Draw My Life - Dolan Twins
what's up guys we're back in this Tuesday we decided we wanted to try to

draw

my

life

video we're gonna do this together because that's how it's been since day one well before day 1 we've been together since the womb and maybe even before that depending on a footer no or identical but that's still a mystery to us to this day anyway it all started out in a belly not just any belly our mom's belly 17 years ago on December 16th in New Jersey I was born then 19 minutes later it was Grayson's turn to come into this world this was a way more complicated process than anyone had anticipated because Grayson got stuck they had to perform emergency surgery on my mom in order to save Grayson's

life

which also put her

life

at risk during the procedure Grayson's heart flatlined and he technically died for almost a whole minute my parents told us that this was a scariest moment of their lives then a miracle happened Grayson's little heart decided to start beating again I don't know why I died I think God just needed an extra minute to make me cooler than Ethan and as annoying as Grayson is I'm very thankful that he's here and I don't know what had to do with that so yeah that put us at 20 minutes apart which is a lot for

twins

and we weighed in at 7 and 8 pounds which is also a lot for

twins

sorry mom as babies we were sitting in the hospital when we were finally free we came home and our two-year-old older sister named us...

Nigel and cookie because she thought we were dogs unfortunately I'm very allergic to dogs so we were the only dogs that she would ever have sorry Cameron we quickly learned how to walk and we were running into things and jumping off her high chairs at just 10 months old my mom actually had to put a tent around my crib because I used to climb out of my crib and free Grayson from his in the middle of the night then I figured out how to unzip the tent so my mom had a pipe cleaner lock the tent shut to stop me from breaking out sorry again mom it's need to say that we were born a little bit crazy we moved from our first house when we were three years old and started preschool in a new town we remember being able to make friends easily at school because were outgoing and social personalities however when we asked our friends from school they wanted to have playdates they told us that they weren't allowed to because their parents didn't like us or we were too crazy we remember telling her mom what her friend said and her getting very upset parenting tip don't talk she's doing 4 year olds they will find out and they will be upset one of the parents even threw a graduation party for our preschool class and made t-shirts for everyone well almost everyone we were the only ones who didn't get t-shirts or a party invitation and even though we were only four I actually remember feeling like I was never gonna fit in although this bothered us we didn't really...

need any other friends we always had each other at a young age our dad introduced us to sports this is where we were able to use our craziness to our advantage we played football lacrosse and we wrestled three contact sports we also watched a lot of TV too much TV to the point where we actually tried to create our own show and we called it Bob and Rob it was about two kids who battled over having the same name and her older sister filmed it on her flip video camera that she got for her eighth birthday she was also a young tech genius and would edit the episodes on her family's computer we created a total of two seasons and 30 episodes and we really only ever showed her family when they came over for holiday celebrations and stuff and no we will not be posting those videos anywhere unless we get I'm just kidding we're honestly not sure if we could even find those because they were on an old eMac that is probably in a dumpster somewhere so although we really enjoyed filming sports were always kind of our main focus we made some friends on our sports teams who were actually allowed to hang out with us when they came over we wouldn't play sports or anything we would actually dress them up and have them played characters in our shoes must have been fun to be our friends yeah then our family moved to a new town and Bob and Robin left behind in this new town we took sports very seriously we trained almost every day and we're the captains of a wrestling team...

played on travel lacrosse teams and won a championship in football at one point we try to make videos again on a youtube channel called you to move 39 I think it was a good cow mix for the unicorn anyway that failed miserably and I hope those videos never surface we didn't really have enough time to make videos with all the sports we were playing so we ditched that for three years until our sisters showed us an app called vine vine videos were only six seconds so we sure as hell had enough time for those why made us fall back in love with an old passion that we had creating videos in school a girl my seventh grade science class told me that her brother would watch my binds together and laugh at them I was confused when she told me this but those words made me feel better than winning any championship in any sport we spent that entire summer making stupid vines to make our friends laugh eventually we started receiving comments at her post for people that we didn't know this was another confusing but amazing feeling the following year we were forced to make a decision between sports or videos we applied to a private school who was known for their amazing sports programs and after meeting with the coaches and hearing what they had to say about us we thought that we were almost guaranteed acceptance then Greyson and I made a deal if we got into the school we would quit vine and focus on sports because we made vines or at least that's why we think we got rejected this...
was very upsetting because our future plans were crushed this honestly made me so upset that I quit making vines I was stuck doing them alone in my room for that month until they finally convinced Ethan to start making videos with me again we graduated middle school feeling like the man or men because we both almost had a million followers on vine this taught us that if you feel like

life

is knocking you down it's probably just knocking you back onto your path and then high school came around we were nervous enough to start the year as freshman and it didn't help that there was an anonymous app in town where people were saying that they wanted to ruin our years but beating us up in the hallways and filming it and just as we expected high school was miserable most days I couldn't go from class to class without hearing someone taught me from in the hallways I remember some seniors would stick stickers on my backpack that had mean comments written on them this turned us into insecure and introverted people and we had never been like that ever before I would spend every day walking in the hallways with my head down so no one would see me I even had a pencil case with a mirror in it to make sure there was nothing on my face for people to make fun of weird thought I know but that's the kind of person that hate turned me into when I finally got home from school I would be on my phone for the remainder of the day social media was my happy place the nice things that...
people had to say about us online made us forget about the negative things that went on in school and motivated us to keep making videos this taught us that surrounding yourself with the right people is very important for your happiness after continuously asking your parents if we get transfer to online school multiple sessions of counseling countless amount of anxiety attacks we left public school halfway through freshman year when that finally happened we had time for even more videos we started creating weekly YouTube videos which enable us to move to Los Angeles California to pursue our dreams we had our parents trust because we have always been honest with them they knew that we wouldn't spend her time partying and we knew that - we were there to work hard make videos and have a good time we never let anything distract us we've been sober our whole lives and are still sober to this day we don't believe that you need drugs or alcohol to have a good time anyway la was super fun for these first two years our dreams had become a reality two fifteen-year-old idiots living on their own in a big city it was scared to think that we had to do our own laundry and wash our own dishes but we got over that fear when we turned 16 we decided that replying to our comments and liking pictures wasn't enough we wanted to see the people who turned our dreams into a reality and well pretty much saved our lives we call this the 400 you tour our first show on tour was in our...
home state New Jersey we were extremely nervous until we got on stage for the first time this was another feeling that we fell in love with a couple people actually fainted during the show but luckily everyone is all giddy did we forgot how high power phantom was love you guys prior to touring we hadn't really traveled anywhere besides California during tour we traveled to 42 different cities worldwide we were highest on

life

right before we began our international leg of tour we were told some scary news our dad had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer this was definitely hard for our family we didn't want to cancel to work but we wanted to be home with her dad he told us we were crazy and to get back on the road because he knew that's what made us happy back in the road we were worried about our family worried about still putting videos out and had to do shows and catch flights almost every single night not going to lie we felt like we had a lot of pressure on us but like our dad knew the overwhelming support you all showed us on tour got us through that tough time so thank you for that our dad was actually able to come to our show in Ireland and visiting Ireland had always been a big dream of his we felt closer than ever with you guys after the six months that we were on tour and we also learned a couple great lessons be thankful for everything that you had especially your health and travel as much as possible when you see how big the world is you realize how...
small your problems really are after traveling the world we moved back to LA and they didn't feel the same this time we actually began to feel very we didn't have many friends we felt as if we weren't progressing his people we felt like we weren't doing enough for you guys after he showed us all that love and support to be honest the negative energy we felt in a lake convinced us to believe that a passion was a joke then we decided to revive another childhood dream of ours ever since we were little kids we always dreamt of having a house filled with things that would help us max out our craziness not even kidding we actually talked about this when we were little kids we felt that if we put our idea into motion we would be able to make the best videos that we were capable of making and more of them for you guys we then took a financial risk and created the

warehouse here we feel we can create videos that we were proud of and that could possibly brighten up someone's day we could also possibly fly one of you out here to hang out with us and make a video with us here this helped us learned that starting new chapters in

life

and taking risks is stressful leaving and inspiring for yourself also that buying materials doesn't bring you happiness sometimes we find ourselves feeling down no matter what to us happiness comes from creating videos bonding with you guys and being with our family we are still learning more and more about ourselves every...
day but that was our journey and what we have learned so far we are extremely thankful for all of you and hope that this showed you how much of an impact you've had on our lives you are a big part of our happiness daily we want to build this family of good people because good people make good people better people thank you for your help with giving us a
