    Like, comment, subscribe, and obsess.

    1. The only time you ever use your TV is to stream YouTube videos.

    2. You wait impatiently for a new video to appear in your subscription box, exhausting the refresh button in the process.

    3. You spend money you don't have on YouTubers' merch.

    4. And you have childlike excitement when you see another person wearing the same merch as you.

    5. Your daily routine is pretty much: breakfast, YouTube, lunch, YouTube, dinner, YouTube.
