Why Youtube Is My Obsession

If you haven't yet figured out the wonderful world that is youtube, then you, my friend, are missing out.

Why Youtube Is My Obsession

Why is it that I have an obsession with Youtube? What is it about the site that makes me happy? Exactly how many hours did I just spend watching all of those videos? Yes, these are questions that I ask myself frequently and yes, the answers that I come up with are incredibly ridiculous, but we all have our guilty pleasure. Right? Well, here are some of the main reasons why I am obsessed with Youtube and you may think that I am crazy, but part of me still believes that Youtube is worth my time and energy.

1. It fills a void in my life

Honestly, everyone may think that this is an extremely sad thing to say but when I thought about it, I realized how true it was. For example, if I am feeling like I need to see more love in the world I watch a wedding video or an animal rescue video or anything that brings about those warm and fuzzy feelings. If I want to have a few good tears I watch a soldier coming home video because that really gets me. So, whatever emotion I feel like I am needing that day and cannot get from my current surroundings I go to Youtube.

2. The music videos


For some odd reason I love watching music videos. I grew up dancing and so I like to see what choreographers do with certain pieces of music and I also love a good story. So, if I am able to watch a music video that has a killer song and captivating video, I can 100% guarantee that I will like the song ten million times more. All because of the music video and I guess partly because of the song too.

3. The tutorials


I mean who doesn't love an awesome tutorial? On Youtube you can literally find a tutorial for anything! You want to learn how to build a birdhouse? Search it on Youtube. Maybe you want to learn how to get the perfect highlighter look? Youtube is your best friend. Perhaps, you wanted to find out exactly how to solve the most difficult calculus equation in the world and you don't know where to even begin. People, Youtube has got your back!

4. Vloggers


Haha. This is a classic because Youtube is known for making people that shouldn't be famous, famous. Why in the world did I just spend 21 minutes and 34 seconds watching Emma Chamberlain talk about the clothes haul she just got? Who knows, but I was thoroughly intrigued by the clothes that she was putting together for her Coachella trip. The vloggers make my world go round.

5. Vines


Since vine is dead, Youtube allows us the ability to watch all of our favorite vines again and again and again. If that isn't reason enough to love Youtube with a fiery passion then I don't know what is.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
