If you’ve spent any amount of time on the Internet, you are sure to have seen the term “aesthetic” thrown around a lot. That cup of coffee? Aesthetic. That floral arrangement? Aesthetic. That picture of a sunset? Aesthetic. Basically, any visually appealing thing could qualify as “aesthetic.” It doesn’t sound so weird when you consider humans have always liked to look at pretty things. With the help of websites like Tumblr and Pinterest, the categorization of aesthetics began. At this point, there are countless categories: fairly core, kuromicore, new wave, pastel goth, and many, many more. Different cultures and sub-cultures pop up and develop every day with a rapidly growing number of members. But, how are you supposed to navigate and find your own personal aesthetic in this ever-expanding world? What ultra-specific group of interests is the right fit for you? Don't fret. Just answer these questions and find out what your personal aesthetic is!
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
One of the most popular aesthetic types, dark academia, is based on European culture and classical literature. Works like "Pride and Prejudice," "Little Women," "Madame Bovary," and "1984" are just some of the titles that are considered a must-read in the dark academia world. Not only is certain literature considered a part of this aesthetic, but specific movies and music too. When it comes to movies, films like The Dreamers, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and Black Swan, should all be on an IMDB watchlist of true dark academia enthusiasts. And if your cup of tea is music, you can find hours-long playlists on YouTube for when you really want to feel like you’re living the dark academia dream. Some of the values that go with this aesthetic are the pursuit of self-discovery, wisdom, and a passion for learning and knowledge. This gives the aesthetic more depth than just pictures of books and brown outfits.
