Coachella in 5 sleeps

I just spent a few minutes looking around the Coachella site and I've got to say... I'm finally starting to get pretty pumped! I've been ever so unpleasantly stressed of late that I really have had no time to get excited about anything. Now that the surprise 30th birthday party finally has a bit of structure (dress is bought, invites are out, room is booked, Grocery Gateway order placed, booze purchased), and work is starting to feel like a normal job (I just lied - it doesn't yet, but I haven't lost all optimism yet...), I feel a bit better about taking off for several days to the warm, welcoming climate of southern California.

I was just glancing through the lineup (I actually have the Coachella Real Player on right now!) and although I know a lot more bands this year vs. last (thank you KEXP), I feel less like I'm planning to see certain ones - don't get me wrong - I will dance to the Scissor Sisters and there are a few Canadian notables that I won't miss: Metric, the Dears, Wolf Parade, but for the most part, I'm looking forward to having the music, sunshine and beautiful, beautiful environs wash over me as I lay in on the grass, blissfully appreciating.

Where in the hell has she been?

So I was looking for a new job in January, found one in February, went to Cuba, (I'm very meh on Cuba, I must say - ants in the hotel, terrible service and we nearly got robbed by our maid. Nice beach through) came home and I’ve been in Montreal ever since. I’ve not been home except for the occasional weeknight and most weekends. I fly out at 7 AM every Monday morning (which means I’m up at 430 AM) and back in the city around 7-ish Friday nights. I’m exhausted. I’ve been chastised to no end about my lack of blog writing. I feel badly about having neglected my site. I feel even worse about not ever seeing my sister, friends and about the fact that I’ve somehow become accustomed to only five hours sleep.

The highlight of the last several weeks is I think… when my new boss and I got escorted out of the office at midnight by the cleaning staff – they’d waited an extra half hour for us to finish up. My boss’s car was locked into the parking garage so I had to drive it out of downtown to the airport the next morning for our 8 AM flight. Gha.

On the upside, I had a great meeting last weekend – making the late nights worth it (yawn). Hopefully from this point on, things start to settle down. I’ll still be in Montreal each week – but I’ll finally start working from home a few days per week. Plus I do have tons of super cool free stuff. So I’m starting to see the upside. I might have time to do something other than laundry and re-packing my suitcase….
