Thread: What do we do now, friends...

  1. #1

    Unhappy What do we do now, friends...

    This was my first year at Coachella. I'm a senior in high school, and all year I've been working hard on college applications, AP classes, etc...
    I was looking forward to coachella all year as an escape, and it totally blew me away.

    there were so many great bands that I was dying to see--and i'm sure I dont have to explain to you guys the magic of being surrounded by that much music, and soul.

    On sunday our group won Carpoolchella! We recieved VIP wristbands and sidestage access all day. Getting to meet all of the bands, and hang out with Keith Murray (We Are Scientists lead singer) was mindblowing. W.A.S. is one of my favourite bands, and when I ran into keith with a friend we hung out with him for almost an hour...

    now I find myself at home--brutally depressed, and missing hanging out with him. lol. i cant even look at the picutres and videos of us or I start to cry. We fuckin poured booze to honour my dead grandma.

    Now I'm also doubting my college choice--before going to coachella I thought I was going to go to UCSB, a college in my hometown. but when i came home, i suddenly felt that i have to leave--to excperience something different. So now im considering University of San Francisco, even though it isnt as 'good' of a school.

    As a coachella newbie, this was a mindblowing experience.

    what do I do now...

    I'm also a Senior in HS right now and enjoyed Coachella this year as well.

    I'm attending SF State in August... By the way, you do know that UC San Francisco is only medical/dental right?

    Oh I thought you'd typed that lol, my bad. Yeah I actually never looked into that school. I probably should have.

    Oh well. Check out SF State though still. Do you have a major in mind?

    we all sorta go through that post-coachella depression. for some reason this year wasnt that bad for me even tho it was a great weekend. yes sometimes looking back at the experience i get teary eyed myself. for the past year any time i heard mgmt's time to pretend i'd get all emotional because it brought back such vivid memories of 08

    i went to a show at a club tonite, seemed pretty boring in comparison

    anyway take what you can from it and start looking forward to the end of the year when they announce the dates, then the end of january for the lineup, baby steps. oh and check out santa cruz if you havent. the area kinda reminds me of berkeley and humboldt mixed together. always interesting stuff going on there, one of the weirdest towns ive ever been to and a good school as well

    Go to the better school and travel when you can.

    Set yourself up for success and take advantage of weekends and holidays to travel North, South and East.

    While at UCSB live on Campus and that will certainly be a rawking new experience.

    Go to Santa Cruz or stick to Santa Barbara. Undergrad isn't much work - get access to a car and make it a priority to take frequent road trips all over the West Coast. If Coachella made you super happy, make a habit of driving everywhere between Vancouver and San Diego to see shows.

    1) Go to a funeral! I was soooo depressed on Monday/Tuesday, then I had to go to my Grandma's funeral on Wednesday and it totally took me out of Coachella-mode. Now I just remember having a blast!

    2) Go to another festival! I've got Sasquatch to look forward to in 4 weeks. Wooo!

    Dude...UCSB is great for partying...remember this when making your choice. I feel IV calling to me already...
    But yeah, pretty much, then next year will be saving money and making plans for next coachella while looking at pictures and youtube videos of your favorite moments...

    Thank you for the good LOL. You sound like every AP kid I have ever met: repressed, unable to make personal decisions, completely fascinated with any slight deviance from the norm. This is what advanced placement classes do to your brainz. Sounds like Straight A's from the Dead Kennedys.

    dude, SB would be sick, but you live there already, yes?

    well fuck it. go anywhere but there. sure it's a "good" school, but everyone i know (and myself included) would make their choices now on going to different part of California. I went to humboldt state, and even though i eventually moved back home, i will never be the same person and never forget the amazing experiences and friends i made. moving out of your hometown that you grew up in is a necessity! and just because you make one school choice now, doesn't mean you can't change it later.

    after choosing a school that was 14 hours away from home, im now transferring to another cal state an hour away. so basically, choose SF state or something of that sort. you can always go back to SB! and yes, next year will be a lot harder to get to coachella . . . its harder saving money in college, while drinking all the time.
    Why couldn't Coachella end on 4/20?

    The choice between USF and Santa Barbara is a choice between a small private school and a large UC, so it's not just good vs. not-as-good. USF might be better if you're the type of person who likes to be able to talk to professors and small class sizes and all that stuff. I went to St. Mary's, in the same conference as USF, and I'm still not sure that I made the right decision, but I definitely appreciate what I had (I also chose SMC over USF FWIW).

    How do people find time/money to do this? I just...don't get it. I would love to do these things, but I just don't understand how it's possible. Someone explain this routine to me. I wonder about this every time I look at someone's sig and they're going to every festival and shows up and down the coast every day of the week.

    Good news, the depression wore off in a week or two (as im sure all of you vets know haha) and simply turned into some very happy memories :]

    I'm so excited for Coachella next year! And after tons of deliberation, i decided to go to USF. UCSB is great, but the art scene (being an artist/writer) in San Fran is so awesome, and after learning more about the school I could really picture myself as a student there.


    Here's to working hard in fun classes I actually enjoy (fuck calculus), and exploring a new city :]

    See you at Coachella 2010! (Fingers crossed for Daft Punk)

    HAHA! AP classes are literally a mindfuck. I took AP Biology last year and AP Music Theory this year and i utterly regret it. I only took AP classes because I was in this program that REQUIRED me to do so. Over the past summer however, to my surprise, i got a letter from the school pretty much saying that I'm kicked out of the program because my grades aren't high enough. Lame much? Indeed. APs were a waste of my fucking time. I'm glad that I didn't let APs take over my life though since I pretty much had a dgaf attitude towards it. Hallelujah to no APs my senior year next year!

    But yeah, APs have seriously ruined a lot of people I know (good friends too, unfortunately). A lot of them are always stressed out, super depressed, and never enjoy their lives (or don't have the enthusiasm to make plans to make their lives more enjoyable). It's a very sad sight to see.
