Ahhh the mid-twenties, a time where spending $800+ (at least) and two vacation days on a music festival in the desert is the only way to hail in spring. Though the weather wasn’t 100% desirable and I had a few tanning/wardrobe malfunctions, I overcame my #firstworldproblems in order to enjoy being young, wild and free.
