Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. Although "hipsterism" is really a state of mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses . Both hipster men and women sport similar androgynous hair styles that include combinations of messy shag cuts and asymmetric side-swept bangs.

Banyak arti untukku..
tepat setelah beberapa bulan semuanya berlalu
semua kegundahan itu mulai mereda.
dan aku mensyukuri apapun yang bisa aku pelajari..
aku mulai memahami keadaan.
bahwa setiap langkah kecilku telah menuntunku pada sebuah dunia yang baru.
The facade of the Cantin Apartments, one of several homes turned apartments in the Oliver area.
Located at 10011 115 street, this building would have been originally constructed as a single family dwelling. The earliest mention I could find of the building's existence was a 1924 Henderson Directory listing, which names a Mr. William G. Parson as occupying the lot. Parson, who served as a branch manager for McLaughlin Motors, lived in the house until 1926 when it was taken over by Charles R. Freeman, a department manager for the T. Eaton Company. Freeman lived here until 1930 when a string of various tenants came and went until 1939. That year it seems the building was purchased by Arthur J. Cantin Sr., an electric and gas inspector for the Dominion Government. He added new additions to the front and rear of the home and subdivided it into five apartments. The original tenants of this new apartment complex were W.O. Parlee, N.A. Fallow, Howard T. Emery, W.H. Power and Mr. Cantin himself. The new tenants had a mix of interesting professions; one was a provincial clerk, another the proprietor of the Koffee Korner and one was a founder of the law firm Newell, Lindsay, Emery & Ford.
The 1939 addition to the building shows Art Moderne elements, with it's emphasis on horizontal speed lines above it's first and second floor windows. Like many similar structures from the era, stucco was the finishing material of choice. The original home itself is still visible on the north and south sides, which still displays it's brick walls. Like everyone else, the Great Depression was a struggle for land owners and often houses were subdivided and repurposed as apartments to bring in extra revenue. The Cantin is one of several examples of these conversions still standing in the Oliver community.
The Cantin, now dwarfed by much larger buildings, continues to function as apartments to this day. Despite its interesting design and history, it is not listed on the city's Inventory of Historic Resources, meaning it has zero protection in the case a demolition permit is issued.
