YouTube? More like, YouWasteMyTime

So guess what? I’m blogging again! Two days in a row! Quelle surprise!

I just love writing so much and I love getting feedback. I’m so lucky to have my loyal readers and I hope that I haven’t disappointed you yet. Well without further ado, let’s dive into my current thoughts.

Procrastination. It’s a daily struggle. To be quite honest, I found the time to write this blog both today and yesterday because I was procrastinating. Whenever I get started on something, I get distracted within minutes. I blame the internet. It really is not fair to people to have so much interesting content on the internet when there’s stuff to be done! Come on, universe, throw me a bone here!

Take, for example, buzzfeed. I have only recently discovered that website, and it is truly wonderful. It is just filled with lists and gifs about anything you could ever want. Doctor Who, Tina Fey, The Office, cute puppies… maybe those are just the things I’m looking up… but I’m guessing there’s stuff out there for you too!

My main weakness, though, is YouTube. It is just plain unfair to have all those videos out there, waiting to be discovered. Who has time for sociology when there is a six-part video about the injuries that occurred on the set of Lord of the Rings? I’ll tell ya who… not this girl! (I’m pointing to myself… just imagine it). Six parts!

And then there are those inspirational videos, like the kid president who gives us a pep talk. “Not cool, Robert Frost!” Or Jessica’s Daily Affirmation, when she expresses how much she loves her, “Allisons.” I don’t know what that means, but speaking for all the Allisons out there, we’re honored. Not to mention that the videos are funny to begin with, but then the autotune masters create songs out of the videos we already hold so dear: Double Rainbow, Bed Intruder, Jessica’s Daily Affirmation, etc.

Didn’t catch Justin TimberWeek on Jimmy Fallon? That’s ok! There’s only about eighty videos on YouTube recapping the whole thing. Or have you ever wondered what it looks like to see a kid’s Halloween candy taken away? Jimmy Kimmel so kindly put that on YouTube as well. It is literally a website goldmine of funny material. 

You tell yourself you’re going to get on for a split second, but then they get you hooked by “related videos.” All of a sudden it’s two hours later and you’re not even close to finishing your diorama (if you’re in the fifth grade or just really creative). 

I wish I could give you some enlightening advice to solve the internet addiction. If I had that, I would probably be done with all of my homework, but way behind on all of my pop culture knowledge. If pop culture was a subject, I would ace it. 

Anyways… The quote I leave you with today comes from one of the greatest films of all time, “The Sandlot.” Now that it’s fall, and there are bonfires and hayrides, I find myself talking about s’mores fairly often. This is my go-to quote when it comes to this delicious dessert and I feel like it doesn’t get the credit it deserves. So here are Hamilton “Ham” Porter’s instructions on how to make a s’more. 

“These are s’more’s stuff! Ok, pay attention. First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham. Then you roast the ‘mallow. When the ‘mallows flaming… you stick it on the chocolate. Then cover with the other end. Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good! Try some!” -Ham

Love your neighbor as yourself and never forget to Have a Great Day!

Much love,

Allie
