    Hey guys,

    Sorry that this video is not exactly what I normally post. This topic has been weighing on my mind for the longest time now and I just really wanted to make a video about it and express my opinion on school, dropping out, etc. Thanks for bearing with me this week.

      Joana is one of the most sensible teenage utubers out there who does use her ability of being a utuber to connect with people in positive manner and to put outta healthy massage instead of just brooding abt how shitty their life is..when they r the only ones who can put an effort to bring it in place.... Sorry but Emma if u can leave ur squad for a bit and stay with Joana

        It's exactly why I admire Joana more than Emma.....not comparing them..Emma is indeed a great utuber but she needs to realize that education to a certain level is necessary school may tear ur life apart or screw the hell outta it but that's surely for a reason to make ur existence in this world a bit more justified.....start loving ur school days cuz they r gonna be one of the biggest nostalgia in ur lives....there's a lot to learn and education can never be useless

            Joana I love your videos and this one specifically, but I have to disagree with you in one specific point, the mental illness aspect.
            While yeah some people label simple normal day to day stress as mental illness and use that as an excuse to not get through with tasks, some people actually suffer with hindering symptoms of disorders often caused by school (depression, anxiety, etc) in a level that does affect their life and productivity - those levels are what constitute a disorder instead of just day to day normal emotions.
            So yeah life is not a walk in the park all the time, but, for some people simple things can lead them to full mental spirals that result in mental and physical struggles (my anxiety and depression make my body ache and shake and heart rate to change, sometimes keep me from sleeping properly as well as just eventual panic attacks).
            Some people may use this as an excuse, but some people are actually disabled and should be taken into consideration, because they can't be a functioning member of society if society only seeks certain types of people as optimal to be in it, making it harder for people like me to fit in.
            Aside from that little thing though, I really appreciate the video and I think it is very important. And even for people with actual depression, self deprecation jokes can make it so much worse so even if things are terrible one should never put their own mindset down.

              I actually love a video from Mother Goose and your father explaining on how exactly they raised you because there needs to be more children raised like you I have an almost 2 year old that i hope has a deeper awareness about life like you have this needs to be shared

                LOVE this message! My entire childhood my mom was back in college throughout her 40s to get her degree and credential all while working and being a mom full time. She had to do night classes part time and what would have been a 5 year degree took 11 years!! She always instilled in me that even though I might not want to at the time, I should put my education first and foremost before settling down because, like her, I would eventually realize I want to go back. I'm 22 and just finished my B.A in Biology and have one thing off my plate that will help me throughout my life. Don't tell yourself you can't do it, YOU can! You got this!

                      just adding in a point, mental illness is not something to joke about.

                        I completely agree with you with the mental illness portion. I do suffer from anxiety, but I’ve been able to distinguish between good stress and bad stress. I know that studying stress and test stress etc are good stressors and the more I am put under stress and then come from it successful the better I’ll be able to handle the stress. On top of that, though, I do have stress from the fact that I have school, practice, work, five clubs, two honor societies, and I attend an academy which has its own work load on top of that as well as volunteer hour requirements. Sometimes all of that is just too much when I already have anxiety, and it causes breakdowns. I just have to take a step back and remember why I’m doing all of it, and see if there’s anything I would want to quit. The answer is always no, because I chose all of my activities because I’m interested in them and love participating. Sometimes things get hard and it’s important to remember why you do it

                            Okay, so I have a lot to say about the mental health stuff. So, I have bipolar 2 (so I'm basically always depressed), I have GAD and a panic disorder. I've been through really bad lengths of times with these, especially in school. Now, here are a few things- 1. If you tell yourself you're going to fail, then proceed to not try, you are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. 2. At one point, I went through a period after an abusive relationship where I had agoraphobia and was terrified to leave the house, and I was struggling bad with my mental health. I did poorly in my classes, but I also had a real reason. 3. I developed testing anxiety. Why? Because I knew I probably didnt study enough, or I put on too much pressure for myself to focus during the test so I'd freak myself out and panic. How did I get rid of it? I studied enough that I felt like I could trust myself to do well. When you dont leave any room for questioning yourself, all of a sudden, the anxiety goes away. 5. You have to hold yourself responsible and not use your mental illness as an excuse, unless there are real extenuating circumstances.
                            Over the past 3 years I've been working on my bachelor's degree, I've gone through 2 hospitalizations, severe depression, a manic phase, agoraphobia, test anxiety, and an abusive relationship. At the end of this semester I graduate with it and then I'm off to grad school. College isnt for everyone, but dont let yourself be the reason you hold yourself back. High school on the other hand, get through that shit. Or get a GED. There are so many schooling options now, there's hardly any excuses.
                            But also remember- you got this. You can do it.

                                        School is useful, especially when you take advantage of it. I know so many people who graduated who didn’t even try and apply their education to real life. School helped me with communication and writing skills, and developed my analytical skills. Obviously major in something useful that will help you in your career path.

                                              Once you said that the average age in your channel stats is 24/27 yo. This is no surprise to me :)
                                              Not only you are extremely funny, but you have also the ability to develop your own original ideas and the capacity to express them in a very clear yet elaborate way. I'm 28 and I really enjoy watching your videos (and I'm not a creepy maniac, I promise!). I like that you don't put yourself in a box and you have your own intelligent opinions.
                                              I like the fact that the life you are sharing with your youtube audience is the crazy/normal life of a person your age (with parents being part of your life, school, sports and wathever you enjoy doing). I may sound super "old" saying this, but it's so alienating to see all this perfection and unreal fake standards all around. Enjoy University and try to keep up with your yt channel, we need people like you!

Just because you wont need this in your day to day life... you need to learn it to graduate and that's it. So you either learn it now and graduate or you learn it in an extra semester of high school and graduate late.

My mom dropped out of high school and got her masters degree with five kids later. I had to work, earn money and babysit babies. I did my mom-thing then. I didn't put academics first, and I paid yet again, too. We had issues at home. I get no thanks, but that's okay. I love my sibs.

That feeds their egos. It's like, tell me you don't have time for the person's problems and to deal with issues privately. I would agree with some of what you said here, too, but I have days where I sit and stare or walk all day. I stopped going to school because I felt like I was wasting the government's money, and it stresses me out. I can only handle self-paced classes. Anyway, I'm used to people bashing me for word salad, which is something I deal with in the morning especially. I yell at Alexa, the virtual, like Siri, assistant the answer to the daily riddle. It took me about ten minutes to get "it's a road" to the digital princess.

I'm supposed to right all wrongs in the world with my super powers.I'll inspire you. Never give up! I have been around the block in this academic ride. Wow, I can't even count how many I've been to. On my self-discovery missions, I've decided the best schools are the ones that teach you how to study and navigate through information. Of all the schools I went to, Mizzou was the most useful. A lot of students don't care as long as they pass and get to earn enough to chug down Starbucks and go to lunch with the ladies. I actually care about what I put in my brain more than just songs. It's a demand from my brain. Don't ask. Millions of years of evolution has caused me to obey my mind in desperate situations.
