There is nothing worse than trying to chase what's popular. Especially at the cost of losing yourself and your identity.
Let me tell you a little story.
I had a friend in high school, lets call him Bob.
Bob was a super introverted kid, who dressed pretty emo and liked bands such as My Chemical Romance.
Bob wasn't remotely popular at the school but he seemed very comfortable being himself; he dressed and acted authentically. He was quirky, very goofy and happy.
The school year ended, summer happened and after months of not seeing Bob, I saw him on the first day of school and I couldn't believe my eyes.
