No I Am Not
An officemate and I have quite a thing for everything "hipster" that most of the time we make fun of how we can't tell if someone's a hipster, what makes a hipster and why are they hipster. Sometimes we tease by calling each other "hipsters" (according to the numerous lists of "signs that you are a hipster"). But at the end of every bantering we always, always deny that we are simply because we're not!
I am not a hipster. Although I am very much guilty of uttering the“I liked them before they were mainstream” line, fancying indie-rock music and for owning a bike, I'm not. Jeezus how many people owns a bike, listens to indie-rock and states the same line!?
I don't smoke, I don't wear plaid, don't wear glasses with no lenses (which is stupid in my opinion), I'm not an intellectual nor do I reject everything mainstream! The "hipsters" are in Cubao if you're looking for one. Hee.
After watching the video above I therefore concluded that I am not a hipster because 1) I am not wealthy and 2) I am not smelly LOL. *peace*
PS: This piece is very entertaining and informative at the same time, please do not take it seriously.
