Whenever I was growing up everything seemed to revolve around being cool, for example, having the latest DVD or getting a Mini Disk Player (yes it was several years ago). But now as an adult I really embrace being me, sometimes, arguably, this is uncool because of a lack of influence.
Why is being different a good thing?
As an adult being an individual seems to be more important than being like most other people. Part of this viewpoint might be because adults make individual choices which reflect their interests — themselves. Take the environment you are reading this blog post as an example. Are you reading it in your own home (rented or owned)? Are you in your parents house? Your friends? Regardless of where you are that place is very unique. No one else on this planet will have the exact same things as you. The pictures, choice of carpet/wooden floor, gadgets (or lack of), right down to the choice of where this property is on this planet (is it in a street? At a corner? In a rural area?).
The point I am trying to make is that as adults we do things to suit ourselves. An adult is unlikely to buy a house they dislike. Being different or being uncool is very important because if we were not different we would all have the same house.
Is Lady GaGa cool or uncool?
Almost everyone on this amazing planet will know who Lady GaGa is. No matter what we think of Lady GaGa, as being cool or uncool, one things is certain — she embraces being unique. Be yourself too. Being you is cool.
