I know I have a lot of things to do to improve my self and my work but I just don't feel like it. I spent a good amount of time to just binge watch youtube all day, every day. I kinda feel bored watching beauty videos like they get repetitive because big youtubers basically received the same thing, I prefer more vlog style videos of people that do youtube on the side because I feel like they have so much more interesting things to tell.
It seems like every week I found a new channel that I'm obsessed with and I want to share it here. I will start from more recent findings.
I found out her channel on a recommendation list when I watched a DIY channel. It was a vlog where she moved in to her dorm room and I liked the thumbnail so I watched it. Turns out she is an art school student and I feel kinda related to what she does because I went to art school, too, if you guys don't know. I have a bachelor of art title behind my name. So, her homework and all the art stuff she's doing takes me back to all my university year where I would be up until 4 in the morning to draw, bending wire, smoothing out clay, etc. And what I love the most about her is that she looks very normal, I'm very bored watching youtuber with their (what appears to be a very) glamorous life. I just don't get the connectivity I'm having before. The funny thing is, she's been uploading to youtube since 4 years ago, but I only love the vlogs since she started college. I feel like she's being her self more. The videos before she looked wayy older than she really is.
Learn French With Alexa
I got very bored and decided to find videos about learning french because I've tried Duolingo and they just teach words not an actual sentences. I found this channel and Alexa is just the best teacher I could ask for! Following her tutorial feels like she's just there right in front of me. She also make little quiz at the end of every video so I can remember better. Her pronounciation are also slow enough for me to follow and understand. A few other videos I watched just talk very fast and very minimal on explaining the use of words or pronounciation. So I recommend this channel so much if you also like to learn French. Oh, and since I have rhotacism, I can pronounce the French R so well. Mehehe.
My all time favourite youtube personality, Estee Lalonde, mention this channel on one of her Japan Haul video and I'm hooked. This channel explain a lot of things we often heard about Japan very nice and thorough so I feel like I'm learning something new in a fun way. They also always explain the history very well and I like that. I like history. I also love to see the craftmanship, the passion and thoughts of Japanese when it comes to inventing and creating much more comfortable life. This is a very great starting point if you want to know about Japan and learn their lifestyle and heritage.
Also found her in a recommendation list, the first video that caught my attention was "Day in a life of a teen mom in school". I was always curious about the life of people who got pregnant by accident and how they continue living their life, as in our culture it's such an embarassing thing to say and this girl just comfortably share her story. I thought it was brave and so nice of her to let people know that life doesn't stop when you screw up. Another thing I love is her positivity, it's not the fake positivity I see around lately in the youtube-sphere, but like, she's chill. And Mateo, her baby, is sooo cute, I can't. She usualy just stay at home to watch Mateo and her little sister, numerous trip to Target (her favorite place), and sometimes to mall. Her life is like mine, so I love her. Hahaha. She just started to live with her boyfriend (who got her pregnant). It's fun seeing them start a new life and I just can't wait to start mine.
I also been thinking about doing some DIY project, using physical object like really using paper, glue, scissors, cutter, and all that kind of stuff, to spark the creativity in me again. If you have ideas orfuseful DIY to do, please tell me. In the meantime, I'll try my best to be productive again.
