Five Steps To Fitting In

With all of the up and coming trends, how can you be sure what you're doing is "in"?

Five Steps To Fitting In

There are so many trends that appear pretty much out of thin air. Sometimes I wonder who the influential force was that brought us all to become addicted to social media, or who decided we were bringing back fashion statements from when our parents were our age (not knocking it, you can count on me to sport the mom jeans). It seems that there are people who are always buzzing about the latest trends, but how are they always in the know? As someone who rarely leaves the safety of my room (it's where my pets are!), it is hard to always be aware of the latest and greatest. I've devised a list to give you tips on how you can be sure to always be in the know!

1. Talk to people.

Making friends is the best way to be in the know. With so many different world views, it's hard to not hear all of the latest gossip.

2. Frequently go on social media platforms.

This kind of goes back to #1. If you make friends, you can follow them on their social media accounts and then you pretty much get a play-by-play of their life. That's sometimes cool, sometimes a little overwhelming.

3. Stay in style.

This could mean pretty much anything you want it to mean, except for me telling you that you need to dress and act how everyone else does. By staying true to yourself, you should only express your style. For me, that includes pink hair, scrunchies, and everyone's favorite: MOM JEANS.

I don't' think I can stress enough how comfortable mom jeans are.

4. Be cool.

There's always that one person in the group that doesn't act cool and kind of throws off the whole vibe, don't be that person. It's not fun to hang out with people who don't like who you are! If anyone ever tells you that you are "too much for them" or makes you feel that you are anything less than perfect, you DON'T need them in your life. If they don't want you around, someone else will! Pull up a seat, let's binge watch Lucifer.

5. Overall, just be you.

If you couldn't tell already, there is nothing wrong with who you are. You just need to find your crowd. There are no exact tips or tricks to fit in with the majority, and honestly, I find it a lot more fun to be myself and not worry about what the majority thinks.

"New Girl" is one of the best sitcoms of all time. Honestly, it is so much fun to watch, so much fun to relate to, just all around a great show.
