Oh the things we (I) do for blog posts…
In today’s installment of all things Shree, we have another confessional!
Totally enticing, I know (not really).
So, I’m 45 …years…old. I’m done with the school studies. I’m done with the college studies. I’m done with the university studies.
Did I enjoy them? No, not particularly. I had good intentions. Really. I’d tell myself, you need to start early, so you can remember stuff. You shouldn’t do the last minute studying! It’s not good! It’s really, really…not good.
And there was a reason why it wasn’t good. See, I could “ace” an exam with last minute panicked dumping of all information needed to pass an exam. However (and this is a true experience), I’ve walked out of an exam after regurgitation of said information without:
- Remembering what the questions were.
- Being able to recall any of the information that was regurgitated.
If I had to re-sit the exam all over again, my mind would have just stared and blinked stupidly at me.
So, can someone explain to me why I love watching YouTube videos of students in college or school, especially those that do “study videos”?
Well, don’t feel too bad, because I honestly have no idea either..except…
- Most of the videos I watch are done very aesthetically.
- Two of these YouTubers that happen to be my favourite have such calming voices.
- The music that they (the above two mentioned) choose as background music is also quite relaxing.
- Their handwriting is really pretty.
- They also make really pretty school notes.
- They use stationery.
And anyone who knows me know…I. FREAKING. LOVE. STATIONERY.
If you own a stationery shop..or an art shop..but more, if it’s a stationery shop you’ll have an automatic best friend in me 😀
One of the dreams I play around with is to own a stationery shop.
I could live in a stationery shop. Even better if it is a bookshop WITH loads of stationery. Even better if it has art supplies in it too!
I took some screenshots of the types of videos I like to watch…it’s like…stationery porn? hehe..sigh..
There’s another type of video that I love to watch. YouTubers who create bullet journals. The art is so pretty. The stationery…yea, you get the drift.
Oh and since we are on a roll with confessions of the YouTube kind…I also at times enjoy watching dorm room tours, room tours, office room tours, bedroom tours, apartment tours, study table tours…yea..I think it’s for the way a place is decorated? Sometimes I go..ooo nice idea. Then the idea just fizzles because Abigail my magical sloth gazes her deadly sloth like gaze on the idea. Ha!
So..help me out here? Not make me feel so lonely with my weird YouTube obsession? Do you have any YouTube weirdness?
