People conform to nonconformity. Lately, I've noticed many people who listen to "undiscovered" music or wear "vintage" clothes not because they like to, but because they're trying to "fit out" in order to fit in. You've just heard of an indie band? Don't tell me you've been listening to them for ages. Do you really read those classic books you talk about or did you look up the summary the night before online? Do you automatically think a band sucks if they're popular enough to be played on the radio?
Wiki definition of a Hipster: people associated with alternative culture, particularly alternative music, independent rock, alternative hip-hop, independent film and a lifestyle revolving around thrift store shopping, eating organic, locally grown, vegetarian, and/or vegan food, drinking local beer (or even brewing their own), listening to public radio, and riding fixed-gear bicycles.
What happens when being original becomes unoriginal? When everyone tries to fit in to a stereotype that's whole point is to "fit out"? When "alternative culture" becomes the norm? How can it still be considered alternative?
Bottom Line, Do whatever the fuck you want, but please, make sure you're actually interested it. Don't go spouting about anarchy, atheism or apathy just to be cool, really.

I love the sound of wipers across a windshield
I love running from the car, attempting to avoid getting wet
I love staring out the window of a monotonous classroom to watch the droplets
I love driving all my friends home so they won’t get soaked
I love getting to work early and sitting in the parking lot,
listening to the pitter-patter on the car roof
I love standing under the awning on your cigarette break
and blowing clouds of gray into the already gray sky
I love how the nighttime stoplights shine on slick streets after a day full of rain

Hey remember that time we decided to kiss anywhere except the mouth
Hey remember that time when my favorite colors were pink and green
Hey remember that month when I only ate boxes of tangerines
So cheap and juicy, tangerines
Hey remember that time when I would only read Shakespeare
Hey remember that other time when I would only read the backs of cereal boxes
Hey remember that time I tried to save a pigeon with a broken wing
A street cat got him by morning and I had to bury pieces of his body in my building's playground
I thought I was going to be sick, I thought I was going to be sick
Hey remember that time when I would only smoke Parliaments
Hey remember that time when I would only smoke Marlboros
Hey remember that time when I would only smoke Camels
Hey remember that time when I was broke
I didn't care I just bummed from my friends
Bum, bum, bum, bum, bum...
Hey remember that time when you O.D'ed
Hey remember that other time when you O.D'ed for the second time
Well in the waiting room while waiting for news of you I hallucinated I could read your mind
And I was on a lot of shit too but what I saw, man, I tell you it was freaky, freaky

I accidentally threw out the original poem in a school-is-out-must-throw-all-notes-away frenzy. So here we have my remake, inspired by my Health teacher talking about conflicting drugs in the body. The words were rumbling around in my head for hours.

- 7 am is a good time to travel from Baltimore to Ocean City on Sundays
- Drinking a large coffee before a road trip will lead to many pit-stops
- It is important to bring gas money- lots of gas money
- A good music playlist is essential in order to have a good road trip
- A driver is lucky to get a parking spot on the Oceanside of Costal Highway, very lucky
- One should bring an ipod, a book or a friend to occupy their time spent out of the water
- Don’t forget to apply, re-apply and re-re-apply sunscreen
- Places like the backs of hands, tops of feet, lips and ears are often forgotten when applying sunscreen
- If you have gauges, you will most likely loose one, if not both while body-surfing, but things like pen caps can make appropriate substitute gauges
- It is smart to bring an extra set of clothes when going to the beach. You never know when you’ll have to change
- Always check for things like vomit before swimming in a pool
- It is never good to accidentally bump into a car, especially when the owner of said car is a bitchy old pro golf employee. She will call the cops
- The police in Ocean City have better things to do than waste their time on accident reports
- 6:30 pm is not a good time to travel from Ocean City to Baltimore on Sundays
- Avoid listening to calming music while driving home exhausted, this will only make you want to sleep
- Don’t listen to the navigational device "TomTom" when trying to find the fastest route home. The monotonous machine will take you on six different highways and through the city, ultimately taking you on the most sketchy and longest route possible
- Bad things happen in three's
- Driving home at ten o’clock when you haven’t slept in 34 hours is not good. Your vision will start to fail and you won’t be able to keep your head straight

-Bathroom fight scene between Harry and Draco
-Love-Potioned Ron (hilarious!)
-Cormac McLaggen puking on Snape’s shoes
-Dumbledore with the fire in the cave (bad-ass!)
-Ron semi-moaning Hermione’s name, hell, Ron was funny the entire movie
-Harry under the Felix Felisis potion (“Hi!”)
Events not included and/or edited:
-The meeting between the Prime Minister and the Minister of Magic
-Harry and Dumbledore flying back to Hogwarts on brooms
-Dumbledore hexing Harry still under the invisibility cloak
-The battle between the Death Eaters and previous D.A. members
All in all, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was a success film and I cannot wait for it to be released in video so I can buy it and watch it again. Go see the movie and blog about your own opinions!
p.s. sorry for all of the parenthesis

p.s. go to itunes and listen to songs like "The House Called Awesome Theme Song", "Brotherly Love" and "In Which Draco and Harry Secretly Want to Make Out" (hehe) . Project Playlist didn't have a wide variety.
