And like the title reads, this is a way, way, way long overdue post. If you follow me on instagr.am (@amyvagabond), you've probably already seen all the documentation that went on during the actual festival, but if you haven't, here are some grainy photos from my three day excursion into the coldest desert I've ever been to. Because Coachella guidelines explicitly state that DSLRs aren't permitted on festival grounds, I stocked up on Fuji Film disposable cameras. As a Coachella newbie, my friend Jasmine and I felt pretty prepared, floppy hat and hiking backpack in hand. Some of our favorites were Neon Indian, Girls, The Black Keys, JUSTICE, Florence + The Machine, Miike Snow, Girl Talk, and of course, the unforgettable SNOOPDREWHIZTUPAC50EMINEM et cetera.
The week coming back I was hit hard with school books and suffered from some major post-Coachella blues. It didn't help that I was also wait listed to my dream school, UCLA. Thus, my first-time ever visiting New York seemed imminent as NYU and UC San Diego were the final contenders on my road to university. Then literally just a couple of days ago, I was admitted from the wait list! As I was totally dejected during my time of, what I thought was, rejection, I let my grades plummet and so now I've been working hard to get them back up, albeit I graduate in less than 30 days. Ergo, if you don't see me for a while again, it'll be strongly due to the fact that I'll be fighting to keep my place as a Bruin! And my sincerest apologies if everything seems so vague and rushed because I could honestly go on and on and on about the past month, but I highly doubt that anyone would be interested in reading my novella. So until next time!
