      Hello everyone,   As promised, we're working on some changes to improve the forum and community! So far, here are the recent changes: Negative reputation has been disabled. Upvoting remains intact. This is a trial run to deal with whiteknights brigading certain topics and salty users mass-downvoting users they disagree with. Some text formatting options have been removed. Some users like to format their posts in ways that make them harder to read or downright obnoxious. (Light colors, tiny fonts, etc), so this helps make threads more readable. If you find yourself needing post formatting because you're making a new thread, please contact a mod and we will make it happen. New threads have to be approved anyway, so you're not going to have to start out with an ugly thread. Text formatting remains available to all users who have supported us via Patreon.No more threads on "Online Personalities". We will NOT lock or remove old threads, but we won't approve new threads about people who don't have any history of drama or controversies. Some threads will be moved to the snowflake sections if applicable. Read the new topic guidelines before you make a new thread.Here are our works in progress: New categories will be added. "Little Snowflakes" is too broad of a spectrum, so we're going to sort our flakes into a few sub-sections to keep things organized. We will also make more use of tags for those flakes who transcend categories. This will also allow us to appoint moderators to specific categories or snowflakes. New moderators will be onboarded soon.

    Personally having seen the Patreon video and her patreon streams (found on lolcow) the video seemed to be pretty vague/basic excuses, while i understand she's in no way obligated to share all her life, especially considering mental health struggles are extremely personal; but with her history of oversharing it seems like she just gave a basic answer to avoid getting into a lot of the drama and issues that were going on while she "wasn't uploading cause her mental health~~~" I do think it'll be really interesting to see her "new pixielocks" phase or whatever she's deciding to do, I am really interested to see where it goes. Also i don't feel like her "I'm a different person than i was a year ago"is a valid excuse for not uploading, everyone changes and adapts to their new surroundings but if youtube is her "job" she would need to do that regardless of her 'changing into pixielocks 3.0"that she's going with
     
    If you're talking about her newest Q&A with her boyfriend, it thought it was a cute and good idea, i personally enjoyed it ( but i do love these types of chatty videos). I wish they would have answered more questions though, Like more about their 'daily routine' or how it was adjusting to be roommates/dating in such a short time. I'm sure they got plenty of questions and just cherry picked the few they wanted to answer/ the least drama

    I totally agree with this!!! The thing that surprised me about her saying her boyfriend emailed for her, which to me screams that either she doesn't want to get better so she's pushing it off until someone else forces her, like you said. Or she's so far into a spiral/struggling with her mental health that she physically cant help herself which is really concerning (also unlikely if she's making youtube/ going to school) To me if it's the second option she'd be considered a danger to herself.
    Anxiety is totally a valid reason for struggling, but it can take a lot to keep it from becoming an excuse and "feeding into itself", Anxiety is usually one of those issue's where you have to force yourself to be uncomfortable, in order to get better/heal from it, which isn't good if all she has is enablers and people who will coddle her no matter what, it's really damaging and it's no wonder she had a meltdown/spiral when she started school

    I love these sort of videos purely for background noise but i can never just "sit down" and watch them. I'm really surprised she brought up so much about her mental health and patreon issues, while still managing to be so vague about it, if i hadn't seen the patreon video (from lolcow) or didnt keep up with her on here, as a viewer i feel like the patreon stuff would have be sort of "from left field" if you get me? like i understand she can play it off as school is so stressful uwu~~~ I couldnt keep up with it, but like she said in the video her job (youtube) is so flexible that she could work on them during breaks or lunch, or set aside time to do them (i know that is a lot of work but im sure other youtubers put in more effort)
    Another thing about her mental health stuff (as someone who suffers from depression and anxiety) I really do wish she would make another sit-down video about it or just leave it at "I'm struggling with balancing school and mental health issues, i'm okay, it's just overwhelming" and leave it at that, all this vague mentioning reeks of pity points and attention grabbing, in the sense she wants people to ask about it (i used to do that a lot and would get mad when no one asked)
    Also does anyone have any information about the kawai.i trip she's going on, i mean more like background about the trip and what she's expected to do as a "leader" or whatever she is? Is she still going? I understand not being able to bring it up for PR reasons but it seems like something she'd find a way to humble brag/vague mention

    Kinda OT but like I'm really surprised with all of Kennas r/thathappened-esque posts and bragging, she's never done "storytime" videos about them, it would be perfect for her tbh, just her sitting in front of a camera and talking about how amazing she is and how so many strangers agree~~

    The make-up was pretty, but personally no matter how much i loved a show i wouldn't be spending that much on something that's purely packaging and names. Like if more prizes had been similar to the make-up pouch, something exclusive that other people would notice and start a conversation about; to me that would have made it worth it. I don't know about y'all but i don't have people constantly asking me about my make-up or have a chance to bring it up in conversation that often, so this just screams of a "cash-grab"/weeb flex to me.
    Adding to the Cat issue as well; re-watching more of her videos (i like her for background noise) and in her August Favies~~ she mentions how happy Nina is to be settling in to the new house and how she "was meant to be an only child" which to me seems like further proof Jill was planning to get another cat to cope with her mental health, which to me screams of a bad idea. I know when i'm in a depressive episode, i can't even take care of myself, let alone a pet.

    I was watching her newest vid,  and one thing that really jumped out at me was her saying the makeup release was "crafted by the card captor gods" to "give her something to make a video about" Like what happened to her little video book she used to have? Did it get lost in the move? (sarcasm) If she really is struggling for content this badly she should do more school vlogs, or even just post q&a's or those awful tag meme videos.  It feels like her channel is starting to drop down, especially with all her stress and issues with school and "her money issues" aka patreon drama. I wouldn't be surprised if she drops youtube or school soon. I'm betting on school since it won't make her much money

    From my understanding the Hospital comment was her talking about when she was younger and hospitalized for her ED/self-harm?mental health. Unless she's made something else recently about the hospital?

    Her buying the cat from a breeder really bothers me. I could let it go with her mother's allergies, but the fact that she's living on her own, and assuming she wouldn't be moving back in with her parents after school (super unlikely) she wouldn't have to worry about it being an allergy friendly cat, also cats from breeders are super expensive, compared to adopting from a shelter, it just feels like she's throwing more money away. Plus how will her Precious Nina react to lack of attention, on top of a new cat, plus it being a young kitten in addition to the more lacking attention, cause everyone loves a new kitten compared to the older cat

     I feel like the tattoo is another example of her forcing her Aesthetic on someone, if you look at the tattooist's other works she does a lot of black and white and grayscale with pops of colours, it seems Jill wanted the entire thing with colour which seems like it's not the tattooist's style, i agree the lien work and placement seems off almost like the stencil (if she used one) slipped, I know almost nothing about tattoo's though so i could be completely wrong
    Also its interesting how she's calling herself bisexual, at least she's being honest she's attracted to men still, i think he bf is sort of getting sucked into her aesthetic, just by fact of being around her, people tend to at least agree with others/fiegn interest to avoid fighting over silly things (at least i do with my bf) although i feel Jill's trying to manipulate him and will possibly use the "internet fame card at some point to get him to appear in videos possibly

    Yeah I agree, i think Archie is super cute and i love that she includes him in her videos, instead of just keeping him in his cage all day (i assume) but she always seems bothered when he acts like an actual bird instead by screeching or trying to eat stuff she's waving around

    Adding onto the college thing, my college is 100% okay with taking trips as long as you make up the work or understand you might have to retake the class, they treat you like an adult, if you don't have the forethought to plan ahead and can manage trips and school work good job, if not. it's your own fault.
    Also what sort of degree does Jill get when/if she finishes the full program? is it a Bachelor's or just an associated degree?
    I hope we get more school related content, i feel like if she geared her channel towards her "fashion design school" and such it would do really well. I feel sort of disappointed she hasn't taken more advantage of the school thing yet.

    Sort of OT, I was watching her London Haul video, and it really made me sad, she claims to be a designer and loves to watch Annika Victoria ( another youtuber who does a lot of thrift/fashion upcycling) and you'd think jill would try to do something similar, like "i saw this piece at Lazy oaf and tried to recreate it!" or making something inspired by the lazy oaf store/her trip to London but putting her own spin on it, although that would require a lot of effort/work and we all know how she's struggling with school

    I heard she's working with marvel on the Marvel Rising animated movie thats coming out. She's playing Gwen Stacy/Ghost-Spider. I wouldn't be surprised if she went more into voice acting/singing, that way she could keep her younger fan base, so they wouldn't see through her surgeries and shops

    I feel like they're going to hype up a big announcement and it'll just be them deciding to stay in japan another year, I'm sort of surprised they're still there tbh. i mean Sophie can do streaming and cosplay in NI, she doesn't need to be in Japan, it just makes her more money when she can add on 'in japan' and use the cosplay studios they have
