On this very sad day, I've come across some news that was very disheartening. Now I'm an avid youtube watcher. I have tons of subscriptions that are in all sorts of themes and genres and I also have a few daily vloggers that I like to keep up with. One of my favorites are Ali and Charles's Trippy CTFxC.
I've basically discovered this wonderful couple about a year ago and normally I wouldn't sit and watch through people's documentation of their daily lives but there was something charming about these two and they just kind of stuck with me. It may have been the editing and how things were back and forth between Ali's camera and Charles's camera. It was short, sweet, funny and sometimes sad and emotional. You get to watch their ups and downs, their struggles and their fun times and get to be part of their journey. I just loved it. It made you feel like you were part of their family.
However, today is a sad day for the CTFxC as Charles had just uploaded a video talking about how him and Ali were separating and he talks about how they've been constantly arguing for months and months and decided that separation may be the best solution. I honestly felt saddened by this as I love them both immensely and I also wonder how this will affect their channel. He stated that he'll be doing the videos and and Ali will do her videos and they just need time to work things out. It got me thinking though on how we somehow get attached to people through media. Why does it matter to me so much? Why do I feel saddened by this? gutted if you will. What was heartwarming though is all the support they have in the comments, wishing them good luck, wishing them happiness and telling them they were their for them.
They've made mention many times on how the comments and the tweets are truly overwhelming. I'd like to take this opportunity to send out my love to Charles and Ali and wish them luck with life. I believe that their decision may be a bit hasty but perhaps they know what's best for them.
