what up, world?

i’m back! procrastination strikes again. i should be doing my ACLS right now but instead i’m writing to you happy people. how’s it goin? how’s life? everyone treatin ya well? right on.

once again i’ve not really written as often as i should, probably because of laziness on my part. hey, at least i’ve been occupying my time with lovely upstanding activities like bonnaroo 🙂 oh, silly bonnaroo, how fantastic you were. i miss you so much already. i don’t know if there are words to encapsulate you right now. maybe just a brief “this is what went down” kinda thing.

all the madness began thursday… we’d been up late with (FAVORITE!!!!!) passion pit the night before, so just getting out of bed was a chore, but we did it. packed the car. drove off into the sunrise, soy latte in hand. only excellence ahead. it was smooth sailing (give or take a few stops at wal-mart and such) until we arrived at the exit for bonnaroo traffic… to make an extremely long story short, i will just say: 15 miles and 6.5 hours later (YES I SAID SIX AND A HALF HOURS AND FIFTEEN EFFING MILES) we donned wrist bands and drove into our camp for the next four days. we set up our shit with a quickness and felt pretty proud of ourselves with our massive tent and canopy thing. seeing that we left the ATL around 9am and it was now close to 8pm, we wanted to start drinking asap. the festival on thurs was kinda uneventful… no rain, just a little mud to get acquainted with, one heatstroke fainting event (with love from yours truly), a few shows (temper trap, part of wale (um… he was late and didn’t even really do anything on stage), and a bit of foul-mouthed & crass margaret cho), and one located sister (nadia drove up late after class). all in all a good preview of what was to come.

FRIDAY didn’t allow much sleep, it was so effing hot out there, so we got up and pretty much sat around in the shade, drinking and napping, until we decided to go see edward sharpe midafternoon. the sun was brutal in manchester, y’all. brutal! just sayin, i wore SPF 90 all weekend and i have never been darker. and my back’s burned. not horribly, but still. SPF 90!! Read the rest of this entry »
