About a week and a half ago, I noticed that the charger for my MacBook was starting to rip. Wires were exposed, and I knew it was only a matter of time before it (for lack of a better phrase) shit the bed. I made it to last Tuesday before the charger decided to call it quits and take its last watts of electricity.
There I was, with a computer only half-charged and a pile of work to do for class. I called my father and asked him to order a new charger for me; it was time for the waiting game to begin. After five days of feeling like a contestant on Survivor who doesn’t have any rice to eat, I checked my mailbox. There it was, a new MacBook charger just for me. Suffice to say it was a joyous day.
Now that I no longer have to only sparingly use my computer, I can finally dedicate some time to a blog post.
Since Coachella begins in three days, I figured it’s an appropriate topic for the week. I was reminded of the upcoming festival last night when the opportunity arose for me to create a customized Spotify playlist based on my favorite artists in the Coachella lineup. It aided me in my procrastination at a time when I should have been intensely studying for a test.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival takes place annually in Indio, California. The festival first began in 1999 and has since grown into one of the biggest music festivals in the country. The three-day, two-weekend event plays host to 50+ artists each day. In addition to concerts, the festival has on-site camping and an expensive Dinner in the Rose Garden if you’re willing to pay a hefty sum.
Tickets for the event sell out within hours of their release, so a sense of urgency and aggression is needed to score a pass to the festival. This year, a general admission ticket is $375, and this doesn’t even include transportation, dining, and lodging expenses. I might as well start putting money aside now if I ever want an opportunity to attend the festival.
My Twitter feed has been all about Coachella these past few days, from what types of outfits to wear to highlights of artists in this year’s lineup. So many great artists are performing this year that I have vowed to attend the festival at least once in my life.
Until I start saving my money, I’ll have to settle for living vicariously through the pictures that will surely be posted to Twitter and other social media sites in the coming days. It’s time to start a Coachella fund.
