So I’m looking back at a lot of posts of mine from 2018 in the rant thread…… wow. Just looking at those posts reminded me of how much of an absolute dumpster fire that year was, as was its previous years 2016 and 17. 2019 was at least a little better but could still get pretty frustrating from time to time with certain scenarios. Then came 2020.

But anyway, yeah, that was just an awful year for me. Cutting ties with so many toxic friends (that one and 2020 were two big ones far as removing toxic friends from my group), even getting to the point where I was getting sick of another close friend of mine and didn’t take him out until April of the following year (if you know who, you know who), my dad’s side of the family becoming completely divided no thanks to my absolute scumbag grandpa cheating on my late grandma and just being absolutely toxic (and sadly it only got worse since this year since she passed on from covid this year; my dad hardly talks to anyone on his side of the family now), dealing with that INCREDIBLY disorganized **** show mobile barbershop known as Mobile Cuts Boston (but if anything, it really helped me learn that it’s not worth clinging to if your boss is just gonna continually ghost you), among other stuff.

If anything though, I also really don’t like how I sounded that year. I matured a lot more by 2019 and 2020 especially. There were times I really just sounded like an absolute ****** and came off really cringey (if anything I also blame that on certain toxic friends who had a big influence on me like that). I’m really glad I changed more these past three years.

YouTube has always had some of the strangest video trends, and no, I'm not speaking of all of the various challenges over the years like the Ice Bucket Challenge or the Mannequin Challenge, I mean bandwagon trends like unboxing videos that even Cookie Monster jumped on board with years ago. Anyway, it seems like the biggest new trend right now is keyboard videos, in which people basically just record videos of themselves typing on their computer keyboards, and that's pretty much it . . . it seems like almost like it's becoming something of a subgenre of ASMR videos, since it seems like a majority of these keyboard videos are so we can hear what their keyboards sounds like.

A lot of content creators on YouTube must be out of ideas right now, because there's suddenly an influx of videos of doctors, surgeons, and other medical professionals analyzing the injuries Harry and Marv endure via Kevin's booby traps in the HOME ALONE movies, and it's like we've already had YouTube videos like that for years - how many different takes could there be on these injuries?
