Emma Chamberlain Is One Of The Best Things To Happen To YouTube

And this is why.

Emma Chamberlain Is One Of The Best Things To Happen To YouTube

Think back to when you first started watching YouTube videos. Most of us probably began by watching silly videos like "Charlie bit my finger," “Scary car commercial," or "The Gummy Bear song."

After this phase died down, watching music videos on Youtube became the next best thing. I remember sitting in the computer room of my house watching Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Chris Brown, and Jesse McCartney music videos like it was my day job.

When I entered junior high, I made a huge shift in the content I watched on YouTube. At this time, beauty gurus were on the rise. Macbarbie07 showed me how to redecorate my room for absolutely every occasion. Bebexo showed me how to curl my hair and additionally, how to do six different types of braids. Mirellabellebeauty showed me how to make my eyelashes look longer than life. Bubzbeauty showed me how to properly care for my skin. The list goes on and on.

Now, as a sophomore in college, I watch different content on YouTube. Yes, I still watch beauty gurus, but ones I can relate to much more. I watch YouTubers that vlog. I watch fitness YouTubers. I watch YouTubers that do skits. Watching YouTube is more about learning how to better my lifestyle now and more about enjoyment.

Emma Chamberlain is one of the YouTubers that I enjoy the most.

I first discovered Emma during the summer of 2017. She had no more than 50,000 subscribers at the time. She would film very raw videos. She didn't wear makeup. She didn't do her hair. She went thrifting almost every week. She was obsessed with iced almond milk lattes. She was in her car maybe a little too much.

But most importantly, she made me die laughing at every single video she made. Now, with 1 million subscribers, she is exactly the same and has the same effect.

All throughout her YouTube career, Emma has been editing the same exact way. Only recently did she switch from filming on her iPhone to filming with an actual camera. Her content is raw and genuine. When you watch her videos, it feels like you’re hanging out with your best friend, not just watching a girl on your screen. Her 1 million subscribers notice it and love it. Emma has shown girls that you do not need to act perfect and put together at all times.

A problem with past beauty gurus and even beauty gurus now is that many of them act as though they have no flaws. They almost act inhuman.

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.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
