It's fascinating to realize that in this digital age we are able to communicate with one another instantly and implicate one's identity by a scandal or situation which can immediately result at the end of a career. It's happened with YouTube stars, and it occurs daily with famous figures that we grow to love and hate on a daily basis. Olivia Jade is one of the most well-known YouTubers on the web yet is stuck in a scandal due to her family's poor actions.

It's so simple to create a tweet, just a few lines of thoughts that occur over a situation or something that may grind your gears. We create these thoughts and share them on a platform with many other people who may think the same or different. With these thoughts becomes drama, and along with this platform, we are immersed in this news as it's the only thing we can think about.

Olivia posted a video talking about how she doesn't really care about school, she was just looking forward to game days and parties. After seeing the reaction of how people felt about the video on social media, she decided to make an apology. She realized her impact was so important that people were giving her backlash due to her tainted vocabulary and her careless speech. With the College Blues scandal occurring this was only another hit against her.

As a millennial, it's hurtful to see that the depiction of older generations of us is so tainted due to what they see us handle situations and opinions in the media. There are always arguments and dramatic elements of the news that result in meme culture and other ways of displaying the joke factor of what is currently occurring in the world. Do we do this to cope?

Yes, somewhat, the world has become such a foggy place over the past few years and it's becoming very hard to see the sun at this point. Us millennials do what we can with what we've learned and seen to draw light upon situations, yet still, keep up with the news. It doesn't make it right, but it doesn't make it wrong either. Olivia Jade's channel has been watched millions of times and she has a major fan base of viewers that watch her content daily.

Our first amendment right of freedom of expression allows us to speak upon whatever we feel is important or we are overall just passionate about, to begin with. If we didn't care about the world around us, we wouldn't be speaking about these matters so frequently and quickly online. It's simple to think that we don't care or are just making jokes about the situation, yet that's the furthest from the case as each and every one of us has a voice and opinion. It's scary how much one person's dumb, irrational decision could impact so many other aspects of life.

18 Times Kate Middleton Was Actually All Of Us In College, Beside The Princess Thing

Every girl has to go through her clueless college stage before she reaches Duchess status.

Kate Middleton is basically a household name by now, and how could this not be the case when she has the gorgeous hair, kind smile, and incredible fashion sense. With her constantly in the spotlight looking so put together, we sometimes forget that the Duchess was actually all of us in college!

Here are 18 times that Kate proved she was just like all of us.

1. Going all out in the name of school spirit

There is nothing like breaking out the war paint and screaming for your home team. Like Kate, we all love to get a little messy and make some memories with our friends.

2. Hanging out with the roomies

Some people may not get lucky in this area but for those who are best friends with their roommates, they understand the love. It's a dream come true for everyone who has always wanted to live with their best friends. It's like a sleepover that never ends.

3. Dressing up cute on the first day of school...

You got to make a good first impression on your way to school. Whether it's during your 7 A.M or 4 P.M., it's always best to dress to impress.

4. ...and wearing yoga pants for the rest of the year

And this goes all the way until the last week of school when you don't bother getting out of bed to wear pants at all.

5. Going grocery shopping and throwing in cookies, ice-cream, and every type of Pringles because your mom isn't there to say no

You'll probably regret that in a few months when the Freshman Fifteen kicks in.

6. Walking for miles from your car to your dorm carrying groceries

We can't park by the apartment for a solid five minutes to carry our groceries up to the kitchen or we will risk a ticket, but we can walk a few miles carrying food that gets heavier, and heavier, and heavier with every step.

7. Going out for a night on the town on a Friday night

Dancing, laughter, and fun? Everyone in college has been to a party or two. It's a classic part of the college experience. Sometimes you just need a distraction from all the essays and tests.

8. Being so late to class you threw on whatever your hands grabbed next

We've all been there. Our alarm doesn't go off, we press snooze a few too many times, or forget to even set an alarm and next thing you know we are running around the dorm room like Taz from Looney Toons. You throw on whatever, then run to class.

Unfortunately 9/10 times our outfits don't turn out. Although, Kate can certainly pull off this look, no matter how mismatched.

9. Pretending your walking to the same building as the cute boy you met so you have the excuse to keep talking to him

I am very guilty of doing this. Although I missed my class, at least I got to talk to the really cute boy who has class at 9:45 in the STEM building. It was worth it.

10. Sitting on the floor or standing because you're a poor college student who can't afford chairs or tables

Eating on the floor? Always. Being a college kid is tough and sometimes you have to sacrifice some things to obtain the others. Such as choosing chocolate milk and Halo Top over vegetables and hair conditioner.

Judging by Kate's beautiful locks, she chose the conditioner.

Probably the vegetables too.

We should just all follow her example.

11. Going on cute date with the boy you followed to class-turned-boyfriend

Now my short-lived romance may not have extended farther than us talking and walking to his class, but Kate and William obviously had a better ending. Nevertheless, college is the place to grow and date and possibly find the one.

12. Keeping your hair long and growing because you can't afford to get it cut

Don't trust your roommate. No matter how many times she begs you to let her cut it. Don't.

13. Turning 21 and getting dressed up and going out with your best friends

While this one probably doesn't apply to Kate, since you can drink at age 18 in most countries, all my people in the United States know the sweet freedom of turning 21. It's an iconic time in a students life and marks a huge milestone as well.

14. Passing out flyers for some type of movement or protest

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger - which is why college is the time to stand up for what you believe in. May that be RedforEd, Planned Parenthood, anti-Abortion, Trump, the Wall, pizza bagels, it's all an exercise of the first amendment.

15. Ranting to your friends about the professor that just "doesn't understand you"

You know your thinking about that professor right now as you read this. And you know that that's your reaction whenever they give you a bad grade or say something you disagree with at the tiniest degree.

16. Getting glammed-up for those senior photos

Pick out your best outfit and make sure it's a good hair day because everyone will be viewing these photos forever... and in Kate's place that is more than true. Luckily she looks as gorgeous as ever. Does she ever have a bad hair day?

17. Walking out of your last class knowing you'll never have to write a single paper again

And purposefully not thinking about how you will be going into the real world in less than a few days.

18. When you've graduated and realized you have no idea what you're going to do with your life

Maybe a prince will be right around the corner to sweep you off your feet so you won't have to figure your life out.
