It is perhaps one of the phase every little boy and girl went through on the way to adulthood. It is also a secret longing of most (if not all) well adjusted adults. The simple wish of being that one person everyone would love to know and hate. The topic of coolness was officially considered too shallow to be openly discussed in public or in the chatter of a company of friends in a pink-walled bedroom.
“Hey, I wanna be cool, how do I do this?”
“WHAT? Silly question! There’s no need to be superficial! Be yourself! YOURSELF! That’s what’s truly important!”
Give me a break.
By no means do I support the current state of materialistic and fame-driven society, but I also do not support the idea of “truly being yourself for all that matters”. Perhaps I am too cynical. Perhaps I don’t live in the right neighborhood. Perhaps my parents didn’t teach me to love rainbows and fluorescent unicorns when I grew up. But I do know adapting means adjusting yourself means something has to change.
Some people are just lucky and they’re born with natural talents to mingle and be loved by others, while some others have to keep wearing and changing masks in order to feel accepted. And no folks, this phenomenon is happening at all ages, not just at our tender teenage years (this well-brewed accurate information was obtained after
gossiping heartfelt discussions with my mom about her friends and mine)
So, what do you gotta say about being cool and hip? Important and necessary or downright superficial?
