Draw My Life: Simon’s Story

April 18, 2013

So, writing a blog post for this might be a bit awkward. I’m not sure how to really elaborate or to give any different ideas, which is what we usually do in our blog posts. We use the video as a springboard for different ideas, but here in this post I didn’t really discuss any ideas. It was just me telling stories about myself in video animation format. I guess what I can say is some extra information, maybe? The video was long and there were some things that we had to cut out to make it of somewhat reasonable length.

My brother and sister: I mentioned them briefly. I’ll talk more about them here. My brother’s name is Slavek. He has two kids, Shanice, who is now 20, and Therren, who’s 15. Shanice is half-Spanish (I’m pretty sure!) while Therren is half-Jamaican (I’m pretty sure as well!). I’m a bad uncle. I was really close with them when I was younger and they were first born. This was before my two years of university isolation. I haven’t really gotten that much closer with them since, but I know that when I see them when I come back to Canada I miss them dearly.

My sister’s name is Marta. She’s married to Richard. They have two beautiful kids, Ethan and Maya, who are also half-Jamaican. We have a very multicultural family :D I’m Maya’s godfather, but I’m terrible at it. I’ve been away from the family since I’ve been married and I haven’t had the chance to see her grow up. Ethan I spent some time with when he was first born, before I became hermitted, but afterwards it’s pretty much the same as with my other niece and nephew.

I’m closest with my parents. I speak with them once a week on FaceTime. I talked about it briefly in the video how thankful I am for all they did for us. One part I had to cut out because I’d just sob through the whole thing is that, when I was a teenager, going through my punk fake-hardcore giant-asshole phase, I was terrible to them. Just terrible. They won’t tell the story that way. They’ll say that I was an angel, but I remember how mean I was to them, how rude and inconsiderate I was to them, how I mistreated them. It’s one of my most shameful times of my life and I feel terrible for being such a bad kid. It’s one of the things that scares me the most if I ever were to be a father myself: my parents were nothing but loving and supportive of me, and I repaid them terribly back then. What if my kids were to do the same? It’d be karma. I’d accept it as divine justice, but I just couldn’t imagine surviving it, not only for my own sake, but because it’d be a constant reminder of how bad I was back then. I’m a better son now, but I’ll never forget how great my parents were for me.

Martina’s awesome: I can’t do justice to talking about her in a video or a blog post. She has something that I just haven’t seen in anyone before. There’s a purity of spirit in her, a freedom from the shades of adulthood, that you can’t quite explain. It’s like a child’s innocence, the way they find pleasure in running through fields and playing with bubbles and petting caterpillars, but it’s without the ignorance associated with childhood. She’s exceptionally smart and capable: she’s witnessed some of the shittiness of the world and of human nature, and has still maintained her joy for life. I don’t know how to explain it. She’s not a perfect human being; we all have heavy shadows around us, all of us, but she’s fought hers off more than I’ve ever seen anyone do before. I don’t know how that makes sense in writing. Sorry if it doesn’t.

I just realized that most of this blog post was about my family and friends, and about my difficulties in connecting with others. It’s odd, then, that I do so much stuff online. I’m not good at connecting in person; I’m better at connecting online. I’ve spoken with more people online here, in the comment section to this site, than I have with some of my own family and friends. Thanks, guise, for being so Nasty and chatting with me from time to time. I really appreciate it.

Martina’s planning her Draw My Life video now as well, and should get to filming it soon. You’ll see it next week!

  1. Hi everyone, you know we did some DML too. Well we are proud about our corporate one like this one Draw my life but maybe you’d prefer this one about Amélie Poulain . Let us know what you thought about it.

    Awwwww. Adorable! But holy asfsakfvd!!! You lived in a haunted house!?!! That’s craaaay.
    Ermmmmm, I especially love your tribute to your parents. I, too, was a horrible daughter at times and took the things my parents afforded me for granted. I have so much more respect for them now that I’m older and on my own. They were so right when they said “One day you’ll understand.” Cute story about you and Martina, as well. I love that you two are really best friends first. That’s a great way to look at marriage and very much how my grandparents operate in their marriage too. Outta da friendzone. Thanks for sharing :)

  6. I’ve always wanted to be friends with Simon since I first started watching. I always thought he would be an awesome guy to hang out with and joke around with. After this I just wish I could be his friend more. You are one cool cat Simon, I’m glad you and Martina have be open enough to share your lives with the rest of us.

    Simon – I only can say thank you for sharing your story. Such a moving story in a compact video. You also inspired me that it is possible to make white board animation despite not being an expert!! It gives me courage! You are pioneering – learning by doing and expanding the scope your capabilities. I admire how you overcome all the hardest times and bloom so brightly and fantastically like this! Lots of nasty force for you guise! :D

  11. Simon, you are seriously one of the most humble people I know (or know of at least). I’m very use to seeing a super happy silly you and it was nice to see you stripped down. God, I wanted to hug you during this video and take Meemers away from the dry erase board. Gosh, he loves being a part of the action. Reading the part about your parents, I started getting teary and then I started bawling when I remembered the horrible things I’ve done to my parents. I can’t wait to see Martina’s though I’m worried that I’ll end up just having this need to hug you both and be like, “you precious babies, let me comfort you!”

  12. One reason I really like these videos is that they are a reminder that many, many people have some very significant things happen in their lives that makes them who they are, AND that just because we see a happy smiling face now doesn’t mean it was always this way. We always tend to think we’re alone, that nobody understands us or experiences the same things we do. And yet, while each of our experiences is uniquely ours, there are strong similarities to others experiences and those similarities bring us together and make us closer.

    I was very depressed in college and had no direction or purpose or goal. As graduation came closer, I got panicky and broke down. I was scared about the future and while the idea of coming to Korea and teaching English was put to me several times, I immediately said no out of fear of the unknown. It was seriously after watching your videos that I became confident to take the plunge. You guys did videos on the little things. Sure, culture shock comes from big and bright things like the language barrier or taking your shoes off in buildings, but it was the videos on the little everyday things we take for granted like throwing your toilet paper in the trash can and not the toilet, or how to use a rice cooker or a washing machine that helped me. It was your attention to such tiny details that put my mind (and I’m sure other’s minds) at ease and I knew it was going to be the right thing to do.

    I know you guys are both SUPER busy and all, but if you EVER get down to Gwangju, I’d love to take you guys out for some grub somewhere as a thank you for keeping me sane! If not, keep doing what you’re doing and good luck!

  13. cried watching the video, cried reading the blog post, and cried reading some of the comments here too! glad I’m not the only one though, haha. MY FEELS. And Simon, the paragraph on Martina here was perfect, I loved it. described here beautifully, and I can definitely see what you mean, even if I haven’t met her (your English skills and metaphors were showing. loved everything about that paragraph. I can feel your love. (makes me feel forever alone though hahah)).

  15. I think that it’s because of seeing your relationship with Martina, seeing how well you two get along, how much you love each other, I have kind of been spoiled into the idea that THAT is the kind of relationship I want. My friend once said “You should feel lucky to be single right now. Being in a relationship can be straining.” I told him “They aren’t supposed to be straining.” And then I showed him the two of you. He even said you two were so alike, and definitely meant for each other.

  16. awww….. Simon!!!! this was really touching and you really are the sweetest guy ever!! I’m sorry you had to struggle in your Early life, but I’m really envious of your relationship with Martina! what you guys have is what i wish i would have! I think it’s amazing…. and i am so happy for you that things turned out to be pretty good for you in the end ^_-

  23. Hmm this might sound weird but I think there is a Simon in all of us if that makes sense. Having a hard time in high school, not knowing how to connect with people. Well actually I’m more like Martina, loving Asian culture and being goth. Hm I guess a little of both. I can connect with you guys b/c I can relate to the both of you. I hope I get to live out my dream like you guys, and help people and unite people all around the world.

  27. Simon I really wish you could answer my question!! I want to go teach English in Korea, that’s actually my life plan. It’s my dream. I know nothing is perfect in life, but that’s really what I want to do. I know you need to be an English native speaker to teach in Korea. The thing is I’m from Montreal, and my first language is French. I started learning English before elementary school, and
    now I’m perfectly bilingual. But I still have a slight French accent when I speak English. Do you know any English teachers in Korea who’s first language wasn’t English, and if so, did they have to lie about it in order to get their job?
    Please let me know, this question is killing me!!!

    (By the way I love you guys so much, you really are an inspiration)

  28. I get ya on the whole hermit/socially awkward/connect better online vs in person thing Simon. I have trust issues with people having been rejected and used a lot by others, so it’s difficult for me to begin with people. No worries though! It was interesting to know more of your background. I already knew you were a colorful person, but now even more depth has been added. :) Thanks for wanting to share with us!

    And, I want to thank you for reminding me how wonderful it is to know that you don’t deserve your spouse. Somehow I had got away from that. I have been married for 14 years. Sometimes you need a reminder of how blessed you are.

We have two daughter, they think we’re a bit crazy, well we are! My hubbie is a doctor, a lawyer and a loving guy. I’m a bit like you, not tall, ha! I’m a smurfette but in the part of being more social on the internet than in face to face. I’m very shy, only one close friend! I knew about Kpop three years ago and loved it.

  52. Hey guise!!

    I missed your videos ;_; I haven’t been able to find time to watch your new released videos(just yesterday I barely managed to watch your interview with K.Will but I didn’t comment *I’ll surely will!*)… so when I saw that there’s a “draw my life” video on your page I just had to watch it! I knew it would be a mushy heartwarming one (I love mushy heartwarming videos :3). Can’t wait for Martina’s video. :)

    blog post:

    “I’m a bad uncle. I was really close with them when I was younger and they were first born. This was before my two years of university isolation. I haven’t really gotten that much closer with them since, but I know that when I see them when I come back to Canada I miss them dearly.” You still have time to compensate for that time. (They might be even reading your blog posts and watch your videos) :)

    Oh…Simon… at least you’ve matured and repented and I’m sure that the fact that you’re trying to amend for the things you’ve done make your parents really happy.

    “Sorry if it doesn’t.” No. It does… there are not many people that get to old age with some sanity in them…

    video:

    Meeeemsss!!!

    05:13 yeah…. friends…

    That was one of the most awesome “Draw My Life” videos! You have some nice drawings :) I hope your life experience and video will have the power to change lives for the better Simon :)

    I don’t know why some people get born in the most difficult environments and never get out of it…. just thinking about these kind of people I consider myself really blessed and lucky to find friends that last forever (even after not meeting with them for a couple of months when we get together it’s just like we weren’t even apart… of course I miss them but when you’re so busy you can’t help it…) and I met them at pure coincidence… I didn’t even try to make friends because I was a total unsocial freak in middle school and almost all highschool…

    Since I met my best friends I’ve started to not take things for granted and since I met you guise(EYK, Nasties) even more. I know that nothing comes in life for free. NOTHING!!! and that all things happen for a reason so when something good(no matter the size of it) happens in your life take a moment to reflect upon it and don’t let it slide like it’s nothing…

    Big mushy Thank You! ;______;

    I'm afraid of change and trying new things, but once I got to college 4 years ago I tried to keep myself open to new possibilities and opportunities, the first being moving from New Jersey to South Carolina for school. At first it was hard, but I tried to look at it as finally doing something new and different. And once I found you guys about a year and a half ago and seen all that you have done, I started to inspired to get out there and experience and do new things. You guys are amazing <3

My eldest brother didn’t grow up with us but I don’t seem him as seperate or half anything. In fact lol he’s the sibling I love most. I could never do a draw my life, people would be crying puddles left and right, even with my humorous nature. Your Draw My Life was really awesome, and that photo bomber Meemers is priceless.

As cliche as it sounds, your story proves there is always a silver lining to every cloud and I’m glad you have found happiness with Martina and are living your lives to the fullest. It means there is hope…hope that everyone can find their slice of happiness. Thank you for giving us hope and for sharing!!!

  71. Simon, this was incredible. The pattern you described-smart kid, school, friends, friends screw you over-become hermit, college hermit, etc. was so similar to my life! I still have a tendency to be hermit like, but my husband helps me to be social. I feel the same way about my husband that you do about Martina. Maybe that’s because of what you have been through, but I totally relate to the, “I tricked you into marrying me, mwahahaha!”. Thank you so much for sharing! We love you to begin with, but now even more! Yes, this story is a tear jerker.

  77. @simonandmartina:disqus Simon, thanks for sharing your story with us. From your videos I always thought you were the crazy funny quirky type but now we understand why you’re also really smart, introverted, bookish and cheesy husband to Martina. It’s unbelievable how one person can turn one’s life around huh? I’m really happy you got to know Martina and she makes everyday better for you. I’m really excited to watch Martina’s side of the story. Maybe in the future Soo Zee and Leigh can share theirs too.

  109. Great story simon, was really interesting to see.

    I have some similarities in my life. I’ve been pretty much living like a hermit for a few years now and am looking to expand my horizon and maybe meet some more friends and see more of the world. Just wish I had gotten my college degree so I could at least look at getting a job somewhere.

    And that sucks about your friends. I lost a ton of friends in my life and now basically only have one good friend that I see on a regular basis. Also one of the reasons I want to spread my wings and get out there. I am just very socially awkward which makes it hard. And I am far from being a teenager at 31 so I can’t even use that as an excuse.

    But yeah I really liked your story and am looking forward to hearing Martina’s version

  113. Simon! I can relate to you about the whole mistreating your parents thing.

    I had a horrendous time at school, from about when I just started comprehensive school to when I was about 14. I was bullied, the teachers made me feel inferior and all in all I had a horrible time.
    Home for me was the only place where I felt safe, it was the only place where I wasn’t made to feel like the scum of the earth. So in a way it was the only place I could feel in power and as a result of this I treated my parents like sh*t.

    I was almost like those problem kids you see on Maury. I swore to them; I threatened to turn the house over; I even came really close to striking my mother on numerous occasions.

    Writing this out I feel absolutely disgusted with myself. And it wasn’t until I had to move schools that I stopped treating my parents that way. I am forever in debt to my parents for never turning back on me, for never failing to offer me help even during the times where I threatened to do bad things. They continued to love their daughter, to offer help with her homework, to take her on holiday. They never turned their backs on me.
    I hope one day I can be half the parent they were and I am forever sorry to them and I will never stop loving them.

    Anyways, enough about me. I really enjoyed your video simon :) you even made me tear up on occasions. I can’t wait for Martina’s ^^

  114. Totally loved the part when u talk about escaping from ur haunted house. that’s what ppl call common sense! i’m bit of envious about ur relationship. i wish that mine will be so good too. I’m happy that u have now nice ppl around u:)
    anyway, u are great. i’m a fangirl of you, guise. Before when I talked to my friend I was like: “oh, my God! have u seen the video where GD is.. blah blah” and now I’m like: “oh, I know that mv, EYK talked about it. Wanna know what they said? Blah, blah…” And the story ‘Worst Mistake in Korea’ – they really loved it (not that my friends had any option to say sth different…:P). I even create an account to follow u on twitter (sth what I didn’t do for gd)! Oh, well, maybe it was because I really wanted one of the CDs that u give away…
    ekhm, what I wanted to ask is do u have any interest in polish book? Poems or novels? And if yes, what type, I mean, genre or writer do u like? Because I was thinking about sending u a package and I’d like to know if keen on stuff like that. And is there anything you’d like to send you from Poland?

    btw, thx for introducing me to more korean artists and culture^^

  115. Thank you for sharing Simon! It was really inspiring… and it’s weird that our lives were playing out so close sometimes, especially when you lived in Windsor — I am pretty sure I was in the Detroit Metro at that time.

    I would have no idea that you slacked off in high school but turned everything around in the end. I also totally understand going to college and feeling dumb. I was a straight A student in high school with barely any effort and then I went to the University of Michigan…. my confidence took a real blow, especially from my TA in my Intro to Sociology class who in more eloquent words basically called me a dumbass. I actually had been interested in majoring in Sociology since I did well on my exams but I let my TA talk me out of it.

    Oh well, I lasted four years at U-M but got a great sales job right before my last semester so I tried to work full-time and go to school with a full load and I failed two classes :-/ I chose to stick with my sales job and didn’t finish my degree until ten years later, Dec 2012… but hey, I did it :D Now I am still trying to figure out things at 32 but I am a much better student than I was 10 years ago :)

    I wish I could be in at least shoes similar to yours… I would love to be in Korea or to make a career out of learning, educating and promoting Korea. But we have a cheap home in a beautiful area and my fiance is starting to make a good money with his @home job so I have to see how things play out and hopefully get a job worthy of a Bachelor’s from the University of Michigan.

  116. Simoooon….hearing you talk about Martina like that is SO SWEET! *tears up* And about your parents in the blog post? I cried!!

  117. Hey Simon, thanks for this insight into your life before EYK. It was so moving that I and sooooo many others ended up in tears, and also very encouraging. The section in the blog about Martina is so amazing, and I wish I can someday find the piece that completes me just as Martina completes you! Can’t wait until next week for Martina’s half of the story, and I love you guise! <3

    (Also, could you do a TL;DR on skinship in Korea after Martina's Draw My Life? I get really confused about what is and isn't appropriate and to what level is it okay between a guy and a girl that aren't dating or related? My comment would probably never be seen on YT so I figured I may as well try on here too… Thank you muchly <3)

  121. This was truly inspiring :) In High School I was a loner too, and I pretty much am now too. I spend my days studying or sitting at home. All my friends dropped me after graduating and I’m not good at making new friends. I’ve always wanted to visit Korea but don’t know how I can. I have no money! I couldn’t be an English teacher there, well because I hate English!! I want to make some Korean friends but I don’t know how to either. The internet is filled with a lot of fake people so I’m not one to go on chat sites or add random people.. I think that would be weird..and maybe creep them out. Well anyways your video is AWESOME and I’m ready for Martina’s :)

We all had our bad times, and sometimes when you think it’s finally over, the past returns and gives you more problems. (It’s happening to me right now). But I don’t really wanna talk about my life in one comment. Even because I hope to meet you guys someday (hopefully next summer lol) and to thank you for let me believe in all the dreams I was afraid to believe before.
    NOW. EXCUSE ME, but I think I’ll go hide myself for being so cheesy. And meantime I’ll cry.. Just a little.

    4 years ago
  143. Reasons why Simon is just as much the bestest as Martina:

    You make a lot of people have better days just because you’ve posted a video
    You work hard for what you’ve got
    You inspire other people to go live their dreams
    You promote the fact that being married is lovely and about being around your best friend and appreciating them
    You are 100% yourself and you make no apologies for it so you let other people know they are just fine with who they are
    When a difficult situation comes along you work it as a positive no matter how bad
    You’re actually more talented than you know, not many people could do your job
    You
    appreciate all your parents did for you and your family (FYI, I have
    watched a few kids grow from being very young to adults – makes me feel
    old – but EVERY kid has a couple of years when they are ratty to their
    parents. It is a biological thing to make you leave the nest. You
    can’t fight it, it is nature. Don’t feel too bad about how you were to
    your parents because I guarantee what they care about is how you are
    now, which is lovely. Every parent knows they are in for it around the
    teenage years!)

    …and
    a ton of other reasons but this post will get too long but I couldn’t
    let you think you aren’t just as lovely and special as Martina

    Loved the video – it was really, really good – thank you for sharing your life story.

YOU are just perfect the way you are and perfect for Martina, you two are so lucky to have found each other!!!

  145. ;) Simon, I’m glad you got out of the friend zone. SHARE YO STORY. My boyfriend and I met in junior year of college when I had a seriously terrible serious boyfriend of 6 years. I had just transferred and had NO friends. He had a girlfriend of 4 years that I even gave him sexy advice on–in fact the only reason I decided he was “safe” to be friends with (my ex wouldn’t feel threatened by him -_-“) was because he had a serious girlfriend! Nevertheless, a semester later of being study buddies, we were both magically single at the same time…and then not single.

    I always tell guys there is no magical friend zone land where you enter and can’t leave. Chances are, if she’s single, not relationship-phobic (and even if she says she won’t date friends for fear of ruining the relationship–if it’s the right guy, she’ll risk it ;D), and she still won’t date him, it’s because she’s not physically/emotionally attracted to him and that’s that. It’s hard to swallow that someone doesn’t find you attractive inside/outside, but the right person will. And as anyone can see with Simon and Martina, when that happens, it is awesome sauce. Good luck with the ladies, guise.

  149. Two things + my thoughts:
    -You speak like such a gangster because growing up you were pretty much the only white kid you knew. Everyone else was from …. Detroit?! Yeah that’s a really foreign place….

    -You moved to Windsor, Ontario to a SMALL, THREE story apartment?! How is a 3 story apartment small?!?!!

    Anywho, I love the video! Quite amazing to see what your parents went through when they immigrated to Canada. I imagine my great grandparents were a lot like that too…. but probably worse because they had to start off as farmers >.> But still, for your parents to do that in the modern day and age, where things are **hopefully** better off then they were 100 years ago, props to them! Also, January 20th is such an awesome day! It’s been my favourite day ever since…… I WAS BORN. Boo-Yaaahh~!!! I thought that day was all MINE, but each year that I’ve known about you guys I get to see another person happy about the same day, and I actually kind of like it. :) I’ll allow you to share my day with me Simon xD

If you think “hey, this might be a useful thing in the future even though I’m not totally interested in it right now”, go ahead and do it. You might find out that you like that, or you might discover something else along the way.

        I just decided I -probably- want to be a translator, but the school that has a good program for it is in Hawaii ( plus nearby schools teach Chinese / Japanese / Korean! ). I have no money at all ( no jobs here ), so I can’t really move there and pay for everything. I don’t have any degrees or certifications or anything, so I’m staying where I am to go to a local community college and live with my family in the meantime. It sucks! By the time I get a web design certificate I’ll be 27, and if I have enough money by then I might be able to go there… and be 28 or 29 when I’m done. God, I feel old… D:

    • Ha! Because how many people will be able to read that who aren’t Polish? That’s why! Same with my brother: Slawomir. Good luck getting English people to read that out loud!
