AHHHHHHHH! GUYS MY READING IS IN LESS THAN TWO HOURS AND I'M FREAKING OUT. I'M SO STUPIDLY NERVOUS. I know we just had a talk about this yesterday, but I can't help but be anxious. But I'm trying; I'm giving myself some down time before I start getting ready, lying down in bed and taking some keep breaths. Tbh, my day-to-day anxiety is bad enough, but this is a new level. This is the type of anxiety that has me wishing I had a prescription for Xanax. But without medication to relax my nerves, I'm just trying to take my mind off of my worries by watching videos and listening to music that makes me feel a little less on-edge. So to kill two birds with one stone, I'm going to be sharing those with you today, in case 1) you find yourself to be a bundle of worry at some point in the future or 2) you're just curious to see how I take my mind off of my stressors.

1) Buzzfeed
I always, always, always turn to Buzzfeed when I need to stop thinking about what's going on in my real life. Across their various channels, they have a wide array of videos that are funny, informative, socially aware, scientific...whatever you're in the mood for. My new go-to favorite is "Drunk Girls Get Surprised With Puppies"

2) "Get Ready With Me" videos
Last Blogmas we discussed my love for beauty gurus, but I don't think I ever told you how much I love Get Ready With Me's, GRWMs for short. They're exactly what they sound like: just girls readying their makeup, hair, and outfit for various occasions, whether that's prom, a holiday party, or just an average Tuesday. This sounds like it might be boring, but for some reason I am genuinely captivated by these videos, when they're well-edited and produced. My two favorite beauty vloggers are Meghan Rienks and Ingrid Nilsen; Meghan's GRWMs are cute and a little goofy, whereas Ingrid's are aesthetically pleasing and super soothing. Together it's the perfect nerve-fighting concoction.

3) Celebrity Interviews
This is going to sound so dumb, but watching my favorite celebrities be interviewed or play silly games to promote something is so entertaining; I find myself unabashedly grinning through the whole process. I already embedded my new fave "Tattoo Roulette with One Direction" the other day, so in its place here are some more of my personal favorites.

I mean obviously I love this one; it's two of my faves in one place

And tbh any interview with my boys is going to make me smile, but this one is just one of their more recent ones.

4) Covers 
Especially famous singers covering other famous singers. BBC Radio live lounge has some great videos that feature popular artists remastering some of their favorite songs, and it never disappoints. Some of my go-tos:

5) Ellen.
I mean...does this one even need any explanation? Ellen is the queen of all media, if not the whole world.

Kai is my all-time favorite child to be featured on the show

And if you haven't seen this iconic video from one of Ellen's first seasons, drop everything.

I think that's gonna do it for me tonight, guys. I have to start getting ready for my reading and attempt to stomach some dinner. I'm sure I'll have a positive recount to share with you tomorrow, but send your well wishes nonetheless!
