“You’ve Changed” Foul-Weather Friend Alert!

This is fresh on my mind right now, because I just watched a Youtuber I adore go on an uncharacteristic rant about the comments that really hurt her the most.  Whether you know Bunny Meyer (a.k.a. grav3yardgirl) or not, I’m sure you can still appreciate a vlogger who tries to create a happy distraction and…
