"Goblin mode” is spending the day in bed while scrolling endlessly through social media, pouring chips in your mouth, downing Eggo toaster oven waffles with hot sauce over the sink because you don't care to put them on a plate. Leaving the house in your pyjamas and socks to get a Diet Coke from the bodega.
Goblin mode is not an identity, but a frame of mind that can be switched on and off. It's about a lack of aesthetic.
Goblin mode is the opposite of trying to improve yourself. On TikTok, #GoblinMode is fixed to everything from "smoking weed alone and getting scared", to "not taking your meds".
The trend is a departure from the hyper-curated "cottagecore" influence of early pandemic days - a 2020 trend that included pastel colours and showcasing wholesome homemaking skills such as baking and embroidery.
But as the pandemic wears on endlessly, people are tired of such goals and is feeling kind of wild.
On TikTok, this hashtag has 366,000 views and features videos of users proclaiming to be the opposite of "that girl" - a highly curated aesthetic.
The "that girl" trend sets an unrealistic standard for girls to think that if they aren't waking up early to exercise, their lives are not put together.
Goblin mode embodies a certain air of harmless mischief.
The power of goblin mode is that it takes over. You act crazy and enter a very mythological space where you want to make trouble after years of pandemic induced disappointment.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
