On growing up... and how much it fucking sucks.

Last year I missed Ultra because of the County Convention. As you may recall, I was pretty resentful. At least, I was until I heard from some of my friends who went and, well, it just wasn't as much fun as it had been in the past. I thought they were just trying to make me feel better... but as it turns out when you get older SRO events aren't so much fun. Especially when they're outdoors.

Stacy, one of my friends in OC who was once a 'STAR' with me at a lender that shall remain nameless, was one of the people who went last year. I sent her an email about a week ago just to see how things were going and if she wanted to go this year...this is the response I got back today:

"As for UMF, If we were 22 again, it might be fun. But listening to Erin bitch and whine last year was more than I could take. I actually agreed with most of her complaints, it really wasn't just her being a pain. We only made one ap because we were actually tired. And the RBV didn't come close to helping.

I'm going to pass. I never liked Miami much anyway."

It's funny, but I get this. I feel like I want to go. But do I seriously want to spend $1000 for a weekend which will necessitate a week off from work when I return to recover? Getting old sucks balls. So, for one of the first times ever, I'm going to try to go see something DURING SXSW.

Anyone else want to go see Deadmau5 at La Zona Rosa next Wednesday?

First time ever?

Sorry to tell you this, but you missed SXSW.

It hasn't been worth the hassle for half a decade.

But maybe I'm just getting too old.

I think we went to some part of it 10 years ago, but I don't really remember.

I DO REALLY want to go to the Deadmau5 show.
