En artikel om Santa Cruz som jag hittade!
Santa Cruzans are a unique breed. If you’re new to this little part of the world, it may seem simple enough to understand at first, but just wait. Santa Cruz is an open-minded place with lots of different folks doing their thing. We love that, we wouldn’t be Santa Cruzans if we didn’t. In creating this list, we did not intend to stereotype but rather point out the undertones of the hipster, environmentalist, feminist and radical that lie in every true Santa Cruzan. Enjoy.

You hold strong opinions about where you buy your groceries.

You’ve witnessed a fight break out over bike rack space at the Santa Cruz Metro.

You have, on more than one occasion, found yourself asserting to a non-Santa Cruzan that Santa Cruz is more than just a liberal, pot-smoking, hippie haven. You do this despite the fact that you’ve had three vegan housemates, your boyfriend or girlfriend is kind of an anarchist, and you’re currently enrolled in a class about the music of the Grateful Dead.

Vegan or not, you’re familiar with and have probably tasted the following: seitan, tofu, tahini, kombucha, quinoa and nutritional yeast.

When people ask if UCSC has sports you say, “Actually, I don’t really know.”

You know the difference between a hipster, a hippie and the hippie hipster.

Your mom wanted to know when you started eating kale.

You have a favorite family of deer on campus and you generally know where to find them depending on the time of day.

At some point, you started to care about what’s going on in the world.

You feel a little anxious when there’s only one kind of trash can available and find yourself searching for recycling, compost and e-waste bins.

You and everyone you know has a different opinion about which taquería has the best burritos.

You have a soft spot for a few of the homeless guys on Pacific Avenue, but you really wish they’d stop asking you for weed every time you walk by.

You know that being fashionably late to a house party means arriving about 15 to 20 minutes before the cops roll up.

You avoid Quarry Plaza when you’re running late because you’ll probably run into two to three friends who will ask you to sign their petition and today you just don’t have time.

After three years dating girls in Santa Cruz, you don’t necessarily think it’s weird they don’t shave their legs, but it’s still not your preference.

Your reusable water bottle is permanently affixed to your body.

You’ve had at least one professor you’ve never actually seen wearing pants, only hiking shorts.

You drink a lot of coffee. None of it is from Starbucks.
