“New year, new me,” is phrase often used on the first day of the new year to celebrate a new start.
Whether it is a healthier meal plan, a flatter stomach, or even a brand new hairstyle, everyone is ambitious to make their upcoming 365 days extraordinary.
Although it’s always great to be self-motivated and determined to change as an individual, we should also think about ways to change as a society.
What trend will we participate in this year? Which trends will we help eliminate?
2015 was filled with crazy, weird trends that although were very entertaining, also ridicule our generation.
, are an example of this. When did walking become such a fatigue for people?
It’s to the point where it is essential to purchase a $400 walking replacement machine. Not only is it extremely pricey, but dangerous as well.
“There should be a law that bans them from public, since they have caused many injuries due to malfunctioning defects such as explosions. Hoverboards should not continue to be a trend,” said CSUSB student Raylene Perez.
CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales also stated it is a danger to our campus.
An e-mail was sent to all staff and students.
“The safety of our faculty, must always be our highest priority CSUSB will suspend any use of hoverboards on campus,” stated the e-mail.
Don’t join the hoverboard epidemic. It’s so last year.
Drake’s hot hit “Hotline Bling” had 41,000 copies sold in its first week, according to US Billboard Hot 100.
While having a very catchy beat and ring to it, it was over-played within the first week it came out.
“That song encouraged me to wear less and go out more,” said CSUSB student Fernanda Jaramillo, jokingly.
“It was a really great song to jam to at first but then everyone over played it and it would give me a massive headache when it would come out on the radio. We definitely need to leave that hotline bling trend in 2015,” continued Jaramillo.
Kanye West is another artist who made the news last year, not because of his singing career, but because of his hideously overpriced clothing line.
“Yeezy” is a clothing line designed by West. It seems as if he got his inspiration from a homeless person who got hit by a train.
The colors are very dull and plain, the shirts are long enough to be worn as a night gown, and there are probably more holes on them than fabric. On top of all of that the price for this horrendous line is ridiculous.
“I can sit here and criticize his clothing line all I want, but one shirt would probably cover a whole quarter worth of my tuition,” said CSUSB student Cesar Vazquez.
A simple navy blue sweater, badly knitted, and full of holes is worth $2,307 in store, definitely surpassing a regular college student’s budget.
The clothing is very expensive; therefore, it’s mostly famous people, such as Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift, who wear it.
This isn’t a good thing, considering that most fashion trends are brought out by our famous idols.
Let’s make this year’s fashion statements brighter, better, and cheaper.
Every day is a brand new start. Even though we are almost one month into 2016, let’s start fresh and leave these old trends behind.
