Draw My Life - Simon's Story

  Views 569,800


7 years ago

So, for this week's TL;DR I thought I'd do a Draw My Life video. We couldn't do ours together, Martina and I, because that would be WAY TOO DIFFICULT. Martina's working on her video now, and it should be up next week. It'll be a lot more fun than my video, of course, because she's a lot cooler than I am :D
Anyhow, here's my story, about where I'm from, and what made me the kind of person I am today. Sorry if this became a bit heavy at times. I hope you didn't find it too boring.
I wrote some more in our blog post on our site. I didn't talk much about my brother and sister and parents, so I mention them more over there, if you're interested in that kind of thing. Check it out!

The moral to the story is: There is no plan. And if you have made a plan, it will change.

Lmmaaao! Simon with CORNROWS! Lorrrrd! He was hanging with the Caribbeans. Simon lived a rough life otherwise.

As late as this is, I have to type this. I relate so much regarding acting as a social outcast due to mistrust from childhood and poor social skills.Heck, I'm still doing it(guilty) except I'm not a good student. Watching this video always fills me with hope and determination because if you were able to bounce back from everything you went through, I can too. Going away to a diff. university just to start anew soon, I will try to hold hope that things will turn out well.

watching this for the 5th time, I realize that I have the almost exact same handwriting as Simon, when it comes to curves and such, in the writing.

Sometimes I feel bad for Martina because everyone is like "Awww, Simon, you are such a good husband!" Martina must feel neglected. But MARTINA, WE ALL LOVE YOU BOTH THE SAME! YOU ARE AN AMAZING WOMAN! It's just not common to have an amazing husband (although I was lucky in that aspect as well) and we also only see what's on camera. Also as you might have noticed it's mostly women who express how great Simon is because they wished they had such a great man as well. I think that you have Simon is also a big compliment for you as well!

God. First time I’ve seen this and the way the two of you have grown into yourselves but together is a wonder. My husband and I have been married for 34 years and we could learn from you two. Love your story. ♥️ Amazing

It's amazing how you turned it around and are so well-read now. I came back here and now I recall from your latest video that you're reading Sapiens, Homo Deus and Steven Pinker- all very popular psychological non fiction and its awesome!!

I thought I heard you mention Windsor in the stream the other day! I was born there. I also lived in a shitty apartment on Wyandotte as well. Such a small world. Holy shitballs eh?

Almost all of these comments are about when in the video Simon said “And her name was Martina” but to be honest like if you didn’t feel the feels of the feely feels you lying or you heartless.

I have recently discovered this channel and I'm really touched by your guys relationship, talk about relationship goals.. And The part where you said you don't deserve her made me sad, I don't know you but I don't think that's true, it's clear to see in these videos how happy you make each other. So, I see this video is a few years old.. But I hope you don't feel that way any more!

Okay I need someone to explain this to me, why did his parents leave poland and thought in canada it would be better for their kids? They had awesome jobs at poland, and when they came to canada they didn't even speak the language, had to clean houses and deliver pizza (nothing wrong with that, but I think you understand what I mean) and the kids grew up poor. I'm not trying to be mean, I just want to understand. Was it bad in poland around that time? Anyone can help me with this?

I've been with my boyfriend for 5 and a half years. We started dating on March 28th as well. I think our relationship is over, and I don't know what to do right now. I just dream that one day I can find my life partner as you have. Things are worse right now, I'm just hoping with everything I have that it will get better. You guys are amazing and I love you both.
