I Was Recently Called a Hipster

By Jen Lewis

So how does one define "hipster" anyway?

I've heard it said that a hipster is someone who WANTS to be a nerd, and is on the edge of nerdiness, but afraid to commit. 

Some say it's all about the music - you've probably never heard of it, it's a really obscure band, I liked them before they were popular kind of thing.

Others have based it strictly on what I was wearing: apparently wearing TOMS, a maxi skirt, a moustache necklace and a thrift shop shirt qualifies me for the category in some cases. 

But now for the heart of the matter. Is it a good thing?

Do tell. 

What's your definition of a "hipster," friends? And... is it a good thing?
