The Top 10 Reasons I Am Hating Hipsters [Friday Faves]

There's a new plague making its way across college campuses from coast to coast. Take one step into your local incorporated coffee shop, vegan restaurant, Urban Outfitters or American Apparel store and you will be afflicted.

Words That Sound Dirty, But Aren't

It's hard for us not to snicker when we hear words that sound dirty, but actually have nothing to do with the subject of getting it on. Sometimes our minds just won't get out of the gutter. Case in point: "Organism/orgasm," anyone? Gets me every time.

Sundays Are For Procrastinating: Meet Two Australian Hipsters

Even though "hipsters don't exist" according to hipsters, we think hipsters are pretty funny. Sometimes I wear a v-neck and my glasses, and I feel so un-trendily trendy.

15 Most Controversial CollegeCandy Posts Ever

All of the CollegeCandy writers are strong, smart and...er...opinionated people. So we're not surprised when some of our blogs turn into heated battlegrounds. But unlike some other sites, we don’t let this scare us. In fact, we take pride in our super-opinionated writers AND readers. After all, that's the whole point of CollegeCandy -- a place where every college girl gets her voice heard.

Hipster or Gay: Can You Tell?

You see, everyone knows the gays love Manhattan. Don’t roll your eyes. Please, we have Broadway…this is their Mecca. And across the water we have Brooklyn, a mother ship for hipsters the world over.

Weekly Wrap Up: Almost Ready to Re-Stock Your Mini-Fridge

This week flew by. I mean flew. Between watching Shark Week, voting for my favorite trends of the '90s and topping it off with the second episode of Jersey Shore of the season, I made quite the dent on my couch and my parents' pantry food supply (I'm serious, I probably gained 10 pounds in White Cheddar Cheese-Its).

Waste Time With These Awesome Sites

When teachers allow computers in the classroom I have to wonder: what do they think we’re doing behind these screens? Taking notes? Absolutely not. It’s more likely you will find me Facebooking or taking part in another form of procrastination that will lead to my ultimate academic demise. But at least I’ll go down laughing.

Let’s All Give Thanks To Hipsters

Love 'em or hate em, no one can deny that we are surrounded by the hipster generation these days. We are living and breathing in the second-hand smoke of Parliament Lights everywhere we go. I have spent some time observing them in their natural habitat (dark basements and dive bars in Brooklyn and the entire campus of Virginia Commonwealth University) and have seen the light.

In Defense of Hipsters

I want to propose the unthinkable: I think hipsters are kind of OK. Many, many people disagree - even some here at CollegeCandy - but if you can look past the obvious (like the mustaches and the outline of the boys' genitalia through their super tight denim), I think our friends in Bushwick and the 'Burg have some redeeming qualities.
