Living in San Francisco, I have become friends with many different kinds of people all over the city, as SF is known for having some very interesting sorts of people.
As a yoyoer, I bring my yoyoing to all groups I interact with, and its interesting to see how the different sub communities react to it.
From my interactions and friendships in college, I have become absorbed into many different cliques of people, and for the sake of generalizing them (and to name a few of the many) lets call these groups: Ravers, Otaku’s, Hipsters, Goths, Hippies, and Scene kids.
Yes, I have interacted in each of these little sub cultures and have brought my yoyoing to each. And I think its interesting to see how each group reacts to it.
From talking with others in the yoyo community, I have found that there are many others who could fit into these different sub cultures, but often times, many do not expose their yoyoing to their own subcultures that they are a part of,
I think that this should change.
We are all part of something, and with that, we can expose our yoyoing to a very different sort of culture, and when that culture finds yoyoing, and by chance takes it up, it can result in some individuals with a very interesting take and view on yoyoing and yoyo’s in general, which can be a very eye opening experience.
Don’t be afraid to take your skill to your other activities and meet up’s of individuals within these “sub cultures”, as you may be able to start something very interesting and new, maybe even an entirely movement!
Something to think about.
