Come Play! With Janny Jelly

Tired of watching remixed, dubstep cat videos? Yes. You are. Well, good news! Janny Jelly is now a permanent fixture of the YouTube-o-sphere, here to offer a demented substitute for your feline video fixation. We had a chance to speak with creator Allie Jennings about the project. Q: What exactly is Janny Jelly? A: Janny Jelly is a children’s show for lost adults. In this web series, Janny Jelly hosts a children’s TV show- seemingly similar to classic favorites like Blue’s Clues or Sesame Street — and though she mightRead More

Top Instagram Accounts You Should Follow

Being the social media guru that I am, I like exploring and discovering new accounts on Instagram. I look for inspiration, funny, motivation, and adventure-seeking. Many people I know also look for fashion and beauty fixes. Instagram is filled with so many things to spice up your feed, here’s some top accounts you should be following… If you’re into sports… Serena Williams- @serenawilliams Besides being athletic, she also has a silly side. Her IG features fun Dubsmashes, outfit pics and action shots.   If you’re into fitness… Kaisa and Jennifer-Read More
Look, I know I’m a writer on the internet, but sometimes I just hate the internet. Sometimes it just makes me want to kill myself and rip all my hair out at the roots. I’ve compiled a list of things I hate that you really only see on the internet, maybe to release some of my frustration. Or to make me really focused on how aggravating my non-problems are. It could go either way. 1. Click bait-y headlines Did I just use a click bait-y headline? Yes. Do they stillRead More

I’m not in the mood to write a big introduction, so too bad. #NoIntroZone (#TheyKnoooowBetter) 1. You rely on the sheer size of the internet to shield you from attention, kind of like how the last place anyone would notice you would be in a huge throng of people. Actually, it’s exactly like that. It’s paradoxical, but it works…except for when it doesn’t. 2. When it doesn’t work, you’re like, “Damn, how’d they find me?” But I mean, the answer is pretty fucking obvious. They found you in the sameRead More
Youtube is full of shameless self-promotion and senseless publicity for things nobody should care about. Of the hundreds of thousands of videos posted every hour, most go unnoticed and warrant little reason to get noticed. This is why I got together with two good friends and tried to do something meaningful, especially given current events.   1 Year Ago During a rehearsal for an open mic show, I stumbled upon a chord progression that I really liked. My mind immediately began racing to find lyrics. My bro Sean assisted, knowingRead More

My Editor – Captain Dudebro: A Response to XOJane

Writing was always a favorite past time of mine. Reading comprehension was always my highest score when it came to standardized testing, even as a little girl. My thoughts managed to come together in my head and I could articulate them on paper. Needless to say, being a writer was my life-long aspiration, but my life took a few different turns as I enter my late-twenties, I took other roles to pay the bills. Lucky for me, I found a few editors who believed the string of sentences I putRead More

New Year’s Resolutions for Your Social Media

I used to think that the term “young adult” referred to Twilight novels only, but I am tired of repeatedly crediting my generation as “twenty-somethings,” so here we are. New Year’s resolutions are either a popular or vexatious topic, depending on the seriousness of the declarations and the audience’s own commitment to growth and change, but there is hardly a young adult who doesn’t use social media in some form or another. In this Near Year if you make any resolutions, I hope you dance, yes, but also that your resolutionsRead More
You know how sometimes you get text messages from friends that just kind of irritate you? Maybe it’s a hostile “K” or a passive aggressive “:)” or maybe it’s just a “hahah.” And you think, “Hahaha?” That’s not a response. Those aren’t words. Those are sounds. You sent me sounds. How am I supposed to respond to that? Right, so texting has become this enigma of conversation where we laugh, but aren’t actually laughing and send smiles when no smiles are actually occurring and that’s all fine and well becauseRead More
I didn’t delete my Netflix. Why would anyone do that shit? Netflix rocks.  Read More
Rarely would I scroll to the bottom of an article to observe the mindless debauchery that occurs in the comment section. That is, until it was my own. Not too long ago, Thought Catalog published one of my articles, one that received several unwarranted and irrelevant comments. My initial shock wore off almost immediately, as I found them more comical than offensive. Kind of like watching an episode of Southpark, it’s so ridiculous that you can’t help but laugh. My personal favorite came from a commenter who identified himself asRead More

The One Day Detox That Actually Works

I have a little secret trick that works as an excellent detox from the harmful things we fill our minds and bodies with on a daily basis. It works in just one day and instantly makes me feel much better. I feel refreshed, I feel happier and I feel way less stressed and anxious. So what’s my one day detox? I stop using social media. We are all so helplessly and pathetically addicted to social media. I’m not shunning any of you or pointing the finger, I’m standing right there withRead More
So, the New England Patriots Twitter account caused a lot of drama tonight. The Patriots (@Patriots) became the first NFL team with one million Twitter followers this evening, and decided to celebrate this achievement by mentioning everyone who retweeted the below status with their own “custom Patriots jersey.”   We’re saying thanks to @patriots‘ 1million followers w/ custom digital Pats jerseys – RT for yours! #1MillionPatriots pic.twitter.com/u2SfidCb9e — New England Patriots (@Patriots) November 13, 2014   Unfortunately, the Patriots social media people didn’t anticipate that some Twitter users have some…questionable…Twitter handles.Read More

Your News, in List Form: Part 2

A few weeks ago I wrote an article on the prevalence of lists in current internet news media. News, (popular culture aside), it seems, has begun to appear more accessible to readers in this particular format. Why is that? I conducted a brief study, emailing folks a link to two articles discussing marriage in the 21st century. One article was presented in list-form. The other was not. I asked them to tell me which article they’d rather read. The result? 70% of people preferred the article in list-form. When askedRead More
