I recently submitted a (potentially) humourous quiz that I’d written to the Monash University campus magazine, Lot’s Wife. Unfortunately they chose not to accept the submission, they said it was not suited to their readership and that the concept was ‘overdone’ (they’re probably right). Regardless of this setback, I liked my quiz and feel like you should as well. Given that I can publish whatever I feel like on my blog, regardless of it’s quality or hilarity, I’m going to subject you to the banality and over-cooked-ness that is the ‘What is your style’ quiz.

You clearly still live at home with mum and or dad and they still pay for most of your stuff. As a result your style is more expensive that most of your university counterparts. Don’t worry too much, you’ll develop a more unique style when you have to pay for everything yourself.
You are the typical poor student. You struggle through with whatever cash you can scrape together from some awful part time job or Centrelink, or both if you’re lucky. Your style is shabby chic, you try to look cool but it’s hard when you’re broke!
You are a hippie. You are probably vegan, may have dreadlocks, love Wholefoods, and do everything you can to stop the rape of the earth. Your clothes are fair trade, ethically produced and animal free.
You’re a hipster. A big giant hipster. But it’s not that bad, you’re among friends here and I’m sure you’ll get over it as soon as it’s not cool to be into stuff before it’s cool.
