You know what I've found out in my life? Being cool is overrated. Well, being cool might not be overrated, but trying to be cool is. Trendsetters rarely try to be trendsetters. All the time I spent trying to be cool in high school... let's just say I would have had a 4.0 (or 4.51 in our non-weighted system) and probably not have as many student loans because of scholarships.One of my friends from college was cool. He was not only a trendsetter, but he had a Midas touch of sorts. He carried a 4.0 in one of our tougher academic programs, good looking, great hair, etc. He was accepted to the top schools in the field for post grad study with stipend. But the thing is, he was never happy. He's now in Hollywood (with no previous experience) having a blast having some small one-time roles in tv shows like Castle and How I Met Your Mother, not to mention smaller projects.If it isn't destructive to you or others, do what you want to do instead of trying to "be cool". Chasing cool leaves you winded.
