  • You know, I've realized something.

  • If I keep making videos about my life stories, then soon I'll run out of life to talk about.

  • Which is why sometimes I'll agree to do a thing just so I can make a video about it later.

  • Perks of being a YouTuber.

  • So my Mom is friends with this junior high school teacher...

  • Kudos to any junior high school teachers watching.

  • It amazes me that anyone would be okay sitting in a room with twenty 7th graders

  • and not even getting paid that much to do it.

  • My mom was talking to her, like moms do, and I guess I came up in conversation.

  • And my mom told her that I wanted to be a math teacher...

  • But then I became a YouTuber instead.

  • So my Mom's friend, I'll just make up a fake name for her...

  • I'll just call her "Mom's Friend".

  • Mom's Friend comes up to me and says "Hey would you be interested in helping tutor some 7th and 8th graders?"

  • Ew!

  • I think the only reason she chose me was because

  • One, I'm good at math. (duh)

  • And two, I'd be good with kids... or something.

  • I told her I'd do it because 7th and 8th graders are the worst kinds of people.

  • Un-Unless you watch my videos, then you're cool.

  • I'll finally get to live my half-hearted dream of teaching kids math.

  • Now I didn't make this video to talk about math okay? That's boring.

  • Before I even started tutoring these kids, Mom's Friend asked if I wanted to chaperone on a field trip

  • so I can "get to know them."

  • Okay, 7th and 8th graders are between the ages eleven and thirteen.

  • AKA: The worst time to be alive as a human.

  • You're going through puberty. You're super self-conscious. No one wants to be your friend. :(

  • 7th grade is just one big popularity contest

  • And everyone's losing.

  • No one looks back at themselves when they were in 7th grade and thinks, "Yeah, I was alright."

  • There's definitely some sevies watching right now thinking, "Oh, I'm not that bad!"

  • Doesn't matter who you are!

  • You're gonna look back on these years and hate yourself.

  • I remember when I was in the 7th grade, I noticed all the cool kids wore really low socks.

  • The shorter the sock, the cooler you were.

  • So I always wore the LOWEST sock possible. Most of the time you couldn't even see the socks!

  • It looked like I was wearing nothing. That's how cool I was.

  • Sometimes I put on girl's socks because they were the lowest socks I could find.

  • I was sssssssoooooooooooo coool.

  • Anyway, I was going to be chaperoning these kids on a field trip.

  • They were going to the big college here in Arizona.

  • Can I just say ASU?

  • And this was suppose to get them excited to learn and pursue a higher education.

  • Kinda awkward bringing me along, the successful college drop out.

  • "Hey kids you should go to college. It's important."

  • "I-I don't count though."

  • And I didn't know what to expect on this field trip.

  • YouTube says my biggest demographic is 18 to 24 year-olds. But I don't think that's true.

  • Because it's usually kids leaving comments and emailing me asking to collab.

  • Either they're the loud minority, or there's a bunch of kids lying about their age on YouTube.

  • I walk into the classroom and everyone's head turns.

  • "Is that theodd1sout??" "Oh my goodness, that's theodd1sout!"

  • Kids started forming lines! They were taking pictures. They were hugging me-

  • And I'm just kidding. That didn't happen.

  • No one cared.

  • They were all still talking in their cliques.

  • With all the kids I've talked to over the internet...

  • That sounded wrong.

  • With all the kids I've talked to, I was hoping that one, at least one, kid had seen my stuff.

  • But nope.

  • So I just sat in silence and played on my phone.

  • We get on the bus–I don't remember where I said this, but on school buses all the cool kids sit on the back.

  • Well this time the opposite was true, because I sat in the front.

  • We arrive at the college, I go to this group of kiddos, and I say, "So what do you want to be when you grow up?"

  • And at that moment, I realized I sounded exactly like one of those adults who try to talk to kids

  • but have no idea what to say.

  • I was planning on them saying, "Astronaut!" or "Doctor!"

  • And then I was going to say "Well, you could learn that IN COLLEGE!"

  • That's what I was going to say.

  • "So what do you want to be when you grow up?" They said...

  • Nothing. They didn't say anything.

  • They just looked at me like, "Why is this old guy tryin' to talk to us?"

  • So then I just walked away.

  • Alright. I need a new question.

  • I wanted to some how bring up, "Hey, I have over a million subs on YouTube."

  • But that's tacky. You don't just start conversations like that. Sub counts have to come out naturally.

  • So I went up to a new group of kids and I said, "So, do you guys watch any YouTube videos?"

  • And most of the kids did the same thing, looking at me like I was weird.

  • But one kid said, "RiceGum."

  • "Ugh, ew!"

  • Here's actually the story of how I met RiceGum.

  • So I was at VidCon, and all of a sudden a huge crowd of people just goes running by.

  • And I said, "Who's that?"

  • And someone else said, "RiceGum."

  • And then I said, "Oh... "

  • "Wh-Whooo's that?"

  • And I didn't really meet him.

  • My friend Gabe did, though.

  • *bark*

  • So we were given a tour of this college and it was actually kind of interesting,

  • because it was the college that I WOULD'VE attended if I wasn't trying to save money.

  • It was fun seeing what could've been.

  • There were other junior highs doing tours at the same time.

  • So we crossed paths with this preparatory school. (excuse that black frame, James accidentally pasted something for the end of the video)

  • I'm guessing it was a preparatory school because they were wearing uniforms.

  • And this one kid in the other group just pointed to me saying, "Theodd1sout! Theodd1sout!"

  • Over and over, and I just said, "Heyyy" back to him.

  • And that was it, we just kept walking. No pictures or high fives.

  • Man, why couldn't have THAT kid been in my group?!

  • Preparatory kids are so much cooler.

  • So we do the tour and I was in the back not talking to anyone.

  • We ate lunch and there was actually a kid in my group who DID know me.

  • His name was Conner. I think he was too shy to talk to me at first.

  • Thanks Conner! Where were you when I asked your peers what they wanted to be when they grew up?!

  • But he was cool, we ate lunch together.

  • The field trip was almost over and I kept thinking

  • "Man, I did NOT connect with these kids, like, at all."

  • "Well they are only seventh and eight graders, so it's not like I need their approval."

  • "HEY KIDS! I have 1.8 million subs on YouTube!"

  • It was tacky to use my sub count to get validated by these children.

  • But after I said that, everyone loved me.

  • I think made a good connection with them.

  • And okay, all the kids I tutored that were failing math...

  • 90% of the time they weren't failing because they didn't understand the material.

  • They were failing because they were missing assignments.

  • So, alright, I'm about to tutor everyone watching this video!

  • And this goes for you college folks too.

  • Kids...

  • Turn in your work. Even if it's late, it's better than a zero.

  • Alright, lesson's over. We're not going to do end card for this video because...

  • I wanted to show you guys something.

  • Here are all the cards I made for the plushies.

  • Good news if you live in the States because they will most likely arrive before Christmas.

  • Sorry if you live... somewhere else.

  • Also, if you ordered a custom signature, you're just gonna get one of these boys.

  • We want to get them out before Christmas. But then we're going to send the special ones later, so...

  • You'll get two cards if you- if you, uh, ordered special instructions.

  • *indiscernable baby talk*

  • Papi what do you have to say?

  • *Papi snarling*

  • Also another important announcement is I'm going to be taking a Christmas break.

  • I have been working non-stop on videos since VidCon. So I am in desperate need of a break.

  • I'm still going to be posting comics and maybe some other non-animated video if I can.

  • But this is the only animated video this month so I guess, "Merry Christmas."

  • Can I say, "Merry Christmas"?

  • Whatever holiday you celebrate, just wear your seat belt.

  • Look at that. This is my–I haven't... I haven't hung it up or anything.

  • It's just, it's just on the floor.

You know, I've realized something.
