A Rambling, Fragmented, and Somewhat Off-Topic Introduction

I know it's going to come out eventually, so I'm just going to say it: I spend about 45% of my waking hours on YouTube. So, when I was pressed to come up with an ongoing topic for this blog for English class, that was my first thought. Actually, that's a lie. I lie kind of a lot, sorry about that; don't worry, you'll get used to it. My first reaction was to blog Lord of the Rings, however, that's not exactly an ongoing topic that is very current, unless I want to read them yet again, and I just did that a few months ago.

Anyways, YouTube, right. The things I really enjoy watching on YouTube are channels like sXePhil, AngryFilmsProductions, and DavisFleetwood, in which these people comment- hilariously, I might add- on what is going on in the news. I’ve always been interested in the news, probably because growing up, we only got one channel on our TV, and that channel aired news for about 10 hours a day. So, as a child, I was generally better informed about current events than most adults I cared to talk to. Unfortunately, when I came to college, I stopped watching TV and found the joys of high-speed Internet, which provides all of the entertainment and none of that boring important stuff.

Getting back on topic, my next thought was to blog about what I was watching on YouTube every week, but I can't really see anyone being interested in that but me and other Jory Caron fangirls, and let's just face it, the fangirl crowd is kind of socially awkward and I don't want to hang out with them.

So then I thought, "Well, if I can't write about watching the great YouTube social commentators, why don't I just copy them?" So that's exactly what I'm going to do. For the duration of this sentence, I mean, blog assignment, I’m going to attempt to keep up with the current events going on every week, and add them to into the blender of my mind, along with 2 parts trying-too-hard humor, 3 parts of my own biased opinion, 1 part irony, 1 part self-deprecation, a pinch of apocalyptic doom, blend until only slightly chunky, and serve to you, in the form of what my English teacher calls an op-ed piece. My youthful idealism hopes it goes down smooth, but the pragmatist in me knows better than that.
