What Your Favorite Band In High School Says About You
You're a soulful introvert, and you knew that high school was just fleeting, ultimately inconsequential time. There was a bigger, more important world out there, and your collective cool about all the little things gave you a sense of mystery among your peers.
You've never really quite fit into one clique — you've always had friends across different social groups and enjoyed doing things on your own. You like being provocative and wish more people would get on your level when it comes time to rock.
You are, like, so chill, dude. You're the person people would turn to when they needed to laugh, and you could always be counted on if someone needed a little ~high~. Good vibes only.
When you got to high school you finally realized your parents' record collection could actually give you some street cred. You're a purist about most things, and catch yourself pining for "back in the day" more than you'd like to admit.
You've always been an old soul. You think and feel deeply about most things, and you're always the first person to come to a loved one's side in times of need.
You're pretty happy-go-lucky and easy to please; you live a laid-back life and like to coast as much as possible.
You're a hopeless romantic, and tend to get lost in your own thoughts a lot. You love reveling in nostalgia, and enjoy taking a lot of photos so that you'll always have your memories on hand.
You love wearing flannel and acting tough, but really everyone knows that you're as soft as a fluffy cat inside. You cry during movies and sappy commercials, but love to rock hard too.
You wish everyone could stop running in the rat race and just take a minute to enjoy the world around them. You've always been a little bit of a slacker, but it's not for lack of intelligence. You just can't be bothered to conform to anyone else's standards or rules.
You like keeping things chiller than chill, bro.
You're an emotional person and you totally own it. You're also a secret badass and you're never afraid to speak your mind or stand up for the things you believe in. You've also always had a penchant for waxing poetic, something that may have developed after your years in the after-school drama club.
If being a hipster means that you love discovering new bands, restaurants, and little spots before everyone else (and getting a little sad when they blow up), then by all means, you're a hipster. You love to learn and try to keep challenging yourself with new projects. But you also tire quickly of things, so once you've become really familiar with something, you're quick to move on to the next.
In high school you could often be found scrawling your frustrations about the world into journals and submitting to poetry contests. Nowadays you're less angsty, but always looking for an opportunity to educate and engage people in the issues that matter to you.
You're either the most genuine person on the planet or love being the biggest troll.
You never felt like people really understood you growing up, and you're still pretty shy. You'd rather hang out with a few close friends and go for a long drive along the beach, talking about life, rather than going to a crowded bar. You've gotten better about not being so in your head, but still need to work on going with the flow more.
You've always loved to flirt, and you get a rush from finding a new person to crush on. In the past you may have fallen for the heartbreakers — or maybe were one yourself — but now that you've grown up a little, you're looking for the kind of love that can go the distance. But just because you're ready to settle down doesn't mean your love life is boring.
You've always had a wide range of interests, and have lots of different groups of friends. You crave adventure and never miss an opportunity to take a last-minute road trip somewhere new.
You've always been a prideful person, a little bit stubborn, a little bit cocky, but good-hearted at the core. You have a little bit of a mischievous streak in you, and you love a good prank. You are probably from New Jersey. If not, you actually kinda wish you were.
You were always the class clown and life of the party in school, and you've carried on that role into your adult life too. You sometimes have trouble focusing on work — whether it's at school or at your job — but when it comes to doing something creative, you give it 100%. You'd much rather be doing something that exercised the left side of your brain, and you love to collaborate with and learn from others you admire. Some people may have taken you for a daydreamer or a slacker back in the day, but you always knew you were prepping for something bigger.
You were a bit of a mall punk in high school — you'd cut class to browse the stores and get into some minor trouble. You tend to lighten everything with humor, and will often deflect difficult conversations with a joke, but it doesn't mean you don't care.
You've always been a bit of a DIY punk at heart: You're creative and resourceful, and always try to find your own way of doing things. You're skeptical of authority and of establishment, and would rather put your trust in yourself instead.
You're a truthful person, and people know they can go to you when they need real advice, because they know that you won't just tell them what they want to hear. And even though you're a strong person, you've always been thoughtful, compassionate, and maybe even a little bit too sensitive at times. You can have a quick temper, but only because you care so much about the things you believe in.
You're a true introvert and have some loner tendencies. You're perfectly fine spending time by yourself, and you prefer the company of a good book over a crowded party. You don't consider yourself a pessimist per se, but rather call yourself a "realist."
You're a romantic and always have been. You love making people feel special and go out of your way to plan surprises for the people you care about. Sometimes your expectations can run a little high and leave you disappointed. Just remember that not everyone operates on your level!
