Let’s look at the exciting trends that are listed on Pulse for UNC Chapel Hill, and try to read between the lines. Is chilling in the National Parks cool anymore? Is now a good time to buy a boat? We’ll answer these questions and more!

Backpacking is down five places, hiking is down one, and meeting new people is down two. You know what that means: adventuring in the outdoors is, in the words of Hillary Duff, so yesterday!

But, what’s this? Lacross is up three places and sailing is up two places! It’s never been a trendier time for: patrician white people hobbies!

Synergy alert: With DMB and Wedding Crashers holding strong at number one in music and movies and with Jack Johnson clocking in at a strong number three, coupled with the recent upsurge in patrician white people hobbies now is an excellent time to join a stereotypical fraternity or a sorority! It’s the popular thing!

No hablo espanol? Well maybe it’s time to learn! Spanish is up seven places in interests, and A Hundred Years of Solitude is up two and English is on its way out with its greatest work of Hamlet down two, all the way down to sixty-two. And with the number one book remaining the DaVinci Code, it’s hard to disagree: English Literature is dead!

Hope you are loaded up on trends, because that’s all for this week! Next week, we’ll bring you up to speed on all the new hot trends!
