Ramble, this episode of Anything Goes is sponsored by Macy's. Check out my Macy's gift guide for amazing Valentine's Day gift ideas at Macy's Dotcom Šamaš.


Hey, guys, welcome back to Anything Goes. I'm Emma, your host, Emma Chamberlin, to be exact, and here we are.


How are you? Good, um, listen, I've been thinking I have been touching on a lot of deep and dark fuckin topics on this podcast, I just love to go there. I love to go emo mode. I love to go dark mode. I don't know why that is, but I do I like to have a therapy session with you guys, but to be honest, I think we need to lighten it up a little bit, at least for a little bit.


You know what I mean?


Trust me, we're going to go back into the deep stuff at some point. But I don't know. I feel like we need a little break. And so. I thought it'd be kind of fun to have you guys send me your unpopular opinions about things. And then I'm going to react to them, so I'm going to say I agree, I disagree and see where it goes. Because I think it's interesting to see what people around the world think about different things, and I think it can be kind of mind opening.


To hear people's unpopular opinions or even just opinions in general. So I'm really excited. Nothing really has happened to me the last few days that's like worthy of talking about I mean, OK, what have I done? I've been. Going on walks a little bit here and they're boring, I'm still cooking boring, like we might as well just jump straight into this episode because I've no life update and I wish I did.


I wish I did. I wish there was something interesting that had happened. The most interesting thing that's happened is that it's been like 45 degrees in L.A. for the past five days.


And it's like so confusing because I'm like, why is it so cold and why am I kind of vibing with it? You know, I don't hate it.


It also snowed in Malibu, California, and I don't think that that's normal. So I don't know what type of sorcery that is, but that's kind of cool.


It never snows in Southern California. I don't think like I really don't think that ever happened, so I couldn't believe it.


That's it. That's all I got for you with my personal life. So let's get into your guises. Unpopular opinions. And see my thoughts. I'm really excited. It's almost like we're having a conversation a little bit. But before I start, I do think that we need to have a sip of coffee, so.


I was trying to think of unpopular opinions of my own, and I realized that I actually have zero opinions right now, like I feel so numb about everything in life that I needed you guys to kind of help me.


And you did you guys were amazing, if you want to tweet at me and be a part of the episode moving forward, the Twitter is at a podcast. So follow it, don't whatever, Twitter's a shitty platform anyway, so I don't blame you if you don't want to be on there. But anyway, let's get into it.


OK, the first one is good grades don't mean anything. OK, this is interesting to me because although I think that good grades. Are not, by any means a reflection of somebody's intelligence. I also don't think that they don't mean anything because I think for some people. Good grades do show hard work because for some people. They work really hard for the grades that they have, and I think it would be unfair to say that that doesn't mean anything.


But I think for some people, good grades are not a reflection of their intelligence by any means. And I think good grades, you know, some people are just supernaturally good at school. They get good grades and. Maybe that means less than the super hardworking student that, like, bust their ass to get good grades versus the naturally, you know, school minded person. So I don't think that it means nothing.


I think it's very situational. And it's very based on the person, because for somebody who works really hard and bust their ass, I do think that that means something. But for the people where school just doesn't click with their brain at all, then, yeah, I don't think it means anything because it's like, well, you know, some people could do their absolute best at school. And they're never going to get good grades because that's just not how their brain functions, their brain just doesn't function in the school way, and that's normal, too.


So I think it just depends. Next, somebody said peanut butter is bad. This offended me and I normally wouldn't have included this because it's so mundane, but. I think peanut butter is one of the best foods on the planet, but here's my unpopular opinion that stems from your unpopular opinion.


I think that. Mainstream brand peanut butter is not good, for example, Skippy, Jeffie, Jeff, whatever the fuck, I think that those peanut butter are bad. I don't think that they're good. The texture is like, not great. It just doesn't taste like peanuts. It's like. Kind of weirdly bland in a way, not good, all natural peanut butter. The type that you have to mix up, because as oil separation on the top, that shit hits and I'm not I don't know why that is.


It just is so fucking good. Like, that shit is crazy good. So much flavor, so delicious. But like, mainstream brand peanut butter is not for me. And listen, I'm open minded, like if maybe there's one out there that I'm not trying. Sure. But all natural peanut butter hits different. And if you don't like peanut butter, try an all natural peanut butter and then come talk to me. Somebody said that bodycount shouldn't matter to your partner.


I agree with this, I totally understand that sometimes it can be upsetting if you're dating somebody and you're like, wow, you know, let's say 20 other people have kissed them. The way I just did, fuck, you know, it's not the best feeling I get it, but it's also like, what do you expect? I try to look at relationships as whatever happened before we met. Is kind of none of my business unless they're like a murderer, but like when it comes to their past relationships, when it comes to how many people they've slept with, I'm like, listen, people change and evolve every day and they're with me now.


And there's nothing I can do about the past. They as long as somebody is treating you well and is a good significant other and is loyal, who cares what their past relationships have look like.


You know, it's all learning. I've done some dumb shit. I've done some embarrassing shit. I would hope that, you know, in the dating world. Right. And I would hope that, you know, if I was in a new relationship, I wouldn't be judged for those things because I'm aware that those things are embarrassing. Now, I'm aware of the mistakes I've made. I'm aware of the, you know, areas of weakness I know now.


So I would hope that I wouldn't be too heavily judged for those things because, number one, it doesn't harm my significant other at all.


And also. Like, I've grown from those things, I'm a product of those experiences, I'm the way I am and relationships now because of those experiences, I don't think I would appreciate, you know, a good, healthy relationship without the fucked up things that I've done.


Not even fucked up. They're not they're literally not fucked up, like completely normal. But of course, to me, I think that they're fucked up because it's like that's how we work. But like, I wouldn't be who I was without every experience with a guy. Before so, like whoever I'm dating in the present moment. Is dating a product of all of those experiences, in addition to life experiences that are unrelated. But you see what I'm saying?


I don't think the body count should matter to your partner, because that is not what it's about. It's about who you are in that relationship in the present moment period.


And I would personally never judge a partner for how many people they slept with, if they slept with 200 people. But they were a really loyal good.


Boyfriend, to me, I would be fine with it as long as like, you know, those actions don't affect, you know, it's like if they're like, you know, somebody who's slept with two other people, you might be like, oh, well, are they going to cheat on me?


As long as they don't, then who gives a fuck? But somebody who has a body count of one body count? How many people you've been with?


Somebody that's literally slept with one person could still cheat on you. You see what I'm saying? It's about who they are in the present moment with you. God bless. Somebody said, I don't understand the hype around chocolate like it's good and stuff, but I never crave it. I totally get this. I feel the same way. And it's so weird because I crave, like, the weirdest shit. I don't crave chocolate ever. And I love it.


I do love it. Like when it's in something. Holy shit, I'm excited, but like I never go out of my way to get chocolate, whereas like I crave cheese, like I'll crave cheese or I'll crave like cheese and crackers.


Are you kidding me.


That shit's crazy good. Like I'll crave that or I'll crave like hummus randomly. Like I'll just want to eat a whole tub of hummus. Like I crave the weirdest shit or. All crave like cornbread or. Thai food, like it's so random, like I never I tend to crave savory stuff, I don't really tend to crave desserts or like potatoes. I'll potatoes all day long. But yeah, not chocolate for me either, so I agree with that unpopular opinion.


OK, next, somebody said PTA's gross and I don't care what it is. OK, I slightly disagree with this because I honestly think it can be kind of charming to see a couple holding hands or even have like an arm around one another in public.


I can can be charmed by that. I have not always felt that way. When I was younger, I was just like, fuck everybody. I don't like love, I don't want to see it. Fuck it. Even when I was in a relationship, I would still be like, no, this shit's nasty, but. As I'm growing older, I'm starting to realize how really beautiful it is that, you know. Two people can love each other, and I've grown to appreciate it even when it's not involving me.


Right. And so I think some respectful and, you know, innocent P.D.A never hurt anybody.


Like a little arm around the shoulder, a little grab on the waist. Like, that's cute to me. Like, when I see that, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.


I like it. Almost in a selfish way, because I'm like, oh, I wish that was me, or like not even like I wish that was me, but like, oh my God, what if that was me? Like, that would be Sakir. That was me. You know, it's weird, but I like appreciate it and I'm like, wow, that's sweet to see, like a couple that loves each other, even though they could fucking deep down hate each other.


God only knows. But still, it's a fun little fantasy to live in. But I do not like when people are like making out in public. That's so gross to me and so unnecessary. I think a little peck here and there never hurt anybody that doesn't bug me, like if you're at the airport and you see a couple pick. Before, like one member of the couple leaves, like love, like I think that's cute, any, like, ass grabbing, I don't fuck with that.


I just think that that's so unnecessary. It also makes me uncomfortable. It's also not cute and innocent and it kind of ruins my fantasy. Of like, you know, oh, my God, love is so innocent and beautiful in life, it's like for some reason in ascribe in public, I'm like, just save it. There's something so fun about, like innocent P.D.A, it's like just save it, God damn it, so I'm 50/50 on that one with you.


OK, but speaking of PDA, let's discuss Macy's Valentine's Day shopping and gifting. OK, Macy's is something for literally everybody, OK? And listen, I don't know. Valentine's Day is hard. Buying things for your significant other is the hardest thing on the planet. You know, you can go to Macy's and find something like that's why I love it, because there's everything. They have so many brands, so many different types of products. You really can't go wrong and you can buy yourself a little cute lingerie said if you want.


Whether you want to shop for the latest fashion trends, get the perfect gift for literally any occasion, whatever you need, you can find it at Macy's. I hate Valentine's Day, but I you know, this is my first year where I might actually have a Valentine, everybody shut the fuck up. Everybody shut up about it. I know it's crazy, but. I need to get them something, OK, and I don't know how to shop for boys, it's very hard, but I feel like I couldn't go wrong at Macy's.


I feel like I could get I'm thinking like a good Ralph Lauren sweater. Like, that's perfect, right? Like, you can't go wrong. He's going to wear it easy. I also need to get Valentine's Day gifts for my friends, maybe some cute slippers in, like, a cute robe for both of them.


Maybe a cute little Calvin Klein Brawne underwear set for them so that they can surprise their Valentines, something fun if you need a little Valentine's Day holiday gift guide. Here I am. I'm going to help you. Let's say you want to get something for your parents. I know that that's kind of not traditional, but maybe they're your only Valentine. Macy's has an amazing jewelry section. Get your mom some jewelry. They also have an amazing home section. Get your mom new towels, maybe a new coffee machine, maybe a new knife set.


Mom's love that stuff. As for your dad, you know your dad needs a new button up shirt. He's been wearing the same one for twenty years. Help the man out. Get him a new button up shirt. They have all the brands. OK, like you can't go wrong and it's affordable. Like you can find affordable options, more high end options. Macy's has everything for every price range.


So you can kind of decide while you're on the site, let's say you want to get something for. Your class at school, like you want to get a little Valentine's Day gift for all the people in your class. Maybe you get them all little fun socks that have hearts on them. Let's say you're completely stumped when it comes to your girlfriend. I swear to God. Get her jewelry. Personally, I love getting jewelry as a gift, I mean, everybody likes getting jewelry.


Macey's jewelry is fire like they have so many options. OK, you cannot go wrong. There's it's not like you even have to go in with an idea. Like just scroll through the jewelry page, you'll find something. And again, a wide range of price ranges, OK, if you're like I only can spend 50 on the girlfriend, but I want to make it look nice. I want to make it seem heartfelt. They have great jewelry.


And if you're shopping for your boyfriend, get them socks. OK, they're socks. Probably like I don't know. I don't think I've ever dated a guy in them.


Not just have a bunch of holes in their socks, especially when you start to date older, like when you're older and their moms can't buy them socks anymore.


It's crazy how every single sock that they own has a hole in it.


So if you have a boyfriend, get them socks, Macy's has lots of socks, but Macy's also has amazing things for yourself. I added a bunch of clothes to my shopping list for Macy's. A lot of basics. I mean, they have great socks, great underwear, great bras, amazing sweaters. Like they've supercute, like Ralph Lauren sweaters. I'm a big Calvin Klein Andy gal, so that's been great.


I also just got into cooking and they have a lot of cooking utensils. I mean, I am eyeing some cast iron type of pans.


Feel like that could be exciting, might need to get those at some point so I can elevate my cooking game.


Also, I possibly want to buy some new knives because knives are very important for making good cuts.


You'd be shocked at how important it is when you're cooking.


I was actually shocked at how many things that they have and how many different genres of products they have. It's very impressive and it's a great one.


Stop shop for yourself and for others. Make sure you guys go and check out our complete shopping guide and more at Macy's dot com slash. Emma, you can find the perfect Valentine's Day gift shop around for anything else that you could possibly want. They have it all. Thank you, Macy's, for sponsoring this episode of anything else. I love you guys.


And I'm very impressed by your wide selection of fucking everything somebody said.


I don't get the hype around the airports. I disagree, I think airports are amazing, we actually they said air pods, Max, are those new air pods. Ear buds, Max. Oh, we I haven't seen these the airports, Max, what is this? Are these headphones holy shit, Apple came out with headphones. Now I want to try these. OK, but they are six hundred dollars, so. Randomly, I'm no longer interested, it's a lot for headphones.


Wow, that's interesting. So I guess Apple came out with a full headphone set that has like the full. You know, Shabangu, like it's not just little earbuds. But why are they calling him air pods? I feel like Pod insinuates an earbud. So the fact that they're. Labeling their full headphone set as air pods max to me is just confusing, but whatever, they definitely know more about marketing than I do. So I don't know why I'm even talking.


I don't know I don't know anything about their iPods, Max. I didn't even know that they came out, but I can say I'm a huge fan of airports like huge fan, I am obsessed with them.


The new ones are noise cancelling. And when I go on my runs, it's amazing. It feels like the world around me is silent.


I love it. I'm a huge airport gal because I like to listen to podcasts and music when I'm like doing stuff around the house and sometimes it's just nice to wear air pads. Also, if I'm on the phone, I can, like, leave my phone down and, like, go walk around and talk like air pods.


I used to think that they were overrated, but then I really got into them the last few months because I got a new pair and I stopped using the ones with the wire and I was like, kind of a game changer. Also, if I'm going on a run or something, the wire is not bouncing around and shit. I mean. Wireless headphones in general are kind of a dream, so I'm into it anyway, but maybe I'll try the air pods, Max, but I just don't think that 600 dollars for headphones is worth it to me.


Like, that's just my opinion. I don't have a reason. I'm not a fucking music producer. I don't need 600 dollar headphones, so. That's not really something I think of to put my money towards, but if I do end up weirdly having some sort of. Crazy Shopaholic episode, and I like for some reason decide to buy them, which probably won't happen, I will let you know somebody said college is not necessary to being successful. OK, so this is really controversial, right, because.


I think it depends. If you want to be successful as a teacher, as a professor, if you want to be successful as a doctor, as a nurse, as a dentist, as a orthodontist, as a scientist, as an engineer, there are certain jobs that, yes, you need to go to college to be successful in those areas. Why? Because there's so much knowledge that you need to have to be able to safely do these jobs.


You don't want somebody who didn't learn about engineering, engineering a car. Right, because that shit's scary. You wouldn't want to drive that car. I'm sorry I didn't go to college to learn about. Engineering, so, yeah, you bet your bottom dollar, I'm not going to be fucking building a rocket ship anytime soon. Or ever unless I decide to go to college for 10 years for that, you see what I'm saying? There are certain things that for the well-being of mankind, college is necessary.


And if you want to be successful in certain areas, you you may need to go to college for that. If you do want to be a successful doctor, you do need to go to college. You get what I'm saying. But to be generally successful. Or to be even just successful in your own eyes. I do not think you need to go to college now at all. It just depends on what success is for you, if success for you is to be, you know.


An entrepreneur and you want to make your own business, you may not need to go to college for that at all, you could totally self teach yourself how to do that.


But if your idea of success is, you know, being a doctor, yeah, you're going to need to go to college.


So do you see what I'm saying? It's so depends. But don't get me wrong, you can. Absolutely. Be successful without college, a thousand percent, ten thousand percent, it's all about what success is to you. What that looks like to you, and that's the end of it, we're in an age where you can do whatever you want, it's it's never been easier to. Find a job that doesn't require college, but that's not to say that.


It's bad if you want to go to college and you want to get a job from that, you know what I'm saying? Or you want to go to college to learn more about certain things so that you can be more well-rounded in certain areas. To get a certain job like it's college is not necessarily the devil, but in my opinion and this is all in my opinion, but I think it's just also situational. But I do think that it's not necessary all the time.


But sometimes it is it just depends on you, so you are the judge of that and nobody else is. Nobody else has a say in that but you that is completely up to you and that is your own personal goal. In your own personal view, on. Everything, you know, like job money, whatever that means for you, it's all based on you. And remember, success is very abstract. There's no. Specific definition of it, it's very abstract.


OK, next, somebody said school is so pointless. Most of what we learn will never be used in the real world and it just causes more stress. OK, I have a very interesting. Perspective on this, and I and I love to hear, you know, your guys opinions on this. Feel free to tweet at me.


So I only went to school for what I mean, 13 years.


So I graduated early junior year of high school and. So. I basically stopped at a high school education that was where I stopped, I didn't go to college, whatever. I think that school, for me personally, was fully useful and necessary until about the end of freshman year, and here's why I think that going to school was important.


For those development years, right, the years where I'm developing the most kindergarten through. 15 or so, it's important because it helps you develop your social skills.


It's important because it gives you life experience with so many different types of people. It's important because it teaches you how to learn. Sometimes you learn things at school that aren't maybe going to benefit you in your life.


I don't ever use long division, actually, I do, I actually do weirdly, like like, you know, like a restaurant or something. And I'm calculating something I don't know, but like. There's a lot of things you learn at school that will never. Really be important. But at the same time. It's important to know how to learn, do you know what I'm saying, and going to school and having to learn about a bunch of different things, some being vital to being a human and like, you know, some being very important, like.


How to read or math like those are things that are amazing, like we need to know how to do those things for day to day life, they make our life easier. They are important.


Even understanding certain things about science can be important, like, yes, there's a lot of things about that we learn in school that are very necessary. But there are some things that we learn that are a little bit less necessary, but those things. Teach us how to learn about things and. Are not necessarily terrible things to know when it gets out of control. I would say is in high school because. In high school, you're approaching adulthood. And that's when important topics start to get neglected.


I don't think you need to learn about taxes in fifth grade. I just don't.


But when you're a junior in high school, it's not a bad idea to start planning those seeds and start, you know, learning about that shit. I think that schools. Should implement absolutely more of that stuff into the curriculum instead of, you know. Making kids take crazy science classes that they're never going to use, like I know I'm never going to use anything I learned in chemistry. It was virtually a pointless class, at least for me, like I don't feel like I'm ever going to learn anything.


I like it was all so abstract that it wasn't really useful.


No. That's unnecessary to me, whereas like my eighth grade English class, I learned so much from that class, I learned how to analyze, like, you know.


Bodies of writing in ways that, like, you know, I still feel like are useful to me now and stuff like that, but like my chemistry class wasn't important, that chemistry class could have easily been replaced by a class that teaches you about taxes or about. Money management, and I think that that would have been more useful for me long term thousand percent. So I don't think that school is pointless because I think that.


It teaches you obviously basic knowledge that you need to know. And it also teaches you how to learn, which is so important, it teaches you how to stay disciplined, which is so important, it teaches you.


Work ethic in your own way. But I think at a certain point, it does get out of control and, you know, the workload is too much and it's part a lot of it is pointless at a certain point, especially in high school and maybe even college and.


That's my view, so I think it is important and I don't think it should be like completely disregarded, but I think it just needs to be restructured. That's just my opinion.


OK. Anyway. Next, somebody said, take talkers, can't sing, I don't necessarily think this one is true, I've heard some take talkers saying, and I've been genuinely impressed, some I think maybe aren't natural born singers or natural born musicians, and they just kind of, you know, want to do it because they want to do it whatever, you know.


But I've heard some that can truly sing. And it's actually interesting. I decided to talk about this one because I think that there's an interesting. Conversation to have about this topic in general and its social media influencers, take talkers, YouTube's, whatever. Maybe going in different directions with their career that maybe don't fit just because they feel lost and I've seen this so many times. A lot of you, Tuba's. Take talkers, Barbara. We'll feel like being just an influencer is a dead end and they're like, I need to do something else so that I can keep this going.


And they might try to do music. They might try to become an actor. They might try to have a Netflix show, I don't fucking know. But like, they'll try to go a direction that they think will give them career longevity, even if it's not necessarily something that's from their heart.


Like, for example, with music, my dad makes music, I know how he makes like he writes music, he plays instruments, he makes songs. He was in a band when he was like in his 20s or whatever. Like he's very into music. And so because of that, I've seen that my whole life. And I see how passionate he truly is about music. Not to mention I have many musician friends and people in my life that make music too, and are involved in that industry and that shit.


When it's your passion and that's your die hard passion.


It is so emotional. It's so fucking like draining. It's so hard.


It's so scary, it's so intimidating, it would be a fucking. Crazy, you know, industry to be a part of, and I think a lot of and that's when, like you are in it, like you're writing the music or, you know, you're a natural born singer. And so you're like not using a lot of auto tune, like if you're in it, because that's your passion. It's not easy at. And so I think it's crazy.


That a lot of, you know, people will kind of join the music industry. But like, they don't necessarily have a passion for it, and I don't think that that's wrong. I just think it's fascinating, it's fascinating to see, you know, the different. Approaches to it like there's the really heartfelt their whole lives are music type of musicians, and then there are the people that are like, OK, well, I need to.


Do something I don't know what to do next, maybe I do this even though I'm not necessarily going to write my own music, I'm not going to produce my own music. You know, it's interesting. It's interesting. But I also don't think it's fair to take away from an influence that. Maybe became an influencer, but has always had a passion for music, I don't think that that's impossible either. Yes, there are some that just do it as maybe even a cash grab or just it just.


They don't know what else to do. And. You know, there's other people that can kind of make the music for them, so why not? Right. But there probably are some influences out there that genuinely, like, write their own music, are great singers and are passionate about it and blah, blah, blah. So I think it just totally depends. And I don't think, you know.


I don't think all take talkers are just doing it as like a money grab, cash grab, but I do think some might be and that's OK, do whatever you fucking do, whatever you got to do, you know what I mean?


It's like, fuck, I don't know. Like, if that's like you live once. Right. It's so it's like. Make it happen, you know, if you don't want to write your own music, if you don't want to, you know, make your own music, whatever, what are we going to do? You know, you just got to make ends meet at the end of the day. Right. So I'm not judging either way.


Somebody said milk is really good. No, I think milk tastes disgusting. And is gross, and that is my opinion, I have never been somebody who can just have a glass of milk with dinner. I think it's so gross. I do love me some almond milk. I love me some. Crazy alternative milks, I love that, I love experimenting with them, love, great, passionate about it, but.


Not about regular milk, I think it's really gross. Somebody said tomatoes are good sometimes, but also gross, I agree with this, I love tomato sauce. I love. I actually love ketchup, I love tomato soup, but if I'm eating a sandwich and there is a sliced up tomato on it, I will pick the tomatoes off without fail. They're soggy. They taste like shit. And that's the end of it, likes tomatoes, need seasoning.


The only exception with like a full raw tomato is I will eat cherry tomatoes in a Greek salad. That's it. And I don't know why, but that doesn't bother me.


I do love cherry tomatoes and I love, like, tomato basil flavored like crackers, like Delish. Count me in like I love that it's just raw tomato on a fuckin sandwich or raw tomato just. Floating on top of a pizza, I'm just like, shut up, no. So. Next time he said UGS and crocs are actually not ugly and are fun and comfy to wear. I agree. The thing is, comfort is like number one most important thing.


If you're comfortable and you feel good, who gives a fuck? I also think like stuff like Crocs and UGS, like they may be kind of ugly in their own way, but that's why they're fun. Like, that's the point. I'm literally wearing UGG boots right now because they're so comfortable and they're just like kind of fun. Like it's fun that they're kind of ugly, like it's fun that they're kind of weird looking, you know what I mean?


Like I enjoy that. I like that with crocs too. Like, crocs are kind of quirky looking and that's what's charming about them. Like they're charming. It's like, you know, when you see a dog or like a hairless cat. Or like a dog that, like, is kind of ugly and its teeth are all like fucked up, it's so it's like weirdly charming and cute because it's kind of ugly. You love it because it's kind of ugly.


Same thing with dogs and crocs. I agree. Somebody said. Unpopular opinion dating your friend's exes is not normal, I agree, I don't think that that's OK. Like, I think it's just a respect thing.


I would never. Date one of my friend's exes ever. I'm like trying to think like, have I done that? No, I was like, fuck, what have I done that? No, I've never done that.


I mean, obviously, like let's say, you know, in L.A., it's like hard because everybody kind of knows each other. So there's a decent chance when you date somebody in L.A. that you're going to know one of their exes and. That's like inevitable, but I'm not going to date one of my best friend's exes, no, because that's just not respectful and. It's upsetting. I mean, I think there could be an exception if, like, the relationship was weird and like not super deep, then sure, but nine times out of ten, that's just not healthy and not necessary.

I've been going through a weird phase and this happens to me like every few months where I just get obsessed with, like. How people perceive me on Instagram, it's so bizarre and like I'll get super obsessed with, like outfits in clothes and posting and I'll start posting photos every day and I'll get obsessed with how my feed looks. And I'll be obsessed with, like, what people would think if they clicked on a certain photo. And it's less about like.


You know what you guys think, because I feel like we have fun together and it's like I don't feel pressure to post for, you know, you guys who, like, fuck with me and like, you know, fuck with my content and like, come back and, like, want to hang out with me and blah, blah, blah, blah.


Like, I don't really feel pressure to. Maybe even impress you guys, because I feel like you guys are on my team, right? You guys are on my team, we're on the same team. We love each other. I feel that. So I don't feel the need to, like, impress for that as much. It's weirdly more people I know, which is so bizarre because people I know like see me in person. So me creating some sort of illusion online for them to see is not fooling anybody because they fucking see me in person like I'm not I can't hide from them.


But it's so weird because I start to get obsessed with like seeming cool on Instagram, but yet on YouTube I'm like, I don't give a fuck on my podcast, I don't give a fuck. It's this weird mind fuck on Instagram where it's so fun to like create this world. And the thing is, I'm not talking about like Photoshop Forstchen. I don't do any of that shit like unless like I need at one time, OK, one time I did phase tune a let's say my bikini.


I was wearing a bikini and it was pulled up a little bit too high. And I just needed to face down a little bit of that. Like I've needed a face to and like my leg hair out of my. I've done that once. I did. Did I do that? I think I did phase two in my leg hair out of a photo, and then I didn't end up posting it. I can't remember that was so long ago.


But like, I've definitely like but I'm never changing my body.


I'm never like, you know, you know, like it's always something where it's like, OK, I don't want people to see my fucking camel toe, like, call the police on me, you know what I'm saying? OK, whatever. Um, never anything harmful. But when I'm what I mean by illusion is like, you know, putting on cool outfits and doing my makeup cool so that people think I'm cool and like being like aesthetic so that people think I have this cool aesthetic.


Like, it's weird how people really tie their identity to their Instagram and I'm totally guilty.


It's like I feel like people are going to think I'm cooler in real life. If I have a cooler Instagram. But that's only with people I actually know, it's not just for the general public.


Long story short, I do not think Instagram is good for our society because I think a lot of people.


Really work hard on making their Instagram cool because they want.


To build that character in other people's heads, and I'm fully guilty of this, I've been guilty of this since before I even had any sort of following, when I just had friends and family following me on Instagram, I would post cool Instagram photos so that people would start to think of me like that.


In real life, in that would build my identity in their head and it's super bizarre, but, you know, also as long as you're not doing something harmful, I don't think it's a necessarily terrible thing.


Like I think a big part of it, too, for me is like I like to be creative with my outfits. I like to have fun with it. I like to post photos and like cool outfits that, you know, would hopefully inspire somebody. That's another huge part of it. But I think if I get too obsessed, then it starts to turn toxic and it starts to be like, oh, I want people that I know to think of me like this.


Coffee break. But. Listen. It's all about balance with social media, but I do think Instagram's pretty fucked, I mean, it gets me like if I'm going on it too much, I'm a mess. I mean, truly, because it's all fake. It really is. It's like it's it's a one it's one good moment in time. It's really it's like an Instagram photo. It's like a snapshot of you in your best moment. And that's really it's kind of a lie, and I think that that can be fun and inspiring, but I also think it can turn toxic really quick.


It's just all about looking at it in the right way. Next, somebody said San Francisco is way more beautiful than L.A.. Yes. But also L.A. does have some beautiful areas, maybe not L.A., but Southern California in general. I mean, like Malibu is fucking beautiful. Laguna Beach is beautiful, both like beautiful beach towns. There are some amazing, like hikes in nature around L.A. that are super beautiful. I mean, even if you go to a high viewpoint in L.A. and you look out and see the city, I mean, it's pretty, but San Francisco has a lot more nature.


It you know, the Bay Area in general seems to feel a lot cleaner. San Francisco is kind of messy. It can it can be a little messy. I mean, it's a city. What do you expect? But I do think San Francisco is prettier. But let's not take away from the fact that L.A. does have its pretty places. Right. Like, it's not all bad, but the city areas of L.A. are awful. Awful and gross and like just not cute at all, whereas, like, I feel like all those San Francisco is a little dirty maybe, and it's like city, you know, OK, we're going to see some we're going to see some piss on the ground.


We're going to see some, like water bottles filled with an unknown substance thrown all over. We're going to see trash bags. We're going to see it for sure. We're in a city. What do you expect?


But there's, I think, more beautiful architecture I found in San Francisco, the actual city and.


Also, there's just a lot more nature in northern California, I feel like a lot more. Green, you know, whereas in L.A., it's like a lot more built up. I don't know, that's just my opinion, somebody said emojis are fun and I use them a lot, I think emojis are so important and here's why. Sometimes you need to reflect your tone, and without emojis, it's virtually impossible to do that like.


I need to know that somebody is not being sarcastic with me, and the only way that I can know that is if somebody is using emojis truly. I feel like emojis are super comforting to like it really helps you understand, like the context. It's like if you say have a good day and you don't send any emoji, there's no punctuation, no anything. You just say have a good day. And you said that that could seem kind of backhanded.


It could almost be like, OK, have a good day.


It can almost seem like you're being short with them. Whereas if you say have a good day, heart, heart. So much nicer, you can almost hear their tone being like, have a good day, love you, you know, so I'm a huge fan of emojis and some people think that they're fucking corny.


I don't care. I think that they're so important and I use them consistently. Somebody said showering at night is better than showering in the morning, I really think it depends. I used to be a huge night shower because I liked going to bed with wet hair, weirdly like felt good, probably because my body temperature tends to lean towards the warm side. I tend to be warm and sweaty more than I am, like cold.


And so like going to bed with wet hair was kind of refreshing because it was like cold on my head and it was relaxing. So I used to like that also because I was not going to shower before school.


Fuck no. It was also I got to wake up later for school because my hair is already clean. I was already whatever my hair was dry automatically.


I didn't need it cut 20 minutes out of my morning routine, maybe even 40 minutes out of my morning routine. But now that I like how make my own schedule type of thing, I actually like morning showers better because.


You're clean for the whole day, you can get a workout in or get your sweaty activities in early in the day shower, and then you have the rest of the day to kind of exist and you don't have to think about your hygiene again. It's kind of amazing. So it depends.


Anyway. Somebody said, I don't know if this is unpopular, but people need to stop attacking teenage girls for just existing, like if you dress basic, it's bad. But if you dress differently, you're trying to not be like other girls. People just love having reasons to make fun of teenage girls for sure.


And I think call me crazy, but I think it's a lot of the times girls hating other girls and girls being jealous of other girls and. That's not to say that, like, you know, totally like guys do, I mean, this is not like a it's not just women hating on other women. Trust me, there's a lot of guys that are, you know, that will totally add to this.


But I do think a lot of it stems from, you know, girls really are not as supportive to other girls as they should be.


Being a girl is not easy. Being a human being in general is not easy.


Let's take the gender out of it for a second. Being a human being is not easy. And finding your own unique identity is even harder. OK? As much as we're programmed to judge others, I do think that we should all make a conscious effort and I have been working on this myself to not judge other people for what they like and what they don't like.


And, you know, just like. And not thinking that things are basic and not thinking that things are bad for being basic, I mean, I made a whole episode or a pretty decent amount of an episode about that on this podcast channel.


But I think that we just need to accept people for what they are and like not give a fuck what other people are doing.


Think about yourself. That's what I realized. As I'm getting older, I'm like, who cares what other people are doing? It doesn't fucking affect me at all. So I'm just going to mind my own business. And guess what? I turned out to be a lot happier that way. My life is so much better that way when I'm not, you know, judging other people for what they're doing. I'm not like, oh, like, you know, she's wearing a basic outfit.


What does that even mean and who does that help? That doesn't make me feel good about myself and that doesn't make anybody else feel good. That's just negative. It's there's nothing that you can gain from it. But listen, if you're somebody who, you know, judges, people for their style or judges, people for whatever, understand that like we're human, we're going to do shit like that.


It's impossible not to do that sometimes, but it's about making the conscious effort and being like, hey, OK, I'm doing this in like maybe I should just focus on myself and channel that energy into finding out what my own fucking identity is instead of worrying about somebody else's.


You know, I agree with this. Somebody said water tastes bad, I agree, I have a hard time drinking water without lemon in it, lime in it. Or it having a fuck ton of ice in it to a point where it's so cold that I can't taste anything because my whole mouth is. You know, on the verge of hypothermia, you see what I'm saying? So I agree, I do not think water tastes good. Sumi said L.A. is overrated.


I agree a little bit because especially right now, it's really crazy what's going on in L.A. It's like. Everything so you drive down like a main street in the middle of L.A., right, and where there used to be hundreds of stores, half of the stores are closed and up for lease.


It's crazy and it's sad and like, weird and it just doesn't even feel like a city anymore.


I also think that it's overrated because I think that. Now that we have stuff with Zoom and shit, I'm like, do you really need to work in L.A.? To be in the industry that I'm in, I don't know. That's something I'm starting to wonder because I'm like, it wouldn't make a difference if I lived in. Texas or Florida or. Vermont or New Hampshire? Would it make that much of a difference? I don't know. And maybe, you know, maybe once covid is over it because it's nice, it's like if I have a photo shoot or something, everything's always in L.A. so it's easier.


It's easier for that reason if it's for work. I think L.A. is not overrated because it's just necessary. It's like the Mecca for. Certain jobs, you know, but if. If you don't need to live here for work, I don't know, I don't know, it might be overrated. Like, I think you could move somewhere else if you don't need to live here for work. I do think it's overrated because I think it's not that great, although there are some areas in Southern California that are great.


I'm just more talking about L.A., L.A., like the city, the nitty gritty of it, you know. Somebody said Snapchat sucks and is so fucking boring, I. Kind of forgot about Snapchat, and I definitely kind of agree. It is kind of shitty, like it's not great. I think that, like the whole concept of Snapchat streaks can be really toxic because you can just be so shady with that shit. I think that, like, the story element is kind of like overrun because Instagram has stories now.


And so people just kind of use that. Yeah. I wonder about the future of Snapchat. I haven't used it in a long time. I think I might have even deleted the app off my phone, but. I don't know, I it gives me bad vibes, so I, I used to love it, I totally used to love it, but now I'm just kind of like a I don't know. So I get it, I think it is kind of it is kind of sucky, but I mean, not to say that they won't turn it around, you know, who knows?

Somebody said there's a difference between tick talkers and celebrities when it comes to being famous.


You know, I don't know any more. Because I think people think of like mainstream celebrities as actors, musicians, you know, stuff like that, but that may be changing.


But because we're in we're living it right now, we're not going to be able to know.


Whether or not take talkers and, you know, super viral influencers are celebrities and are considered that until 50 years from now, when it's in the past, like this is the first time this has ever happened, I don't know. Like, who knows? You know, who knows who people are going to remember forever.


It's so interesting. Who are the celebrities going to be in the history books?


I don't know. I think that. There may not be a different I mean, if you think about it, take talkers have. More followers than anyone else right now. So. And what is the definition of a celebrity being famous, you know, being followed by a lot of people, so it's like although they may not fit the mold because it's so new and different, it's still kind of is celebrity. It's just such a different form of it.


It's so interesting because it's like in the past, it was so much more structured. Who was famous? It was like the movie industry, the music industry. Well, I should have said the film industry, the film industry, the music industry. All of that would kind of choose who became famous, whereas now it's literally just based on a combination of luck and having a free app on your phone. And also, like, you know, being talented, too, don't get me wrong, like, you know, it's not all just luck, but I mean, it kind of is, though, to.


In a way. It's like if the algorithm didn't pick up your video and spread it to a lot of people that one day, who knows? And I think about that for myself, too, because it was it's like I didn't, you know, the the Internet. Chose to, you know. Give me the platform that I have, not a movie director not. A music label, a record label. Music label, Lord Help Me. A record label, didn't you know what I'm saying?


It's like. But even with like musicians and actors, you know, depending on like there's ways that you can that. You can actually succeed without a label or without, you know, maybe being in a mainstream movie, like, there's so many ways that you can, you know, build your platform by yourself. Not to say that there's anything wrong with, like, going the more mainstream route. I think that that's. If you have the opportunity to fuck and send it, but you know what I'm saying like.


Celebrity is so different now because it's so much more accessible to just about anybody, and that's going to be interesting to see, you know, what happens, somebody said sex is overrated. I don't talk about sex on this podcast because I. I'm so young in such a baby and I'm not allowed to talk about inappropriate things, but I think it's weird because sorry, I'm going on a tangent, I'm going off topic here. It's so interesting because I'm 19, OK?


And I've been on the Internet since I was 16 and. I weirdly feel this. Like. Discomfort when it comes to talking about more mature topics like sex or like alcohol, drugs, whatever, because I'm like, wait.


Everybody knows me as a 16 year old. I feel like still weirdly sometimes that I am that 16 year old that started my channel three years ago, four years ago or whatever. And so I feel like, OK, wait, can I talk about these things?


I almost feel like it's going to make people uncomfortable because I think people don't associate me with, like those things. But as I'm getting older, I'm like, wait, I want to be real with you guys about everything. And I'm getting older, you know? And so, like, these are things that I want to start talking about more. And like, I want to kind of break that boundary and break through that wall because it's it's almost weird that I don't talk about that shit because it's like I'm a 19 year old.


I'm almost 20, you know, like. I'm not a baby anymore, right, and so I. Want to start getting into this stuff as I'm getting older and start talking about more mature stuff because there's no reason for me to stay, you know, talking about 16 year old topics, it's just like not necessarily like we're all growing up, but also if you're like 13 and you're listening to this, just skip ahead.


Avoid thinking about sex for as long as possible anyway. I don't think that it's overrated. I think that. I think I get what you're saying, though, at the same time, like, I don't think it's overrated because I think if you love somebody and, you know, it can be such an amazing thing or if you just like. Think somebody is attractive and you want to do it, like fuck it, right? I mean, I don't think that I think that's great.


If if you enjoy doing it and it's fun and you're being safe, I don't think it's overrated. But I can see what you're saying about sex being overrated, because I think that as a society and on the Internet. Everything is very sexual. A lot of music is super sexual, a lot of like, you know. Viral take talks tend to be kind of sexual and provocative and, you know, even just like casual dating and just like having sex with a lot of people is really popular and all of those things.


Right. It sometimes can make it can kind of take away the spark of. It it can kind of take away the spark of sex, do you know what I'm saying? And. It's because, in a way. It's exploited. And listen, I'm not trying to be some sort of fucking old fashioned like, oh, you know, sex is only meant for two people. Like, no, I'm not like, no, I totally get it.


Like, but I also can see what you mean by saying that's overrated because it's like so much of the media and the way that we date now in our generation that's so casual and so like noncommittal can sometimes make sex lose its meaning. And I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with that necessarily, but I can see what you're saying by calling it overrated. That's just my perspective. I think that. If if you're worried about that, if you're worried about the fact that you feel that way about it, you know, just.


In a way, cut back on that lake, stop focusing so much on sexual things, whether that's with your partner or on the Internet, like whatever it is, if you want to fix your relationship with it, you just it's just taking a few simple steps to, you know, maybe fix it a little bit less on it and things in that. Relm. Somebody said relationships and marriage are stupid and pointless. I disagree and. Here's why do I think that like relationships, marriage, public law are necessary for everybody and are even positive for everybody?


No, I do not. But do I think that as a whole, they're stupid and pointless? No, because I'm somebody that's more of a relationship minded person. I like to have one person that's my best friend. Ideally that I think is cute and that. I I choose as my person, you know what I mean? And I like that, and then also, like, obviously as a human being, like, you want to be romantic with somebody, right?


I have a really hard time, like just being romantic with a lot of people because I just feel weird about it, not just me personally. Again, no judgment to anybody who enjoys that, blah, blah. Like, I totally get it, but it's just like not maybe for me makes me uncomfortable.


I like to have one person that I feel super safe with, that I'm in love with.


That is like my partner, you know what I mean? I like that. That makes me feel good. And when I and being, you know, ever since experiencing a healthy relationship, because I've been in a few relationships in my life and most of them weren't great, and that's totally fine and normal because I'm 19 like, what the fuck do I expect? But after experiencing a healthy relationship and seeing how much it can truly enhance my life, I will never believe that relationships are pointless again because there's so much security and.


Like unconditional love and a healthy relationship that you just don't get if you're not in one and. I also think that there's something really beautiful about building. A bond with one person. And it's just something that I do not think is is stupid and pointless, but at the same time, there are some people that just don't like being in relationships and it just doesn't work for them and for those people, all power to you go crazy. Never date again.


You know, I don't that's none of my business. But I'm just saying that I know that there's other people out there like me that just want to have one person and just want to stick with that person for as long as the relationship. Is. Healthy, balanced and good, you know. I don't know. You also have to think about when you get older, too, it's like when I get older, like I want to have a companion.


And I don't know, I just but I also have a very relationship minded person, so I just don't think that it's stupid and pointless. But I also think that, like, you know, for some people it may be. And that's totally fine. Somebody said school is actually fun, you know what, this is funny because although I left school junior year and I didn't really miss it, I also. Can't acknowledge that school actually had very fun moments, like there is fun moments at the lunch table with everybody laughing, there are fun days at school when, like, you know, you didn't have a lot of homework or, you know, maybe you had a short day and you and all your friends would go and get lunch after school like there's fun moments, you know for sure, football games, you know, even school dances and like.


Sneaking into the bathroom and talking shit about like it's fun. Not talking shit, but like being like, oh, my God, did you see Jeremy's suit, he's wearing a baby blue suit. That is so Justin Timberlake. I can't believe it. Like shit like that. Come on. It's so fun.


But I also think that, like, you know, in a lot of schools, the workload and even the pressure is like, you know, fucking. Life altering and awful, and so, you know, sometimes it's not fun, it just totally depends. But I think school totally can be fun and don't take those moments for granted, because I think I took a lot of fun moments in school for granted and was just so negative minded.


But I have some really great memories from going to school as much as it was also a fucking nightmare. There were good memories and I would be a bitch to say that there wasn't. Somebody said not responding to people immediately doesn't mean that you're ignoring them a thousand percent, like sometimes I just don't have the mental energy to have a tax conversation with somebody and I won't respond.


Yeah, maybe I'm kind of ignoring them technically, but it's not. In a devious way, sometimes I just leave my phone upstairs and go downstairs and cook something because I want to get off my phone, somebody might text me while I'm cooking. It might take me an hour and a half to cook something. And I go back upstairs and I miss their taxes. Not because I'm ignoring them is because I'm busy like but sometimes I also just don't want to fucking respond and it's not personal.


I just can't do it. I don't have the mental mental strength to do it. And it doesn't mean I hate them. It doesn't mean I'm even ignoring them necessarily. I just don't have it in me in that moment. Somebody said being religious doesn't make you a good person necessarily, I agree with this, I think that there's nothing on this planet that can define whether or not you are a good person except for your behavior, period. How do you behave on a day to day basis, what's in your heart?


Actions speak louder than anything else. What are your actions say about you, who cares what religion you are, what you fucking what you dress like, what you know? Declan is stop, you are so fucking annoying and dumb. Sorry, that was really mean. Declan, I'm sorry, I did not mean you're so sweet and perfect.


It doesn't matter what religion you are, you know, whether or not you went to college. What your favorite color is, I don't give a fuck. What type of person are you to your friends, your family, strangers to yourself? That is what defines whether or not you're a good person.


Somebody could be. A fuckin, you know, like literally swear by. Certain Bible verses that are super positive, but then, you know, go and cheat on their husband, it doesn't matter. It's about your behavior. It's about your actions. That's it. Nothing else matters. And that's why you should never judge somebody based on their religion or lack of religion or anything about them like that, because it doesn't matter. There's a lot more to a person than that.


Sorry. It's about what you do, not about what you preach, you know. Somebody said people should stop cancelling everyone for anything. I agree and disagree. I think that sometimes it gets taken out of. And in it's sometimes it's blown out of proportion, sometimes there's like lack of information, sometimes it's a rumor or sometimes. It's maybe not even somebody being a bad person, but it's just somebody who made a mistake and maybe they just need.


To be educated on something like nobody is perfect. Influencers, especially are not perfect, celebrities are not perfect, everybody on this planet makes mistakes, and celebrities and influencers are no different.


They make mistakes, I think when it's necessary is when someone is a genuinely bad person. OK, I get it, then that makes sense. But I think that there's a lot of people that, you know, have made mistakes and done things that like, you know, maybe they didn't realize were harmful and they genuinely are sorry, they genuinely apologize and they genuinely want to move forward. And, you know.


They're following educating them on, OK, this is why this is wrong, taught them something, I think that's a great thing. I think that. Understanding, though, that, you know, everybody's human, like we have to have a little bit of grace with one another, but also understanding that, yes, like it's I think that educating others on things that. You know, educating others on things that they may not know a lot about and educating others on how to be a more well-rounded, good person never hurts.


And I think that's a great thing. But I think that going straight to counseling can sometimes be bad because it doesn't leave room for somebody to improve. But I also think that there are some exceptions where some people will do some things. I mean, come on, like some people will do some fucked up shit. That totally makes sense. I'm talking about something where somebody may have said something insensitive that they didn't realize would hurt somebody else or, you know, maybe when they were younger, they didn't know, like they didn't know about the world yet.


And so they may have said something that, you know, could hurt someone else's feelings or just be insensitive in general.


But they didn't know because they were younger, it's all based on whether or not the person is a good person and whether or not they're actually going to change, because I think a lot of people and most people in the public eye want to change. They're like, fuck, oh, my God, I had no idea that that was harming other people. I am so fucked. Like never again. I've learned so much from being on the Internet about how to be a better person and about so many different things I didn't know about because, you know, people have brought it to my attention and I'm super grateful for that.


But what I'm not as great before is when there's no, you know.


When, you know, people start to say, like, well, Emma, you're a shady person. And it's like, no, no, no, I am doing my fucking best. I literally love and care about everybody. I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings. I just, you know, I'm not perfect. I like sometimes I'm going, something's going to happen that might hurt somebody's feelings. It's inevitable in life. And at the end of the day, I know that.


I just want to make everybody feel good and I want good vibes only like that's it. And I'm going to do my best to keep that the way that it is. Whatever. And I just hope that people, you know, would have a little bit more grace with it all, but I also think that in certain situations.
