21 Subreddits That You Didn't Know Existed
@reddit Instagram

We all have separate social media accounts for different things: Instagram is for pictures of friends and celebrities we wish we knew, Facebook is used to keep up with our friends' and family's lives (even if you're only Facebook friends because of that one strange mutual), Tumblr holds the secret fandom blogs that we all love, covered up in a feed full of humor. And sure, these apps get the job done; they're entertaining, they kill time - what's not to love? But there is one social media outlet that flies under the radar until you stumble upon it in the app store and think to yourself, I could use some more social media presence. There is one app that can do all of the above and so much more - if you know how to use it.

That app is Reddit.

You've probably heard of it, but didn't give it much thought or, if you did, forgot about it because of the somewhat complicated setup. Oh, making an account is easy, but getting started with content is the hard part simply because of the sheer amount of options you have. Of course, you'll be given the default subreddits, the ones that appear for everyone first. Sports, world news, pics, the general ones. But when you delve deep, you can find some pretty fun subreddits - or some not so fun ones, if that's something you're into. These are my personal top subreddits (spoiler: at least half of them are animal-related).

1. r/AnimalsBeingDerps

Giphy

It isn't just dogs that are weird either.

2. r/AskReddit

Giphy

There are all kinds of questions asked here, and a myriad of responses to spend hours reading.

3. r/BigCatGifs

Giphy

They're just really big cats, right? It won't hurt me to pet them?

4. r/ColorizedHistory

Giphy

It's incredibly cool how talented some people are, and it's easy to see in this subreddit.

5. r/EarthPorn

Giphy

Sometimes I forget how beautiful our home is, but this is a good reminder.

6. r/Eyebleach

Giphy

This is the place to go when you've seen or heard something really gross and you want to be distracted by cuteness.

7. r/gameofthrones

Giphy

I did say that access to fandom content is available too, right?

8. r/happycowgifs

Giphy

You'll never forget how cute cows can be again.

9. r/harrypotter

Giphy

Get your spoilers, complaints about J.K. Rowling, and awesome discussion posts here!

10. r/HumansBeingBros

Giphy

Faith in humanity restored (mostly).

11. r/nocontextpics

Giphy

No explanation for the picture. None.

12. r/NatureIsFuckingLit

Giphy

Pardon the language, but it is REALLY lit.

13. r/pettyrevenge

Giphy

Let's face it, we all love a good revenge story.

14. r/puppies

Giphy

The purest creatures on earth.

15. r/relationships

Giphy

Can be a good place to get relationship advice. Can also be a good place to read about other people's problems and wonder how that even happens.

16. r/TalesFromRetail

Giphy

They've seen it all.

17. r/tippytaps

Giphy

Seriously, we do not deserve these perfect beings.

18. r/unexpectedhogwarts

Giphy

I love seeing other nerds out in the wild.

19. r/Whatcouldgowrong

Giphy

A reminder that humans will always be inherently stupid.

20. r/worldnews

To get serious for a moment, it's always good to be informed about what's going on in other parts of the world, even if we think there is no relation to our own lives.

21. r/zoomies

Giphy

Mostly dogs, but a surprising number of other animals also enjoy a good zoomie every now and then.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

Reading is a relaxing activity that provides many benefits. Everybody reads books (when they are not watching Netflix, chatting on social media, or making Tik Tok videos) to distract themselves from reality for a while. Many do not realize the positive impact that books have like reducing stress, assisting with sleep, improving cognitively, and strengthening the mind. In honor of National Book Day, there are many great novels that you can read to mark this special holiday. Here are the best ones to check out.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).

Netflix

"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

When You Have A Disability, Finding A Job Is Twice As Hard, Believe Me, I Know

We have got to create a safer work environment for people with disabilities.

"My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn't prevent you from doing well, and don't regret the things it interferes with. Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically." – Stephen Hawking

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
