in sum: walking miles in the blazing sun and dirty desert ground for hours, blisters, sunburns, and extreme weather changes from 100 degrees to 60. no sleep, lots of calorie consumption, people watching (i.e. fanny pak, rob kardashian, whitney port, lo bosworth..), discovering new and amazing music, dancing like no one was watching. 5 minute showers, wearing the same outfit twice (do not judge me!), taking zero pictures - literally, dying cell phones, and getting lost in the sea of crowds. jamming to the best live music and seeing some of my favorite artists which I've loved since my childhood, and experiencing all of this with my friends (in addition to making new ones) was priceless.
