Things to Leave Behind in 2018
New year, new you. As we begin this new year a lot of us are making “New Year’s Resolutions” while others are remembering all the good times from 2018. But I think that it’s about time we said goodbye to a couple of “2018 things” and make this year even better than the last.
“The Dab” is a trend that was started in 2016 and has not seemed to slow down till very recently. This so-called “dance move” is really more of a gesture and is pretty much completely out of style now. When it first started it was something that was considered cool that professional athletes would do to celebrate, but as most trends do, it quickly became pretty cringy.
One of the biggest things of 2018 was the video game Fortnite. This multi-player battle royale game took the entire world by storm right around the beginning of 2018. Most people expected it to hit its peak a month or two in, but the game kept gaining popularity. This game was okay for a while but has also led to other cringy trends such as kids doing Fortnite dances in public. While Fortnite is very popular it has begun to slow down and we can only hope that it dies sooner rather than later.
Last but not least is YouTube drama. One of the most popular pass times for a teenager is to watch videos on YouTube and this year more than any other has had so much drama between the different You-Tubers and what they are showing to their audiences. Pretty much all of this drama comes from those you-Tubers who aren’t really funny, talented or smart (cough cough Jake Paul). They don’t have any good or funny ideas, so they just do dumb things in an attempt to make people laugh but end up just digging themselves in a hole. So if you do want to watch an entertaining video or subscribe to someone on YouTube, make sure it’s appropriate and something actually worth watching.
