This viral website uses celebs to help you study
Struggling to focus when it’s time to study? You might just need the right tool to keep you focused—like pretending you’re studying alongside your fave celebs. Thanks to the website Life At Virtual Spaces, you can work on your homework while streaming videos of pop stars play on your screen, from KPOP groups like BTS and BLACKPINK to sensations like Olivia Rodrigo and Justin Bieber. Recordings of people using the site have already gone viral on TikTok and Instagram Reels, with the site’s creators sharing that they had increased server costs from all the new traffic.
To check out the feature yourself, go to lifeat.io. Under “Shuffle your workspace,” click on the icon with the ticket emoji that says “Celebrity.” You can press the icon again to see what other celebs are on the site. To help stay focused (and meet those study goals), the site also offers a built-in timer set to twenty-five minutes. The timer is based on the Pomodoro technique of working, where after every twenty-five minutes you take a five- or ten-minute break. If you find the idea of watching recordings of celebs while you study a little weird, Life At also has nature scenes, an aesthetically pleasing cafe, and other calming spaces available to tune into.
The #lifeat hashtag already has over *7 million* views on TikTok, and the site’s fanbase only continues to grow as new celebrities and spaces are added. Like the iconic Lo-fi Hip Hop Study Mix, Life At Virtual Spaces gives students something to glance at and listen to as they do their homework. While it might seem like its own distraction—because it definitely can be—keeping your computer on one page can help you resist the urge to scroll social media or surf the web when you should be studying. Who knows? Maybe this site is the missing ingredient that will help you have your best school year yet.
