R.I.P 2013

2013, what should we say about it? So many things happened. So, I decided to recap on everything that happened.

For one thing, we started the year off with the song Thrift Shop and the video of a girl eating her tampon went viral on the Internet. Keeping it classy, America. But since those two things, the YouTube world has exploded and the music industry even more.

      Music they played on the radio over and over again included That Power, We Can't Stop, Wrecking Ball, Mirrors, Get Lucky, Best Song Ever, Counting Stars, Holy Grail, and who can forget Blurred Lines. In my opinion, the radio stations need to vary their songs a bit because I swear they played these songs on every station. It was like when I'm Sexy and I Know It was on the radio, they played it countless times.

       This was also the year of youtubers. It seems everyone wants to be a youtuber now, including myself. But it so happens many youtubers became very famous this year, they are working as producers, interviewers, and have their own lines of makeup and clothing. There was even tours for people to meet these youtubers.

      Social Media was a huge thing of 2013. Facebook is still popular but their are quite a few other social media networks now. Many of them, I am quite fond of like Vine, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, Wattpad, and Tumblr. I didn't like Pinterest, but many people love it so I don't have anything bad to say about it. A social media network I did not like at all was, which basically lets people send questions to you anonymously. should stay in 2013, in my opinion because nothing but bullying can come from giving people the chance to spread their opinion anonymously.

        Trends that happened this year were combat boots (Doc Martens, Steve Madden, etc..), high waisted jeans and shorts, crop tops, jordans sneakers (I believe that's what they are called), skinny jeans both on guys and girls, and scarves. More boys who can pull off beanies, headscarves, and fedoras followed the steps of Harry Styles. Girls, I noticed wore more rings, and got more earrings in, like third, fourth, and cartilage piercings.

         A memorable moment this year was the VMAs, which I almost went too but I didn't. Boy, did i miss out because it was only a few miles away from me. Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke's performance still gets talked about. Also a rising star of 2013 was Jennifer Lawrence, I absolutely think she is an amazing role model and actress.

        Also, you guys should check out this band on Youtube. They are called Five Seconds of Summer,  I got to see them on June 29th, 2013. They have their first album coming out this year and I am a huge fan of them. There are four members named Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings, and Michael Clifford. You should check them out!
