Is your life boring? Take a look at these 10 awesome life hacks that will make your life much more interesting.  Happy “Hacking”!

  1. Wikipedia

We all know that once we entered high school, all our teachers started telling us NOT to use Wikipedia because it is an unreliable source and may sometimes carry irrelevant information, but if you are feeling brave, use this Wikipedia life hack which will eliminate all the irrelevant information on the page. All you have to do is replace the “en” in the Wikipedia link with “simple” to strip away the complex and mostly irrelevant information on the page. That way, you will have the basic and most important information right in front of you, instead of having to spend time searching for it by scrolling down.

  1. YouTube Repeat

Have you ever started listening to a song or video on YouTube and wanted to watch or listen to it on repeat endlessly without constantly pressing the replay button every time the video ends? All you have to do is add repeat after YouTube to the YouTube video URL that you are watching. An example would be if your video link was  https://www.youtube.com/watch123, the url after you add the repeat should look like https://www.youtuberepeat.com/watch123.

  1. Save Money On Pizza

Whenever you order pizza, always order Papa John’s Pizza online. The code 25OFF works every time for 25% of your order! That way you can eat pizza the right way (which is the cheap way).

  1. Studying

Studying for 30-50 minutes at a time with 10 minute breaks in between is the most effective way to retain information. Also, the best way to make sure you know that you have learned the concept is to teach it to a friend, and let him/her ask you questions. If you can explain it well then you understand the concept

  1. YouTube Video

Here’s another YouTube hack for those of you who are hard core internet comment war fighters. All you have to do for this one is add “gif” before the word “YouTube” in the URL and then you can make your very own gif! That way you can make your own viral video gifs of people falling to express your comment in gif form.

  1. Music

Go to the website cmd.fm. It allows you to listen to any genre of music with unlimited skips!

Also, another hack to get free music without doing something shady on the internet is to use this safe and legal way to listen to free music.

All you have to do is find the music video to whatever song you want to listen to on YouTube, and copy and paste the URL into https://www.youtube-mp3.org/. Then add it into your iTunes library and sync it.
