How Pop Culture Affected My Life

We all know that even little things can affect our daily lives greatly. So, it is just safe to assume that the effects of bigger things can be life-altering. For the society as a whole, this “bigger things” can be how we adopt the foreign culture and make it our own. Not only do we change something as an individual, we also jumpstart a change in our beliefs, and in our style. We forego our culture in place of a foreign one that is the current trend. As a result, we sometimes permanently forget our identity that makes our culture unique. 


Pop culture is something that comes as a big deal in the society and so, it follows that this culture doesn’t just affect us mildly. It can change our preferences in a blink of an eye. Personally, I am affected by my love to pop culture. I am a person who always loves to be in the know of what’s and what’s popular at the moment. I always follow the trend and incorporate them into my lifestyle. This applies no just in my music preferences but other things as well such as films, fashion, and books. I admit popular culture can often be attention-grabbing. It would bait you until you are caught. I don’t remember exactly how I got caught in this love for the pop culture but I know I am not the only one who’s engrossed in this thing. Many people love the popular culture and I know it’s taking over the world especially now that younger people tend to be interested in a variety of things that are on trend. I’m not the only one who find many songs or films to be soul-touching. In fact, there are many people young and old who think that the new songs the popular culture has been delivering regularly are the best songs in the market. The admiration for them is so strong that there are blogs and articles that are made for pop culture alone. 


How does this popular culture really affects my daily life? Well, the answer is really easy and I’m sure many people can relate. To be honest, I’m a person who doesn’t really love to interact with many people. You can call me shy type so I tend to be alone most of the time. But then, when I became a fan of many artists that are really popular nowadays, my life seemed to change. A few years ago, I needed to sell my house fast and found a new place to live in. It wasn’t really hard because my parents helped me in looking for trustworthy buyers that can bid for my house immediately. In college, I never really expected that it was the start of my new life. Like I said, I never really interact to many people but then, when my classmates found out that I love pop culture just like them, they approached me and told me if we could be all friends. It surprised me but I think knowing that we all have the same taste in music and films brought us together.  


That was the moment I started going out with my new friends and going to places that cater to our love for music, films, and arts. There was one time, one of us suggested we go to the concert of our favorite artist.  Pop culture affected my life because it gave me an opportunity to make new friends. Just listening to songs is already a life-changing because it doesn’t just affect my mood, it also affects my way of living and of course, my beliefs in life.
