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.

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.
