Youtuber Corey La Barrie

YouTuber Corey La Barrie lost his life on his 25th birthday on May 10, 2020, after getting in a car crash with a drunk driver.

I've been watching Corey on YouTube for years, and when I found out about his death, I was devastated. He's had such a positive impact on every single person he came into contact with, and even though I've never met him, losing him felt personal to me.

My deepest condolences go to his friends and family. I can not imagine what they must be going through at the moment. It took me a long while to accept the fact that he's gone from this world with just a blink of an eye. He's such a happy-go-lucky person, and all of his friends loved him so dearly that his death just doesn't feel real.

A lot of his friends went to social media to express their feelings on the loss, and here's what some of his closest friends had to say:

Kian Lawley

"This doesn't feel real... still can't believe it. Corey, man, u left us too soon. U were the best friend anybody could ever ask for...U were such a fucking good kid. Had the biggest heart and the most contagious laugh. U could walk into any room and everybody would know ur name, u would literally bring the life to the party. U were loved and cherished by so many people and you still are...We spent so much damn time together and at times I felt like we spent too much time together, but now that ur gone, I feel like we didn't get enough. I will never forget all the times we had together. Some of my best life memories are with you."

Harrison Webb

"I was just on the phone to you hours before & my god you sounded so happy, you were making me smile on the other end of the phone 5000 miles away. I keep finding myself laughing about the hilarious memories & secrets we had, and then now writing this I've turned into a right old mess, tears and everything. Like so many people have already said, you really were the best & meant so much to everyone even if they didn't know you that well, but that's how amazing you were with people...Some of my best moments in life have been with you, and they wouldn't have been the best if you weren't there...I'm so glad that we got to meet man, I love you."

Crawford Collins

"Corey, you were my brother/best friend/channel partner and one crazy motherfucker. From the 1st day I met you you've done nothing but push me to be a better person and help me out any chance you had. Anytime I needed help with a video or had no money to call an uber or needed a place to stay you were always the 1st one to help me out and the same would go for any of your friends that needed the same. You are the perfect example of a supportive friend and what everyone is saying about you supports that 1000x over. You always lived life to the fullest... and those memories I will cherish forever... I wish more then anything that we could have accomplished all the big plans that we had for the future. But I take comfort in knowing how many people you impacted positively in such a short time and because of that your legacy will live forever.... You're a legend bro. Love you always"

Jc Caylen

"He had just turned into more than a friend. He was just the type of guy to call family. And I know you've heard this from multiple people, and it's so great seeing it, but there's multiple stories with people saying Corey made them feel like they belonged and that he was never caught up in the LA scene. And he was always real, and he was always the life of the party, and he was always so nice to anyone and everyone. He didn't care about your status. He didn't care about any of that bullshit, and he just loved to have a good time and laugh, and dude, every second he got a chance [he would] always try to make a joke and try to make people laugh... He always made me laugh, and he didn't even have to try. These past couple days, I would look at old videos of him and old pictures and stuff. Not one was boring... Corey, I hope you know you were one of a kind. You were unique."

Franny Arrieta

"Corey... the man who was able to make me smile no matter what, the man who pushed me to be better, the man who lit up everyone's world. You were the big brother I never had. You loved me so unconditionally and had my back through thick and thin. You were the biggest go getter I knew. Once you had your mind set on something nobody could stop you. You inspired me so much. If I was scared to try something new, you would always hold my hand through it all. I'm so lucky to say that I was able to know such an incredible human being like you. You had so much love for everyone and always put your loved ones first before yourself. What I would do to have one last hug, one last laugh with you. You meant the world to me. Nothing will ever be the same without you but I promise I will do everything that I can to keep your legacy and spirit alive with us."

Nezza

"Corey I love you more than you probably knew. You loved everyone around you. And lifted them up any second you could get. You had all our backs and would defend us no matter what. And for that I know we now have you as our guardian angel. You gave the most amazing hugs. I just want to hug you one last time... Your laugh is something I'll never unhear. You were a wild one. Lived life to the absolute fullest. You did what you wanted to make sure life felt good. You'd spend your money however you wanted haha and no one could tell you differently. But even if you didn't have any. You'd still spend it on your friends... I miss you so fucking much. Never did I think I'd be saying bye to one of us so young. We were supposed to grow old together... I know this probably won't get any easier but we'll always celebrate your legacy. And also like you said once, there's no goodbyes in this world, just see ya later."

Corey La Barrie loved each and every one of his friends so dearly, and the same definitely goes back to him. He was always there for his friends whenever they needed him, and he was always there to boost their morale.

Corey didn't deserve to have his life taken at such a young age, but despite the pain that his friends are going through, they try to keep a positive mindset by promising to keep his legacy alive. Bobby Mares posted a video of Corey saying what his legacy in life is, and here's what he said:



Corey's cousin started a GoFundMe for Corey's memorial, and although they've already reached their goal - according to Jc in his YouTube video - Corey's dad is:

"Working towards a lot of things for Corey right now... He is going to build the best memorial for his son, and he deserves it... and through your guys' donations, we're going to do that as a family and it's going to be amazing... Corey's going to be widely known for who he was... and it's going to be beautiful."

If you could, please donate whatever you can to Corey's go fund me for his memorial here, but if not, at least try to live your life full of "oh well's" instead of "what if's," not only to continue Corey's legacy but also because it's such a great perspective on life.

Corey, you will be missed dearly by so many. Rest in peace.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it).

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).

Netflix

"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
