I’ll admit – I somewhat subscribe to the hipster culture. My favorite places to be in Chicago are Empty Bottle, The Metro, Double Door. I listen to bands you’ve never heard of: Mates of State, Headlights, Bloc Party, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. I won’t go to Starbucks because it is too mainstream. Although, I am kind of glad to be a little too chunky to dress completely like them, with those ridiculously tight jeans and ironic t-shirts. Okay, I love the ironic t-shirts, they’re just not that tight on me. Visit Wicker Park in Chicago or Williamsburg, Brooklyn and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
In case you didn’t already figure this out, my inspiration for the above image is Ramit’s series on young people and finances. I’ve noticed that all of the people in his pictures are pretty much, well, yuppies.
Hipsters should be thinking about money, too. They already shop at thrift stores and drink cheap PBR. Why not save some of that money?
What do you think? Do you have any suggestions?
