I found this wonderful charismatic persona on YouTube (BookTube variation). Of course, I found him due to people who are capable of noticing these wonderful gem channels, for I myself am a little lame about it… So, it’s more like, they found him, and showed him to me.
Peter is American, married to a wonderful man, with a bunch of dogs. A son of an alcoholic mother he himself fought, and won against his own addictions, and today we can watch him on four channels, where he actively posts every day! I mostly love leaving his longest vlogs on, even if I already watched it, to play in the background while I do home chores. Feels like having a friend around, since he’s the kind who still wishes to find more people, friends, and all of mine live very far away, so it makes sense to watch a “friend” (who, in this case, doesn’t know you even) on their vlogs. Yes, I’m a bit weird.

I really enjoy simple slice-of-life YouTube channels, vlogs, or just people with great personalities. And YouTube recommended was been real kind to me recently! Besides getting a handful of new booktubers to follow, I found this wonderful woman here: Kennie J.D. 켄니제이디
Her channel has good structure, and she makes all kinds of great videos. From beauty stuff, to music, to, my personal favorites, story times. I like Asian cultures in general, but I don’t believe in only taking the good parts from any of the culture, so this is a double win here: she does not sugar coat, and she does speak about the bad things too in every day life in (this case) Korea.
Some time ago, not even that long ago, I think about a month back, when I had spare cash I went ahead and grabbed my pen to paint two loveliest people on YouTube: Simon and Martina from Eat Your Sushi, formerly known as Eat Your Kimchi: [link]; [link2];
I wrote a short letter, thinking these people are flooded with fan mail, I should make it short to not burden them (which, I think, it’s a bit of a mistake, they’re very nice people, they might have appreciated what I cared to say). The most important part were two paintings.
I do paintings as part of my own fundraiser, and just as commissions. But sometimes one just wants to paint, and who better than people that make you smile ❤
As time went by, I started worrying. These are definitely not my best drawings, while I love the colors I managed to put into them, I started dreading the day they open it, and think “who the shit painted this with their nose?!”
AND TODAY WAS THE DAY! If you turn to 6 minutes in the video, they speak of paintings sent by Quinn from Lithuania (they kindly didn’t use the name on the envelope, for which I am grateful) WHICH IS ME, and they said “excellent portraits”!! AAH!! MY FIVE SECONDS OF FAME! ❤
Thank You, Simon and Martina, for being the highlight of my very bad month. I hope you two are forever happy, and never again get any food poisonings, and find lots of new wonderful flavors of chips to try!
