I feel like I’m so out of touch with the current trends sometimes. I’m usually so up to date, even if I don’t follow them, I at least know about them. Or I guess I know about them but I don’t understand them. Maybe I’m looking for meaning in things that don’t really have any but I just don’t understand some of the current ‘cool’ things. Two in particular seem to have appeared out of no where and I just don’t understand them. Where did they originate from and why are they so popular?
The first one is the mustache trend. I just don’t get it. It started overnight and then exploded into everything. There’s mustache clothing, mustache accessories, mustache home decor…it’s become a mustache meme.
*UPDATE 5/13/12* I Figured out where the mustache’s came from!
Another trend that I’ve seen on Pinterest is the “keep calm” posters. I just don’t understand where they came from or why they’re everywhere.
I just don’t get it. Did I miss the memo on why these are around? Or am I just getting old? I don’t feel like I’m getting old but maybe I’m too boring (if that’s the case, don’t tell me-haha)…If anyone can explain it to me I’d love to know where these originated from!
