Favourite tweets of my own twitter account

So, long story short, I will be deleting my Twitter account in the near future. I still love the app and adore the comedians that bust out the best one liners within the platform. But I need a break from the political side of it all. Trump is the worst thing that has ever happened to Twitter and frankly, I think someone should shut it down like they did to Vine.

Allow me to be a bit self-absorbed while I make this list of my favourite (and still important today) tweets that I’ve posted in the last 7 years of my account. I want to document them in one place, so I can show my kids what my random thoughts were like. I am not going to explain any of these tweets. So, enjoy the ambiguity. Sorry in advance.

Just joined twitter!! FINALLY!

If I could wear sweatpants and a hoodie everyday, I would… #socomfy


There’s never a dull moment with dance. 🙂 Kinda like it.


Sometimes I just need some time away from everything.


@tessa_clarke: Trinity: you know what they say, you don’t know.” that’s like her catch phrase 😉

6:08 PM – 1 May 2012

These past few days have been so special. So many memories and they will not be forgotten. Love you all. God bless.


It’s difficult for me to say goodbye to something when saying hello is like a second nature.


Ugh. School is so pointless anyways…


Andrew Garfield just quickly became my obsession after that movie. #spidey


Spending National Dance Day at my cabin that doesn’t have electricity. #whoopee -.-


Inspiration can come from anywhere or anyone at any time at any place in your life.


I think too much. Especially at night.


Those car trips where you listen to almost your whole music library. 🙂


CHANNING TATUM ISSS SOOO HOT HE’S MAKING ME MELT


Those people that you could listen to them talk all day. #inspiration #reflecting


I imagine what my body would sound like.


Happy birthday to most astonishing singer I know. @ingridmusic , your music has made me realize there’s no other way to live than to love.


Christmas is the happiest and saddest day of the year.


Sometimes I hate sleep. Sometimes I think it just shouldn’t be a necessity. Then, there would be time to do the things we want. Anyone else?


@CoryMonteith: Gleeks of my Homeland: Don’t miss the return of #Glee – Jan 24 at 9pm ET/PT on @Global_TV” wouldn’t miss it for the world!!

Grandma, this weekend is for you.


did anyone feel that? Did ANYONE feel that?! DID ANYONE FEEL THAT? -my class right now


No more cue cards. No more cramming. No more papers with useless words on them. I have finished my 9th year of school. 🙂


I desire not to stray… But I must.


Think it’s about time to bring out the heroes for my dizzied-mind called the EARPHONES. #givethemaroundofapplause #theysavemefromeverything

Favourite thing about today? Being in a room with not just dancers but ARTISTS. I’m so grateful that dance can bring us all together. #jump


Thank you @MMRAW for your class today!! It’s so much fun to dance with you. 🙂

I listened to 7 Things this morning and it made the start to my day much better. Miley never disappoints.


I’ve got issues but don’t need some tissues thank you very much


You know you can never judge someone’s dancing on just a photo. You have to be present in their movement to realize grasp what you’re seeing


So down to lie down


I really want to bring back skorts.


Trying to hide from our problems is like playing hide and seek in a small room


Special moment: looking into someone’s eyes and they’re looking too and even if it’s for just two seconds, you know they care about you.


Being a teenager in the 80’s probably would have been much better. 🙂


My right hip flexor needs to STOP painfully stabbing me every time I bring my leg above 5 degrees… #firstweekback

There is not a single Ingrid Michaelson song that I wouldn’t dance to. Period

It’s so funny how we can flashback in our flashbacks


You caught me when I was winking


I’m sad to say the only thing I will miss about being 15 is that I need a new theme song. T-swift’s song has expired.


I wish that as soon as you see a cute boy, they are like shielded from other people so that it’s all for you.


Whoever put in the time to write those hearts on everyone’s lockers, bless you. You are making a lot of Tigers happy today!


Come back when you can


So. This is. Amazing.


The fact that Mme Roch told me today that she used to be able to do the splits made my day so much better.


Everytime Heart’s A Mess comes on, I just freaking lose it and have to scream “DESPERATE TO CONNEECTTT”


Toronto, why do I get depressed every time I have to leave you? I swear I will live in you one day.


And a Britney song was on. And a Britney song was on. And a Britney song WAS ON.

I will never comprehend the power of dance. But I will always ALWAYS be fulfilled by it. #DGB #DIFD Thank u to all the dancers & teachers.


So this week was definitely one to remember. DGB, fun rehearsals, shaping sound, improv tonight & my birthday tomorrow. Cant ask for better.


You go Beck. Good fo you.

Listening to the anthem and missing our lip-sync sessions in Bartlett’s…. #RIPSem1 @_Adrianna_1221


Still can’t get over the smile he gave me this morning. Chills…

6:57 AM – 2 Mar 2015

I am not lying to you when I say that I will NOT GET THROUGH THIS WEEK UNLESS THERE IS A SNOW DAY OR MY SCHOOL BURNS DOWN. #stressedbrianna



So much post-comp depression. So much.


First summer with my license and I’m stoked to have the open road, Windows down and the sun shining


watching ballet videos is my favourite pass time


I apologize for the mess I am about to appear as today. #themorningaftercomp


Will never forget these people


Highlight of my weekend: Salsa duet with the Shimmy King (aka: @mattdippolito )


No but seriously, how are Broadway musicals so incredible??!?


Perfect afternoon with trin: tea party and backyard gymnastics


I would be lying if I said I didn’t notice the changes in our lives day by day. I’m constantly aware of the shifts.


When I dream of my future, I see me dancing in a show 8 times a week. That’s where I want to be, that’s where I’ll get.


When ever @SaraBareilles comes on during shuffle, I get some kind of surreal emotion. She just gets music.


And now @ingridmusic ‘s Turn to Stone just decided to come up right after Sara and my life has just been explained to me. Gahhhhhhhhhh


The lyrics “Four cities, two planes, the same day” actually relate to me today. EWR->OKC

You can really find out a lot about a person by the style and colour of their dance journal.


Ryan Foley told me today to just go for my dance dream. Well alright. I guess I will.

I love @stephrutherford . That is what I feel.


I wish people didn’t have opinions on each other because we are constantly transforming into better versions of ourselves.


Arabesque en plié is the stuff I live for


Sometimes you’re up. Sometimes you’re flat on the floor trying to get your middle splits better.

I’m making decisions that will affect my entire life. That’s not scary at all. No. I’m fine. Totally fine.


I’m surprised I haven’t cried at school yet this year. #stressedbriannaequalscryingbrianna


When you theatre jazz all day and you realize this is the life you want to live 24/7.        Ya.


Me: “Are we doing Stoich this year?” Ruddy: “a very limited amount…” Me: “Limited… Not excess?”


“Make it matter.” –@MMRAW today in class. She is truly one of my inspirations for breaking past standards & being you. Thank you!!!!


I desire a life that is a constant pas de deux, with lullabies of the piano on repeat.


Death by chemistry

THANK THE LORD for YouTube. Without it, I wouldn’t be able to watch Gene Kelly’s old dance videos so easily. He was and is legendary.


“You’ll always be ready but you can never be ruddy.” –@FameronCox #chemislife


Dance always takes priority. I guess you could say it’s a carboxylic acid. #chemislife (@seanmillr thought of this)


If there’s one thing @justinbieber has shown me, it’s that he understands the power of dance.


Well I did it. I applied to Juilliard.


I haven’t slept in 3 months, my mind is nonstop future planning, my room is a mess. So my health isn’t a #1 priority anymore? Great, thanks.


I actually corrected Mr. Ruddy today. Put it on my resume. #chemislife


the first thing I will do on Xmas break is read a book. that is not for an essay. not for a project. but for me. for my health & well-being.


Feeling very grateful for my guy friends recently

The most embarrassing thing is getting called out by RYAN FREAKING FOLEY for not having a toe tap on your tap shoe during tap line.


I’m not emotional. I just think sometimes about how he doesn’t love me and how I feel empty without him. And I get sad. No big deal.


Still laughing about the fact that I had a dance off with miss folkes on friday. and she almost beat me.


In need of a really deep hug. Like the one where you can feel the sadness oozing out of you while someone who cares about you holds you. Ya.


Shoutout to @McC_Liam for being a real MVP today


Tonight I figured out something v crucial in my life: ……………………………………I love to be in the middle of dance circles.


Thought: open up the new day like your fav restaurant just got a whole new menu. Yes, it’s complicated and problematic. But you still go.


It’s saddening to look back on the last two years and realize that you would have been much happier if you hadn’t met a certain person.

4:26 am: I should get a tattoo on my inner thighs of circular arrows to direct my turnout muscles outwards


These are my sons and the last one is my dad


Would never wish upon my greatest enemy for them to wake up crying. It is a miserable way to start ur day & should never happen to anyone.


My dad just won best dance dad. He texted me this: “enjoy a week of musicality.” Eat your heart out Prop Dads !!


Even though T-Swift’s Red album may basically be one big cliché, I find myself going back to it in times of need.


I’m just really in love with Miley Cyrus.


My current state of sickness: I sneeze too hard and my shoulder starts to spasms and doesn’t stop until the short second of unconsciousness when I sneeze again.


Guilty pleasures: Other people have the Kardashians, shopping sprees, etc… I have youtubers and ex-viners.


Trying to remind myself that not EVERY year has to be a good year. It’s about the journey and the amount of love that is shared. This year coming up could be the worst one yet… but if I’m going into it with love, I’m doing okay. Happy New Year!!


“I had all and then most of you, some, and now none of you.” GORGEOUS LYRIC @LordHuron


Hi! Yes, my name is Brianna Clarke and I would like to audition. No… I didn’t have time to recover from my last audition or put on proper clothing but I’d still like to be seen for the part. My demi-pointe currently looks like this: is that suitable for your company?


Also in honour of @joshgroban and @SaraBareilles hosting the tonys remember when the uncharted music video was the biggest musical collaboration of our generation?! STILL SO GOOD


Contemplating if watching @TheTonyAwards by myself is a good idea but then again, I will be having multiple panic attacks every time I see Andrew Rannells on screen

My Top Ten Internet Characters

I like the kind of Internet when iconic characters can be created and shared with a community of watchers. I wanted to assemble a substantial list of actors that make an incredible effort to perform, even if it’s just on their phone camera.

No one has done this yet! I checked… So, in the style of WatchMojo.com, I complied the best internet characters that I love to watch on YouTube, Vine, and Instagram. This will be based on comedic ability, originality, and recurrence in videos (the character must appear more than once). Please note, I will not be including vloggers or other personalities that more or less resemble the real-life version of that person. These are characters that were made up by the content creator, and are used for purposes of entertainment, rather than influence. Also, these characters must have been originally created for the internet, not television, film or live theatre.

10. Forest Nymph (aka Guy Who Can’t Find His Berries)

This character has only made a few appearances on Vine, but he is not to be forgotten. The mystery of where his berries might be has us on our toes, and I can’t seem to un-watch the way he licks an orange in this vine compliation.

9. Moq (aka Julien Solomita)

If there was an award for someone who never breaks character, Julien would win in a mothaf**king landslide. Moq is always appropriately dressed for stealing the scene, and honestly I don’t seem to watch the incredible Jenna Marbles when Moq is in her videos.

8. Petunia and Giggles (Happy Tree Friends)

These cute friends have been in my life since I came across Youtube, and they have stalked my nightmares ever since. The lemonade stand skit that featured these two always has me cringing on new levels. WARNING: IT IS NOT FOR SQUEAMISH VIEWERS.

7. Gayle (aka Chris Fleming)

When I watched his most popular video “Company is Coming”, my laughter overtook my ability to stand up. I had no control. The relatable, dramatic and clever performance Fleming gives as Gayle gave me the courage to work on physical acting in my own creative process.

6. Fake Marzia (aka Pewdiepie’s editor Brad)

This one is just brilliant. If you watch Pewdiepie on a regular basis, his editors have become some what of a meme unto themselves. Moreover, when you see a guy wearing ponytails and he manages to have multiple nip-slips, you’ll wish you were dating Marzia too.

5. Carmelita (aka Jason Nash)

Another gender-bending character, Carmelita takes prostitution seriously and I couldn’t be more on board. Jason’s improv skills and commitment to embarrassing himself in the streets of Hollywood are fantastic in David Dobrik’s videos. I mean, we gotta give it to him for walking in those heels.

4. Biscuit Ballerina (aka Shelby Williams)

As a wannabe ballerina myself, this character hits so close to home. As she sickles her way through Instagram videos, I can’t help but feel her pain. And yet she performs with such grace and poise, who really cares that her alignment is totally out of wack? I just hope my ballet teachers don’t think I look like her…

And now for my Top 3!

3. Fred (aka Lucas Cruikshank)

The original Youtube icon. The teenager that sounded worse than Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. The lover of all things Judy. If you didn’t hear about this guy in 2008 you lived under a sad, dark rock. Even though the actor and creator, Lucas Cruikshank, has moved on to other types of videos, I have a soft place in my heart for Fred and his weird screams in kiddy pools. And looking back, he dealt with a lot of serious issues like a complex family life, sexuality and dental hygiene. The screaming may actually be a metaphor for how confusing male adolescence can be. Here’s a quote to get nostalgia flowing through your brain: “My mom got mad at me yesterday because I ate all of the dirt out of the vacuum cleaner.”

2. Miranda Sings (aka Colleen Ballinger)

The only still-active character to make my Top 3, Miranda’s essence has so many levels that describing her as one thing would be insulting. She would call me the rudest sinner to ever walk the world. With her iconic singing style and outlandish self-confidence, Miss Sings takes the Youtube community by its “chesticles” and demands their attention. It’s actually impossible to miss her due to her overdrawn lips and sloppy posture. I am so awed by her personality that dressed as her for Halloween once and paraded around my old high school. I felt invincible. Most notably, Miranda has an impressive list of “baes” that treat her with the utmost loyalty. As of the release of this post, her boyfriends are: Joey Graceffa, Ricky Dillon, Tyler Oakley, Shane Dawson, Joe Thatcher, Flula Borg, Connor Franta, and Alfie Deyes. Wow. The fact that she is able to balance all those men is astonishing. My absolute favourite video of hers is when she reacts to Ariana Grandé’s “Focus” music video. It rips me to shreds of laughter as she comments on the acclaimed singer’s technique and dance moves. Well done Colleen! Please don’t go away anytime soon.

Honourable Mentions: Tiny Mouth (Mamrie Hart), Charlie the Unicorn (Jason Steele), Shananay (Shane Dawson), Storytime Narrator (Thomas Saunders)

1. Filthy Frank (aka George Miller)

WARNING: FILTHINESS IS AT A MAXIMUM HERE. This is without a doubt the number one character on my list. It was so easy to put this a**hole at the top because Filthy Frank’s behaviour is an extremity within itself. The development of this character continues past just being an aggressive, crude, judgemental prick: All of his videos are connected into one timeline (see reddit thread explaining the theory here). He, the master behind Frank’s blunt attitude, built an empire with his channel and even though it was active for 9 years, his legacy lives on to this day. Original creator of the Harlem Shake, Filthy Frank was never afraid to speak his mind and comment on pop culture. He even used green-screen graphics so that fans could superimpose his “It’s Time to Stop” skit for memes. Although he now goes by the stage name Joji, I will always look up to his bravery to be who he wanted to be. Sometimes, the world needs to hear the truth, however offensive it may be.
