ON MUSIC FESTIVALS

I'm like two years old and this list is about to show it!
  1. I was at Boston Calling on Friday! I've never been to a music festival before, or a concert where I've stood, and it was a tremendous experience.
  2. I love music festivals, I have decided. I am aware that this is a very teenage thing and I am also aware that I am about five years or five decades late to come to this decision, depending on how you look at it.
  3. I'm aware that they're not for everyone. And I didn't think they would be for me.
  4. But I'm very much an ambivert and thus felt like very much an ambivert thing. Being surrounded by people, but really bring by yourself, even though I was with friends.
  5. It felt good. It felt real. I felt like I was a part of something.
  6. I like being around thousands of people who were laughing and crying and screaming and dancing. I loved it. I loved it.
  7. And - this is embarrassing and I am an infant but whatever - I saw people smoking weed for the first time. Or at least, people I was next to and not just on the street. And of course, there were drunk people everywhere. It felt nice actually? It was weird that I was in this context with people who were doing these things. I felt grown up.
  8. Like, it was the first time I was in a context where people were doing these things en masse. I felt like a real actual person who could make decisions.
    I have really strict parents and it's new that I can like, go places and do things.
  9. The whole thing just felt liberating and full of energy and youth and life.
  10. Anyway here's another picture of Sufjan
    NO ONE'S ALLOWED TO MAKE FUN OF ME FOR THIS LIST
