Unless you’ve been living under a rock, earlier this year we were introduced to the term cheugy. If you aren’t familiar with the term, it refers to someone who is out of date or trying too hard. It’s mainly a term Gen Zers uses to describe Millennials, i.e. the new way to say basic. And the chess match continues.

To some, there is a negative connotation to cheugy. Why? Because it’s wooden, “live, laugh, love” signs, it’s skinny jeans, it’s Disney adults – basically it’s an attempt to call Millennials Boomers without actually calling them Boomers. By I digress because I’m self aware. Hell yes I’m cheugy! And damn proud of it. But what do you expect from me – I’m in my mid-30s, grew up when Rhianna was still on the music charts and iPods were still around. I lived in a time where bubble necklaces, peplum tops, and neon were all trending at the same time. I HAVE a reason to be cheugy.

But I’m here to embrace my inner cheugy-ness. Apparently denim jackets are cheugy which weird because their a classic, so? And graphic tees?! Like how are they cheugy, they’re a vibe and I will never not rock my graphic tees. Fans of both The Office and Friends are cheug-tastic too. And don’t even get me started with the side part versus middle part debate!? I like to rock both, however, I’m a middle part lover through and through. And always will be.
