'The Yes Theory' Encouraged Me To Live My Life To The Fullest, And It Could Do The Same For You

I recently stumbled across a YouTube channel that changed my life for the better. It seems silly to say that some dudes on social media could make you a better person, but watch even one of their videos and you'll see why they have people hooked.

'The Yes Theory' Encouraged Me To Live My Life To The Fullest, And It Could Do The Same For You

Last week, I saw a recommended video on my YouTube homepage called "We threw an INSANE PARTY for $0" and decided to click on it. The video was all about creating an awesome experience with complete strangers they meet on the street, for no money. Once I watched it, I clicked on their channel and started binge-watching all their videos.

All of the videos on this channel are about taking risks and making your life exciting. It's all about the experience of things and sometimes saying "yes" to a crazy idea will pay off in incredible ways.

The creators of this channel, Yes Theory are 4 best friends from all around the world, who aim to live their lives to the fullest and meet people wherever they go. In every video with "strangers," they announce that they don't consider anyone a stranger, there are just friends you haven't met yet.

In their YouTube bio, here's part of their mission statement: "Ammar, Thomas, Matt, and Derin met in Montreal, Canada in the summer of 2015 and bonded over their shared desire to live a life that challenged and excited them."

As I got deeper and deeper into their videos, they really showed me the importance of stepping outside of your comfort zone. In a lot of their videos, they are talking to random passersby on the street and trying to get them to join their crazy adventures. Here are some of their adventures: 16 STRANGERS IN A MANSION OVERNIGHT!!, Surprising Strangers With a Flight Above The Oscars!!! and recently, WE HELICOPTER BUNGEE JUMPED WITH WILL SMITH (over Grand Canyon).

They live by the mantra "Seek Discomfort," and even have merch to reinforce this mindset. It's super cool to think about, and their idea of seeking discomfort and stepping outside of your box is something we should all strive to do.

So, if you're bored from studying or are looking for a new show to watch, I would totally check out the "Yes Theory" YouTube page. There's a ton of videos for you to binge-watch (like I did for a week straight) and they will inspire you to make your life more exciting and worthwhile.

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.
