181: Is It Now Cool To Be Boring?

What’s the latest “it-girl” aesthetic? It’s boring. No, seriously, being boring might just have become the new cool and the ultimate marker of success. If you can live a life that looks both boring and successful then you truly have it sussed. After a chaotic few years we’ve come to realise that really the most successful people out there are the ones with seemingly boring, normal lives. Why? Well that’s what we’re going to discuss in this week’s episode. Whether it’s the fascination we have with “dull” celebrities like Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen or just seeing normal people romanticise the mundane, there’s a lot to be sed for embracing the boring aspects of everyday life.
