And we will all sleep the day away.

I am incredibly tired. Yes, this is a well-known fact now.

Let's start with Warped Tour. It was, to put it lightly, an amusing disaster. The sun was absolutely baking everyone in sight. There was no shade. The friend I went with forced me to pack "at least five bottles of water". She's the concert pro. Plus, she's been to Warped Tour for the past three years. She was 100% dead on about the water. I was downing it like a camel. Seriously, on a day to day basis I normally only drink a glass or two of water and two Cokes. Yesterday was a new breed of a day.

Everything started out fine. Sure, my bag full of my eight water bottles and various unknowns was heavily weighing down on my shoulders. Also, it was sweltering. I swear to you, the sun must have been looking down on us and screaming, "Burn!". Nevertheless, I remained pumped. In record breaking time I bought a Meg & Dia shirt, received a free acoustic CD of theirs, bought a random, unheard of band's CD, watched another band perform and met a few cool drummers and guitarists. After three hours I felt like I was dying. My tank top was sticking to my skin, the water wasn't cooling me down in the slightest, my stomach was twisting like a jazz dancer, and my mass of blond hair felt like a fur coat piled on my head.

Try as I might to tough it out, I was breaking. No, no, no. Today was supposed to be epic. I was going to meet Meg & Dia, watch some stunning performances, and meet new people. After a solid thirty minutes of internal debate, I caved and texted my dad, telling him to pick me up early. It sucked. Really sucked. The friend I came with almost passed out. Another friend of mine got sick and left before I did. Countless people threw up and blacked out. Still, I hear it was pretty awesome.

Oh well, I suppose the muggy heat and I have never really been anything close to BFFs. In fact, I think we're enemies. I prefer the snow, or non-humid sunshine, or even the rain.

I'm sorry for this entry being so awfully whiny.

Random thought of the day-
The blue fireworks are my favorite, but the tend to appear the least.

Random conversation of the day-
Friend-You are a trip.

    Water is like gold there.
