Motivational Poster of the Week: Coolness

Someone once told me that the popped-collar look was “in” and that it was just a matter of time before the trend hit the Midwest.

That was many years ago and that trend still hasn’t reached South Dakota, but maybe that’s because whoever told me about this trend had no clue what they were talking about in the first place.

“Coolness” is not something that can be measured. The old phrase goes, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” and I think the same can be said about coolness.

So who has the authority to say what’s cool and what isn’t? For many people, whether or not something is deemed cool reflects their personal views.

I personally think it’s cool to have a Mac, but a lot of people would argue that having a Mac puts you in an elitist group, therefore making you snooty.

This week, consider the things that make you cool. You will never please everyone and there will always be someone hating on the things that you enjoy the most. Haters gonna hate, so let them hate and don’t be swayed by the masses.
