7 Classic YouTube Videos

Wow, I actually used to watch some of this stuff!

7 Classic YouTube Videos

Recently, I went on a deep dive into YouTube with two friends of mine looking for old videos we recalled from our childhood. While very strange looking back on them, they certainly still have a sentimental comedic flair to them despite the fact that some of them have not aged well.

1. How to Be Ninja

A true classic from the time, How to be Ninja highlights the simplicity of the old youtube community. Although it has not aged well in some respects (it does employ the use of a controversial slur), a great deal of the video still retains it's original comedic value.

2. Charlie the Unicorn

Looking back at this video, I was simply annoyed. But when it came out, you couldn't walk the halls of your school without hearing someone say "Candy mountain Charlie!"

3. Shoes

Looking back at this video, I can honestly look back at my younger self from 2007 and ask "what the hell." Shoes is a trip I wasn't ready to go back on.

4. Trolololo

The Trolololo singer

Straight out of 2010, this was one among many of the first "memes" to be popularized. I cannot stand listening to this now as much as I did then, but it certainly did leave it's impact.

5. Trapped in the Drive Thru

Weird Al Yankovic

A classic that was shared among all of my young friends, Trapped in the Drive Thru is a classic YouTube parody that nobody could get enough of.

6. Like a Boss

The Lonely Island

The Lonely Island has had their fair share of viral videos including "I'm on a Boat," "I just had sex," and more. However, this one spread around my school like wildfire.

7. Chocolate Rain

Tay Zonday

Best for last: Chocolate Rain by Tay Zonday. A true embodiment of the YouTube classics next to "Charlie Bit my Finger," no one can forget this video. What great vocals.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
