Don’t feel the need to keep up with pop-culture
I sometimes hear people saying they feel like they need to keep up with pop-culture to avoid feeling left out.
There’s absolutely no need for this.
Your time is precious and should only spend it on activities you enjoy.
So what do you do when someone asks you if you watched X – episode of Y show, or Z – movie?
You say: “No, tell me about it”.
If you want go a step further you can also share what you are into.
But be careful not to come across as someone who is trying too hard to be different.
Just keep it low-key and nonchalant.
