Weekly Capsule 45.4: Hipster CommuterPosted: November 13, 2015
I’m luckier than most in that I don’t have to commute to work – 30 minutes every day on a bike doesn’t count as “commute”. But once a week I do have to take the bus downtown to teach my workshop class, and I’m telling you, that is a trip and a half. At 1 hour 15 minutes one way, it seems breezy compared to my 2.5 hour back in LA for my internship, but in LA hardly anyone takes public transport, so my commute was actually relaxing. Here the bus is usually stuffed full of students, and the traffic is crazy. The only good thing is that the constant traffic jams give me a lot of time to read.
Anyway, I wore this for that workshop last week, and when I put on my glasses for reading on the bus, it suddenly struck me that it was such a hipster outfit. Isn’t it? The pattern mixing, the giant scarf, the boots… top it off with a pair of black-rimmed glasses and it wouldn’t feel out of place on Socality Barbie.
