4 YouTube Channels That Every Student Needs To Know

Learning can be a tough thing to do if the subject is boring. Boring subjects can be hard to absorb and might even cause an impromptu nap. However, there are some wonderful people in the world that try to make the dullest of subjects lively and interesting.

These are just a few of the YouTube channels that every student needs to know. Note, while these channels are good at what they do they are no substitute for actually do the work, use them more for the broad strokes and do the finer details yourself.

1. Crash Course 

I'd be amazed if there was a student that hasn't heard of Crash Course. Easily the most famous channel on this list, John and Hank Green have been helping to relieve student's boredom since 2012. They cover an astonishing range of topics from world history to biology, from statistics to theater. They are very good at what they do and have even been used by teachers as supplements to their lessons.

2. Overly Sarcastic Productions

Red and Blue have been over sarcastically summarizing stuff since 2013. They each have their own specialty; Red normally does literary analysis and summarizes various myths and Blue summarizes history. Keep in mind they summarize the material they work with. If you need a quick dive into what your studying they are great but don't try to use them to write a term paper.

3. Wisecrack

Wisecrack may use less academic works in their videos but they are still pretty good. They do videos about the philosophy of pop culture, cliff notes on popular books, and even extrapolate meaning from popular films. They tend to steer more towards the pop culture side but can still be helpful in some cases.

4. Extra Credits 

While the channel might be focused towards game design, it has benefits to even the average student. The Extra History series tackles important topics like WWI and The Articles of Confederation. Their Extra Sci-Fi series takes a look at the literature that inspires and makes up the genre.

They also have a secondary channel called PlayFrame that has an Animation Of... series where they take a look at animation principals. Every episode of every show is either written by someone in the industry now or has been reviewed by someone in the industry.

These channels might not be the peer-reviewed journals that you're looking for when doing your homework, they can help you get a grasp on your subject. I hope you enjoy them, whether you watch them for entertainment or to learn something new.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
