I’m sure you’ve come across some of these “GIFs” on your friend’s facebook pages. They all hail from the latest internet sensation: What Should We Call Me. You may have even come across some spin-offs of this blog, such as “Adventures in Fratland”, or “What My Biffles Call Me.” What Should We Call Me takes real life situations, reactions to situations, and makes them somehow apply to these hilarious images and “GIFs”. My entire newsfeed is covered with them.

I can, unfortunately, waste a good amount of time looking through page by page. I’ve even caught myself actually laughing out loud at some of them because of how closely similar they represent some things I’ve gone through, or situations my friends have found themselves in. The above picture is a quick scene from “The Hills”. I’m sure you’re all familiar with it. And if you’re not, good for you. Anyway, the caption for this ‘scene’ is “When I actually look at a guy’s feet.” Let’s be honest guys, you don’t always have the cleanest looking feet in the world, and you’ve officially been called out by ‘whatshouldwecallme’.

Just when I thought I was not going to be able to experience anything special during my senior year, I received a surprising email that I had been accepted to the Teen Vogue Fashion University program. It was something that I first saw on Facebook on the sidebar where all the advertisements are featured. I clicked on it, thinking it might be a very fun and amazing opportunity for me since I love fashion. Then I find out that the blogging internship I work for is also affiliated with the program and was encouraging all of us to apply.

I was shocked when I got my acceptance letter because, honestly, I just applied for fun. It is an extremely huge event and the application was open to anyone around the world. There are so many more fashionable, talented and dedicated people out there, so I definitely did not think this was a chance I would get. I was so nervous the day before my trip to New York City for the program because while I was packing, all I kept thinking was, “How I am supposed to bring my A-game with the clothes I have now? Everyone there is going to be so flawless and glamorous.”

Glued to the screen watching chaos ensue

 

It started with Jessica. Next was Ashlee. Then Kristin, Lauren, Whitney. Throw a little Britney and Kev into the mix and you had the sad uphill climb of television’s greatest trainwreck that America just could not. stop. watching: reality shows.

As the small screen’s lowest common denominator in terms of quality and creative thought, it’s easy for networks to pump out these shows in bulk and even easier for us to get totally and inexplicably sucked into them. But the most expensive, elaborate, deceptive yet mind-blowingly addictive reality show in history wasn’t just a mid-season replacement – it was a lifetime endeavor. Welcome to “The Truman Show.”
