    [–] Laura Lee comes back to YouTube JapaneseStudentHaru 1 points ago in BeautyGuruChatter

    I doubt it. Not a lot of fans are going to leave the channel. I’m guessing most of the people who left weren’t the ones watching all of her content anyway.

    [–] Teacher says she was fired for giving zeroes to students who didn't turn in their work JapaneseStudentHaru 0 points ago in news

    No this is about funding. You get funding based on graduation rate. Less kids passing equals less money for kids who actually give a shit about their education

    I genuinely wonder why people don’t like Arby’s lol it seems like such a common perception

    [–] Stuart Little Fact JapaneseStudentHaru 29 points ago in comedyheaven

    Low commitment adoption. Plus he can drive a $30 remote control car and wear doll clothes. Cheap as shit

    [–] AliceintheRabbitHole analyzes the effectiveness of boycotts and asks if outrage actually helps brands become more popular. JapaneseStudentHaru 8 points ago in BeautyGuruChatter

    I think people make decisions based on selfish reasons, including me sometimes. For example, plenty of people can say they won’t buy from KVD anymore, but did many of us in the first place? I never have. I love the aesthetic but the actual makeup is just boring and the only holy grail I’ve seen from her is the tattoo liner and the shade and light, both of which have plenty of dupes. (It’s black eyeliner and brown eyeshadow, it’s everywhere).

    People didn’t boycott tarte because even though a lot of their stuff is boring, people love shape tape way too much. I have a lot of their brushes because they’re sold at a reasonable price and last a long time. I think the drama around their brand died off in a matter of months. Right around the time people ran out of their concealer. Though besides their brushes I haven’t been hyped on them recently. Used to love them too. Got bored I guess.

    Did anyone boycott NARS? I’ve seen some people talking about it, but not really. I’ve never bought from NARS because they’re pricey, but it seems like most of their stuff performs really well and I’m sure people who have gotten used to using it aren’t about to stop.

    Plenty of people boycott Jeffree on this sub. But is it like that in real life? He has 10 million subscribers and I’m sure at least 5 million of those are fans. Some people refer to his liquid lips as their holy grail. However, a lot of his stuff is more on the colorful side and it’s easy to look at his makeup and say “I’d never use most of the shades in that palette anyway” or “I don’t like highlight with glitter/intense highlighter”. So I think because of that a lot of people are able to resist the temptation and boycott the brand.

    So basically, I think it all depends on how easy it is to say “no”. If you’re a natural makeup girl, it would be easy to boycott Jeffree but not so easy to boycott tarte. I rarely see anyone, even on this sub, sacrificing holy grails whenever brand drama comes out. Even brands like lime crime had secret/open stans because of their plushies. And TBH, I’ve never bought from them, but the drama surrounding the brand and the fact that people still couldn’t resist the lipstick had me intrigued, as a consumer. Never pulled the plug. However, I know plenty of people who rejoiced to see her step down as CEO so they could have an excuse to start buying again (even though Doe Deere still makes money from sales).

    Just an observation.

    [–] Jackie Aina responds to new drama regarding Jeffree Star JapaneseStudentHaru 0 points ago in BeautyGuruChatter

    It’s not really a “mastermind plot” we have to acknowledge that he is trying to get followers on YouTube and social media because he wants to be an influencer now. He waited a looong time after these conversations supposedly took place to reveal them. He recently started hanging around Nikita. Plus he hasn’t given any proof yet.

    I know threads on this sub typically are either “I hate Jeffree everything he does is wrong!” Or “I love Jeffree and nothing that he does is wrong”. So it’s really hard to have an objective view of the situation. I’m not gonna pay any mind to it until he drops some evidence. Otherwise, he’s just trying to get views.

    [–] Sarah Therese posts a video about the "10 Things Every Wife Needs To Do For Her Husband" JapaneseStudentHaru 42 points ago in BeautyGuruChatter

    Kind of weird that she’s still like that after being married for 4 years. I’ve been married about as long and I’ve never identified as a wife. Mostly a student and a makeup enthusiast lol

    [–] She looks like she'd kill you in your sleep JapaneseStudentHaru 10 points ago in beholdthemasterrace

    Green eyes? Pshhhh she should be sterilized to make way for the true whites

    At the same time I doubt this much would hurt you. I’ve eaten that much nail polish remover every time I do my nails probably.

    (For the people who will inevitably ask, sometimes I try to remove mistakes with my teeth. It doesn’t work but I try.)

    [–] D.Va fucked anal, (ReelaySFM) [Overwatch] JapaneseStudentHaru 2 points ago in rule34

    Omg I didn’t realize this was supposed to be anal lol

    [–] Iceland has recently proposed a ban on circumcision. How would you feel about this in your own country? JapaneseStudentHaru 2 points ago in AskReddit

    I think a “ban” should have exceptions. I know some guys need a circumcision because of tight foreskin. That’s the only reason I would do it for my kid. I honestly like the look of a circumcised guy because I just didn’t grow up around uncircumcised men. But cosmetic reasons aren’t something I should base a decision like that on. I think if they decide they want to do it later (even though it’ll probably be more inconvenient and painful) then at least that’s their choice and not mine.

    Well TBF bands get money from the merch. Record companies can totally dick them out of a lot of it but it helps them pay the bills still

    [–] My husband (26m) never wears his wedding ring anymore and it makes me (25f) sad. JapaneseStudentHaru 2 points ago in relationships

    My husband’s ring stopped fitting him despite not losing weight as well. Idk why it happens, but some people have swelling in the hands especially if they lift weights.

    I wouldn’t worry about him hiding that you’re married. Neither my husband or I wear our rings because they’re just so expensive and we work in jobs where the rings could easily be broken or lost. You said he wears your necklace. Maybe you two should find something that’s symbolic that you can both wear comfortably.

    [–] My biggest pet peave since I started college. What's your opinion on this? JapaneseStudentHaru 3 points ago in college

    I’m dealing with this right now. My teacher has never answered an email for me and I’ve been emailing her for more than a week. Our midterm is tomorrow and she still hasn’t put it on ProctorU yet. This means I’m 100% paying an extra fee for the exam for short notice. I’ve been emailing her about this for a week. I’ve talked to the DH who said it was taken care of. Obviously it’s not. I’m past the point of a refund for the class but I definitely want one. I feel like this class is a fucking scam. I’m not getting what I paid for.

    Stay the fuck away from ivy tech. This isn’t the first time I’ve had to deal with this shot from them.

    [–] Oh shit. JapaneseStudentHaru 38 points ago in funny

    That’s why you need to do follow ups and testing afterwards. I don’t get why people skip that part. Otherwise you could still be able to have kids

    [–] It’s true though JapaneseStudentHaru 2 points ago in WhitePeopleTwitter

    I really miss getting into books like I used too. I just feel so unmotivated by everything I try to read.

    [–] What do you think we will look back at and think “why?”? JapaneseStudentHaru 176 points ago in muacjdiscussion

    I’m already looking at Nikki tutorials vids and thinking “that’s too much concealer”

    [–] I never knew it was that simple JapaneseStudentHaru 1 points ago in wowthanksimcured

    I grew up in poverty and didn’t eat much. The only thing that helps my appetite is hormones but they make me bloat as well. I don’t want to be unhealthy, but I don’t want a bloated pregnancy belly either. I also don’t want to be hungry all the tine and be obsessed with food. I want a healthy appetite.

    As of now, I eat one meal a day. I don’t get hungry for the rest of the day and I often feel nauseous just thinking of eating anything more. I remember going to the mall a couple of days ago and feeling very hungry (which is rare for me) I went and got Cajun chicken and they really loaded me up). I got veggies as a side. I ate 6 oz worth of the chicken and was full. I forced myself to eat the veggies because water based foods are easier for me. It was still too much. I felt so nauseous after that that I had to sit on the floor in the bathroom and listen to the soothing bathroom sounds to keep me from puking.

    It’s not always an issue, sometimes I get days where I can binge on so much food and my relationship with food stemming from my childhood is not good. I hate wasting, but I often feel mostly full even when I haven’t eaten yet. When I am hungry, the feeling is fleeting. My brain tells my stomach to quit complaining because nothing will come of it I guess. Then, I also think that when there is food I have to eat it all even if I’m not hungry at all. Now that I’m a healthy weight (I even weigh more than I want to) I don’t want to feel that way anymore.

    It’s also a little bit that I’m so used to being 10 pounds or so underweight. I look at myself at 5’6” and 120 lbs and I feel sooooo fat. I gain weight in my stomach mostly. While I want to be healthy, the placement of fat on my body makes me super dissatisfied with myself when I do gain weight. I know I’m not fat. But I just don’t like how I look when I’m not thinner.

    [–] Kids these days... JapaneseStudentHaru 1 points ago in lewronggeneration

    My dad was one of the first people in his town to have internet. He had a huuuuge stack of CD-ROMs

    More than a decade later, they’re still in the computer room of my old house. So many just sitting there.

    People used to covet those things

    [–] Kids these days... JapaneseStudentHaru 7 points ago in lewronggeneration

    They wanted to be able to write the whole thing on the disc for a cool Instagram post
