by smart

franklin we are also also joined by not well temporarily taryn arnold what’s up that goes wild yeah get in here girl taryn is going to ask us our trivia question because we loved it last time the other time she asked us the trivia question was also with amy when we had both you and jack on um so taryn take it away hello ladies hi nice to see you both good to see you i’m glad to be here good day i should say um okay question is what percent of australians live on the coast of australia like like 95. i’m gonna go with why do you say 95 because no one lives in the middle because it’s hot i’m gonna go with 98. what is like the coast i know like yeah yeah like is your your house is considered the coast death so i don’t have the answer to whatever i’m going a little higher than amy okay so i’m hopefully right what is it maybe i should go 92. yeah i’m trying to read her face i know she’s subbing like 70. maybe she’s serving 90. oh it was 90. thank you ladies was that boring can i do a different one yeah yeah should i do a different one yeah okay wait i found a really good one chat while i while i pull it up okay she’s around and she’s attractive oh i should always have you do the trivia question i love not knowing what the question is that was very fun bible stuff yeah oh you got anything any religious stuff yeah no however tasmania right has the cleanest blank in the world uh like uh just like like everything like [Laughter] penis [Music] is it super specific it has the cleanest something in the world i’m gonna say like a beaches or like cleanest sidewalks oh no that’s gotta be singapore i’m gonna say air the correct answer is air you’re a true australian i’m from that okay i’m not from tasmania all right thank you darren i’ve actually never been awesome bye everyone bye wow that was fun you did great thank you you like basically got both right i’m gonna say i’m gonna round your percentage it was close enough it was pretty close well done i know things i lived there for 21 years you could not tell by the accent are you sad that your accent’s going away i’m devastated i’m sorry i know um i was going to prepare you for this next part but i forgot to tell you so take your time um we’re starting like a little new segment on the show where i’m asking every guest these same questions before we start um so the question is what is something that you’ve changed your mind about in the last six months it could be big it could be small it could be literally anything it could be skinny jeans to eating vegetables okay to politics i have one okay um so i used to think and i think that this is tied to adhd i feel like so many people are talking about adhd now but i have it and i got like diagnosed medicated all that and i think like whenever there was conflict or i didn’t like feel good about like something someone was doing whatever i always thought that i had to address it i always thought that there had to be like some conversation or whatever and that i’m have learned is completely not true at all like i feel like i’ve become way better at like processing it by myself figuring out why it makes me upset and then just doing that and then i love that answer yeah i think that’s i think that’s a process a lot of people go on where it’s like you don’t speak up about anything people really hurt your feelings you never give them the chance to like share their side and explain like oh no it wasn’t this yeah and then you get to a point where you over share and you like tell them every time they like blink at you wrong and it makes you feel something and then you go you can become introspective and you go oh it’s not about them it’s about me yes i’m gonna work through this on my own yes honestly like everything is a projection you don’t see things as they are you see them as you are and i am learning just to figure out like what my triggers are and then just like learn where it comes from and then let it go that’s therapy baby so true i love that okay next question very similar but what is something you think you have successfully changed someone else’s mind on in the last six months oh change someone else’s mind like have you learned something and then thought i want to share this with people like i know this fact now like i think a lot of people when they go vegan feel that way that they’re like oh my god and that’s why i think preachy vegans happen because we feel like we know all this stuff and we’re like if people knew yeah they’d stop doing this true you know what i mean yeah um maybe something about like taking youtube breaks is actually good because i think that there’s a very big misconception in youtube and i think maybe it used to be this way that like the algorithm really favors consistency or like your audience really favors that or i mean they do and that makes sense but it’s just impossible to come up with a good video idea weekly for the rest of your life that’s so daunting too to be like oh i never take a break no this just goes on and on and on and on that is just not the way and so i feel like i’ve been with my youtube friends been like if you need to take a break it’s always just better to take the break yeah and then you can come back as like something even like better than what you were doing when you were like kind of feeling low or whatever yeah you’re just not going to be happy with that content you’re going to burn out and need a longer break yes i think that’s a great point also like our favorite television shows don’t run forever they have breaks and that’s okay and creativity is all about input and output and if you’re just putting out there’s nothing going in so it’s just not sustainable those were really good answers i loved those thank you thanks amy you’re so welcome yeah um i get asked a lot from people online like how do you pick up and move i’m so scared and i think maybe it’s more of an american thing like americans travel a lot less they a lot of times people live in their hometowns forever you did a big move yeah possibly the the biggest move that you can do in this world right right it’s half it’s halfway around the world like you’re you’re as far away from home as you basically can be true is that true i don’t know i don’t know i think new york’s maybe a little father i don’t know yeah it’s pretty far i think like the fear of just staying in where i was born like my hometown for the rest of my life was way scarier than moving somewhere else that’s what i always say i’m like worst case scenario i end right back where i started yeah yeah so if that’s your worst case scenario you’re already in it yeah so like pack your bags honey it’s not true that is so true and life is so long like i could come and live here for 10 years and then i could go live in new york for 10 years and then i’m still only like 47 so true like that oh like i guess 41 because i’ve been here for six years now that’s true and then i still have 60 some years depending on how i mean there are literally so many people who don’t like even find their thing in their passion life until that late like i love this the thing about like vr wang didn’t design her first wedding dress right until 40 or 41. oprah was like broke yeah we gotta normalize not like figuring it out at like 18. i think we could i think that’s what we see the most because like athletes right they do it and they’re done in their 20s so then we’re like oh my god 30 is old it’s over it’s like that you’re just beginning yeah i’ve just started it’s so true and then also like with having a lot of younger friends which i have um i mean i have my older friends as well you’re welcome um like they’re like alexis bought a condo and so it’s hard not to compare myself at 27 to this 22 year old who bought a condo yeah you know what i mean but everyone’s just like on that like very different vibe i think that’s also what i’ve been learning is to just stay in my lane and just don’t compare yourself to other people and just do literally whatever you want to do and i wanted to move countries and you did it yes um talking about doing stuff late in life i was just thinking about taran and i are watching the show babe what’s it called my unorthodox life i would have watched that no no but i really want to fully should watch an episode after we record this and down it is so incredible but the woman who was i i don’t know she’s still like is religious at all or practicing but she was like deep orthodox jew like insane yeah and that’s what it’s all about and it is so wild because they were like talking about how they don’t feel prepared for the real world and i think that’s really parallel like moving a place and not feeling like prepared to handle that but it was so crazy and then she is like filthy filthy rich it’s insane and she didn’t she like started designing shoes when she left in her 40s and then now she like owns i don’t even understand it she owns like a modeling agency but it like is an umbrella for all these other companies she takes like a helicopter to the hamptons to stay at her hampton’s house she’s like it’s crazy i’m gonna watch this show but it’s so wild that like she had a whole life she had a ton of kids she spent like an entire lifetime that we haven’t even kids it’s kind of crazy yes she her and her ex like still share custody and then the youngest son is like really in it still like he just stopped watching tv he won’t talk to girls because he’s afraid talking leads to touching yeah not a lot of touch i had people at my school did you australia that you went on touch wow yeah yeah it’s crazy they just helped this girl like get out of it well she’s out of it but she’s still living with her parents and they like it was actually a really weird episode they like gave her a makeover and a vibrator and i’m like help this girl understand like finances or like what was she i think she was said she was like 19 or 20. okay yeah she was an adult but i’m like this girl doesn’t need to know how to have an orgasm yet she needs to like know that she has a safe space yeah it was a bit weird yeah it’s an entertaining show we will watch that is so weird i i guess i don’t know what it this show is about it’s wild it’s just his whole family that’s like i don’t know so some of them are religious some aren’t her older daughter got married right before she like left what is it called not leaving the church in this right what like i don’t know just she just left she left doing something different i don’t know i forget they have all the terms and they like tell you on the screen it’s really cool um but she had just married off her eldest daughter and then was like peace i don’t believe in this anymore she’s like scrooge he’s married yeah but no he’s really cool they’re cool they’re fine okay they’re like figuring it out figuring out what it means to them now okay that’s good sorry that was such a tangent it’s a really good show everyone go watch it i want to watch that show it’s really good that’s my life i’m getting it that’s why i came yeah um but that actually segues back to australia why did you come here i don’t think i know that was it for youtube um well i definitely i was like not happy with my home environment and i wanted to leave as soon as possible okay and so my parents told me i wasn’t about to move until i got my university degree so i like was doing university and i had a whole bunch of jobs and just so i could like get money to move and i wasn’t sure if i wanted to move here or to new york but definitely america yeah like europe hopping or anything no which is so interesting i know because i feel like every other country i actually don’t know what every other country thinks like haven’t been ever there but i think like you look at america as like the american dream yeah there’s so many opportunities there or we had a good marketing team yeah yeah some i don’t know something and so i was just like oh because even when you go sorry i think it was so uncomfortable i’m like for those that are listening and not watching i’m like fidgeting and moving pillows sorry i know i was like um and i went to new york like right after high school and it was like so it lived up to it magical and like so cool i don’t know i think that’s just it just seemed so dang cool it seemed cool is it did it live up um yeah i think so i mean it’s like tragic america like there’s so many many flaws very true um but there are a bunch of flaws in australia politics as well and i’m way happier here than i was there yeah so ultimately for me it was the right thing to do and also it was like at the time when like all of the youtubers were moving to l.a oh yeah and i was like what year was it that you came here i came here in 2015. 2015. oh yeah same yeah so in like february 2015 yes me too i got here february oh no i got here march first wow yeah i think it was like february fourth second or fourth wow cute oh my god um and it was a place to be in that career field exactly i had 4 000 subscribers so i wasn’t like moving in the same way that like you were like daily grace was you know i did not move here and was like youtube’s going to take off yeah what did you move here to do i just wanted to move because i was like living in dallas for a little bit but knew that that was temporary and then when trying to figure out i knew i wanted to be in like a big city that was like open-minded i was like new york la portland i’d never been to portland i don’t know why that was on the list i would like had never visited and then came here and stayed with my friend heather and then was like i love it and moved and ended up moving in with heather but i was doing just doing youtube straight away i was doing i had already been doing youtube but i also was doing ripple effect the clothing companies and that’s what i thought i was gonna like come and make that a real business and then youtube took off and kind of like took over yeah yeah see like i moved here and then got a job as a host at mendocino farms shout out really good sandwiches real real good vegan balmy no jalapeno delicious oh no leave the jalapeno it’s too spicy so i moved here with 4 000 subscribers and i was like i really really want to be a youtuber i knew jack and he had 6 000 subscribers and he lived in san diego and i had come like the january like the january before to just like visit l.a because i’ve never been here before and i stayed in a hostel with 11 other girls oh yeah it’s that one by the trading post yes the one by the time it’s pretty creepy now okay it was so much fun it was cute literally so [ __ ] fun like everyone we all went to universal oh i thought that turned out sorry we all went to universal together and we they would give us like free breakfast and free drinks and it was like so cheap and it was so fun and everyone was so cool everyone was well everyone was australian oh i feel like a lot of australians go stay in hostels yeah yeah i think americans do it less because it’s just not common here and because i forget the statistic maybe that’ll be the next question on the show but the number of americans that are like 25 and don’t have a passport or ever have a passport so we’re i just don’t think we’re used to that maybe because they think like america is the greatest so why would we go anywhere that they probably do expensive like right well i guess for australia it is too i mean like y’all are literally out there on an island yeah but i think a lot of australians will like stay at home for as long as possible and then work to travel that’s like what my friends did that’s really different gap years so they worked like six months and then for the second six months the year they like went all over europe yeah like is it correct that australians normally it’s like you live at home until like you like move like really move or like get married or whatever like is it it’s normal to live at home into like your 20s and stuff right yeah well i guess like i don’t know really like what other australians are doing because i just lived in like i was very much confined by this like jewish community in the eastern suburbs of sydney and i like didn’t really leave that at all like explore outside of that i didn’t really have any friends outside of that either and so that’s pretty much what like a lot of that community does they’ll like stay at home travel like every you know june july they’ll go somewhere and then get married and have babies and you said bye i was like that’s not gonna be like i’m outta here tell me about that just does not sound right to me was your family like down with all that i know that you said they wanted you to like complete school first yes but were they just like do what you want to do um they were both like they were like of course do what you want to do but also my mom was like you should stay that’s a typical moment yeah i feel like that’s just mom’s stuff every time i talk to my mom she’s like you could come here for a few months you work from home no literally you could move back here that’s what my parents say to me too and i’m like are you joking like it’s been so long like i’m not moving back to australia yeah um moms are crazy love you mom shout out to you girl um i saw the look in your eyes what was i i was just like listening to this thing and i was like this sounds kind of nice the noise of frank chewing there’s no way they can’t hear that that is loud you want some dog toy chewing asmr come here frankie oh my god yeah but moving countries was the best thing i’ve ever done how much did you bring money wise no like oh items oh i brought two suitcases and like mainly just clothes yeah did you bring like i don’t what do you bring when you move country i i literally don’t even remember like i don’t remember and you just had a bag and a dream and hopped off the plane at lax that is exactly how it went again um of course well i didn’t even i didn’t hop off at lax i went to new york oh yeah so february 1st 2015 i land in new york and my friend michael beck who is literally a tick-tock sensation let me tell you i know who you’re talking about you got him on your podcast right yes yes oh no podcast on my channel he’s so damn funny you should go watch him on take talk i think his thing is just michael back but um i went to his house in mayo pack new york and we decided to drive across country i met him wait this is so fun i didn’t know this are you serious yeah what are you talking about i didn’t know you drove cross country here it was so you had the full american tour it was incredible it was eye-opening like yeah there are a lot of places that i was like this is crazy like it’s just something that i had never experienced before like what um we would go to fields yeah but more like the the little tiny towns like in between each place you’d be driving for like two hours and then you’d come across this like three by three like three block by three yeah little town those have always fascinated me too like your whole life is just right here i know i was like how do they get the groceries like there’s a grocery store but like how did the groceries get to the store yeah i don’t know i thought it was so cool and strange and also like going to the south i we noticed and we thought it was so funny and it’s not funny it’s sad but um all of like the you know older southern men would only address michael like when we were both he said like one of we were at watabaga in texas which is so yum and um there was this older guy we were like ordering and he said to michael like you’ve got yourself a beauty or something just like weird things that to them is like kind and just how it is but then you’re like what so weird right yeah it was presumptuous it was so so strange but i think that is something that is kind of cool about america but all causes a lot of issues is that because it’s so big it and like not split up like europe has so many countries in it and then america is just this big area where we are there’s so many different places even just like not culturally like how it looks like you go to arizona and it feels like you’re on mars and you go to pennsylvania and it’s just like green for days so totally it’s like so different everywhere you go we unique over here but it was very very fun how long was your cross-country trip it was a month that is great that’s so fun it was really i want to do that you should honestly like it was such a good experience like we would just go we drive for like 10 hours whatever and then we’d stay somewhere for a couple days and we’d drive again you know stay for a couple days went to austin so far i love austin grand canyon florida oh you like you didn’t just go on a direct path new york to la you like went all the way down the coast to florida and then you you kind of like did an l yes well we went to florida because playlist live oh my god oh what a weird chapter i know so crazy so we went to playlist live and we stayed with like jack oh my gosh that’s so cute you really just like like i’m gonna explore and i’m gonna live my life gonna live a lot of people would never do that a lot of people are terrified to do that well they should maybe go do it go do it they should or they should they should go do it or they should be scared no yeah and but i never went like i’ve never been to europe mm-hmm so like i haven’t traveled like crazy amounts i’ve traveled a lot yes you yeah you’ve been here like fiji no you can you go to london oh yes oh yeah i have i would i went to london it was so nice i was like i swear i remember you went on a trip i did i went to london i’ve been to europe it was quick though right it was like a very short and that’s the only trip it’s the only time you went yeah okay you’re still jet lagged four days so it’s like not even being there like that was crazy it’s rough you just feel like you’re tired all the time yeah like the whole night i wanted to stay up and then the whole day i was like good night yeah yeah it’s a weird i think that’s the hardest jet lag i’ve ever had yeah but i would love to do like a summer in europe like backpack i can see you doing that you should do that yeah i feel like we should all do that let’s go pack the dogs up oh someone alright yeah could you imagine like frank in a little backpack on my back it’ll be more you and a backpack on his back that sounds fun i’m down with that i get tired i just take a little nap on his back simon do it he can do it um i want to talk about your career right now okay because as we talked in the beginning of the episode that it’s so important to take breaks and i think over the last like year or so you were like figuring out what your presence online looked like yes how that fit in with like your mental health and taking breaks and now i feel like you’ve found your stride you’re creating stuff that you love yeah i think that it’s sporadic but that’s okay because i think you want to make really high quality content you’re not just like bopping around vlogging on your phone random stuff yes i just shaded myself you’re making like productions and that takes time and effort and money and scheduling oh my coordinating the scheduling is tough yeah well you have like 10 people involved all the time so it’s yeah it’s a big to-do and it’s so enjoyable and it’s so elevated especially for youtube content there was no question there i just wanted to gas up your content and tell everyone to go watch it because it is it’s so fun um highly recommend watching the trivia game it’s good it’s really good it was you was so funny in it i was like die i love when you call me funny because you are so funny i find you so funny so i think that like when people i like a quality in them and then they call out that quality i’m like oh my god that is so cute are you getting a little teary-eyed because maybe i am no but okay are you are you ready are we crying um yeah no i think you’re so funny and you were really cracking me up while i was editing that because i was editing it on the way to yosemite and i was just like laughing and then it was bad i have the worst memory we did trivia if you haven’t watched it go watch it on amy’s channel you were really close i s i literally stay up at night mad at myself that i didn’t say that that picture was jack because i knew it and i like second guessed myself and i didn’t just say it yeah and i couldn’t stop thinking about the whole game so i think it really threw me off i want to rematch alexis she’s all i’m coming for you okay no i want to do that i want to do like you and taren v alexis and ava oh bring it on but not just me not just about me just about like of the lesbian stuff okay bring it on um anyways how like how has that been going how have you found a balance okay i want to know amy ordman’s secrets youtube oh take me to school okay so at the beginning of the panty i was living alone and i loved living alone before i had to stay when you could leave yes people could come over i was like this is the best like i’m never moving yeah you have to apply thing there oh that apartment was so amazing to me i don’t know it was like so nice it was the first time you’ve ever lived alone right yes i was like kind of nervous that i wouldn’t like it but then i loved it so panty started i wasn’t quite sure oh before that i had started making videos i was really excited about like the real housewives of west hollywood one like i loved those videos and then the cheerleading one that was so fun and so i felt like i was hitting my stride in that way yeah and then pandemic hit i couldn’t leave i couldn’t really film with anyone not really i couldn’t film with anyone anymore um and it was like driving me crazy and then i was really also hard on myself because i was like why aren’t i interesting enough by myself like there are so many people who are so good at like alex weiss cody ko um you know just like all of these people who just like film by themselves and i was like why am i so boring by myself no one would watch a video with just me blah blah blah and so over time i realized that that’s not my strong suit i very much like to exactly just bounce off other people and that doesn’t make me good or bad or entertaining or not entertaining it’s just like where i’m having the most fun and then i think that translates yeah as well yeah that is your forte of doing like you are so good at having well thought out things that are like planned and then you create this space for people to like ad-lib off of that and to be funny in this like story that you’ve created like none of it’s scripted but it’s like you you make the storyboard and then you’re like okay you run with this and then you make suggestions right and i think that is like i like i love people like cody koh he’s like one of my favorite creators he’s so funny but that’s like that’s a skill i bet a lot of those people don’t have that is so hard and like i i can’t act i hate that stuff i get so uncomfortable and i have the best time every time we film because it’s like it’s like handed to you on a platter of like still like all you have to do but what would you do in like this situation yeah and like gosh i don’t i don’t know anyone else with that skill oh my god so i’m so glad you leaned into it so nice um yeah so i just realized like i i’m not a commentary channel and there’s nothing wrong with that but it’s just not something that i am and so i like took off like four months or something like that i don’t know i took off four months and then i moved in with levi and then i and then the pandemic was like getting a little better so i was able to film with some more people and then so i put out like some videos and then levi left and the pandemic got way worse and so i was living alone but again in a roller coaster yeah so i took off another six months and wow yeah i didn’t realize it was that long and then that long ago yeah it was wow serious sevilla but i mean i was still doing dating straight rip and so then um yeah i just realized like how much i love to produce as well like the videos don’t always it’s not like all about me by any means like the real housewives of west hollywood video was very much also about like alex and alexis and i’m very comfortable with that like i don’t necessarily like need to be the star even though like the channel is like my channel or whatever i really like to produce i like to you know like get this set together get the people together like figure out what the video is going to be um so in a perfect world i would love to be making um a video every two weeks like that would be really good for me and like definitely manageable as well yeah like with the kind of quality that i want to have like the trivia one was so fun and then i’m doing another doing like the dating game with elle i can’t wait for that the contestants are so good and i’m so excited but it’s been you know tough with scheduling so i just like haven’t been able to do it yet i’m doing it next week and that’s okay it’s like right taking that pressure off of like no i have to get something up yeah every wednesday or every saturday or both are those the dates do i know it now yeah i get it right yeah yeah yeah yeah i got that question wrong in the trivia game i know which was so stupid guys i panicked but like there’s so much pressure in that and then you’re just like putting out not speaking on you but putting out like shittier quality things to you that you’re not proud of and then you’re like having those feelings of those that stuff’s not good enough and you’re not good enough and y’all it’s wild i think what a roller coaster people very much want something different than what like i mean i was doing in 2017 when i was making two videos a week like every wednesday and saturday um so those were very much just like get an idea do it right there figure it out throw it together put it up it can be five minutes it can be seven minutes you know like i don’t i feel like people don’t necessarily want that anymore like i think they want something longer they want something like a little more thought out um and that’s really what i enjoy to do as well and it just like feels good like i just feel like when you’re so excited about a video then that’s when like the people are excited about it yeah i mean yeah there are so many different types of audiences online that if you’re just doing what you love inevitably there are going to be other people who love that too so it’s like don’t force stuff to appease an audience that shouldn’t be your audience like it’s okay that might take time to then find your new people but like if you’re doing stuff that you’re super excited about bet me there’s a million other people who are going to be excited to watch that so true and i did lose a whole bunch of subscribers oh i lose every day honestly me too i wouldn’t say that um and but like the since i took those breaks like people can tell when you’re kind of forcing it you like have to do it you’re just like you know not being like genuinely happy yeah and i never feel good posting a video when i’m not feeling like my best and i feel like after those breaks because i i would speak to like my youtube manager you know like how they just assign you someone on youtube so i would talk to him and he would be like well like you have to keep posting or whatever and those people do not have your best interest in mind at all i was like wait what is that katie v thing and she’s like i’m working every day i’m depressed you guys don’t know anyway it’s like i’m old tic toc sound um it was like that related to that yes i was like i cannot really keep doing that like i really can’t especially because the people weren’t even enjoying the content you’re like this isn’t good for anyone involved here what am i what am i doing exactly i was like why am i gonna keep like forcing myself to make videos if no one’s gonna watch them anyway yeah so i decided to like take that long break and i was like worst comes to worst i’ll be a waitress and that’s fine i’ve done it before i’ll do it again i think that takes pressure off when you’re like i have backups and i’m okay with those backups right i’ll just like do that and then do something else yep um but youtube is my passion hey darren hi um youtube is my passion yeah and i love it that was cute would you ever like you love producing would you ever scale that bigger and go produce on other things and other like shows and even like hulu netflix would you do that yeah yeah like it was darker know anyone hulu netflix amazon i give her a call yeah that hbo max [Laughter] honey none of them are listening but that i would that would be so fun to like produce on like a real housewives you know like a bravo situation like i love oh not even like a parody like you would go produce on like one of your faces that would be incredible i feel like that’d be so much fun but then also like i would love to eventually produce like a reality show of my own ah fun um do it right right right i just feel like i need to you know for the time being i really want to focus on my youtube channel and that’s why like dating straight ending was kind of like a blessing in disguise because it was very much like it was dependable i knew like especially during the pandemic i was so grateful to have it because i didn’t have like any other sorts of income for anyone listening who does not know which i’m sure is none of you but just in case uh amy had a podcast with her other friend jack dating straight super super funny incredible but they ended it because jack was moving and starting a different job and yeah got cancelled the podcast got cancelled i mean so did mine and i said whatever no well that’s what like initially we wanted to like going yeah the shock of it getting cancelled we were like oh my god like this is crazy whatever and um because we really did i mean i felt like it was like kind of taking off yeah honestly yeah so i was like i can’t believe it’s ending now like it’s just beginning we’re like just back in the studio now yeah um like doing podcasts from home is like was really really hard for me i don’t know yeah it sucks it’s just it’s tough especially on zoom yeah and like with the social anxiety that i have like talking to a new person and then like accidentally cutting them off or like talking over them or like oh there’s so many awkward moments yeah yeah and it’ll just like pain me my zoom will freeze and i’ll try to like pretend like it doesn’t happen and hope that i can guess what they were saying yes oh yeah yeah and it was hard it’s hard so we like felt really good about it we’re like finally we’re back whatever and then we got cancelled and i was like no what do i do now holy [ __ ] like i really and i was already planning on like coming back to youtube anyway but um we got a little appearance from riggins real quick but it just the timing was just right and then while we were waiting you needed that little push like get out of your safety net that is the podcast get back to what you really love yes yes and i like during the pandemic i felt like i could not do both i just could not do both and um yeah it it just freed up a lot of time a lot of brain space to like do stuff that is just so because dating straight was like exciting but very nerve-wracking for me but youtube is like just exciting and like a little nap backing like a healthy little dose yes yeah like it like keeps you excited yeah like when we did the sorry no good when we did the real housewives video i was really nervous as well i don’t know if you remember you were nervous yeah i was i don’t remember that you were nervous when you got like you know six people in the room and you just have to like figure it out you don’t want to waste anyone’s time you don’t want like everyone has to be comfortable because you are doing a big production but you’re like you’re the camera person the director the producer and acting in it all at the same time where like i mean that’s just is the reality of doing content online like you’re wearing 80 hats and you probably only do one or two pretty well and you just have to wing it for the rest of them yeah that’s nerve-wracking but i think it’s great that you’re like honing in all these skills that have been passions for so long that if in the future some like opportunity comes up where it is like for a big network or something you’re gonna feel so prepared and like be able to talk to everyone too because you’re like i did that i did that job and i did that job so now i can bring you all together i wonder like i don’t feel like i would be prepared to like be a real producer for a show i think like of course there would be certain things to learn but i think you’d be you would surprise yourself maybe at how well you you already are doing all that just because it’s on youtube on your channel doesn’t make it any lesser value or less important you know what i mean it’s the same it’s the same thing i guess in a way i think it is in a way but i think the skill that you have that’s something that can’t be taught is that like you just go for things and i i don’t think you realize how rare that can be like just picking up and moving like this whole episode was about you just being like i’m gonna do this because this is what i want to do and it’s terrifying and there are a bunch of down moments that i’m gonna have to push through but you you did it and you continue to do it and that’s like a a big character trait that a lot of people don’t have thanks i don’t know if i like i think at 21 i was bolder than what i am now who was it much more comfortable we live and learn we have burned many times and then it’s like oh i know i moved here and immediately got scammed to the gods was awful um yeah that’s crazy hi riggins do you have something to say i felt like going back to australia was just like not an option no to me no like at all that’s what i was telling jack on his show for uh [ __ ] where does he work i don’t remember [Laughter] but i was telling him he was like what is a piece of advice that you would give to someone whatever for like achieving your dreams and i said i don’t know if this is good advice but this is just what i really thought yeah i only had a plan a so i had to make it work there was no plan b i kind of loved that and well i don’t know if that’s i get how that could be a little iffy advice totally but it was like no this is i know what i want so yeah you i think technically you did have other plans but it was it was all a means to the same end you were like this is my end result how i get there doesn’t matter it doesn’t matter which plan i take this is what i know i want for myself so that’s where i’m going yeah are you not into manifesting yes yeah yeah yeah that’s very big i love that riggy’s head in this video has just like covered my head you want a host she’s like mom time’s up oh oh bye reagan she’s all good baby um but before we do wrap up like on on that note of the info you were giving to jack like what is advice that you would give to people wanting to well yeah no let’s keep it broader what advice would you give to younger people going to chase their dreams like how how do you do that and have that conviction like you said there’s no other plan i’m just doing it you really really have to believe in yourself and if you can dream it you can achieve it literally like i know that that’s just like a silly little quote but it’s true like your dreams are oh i was reading in a book i don’t i think it was glenn and doyle’s book untamed i think um and she said like you use your dreams as like a map of what you do next maybe it wasn’t her maybe it was renee brown’s book i don’t know one of them you should be yours now those books those are really really good um manifesting like writing what you’re grateful for and then writing like every what you want your life to look like exactly and like visualize that and then your brain does a thing and it like goes makes it happen yeah and it goes okay universe let’s go totally like take little steps to like if you have that goal then you’re like automatically doing little things meditating is really good is that how you manifest you write it down is that what you do well i journal uh like almost every day and then i’ll to really manifest i’ll like go sometimes i’ll like go to the beach and like talk to the moon all the stars the ocean or like whatever like say exactly what i want out loud like to like the most specific little teams like anything and just really go for it i love that that’s pretty much it journal meditate read i need to journal more everyone says that and i’ve tried a couple times and i always get out of it i need to find a way to make it sick it’s really good for you i’ve been generally hardcore since 2017 wow a lot of journals taryn’s really good at journaling too i need to step it up and i know that i like enjoy it it’s like it’s almost like working out to me it’s something that i know i love but then when i get off of it i’m like i don’t want to do that you know yeah you can do it i can do it i will do it yeah if you want to do it you can do it yeah do i want to do it i think i want to do it i feel like there’s no downside and then it’s always like so funny to look back at like journals like sometimes i’ll just flip through my like channels from years ago and i’m like wow oh my god that is all so much see that’s fun to have because i don’t keep anything i like i don’t like clutter i will it could be the most sentimental thing i’ll be like i don’t need that throw it out but i think journals are really fun to have because one like if you guys are watching this we have a ton of books i love books i love the way that looks that like i won’t throw journals out i have a box full of journals or like display them literally but then if someone’s like at my house and reads them oh i don’t like having my thoughts on paper that’s scary well um that’s they’re they’re crazy if they do that yeah i shouldn’t have those people at my house i guess literally that’s a real problem yeah exactly yeah and i like we’ll put little pictures in there like little movie stuff stick them in okay i’m gonna start doing this i’ve decided it’s you should should we go get journals right now i have a whole bunch okay i’ll go get you i actually have a whole bunch too because i never write though use them girl okay last final thing if people could take one thing away from listening to this episode what do you want them to learn from you how are they going to get a little less uneducated from listening to this um i feel like can i say the same thing that i just said have a little routine like a little like there’s do a little research about meditating because it’s so good for your brain and um do that do it yeah do that all right guys go journal go meditate go manifest it’s it’s a sorry it’s a learned thing so you’re not going to be like amazing at it if you’re not good at it the first time you do it it’s that’s why i always stop yeah i don’t like doing things that i’m not good at you exercise it and you get way better at it okay i’m gonna do like a like a 30-day get into journaling and meditating or something like that there are so many programs online because is that how many days it takes 30 32. it’s like make it happen yeah i don’t know well i’m gonna do a challenge so if you guys want to join me i’ll post about it on the uneducated instagram but i really want to journal so i’m gonna do that i’ll do it too you already do it well maybe not like every day i will do it okay thank you for being here tell the people tell the people where they can get to know you more um youtube and instagram amy admin she makes videos when she [ __ ] wants
