So I've been thinking about my past encounters at Coachella and I've decided to make an effort to be an even better Coachella citizen. I really feel that certain people treat this as more than just a music festival. They treat it as a community, and that's a great feeling. So here are some things I plan to do for 2010:
Bring a Coachella virgin and put them on the path!
Meet more people from the boards. They ARE the spirit of community.
Don't find myself lost when a friend just took a new drug for the first time. (so so SO sorry Nancy!)
Relax more. I often got so wrapped up in trying to make set times that I wore myself out.
Finally, I resolve to tether myself to the people I want to be with most. Too many times I found myself alone when I wanted to share some really beautiful experiences with my friends. Texting doesn't work. Cell phones get more and more unreliable as the day wears on.
Who else can think of something they can contribute to the spirit of the Coachella community?
