We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
I swear there was something about her making her own line with someone? I could be very wrong here but maybe this is one of them... But also I wanted to say don't forget her color filters. It may not look that shade irl sadly, even if she does tell what lipstick it is eventually. I love the color too though
Oooo Japanese horror stuff would be cool! But is she much into that? I could see her doing some aesthetic stuff based off some of the urban legends there but idk. She's very soft and gentle with her aesthetic right now so I feel like we won't see anything like that while she's in Japan.
Since I keep seeing the disney thing brought up, I'll respond to that as well. most humans who go to these places can get overwhelmed, ASD or not. This is probably why she always went with friends. They can be grounding and can help you if you start to feel overwhelmed. DisneyLAND is also way smaller and typically less swamped than Disney World. I myself have been to Disney world a few times as a kid and as an adult. As an adult I had my coping mechanisms ready. I don't know the parks as well as Kenna probably knoes disneyland, but it was easy to find more open areas I could rest when i was getting overstimulated. And a couple times, yeah, I just hadto leave the parks earlier than anticipated. But I was so excited to go, I was able to build up my defenses ahead of time to make it through an environment that could be potentially very disabling for me. im sure all of you have things you really dont function the best in, but still will do because you want to see a band live, or get a paycheck, or get to school/work, or support a friend, or much more. Just because someone has ASD doesnt mean theyre incapable of going to these places/doing these things. It just might mean they're sacrificing a bit more of their time to recover from doing them.
Don't wanna put this in the main Kenna thread but if anyone here sees things in Kenna's video that make them think "hey maybe I'm autistic??" I suggest checking out r/aspergirls. There's a ton of info there on it, tests to see if your hunch could be worth further professional testing, info on how to get through life and make the world less disabling for you, whether or not you even NEED to be diagnosed at any age, and more. And on another, more on-topic note, I wonder if she struggles with faces, and if that's why she can't see how crazy her shoops are on her face.
Eh testing isn't so easy to fake your way through. Most doctors can who can actually diagnose adult women and actually are willing to do it can recognize it before tests begin when you do your entrance interview. These processes for diagnosing asd take a LOT of time. It took over a year for me to even get into a clinic to be tested. Maybe that part is easier in Japan. Furthermore, diagnosis isn't just them asking you questions. I personally took a few questionnaires, did a lot of activities like connect the dots, finding similarities between things, word comprehension, an IQ test, a huge general test that shows how likely it could be something else or not (or to at least to look at potential comorbidities), and more. They required my parents to fill out a lot of info about me as a kid and another for me as an adult. My little brother got diagnosed a year later and it was actually a lot faster for him he said because it's so much easier to see in typical males. Again I worry she will use it as an excuse, but I doubt that she is lying about it, or somehow was intelligent enough to manipulate her way through that many tests.
Her possibly being on the spectrum has indeed been brought up a handful of times. Sometimes just because of her empathy issues (which isn't the giveaway for diagnosis and often asd folk just have "misplaced" empathy). Sometimes with seemingly more astutely observed reasons. But happily no one outright tried to diagnose her with it, as we shouldn't have.
Hmmm. I've seen qualities in her for it, and I'm a late-diagnosed female as well. I'll just be interested in seeing how she goes about living with this new label for herself. I really hope she doesn't use it as an excuse, as a get out of jail free card, as a crutch... I just don't trust her to not represent the rest of us poorly. I hope she doesn't just try to be ~trendy~ about it like she does with everything, I guess. Note, I haven't watched it through yet. I just don't know what to expect from her, but I'm sure ill post if I have any specific reactions to anything she says.
Did they break up on the trip back? Last I saw they were visiting her family after New York and then there was talk of them breaking up here. I'm definitely glad it won't be all "WE HAVE SEX" all the time now, but I do worry she's going to complain loads about NOT having sex now in every video. Still annoying when she's a fashion focus.
I've heard it actually is more sustainable to buy used leather than a new PU vegan leather product. No links to back this up, just have heard it in a handful of videos on YouTube. not that Kenna seems to truly care about sustainability.
Did a bit of googling and it's Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell (who also wrote Fangirl). Bree will be Eleanor. Don't know if they'll still be teens in it but I'm guessing they'll stick with the original premise.
Yeah, it's weird. If its 2 am back where she used to live, I guess i get it. But then she goes and acts like all her followers are in japan and know where to go for smoothies or umbrellas or whatever? Pick one and stick with it already...
Re: Juneteenth stuff circa page 518 of the current thread: I took Kenna's reference of pancake day to not be about shrove Tuesday, but in fact to be IHOP's free pancake day. It made me chuckle that that's where my mind went.
