Coachella was a full week ago but I’m still riding high on its madness. As much as the music and the surprise guest appearances make Coachella what it is, it’s all that fucking free-spirited, flower crown-wearing, dancing in the polo fields, intoxicated by life and love and recreations with my favorite dude and my best friends bullshit that make it just, everything.
The Holychild Tour thus far has been wild. I was mildly seasoned enough to recall that time moves differently when you’re on the road, but had forgotten how quick it feels yet how slow it goes all the same. By day two it had already felt like I was out for weeks, though each day’s length runs through in a breeze. I’ve been working to the core of each day and this experience has been a growing and challenging time I’m thankful to have. I drove a tour van by myself through New York for example, something I never thought I’d willingly do or even be capable of handling. I haven’t had much time to stay connected to anyone or anything outside of my work bubble, realizing only tonight, on Day 6, that I haven’t physically spoken to anyone outside of work in a full week (remedied tonight by a few phone calls). It’s also both strange and liberating to be days behind on internet and pop culture sensations. My usual existence is commonly contained in front of a computer screen, but now my days are breathing and stretching. Living with the bare minimum can feel maximum.
So like a year ago I decided to start taking a second-long video every day for a year and by the end I’d have a beautiful portrait of my life and the many lovely people who are in it. Since then I’ve dyed my hair purple then pink then blue, went to a lot of improv shows, spent time in NYC with my brother, travelled to Iceland, and made some amazing new friends. And I’ve got the PROOF NOW! Check it out.
my darling best friend Caitie’s past year in video. Luckily I spend a lot of time with this chick, so I am all up in this.
