What people don’t get about team internet.
SO team internet, we are a random group of people, you have people like Grace Helbig who is having a fucking TV show come out this is a big deal, but what people don’t get is that every time I sit down at home or in a bookstore and watch a youtube video of Tyler Oakley or Mamrie Hart I feel like they are my friends, I feel like I know them. I laugh outloud and I cry from laughing so much. They don’t just act like they care they have things they care about Connor Franta raised money to build wells for people how fucking cool? Tyler Oakley raised money for suicide privitin. And Hannah Hart got people to work together in communities to help the world be better. I mean thats just a few what people or some people don’t understand is that we don’t just find people online to talk to and get in trouble with no…. we work together as an online community to make the world a better place to be alive in together. We want everything to work together. We want to live in an earth that’s more amazing than ever. I like the way we can work together.
No the internet isn’t always safe, there is a lot of bully and stuff but when you go to a youtube page, like scishow and you learn about something that in school you should have learned but you somehow you missed it or someone just didn’t talk about it. To me shows like Scishow make my life better, I love learning and people never took me (still don’t) seriously when I talk about science and when I watch these videos or have a convo in the comments it makes my world a little better.
What you need to understand is that team internet is not just a bunch of weirdness its an amazing platform that holds a bigger world than you know. Yea people are all different but the internet makes the world smaller and when I find someone that says something and I go you like the “vlogbrothers?” and they look at me like what? Thats what makes the world funnier and better because we are DFTBA!! We are working together to make the world less suckish.
My first time I got on youtube for real was in 2009 it was super late at night and I had this boredom deep in my sleepless soul. I watched a video by rhett & link and I laughed outloud in the middle of the night, my world changed I found people who lived in my state, and were making videos, Rhett & Link now live out in Cali, they followed their passion and they blew people away with the laughter of others. Thats what team internet does. They gave me hope that I could follow my weird passions even if my passion was just writing a blog post or making a weird video.
Its not that the world online is nicer or anything its that its just different. I remember when I found this girl with blonde hair and she was weird and she was surely random, Grace Helbig would become a youtube video I would watch all the time. I would laugh and I would giggle at all the weird things. I watched Juilian Smith and would not be able to stop laughing people would have no clue what I was laughing at.
I still go back and watch the video “Trees Hate You” because it makes me laugh so hard that its my goal in life to be able to be that random.
The internet and Team Internet and team DFTBA is not just a good thing its being able to say I’m hartosexual and someone going me too. And both of you being able to find a place and for me to feel like I can watch a video on the internet and I can maybe chase every dream I have.
People that make youtube videos we all know they start off really small, they make these videos because they just want to. I love being able to see Tyler Oakley and Grace Helbig on cable TV because they have been apart of my week for a long time, they have made me laugh and made me think.
I don’t think people when I say I watch Youtube videos I don’t think they get it that what real happens when I watch a youtube video mostly everyday and these people that I don’t know are like weird friends, they make me feel less like I live in a world full of people who don’t understand.
We are the people who will No we are changing the way people think, there are videos about coming out and about being true to yourself on the internet, we are team internet we are DFTBA we are amazingly fantastic and we will we are changing everything, the world needs people that understand the giggles of a miranda sings video and why I wake up 20 minutes earlier a lot of times to watch a Good Mythical Morning episode and why I like to sit on sundays and watch Danger Dolan and why when I don’t know how to do something I google it. Or when I need to feel like I am better than this I watch Sprinkle of Glitter videos and why I like the way I am because if I can be this random and no one likes me where I’m at I can be liked by some on the internet.
If you ever feel like life isn’t great or is very suckish then remember that people on the internet and all over the world are trying to make it less horrid. I know the world might not be great all the time and when people are rude or stupid you can get really mad but remember that people are working so hard to make the world less suckish. I love what Youtube has done for the world. Its brought us closer. Its made everything different in a good way.
You see the YouTubers you watch become friends, I remember when I found O2L videos and thought to myself these guys came together and made something wickedly random videos, they all made me laugh.
Youtube, people who blog… People who have a job through the internet is amazing. Just so you know, life sucks but we together can try and make it suck less…. Just like the vlogbrothers say
The world is made up of all kinds of people, let the world be better, and also let them be amazing. Life will get better….
I love finding people on Youtube like ServiceDogVlogs (Tatianna) who has the awesome videos and a great singing voice and she talks about stuff like shit people say to service dog handlers and you have people like The Clairty Project (Clare) who makes videos on what its like to be awesome with a chronic illness and she just talks she did theses reviews of red band society and made me want to watch the show so I could keep up with her reviews. Both Clare and Tatianna make videos on life with chronic illnesses. Its how you look at it. And they are amazing,
We are going to change the world, we are changing the world. We make everything so different and the way people start off real small give people hope that maybe we can all be awesome people, because we are all awesome person but every now and then we forget that we are awesome and that we make the world more amazing by just breathing in. People like Sam Pottorff I have randomly laughed at his videos but he also talks seriously about things and he seems so raw sometimes, as a lot of the YouTubers do.
There are things like VidCon and playlist live and all kinds of things because we as a whole make the world weirder more random and we are learning as team internet that we don’t have to agree on everything but we have to care and love each other. We don’t want hate and I think team internet will be the ones to change that. I think we will laugh as the videos we watch and all the blogs we read have made this world a more easier place to live. Its hard to know where to stand on everything but we have the world at our finger tips and its amazing. So here is to team internet and all the people who are all about being as random as fuck. This people is how you team internter YouTuber style, thanks for making videos keep it up
