After living in Taiwan so long but still meeting Americans that come to work here...I sometimes see things that seem weird to me, then I find out it's a hipster thing.
Like scarves. I couldn't understand why lots of the 22 or 23 year-old American girls were wearing scarves with T-shirts still on.
Then I found out it's a 'thing'.
I noticed 3 or 4 of my male American coworkers had beards. Wow, I thought, I haven't seen so many guys wearing beards like this.
Then I found out it was a 'thing'.
For fuck's sakes I've heard that even the e-mail provider they use is a 'thing'...Hipsters apparently use gmail.
