The Ultimate Collection of the Most Hipster Moments

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

From wheatgrass shots to dirty beards, torn vintage clothing and typewriters in coffee shops, when it comes to hipsters, anything goes, as long it’s got a hefty price tag on it.  That’s the hipster way to get through this emotional life, but you better make sure to do all things before they become cool. Here are some of the most hilarious moments in hipster history, suggesting that perhaps people have taken this trendy style a little too far…


An Eco-Friendly Ride



Who said you need to live in the Middle East to ride a camel to work? This super hipster couldn’t possibly be seen in a non eco friendly car, and a bike is just way too main stream nowadays. It was only cool to ride a bike before it became cool. He’s surely on his way to WeWork or some kind of co-working space where he’ll have a chai latte in a recyclable cup.



Street Style



Well, this is just pure street style at it’s finest. While eating meat is really not alright for hipsters, wearing socks that have meat written all over them is perfectly fine. And not matching at all is also perfectly fine for hipsters too – in fact, the less, the better.  It’s all about going against what everyone else is doing.


So Stumped



If it doesn’t have a hefty price tag on it – then is it really worth looking at it? Hipsters know how to find value in the things that others disregard, and know the true worth of a unique item. They can turn nothing into something, and less is always more as long as it wasn’t cheap.  This 98$ tree stump is everything a hipster could ever dream of for his home.



Typewriter Transportation



No subway ride really was worth it if you didn’t bring your vintage typewriter with you. Even if it doesn’t actually work, or you don’t know how to use it, and even if you slept the entire ride through, you’ve surely got to mark your hipster status wherever you go, especially though when using public transportation.  That’s the true essence of being a hipster. But make sure you don’t let anyone know that you care what they think.


Pet Peacock



Well, now that literally everyone and their cousin has a dog or a cat, us hipsters over here need to step them up with our unique pets. What could be more hipster than a pet peacock? He likes to go for long walks down the streets of New York City and show off his fabulous color schemes.  Urban Outfitters might have inspired these hipsters a little too much.



The Hipster Mobile



Well, it really doesn’t get any more hipster than this. Having a normal bike with two wheels just won’t cut it. The new and improved hipster mobile comes with just one wheel, and of course a basket for all your farm to table organic purchases. The fact that this bike can’t actually get you anywhere is completely besides the point.
