For some reason, YouTube has recently begun to recommend me Dark Academia
mixes made by user "oliviaalee." It doesn't feel new and exciting, apart
from the hype train, but the video titles are hilarious:
Basically, every dark gifted kid movie ever.
Comparing the trend with cottagecore, Vox reporter Rebecca Jennings notes that "the
simple act of putting on a blazer and reading
Dostoevsky is far more doable."
Because of course it is.
