Why Olan Rogers Is One To Watch

There are millions of YouTube users creating and uploading content every day. Some of these content creators are using YouTube as an outlet to bring their creative visions to an audience that they may not otherwise be able to reach. One such content creator is Olan Rogers.

Olan Rogers, a.k.a "The Tennessee Wonder Child," has been producing content for YouTube in one form or another almost as long as YouTube has been around. He began by creating videos with friends for a channel called Balloon Shop. He eventually branched out into his own channel and has been uploading eve since. He's most known for his story telling videos and sketches.

Not only does Olan make original content for YouTube, but he's taken on many other avenues as well. He started his own clothing line called Olan Rogers Supply. His apparel business has gone far beyond clothing, and has even had a scholarship fund.

Rogers also realized one of his dreams a couple of years ago when he was able to open The Soda Parlor in his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. The Soda Parlor sells delicious floats and pieces from Roger's clothing line. The Soda Parlor also plays host to "fan appreciation nights" frequently. These parties are a way for Rogers to thank all of the people that watch his videos and take the time to support him. I was fortunate enough to be able to go to one such party while on a trip to Nashville, and it was a blast. Olan is one of the kindest people you will ever meet, and his love for everyone there shines through so brightly.

With all of these accomplishments, some may wonder what's next for Rogers. Well, he has actually started something new recently. Rogers teamed up with New Form Digital and animators at Studio Joho to create a pilot for a cartoon called "Final Space." This space adventure is beautifully done, dark when it wants to be, and beyond charming. Rogers has said that he had the idea for a cartoon for a long time, and finally got the opportunity to have it come to life a few weeks ago. The pilot episode is up on his YouTube channel and has over 200,000 views. The episode has gotten positive reviews, and Rogers has been keeping his fans updated on what will become of the series.

Rogers said that New Form asked him if he had any more ideas, and they're already working on concept art for a new cartoon called "Lions Blaze." Rogers creative ambition is inspiring for all of those who watch his videos. His determination and contagious enthusiasm are why people should be watching out for him and what he has in store.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
