YouTube Wednesday: Sophie’s Series…the booktuber that you will love fangirling out with

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about an amazing BookTuber that you NEED to be subscribed to. I’m serious. Go subscribe right now & then we’ll continue. Don’t worry I’ll wait. Did you subscribe? Awesome! Now that you’ve already made one great decision today, make another one by sticking around to find out why you’ll love Sophie’s channel (trust me you made the right decision by subscribing). Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Sophie’s ‘The Booktube Newbie Tag!’, which was uploaded on March 27th, 2015 (you can check out this video below). This is a really great video to start off with because it allows you to not only get a glimpse of Sophie’s personality, but also her love of books. In this video Sophie allows us to really feel like we know her by explaining why she started a BookTube channel, what book/book series got her into reading, and what fun & unique things she can bring to the BookTube community. After watching this video you’ll feel like Sophie is already your bestie, and it will leave you wanting to know even more about her. Luckily for us, we can learn more about Sophie in her ‘FIVE OF MY AUTO BUY AUTHORS’ video, which was uploaded on July 10th, 2015. Honestly you can learn A LOT about a person based off of who their fav authors are. When you’re a bookworm you read A LOT of books, and I mean A LOT of books so because of this, we all have a small list of authors who we love so much that you can blindly buy any book they release and know that you’ll likely fall in love with it. It’s fun to see our fav BookTubers nerd out with us.

Next up we have Sophie’s ‘BOOKS I’M BRINGING TO COLLEGE!’ video, which was uploaded on September 26th, 2015. Ok, real talk for a second everyone. Now if you’re a book nerd then you know that this is a problem that you either have faced, or will face in your lifetime. For most of us books are like family, they take you to far away places when you need an escape, put a smile on your face during good times, and offer you a warm sheet to cry on during bad times. So the prospect of leaving behind these treasures when we pursue higher education is really sad. Luckily, Sophie is here to remind us that it’s fine if you take some of your books with you on this adventure they call college, and even describes how she decided which books to take. This video is a MUST WATCH for all book addicts. The last video that we’re going to talk about is Sophie’s ‘ANTICIPATED RELEASES OF 2016’ video, which was uploaded on January 9th, 2016 (you can check out the video below). In this video Sophie gives us a list of some of the INCREDIBLE books she’s excited for this year, and also a quick summary of why she’s excited for these books. If you love books then this video will definitely get you hyped for the many awesome 2016 releases (it’s going to be a VERY good year people of the internet!). So now that you’re completely addicted to Sophie’s channel, go check out the rest of her videos, I promise that this is one channel that you’ll constantly have on replay.

Monday Memos: Meet Sean…the man who captured the internet’s heart

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to discuss another topic that has been sweeping the internet lately. Now we all know that in the past few years, the problem of bullying in school and online has gotten considerably worse. This problem has also gotten a lot of attention from YouTube personalities, celebrities, and news stations. Sadly, many people have taken their own lives because they can’t deal with the insults, laughs, and stares that come with being bullied. So you might be asking “ok what does this have to do with this blog post?’. Well a few days ago, a picture went around the internet, that started a hunt for a man who was fat-shamed (which means making fun of someone who is overweight), while dancing at a club in London. When a woman in L.A. found out about this, she decided to take a stand in defense of this man, and the internet and celebrities soon followed. So let’s dive into the blog and find out more about the man everyone on the internet is talking about!

 

A few days ago, Los Angeles resident Cassandra Fairbanks (who writes for the website ‘The Free Thought Project’) saw photos of a man on the website ‘4-chan’. The photos had been uploaded by someone who saw the man dancing at a club, and included the caption, “Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing.” Here are the photos:

After seeing the photo, Cassandra immediately took to Twitter and asked if anyone knew who the man was, because she and a LA group of women called the ‘Coconut Oil Friendship Club’, wanted to do something special for the mystery man. She began promoting the hashtag #FindDancingMan on Twitter, and her group set up a fundraising page so they could raise money to throw the man a huge dance party. Many celebrities such as: Pharrell Williams, Ellie Goulding, Cher Lloyd, Este Haim, and Moby have offered to attend and/or perform at the party, Spike TV’s Bar Rescue star Russell Davis has offered his bartending services, and The Los Angeles Coliseum has said that they will donate their stadium to host the event. The dancing man was later identified as a man named Sean, and now has a Twitter account (@dancingmanfound), which has over 65,000 followers (as of March 8th, 2015). Cassandra has said that she is in contact with Sean, and that they will decide on a date for the party when he returns to England from a business trip. The ‘Coconut Oil Friendship Club’s fundraising page has already raised $35,372 (their goal was $20,000) in 2 days, and they have said that any excess money that they raise will be donated to an anti-bullying charity. I think that it’s so cool that the world has come together to defend Sean, and help spread the message that no one has the right to ruin a person’s happiness just because of their physical appearance. This is also a good reminder that the golden rule we all learn as children is not a cliché we should just forget when we grow up. I think the great philosopher Ellen Degeneres put it best when she said, “Be kind to one another”. The events over the past few days have really put into perspective just what could be accomplished if we truly took these words to heart.
