Popular culture can be defined as well-liked media, made by the people, for the people, and anything ‘leftover’ from the high-class culture such as classical music or theatre

Cultural proximity is the theory that claims people have “…the tendency to prefer media from one’s own culture or the most similar possible culture.” (Straubhaar, 2003, p. 85). This would explain why Australians such as myself engage with Netflix, which streams predominantly Western media. The popularity is explained by how closely our cultures are linked. It makes sense that America has such a large impact on Australia, both our cultures are western and have similar values, and our government tends to follow the decisions of America. Alas, the term ‘Americanisation’ could be used.

I actually already opened it — as you can see I’ve finished a few bottles, because I was so excited to try them.

I personally don’t think the hype would be as huge if it weren’t for social media

Starbucks doesn’t just sell coffee, they sell the brand name. People like well known brands and brand named items. Starbucks definitely became a huge competitor and that’s because they did something and everyone copied, yet they get more publicity with everyone coming up with new drinks and rating them in videos and so on. Social media makes the biggest difference. Like I’ve said before, you either make something new or do the same thing as everyone else but better. I’m not planning on making a business even though I’ve had some intrusive thoughts about it late at night, but I do know that the direction I’m going in my career is going to still include social media to some degree. Almost everything does now. You can’t be a company and not have a website. You can’t sell your products without getting your name out there. I know that I would like to get into designing or printing and either one of those directions will at some point lead to advertising and/or marketing. Which again, you will definitely need to be online for. It may seem repetitive or redundant but the times are changing and a lot of the older generation isn’t keeping up or wanting the change. I’ve noticed that even in the jobs I have had. I’ve been in retail mostly and just the ApplePay or chip readers have surprised them and they don’t want to learn how to use it. Or just being able to solve a quick problem with the touch of a button on their phone but they refuse to do so. Yes, they didn’t grow up with it and it may be confusing but everyone has to be open to new things and learning. That’s how people stay up to date and successful. Just at least knowing what’s going on and the basics helps greatly. I am always open to learning new things and I think that’ll definitely help me with my career choice. That’s what I enjoy most; the always changing and never ending of it all. You never lose interest and there’s always more coming to look forward to. So, yeah I’m not in the job I would like to be but I still see the media all around.

Younger kids often don’t have a filter yet and are very honest in their opinions

Speaking up is a very scary thing to do, especially when you’re going against the norms or the only one speaking up. But I’ve also learned this year that sometimes in situations by not speaking up at all, your silence can speak numbers and it can seem you agree with something that is wrong. And sometimes you will have to speak up and stand up. In the TED talk by Cathrine Sandland, she does a really amazing job explaining why we need to speak up when things are too important to stay silent. I like to believe I’m slowly gaining confidence in my voice and speaking up when it matters most to me and others.
