After sharing some ideas about the hippie definition and after seeing that some of the members here share several ideas and ways of thinking related to the hippie lifestyle (even not even hippies per-se) we have thought that devoting a thread for a related family would be a logical move. Here there is a list of people who have been thought to be suitable for this family. But of course if someone wants to be part of it because he or she meets what it could be thought as a hippie influence, you only have to ask.

Here we go. I will also put a the definition GRG2 came across as well

Current Members:

-Girlsrgamers2
-BohemianAndy
-RainbowBrat
-Shyman
-Travis Justin
-Mobius
-Princess Garnet
-Cows are my friends
-Michiko
-CREA
-Burrgle
QUOTE(girlsrgamers2)

The hippie lifestyle is working great for me. I just believe being a hippie means "love everyone", "help all that you can", "do all you can to help the environment", and "never judge anyone based on appearance" (basically don't judge a book by its cover). I'm not a vegan like many hippies are (I just like my steak and chicken too darn much!), and I'm super-clean about myself (unlike many hippies ), but other than that, I definitely have the hippie mentality. I was introduced to hippie culture because of some of the big outdoor music festivals I've attended, in particular "The Grateful Dead". I just loved how much. . .well, love was in the air. And, I am truly a peaceful soul. Plus, I've been called a hippie for years because of my super-long hair and love for 60s music. (And maybe a little because I like to "toke" a bit.)

This will be such a fun familyl smile.gif We're all liked-minded people who like to enjoy life to it's fullest. I plan on kicking off my hemp sandals and making myself at home! *lights some incense* *puts on some Led Zeppelin* Enjoy, my hippie friends, enjoy.

By the way. I think BG probably would like to be part of this family. We'll see what she has to say.

Woot! This family is perfect. Surprisingly, I get along well with all the member's listed, which speaks about the mentality that most of us revolve around. Thanks for the creation shyman wink.gif

*Get's into a trance with GRG2's incense and music*

As a quasi-hippie, I'm proud to be a part of this biggrin.gif

Yeah, I think it is a good idea, we can also use this thread to discuss things we like or we think about. Like any other family thread I guess

True shyman. We can discuss loads of topics, given the free-thought paradigm that hippieness embraces xD Music etc is also a suitable area to talk about.

Yes, this will be great fun. And BG will be in for sure. I PM'ed Sahar, and I bet she'll love it too. I won't be online much longer tonight/this morning, but maybe for our next topic we'll discuss our fave bands we've seen live, and fave music in general. I know BA and I have very similar music taste (and I like all the music you always post in the music thread, shyman). I love talking about music. (And it'll be a bit different that the music thread, because we can be in a bit more in-depth discussions). I'll even pull out some sweet rock music trivia on you all. I'm a classic rock trivia buff. smile.gif Oh, my e-hubby Mobius will join the family too. He's into the hippie thing. Have a great evening/day. Peace, love, and hippieness. IPB Image

^ No worries, GRG2. You've made some really good suggestions. Good luck with work, and your other priorities. On the same note, I'd better get busy like I should be. Peace out! xD

Thanks! I know it seems crazy, but once my uni classes start back up, I'll have lots more computer time. (I'm cutting my work hours) Yes, I'm a late-in-life college student, but I'm glad I'm doing it now. I've done a lot of physical labor, and I feel like a degree will get me a job I enjoy. smile.gif I'm 32, and in my 2nd year! Wow, I know. and I'm so proud. Even though I graduated from high school in '93, I really picked up on school (uni) right away. I'm carrying a 3.96 GPA right now (It may be different outside the US, but a 4.0 is a perfect A). I've been busting my butt, though. I'm hoping I can keep my good streak up. *knocks on wood*

Good luck then. It doesn't matter being over 30 to go for a degree. I even know older people who do that. It is something to be proud of, actually

Oh, PG, I'd love to have you join. You are one of the coolest chicks I know on here. And she knows some good ol' classic rock, don't ya hun. smile.gif

@shyman, thanks. It was really hard for me at first, but my longtime boyfriend and I are doing it (attending uni) together, so the support helps.

Awww, GRG2, you're such a sweetheart. You totally just started my day off really nice. smile.gif

And yes, I know a lot of classic rock. My mom and I lived with my grandparents for a long time when she and my dad were getting their divorce. My grandparents grew up in the early/mid 60's. That's all they listen to. I grew up on it. smile.gif

Ooh, yeah, shyman, I'll so glad you started this thread. It's going to be a big hit. It's 6:30 am and I'm already enjoying it. And RB will love it here, she can shower you with your daily whippings. smile.gif

And yes, PG rocks, we hit it off right away, Kindred spirits, ya? *little Wakka reference there*

EDIT - Oops, smily overload! I'll fix that. LOL! I'm in a happy mood today *restrains from smiley*

Wow ph34r.gif Looks like you've been busting your chops in your studies GRG2 - Well done!! I know of the American GPA system, and you're doing extremely well. Keep it up wink.gif

And yeah, I agree with what shyman said. It doesn't matter than you're a little over 30. I know of people in their 40's and 50's who completed a pre-med degree, and went on to do Medicine and become doctor's smile.gif Its never too late, and with the way that you're progressing, you'll be very competitive to snap up the job you want in the job market.

By the way - welcome to Hippieness, and everything that is high, PG biggrin.gif

^What BOHEMIANANDY said. laugh.gif

GRG2...that is AMAZING. Almost a 4.0. Wow. Just wow.
And yes, kindred spirits, indeed. *laughs at Wakka refrence*

I graduate in 2 years and am going to go to a community college for my associates. Then I'm going to transfer. That plan also depends on where I'm living at the time...I could be moving within the next year. But we'll see.

Yes, in a way I'm actually glad I waited this long, because I got a taste of some of the worst work out there. This degree will be my chance at an enjoyable, well-paying job. I'm really excited. It will be so wonderful to make good wages doiing a job that interests you, challenges you, and that you don't dread attending. 90% of my past jobs, I dreaded even going in the front doors.

@shyman, I knew the whipping would be a definitely bonus. RB will be more than happy to oblige.

And that's for the probs on the GPA, I've been busting my ass to get those grades, they don't come easy (except in algebra 2, I love math)!
