It has been a day and a half since I left Electric Daisy Carnival, and I’m still completely worn out. Not exactly sure why, as I usually recover after a good night’s sleep. Here’s a text exchange I had today with MC, a girl I met at EDC, that sums up our physical condition. MC went to EDC last night as well, which means that she attended EDC three nights in a row, which makes her one and a half times more hardcore than I am.
me: How was EDC last night?
MC: Oh it was good! I didn’t roll but had a great time! I miss the people I’ve met :(. How was the flight back [to San Francisco]?
me: Mercifully short. I slept the entire hour and a half. Glad you had a great time!
MC: Are you feeling like a zombie still?
me: Oh yes.
MC: So yesterday remember I was feeling completely miserable? Omg like words cannot describe the feelings. Well!! I didn’t sleep at all again and I took another shower feeling more shittty. But I drowned a can of Red Bull and popped a molly that disappeared after 2 minutes of rolling. I think its official, all those happy good feelings got drained hahah and theenn I drank Powerade while at EDC and I think it helped because I came back, slept for a bit and I feel pretttyy awesome right now. Like I’m not a zombie but feel functional but just a tad bit tired. Maybe 10 hours later I’ll be feeling shitty again lol! But drink Gatorade!!
me: Wow you are a trooper. Definitely get a lot of rest when you can. I’m still feeling groggy as hell.
