Like every other Janoskianator, I come with a story. And this is my story..
My best friend was called Beth. She was amazing, I love her. She was unbelievably beautiful and just amazing.
Me and Beth were both like every other girl, obsessed with youtubers and twitter. In around June 2011, me and Beth were on youtube and came across a group of youtubers, called the Janoskians. (Just Another Name Of Silly Kids In Another Nation Skip).
We watched their video, 'Ellen's Dance Dare' and absolutely loved it, so we checked out their channels and the rest of their videos and immeadeately fell in love with them.
Me and Beth would talk non-stop about the boys, repeat some of their little sayings and watch their videos and would always try and get them to notice us on twitter. We loved these boys so much.
On the 27th of December 2011, just two days after Christmas, me and Beth were skyping and talking about the Janoskians. Suddenly Beth burst into tears, I had no idea what was going on. She told me that she had been diagnosed with cancer, but didn't tell me because she didn't want me to worry. That's how amazing she was, she put myself before her.
But as I was saying, Beth had been diagnosed with cancer, and the worst part was that the doctors had found it too late, and there was no way they could cure it. The 27th of December was going to be her last day alive. I burst into tears aswell, but she told me not to worry, I'd be fine. It was late at night and Beth had to go, just as she was about to end skype, she said that I was never to give up on getting the Janoskians to notice me, she said that they helped her through such hard times, and that she loved those boys, she also said that if I was ever lucky enough to meet them, then I was to hug them tight and thank them for everything. Sadly, I've not met them yet, but they live half way across the world from me. Beth ended skype, and I cried myself to sleep.
Early the next morning, I was on facebook and Beth was online, I was so happy, I thought she had really gone, so I messaged her, 'BETH!<3' and I got a reply straight away, but it wasn't what I expected. It said, 'I'm sorry, I'm Beth's friend, sadly Beth passed away during her sleep last night, I was just coming on to deactivate her facebook.'
For the next month or so I was so depressed. I didn't want to get out of bed, or go out, or even do anything social. I was heartbroken and depressed and at breaking point.
I remember one day, I was just lieng in bed staring at the photo of me and Beth that sat on my bed side table. It was a picture of us with a mouthful of marshmallows, we were doing the chubby bunny challenge, and we had our Janoskian hoodies on. Then I remember what she had said, the Janoskians had helped her through hard times. And right at that moment I was going through a hard time, I lost my best friend.
I opened my laptop and watched a Janoskian video, and I laughed and smiled for the first time in ages. Everyday since then, I've watched their videos, smiled with them, cried with them, laughed with them, I'm so proud of how far they've come, and if Beth was here, she'd be proud too.
So that was my story.. I got emotional while writing it. I love the Janoskians more than the world itself. They've made me laugh, cry and smile. I feel like I've been on their journey, every time they hurt or cry, I hurt and cry with them. Every time they laugh and smile, I laugh and smile with them. Everytime they shine, I'll shine for them.
I'm so proud of them, I love these boys. They've saved me at my lowest points, and kept me going at my highest points. So basically, it annoys me when people say that the Janoskians are just youtubers that make girls laugh, because to me, they're much more than that.. they are honestly my life.
And to think that that group of hopeless kids taking on the streets of Melbourne have came so far, and I've went with them, in my heart.
That's why I can never lose the Janoskians, because if I lost them, not only would I lose my first loves, but I would also lose my world, and most importantly I'd lose that last piece of Beth, the only piece of Beth I have left.
I'm proud of you boys, never change.
If you could please help me and try and get @BrooksBeau @Luke_Brooks @JaiBrooks1 @James_Yammouni @danielsahyounie to read this, it would mean a lot.
They need to know how amazing they are, and how proud we all are of them. Thank you.
