Becoming Anti-Hippie

July 6, 2001


We are the other group of people who don’t mind shopping at Walmart and washing our hair when needed. True, I have my complaints about the government of America, I smoke weed, hug trees, denounce fashion, and listen to politically charged music – there is a fine line between believing in a cause and jumping on the wagon without looking, understanding, and accepting the other side. An equilibrium must be acquired leaving no room for extremities. I am losing faith in the accuracy of my fellow pupils and realizing that the ones who regret to follow the indicating trends of an alternative movement are the ones who really know where it’s at.
