Go to Coachella
Full Body Reset
Leave your mind and problems at home and let your body get back to nature. The only thing that you can think of during the day is how hot you are and how much water and beer you should be drinking (one day I drank 20 bottles of water and 20 beers and peed thrice). Night falls and it’s still perfect weather for the beach. The beats are bumping and you could give a hoot about the unchecked e-mails in your inbox. Currently I’m having trouble getting motivated to put in work on my thesis. It’s the only thing I think about but it’s the last thing that I want to work on. Coachella took it off my mind and when I came back I was ready to make some progress. Use a get-a-way like this to give your brain a break from whatever you think about most.
There are people everywhere. A lot of them use this weekend to do a lot of drugs in public. Watching someone scream, yell and love an inanimate object never gets old. My favorite time to people watch came during the night time main stage events where all the different drug cultures came together to watch an artist they were all familiar with. The ravers come out of their techno-tents full of flashing lights and pumping bass to intermingle with the ultra-chill and relaxed stoners who enjoy sprawling out on the grass to enjoy some calming tunes, while the psychedelic crews are always close by just wanting to touch everything with a look on their face that shows they aren’t anywhere close to this reality. Everyone is fascinated and driven by something a little different and the building tension is just hilarious to watch as they all come together to get a good view of the stage and listen to some music.
