In my opinion, this blog post lacks statistical evidence on the ideas of why we buy things. I think statistics would greatly improve his argument and would show the percentage of people that can relate to what we know is true. The points highlighted in this post are strengths because I thin most people could relate to it in some way. I also liked the fact that he uses his own life example of a bigger, more expensive house didn't make him feel happier than the smaller home he was moving to. I especially agree with him when he says "The dollars bring peace, because they eliminate the worry of not having enough of them (Mr. Money Mustache, 2014)". This quote reminded me of a saying by Kanye West that says "having money is not everything, not having it is". Overall, I found this article useful because when I think about it, I tend to be more comfortable when I know that I have money to fall back on. The concept of this post challenges me to save more and spend less
The video that I chose is called Early Bird vs Night Owls made by a Youtube channel called AsapSCIENCE. I liked this video because I think it is very educational as well as entertaining. It also gives us good insight to actions of the brain and how our sleep patterns are influenced by genetics. In my opinion, this is valid for us because as college students, sometimes we don't sleep like we should. The sleep deprivation that our age group has can also have a negative effect on our grades and socialization. It shows similarities and differences between the two and how it impacts us in daily life.
