During this time of sustained social isolation we’ve been turning to YouTube more than usual.
We’ve always enjoyed a good (usually educational) video on YouTube but now without the ability to really do much outside the house we’ve definitely increased our YouTube consumption.
I don’t really feel too bad because 1) these are weird times we are living in and 2) most of the videos are educational (and a few of them are just watching people make giant candy, which is educational in its own way).
I thought I would go through our YouTube watch history and share some of the videos we’ve been watching lately in case you are looking for some good videos to watch.
If you have some good videos or channels to share, I would love for you to leave a comment below so we can check them out!
