I always suspected there was an undercover hippie movement on UW - just did not know how strong it was.
Keep the confessions (and awesome throwback pictures) coming people.
BTW Rene and John cannot be a part of this movement - in another world maybe, but not this one.
'(especially in the 1960s) a person of unconventional appearance, typically having long hair and wearing beads, associated with a subculture involving a rejection of conventional values'... etc
Reminds me of the old arguement - Are hippies born or made?
It was the 70's for me. IMO hippies can be born or made.
I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO envious that a class mate of mine got to go! Since I was in high school at the time, of course my parents wouldn't let me; and I did beg. My class mate that went was a guy. My parents were great parents; I just didn't fully realize it at the time-lol.
Truth time. I was never anything even close to a hippy. I was in high school and college but was rather conservative and "preppy". IN the 70's, I was a young wife and mother and then a young single mother. No time for anything else!
However, in the spirit of complete honesty, one of my best friends from high school kidnapped Patty Hearst. True story.
