Emma prefers to share her thoughts with a microphone rather than a physical human being, so thank god she has a podcast. Recorded from the comfort of her bed, Emma talks at length about whatever is on her mind every week. Anything really does go on this podcast. Sometimes philosophy, sometimes a random story from 10 years ago, sometimes advice, and sometimes nothing at all. You never know what you are going to get, but that’s what keeps it interesting. New episodes every Thursday.

This week Emma is pondering life’s most difficult questions in a game of Would You Rather? Debating topics like being cheated on or being the one cheating, having people show up at your wedding or funeral, joining a sorority or a content house, and many more.

When I tell you I haven't been awake past 11:00 PM in like 6 months, I have not been awake past 11:00 PM in like 6 months. OK? I have been going to bed. At approximately 10:30 PM every night. For months. And it's a part of my journey into becoming. A mom. Although I don't have any children. I'm slowly but surely becoming a mom, right? I'm getting into cooking. I'm getting into reading books, I'm getting into going on walks. I'm. Doing the whole thing, doing the whole mom thing I've been. Oh my God, I've been going to the farmers market. Like something's up with me. Like I'm, I'm going, I'm turning mommy mode, like, quickly. It's freaking me out. I'm like 19. I'm about to be 20 in like a week. And I already feel like a mom. But I love it. I love it. I wouldn't want it any other way. But I'm awake at midnight right now, and I think it's because I drank a lot of coffee this afternoon because I own a coffee company. Chamberlain coffee. Go check it out if you don't know what it is. Or you haven't tried it. Chamberlain coffee becom. It is my beloved coffee company, and I'd love for you to try it, but anyway, I was doing it. Taste test of some new blends that. Will be coming. At some point. And I taste tested like 5 different blends of coffee. And. By the end, I was a complete mess. OK, a complete mess. I was just like freaking out. And now it's midnight and I'm awake, and I should have known that this was going to happen. But here we are. What are we going to do? You know what I mean. I've probably had like eight shots of espresso today. And I also had a MACHA. Ohh I had two machas. Holy ****. No wonder I'm awake guys. Don't do what I'm doing right now. I've had so much caffeine today, like it's probably unsafe, but anyway. Welcome back to anything goes. I'm Emma Chamberlain, your host. I hope you're having an amazing day. I'm drinking water. Not a caffeinated drink because we're done with that for the day. Honestly, might even take the day off of caffeine tomorrow. Because I think I have enough caffeine in my body to last me for, like, at least the rest of the week. Anyway, what are we talking about today? So. One of you guys tweeted at me and was like Emma, you should do a would you rather where basically you guys tweet at me? On the Twitter at AG podcast. And you tweeted me would you rathers? And then I answer them and get all philosophical and such. It's really hard to laugh, like fake laugh at my own jokes when nobody else is there with me to like fake laugh with me. Like I'm just sitting on the floor in my closet by myself right now recording this. And so like me fake laughing at. My own joke, it just is. It just doesn't land as well as it does when I'm with other people. So now I'm just uncomfortable. And you probably are too. So sorry about that. But we're going to do a fun little. Would you rather I asked you guys to send them over? You did, because you guys are the best and we're just going to get into it. And I'm going to try to make my answers as philosophical as possible so that this is at least relatively interesting. Feel free to tweet at me your answers. And share your opinions again the Twitters at AG Podcast I love to interact with y'all I love to. Make this a open conversation, so feel free to tweet at me what you would answer. As well. OK, let's get into it. All right, somebody said. When someone says. I have good and bad news. What would you rather hear first? Every time somebody comes to me and says I have good and bad news, I always say tell me the bad news first. Always because I like to get the ****** stuff out of the way. Simple as that. I also won't be able to enjoy the good news. Because I'll be too anxious about what the bad news is if I don't just get the bad news out of the way. You see what I'm saying? I need to get the bad news out of the way to even remotely enjoy the good news. And it's just simply how my brain works. So. Always want to hear the bad news first. Somebody said, would you rather delete your Instagram account or your YouTube account? That is extremely easy. I would delete ezi. That's extremely easy. I would delete my Instagram before I delete my YouTube. My reasoning for that is that Instagram is virtually pointless. If you think about the concept of taking an Instagram photo, it's pretty. Traumatizing. Like every time I think about the action of taking an Instagram photo, I have a full ego death. Like, it's humiliating if you really think about it and listen, I think Instagram is fun. I think it can be creative. I think it can be a great platform. I scroll on it. I look through it. I see what people are up to. I'm guilty. I try not to, but listen, I'm guilty just like the rest of us. And and I think Instagram can be fun, but I also think it can be extremely negative and it can cause you to compare yourself to everybody and. Get this false sense of reality? That's. Awful, and I've talked about that enough on this podcast so I won't get into it more now, but I think Instagram can go negative way quicker than YouTube. Whereas YouTube is nice because it's like intimate, you know what I'm saying? It's long form content where. You get to kind of hang out with somebody or you get to learn something or. Whatever. Like it's a lot more educational. It's a lot more useful, it's a lot more intimate. So my and I and I personally prefer making YouTube videos over taking Instagram photos, although I do like both for different reasons. But I'd say at the end of the day, like making YouTube videos better. Somebody said, would you rather lose the ability to read or lose the ability to speak? Oh, that's really tough. I would say I would rather lose the ability to read. Because. I feel like that would be easier to adjust to, right? I could have somebody around me at all times. That could either translate things to me and read them to me. Or I could just and I could still listen to audiobooks and stuff like that. Whereas like my ability to speak is very, very important to me. As much as you know the ability to read is important, my ability to speak is even more important because I love talking and I have, as some might call a blabber mouth and I talk a lot. Not as much anymore. I feel like as I'm getting older I talk a lot less, which is interesting. I used to talk a lot more like you could not shut my *** up, like I just was ******* talking at 100 mph 24 hours a day when I was a kid. But now that I'm older I feel like I'm learning that silence is not so bad. I feel less of a need to fill every awkward silence with some sort of blabber out of my mouth. But regardless, my ability to speak is very important to me. I love having. Conversations with people and like losing that would be traumatizing. Whereas losing my ability to read I could still. Figure out ways around that you know. Somebody said. Would you rather get to see yourself from the perspective of others? Or hear every bad conversation about you. Well, for me personally, there's probably been a more than average amount of negative conversations about me considering my presence on the Internet, and I think that if I had to hear all of those, I would. Vaporize into thin air and just disappear and die, unfortunately, so I'd rather see myself from the perspective of others. And in fact, I've actually always been curious about this, like what I look like. To somebody who's just, like, walking up to me, like, what do I look like when I'm just, like, walking around? And the crazy part about it is that I'll never know, and neither will you. You'll never know what you look like from the point of view. Of somebody who's experiencing your physical body in front of them. You know what I'm saying? Like you can only look in a mirror. You can only look in your phone camera. You can only look at a photo of yourself. You'll never fully know what it's like to be in your own presence, and I'm genuinely so curious about what that looks like. I pray every day, and I manifest every day, that I look much better in person as a physical human being than I do in the mirror or in photos. And the only way to know for sure would be is if I could experience it, which I never will be able to. Therefore I'll never know for sure. I would really, really not want to hear every negative conversation that's ever been said about me. In fact, I avoid. Hearing about that at all costs, even if I know somebody's talking **** about me, I will avoid hearing what they said or finding out what they said because I don't want to know. I avoid. Information that's going to harm me at as much as possible. Somebody said, would you rather be gossiped about or never talked about it all definitely gossiped about because I think that. Not being talked about at all means that you're not doing anything of substance or of importance necessarily. And. In order to accomplish something. Or do something admirable, or do something. That has in effect. That's positive you you you're bound to get criticism and you're bound to be gossiped about. Like? It's just inevitable. It's just a part of it. It's like. Even if you're the best person on the planet and you're doing amazing things, there's still gonna be somebody who's gossiping about you because you are the topic of conversation. Because you're doing something impactful, you know? And even if you're doing the best job in an amazing, amazing thing, you're still going to be gossiped about occasionally. It's just part of it. So I would choose to be gossiped about instead of not gossiped about at all. Somebody said would you rather lose the ability to cry or cry every day for 20 minutes? Well babe, I already cry every day for 20 minutes, so nothing would really change. I'm kidding. Definitely cry every day for 20 minutes because I think crying is so important. I'm a firm believer in crying. I go through phases where I don't need to cry. Like last month I maybe cried once or twice. This month I've cried probably five or six times. Like it just varies every month, you know? Umm. But. I think crying is so important and it feels good and. You need to cry to release that pent up emotion and so I would never deny myself of that. And you know, there are moments when you need to cry, and so not being able to cry at all would be pretty tragic. I have some friends and family members who wear contacts, and honestly, I can't imagine how much of a pain it must be to always have to go to the eye doctor, go in for unnecessary tests. When you know that your prescription hasn't changed. It's so time-consuming and so stressful. I truly can't imagine one 800 contacts has been making people's lives so much easier and delivering contact lenses for 27 years. They make getting contacts super fast and easy. Even if you have a really strong prescription, all you have to do is order the same contacts you would get from your doctor. Just look on the side of your contacts box for that info. You can order online, over the phone, or with their app, and they ship them fast and free to your home. You can even renew your prescription. Mine using their express exam and there are so many benefits to going through one 800 contacts. They guarantee if you find your contacts at a lower price elsewhere, they'll beat it. And I mean, who doesn't like to save a little money? Speaking of which, new customers can get extra discounts when you check out their site, and their 24/7 customer support is so helpful that it's award-winning. So let one 800 contacts get you the contact lenses you need. Order online at one 800 contacts. Dot com. Somebody said would you rather be 10 years older or four years younger? This one's really tough. Because if I was ten years older, I'd be 30, and if I was four years younger I would be 16. I'm going to have to say I'd rather be 10 years older, and here's why. I would not want to be a 16 year old right now at all. In the age of the Internet. That we're in right now, I I would not want to be 16 because when I was 16 I was extremely vulnerable. I was very concerned about what other people thought about me. I was very concerned about fitting in much more than I am now and. When I was 16, luckily the Internet was not even remotely what it is today like. Today, the Internet is even more. Prevalent in our day-to-day lives and it's even more competitive and even more fake it. It's like it. It seems to get more fake every single day. You know what I mean? And. If I was 16 right now, I don't know how I'd handle it. Like I don't think I would handle it very well because. I feel like I'm in a pretty good place in my life right now and it still gets to me. But if I was 16 and more vulnerable, who knows? The effects that it would have on me, I think it's a better time to be a 30 year old right now. Than it is to be. A 16 year old right now. And that might not necessarily be true, but just maybe for me personally, I just don't think that my 16 year old self would deal with the state of this world right now very well, whereas me as a 30 year old I think would be able to handle the Internet and be able to handle. The trials and tribulations of life much better, you know, and so I'd I'd much rather be in that place and be 30 then to be dealing with. Life right now as a 16 year old life outside of me though, I'm talking about the pandemic that we just experienced, the Internet explosion that we're experiencing, all of that. So yeah, I think I'd rather be 30, although if. Yeah, no, I don't take that back being and honestly, can I be honest here, being 16 was not very fun. Like, I didn't enjoy it. If I could go back now and be 16 again and do it differently, I would. But if I just had to go back and be 16? And, like, relive that experience. Like, I don't think being 16 was fun. I actually was the most depressed I've ever been in my life when I was 16. So. I don't want to do that again. Like I feel like every year that goes by I become more wise and more happy. And I still struggle a lot. Actually a **** ton, but it's like. The struggles I feel like I experience become more and more. Important as I get older. It's like when I was younger I used to struggle with stuff like. Oh, this boy doesn't like me and like, my I'm not getting good grades right now or like, blah, blah blah. And that was like so hard and so stressful and so upsetting. But it also like. Wasn't teaching me anything. Whereas now that I'm older, I feel like when I struggle I like learn from my struggles. It's like I feel like my struggles are a little bit more. Based in real life and like based in the real world rather than in my little high school or bubble. Do you see what I'm saying? OK, I need to move on. Been talking about that for too long. Somebody said would you rather be cheated on in a relationship or be the one that cheated 1000% be cheated on 1000%? And I feel like that would be the most common answer, but I don't know. I'm curious. Let me know. Tweet at me at a G podcast whether you would rather be cheated on or be the one that cheated because I'm genuinely curious. This has nothing to do. I'm not trying to ******* plug the podcast Twitter. I couldn't give less of a **** if you follow the podcast Twitter that is. I don't even condone you being on Twitter. I think Twitter is the most toxic platform on the planet, but I am genuinely curious if you have a Twitter and you want to tweet at me. Whether you'd rather be cheated on or be the one that cheated. Because for me personally it's so obvious, right? Like I would rather be cheated on because I don't want to be the one in the wrong like. I don't want to have to live with that guilt. Cheating on somebody is a terrible thing. You know what I mean? And living with that guilt would be so overwhelming, at least for me personally. And everybody's so different in in, you know, experiences things so differently. But for me, I would feel this shame and guilt for the rest of my life that I would not be able to get rid of. And I mean, eventually I'd get over it, but I'd always feel a little bit bad about it, and I don't ever want. That, like, I want to avoid that at all costs. I want to avoid guilt and shame and you know. Hurting others as much as possible. And as humans, we're not perfect. We're gonna cheat on people. We're gonna lie. We're going to, you know? Make mistakes here and there, but like, I try to avoid that at all costs. Whereas if I was in a relationship with somebody and I loved them to the fullest, and I did my absolute best to be the best girlfriend I could possibly be and they still cheated on me, then that's their ******* loss and a story, you know? So and I can go to sleep at night knowing that like I did my best and that I was a good person in the relationship. So I'd definitely rather be cheated on, but actually stemming from that. I'd like to share a kind of little thing that just came to my mind about cheating. And. If you've cheated on somebody before, listen. As long as you realize that what you did was wrong, and as long as you promise yourself that, you're not going to do it again. Then you can absolutely look at it as a learning experience and. If all goes well, it'll help you grow, and that's a beautiful thing. And in that case. You know there's nothing to even be ashamed of. Because guess what? You ****** ** and then you learned from it. That's actually a positive thing, whereas if you just keep cheating on people over and over again, definitely do some self reflection, but I'm not here to. Help you with that right now? OK, we can talk about that in another episode, but if you're like me and you're somebody who has severe trust issues and you constantly are worried about being cheated on, and you're constantly worried that your partner is going to leave you or find somebody else or cheat on you, whatever it may be, let me tell you something that helps me go to sleep at night. It's the thought that. If they were to cheat on you, if they were to leave you, and. Find somebody else. It's their loss as long as. You loved them fully, you treated them. How you would want to be treated. You respected them and you were the best possible significant other you could have possibly been. Obviously that doesn't mean that you are perfect, but you were the best that you could have been and you absolutely worked your hardest to be the best you could be in that relationship. As long as you do all of that, no matter what they do. You can go to sleep at night knowing that you're doing your best and if they leave you. It's not your fault because you did the best you could. And if the best you could is not good enough for them, or it's not exactly what they want, that's their problem. You did your best. And if somebody cheats on you when you've been the best significant other that you could possibly be, that's their loss. And that's really unfortunate. Like that's genuinely bad on them, you know what I mean? Because you did your best, you were. A good significant other and them cheating on you instead of, you know. Dealing with a breakup amicably is very embarrassing. And we can hope that they'll learn from it. But. Until then, you can go to sleep at night knowing that you did your best. Somebody said would you rather give up your platform or never experience true love? OK, this is crazy. This is a crazy question. Umm. But I would say I would give up my platform because I think that feeling true love is one of the most important experiences. In a human being's life, and you can feel true love in many different forms with a you know, significant other, with a friend, with your family, like whatever. You can feel it in many different areas, right? And you can feel it more than once it you know, it's one of those things. That. We'll come and go throughout your life, you know? Some of it stays forever, some true love lasts forever, and that's usually with family and stuff like that. Maybe not, though, you know? But regardless, like I think throughout your life you're going to experience true love on different levels and in different forms. And I think it's one of the most important and the most valuable things that we, we as humans get to have an experience is feeling love, and true love especially. And as much as I ******* adore. You know my connection with all of you guys, and as much as that is, in a sense, true love in itself. In its own special way, I need to have real love in my personal life. And I need to have a decent amount of it actually, in order to survive and be a happy person. Like, I need to have loving relationships in my family. I need to have, you know. Loving relationships with significant others. If I decide to be in a relationship in that moment, I need to have true love and friendships. Like I need that to survive, or else I would be empty. And as much as my platform means to me, like, you know. Experiencing love is like, a lot. More of a necessity, you know. Somebody said I think this is obvious, but a lot of people think it's not. So would you rather? If people didn't show up to your wedding or to your funeral. I would rather people not show up to my wedding. Because. If people didn't show up to my funeral, I that would mean that I. Didn't have a positive impact on people's lives. And that would be a real shame. Whereas a wedding is an excuse for other people to party. So people can show up to your wedding and not even really love and care about you. They just want the free dinner and the free drinks and the dance floor, OK? They might not even care about you. Whereas showing up to a funeral takes courage. And it takes strength. Because it hurts and it and going to a funeral hurts. Bad. And so in order to wanna go to something like a funeral. The person's funeral who you're attending. Had to have impacted you in a big way, therefore I would really hope that people would show up. To my funeral. I don't even know if I want to have like a big wedding. I think about this sometimes, like if I do end up getting married, which I I don't see why I wouldn't. I am going to get married, actually. I've decided, I mean, who knows? But I I really think I want to get married. I know that it's like kind of taboo to say that these days I say this in the podcast every time I bring this up. I'm like talking about getting married taboo. But like a lot of people aren't down to get married anymore, which is to each their own. And that no judgment whatsoever. I. Go crazy, do your thing. But. I do want to get married. I do. And I think that I will. And I but I don't think I want to have a big crazy wedding because. Chances are. By the time I'm like 30 and I'm getting married. Who knows how many friends I'm gonna have left? Like I'm already running low. You know what I mean? And by the time I'm 30, like, I'm probably gonna be even more boring. God knows how many friends I'm gonna have, and chances are if my the person I marry is like me. They're not going to have that many friends either, and then the wedding will be small. So then it won't really matter that nobody showed up to my wedding. So anyway. Somebody said, would you rather be the funniest person ever, or the smartest person ever? For me, definitely the funniest. And the reason why I say that is because being smart is a ******* nightmare. Are you kidding me? Like, I'm not the smartest person on the block, OK, I'm not, but. I know some people, this is not at all an insult. Like, I'm not. I'm trying. I'm gonna try to say this in the nicest way possible, but I don't know how it's gonna go, so let's see. I I know some people that are maybe like, not not like that they're not as smart as me, but. They're maybe just not as thoughtful, like they just kind of. Go through life in a much less thoughtful way. Like they kind of just go with the flow a lot more. They maybe weren't very good at school and they didn't really care, and they don't really think maybe so deeply about things or very like. Intellectually about things or philosophically about things. And that's just the way that they are. And they're happy like that, right? And and they don't. It's not like I'm dissing them at all because they would admit the same thing. Like they just go with the flow and like they just maybe are. Less smart, right? Not necessarily the me, I don't know. Not that they're like less smart than me, but you get what I'm saying here. Like there are a lot less, maybe thoughtful. And I noticed something about these people, and it's that they have a lot more fun than me. Now. If I do my math correctly here. That means that, like, the smarter you are, I think, the more struggles that you face, in a sense, because you think about things so deeply and so like. Technically, that when you're really smart. That it's a torture chamber in your mind. Now, I'm not saying that I'm like. Smart at that level. I'm not because I don't think that. I'm. I'm. I'm ******* not that. I mean, listen, I'll give myself credit. I'm not like the dumbest person ever, but I'm definitely not a genius. Like, **** I don't know. You know, I don't know about crazy complicated math stuff. Like, there's a lot of things that go over my head like, I'm by no means a genius, but I'm definitely like, maybe like I'm, I'm definitely, I'm thoughtful. I would say to a certain extent, you know and like. Me being just a little bit thoughtful and just a little bit smart is already painful enough. If I was more thoughtful and more smart, I would be ******* miserable, as would anybody like. I think being really smart is actually a ******* nightmare. I I do, and so I would rather be the funniest person, because being funny is just fun. Like? Laughter is like the best. ****. Ever. And so being able to make other people laugh or being able to make yourself laugh is like the greatest joy in life and. Who cares about being super intelligent or super smart? If you have fun and you can laugh about **** and you can be funny and whatever then? That's a great life. And listen. Being smart. Can also be great, but I think that being funny, I'd rather be the most funny. Clothes are one of the many ways that we express ourselves and we're constantly switching up our wardrobes. To reflect our interests and styles. But one thing that is a little bit more difficult to switch up is our glasses. Until now, because now with pair eyewear.

It's starting to kick in, you know what I mean? Like I'm starting to get a little delirious, but we're gonna push through. Because. I'm having fun, so. Somebody said would you rather move in with your best friends or move in with your significant other? Well, let's weigh the pros and cons here. The pros of living with your friends is that you don't have to worry about if you look like **** or if you pooped and it smells really bad, or if. You've gas. Because your friends are used to it. Or at least in my experience, all of my friends are used to it. The cons are that. I would get frustrated probably after a week. Because I would miss my alone time and I would miss my privacy. And I would miss. My thoughtful. Daily moments that I have by myself in my home. Because if I lived with all my friends, it would be like crowded. You know what I'm saying? Actually, I don't have a lot of friends, but in this scenario, living with a few friends would get crowded quickly. I feel like I'd have no time to think. Now let's go to the pros and cons of living with your significant other pros. When you're dating somebody, I feel like it's a lot more natural to just kind of like. Coexist in a way where it's like, you don't necessarily need to be talking 24/7, where they feel like with friends you do more. Like, there's more like daily conversation and stuff where it's like with your significant other. I feel like it's easier to like ease into like a routine where you guys kind of do your own separate thing. And I feel like that's a lot more natural. And I don't know why that is, but that's just my experience so I feel like you'd still feel like you had some space while living together. Other Pro is that you know. You don't have to miss them as much because they think when you're dating somebody and you really like them, you tend to miss them all day and all night and whatever when you're not with them. And you wouldn't have to deal with that if you lived with them. And in fact you'd probably get a little bit sick of them, which could be kind of nice. Because at least you wouldn't miss them anymore, and if you needed space, you could just go in the other room. Whereas when you miss your significant other and you don't live together, you would have to drive to their place in order to see them. Or fly if you live long distance. OK, so you know, whatever. Hans, I think I would have to drive to. A local coffee shop to take a poop every morning. Because the thought of pooping in the same home as a guy that I'm dating is, like, traumatizing to me. Which is stupid, because I'm literally 20 years old. I'm not a baby anymore. Emma, why are you still afraid to poop around guys that you're dating? Good question. I don't know. Maybe it's because I have stomach issues, and I feel like my bowel movements are a little bit more, well, volcanic and eruptive, and I don't. Want anybody to know about it? Maybe that's why. And maybe my stomach problems have gotten worse within the past few years, and so now it's even more scarier for me to think about pooping nearer. Potential, significant others, you see what I'm saying? And so that's a con for sure. Another con would be, you know. That you wouldn't experience the. Whole distance makes the love grow fonder thing. It's nice when you don't live with your significant other because then every time you see them you feel like euphoric because you're like, Oh my God, I missed you so much, even though it's been 24 hours, but I missed you so much. Whereas when you live together you don't have that anymore and that would be kind of a bummer. Another con is that you might argue more than you would otherwise. But I think that in conclusion, I'd rather like live with my significant other. Because I think. That. It's just more realistic for my lifestyle and my independence, like I need my independence and I think that. You can establish independence while living with your significant other much better than you can if you live with your friends. That might not necessarily be true, but that's just my input. Also, it would be nice. For me to have somebody around when I'm crying and need a hug. And I think that's much more enjoyable from a significant other than a friend, considering I don't like hugging my friends, which might be weird, but I like don't hug my friends a lot. And sometimes it actually makes me feel weird almost. I can't explain it, but. I do hug my friends, I do. But it's just like, it's just different. Ah. Literally like. My ice water is so cold and it tastes so good. Like. It's like my water just like is hitting different for me right now. Like I just took a big gulp of it and it just like. Is hitting different today. Like some days you could not get me to drink water. Like I just almost gag when I drink water. And then some days I drink water and I'm like, Oh my God, this is like so nice. Anyway, I'm having one of those nights. It's just like tasting better than normal, but whatever. Somebody said would you rather press a rewind button on your life or press a pause button on your life. Definitely press a pause button. I would love to press the pause button right now and sleep for two weeks. I don't know what's going on with me, but like, I've been really exhausted recently. It's definitely because of allergies. I get allergies to pollen, like, you know when it's like springtime and all the pollen and flowers start blooming and such. I get allergies and it makes me really tired, really fatigued, and it makes my like, nose stuffed up, which you could probably hear if you listen closely. And it makes my ears all clogged up and my eyes get puffy. My face gets puffy and it's just not pleasant. So I would like to sleep for two weeks. Because I feel like. I'm tired right now for my allergies. And I would love to pause for a SEC. Also, I feel like I have a lot going on and it's always in moments like this where I very much wish I could just press a pause button, so definitely pause my life. I don't want to rewind and go back and relive ****. Trust me, like I living it once was enough. Like I don't. I'm excited about the future more than I am about wishing I could relive the past. I don't have any desire to relive the past. Somebody said, would you rather never use Instagram again or never use Tik T.O.K again? Definitely never use Tik T.O.K again. Instagram. I prefer. It's interesting because I Jesus, see, I have like ******* scratchy throat from allergies. What's going on? Let me just take a sip of my refreshingly cold water. Delicious. The interesting thing is I like. Posting on Instagram better. Then I like posting on Tik T.O.K, but I like scrolling through Tik T.O.K better than I like posting on Tik T.O.K. But at the end of the day, I think that scrolling through social media for me is bad in general. So I'd rather just have Instagram post on Instagram, have fun with that, and then just. Only scrolling Instagram because they feel like scrolling on Tik T.O.K is where. **** goes wrong because I can just sit on there for so long and it's so addictive and next thing I know I'm anxious and I've seen far too much information and a far too short time and I just feel like ****. And I'm stressed out. Tik Toks algorithm genuinely frightens me. Like just me talking about Tik T.O.K makes me want to go go look on it. It's bizarre how addicted I am to Tik T.O.K. I can't believe it, like it's so random. Like, when did this happen to all of us? We're all addicted to it. Like, even my mom watches tick tocks. She's like 50, you know? We're all guilty. We're all addicted. It's bad. I'd definitely rather get rid of Tik T.O.K. Instagram is less toxic for me. Still toxic. Don't get me wrong, that ****** toxic, but less than Tik T.O.K. Somebody said, would you rather get up at 5:00 in the morning without coffee or stay up until 3:00 AM without coffee? I would say I would rather get up at 5:00 AM without coffee because. I feel like in the morning I'm much more motivated. To like, get up. And like get going. Than I am to stay awake late at night if that makes sense. Like once 11:00 o'clock hits like I'm normally like in bed and I'm like done. And. That's very grandma of me. That's very grandma, that's very mom of me, very middle-aged woman of me. But it's true, like. I feel like I'm becoming more of a morning person than a night person nowadays now that I'm older, which is crazy because. Y'all my sleep schedule used to be so bad I would literally wake up. At noon and then go to bed at like 3 or 4 in the morning, sometimes 5 in the morning, sometimes pulling all nighter. If I was like editing a YouTube video or something. And that was my schedule and it was terrible. And now I'm more at like a go to bed at 10:30 eleven. And then. Wake up at like. Anytime between 6:30 and 8:00 and then that's it. And waking up at 5 is not actually that bad as long as you go to bed early enough. So I would say wake up at 5:00 AM with no coffee and. That's that, and I'd probably have to take a nap in the middle of the day, but that's fine. Somebody said, would you rather have peanut butter stuck to the top of your mouth or toothpaste stuck on your lips? Definitely peanut butter stuck to the top of my mouth. In fact, it would be my pleasure. In fact, I. Wish there was peanut butter stuck to the top of my mouth right now, peanut butter is literally one of my favorite foods. Like I I might go downstairs after this and eat a spoonful of peanut butter. Like I literally love it recently. I've been buying both creamy and chunky peanut butter and having both in my pantry at all times because I like to use creamy peanut butter. When I cook, like let's say if I'm making a peanut sauce or a stir fry or. A sandwich or something like that. I will use creamy peanut butter, but if I'm eating peanut butter with the spoon, I like chunky peanut butter. I've discovered and so now I keep. Both kinds in my pantry at all times. What's funny is that I always was a creamy peanut butter person and then one time I bought crunchy on accident and then it was in my pantry for so long and I was like, OK, I should probably get rid of this. Like, I should probably eat it. I don't want it to go bad or whatever, even though peanut butter takes years to go bad. But I think it was just my excuse. To open another jar when I already had one open whatever. And I discovered that eating crunchy peanut butter with a spoon is one of the more enjoyable experiences I experience on a day-to-day basis. I love it. And so I would love to have peanut butter stuck to the top of my mouth. It's my pleasure. And toothpaste stuck on your lips not only looks embarrassing, but also is really unpleasant to remove. Whereas peanut butter being stuck to the top of your mouth is actually a joy and a pleasure to remove, you just lick the top of your mouth until it's gone. It's a ******* dream come true.

Would you rather go back to your past and be able to relive it but not change anything despite knowing the future? Or go to the future but when you return to the present, you can't change anything despite knowing the future? OK, this one's really actually a **** ****. I would rather go back to my past and be able to relive it. And not change anything. Rather than. Going to the future? And not being able to. Change any of my decisions, even though I like know what's going to happen and this is because I feel like. Going to the past and reliving it has less. Negative effects, right? Because you already know what happened in your past, you can remember it going back and reliving it. Could be fun, could be painful. You're probably going to learn something from it. Living, you know, living a past experience again. You're probably going to learn something from it, right? Even though you've already lived it, being able to do it again would probably teach you something interesting, even if you can't change anything. Whereas going to the future for a second, experiencing that, and then coming back to the present would be traumatizing because. You'd live. In the present moment. With this feeling of doom, because you know what's going to happen later. You know what I mean. So instead of like. Living in the present moment, you're going to live in the present moment, but constantly knowing what's going to happen down the line and it would take the exciting spontaneity out of life, and that is not good to me, so. That's my answer. Somebody said, would you rather live happily ever after with no downs at all, like just in movies? Everything is great. Or be human and enjoy the life of its ups and downs. You know. Sometimes I wish that I could just live life like a movie. You know what I mean? All ups, no downs. Life is perfect. But that would be a cop out, you know what I mean? Like that would be cheating. That would not be. Living life to the fullest, living life to the fullest is like experiencing all ranges of emotion, in all ranges of challenge, in all ranges of excitement and success and failure. Like all of that is so important to have a rich life. And if you deny yourself from experiencing extreme lows, then you deny. You kind of deny yourself from experiencing extreme highs and. I just think that like floating through life, like a movie, as tempting as that may seem, would take a lot of the substance and the value out of being a human. And so I would rather live life as a human and experience the pain, although I'm not going to lie to you guys. I've been having. A stressful week and I've felt like **** because of my allergies and I've just had no energy to like, do anything and I've just not really been feeling my best. And it's moments like that where I'm like, I wish I just lived in a movie where everything was just perfect, you know what I mean? But at the same time, it's like, it's moments like where I'm in right now where I just feel kind of like **** physically. Like my body just doesn't feel good because of my allergies and. I'm stressed out because I have a lot of work to do and stuff like that. It's moments like this one. I really appreciate a vacation when I end up going on a vacation, hopefully at some point in the future, you know? Or I enjoy a weekend off, you know? It's like I'm going to enjoy that **** so much more. And that's beautiful. Somebody said would you rather fart really loud? That it almost breaks glass but there's no smell or fart without a sound but it's the worst smell ever, while I actually fart without a sound, but it's the worst smell ever. I. Actually in my. Day-to-day life like. I be having stomach issues that sometimes make my gas. Just. Unbelievable that it's coming from me. Like somebody would look at me and be like, oh, she's just a little 19 year old girl. She probably doesn't have crazy bad farts. Well, that's where you'd be wrong. I feel like people always expect like a really raunchy fart to come from like some sort of like 50 year old businessman who just like, you know. Eats roast beef, but like, no like. It comes from me too. Apparently the thing about farting in it's smelling bad, but nobody knowing it's from you is that you can really easily like. Get out of it, you know. You can get out of it. What I always do wait. I don't want to say what I always do because. Because then if anybody I know is, like, listening to this, then, like, I'm gonna be ******* exposed. OK, fine, I'll tell you. When I fart and it smells really bad and I don't want to admit it, I. Pretend that I don't smell it at all. Like somebody be like, Oh my God **** do you smell that? And I'll be like, no. And they're like, damn, really like I'm I'm smelling something. And I'm like, no, I literally. Beats me. Like I literally can't smell anything right now, like. Actually, in fact, the air smells like delicious right now. It actually smells like somebody's making like cinnamon buns or something. I feel like it just smells so good out today. And then people are like think that they're imagining things. It's like, it's kind of like gaslighting, honestly. Somebody said would you rather be extremely hot or extremely cold? I would say I'd rather be extremely cold because I really hate the sensation of sweat. And heat, like, I really hate it. Like I I've always hated it. I've always preferred being cold over being hot, and that's why I keep my AC at like 65 degrees in my home, because I like being cold. For some reason it's very weird and I'm always cold in my home. Like I always I'm. I'm constantly. Feeling cold in my home on a day-to-day basis. Like because I make it that way. I make the AC 65 degrees. Like, I choose this lifestyle, OK? And I choose that voluntarily, which makes it pretty obvious to me that I prefer to be cold over hot. So I don't know why I'm like that, but. Alas, like I cannot fall asleep unless it's freezing cold in my bedroom. Like I don't know what it is. Somebody said would you rather eat boogers for a day or only drink tea for a day? I would rather drink pee. Because I can't imagine that it's that bad, actually, but I drank pee before I got dared to drink pee once. So I actually have drank pee. And I can't remember. I think I kind of blacked out because I was so, like, not happy that I was doing it. That I kind of blacked out in the moment and now I like. Don't remember if it even had a flavor, but I have consumed pee before as a dare. I promise you as a dare. Like, this was not voluntary at all. I, like, got dared to do it and everybody was like, oh, am I now you have to do it. And I was like, well, can't be a ***** now. So I drank a sip of **** and I don't even think it was mine, actually, which is pretty disgusting, but pee is sterile. I think so. Didn't kill me, but. I'd rather drink pee. I've never been somebody who ate my boogers. I never will. I am not judging people who eat their boogers. But I'm proud to say that I've never been a booger eater and I really don't understand. The I really don't understand the whole booger eating hype. I don't get it. I never have. Somebody said, would you rather have been in a sorority if you went to college or be in a content house? God, both of those sound like my living hell. If you don't know what a sorority is and you don't know what a content house is, I'm going to briefly explain it. A sorority is like a group of girls in a college. That. It's basically like being a part of a club in a sense, where you guys do like charitable acts of things and you guys all do a throw events together at your college. I don't really exactly know what a sorority is, but that's my basic understanding of it. And then and it's it's all in college, right? And it's like. A club, basically for girls, OK? And then a content house is basically where a bunch of people who make Internet content live in a house together and create content together on a daily basis. Which sounds like my ******* worst nightmare. Sororities are the exact opposite of something that I think I would belong in. Because I just. No. There's nothing wrong with sororities, like, I think they're really great. I know. A lot of people who are in college and who are in sororities, like meet a lot of friends that way and like, you know, get to do charity work and it can be a really positive thing. But like, I just don't think that that would have worked for me because I'm just not somebody that like. When you're in a sorority, you're kind of forced to be around a lot of other girls and like. I just am very selective about who my friends are and I just feel like if I was in a sorority, I'd be forced to have like 100 friends, all of them being in my sorority, and I just really don't see that working out very well for me because I just feel like. It would feel fake and I would hate it. And I don't like forced friendships like, I just don't like that. Uh, but being in a content house? Would be an absolute. Social climbing nightmare. Where everybody's collabing with each other and like. Competitive with each other. Uh, to answer the question, I think I would be in a sorority. Yeah, I really like you. Really just couldn't catch me in a in a content house. Like you just really couldn't like you. I just couldn't. It would be awful. Somebody said, would you rather know how old you are when you're going to die or how you're going to die? I would say I'd rather know how I'm going to die. Because I don't want to know when I'm going to die, because then I'm just going to constantly be like counting down to that age. And like, I don't want to do that. I don't want to know the future like that. Like, I like the fact that the future is not promised. I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. I like that. I don't know that it's actually comforting for me. Knowing how I'm going to die gives me less information. You know what I'm saying? And. You know, even if it says like, oh, you're gonna drown. I'm. That may make me avoid water, but. At least I won't know when it's going to happen. You know what I'm saying? So like. Definitely that. Somebody said would you rather give up podcasting or YouTube now this is really hard and I actually thought long and hard about this. I would say I would give up podcasting now. Here's why, because I have a loophole and it's that I could just make longer YouTube videos, whereas. You know. I couldn't. Just do podcast. You know what I'm saying? Like I like to show myself doing stuff. I like to talk to you guys face to face as well as I like talking to you guys over a microphone. But like. I feel like I could do podcasting on YouTube or as I couldn't do YouTube on podcasting so I feel like I would do. I would just really lean into YouTube and start making like hour long YouTube videos if I didn't have this podcast. Honestly I probably would have done that by now if I didn't have a podcast so. I would definitely give up podcasting, but I'd still kind of do it on YouTube, which means I would be cheating a little bit on the game. But you know. Somebody said would you rather be poor with good people around you or rich and lonely? I love this question because. I think it's so interesting. How different people answer it? And my answer would be poor with good people around you because. I know from experience that as much money or fame or whatever that I experience in my life. I will still be miserable if I don't have good people, and that's just the *** **** truth of it. It's just the ******* truth of the matter. And having money helps with certain areas of your life, but it doesn't help with genuine connections and that's what makes life really, truly worth living. So I would definitely rather. Be poor with good people. And on that note, guys, I need to go to bed. I am delirious. I'm delirious. But I had a lot of fun. This was some some fun midnight discussion. This was a fun midnight discussion. And I hope you guys enjoyed it.
