2017 brought the world some mixed emotions: people have powerful feelings about if 2017 was actually a good year or not. Despite the good things that happened in 2017 (like April the giraffe having her baby) the year still help some ridiculous social trends.
- Rainbow and Unicorn EVERYTHING
I don’t know how many times I scrolled through Instagram’s discover page and saw rainbow doughnuts and bagels or Starbuck’s Unicorn Frappuccino. Do you know what is one of those? According to Starbucks, it is: ice, milk, crème, whipped cream, mango syrup, blue drizzle, and blue and pink powder. I know its pink Starbucks but what is it?!
- Pokemon GO
This craze did eventually die down but with Harry Potter Go officially in the works I have a feeling a similar fad will take over, and with much more gusto.
- Facebook Stories
I let it slide when Instagram decided they needed to have stories but I am still very angry about Facebook stories, and I will never let it go.
- Salt Bae
Remember him? That guy who got ridiculously famous for sprinkling salt on his steak? He has over 20 million followers on Instagram now. Sometimes I wonder why I’m even in college because eventually, I am going to do something that I will become famous for.
- Cash Me Outside
We all made her famous, and we should feel horrible about that
- That Blinking Guy
He’s just blinking…
- The Apple Glitch
Remember when we couldn’t type the letter “I” for a few days, and the world lost their mind
- Male Rompers
As a female, I don’t even like wearing rompers. Going to the bathroom in them is just awful. We should just ban them all together.
- Fidget Spinners
I know they have some benefits to them and they are super addicting, but they are bothersome, and now no one cares about them.
- Eating Tide Pods
Natural selection… do your thing
