I dont really know how I really got into the whole hippy thing it was about a year and half ago though. As time as gone on I've become a lot more into the hippy ways and beliefs and feel as if this is what I was meant to be. The other day however my friends got on the topic of "fake hippies" and considered me one. My friends, who none are even close to hippies, somehow consider me fake. I guess I can understand this in a way because to them I"m still the girl i was only a year ago but I want to prove to them and to everyone that I am not this so called "fake hippy" because there are a lot of girls/guys i know who think its cute to buy hippy like clothing or stupid victria secret jakets with peace signs on it. I do have many tie-dyed shirts and peace ones but I am not like these people who do it because its cool. I have been trying to make a difference and be a more peaceful person, I'm also in a club at school that celebrates diversity and tries to make ignortant people aware of issues going on, I also spent time over the summer out of country helping poverty stricken people. I want to be a so called "real hippy" I just dont know how to go about this transformation. If you have any thing you could input it would be great peace.
