The internet has always made me happy since I was a young girl and there’s a lot on the internet that makes me happy- memes, Instagram reels, Snapchat stories. Though these things bring me extreme joy, nothing on the internet makes me happier than Youtube. Youtube, as we all know, is an online video-sharing platform.
I guess Youtube makes me happy because there’s so much to be seen on the platform. Through Youtube, I get to rewatch old vines, watch videos about braces- because I have braces and also because they are oddly satisfying- but also, I get to create and share my own videos!
Yes, that’s right! I create my own videos- not alone of course. When the coronavirus began to spread rapidly and we were all forced to stay inside, my sisters and I decided that we should create content for our already existing youtube channel. The idea was that we would create one or two videos just so that the channel wasn’t just filled with content from when we were younger. So one day, we got dressed up and shot our first video- and people loved it! So instead of just stopping with 2 videos, we continued making more and more, and now making videos has become a part of our schedules.
We only have 142 subscribers but it has been extremely fun seeing people comment under our videos and giving them likes or sharing them. And though I am in the videos, I always find myself rewatching them because it is so fascinating seeing myself on youtube.
From these videos, I have seen my family become so much closer through our film days and then re-watching the videos together. So in a way, that is how the internet makes me happy- by allowing me to be expressive on youtube with the people I love the most. And -shameless plug- you guys should definitely check out our channel!
