We Are All Influencers Because Somebody's Always Watching

People are always watching, so who are you influencing?

We Are All Influencers Because Somebody's Always Watching
Mya Weatherby

As most of us know, being an influencer is a big deal these days especially through social media. And it seems as though every day there are more and more popping up. You may be one of those people who would love to be an influencer and try to make revenue from it but doesn't believe you could ever be one since you aren't popular or have the following. You could be someone one who actually doesn't care and dislike the who influencing the industry. No matter which one you are, I'm going to give you some shocking news. Are you ready?

You are an influencer.

Whether you like it or not, you are an influencer. Amongst your friends, family, your school, your clubs, your jobs, literally no matter who you are or what you are doing you are an influencer. Now you may think I am completely wrong or you may know exactly where I am going with this, but I encourage you to keep reading.

So when I started pursuing the whole influencer lifestyle, I didn't have the following, I didn't nor do I now think I am popular. I remember having no idea what it really meant to be an influencer. Whether it was picking a niche and understanding the marketing aspect of it all, I was clueless. What I soon found out was that my whole life I have been an influencer without even knowing.

Looking back through my life I noticed the people I hung out with or I looked up too, I would want to do things the way they do or take their advice. Then the whole idea of who your closest friends are is the kind of person you will become in the next few years had never been so noticeable until then. I think about all of the things I'm interested in, what I watch, what I say, and overall how I act and I see how I have a lot of people in my life that are influencers.

All of this to say, the people that you are allowing in your life will influence you in some way. Then it also works the other way around where someone is being influenced by you and is watching you (not in a creepy way). Something that I have to remind myself is even if people aren't saying anything, commenting or liking my pictures, or even subscribing to my channel, people are still paying attention and I still have influence and so do you.

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.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
