Why I Love BuzzFeed's Kelsey Darragh

No female comedian dishes it out this real.

Why I Love BuzzFeed's Kelsey Darragh
about.me

BuzzFeed has a wonderfully diverse and hilarious cast who make videos about some of the most relatable topics for millennials. Sure, most of their videos don't contain much intellectual content, but watching them is a guilty pleasure. My favorite cast member by far is Kelsey Darragh, a 5'9" blonde from Florida who is known for two things: drinking like a beast and staying single AF.

One of Kelsey's segments on BuzzFeed is Married vs. Single, in which Kelsey and her co-star Ned Fulmer discuss issues pertaining to married/single life such as hot bodies, weddings, and best first dates. Her independent and bold nature comes through in her commentary, and it's hard not to feel proud to be a single lady when you hear Kelsey Darragh talk. Not to mention, she is beautiful, real, and seems so comfortable in her own skin that I can't help but feel she is best-friend material.

Kelsey has appeared in a number of other skits on BuzzFeed's channels, from "If Netflix And Chill Were Honest" to "When You're A Girl Who Loves Food" to "When Drunk Food Is The Best Part of Going Out". Great stuff, for what girl doesn't love food, getting wasted, and casual hookups.? Oh, and did I mention Kelsey also did sex toy reviews for Playboy? They're PG, but definitely worth it for the laughs.

As funny as Kelsey is, she also has a deeper side. Among the more serious topics Kelsey addresses are the stigma of having bipolar disorder and the concept of female sexual liberation (Kelsey identifies as bisexual). Comedy is the vehicle she employs for discussing difficult issues because in the world of entertainment, comedy is the most comfortable means to get people to listen, react, and sympathize.

My favorite of Kelsey Darragh's projects is her show Am I Doing This Right? in which she tackles adulting in the most clueless, drunk way possible. She shotguns beers and chugs wine on the regular, and drags her two cameramen friends along with her camping in the wilderness, interviewing Trump supporters, and house-hunting. One magical moment involved her sunbathing on the beach as two hunky men fanned her with palm fronds.

That being said, Kelsey is that wild friend who we can always trust to be real with us. I shamelessly binge her videos while doing cardio, and I honestly could think of no better way to spend that time. So, if you ever have some free time on your hands, give her channel some views, aight?

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
