Since when does hair dye make you a hipster? Lol hair dye was around before hipsters ever existed (hair dye must be a hipster). Dying your hair doesn't make you a hipster. I think the fact that you purposefully wore outfits just to be different makes you just the same as any other hipster. Hipsters are just average turds trying to be different. If you have to try to act a certain way or dress a certain way, it's not for you and not what you're really comfy with. Let's face it. You were a regular dude/girl who was momentarily depressed and discovered seeking attention could excite you. Sounds like the story of every other lame emo kid. You TRIED to stand out so people would stare at you. You asked for the negative attention. People who stand out or are different naturally don't have to try at all to be who they are.

You said you acted different on purpose and wore crazy clothes on purpose. This obviously was attention seeking behavior which is very immature.

**** Freud, all I did was gel my hair and push myself to be more social. I don't think dying your hair makes you a hipster, when I said none of that hipster **** I meant the fake eyeglasses and scene bs.

Also, I was 16.

When I was 16, I was in an unusually steady relationship (for a teenager) with an amazing guy I am now married to and pretty much the school Goth. (None of the cry me a river emo garbage. I'm talking about the 80's styled Goth although it wasn't the 80's.) I lived in a small religious bible belt sort of town so no matter what I did I was wrong. I didn't pay mind to those people though. It was funny seeing a 16 year old skank on her 3rd pregnancy and 25th f-buddy calling me a whore. I think I laughed the most at the kid on meth giving bj's in the bushes calling me a bitch. I really hated the little emo clique there. The funny thing now is I'm still Goth and a decently successful artist with a genius husband who builds/programs computers and apps. I check back a peep on facebook and see half of these kids are in jail, pregnant, or even dead.


High school was annoying, but could have been worse. Half of the people in my school turned up as crackheads and I didn't.

Hey, that's awesome; I wish you the best. I never meant that anyone who isn't enjoying high school is just whining; obviously the intense amount of ******** can put most kids through the wringer, especially in the wrong community.

So to anyone out there who's having trouble socially in school, don't worry; coming out of your shell can be risky and painful at times; but holy **** can it be worth it.
