Oh man, there is so much more inside! This was cool, kind of a Postsecret meets Humans of New York. Some of the secrets were pretty upsetting, some were funny, some were shocking, and some made no sense to me.

I loved the woman with the dog secret in the first video!

It was also fun to think about what secret I would tell in that situation.

From one of the crush videos:

Woman confessing to crush: Every time I see you, my heart is in the floor. You amaze me in every way. You're just the sun, dude. You make my life so much brighter. I just wanted to tell you that I love you.

This woman is so precious.

One I did not link to above was maybe the hardest to watch, and is here:
What's the most painful thing you've been told (Part 2)

In it, one sensitive soul recounts how they never really fit in with their family and at 16 was dragged away by 2 strangers in the middle of the night and sent to one of those "wilderness treatment programs", how it affected them - how some of their friends were sent out of the country where they have no legal rights until they are 25. It is crushing. There is a link to this person's new music, which is how they are trying to rebuild their life.

This is maybe weird, but I love watching these videos almost exclusively to stare at all the faces. There's something about the way she shoots, plus the diversity of people she chooses, that I find very compelling. Like, I love looking at the skin textures, and eye bags, and crooked noses and everything else - everyone's so goddamn lovely to look at. I find it to be a real breath of fresh air compared to FaceTuned instagram everything, plus as a painter I like to think of the ways in which I'd capture each individual's je ne sais quoi.

That was THE BEST. And he loves her back!!!!! I hope they make it since she's moving.

In other news, someone I know who is married has a long distance crush on a dude (yes, her husband knows about it) and she even said to me "he's my sunshine." D'awwww.

I am happy to say that my favorite, Aislyn, is giving an LDR a go. :)
