I've think I've mentioned this before but I don't believe she wants to get better, as being depressed and having anxiety are her only character traits at this point. We had similar upbringings- growing up gay in a homophobic, abusive, religious household and developing subsequent mental health problems because of it. I wanted to get better and move on, so I actively sought out resources to help me. She has been this way for years with no end in sight. Time to move on and find a new quirk outside of not showering for days

I think she is stuck in a comfortable place in her mental health where things are shitty, but not ~that~ shitty, and it’s easier and more comfortable to stay where you are rather than take risks or work hard to get better. I know the feeling. You end up plateauing in a way.

I know I keep complaining about the podcast lol but I just want to say, does she not know what a sponsorship means? She keeps saying how the podcast is sponsored by her shop, but she ain’t paying for airtime on the show lmao. She’s just taking advantage of her platform to peddle her trinkets and plagiarized watercolours. Also, does anyone notice how insufferable Chris is when he speaks? Every other word is “like”. “I’m, like, so excited for like, Animal Crossing to like, come out for like, the Nintendo Switch.” Not to mention he talks so slowly with so much vocal fry. Omg.

I agree that she treats depression/anxiety/trauma as personality traits. I think she thrives in being an eternal victim.

I know it's been like two years already, but is anyone else super irritated that she doesn't post on YouTube anymore? It's like she has no respect for where all of her followers/listeners came from. Especially since she deleted/privated all of the vids on her channel. And she just expects everyone who knew her from youtube to just move on over to her podcasts and buy her shitty art from etsy. Rude. (lol, out of spite, I don't listen to her podcasts)

Her youtube channel was like the only semi-consistent thing going for her at the time, so I thought it was super weird that she was like "I'm done with this". Even if she's not "inspired" to make vids anymore, I feel like it would've been a lot smarter for her to upload like once a month, just to keep her channel active. Also, wasn't the whole reason why she stopped youtube because she "got a job"?? What happened to that supposed job? Idk, I just thought it was a bad move on her part to stop youtube.

Also, I feel bad for Chris. He's like a hostage, and he can do way better. She's not even nice to him (from what I can remember from watching her vids like two years ago).

Yes, absolutely! It's her comfort zone. I've been through such period in my life, just stayed home doing nothing for months. And the longer you stay like that, the lazier you become and then it's almost impossible to force youself to get a job and socialize. It's hard but I got really mad at myself and finally got back on track.

Honestly, I think Chris may leave her one day. He is growing as a person, he is an adult now and it's hard to ignore the fact that the partner you live with hasn't changed at all, or the changes are negative.

Why did they buy a car? They had one a few years ago and all they did was complain about the financial burden of having a car and Seattle traffic. Seems weird to me.

She quit YouTube because it was mentally draining on her and was affecting her mental health in a negative way. I know that sounds pretty vague, but I think she uses that reason so that people can’t really shame her into starting it back up. She also said, when she starting doing the water color Wednesday Instagram posts, that when it started to become “not for fun” she was going to stop, because some things are allowed to just be hobbies.

I don’t have an issue with her being off of YouTube but i do find it annoying that her videos are privated. I think most of her followers would enjoying watching her old videos and she could easily disable the comments so that she doesn’t get constant notifications or emails alerting her that people are talking about the video.

I think they're bullshitting when they say the crash wasn't their fault.

I can’t believe they go into credit card debt just because Rachel won’t work. Like girl you could work minimum doing everything a couple times a week. Maybe an art store???.?.

They act like being in debt is normal.

Which it is for a LOT of Americans. But the a lot of people are just financially irresponsible or don’t know better.

They’re clearly living outside their means on one and maybe a half incomes.

Every trip they go in seems to be for Rachel

I agree!

There's "normal"/understandable debt like: student loan debt, medical debt, etc.

...And then there's #Crachel debt which is caused by pure entitlement: I want [insert thing here] and I deserve it, regardless of whether I can pay for it or not. Also good luck getting a car loan or a mortgage later on, because their credit score will be tanked.

In a recent podcast where they talked about the car crash, they mentioned that they had just paid off a bunch of their credit card debt right before the crash.

I was listening to an old episode from about a month ago and Rachel was talking about how she thinks she’d really benefit from a 9-5 job to help with her mental health and routine. Ugh, then go out and get a job! Also, I cannot believe she got a fucking Cricut machine. Those things excluding the supplies are expensive. Seems like she got the machine to cut out her stickers? She even said she’ll only be printing the stickers when there’s an order, and I highly doubt there’s a huge volume of them. So I just don’t get why she can’t freaking hand cut them, it doesn’t take THAT long.

I miss the good ole days of this girls content. Remember chris’s YouTube channel? I don’t think anyone cared enough about him to reupload those videos but man... I just recall his face being WHITE like Rachel had obviously done his makeup.

Also does anyone else remember her tumblr that was like a beauty guru spoof??

Yeah, she told that she tried to conceal his pimples :D but actually he had a shit ton of foundation on his face.

Everything is gone... her channel, her tumblr, her website. I rewatch her old videos and I realize when she made the wrong turn. Rachel of 2012-13 was entertaining and then freaking Seattle happened. Things changed forever, Rachel became lazy, anxious and just bland. And became "trendy" in terms of talking about mental illnesses and sexuality all the time.

lmao she's so bloody defensive about wiping her youtube channel it's insane. someone will mention it in passing and she comes out guns blazing about how yt was bad for her mental health etc etc. she's perfectly entitled to do or not do youtube but at least let people say they miss your videos like take the damn compliment. it bothers me that she didn't at least leave them there for people to watch but it's her decision at the end of the day i suppose.

Let's clear this up once and for all.....what is the absolute maximum Rachel can be making from her Etsy shop/art Patreon/the podcast? I can't believe Chris is just fine basically carrying 99% of the expenses.

And 99% of the work for that matter. I think my head almost spun around when I heard them say that Chris does all the editing for the podcasts, handles the ads/sponsorships/etc., and she made that comment while doing the ~ad~ for her own shop like "I can't believe chris won't let me reuse an ad from last week and is making me record this again," REALLY? Chris actually works a real job and also has to do all the work for their podcast??? Because she's too busy doing middle school skill level paintings?? And they literally just play the same audible ad every week, or others that are prerecorded and edited in....Is it really too much work to SAY A SENTENCE AND GET PAID FOR IT? I can't, y'all.

Bless your soul for still listening. What was on the complaint list this time.

I've noticed in her insta bio Rachel has "podcast host" but no longer links the pod.
