Here lies my rating system for “Things I Like” (TIL). It’s on a scale of 1-4, keeping in mind that even if something receives a 1, it’s still something I like. Just making it onto TIL is a positive thing!

1: An amusement

Things here are just things I’ve come across and found (mildly) interesting, but aren’t worth remembering. I often forget about these unless I write about it or come across it again. If these things vanished tomorrow, I wouldn’t be too sad.

2: An interest

Topics here are interests of mine; I actively consume new content related to them if they present themselves, though I don’t often seek it out actively. Most of my YouTube subscriptions fall into this category. If these things vanished tomorrow, I’d be perhaps a bit disappointed, but would move on rather quickly.

3: An involvement

Topics here are things in which I take an active involvement. I seek out new and interesting media regarding these topics and try to contribute back to the community if I’m able to. These topics often cross my mind at least once per day if not more. If these things vanished tomorrow, I’d be quite disappointed, but eventually carry on.

4: A life changer

Topics here have changed my life, through either an experience, insight, or lesson. They have been constantly present in my life for extended periods of time (months/years), and I constantly think of them or indirectly am influenced of them on a daily basis. If these things vanished tomorrow, I’d be devastated.
