I’ve been thinking a lot lately since Electric Forest… When eforest was done, I got added to a facebook group that was full of member that attended Electric Forest; whether if it was this year, last year, or 5 years ago. At first I was excited, I thought that I get to connect with beautiful people for a little while, then watch this 15,000+ group slowly stop posting until Electric Forest 2015 starts up again. The posts never ended. I understood that 15,000+ people would keep posting daily, but half of these people seemed to have not left the forest. I thought to myself… how the fuck do people just make a music festival the highlight of their year? if a music festival is the highlight of your year and you’re counting down the days until your next music festival, you’re pathetic. there is more to life that just music festivals. I’m 19, and I’m seeing people that are 25+ acting like me, and still haven’t figured their shit out. they’re going no where in life. I’ve got to make some changes, I don’t want to be that guy, getting a full time MINIMUM WAGE job and blowing each pay check on drugs and music festival tickets. I want to live a better life than that. I want success, I want to feel on top of the world… my world. going to festivals are just escapes from reality. but what else seems more ideal than making reality your bitch? nothing. after this summer, i’ve realized that i need to buckle down and start thinking about what I am going to do with my life.
