How Youtube has changed my life.

If you know me at all you know that I spend A LOT of time on Youtube, soaking in content.

If you aren’t “a youtuber” you’re probably thinking I listen to music and watch tutorials on pretty much anything….. Well actually, you would be wrong. I am subscribed to 67 different channels, with content ranging from the news based Phillip DeFranco Show, to watching the adventures of young graphic designer Karen Kavett, to watching the daily life’s of couple Alli and Charles Trippy, or Datev Gallegher, or the Butler Family.

I watch 4 daily vloggers who vlog everything and anything everyday of the year, birthdays, holidays and weekends included. This may seem unreasonable but it’s nice to watch something that you can relate to and feel for the people that are living their everyday lives just like you. Even if you don’t experience the same troubles as them, it’s nice to know that you are not the only one struggling.

Since subscribing to the channel CTFxC, I have added labels to myself. I have become a CTFxCer (Charles Trippy Fan/Friend/Family Core); A Nerdfighter; a part of the DLV; and a part of the Nation.

And finally, in the words of John Green (a young adult author and famous youtuber) “You can’t understand it from the outside you have to get an account you have to be apart of it.”

I posted this in response to Zero to Hero‘s Day 19 Prompt. 


My lifestyle…

“We have the spirit but don’t live the life.”
-Kevin [of the ladiedottie vlogs]

This quote definitely defines me and my life style. I think of myself a someone who is country but honestly?

I don’t COMPLETELY live the life.

YES; I listen to country music.

YES; I wear my (two) pairs of cowboy boots as often as humanly possible.

YES; I go line dancing consistently.

YES; I think sun dresses and cowboy boots are semi-formal.

NO; I am not afraid to get a little dirty.

But honestly?

I wasn’t raised on a farm.

I’ve never held a gun in my life.

I like fishing but can’t stay quite for that long.

I’m a city girl; I love skyscrapers, and taxis and the rush of not having to care about the people around you but at the same time wondering…. “What are their stories?”

So I’m a mix. I don’t hang antlers on my wall but my christmas stocking is made out of denim. I wouldn’t be able to go for very long without my flip flops (or the beach for that matter). But, for some reason I identify with the country life style. Maybe it’s my dad’s upbringing or some kind of urge to get out of the city… I truly don’t know. But I LOVE my best of both worlds experience!

Thanks Kevin for saying that! I’m not 100% sure why but it struck a cord! And if you a Dot do somehow end up reading this; thanks for daily vlogging! You two are one of my favorite daily vlogging channels!
