Elyse Willems Is A Role Model And We Need To Admit That

I am in no way a gamer girl.

As a child, I played Nintendogs, half of Super Mario Sunshine and just about every Animal Crossing game ever released. I've beaten all of two games in my entire life and it took me months to get around to finishing them. I am not a gamer.

With this said, I have somehow grown quite fond of the video game YouTube channel Funhaus -- more so, their editor Elyse Willems.

If you watch some of Funhaus' content, it's easy to see what makes Elyse a likable person. She's able to control the moment with her wits and humor, and make videos extremely memorable, just by being herself. She really stands out from the male dominant group she works with, but she seems to fit in so perfectly.

In such a short time of watching Funhaus and growing to love Elyse Willems, I grew to view her as a role model.

It's not a surprise that Elyse is an incredibly funny person. There are close to 15 videos on YouTube which are just compilations of some of her funniest moments.

If I could have Elyse's humor, I would take it in a heartbeat. I could only dream of being as funny as she is.

Elyse is able to make some really weird jokes and be totally out-there, but everyone loves her for it. It's a part of who she is and it's celebrated by fans.

Elyse is able to stand out not just for her humor, but her field. It's not a shock that the field of gaming is dominated by men, and yet she's so successful.

Rooster Teeth -- the parent company of Funhaus -- is a large and well-known name within the video game community. They have several Youtube channels, most of which revolve around gaming. Elyse being a part of one of those channels, and already a being a very stand-out character is pretty recognizable.

There is a weird trend among female video game streamers where they sexualize themselves to get money and views. It means a lot of female gamers are being taken less seriously.

This isn't the case for Elyse.

Elyse continues to stay genuine and be known, simply for being herself. She catches the eye of anyone who watches and never pulls things just for the sake of attention.

Elyse Willems is a gem.

She is funny, beautiful, empowering, and true to herself. She cares for her friends, her husband and let's not forget, the cutest dog ever, Benson.

Elyse Willems is the woman I strive to be in life, and should be a role model for women everywhere. Her confidence and liveliness has the power to inspire. She is one powerhouse of a gal.

Here's to you Elyse: thank you for being you.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
