The rain has come and gone, and it looks like the sun is starting to shine.
Let’s be honest, though – that doesn’t really make up for the fact that the rain ruined our music festival weekend.
While we are all disappointed that Y Not was cancelled, at least we are out of the mud and can catch up on the YouTube we’ve missed over the past week. So, without further ado, here is this week’s Round-Up.
Chester. | PeteJams
So many people were affected by the death of Chester Bennington, us included. We still can’t believe he’s gone.
A lot of people have been tweeting, blogging, vlogging, etc about how the loss of Chester has made them feel, paying tributes and sharing their covers of his songs. Unfortunately, we can’t share them all, so we’ve nominated Pete Bucknall to be the spokesperson for all of us. In this video he reminds us that it’s okay to not be okay, and it’s okay to talk about it.
Why You Need a Job | DreamOnMaddie
Madeleine Drury is here to remind us why we should all get a job.
In life, there’s always a lesson to learn. Although we may spend our days dreaming of a life without our nine-to-fives (admit it, you do too!), Maddie snapped us back into reality this week showing us some of the positives of our jobs.
Why Your Mild Depression Matters | Craig Simmonds
Craig Simmonds is very, very good at being honest online. His poetry, photography, vlogs, and filming style are always so beautiful. But this one is a bit different.
This week, he sits down in his room and talks openly about his experience with depression. Dedicating this video to the people that may be unsure about their mental health, we think this is the exact video some people may need, especially with university right around the corner.
Coming out GAY to my 5 year old brother | OliverVlogss
If you haven’t seen this video by Oliver Potter, what have you been doing this week? In his adorable coming out video, Oliver captures his little brother Alfie’s reaction and honestly, it’s the cutest thing we’ve ever seen.
Since we first covered this video, it has spread like wildfire, being shared by international news outlets and all over social media. It’s since racked up almost a million and a half views. Utterly deserved in our opinion!
A LONDON TOUR OF THE REBELLION #ad | JustKissMyFrog
History is so fascinating, and it’s even more interesting and joyful when you learn something completely new! This week, Leena Normington brings us that joy.
Leena paired up with Pan Macmillan and Anna Kessel – the author of one of our favourite books, Eat, Sweat, Play – to bring you some of the history of women in sport. During the video, they talk about some amazing women and hang up their much-deserved blue plaques, and we’re certain it will hold your attention from start to finish.
Don’t worry, we always have a few videos more for you!
Melanie Baker brings us another beautiful song. She jokes that she calls this one “an existential crisis about what I’m actually doing with my life”, but we will call it Feel It until she tells us different.
