While I will argue that not only hipsters take pictures of their food, I agree that this habit is getting a little out of hand. In fact, there is entire Tumblr called Pictures of Hipsters Taking Pictures of Food dedicated to this strange phenomenon. Although I’m guilty of taking some food pics at restaurants here and there, looking back at them is never really thrilling, so it seems the only purpose of taking pictures of food is to show your friends what you’re eating which seems like a waste of time. I’m starting to miss the days when I had no idea what my friends from high school were eating for each meal, before I knew about every baby milestone of people I haven’t spoken to in years and probably never will again.

What Not To Wear To Stores

Thursday 02.23.2012 , Posted by

Have you ever been out shopping and noticed another customer staring over at you with a perplexed look on their face? You look over at them, give a small nod and smile, then go back to digging through the t-shirts at Urban Outfitters looking for the right size — even though you know everyone already has the ‘Pugs, Not Drugs’ shirt (since when did pugs become so cool anyways? Ugh, mouth breathers). They come over and kindly ask if you have x shirt in a medium. At first you don’t hear them, shrugging it off to them speaking a different form of English than you.
