So I've been thinking about what it means to be hip and cool these days. You've got hipsters, jocks, nerds, and way to many other labels that I really don't want to go into. And it seems that everyone is trying to follow some sort of style or movement. Now some people are more obnoxious about it and will let you know that they are modern and cool, aka Hipsters. I get called a hipster sometimes and I really don't mind. I mean I wear skinny jeans and thick rimmed ray-bans but it's a good look and I do get a lot of compliments. I really don't blame anyone for their choice of style and I just think everyone tries to express themselves. So why judge me because I dress differently? I'm not sure I guess I'm just ranting, BUT back to the point. Everyone is hip in some sort of way whether it is the music their listening to, the sports they watch, or the shoes on their feet. They are influenced by something in the media. Can anyone actually express themselves uniquely without jacking someone's style or look. I mean you're buying clothes that are designer or based off some sort of designer. You could make your own clothes, but wouldn't you be using some sort of template or standard. I'm not sure if I'm just being narcissistic or not. I just feel that everything has been done or has been thought of before. Everyone is hip in some sort of way and follows some sort of trend. Just my thoughts, what are yours?
