I rent a place in a really, really old house that has been separated into 5 apartments. It's small, but has a lot going for it, and it's perfect for me at this point in my life.

I have been suppressing my inner hippie for a while now. I don't know why really, I guess I just always felt it might come off as elitist, annoying or worse - trendy.  But I can't ignore any longer: guys, I am a hippie. I can't say that I follow a particularly 'organic lifestyle', nor am I strictly scouring every label for GMO's or specific ingredients to avoid. I don't consider myself a locavore, or a minimalist or anything really. It's just not my thing.  But the hip...
