Counterculture

By: Sadie, Savannah, and Devon.

Way of living

  • Didn't want a 9-5 job
  • Lived on the streets or with many other hippies, which helped split up the work load.
  • Believed that love was WAY more important than money, where it got to the point where they won't take care of there personal hygiene because it would involved buying shampoo and soaps.
