Do Real Hipsters Ditch Their Phones?
Back in the day, unplugging cable was a mega hipster move. I was always proud to sound off in front of a large group, "We don't have cable!" (Of course, we had Netflix, so it wasn't as big of a deal as I made it out to be).
Now, pretty much everyone is without cable TV, so it's no big deal.
Time to move onto the next big hipster craze, and I'm wondering if that means ditching our phones...
Let's face it, I am pretty much attached to my cell phone all the time.
We are a connected generation.
And, being a hipster seems to be about being connected in various ways.
But, I'm curious, is the next big hipster thing going to be ditching our cell phones?
We've seen hipsters cut the TV cord, drop digital cameras out of favor, and say adios to email in order to get back to handwritten notes, but is the next move putting away the cell phones so that we can get back to living an unplugged lifestyle?
I have to admit, the idea of ditching the cell phone is equal parts exciting and terrifying.
Just thinking about it has been shaking with anticipation...or possibly withdrawals.
What say you, Catholic Hipsters?
