YouTube Rabbit Hole

YouTube is the devil when you’re trying to get work done. I am trying to do this writing thing so I use google, instagram, youtube and occasionally facebook and twitter to research or comeuppance with stories. Great. They are a huge limitless source of information, right? My only problem is that with youtube I tend to fall down the ‘YouTube rabbit hole’ of sorts. thanks to the stupid little related/suggested videos on the right hand side I can start off watching a how-to video on some tech thing that should only take 5 minutes or so and end up 3 hours later watching ‘Knuck if you buck’ or some 90s R & B playlist. it’s horrible. Add in my ADHD and yeah, it’s really bad. I really love YouTube. I mean you can be educated and entertained at the same time but sometimes it can be a bit much.

I know you’re probably thinking ‘just google it and read an article instead of going to the video’. I’m the same way with searching on Google. All over the place! I’ll start off searching one place and end up someplace totally off topic. I gotta focus, my G. Maybe I’ll just go old school, go to the library and look through the encyclopedia and actual physical newspapers.

    1. yes Tev! I used to listen to them on my way to work and while at work but with my schedule change I haven’t been able to. Once I start one interview I have to watch another, and another and another! lol thanks for the comment.

  1. I go on youtube for a simple DIY video and that leads to a webseries discovery and 3 hours later I have to force myself to stop. And this happens several times a week!

    1. And then you forgot what you learned in the diy video so you have to go back to watch it starting the cycle all over! LMAO
