Today, I came across a Huff Post on Hawaii's basic bitches- 17 Signs You're a Hawaii Basic. It was so funny and legit to an extent. Some things are exaggerated but being from Hawaii it is hilarious! I currently live in California, and a lot of people assume everyone from Hawaii has a perfect chill bikini beach life. It funny what people assume- about me because I'm from Hawaii. With media being so accessible I would think people would be more educated about Hawaii. I get asked crazy questions like: What kind of money do you guys use? What is your native language? How do you get around? Do you live in a grass shack? Can I take you to eat American food? Maybe because in movies and other media sources that's how Hawaii is portrayed but I would think people would at least know Hawaii is part of the United States.
