2007 seemed to be a pretty tame year for fashion trends. We finally got away from the frosted tip nightmare that was the early 2000's. Overall, it seemed like we were trending to more casual, comfortable wear. No way that could go wrong.
Then, that trend went too far. There's comfortable, then there's wearing your pajama shirt out in public. Fashion tip: a funny T-shirt is not a substitute for a personality. This isn't even nearly as bad as some of the crazy fashion trends that have recently been popping up.
Maybe I shouldn't have been so optimistic. That's a mistake I'll never make again, and I have these sandals to thank for my new, bleak worldview. What is going on here? Who thought this was a good idea? The fact people buy these actually proves it is a good idea, making this a planet I'm not sure I want to live on anymore.
Our selfie game back in 2007 wasn't especially strong. It consisted mostly of out of focus shots taken in mirrors on cameras.
I know, right? People a decade ago took pictures on cameras instead of their phones. Weird. Don't even get me started on what Myspace was. I'm still not ready to start discussing where we all went so wrong as a society.
Of course, our selfie game these days is. On. Point. We're reinventing the game every single day. Unfortunately, this means oftentimes things go too far. Not surprising ever since I lost any sense of optimism.
Not today, however. Thanks to the bajillion tutorials you can find on YouTube, now everyone's applying their makeup in any manner you can imagine. See that pic? If you're wondering why she's applying makeup with a condom, grab a seat and join the party, because none of us have a clue either. Just because something can be done doesn't mean it should.
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair wasn't terribly popular. He let George W. Bush talk him into joining the war in Iraq, though he had hard feelings over it. It has been considered a historic blunder. Surely, Britain wouldn't make another giant mistake... right?
As society grew and evolved, so did our needs. We became busier and busier, and began enjoying meals that were easy on-the-go. Burger King helped us out with this. However, we also became more health conscious since then. What did that lead us to?
This. It lead us to this. We have evolved so far we're actually moving backwards. We are eating grass and considering it a meal because there's Ranch dressing, while considering pasta bagels a snack. Considering this forward and backward movement, maybe time is a construct after all.
