it’s her father who is Italian as he owns an Italian restaurant somewhere in Japan. She not only unlisted it, but changed the name from “weeaboo makeup with Mizuki” to “proper japanes (sic) makeup”
Kenker is such a snob, only models and influencers make it to her stories I do love that Mizu doesn’t follow cozykitsune on her personal or main, though. That combined with the weeb shade says so much. Even a girl who can tolerate Venus finds Kenna insufferable. Mikan and Kenna also unfollowed each other—Mikan’s success and successful integration was probably too much to bear.
