Sam is in therapy. She mentions the bitch on every podcast and now Alyssa has the same therapist. The therapist was on the podcast in the first season. All of them are crocks of shit and fake woke/deep. Sam loves playing the victim and wants the attention of being a sAd GiRl.

yeah I too was shocked by how intelligent she is when she speaks! I think intelligent people are more likely to be depressed. Life is meaningless and intelligent people are not satisfied with that.

do you guys know why she is so depressed? was she depressed always throughout her time on youtube? i wish she would share more about why/how/what makes her depressed, because she's really relatable in that area
That's not true. Higher intelligence is correlated with happiness and better life satisfaction. Sam is maybe a few points above average intelligence, enough to regurgitate things she reads online. She's "relatable" because she's average lol. If she were smart, she'd have figured out a way to change jobs or use her current audience to build some sort of business or something.

I agree that Sam is (at best, imo) of average intelligence, and her analyses are usually poor recitations of other people's thoughts without any critical analysis of her own. If you ever hear what she has to say in live, unedited situations, she often has a very poor grasp of the topic. When she doesn't have the opportunity to prepare, she lacks the ability to approach a concept critically. And tbh, it seems obvious to me that her preparations come from social media and online sources several steps removed from the original analyses, which is why she slightly misunderstands or lacks nuance. I personally think she's someone who could've really from benefited formal education. There are people who can engage with a topic and think about it critically without that primer of formal education, but I don't think she's one, especially after having watched a lot of her periscopes. I think it's been very important to her on a personal level to seem different, deeper and more intelligent than other beauty gurus, so she has crafted that impression by valuing things other gurus don't. But I don't believe she actually is more intelligent than most beauty gurus--she just represents herself differently.

why do you think higher intelligence is correlated with happiness and better life satisfaction? "Ignorance is bliss" are words of gold. All things held constant, the more simple your brain, the more likely you are content with just simple pleasures that ultimately lack meaning.

This isn't a depression or intelligence discussion thread. Please keep posts strictly related to Sam.

Thanks!

Is it me or does she always over do her eye looks. The Morphe video had such a cute eyeshadow look, but she just keep adding and darkening and it the end it looked unblended and muddy. Sam should have stopped halfway through.

I was just popping in here to see if anyone mentioned this video. The look turned out horribly and was so unbecoming. If you use a large screen to watch the video you'll see the shadows are patchy and don't blend well at all. She keeps layering because she's trying to hide it in the final look. The dark purple shade was completely eaten alive by the neon pink until she added the black which also looked like crap. Then she had to do a cut crease to hide more of the fading that was happening while she was running her mouth.

Why didn't you show a close up, Sam? Because you usually show a close up, especially when it's a hot button topic/product. hmmm. She's making excuses throughout the entire video and had to go through quite a bit of work to even get a partially passable look which was only made so because she added liner and lashes. Who wants to do all of that every day, or even once a week, just for makeup?! No one, unless they're trying to suck up to Morphe or ABH.

Any credibility she had left (did she have any, though lol) is out the window with this one. Probably should've stayed away from Morphe x Jaclyn, Sam. If you want to kiss Morphe's ass wait for someone a little less problematic.

Obviously something in her life is still making her feel depressed, but change is scary so it's easier to continue living the life you are living and live in denial rather than make any significant change.

Personally I think being a YouTuber is making her depressed. She clearly doesn't enjoy it anymore, and has a hard time dealing with the inevitable internet criticism, but changing careers means a big financial risk. So she'd rather stick with the status quo and complain to everyone about it.
I have to agree with this. I mean, no one can say what is making her unhappy aside from her. However, everytime I watch one of her videos or ESPECIALLY a livestream, she can't even hide the unhappiness/apathy. The way she comes across makes it seem as if she actually hates making videos and only does livestreams because she feels like she has to. Damn those livestreams are painful honestly. I hope she gets the help she needs.

Every time she talks about her mental health she brings up the fact that she's an internet personality and gets a lot of criticism which is really hard to deal with, so yeah I wouldn't be surprised if that's a big part of her depression. I don't doubt that she has more problems than negative self image but I just wonder at which point she might say that her youtube and instagram career is doing more harm than good.

What was up with her live stream earlier. She was on for maybe 5 minutes or so and abruptly ended it after Matt said they weren’t going out. She seemed peeved because she was going to get ready live but tried to play it off like she was joking. Then the stream ended. Lol.

It’s funny in relation to the conversation up thread about Sam’s intelligence (or how intelligent she perceives herself to be), it was brought up on the podcast that Sam *always* gets complemented for being so beautiful, and successful, and talented but she really wants people to recognize how intelligent and witty she is :roll: :rofl:

Jeez Sam, maybe you aren't recognized for it because you aren't really that intelligent and witty. :roll:

It absolutely grinds my gears when she calls herself "educated". She has a high school diploma, a 9 month makeup diploma, and a single online course on plant based diets.

That's not educated.

So in today's video she said she doesn't read comments after the first 20 minutes. If I were a diehard fan of hers who always commented, even if hours late, i'd feel so backhanded. Nothing peeves me more than influencers who ignore their comment section either completely or after a certain time and then complain about lack of engagement.

She's pretty much telling her audience there is no point to commenting after the first 20 minutes.

I guess I get it from her perspective. The people who watch a video right away are probably stans who will only hype her up, so she only sees the positive/supportive comments and nothing remotely critical.

I truly think she has a love of makeup but only does YouTube for the money. She could give a shit about anything outside of $. I'm of the opinion that she's incredibly lazy and only cares to do what she wants to do. If she wasn't conventionally pretty by today's standards her IDGAF and fuck the man attitude wouldn't be as appealing to her fans. She'd get called out way more for not caring about them. A lot of YouTubers hire out someone to patrol their comment section and delete anything terribly negative, reply the generic thank yous, flag comments that need more attention from the actual creator and even click the thumbs up button on comments. Sam truly doesn't care unless it benefits her in some way.
