Hey diary,
Since you can’t tell me what ‘Trend’ is about, then I have to gist you properly on this topic. Twitter seems to own the word ‘Trend’ as hash tags make news and information at a particular time spread throughout the world at a click. Well, trend is just a port on the twitter platform. Trend means the popular taste (fashion, business, politics etc) at a given time; a general tendency or direction. Trend is a basic word in the fashion world which means vogue/style. It is what people do or talk about at a particular time. Diary, if you must achieve a goal this year, then make us trend.
I have an old picture of my maternal grandfather in my album. Whenever I look at it, I smile. His trousers were so big that he could hide his partner in case a fight breaks out in the club. This was a particular trend in fashion in the 70s & 80s. This style caught the attention of our great grandmothers but won’t do any magic now. These days, skin tight trousers that need the help of another hand in pulling off are in vogue. Another trend in the fashion world is that of crazy jeans, torn tops (Kanye West’s Yeezy; a trend setter), lacerated outfits or whatever the name given to them. Years ago, clothes like these are made for the waste bin and incinerators. Nigeria is on the world map when it comes to entertainment. Our dance steps have been trendy from time to time. Shoki, Shaku-Shaku, Zanku etc. at one point in time have got people moving in their direction. Trends belong majorly to the youths but the oldies these days can’t but be on top of their game too.
Trend is one of the keyword in this age. You just have to be a trendsetter or a trend follower.  As the world revolves, so you have to revolve with it or else, the world would ground you. You have to be in vogue and stay at the top of your game. Those who have achieved greater things in this life are trendsetters; those with ideas rule the world. If you cannot be a trendsetter then you be a follower to be trendy. If you can’t beat them, join them so they say. You just have to be updated and get more knowledge of your world. Diary, won’t you help us trend? It has been a great time with you here. Till next time, remain trendy. Adios
