I knew I wasn't alone! According to Pew research, it looks like the number one reason people use Youtube is to learn new things. I spend more time than I care to admit on Youtube, but I'm not just watching cat videos, I'm learning how to do things like forging, woodwork, electronics, guitar, etc.
To be fair, I don't actually own a lot of the tools I need to apply what I've "learned", so I suppose it's more like I'm watching people work, but that doesn't sound as cool, so I'll stick to my story that I'm learning things.
Two things I actually do apply are guitar and cooking. I'm not a great guitar player, but I have certainly come a long way since I first started learning to play back in 2011. If you're a student of Youtube U, feel free to leave a comment to give a shout out to your favorite Youtube teacher.
