I hate hipsters.
Every hipster I have ever met have been these horrible elitist who think they are better than everyone.
Ugh. They drive me crazy. They take all the stuff I have loved for years and jack up the prices. Oh, and don’t get me started on their fake glasses wearing. Wearing glasses can be a hard life and the people who do face all kinds of challenges and it bugs me to no end to see these people wear them for “fashion.” It’s like people walking around with hearing-aids for “fashion”. It’s so rude.
I just can’t stand them, and to make things even worse everyone thinks I’m one.
You see I have always loved older things. I love classic literature (and actually have read them, not just pretended).
I love records, especially the art of the album cover!
I only like music from the past as that is what I grew up listening and I just cannot connect to modern music.
I love classic cinema as that is what my mom used to show us when we were growing up. I remember being the only kid who liked “black and white” films.
Or the only one who knew Alfred Hitchcock, William Powell, Errol Flynn, Laurence Oliver, Gregory Peck, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, etc were.
I also only shopped at thrift stores as it was cheap and my family stressed the idea of using something until it was broken and unfixable. For instance I carried a CD player around with me into high school. Yes about 6 years ago when everyone had an iPod or something, I was still carrying my CD player to school and CDs to change them out.
So people think I’m a hipster, but I was doing far before the “hipster” movement came out.
Like Ginger said, I was raised old fashioned. And that’s how I like it.
That’s how I was raised. Vintage, old, historic, traditional; these were a way of life for us, and especially me.
That’s right. I don’t follow the current trends, even if they are “new-old” ones. I do what I like and enjoy the things I love. Sometimes the books, clothing, film, or even dating styles I like aren’t popular:
But I don’t care if it goes against the crowd or isn’t what “everyone else is doing”. I enjoy the things I enjoy and I’m going to keep living my life the way it is.
