19 Signs You Might Be A Granola Girl

If you like coffee, own a hammock, and hike at least once a month, you might be granola.

First of all, "Granola" is not just a trend or hobby — it’s a way of #life. Just kidding, no true Granola would use a hashtag, we only use lower case lettering and periods in our Instagram posts. We have to keep up the ~ aesthetic ~

But seriously, you probably all clicked on this asking yourself what the heck does “Granola,” mean. Is it a noun, is it an adjective? Well, you’ve come to right place, because I think once I’ve explained it, some of you might come to your senses and realize… “Dang, that’s me.”

This term is defined in Urban Dictionary as “a new-age/more civilized hippie,” and my friend explained this is a term to describe all of us who show off their hiking-Instagram-worthy camp counselorness! If you’re still not sure whether you fall into this category, check the list below.

You might be granola if...

1. You have an arm full of friendship bracelets, pony tail holders, and a watch

2. You have a small tattoo, probably in a language other than English.

3. You wear small delicate jewelry, because you want to show you care... but not TOO much.

Gotta get that ring stack.

4. You are in possession of around 4-5 cloth headbands, preferably with a cool pattern.

We'll take one in every color, please.

5. Your refillable water bottle and laptop are decked out in stickers from the three camps you’ve counseled at as well as the 6 mountains you climbed last summer.

6. Your backpack has key chains galore.

7. You own a pair of Chacos and those babies are worn out.

8. You drink coffee and talk about it, like, alllllll the time.

Like I can't even describe how much Granola's like coffee.

9. Your Instagram is full of landscape photos from your adventures.

10. You own a scratch off map with all the places you’ve traveled to.

11. You have a Polaroid camera for all the artsy pics you’ll get against walls and such.

12. You have a cliff bar stuffed into every bag you own... just in case.

13. You’ve thought about starting a blog, or have one and write on it religiously.

14. You have a hammock that you use every day, of every week.

15. You own a succulent that you’ve personally named.

16. You listen to ‘Mumford and Sons’ on repeat.

17. You visit your farmer’s market every weekend.

18. You know exactly when the next food/music festival’s coming near you.

19. You never go anywhere without your favorite flannel.

Obviously, this was all in good-fun and I wouldn’t be able to list these traits possessing them myself. So, what do you think? Are you granola? Are Granolas the new hipsters? We shall see. In the meantime, I’m going to journal in my Eno while drinking an iced coffee.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
