Overwatch was huge in the 2016/2017 school year but was almost immediately replaced by Fortnite in late 2017. Also, The Hunger Games was definitely more of a 2012/2013 thing than 2011/2012 since the most popular movies of the franchise were released in 2012 and 2013.

After 2013/2014 I became out of touch with teen culture, understandable since I entered college and the Zoomer teen culture was starting to take hold.

When I was a middle schooler from 2012-2015, it was very common to see girls have hand sanitizers from Bath & Body Works on their backpacks and purses. It seemed as if those have basically disappeared as a trend when I entered high school where I am at least.

That's how we all feel when we leave High School though I'm more in touch with teen culture now than I was in 2015 since most of my friends are still teenagers. I was out of touch with teen culture in 2015 and most of 2016, but got back into it in late 2016 with being on PerC, getting back in tune mainstream rap, learning about musically, using Discord, and just hanging around with Early 2000s borns these past 2 years.  Signing into a Snapchat account in late 2016 was the first step, then it was actually interacting with more younger kids and learning about what connects them.

Guys in my school stopped wearing their hair long since around 2013, at 2015 the latest. Screw the 2010s for killing off emo and long hair on guys.

Yep, I remember in Early 2013 that my Language Arts Class read the Hunger Games Book, everyone took turns reading out loud. Hunger Games craze were real back in the early-mid 2010s.

I saw a lot of long hair in 2013, even in 2014. At least in my high school. 2010-2014 still had some 2000s leftovers.

This all went away in 2015. Damn I hate being a teen in this decade.

Or maybe they were just a trend in middle school, which is why it disappeared right when you started high school.

High schoolers in my area were doing that as well.
