10 Signs You Are Becoming Hipster

Jerry Seinfeld: a man before his time
Greetings devoted readers! After extensive research in the fashionable boroughs of Montreal, San Francisco, and Brooklyn, I have finally unmasked the ancient secret of archetypal Hipsterdom, uniform across both time and space. Yet rather than selfishly reflect on what I have discovered, I will use my findings for the benefit of humanity.  So, in the interest preventing this infection from which we at-risk here at Queen’s, I have compiled warning signs to ensure you do not descend deeper into the dark depths of Hipsterdom. If you think you are an at-risk individual, do not panic. There are numerous activities available on Queen’s campus to bring you back on the right path. You can lift weights at the ARC with your gym buddy, remove your shirt at a sporting event, rock a backwards cap with Ray Bans or even blast with pride that Kei$ha album everyone knows you listen to. The point is help exists, and it is all around. Don’t let yourself become a victim.

1.      You stopped shopping at Urban Outfitters because it has become too mainstream 

2.      You have switched from PBR to Colt 45 because it is more authentic 

3.      You struggle into your pants after removing them from the dryer

4.      You shaved your mustache for November 

5.      You listen to Jazz because no one else does

6.      You have downgraded from a bike with 21 to 1 gear

7.      You and your friends refer to each other as “bros”

8.      Your glasses cover more than 25% of your face

9.      You have three different shades of jean jackets 

10.  When confronted, you vehemently deny being a hipster
