The Best Twitch Memes of The Year

Twitch.tv is a safe haven for gamers to watch their favorite players stream video games. People watch for many different reasons. The personalities, the gimmicks, the games, and the music; but there is one thing all twitch lovers hold near and dear to their heart, memes. The twitch chat is rife with them and the streamers meme almost constantly on stream also, but the pinnacle of these come out on the YouTube stream highlights when their underpaid editors get a crack at their overlord's hours of uncut footage. Memes vary between games and since I only watch League of Legends streamers, I will be focusing on these, here are some of my favorite twitch memes of this year.

1. Kermitting Suicide

This is the perfect situational meme for when you've just completely messed up and just want the game and your life to be over.

2. Typewriter Kermit

Another quintessential Kermit the Frog meme, this one is the embodiment of twitch chat or your raging teammates.

3. Boosted by Xiaoweixiao

A meme based off the infamous pro-player, XiaoweiXiao that boosted players into higher ranks, whenever you do something boosted you can just photoshop XiaoweiXiao's face onto the mistake or your face and everything is fixed.


4. Boosted Bonobo

A term popularized by nightblue3, it is usually a term given to a player that is playing like an actual monkey, associated with the Xiaoweixiao meme. We all have at least one of these on our team a game.


5. 3rd favorite streamer - Dyrus

Some memes really are random and this one spawned from a random donation on his stream and violently spiraled out of control. Dyrus will now forever be known as everyone's third favorite streamer.


6. Free Tyler1

After Tyler1 got perma-banned for his toxicity this twitch chat meme came to save the day and is still one of the most spammed things in all league of legends twitch rooms. Keep on spamming, we'll get our alpha back someday.


7. The Golden Kappa

The Kappa is the most common twitch emoji thrown around and most might not even notice it anymore, but the legend of the Golden Kappa is paramount. Only one user a month can have it and streams will often give preferential treatment to the one bearing this golden sign from the gods.


8. Run It Down Mid

Another meme made popular because of the amazing Tyler1, it is when you just give up and start running down mid over and over till your team loses. This will usually get you banned, but we all know we're guilty of doing this at least once. Buy those tears and mobi boots and run my child, run.


This year had many great memes and these were just some of my favorites. What are yours, did I miss anything huge?

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

4417
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11898

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
