How do you always stay so positive? I know you can't be happy all the time, but you always seem to have a smile. How do you get through the unhappy times?

Easy! I just don't show you guys when I'm upset. Either I work through it or I watch my favorite TV shows or read my favorite books until I've cheered myself up.

I was really miserable for most of my time at college, and I was also vlogging almost every week of that time on fiveawesomegirls. Because of that, I'm pretty miserable in some of those videos. It not only bums me out to go back and see myself like that, but some commenters get complainy when they see me feeling a way that they don't think I should be feeling (despite the fact that they can't possibly see everything that's happening in my life to judge that). To avoid that, I've tried since then to stay as positive as I can online. Though I can't please everyone... one person was angry that I didn't cry in one video.

Now that I'm out of college, anytime I get upset, it helps to remind myself that at least I'm not in college anymore. Things are a lot better now, definitely.
