In 2008, Shane Yaw, or Shane Dawson, launched his YouTube channel under the name ShaneDawsonTV. Since then, Dawson has been challenging himself and the entire YouYube community with his unique videos.

He started out doing skits as characters like Shanaynay, moving to food videos, trying weird girl products, ghost hunting, etc. Now Dawson is known for doing documentary-style series on YouTube most famous for "The Secret World of Jeffree Star."

Over the past month, Dawson has uploaded a six-part series of behind-the-scenes footage of creating his makeup collection in collaboration with Jeffree Star. The eyeshadow palette, "Conspiracy," gives me, someone who has been watching Dawson for years, the feels of everything Dawson has been through leading up to his launch.

From a bright yellow named "Food Videos" to a monochromatic black named "IlluminaTEA," the shade range and naming of the palette perfectly captures Dawson's YouTube career.

I have seen some indifference across the internet regarding Dawson's intentions with creating his collection. People are saying that he never was interested until he found out how much money he could make through sales.

When I saw people saying this, it got me thinking. I have been watching Dawson for years, and I always saw him as a genuine person. I always thought he deserved way more subscribers than he had due to always posting original content.

Dawson never had great sales with merch, and he states this in many of his YouTube videos. Dawson deserves everything that is happening to him right now because he is one of "the good ones." One of the YouTubers that rarely got sponsorships, yet still made videos every day for his fans.

So yes, maybe Shane was partly interested in making the palette because of the money involved, but I think more than that, Dawson wanted to give his fans something unique, and something they could create unique things with.

I cannot wait to get a hold of Dawson's collection and create the most amazing looks inspired by one of the most amazing YouTubers on the platform.

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.
