You see them everywhere: punk hair-cut, loud striped pants, and a Rancid T-Shirt… As if this 13 year old kid even knows who Rancid is.
Weather it be race-car-wanna-be Hondas with huge wings and cheap fiberglass body kits, or mo-hawk, no-gear-wearing, flip-flop, wanna-be bikers… I’ve had it. It’s time to be who you are. And if you don’t like that person, change it up. But don’t try to convince us that you know how to pole vault just because you watched the Olympics once.

Take pride in who you are, stay true to yourself, and be honest with others. Otherwise, you might end up on here.
Am I a poser?
To determine if you might be a poser, take this quick test:
- Do you have multiple personality clothing in your closet? Meaning, does your wardrobe look like it was stolen from the Village People‘s trailer? If you have a leather biker jacket next to your faggy pink Polo, next to a Ramone’s jacket… Check the “I am a poser” box.
- Does your accent, or diction (look it up, jackass) change when with different groups of people? Example: If you speak as if you were on a Tennis court with your parents, but when with friends use the phrases “true that”, “dawg” or “walk it out” excessively, it’s time to accept that you are a poser.
OMG! I’m a poser! What can I do?
Firstly, good work! Admission of guilt is the first step to recovery. Now go into your closet and burn everything you own. Once that’s done. It’s time to decide who it is you want to be. And you’re going to have to stick with it, so take your time. Now you’re ready to become the NEW YOU: The only-one-new-you.
