Tbh it’s been a rough week. I’m normally really good about regulating the highs and the lows, but it’s been overwhelming. And I guess I just wanna let you know that it happens, and that it’ll pass, and that you’re not alone. Of course, this is also me telling myself all those things cuz ya girl needs it rn. This throwback pic resonates with me — cuz we need reminders that life’s not about waiting out the storm, but barreling through it and finding, through the rain and the dark clouds, something to smile about. ❤️
Bucket list item #58: walk the runway at #NewYorkFashionWeek ✅ I still can’t believe this was a reality thanks to @Olay. I’ll never forget this moment. Thank you all for your loving support and kindness. Rock n roll, baby! 🤘
Who is one person you look up to? 👇 | mine’s @garyvee and he’s like a wisdom-spewing tennis ball machine that hits you right in the face with exactly what you need to hear 👊 He’s dope and it’s his birthday today! Thank you for imparting your knowledge each + every day, Gary!

A new video on my YT channel @AtomicMari is live (link in bio). It’s a love letter to you, the audience, and the entire Smosh family. ❤️ what an incredible ride it’s been! The last 8 years has been but a chapter in a very long book. The @Smosh story continues... so hold onto your butts!
Thanks to: @spennser for editing, @pamelahorton13 for letting me use her set-up, Mikey on tech, and @peterkitch for helping me proof-read and edit my script!
Repost @peterkitch | Just wanna shout out my hubby who’s been even more supportive than normal during this crazy week ❤️ I’ve got a video going up on my personal channel next week (super excited about it) so please make sure you’re subscribed! www.youtube.com/AtomicMari
To the best fandom in the world: thank you for being YOU ❤️ You guys create a truly unique community — one that fosters love, support, leadership, humor, weirdness (lol), and motivation. You all are NICE. Kindness goes a long way in life. Always keep that at your core. You’ve taught me so much by just showing love and you — YOU — should be SO PROUD. I feel incredibly privileged to be a part of the #SmoshFam. Thank you. I’m a forever #Smosher — this ain’t goodbye; just closing the curtain for the next act. So enjoy some snacks during intermission 🍫🍿 as the show will return shortly. I love you all so SO much ❤️ ...SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!
10 photos to represent my 8 years at @Smosh ❤️ This is an end of an era. Not because any of us want it to be, but because the company that owns Smosh is shutting down. I’m pissed. I’m devastated. I know we’ll be okay. I cherish every memory. From “the worst audition ever” to Smosh Pit Weekly to launching @SmoshGames, it’s been the best years of my life. And even though I know I didn’t take my home here for granted, it’s still heavy. We grew a family here — and it consists of far more people than those who appear on camera. I’m so proud of what we built. I love this family — so many whom aren’t pictured but hold a sincere place in my heart. I’m forever grateful for Smosh for changing the course of my life and giving me a chance to experience the best job in the world. I’m fortunate to have met so many of you, our audience, the lifeblood of our work. Without you, we wouldn’t have the genuine joy of sharing our lives, content, and wacky ideas. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Bear with us as we pick up the pieces and figure things out — we’ll continue on and, though it might look and feel different, I look forward to what we cook up next and rising like a MOTHER EFFING PHOENIX 🔥 with love and gratitude AND ROCK AND ROLL 🤘😈, M
Also to friends and colleagues in the industry: a lot of really great talented folks in production/post lost their jobs abruptly. If you have any leads, please DM me!
Go out there and do it. Few hours left. Exercising your right to vote is an incredible privilege — as a woman and a person of color, I’m truly grateful. How dope is it that the only thing stopping us from casting a vote is just getting yourself there. Go! Use your voice. Be heard. Be proud. 🤘🇺🇸❤️
