during the last 4 years especially, people actually applying to a certain category was generally unheard of. For example goths
were just a group of people that would only ever appear in an american movie. The sudden movement of being 'individual' became a necesity. Categories in which no1 lied opened and became one big trend. The people who DIDNT change their ways of life, music or clothes were labelled trendies, ironically so, considering the term trendy has the meaning of being a follower of trends.Although by NOT followin the trends of suddenly becoming a mosher
, for example - the remaining group of people who are 'followers of trends' have become vastly outnumbered. Hence making the so-called 'trendies' the alternatives of our society. Go figure.
damned if you do, damned if you dont.
