Trends we will regret

We’re all guilty of at least one.

Every decade, we’re facing with the joys and horrors of trends. Sure, they’re cool now, but in 20 years you’ll probably be laughing at how ridiculous you looked.

The 1970s welcomed paisley corduroy and pale yellow wallpaper. In the ’80s we had neon leg warmers and big hair. In the ’90s we regrettably listened to boy bands while playing POGs, and today we’re dealing with equally horrifying trends.

Quite a cultural exchange: where are American cultural events?

We know America as “the melting pot,” where people from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds come together as one. I was born here, so I naturally relate to American culture in ways that other people who moved here from other countries probably don’t.

I was born in Georgia and grew up in a small Florida town consisting of predominately white people. It wasn’t a racist area, but definitely a place with very little diversity. Upon moving to a larger city while in high school, I was amazed by the diversity of the people that surrounded me. I was even more amazed by people’s pride in their respective cultures.

One piece of culture that I became especially engrossed in was the Asian tea culture. Having been a fan of Southern sweet tea for years, the tea culture was not only delicious, but also engrossing. The fact that many countries in Asia have festivals surrounding tea (because it’s a part of their daily lives) is so fascinatingly foreign to me.

What would the American equivalent of tea be? Coffee? I think it’s safe to say that America doesn’t have anything like this, something so deeply rooted in our culture, and I think it’s sad. Here, we don’t have many traditions to unify us all other than a lack of tradition. But is that enough?
