There are many bad trends that started…trending in 2011. Here are ten I think we’ve seen ENOUGH of:
Google came out with a Facebook knock off that none of us know whether to embrace or ignore. I’m voting ignore…my brain cannot learn another social media platform.
2.) Woot and Squee.
And other words that are ONLY typed online, but never actually said in real life. Unless, you happen to be publishing a book or receiving Oprah’s favorite things.
Oh my boring. I don’t care who’s playing and I don’t care who’s winning or losing. The trend of tweeting and Facebook updating your love or hate for your football teams while I happen to be online definitely needs to go OUT.
What happened in 2011 that made Zombies the THING to talk about? I don’t know if there was a show or a book I missed…some kind of memo that went out, but Zombies are not real. Neither are vampires. There is no apocalypse. It was a music video called Thriller and 1983 wants it back.
5.) Leg Warmers
They went out for a reason ladies. Leg warmers don’t keep your legs warm…pants do. Let’s just keep wearing pants shall we?
6.) DIY Birthday Parties and Crafts
Duuuude…I cannot make this stuff no matter HOW easy you make it look. Just post your pretty products and let me buy them the old school way. Your tutorials and printables are not working for me.
7.) Tequila Shots At 9am
Okay this is a personal one that I just really need to tone down.
Owls are super cute and have been all the rage in 2011. You can find them on bags, mugs, blankets, websites…they’re everywhere. But have you ever really LOOKED at one of these creepy ass birds? Whoooo do you think you’re kidding? Get those things outta here.
9.) Children Who Cry
I really saw this peak around March of 2011 and I’d like to see it taper off here in 2012. Any day now. Seriously. Like right now. STOP IT!
10.) Life Affirmations
Yeah yeah yeah…gag me.
