    Well, sh*t. No option for me, have to go back to work on Tues 4/19. I have a feeling 5 Hour Energy will be my friend for that week.

    It depends on how hard you party. LoL.

    I went back to work the next day last year, and it took a couple days to recover. Unfortunately, I never learn from my mistakes and I'm actually stopping by work on my way home on Monday to get some reports out.

    Don't look too far ahead and fret, plan only to swim in everything that's beautiful for three whole days. Anything afterwards will happen, yet not matter.

    Getitng those TPS reports finished? He he.

    I have a terrible feeling I will be working via PDA during my drive down to Coachella on 4/14 and 4/18, plus dealign with sh*t Fri morning. Damn PDAs keeping us working even when we're on "vacation".

    And pulling some all nighters and weekends at work to finish everything before I go. Awesome. All worth it though!

    I've never stayed Sunday night. Always had school or whatever or someone in my group did so always drive back to SF Sunday night.

    The one time I was at Coachella alone I was going to stay the night but I felt like I was wasting my time so I packed up and left. This year I took off work so I should finally know what Monday morning at Coachella is like.

    I always have to go back to classes Monday, and while its not exhaustion or anything that bothers me, it definitely is hard coming off such a great weekend. Its just too quick of a step back to reality. However, it isn't anything to worry about, you will be fine most likely.

    two years ago, I drove back up to San Francisco, showered, and rolled into my criminal procedure class, and managed to function through it until 9.30pm. I crashed hard when I got home, though.

    This year i'm taking tuesday off, and am contemplating spending monday night in death valley.

    I definitely need that time off - not just for recovery but it's just too damn depressing jumping right back into real life after such a phenomenal weekend. Leaving Indio Monday and not flying back to SF until Tuesday night, which means I'm not back at the office until Wednesday. That also gives me a solid day and a half of recovery (poolside) at my mom's house in LA. Perfection.

    don't worry about that crap now, it's obviously gonna be worth it and you'll survive. i don't even attend the following monday classes, but that's just me. if you have a test that monday, take it early if you can and do your hw early too.

    no matter if it's monday or the following monday, the first day of work after coachella sucks

    so far, I've only put in for monday off, but I'm very tempted to take tuesday and possibly wednesday off as well since have more time off I can take than I expected to have.

    One thing you may not be familiar with if you've never gone is the Coachella Flu. A large number of us end up getting sick right after the festival each year. I don't know if it's the dust, exhaustion, or what. Probably a combination of that along with the climate change for me, since living on the Gulf Coast I'm used to extreme humidity all the time and Indio is dry as a motherfucker.

    I learned my lesson after my first year in 2008. I fly back on Monday but always take off Tuesday as well to get at least somewhat recovered.
    If we're lucky something will happen. Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella

    I have an 8 am Introduction to Western Music class on Monday. I'm probably just going to skip it, seeing as Coachella teaches me more about Western music than any one class session would.
