It’s Friday. Which means tomorrow is Saturday and Future Music Festival. I am sooooooper-duper excited for this, which in my world means that I need to remain vigilant in my determination not to jump the gun and ruin things for myself tomorrow.
Yes, surprise! Self control is a major issue of mine when it comes to knowing I have something awesome on the next day. My track record shows a tendency to get over-excited and go on a rampage the night before, leaving myself hungover and in less than peak condition for the big event. But maybe it will be different this time. I suppose it’s up to me to rein myself in.
The fact that I’m working tonight is making me hopeful. Maybe this will help curb my appetite for (self) destruction? Although, full disclosure, I work in a bar with ready access to the occasional (and sometimes more than occasional) shot on the job. Also, it is my 32nd birthday on Monday so there’s that. Although I’m undecided as to whether this is a plus or minus – will chalk it up as both, just to be safe.
So many factors working against me. But I must be strong. I’ve been looking forward to this festival for weeks now and it’s shaping up to be a great day/night. Surely I can forego immediate gratification in lieu of a good night’s sleep and a well rested start to what will be a looooong day. Yes, I’m going to be like the little engine that could – I think I can, I think I can. Yep, that’s me. Power of positive thinking!
Not this pessimistic bastard here…
