notes from a hipster


my best friend jes, who is the ultimate decision in all things sydney-related (such as: does this haircut look good? how is my speech? should i eat all twelve of these reese's? no? just six? gotcha.), stated a while ago that i was a "hipster".
"not a real hipster though, like a sydney hipster. you're own type of hipster. you know?"
actually no, i don't know. but i find it quite laughable that anyone would pin me as said hipster. i asked my mom about it and she said i look like a prep (which i found even more laughable).
it's interesting to me how different people can have such drastically different opinions of us.

but moving on.

lately i've been in a state of transcendentalism, if you could call it that... and if transcendentalism is a real world... (i just looked it up: it is). it usually entails me wandering around campus late at night talking to God and asking random questions.
has anyone else experienced this, or am i the only one?
do you ever just wonder about life? do you wonder if something is wrong with you because you think differently than everyone else? do you ever feel like the stick in the mud because you just can't get behind what people do?
i've really been asking myself these things lately.
oh, and here's a big one: did i make a mistake by coming to college?? anyone have thoughts on that one?

my roommate vows i say this at least twice a month but: maybe i'll just become a hermit and live in a cave. (jk, that could never happen. i love people too much. still.)

so i leave you with a few of the questions that have been swirling around my brain lately. and as i strap on my white converse and head out the door to ponder some more on my evening walk, hopefully i'll find some answers to my questions. have a happy week.
