5 YouTubers To Watch For The Person Who'd Rather Watch Netflix

I used to put in extra effort to avoid the YouTube bandwagon... now I'm watching it in between Netflix seasons.

5 YouTubers To Watch For The Person Who'd Rather Watch Netflix

For the longest time, I refused to hop onto the YouTube bandwagon. I'd much rather spend my time watching (or re-watching) TV shows and movies on Netflix. Watching a twenty minute to an hour-long video of someone talking about themselves? No thanks. I'd rather start re-watching my favorite series for the third time. But then, I discovered these five YouTubers/YouTube channels, and I was suddenly binge-watching their videos as fast as I binge-watched eleven seasons of Grey's Anatomy (yes, I stopped at season eleven... but that's a discussion for another time).

So, before you hit "next episode" on Netflix, I can tell you from personal experience these five YouTube channels are just as entertaining.

1. Shane Dawson


I recently discovered Shane Dawson, and he is officially my favorite YouTuber ever. Between his iconic conspiracy videos that feel like watching an entertaining documentary, his vlogs with his hilarious "squad," and his numerous multi-part series that you can literally binge watch — Shane Dawson's channel "shane" is my go-to when I can't find anything on Netflix.

2. The Bucket List Family

The Bucket List Family's videos are 100% binge-able! They release a new video every week about their adorable, young family's aesthetic adventures around the world. If you can name it, they've probably been there. But the coolest thing about them is that they aren't travel vloggers posting about their "luxurious vacations;" it is all about becoming immersed into the cultures that make up this beautiful world. Ten out of ten, recommend!

3. Gabe Erwin

Gabe Erwin is known for his hilarious reaction videos. Although his videos are a little shorter than those found on the aforementioned channels, they are still super fun to watch. My favorite videos are the ones where he interviews some of the people in the videos he reacts to.

4. The Late Late Show with James Corden

Yes, "The Late Late Show with James Corden" is a TV show. But his YouTube channel is comedy gold. I could spend hours watching his "Carpool Karaoke" series, his underrated "Take a Break" videos, and the legendary "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts" segments. Those are just (in my opinion) the best; he has SO many videos on there, though, you'll probably be entertained until a new season of your favorite Netflix show is added.

5. Ryland Adams

Surprising My Dad With His Dream Car!YouTube

So, Ryland Adams and Shane Dawson are kind of a package deal. You watch one, you probably watch the other. Ryland's videos are mainly vlogs with Shane and their famous "squad," but they are so fun to watch when you've gone through all the Shane vlogs. Ryland is hilarious, too, and his videos will keep you just as entertained as Shane's.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
