A Simple Thank You To Shane Dawson

The real question is who still watches YouTube? Well, actually a lot of people and I’m definitely one of them. I thought the YouTube phase has come and gone but I’m always surprised when people say they watch it too. I have seen plenty of video on YouTube, but there is one youtuber who I have watched since the beginning. Shane Dawson. If you don’t watch his videos, get on our level and I’ll explain why I’ve stuck with him.


Shane is one youtuber who isn’t doing hauls from designer stores or stuff that I can simply not relate to, but rather doing 99 cent store hauls, and that I can relate to. Shane may wear the same shirt in videos, but so do I. Shane has a way of making ridiculous videos but having them say what I was thinking. Shane isn’t afraid to be himself and share his stories online. I have often been self-conscious and being myself is something I’ve struggles with, but by seeing Shane not give a simple fuck gives me the courage to do the same. Shane has struggles and problems in his life as well that he doesn’t like to throw all out there, but when he does, it reassures us that he is doing it to help us. I can only applaud that.

Daily Laughter

I have watched Shane’s videos because they never fail to make me laugh. I would have awful days at school, or stressful days at work, and knowing that I could go home and have a laugh was something I genuinely would look forward to. I still look forward to what DIY or crazy cake video he will share today, because no matter how my day is going, I always can use a laugh. I would bond through laughter with his videos and it made me feel as if I knew him, and having that comfort is nice to have when times are hard. Also, you have to admit that his videos will literally make you pee your pants because he is simply hilarious, even when he is trying the Whopperrito, or playing with a Wubble.


Shane is truly passionate about what he does and you can tell. Shane is passionate about his videos, producing movies, and making us laugh. It’s always cool to see what awesome projects he is working on next, because seeing him happy about them makes me feel like a proud friend of his; standing by him, supporting him through it all. You can also tell he is passionate about his fans as well. I went to his book tour for his most recent book “It Gets Worse” and by him putting in the time to meet with everyone waiting was beyond amazing. Shane cares for his fans, and may joke about at times, but you can truly tell how passionate he is.

Thank you Shane, for getting me to laugh, even when no one else could.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
