As soon as I transitioned from college to adulthood, I learned quickly that too much pabst makes me feel like crapst. I need vegetables, physical activity, nature and mornings in my life in order to be a happy successful human. That said, a life that consists solely of green smoothies and spin class doesn’t appeal much to me either….
While at this point I consider myself to be a little past my “hipster heyday,” to most I’d probably still fit the bill.
- If you ask me where I got my outfit I’ll tell you it’s vintage.
- I hang out in bars the size of studio apartments then stop going the second they get a good yelp review.
- My friends are in all the bands you like.*
- I complain about gentrification and the lack of yoga studios in my neighborhood within the same breath.
- I genuinely enjoy contemporary art.
- I once took a college course called “techno-bodies in cyber space.”
- I talk about things like crystals and sage and “the universe” without a hint of either seriousness or irony.
*update: you’ll only like/remember them if you’re over 30.
