Is it a trend? Is it the latest fashion on how things should be made? What are tutorials? You probably heard about them, you probably even used them, but never thought of them as such.

Exaggerating of course, we could say even a food recipe is a tutorial. In common language a tutorial is something that teaches you how to do something, explaining all the steps of the process to you. In educational terms, a tutorial is a class made up of few students, in which a professor provides individual attention and information to them.

You must remember at school all those get together with other colleagues in which were you supposed to learn all sorts of things? Yes, that are tutorials. They can be groups from one or up to 20 students that supplement the information provided in class with the purpose of obtaining better information about something.

But lets be serious, nowadays this kind of tutorials are rather out of fashion. Since we all live in the internet and communication age, we can easily talk about a new kind of tutorials. Yes, the internet ones. They are documents or softwares, or any other media created for instructional purposes for a variety of tasks.

Tutorials have the next characteristics:

  1. They are a presentation of the content of something, usually containing one or more examples, divided into sections, chapters and sub chapters to confirm a better understanding and organization of the content.
  2. We can say they are methods of reviewing. They have the purpose of reinforcing or facilitating the understanding of the content in a specific section.
  3. Next we can state that they are a transition to other modules and they are build on the instructions and information already provided.

It is important to know that not all tutorials are the same. They can organize information in different ways. Either linear or branched.

Now let us jump to computer education. In this field, a tutorial is a program made with the purpose of assisting users in the process of learning how to a software product or other applications, operating the system interface, learning how to use the programming tools or how to play a game. Yes, there are tutorials on games to, teaching you how to play. They are small peaces of the game in which someone tells you how to move, fight, drive or do whatever the game is about.

We can divide them into two kinds of tutorials: movie tutorials and interactive tutorials.the first are the tutorials you just watch and the second are those where you fallow instructions that appear on screen.

Now I bet you know what tutorials are, no?

    Hi Meg. Your videos have really helped me come to terms with the bright side of healthy eating habits and the power of opposite actions. However recently I was diagnosed with stomach issues and the treatment required includes reducing variety and amount of food I consume and therefore I am concerned that i could spiral back into unhealthy habits. Have you ever had this happen or any helpful tips? Love you and your videos. xxx

    I swear it's like you've gone into my head and are explaining every thought I have, it's insane. And because you're so accurate, it's helping me so much! Thank you. And have fun on your honeymoon! Even though I just said that over an insta dm, thought I'd say it again haha. xx

    P.s: I wish we (everyone here in the comments) could have like a group or something where we could talk! You all sound lovely and seem like supportive people x

  • LifeCoachMe August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    100% relate to this. You have not 'glamourised' recovery you have helped me prepare for whats to come, reassure me that what i am feeling, thinking and going through is normal. YOU have motivated me. So thank you Meg and congratulations. You truly are wonderful and making a POSITIVE and HONEST difference. <3 xxx

    Always so relatable. We need to keep remember this with every choice we make. How much more will we allow ourselves to miss out on? This life has never got us anywhere. Time with family and friends making new memories is everything, we just need to override it all to get there xx

  • Erin Bond August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    What do you do as a job? I think you'd be a really great teacher!

  • Allie Carter August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    I am 2 years out of college and just now starting to develop deeper relationship with the friends I made when I was spiraling into anorexia. It is so wonderful to be connecting with them now, but I am so sad that I missed out on this years earlier!

  • Ilene O August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Right, it is not too late…💛 Thank you for so much truth💛

  • AnneFleurrrr August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    My brother is overriding me too… he has party’s and going out with friends and drink. And I’m just always home thinking about food. I also never enjoy being with friends anymore because I just only care and think about food… I hate it…

  • Laura Robertson August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Totally relate to this topic. I have no friends, they always left me because I was bullied. So I’ve never had the confidence to make new friends plus anorexia has always told me I’m not good enough to have friends that I deserve loneliness! Plus I haven’t seen my family (except parents) in over 5 years. Too afraid of food, not exercising, them judging what/how I eat and the way I look ie ill. Great video and so happy for you with your wedding.

  • Dorothy Irwin August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    I totally have the same thoughts you do. When i eat out or go to someone’s place , I can’t always focus on what’s going on, especially if it’s a scary food to me, and instead focus on how I’m going make up for it later.I’m trying to fight this more, but is so hard. I’ve also missed so much in my life, especially when I was in high school and college. It is laid me back in life, and I just hate it. You’re stuff always resonates with me and helps so much! I hope you have an amazing wedding!

  • Caitlin Amy August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    I can relate so much to this! Thank you so much for your videos, they are helping me so much throughout my journey <3

  • Kelsey Othling August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    I relate so much to this. Everyday is the same day and I feel like I’m watching a movie of everyone else’s lives and I seem to judge them too for living so “out of routine” and ED is like my only “friend”

  • Kim Lau August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Years of ED has cost me my social life. While all my childhood/college 'friends' are thriving with family and great careers, I'm still single, living with my mother and working at a mediocre job. It's so sad I'm still consumed by this illness and I'm even afraid to travel just because I can't workout! I want to challenge myself to travel to Europe by end of this year…I'm afraid I might get anxiety when my routine is 'broken' and my entire digestive system will go haywire. Trying to find strength…

  • Rose Taylor-Cohen August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    I love you Meg. You truly keep me going most of the time. Thank you for this honest and ballsy video ❤ Can always count on you for keeping things real ❤

  • Stephanie Everingham August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    YAsss I love your videos! this video explains exactly how I feel. I want to recover to stop missing out on so much. you are so inspiring, stay strong xoxox. I also have a recovery channel I would love for you to check out. It's nowhere near as amzing as yours but I was hoping for you to give me some tips, or just tips in general on how to recover. xoxoxo <3

  • Rachel Huillet August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Oh my goodness I love you. You are such a light and I hope your wedding is beautiful. I was wondering what your process of deciding on recovery. Was it just an overnight thing where the non Ed part of you wanted out or something else? Any insight would be great.

  • Ella August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Sadly very very relatable. Found this so emotional to watch. thankyou lovely.xx

  • Susie Wright August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Thank you for being so honest and highlighting the life-sapping nature of the illness. 'You never look back on a missed calorie with fondness': I might make that my mantra!
    You're helping me believe recovery is possible- thank you!

  • Brooke Gutsmiedl August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    100% relate! I feel like this is me talking! So crazy -my mom and I were discussing this yesterday!

  • Mo Di August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Not too negative or intense at all! It IS a very important topic and I also think this can motivate us big time to recover! We are missing out on so many things. What I do think is hard, is after being isolated for a long time to get back in the 'real world'. I feel a bit vulnerable being around people again. Perhaps it's because of having unlearned how to socialize after this ED isolation? And when you are kind of a shy and perfectionistic person, the ED was always a good way to escape social situations. But in the long run it only makes you miserable, so definitely worth relearning how to participate in life again! Do you recognize this, that you have to relearn how to be social again?

  • Sibel Bütün August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    So true… Thank you for your video ! Anorexia is evil..

  • Amy McLellan August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Love you Megs

  • jojo joojo August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    I really struggle with coming out of isolation as once I’ve gained weight through recovery I feel so embarrassed in my body. Does anyone else struggle with this???

  • Michaela Králiková August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Have you ever had extreme hunger ? How did you respond ?

  • Michaela Králiková August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    I would Love if you could tell us if and how you dealt with bloating. THANK you

  • S Juno August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Great video. Isolation is such a huge part of this illness. For me, I kind of use it as a protective thing – like 'i am much safer shut off from the world so that I can't get hurt anymore', all the while I hurt myself so much that I am anything but safe. It's like one of those crazy mirror houses

  • Janice Gladstone August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    I had a session with my therapist and psychiatrist with my fiance this week and discovered my worst fear that he knows I make myself sick. Massive relief but annoyed and the same time?! Scared to habe it taken away but so want out of it at the same time!!!

  • Nadine de Wit August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    This is all SO true… I constently get a thought like: you'd be happy if you get super skinny again, but then when i look back at that time I was not happy but rather isolated and miserable indeed.

  • rita conte August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Meg♥️sy you are part of our world 🌎 your never alone! You WILL win this battle Meg, you are just too precious…. You have the right tools & are so bright… So brilliantly said!!

  • sen August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Thank you for being so brave and being SO real with regards to recovery from ED. It is so different compared to other channels where they simply just show the positive sides of recovery but avoided the struggles that come with it. I could totally relate and I always feel bad about missing out on outings with my family/friends. It is such a shitty feeling but THIS vlog really made me realise how important it is to hang out with them and that I should change my mindset so I can entirely get myself out of my ED. Thank you so much.

  • amysjourney August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Your videos are helping me so much, honestly. You are so strong and are showing me why I am in recovery every day. It's pretty hard right now because gaining weight, bloating blabla is pretty bad right now but I KNOW I have to. Thank you so much! 💕

  • Jane Johnston August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    I can relate to this on so many levels. Thank you for explaining it all so eloquently! You have a real talent for speaking so naturally and thoughtfully on such a complicated subject. Anorexia is such a piece of shit huh haha

    P.s. Particularly loved the bit where you reminded us that "its not too late" XX

  • Hanna August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    Your videos are sooo important to me! They really help me focusing on the good parts and fight against the voice in my head. Thank you❤️

  • Maddie davies August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm

  • Madison Killer August 2, 2018 at 10:53 pm
