Why "It Gets Worse" Is Worth The Read

5 Reasons To Read Shane Dawson's Latest Book
Victoria Piti

This week I've been invested in Shane Dawson’s newest book “It Gets Worse” and it has been a wonderful experience. I've been watching Shane on Youtube for 11 years now and now holding his second book is so surreal for me. I am proud of him and these are just a few reasons to read this New York Times Best-Seller

1.)it's hilarious

Calling anything Shane does hilarious is an understatement. He's hysterical. He can make any sad moment or embarrassing story funny. In his book it's all stories from his life and a lot of them could be sad, but he always puts a funny spin using real life dialogue. Anyone who doesn't even know Shane and his comedy will find him funny. He's hilarious and I actually laugh out loud with every page.

2.) It's genuine

Shane is a real guy who isn't afraid to say his truths. He has battled body dysmorphia and struggled with coming to terms with his sexuality, both which he has openly discussed in both his books. He isn't afraid to be open with his struggles and his feelings, which he’ll often try to put a comedic spin on. He keeps it positive but keeps it real at the same time.

3.)It's a little heartbreaking

Shane's life growing up was not easy as his family didn't have much money and his father left their family when he was young. One chapter is detailing how his mother was convinced that they were going to win the lottery but was heartbroken when they lost. There's heartbreaking moments but they lead way to such great moments in Shane's life. The tears become happy tears when you realize how far he's come as a person.

4.)It appeals to everyone

If you don't know who Shane Dawson is, you don't need to to find this book hilarious and relatable. He is open and honest, which everyone can admire about someone. He knows the right words of advice to give to everyone that anyone can take. I just recommended the book to someone who has no idea who Shane is because it's just so funny. Comedy is a language everyone can understand especially when spoken by someone who made it their job to make someone else laugh.

5.)Puts life into perspective

Shane's book is called “it gets worse” but while he admits it can get bad at times, things will always get better. He's been through so many bad times but they've always made him stronger as a person. He negative events in his life and makes them into a positive, into comedy. He always proves that you can get up after you've fallen down and make a great life for yourself. It may be bad right now but it'll always get better, that's the one lesson Shane always teaches in books and his videos.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
