Help: I'm Addicted To BuzzFeed

It's more like a lifestyle choice if you ask me.

Help: I'm Addicted To BuzzFeed

We all know how it goes: We go on the computer to be productive for once, and suddenly we realize we've wasted three hours re-watching the same hilarious BuzzFeed videos over and over again. BuzzFeed has become a source of entertainment, news, and delicious recipes for millions of people across the world. Allow me to take you through my typical BuzzFeed routine.

1. I am ready to get a head start on an essay

I'm about to tackle this essay. APA format? No biggie.

2. When suddenly...

It's time for a well-deserved break. So what, I only have the header done? That took a long time.

3. Time to get distracted

The internet just creeps up on you, y'know?

4. Social media catches my eye

Don't even try to tell me you don't automatically log into Facebook every time you go on the computer, because not only are you lying to me, you're lying to yourself.

5. My weakness pops up on my timeline

It's like waking up on Christmas morning when I see a new BuzzFeed video on my Facebook timeline.

6. I struggle between clicking and not clicking

The struggle is beyond real sometimes.

7. I succumb to my desires to click on the new video

(And probably all future rounds. Let's be real here, people.)

8. I see if my favorite BuzzFeed actors are in the video

I want to be Chris and Keith's best friend. Seriously, is that so much to ask? I think not.

9. I get genuinely upset if Keith and/or Chris are not in the video

They're so funny! I want them to be in every video.

Every. Video.

10. I get excited when they're both in the video

A. Their faces tell me that this is going to be an entertaining video.

B. That chicken looks really good, but that might be my "I was too busy doing homework that I forgot to eat dinner" hunger talking. (No it's not.) (I love chicken.)

11. I watch the video

Duh. (Side note: I've never seen the video this picture is from, so you can bet your bottom dollar I will be searching for it once I'm done writing this article.)

12. I watch the video at least three more times

Y'know, just in case I wasn't paying attention the first time?

13. I peruse the suggested videos featured at the end

I am never disappointed.

14. I go to the website, because their multiple YouTube channels weren't enough

There is never a dull moment on their website.

15. I take every BuzzFeed quiz known to man

The astrology quizzes are my absolute favorite to take.

16. I look at the clock


17. After much consideration, I decide I need to stop...

"Stop" is such a strong word, though.

18. For now.

I'll be back for the recipes.

Will I cut this BuzzFeed addiction out of my life anytime soon?

I'm way too invested in this addiction to try to get rid of it.

In case you were wondering, I had to watch the "Things Disney Characters Do That'd Be Creepy If You Did Them" video before finishing this article. I was thoroughly entertained. Best part? Chris was in it!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.

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.
