Like every other person in America, I became a little obsessed with TikTok during the quarantine. My mom and I made a lot of TikTok dinner recipes. The app taught me some fun crafts and life hacks, and presented me with absolutely useless information that I thought was pretty cool. So I took it upon myself to compile some of my favorite things I learned about from TikTok and rate them (on a completely non-mathematical scale).
I love supporting small businesses, and when I found CraftsByNatalieCo, I was obsessed. She makes super cute resin jewelry with plants inside, and all of her pieces are gorgeous! The jewelry I have bought from her shipped really quickly, came in good condition, and I wear the pieces often.
I am not vegan, nor do I cook often, but I love all of Tabitha Brown’s content. She gives off really good vibes, and all of her videos are just wonderful.
Is this practical? No. Is it useless? Probably. Did it entertain me far more than it should have? Absolutely. I don’t quite know what this is for, but my friends and I had a fun time making our own blob operas.
The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
In my experience, TikTok book recommendations are pretty hit or miss, and this was definitely a hit! I could talk about this book for hours, but I’m just going to keep this short and say if you’re looking for a good mystery novel, read it.
You can teach cats to hike.
This is without a doubt my new life goal.
Musical Theatre Workouts
I love musical theatre, and I love Zumba and other dance-style workouts. Yet, it never occurred to me that the two co-existed; thanks to TikTok, I have found some really fun YouTubers who make free musical-theatre dance workouts.
How to make my Google Slides presentations look better.
Generally speaking, I like to keep it simple, but TikTok has taught me a lot of easy ways I can make my PowerPoint presentations look a little nicer.
From musicals I have never even heard of, to aspiring songwriters, awesome playlists, and upcoming music artists, TikTok has given me a plethora of new songs to listen to, and most of them have been bops. There are way too many artists to list all of them, but I definitely recommend trying to find some new music through TikTok.
