Truthfully, I am not the type that follows what is trendy, instead I prefer to remain unique by striving to be a catalyst of change in my own life. Notwithstanding that does not really mean I don't partake in the revolution of things sweeping across the world, but that does not mean I excessively and blindly follow everything that is reigning.
From what I have noticed, we have so many people that often go out of their ways, in order for them to keep up with the happenings emanating from every sphere of the world. Unfortunately, this act of "keeping up with the joneses" has not supported their existence profitably, but rather taking toll on every facets on their lives, from finances to health, you just name it.
Personally, I can never go out of my way in trying to live up to the expectations of others simply, because I want to be perceived as as a trendy guy. My philosophy goes as this "I am a trend setter, not a trend follower."
