7 Videos To Watch When You're Having A Bad Day

I'd rather be LOL-ing than crying.

I love YouTube because you can go there and find a video to suit any mood you are in. If you're happy, go find a laughing cat video, if you're sad you can find the ASPCA commercial to watch. But, what I usually do when I'm sad is find funny videos because I generally don't like to be sad for very long. So, here are 7 videos to make you LOL instead of cry.

1. "History of Japan" by Bill Wurtz

My high school history teacher screened this video for my class during the World War II section of the class. I have watched this video approximately ten times since. The narrator tells a very informal version of Japan’s history up until modern times.

2."This is what happens when you reply to spam email" James Veitch by TED

I found this gem buried in a mound of serious and highly informative TED Talks. James narrates to us what happened when he emailed back a random spam email and the result is pretty hilarious.

3. "How to trick people into thinking you’re good looking" by Jenna Marbles

This is the video that put Jenna Marbles on the map and for good reason. In this video, Jenna shows you how you, too can trick people into thinking that you are good looking, with the assistance of a few cosmetic items and

4. "I Drove Off a Cliff…Again" by Gabbie Hanna

I love Gabbie’s videos because she can turn anything into a funny story. In this video, she tells the story of the time that she didn’t listen to her parents and then almost died because of her bad driving skills. It sounds very boring and sad but the way Gabbie tells it will have you laughing out loud until you pass out.

5. "The Spider Who Couldn’t Hide" by Chad-Michael Simon

This video is short and hilarious. I am terrified of spiders but this is just really funny and a good example of object permanence.

6. "how is prangent formed" by J.T. Sexkik

It amazes me how many ways people can misspell one word. It scares me even more that the word in question relates to being in charge of another human for the next eighteen years and they can’t even it spell correctly.

7.'"FIRST REPUBLICAN DEBATE HIGHLIGHTS: 2015" — A Bad Lip Reading of The Republican Debate' by Bad Lip Reading

Personally, I think that the entire 2016 election and all of its debates was a joke, but this “Bad Lip Reading” just verifies it.

I really hope at least one of these videos makes someone laugh because they all make me laugh.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.
