As an English Major, it sometimes kills me to not have anything to write about. I have succumbed to creating a video to express what is on my mind (or for some project) instead of actually WRITING.

Writing is therapeutic, it can be one of the most stress relieving activities anyone could do. Yes, it can be difficult, especially if it is not your strong suit.

However, once someone decides to write, they either find themselves stumped, or clueless on where to start.

This could be entertaining, could pass the time, and could very well help anyone who is in a funk.

Enjoy :)

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.

The Madness Behind YouTube - The Potential to Take Over Television

Sooner or later, I wouldn't be surprised if we seem YouTube content nominated in one way or another at the Emmys

25
views

The Emmy's last week saw Netflix become the most nominated network in 18 years passing HBO. This more than anything proves the power behind streaming services whether that may be Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Originals. However, what seems to be overlooked in this takeover is YouTube. Millions of hours of content is uploaded to YouTube every day.

YouTubers are paid thousands through brand deals, ads, and more. YouTubers that have lasted the test of time though or are constantly growing, seem to have a method to the madness versus just uploading a video and hoping for the best. Lasting and popular YouTube videos seem to go a few ways in terms of what makes them stand out. I started watching YouTubers around my freshman year of high school. Though it is not something I consistently keep up with anymore, there are some things I find interesting to watch.

One YouTuber, Shane Dawson, has been on the platform for over 10 years. In the past year he has converted his channel into making different "series", some up to 5 parts and as long as 30 minutes to an hour each. For him, this works. He has been on YouTube for a long time and has the right connections to meet and interview people that others wouldn't. He has gained a lot of attention doing this and viewers are always looking forward to his next series to come out. If other smaller YouTubers tried to gain popularity like this though, it is unlikely new viewers would sit around for an hour and watch just one piece of your content, nor is it likely that they would be interviewing someone widely popular.

Someone that I believe has realized this is David Dobrik. Every single one of his vlogs is 4 minutes and 21 seconds long. They are a quick piece of entertainment uploaded almost every day. If he were to make an entire series or hour-long vlog, people would probably still watch it, but what quickly grew his popularity is how the vlog has your full attention for that allotted time frame and nothing else. Some YouTubers will make vlogs between 15-30 minutes, but he makes it easy to watch and catch up on without feeling like you are wasting a ton of your time.

I have also noticed that a lot of "beauty and lifestyle gurus" seem to have fallen off the popular trend. People want a quick fix most the time, not sitting around and looking at the clothes you're showing in a haul for 20 minutes. Influencers like this have grown in popularity on Instagram. Through Instagram stories and apps like "Like It To Know" people can easily get the same information, and sometimes more than they got in a YouTube video.

In many videos that have gained traction and popularity on YouTube, some of them are series made up of a producer, director, writer, and more. Even though there is YouTube Red which has full-length shows, not many people consider the content that is on YouTube for free which anyone can view. Since it is free does it change what is believed to be television or a docu-series? Sooner or later, I wouldn't be surprised if we seem YouTube content nominated in one way or another at the Emmys.
