tumblr. I’ve been neglecting you. T in the park happened over 4 weeks ago. It was insane. Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain. Mud, swampy mud. I thought i’d stay nice and dry in the bar marquee. Oh no, I got soaked by the rain pouring off the roof and saturating my as I handed drinks orders out to people. Shocking stuff! Met some amazing people. Maximus, my bar manager. Biggest flirt EVER! A lassie who’s beenliving in Australia for 10 years and happened to be a BIG fan of my favourite local singer songwriter, Michael Cassidy. Kismet I suppose. Also, a sax player from London, living in Glasgow while she studies happens to play in a funk band in which I went on one date with their quirky guitarist. (We both had fun, but it just wasn’t to be.)
Two weekends after T, I went to work at Wickerman down near the Borders with the events security. I was drafted on for nightshift, and OH MY GOD! Best way to work at the festivals. Work from 10pm to 10am, sleep for 2 - 4 hours (if you can in the roasting hot tent), then get up, get showered and go enjoy the festival. Needless to say, I survived on high caffeine energy drinks ALL weekend. From thursday morning until sunday late evening, I had 5 maybe 6 hours total sleep. I LOVED IT! Working there, and being able to enjoy the festival made me realise that Wickerman is the kind of festival I want to be running/organising when I’m older. Fantastic range in music styles, great family atmosphere and best of all, it had the BEST weather. Dry and sunny from thursday to sunday morning, where it then became overcast, windy and began to rain (but we were getting ready to get the bus home.)
After Wickerman, well, I’ve been spending A LOT of time with a man. After ditching ‘Taxi Boy’ ,as I shall call him and his horrible angry attitude to life, I’m now officially off the market. ‘The Man’ and I, we got together on the first of July for his birthday, then kept seeing each other regularly after that. We called it and made it official on the 6th of this month after a really fantastic night out to dinner and a gig. I never dreamed that everything I’ve been hoping for would actually come together, and especially not all at the same time.
I start college full time on Monday. That’s just two days away. I’m excited. I haven’t yet felt nervous, but that will arrive on the first morning.
Record company wise, well theres good and bad news. More bad news than good to be honest, but I’ll fill you in tomorrow. I’m just going to leave you with a little Michael Cassidy. From his self titled E.P., this is ‘Everybody’s Scared’.
