Calm Down....

Something that really really annoys me is people. People are irritating creatures. Not all people of course, but there does seem to be a large portion of the population that frequently WRECK MY HEAD. I'm sure most you reading this post, will not fall into this category of people.

The people who I am referring to are EASILY OFFENDED PEOPLE.

If you are a blogger or if you post videos on YouTube, you will totally be able to relate to me, if not...you probably will still be able to relate to me.

As a YouTuber, reading comments on both my own videos, and other peoples videos can at times be completely depressing. People constantly nit pick, and people always find the tiniest thing to have a problem with. What I have noticed is that most, but not all, of these people are AMERICAN. Now, I do not have any problem whatsoever with American people, I know American people, one of my BEST friends is American, I have many AMAZING subscribers who are American and are totally cool and never get offended! It's just a pattern I have noticed. Maybe I notice it more because I am Irish, and the Irish do tend to be a lot more laid back.

I will now proceed to make a short list of the things that i have seen people get offended/annoyed by. The majority of these things will be comments I've noticed on YouTube videos.

Racism -This one is totally understandable
Sexism -Really? Men are always going to be sexist, calm down like.
The way people talk -Who's forcing you to listen...?
People having 'dirty' makeup brushes - Is the brush going anywhere near your face? Didn't think so...
Cursing - Dude, come on like it's 2012
Using products tested on animals - YOU don't have to use the product, it's a personal choice.
Jokes - This is the most common one, seriously get a sense of humour, your life must be shit if you take it that seriously.
Using sunbeds - So what?? She's the one going to get skin cancer, not you!
Getting sent products for free - Are you really trying to tell me that you would say no?
Doing something similar to another YouTuber - Really, how does that affect your life?
Alcohol & Underage drinking - Again, no affect on your life whatsoever, just because you suddenly find out they drink, it doesn't change the person they are.
Smoking - They're going to get cancer NOT you, also does not affect your life.
Partying - I do not even have the words for this one.
Having an opinion different to yours - God forbid!
Religion - Grow the fuck up.
Lying to protect personal info: No comment, see below...

I could go on...but I'd be here all day! I'm just sick of seeing comments under peoples videos saying stupid things like 'I'm unsubscribing because you didn't use heat defence before you straightened your hair'. Yes, someone got bitchy with me on FormSpring before because I wouldn't tell them my real name, I mean come on, it was for PERSONAL SECURITY, I'm sorry I don't want stalkers, I don't want people finding out too much information about me because the internet is a dangerous place which you cannot trust, & I'm sure your life will go on if you don't know my real name, I'd say you'd get over it eventually. Not that it's an issue anymore.

People can take the smallest thing and twist it to make it sound a lot worse than it is, what these people do not think about is that at the end of the day, it's not going to affect their life whether you use sunbeds or not! I really wish these people would stop taking life so seriously, because that's boring.

People tend to put YouTubers on a pedestal and think of them as role models, which is so wrong. YouTubers are normal people. It is not their responsibility to be a role model to you or anyone else.

Also, do not confuse this with my rant videos, they are all in good fun!

I'm not sure if I even managed to say what I wanted to say in this post & I'm not even sure if it makes sense, I just had to let it out.


CALM DOWN!!

Update

Sooooo I've been missing for a month, I'm sorry! Just came on to my blog there and BAM followers! Whaaatt? When I created this blog I never expected followers, I was just doing it for fun and as an extra to my YouTube Channel, thanks though! I know some of you are probably like 'She thinks 28 followers is a lot??' but yes I actually do, because I don't think my blog is the least bit interesting!

So what have I been doing?? Well there was Christmas and then there was socializing and...I've been broke so I can't afford to do my hair and it's a hot mess right now, it's after fading so much that my extensions don't match it and my roots are terrible! Tuesday is payday though so the first thing on my 'to buy list' is of course, hair dye!

Something horrible recently happened in my life also, a brother of one of my best friends died. And he was also a friend to me, I'm not going to go into detail about this, I'm not going to mention any names or anything all I'm going to say is that it was totally unexpected and everyone is still in shock. My heart goes out to my friend and her family. So needless to say since that happened I haven't been in the filming mood!

I did get a new camera for Christmas though and hopefully I will begin filming next week or the week after! My next video will probably be my January Favourites, I'm getting really good with these monthly favourites, well, besides December, because...like...Christmas? Is that a good enough excuse?

So that's all the news I have really, that I can think of anyway...you'd think I'd have more after being gone for a month...but no.

Hope you all had a great January :)
