This Is Why You Can't Stop Watching David Dobrik Videos
Start writing a post

I didn't think I'd ever come to this day where I'd admit something like this, but it's gotten pretty bad at this point. If you're a fan of comedy (or even not sometimes) and have at least four minutes and 20 seconds to spare three days a week, these are the videos for you.

Of recent days, I've realized that I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with none other than David Dobrik. I swear it's small, minuscule, barely an obsession, obsession.

Right. Now I feel like I need to explain myself a bit!

I wouldn't say I'm obsessed to the point where I have his tweet notifications turned on or I'm buying all of his merch, but I literally just can't stop watching his videos, it's a problem.

Anybody that's a fan of David Dobrik is a fan of what they call themselves the entire "vlog squad." The vlog squad is combined of probably the most entertaining and fun group of friends you could ever imagine. After David, the rest of the group is primarily made up of Scotty Sire, Toddy Smith, Alex Ernst, Liza Koshy, Zane Hijazi, Corinna Kopf, Heath Hussar, Josh Peck, Jason Nash, Matt King, Kristen McAtee, Erin Gilfoy and Carly Incontro (deep apologies to anyone forgotten!). Most of them have their own YouTube channel as well, all worth checking out as well. Surprisingly (or maybe not) All of them came from Vine when it was still a thing (RIP).

Now, anybody watching his videos has to understand their crude, dry, idiotic sense of humor. But still, it's too addicting to pass up. Fortunately, you have to be able to handle sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes unsettling language amongst the most semi-normal (ish) people you know. I truthfully don't know how one person is able to think of so many pranks, so many jokes, so many bits in one day or even one week to still be funny without coming off as repetitive. Honestly though, as much as I'd think I'd want to be friends with all them, I don't think I could handle a lot of the cruel jokes they pull. If you know, you know!

As shameful as I feel to admit I'm a fan of his vlogs (am I really?), it's almost funny when I'm out in public and I see someone else wearing his merch cause in my head I always think, "Yeah, I watch his videos too." They're straight up just entertainment.

For anyone that thinks you can't make a living off YouTube, yeah I still don't know how. You can watch all these people and all the videos and just think HOW do they make money? But they do and I don't mind one bit as long as I continue to get these vlogs.

So shameless or not, I'm a fan and as long as he continues uploading vlogs, the more I'll continue to keep watching them.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.


Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

If you are dealing with anger issues, please consult your primary care physician, or reach out to Better Help.

Everyone has dealt with anxiety, stress, and even anger at some point in their lives. For some, it's a daily battle with coping anger issues. In fact, it can be brought on by something rather random, or it could even be caused by a highly stressful job where you are dealing with incompetent coworkers and feeling rather under-appreciated. Although life tends to bring along this type of stress that piles on top of the already raging volcano inside, it is best to learn how to live with it in a healthy way.
