hardly containing myself

Postby Gemineye » Mon Jan 30, 2012 11:09 pm

Hello! Virgin here. My soul sister and I hope to attend Burning Man together, it being both of our first times.
We've been interested in )'( for years now and feel that we are ready to experience it ourselves.
I've already begun my research and I've done a lot of reading. I want to get a lot of things prepared sooner rather than later, seeing as there should be a handful of other 'ventures I'll have to plan in between now and August. The more time has passed, the more I feel like my first trip to Burning Man will be a trip into myself, but I'm still really excited to meet and befriend countless people, dress up, break down, observe, and get involved.

Namaste my soon to be friends.

Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Ah, TK I hear this every time. When I ask someone who's gone they stare at me for a moment, clearly and firmly state that I've got to go and find out myself what it's like, but assure me that it's awesome.

So, here I am! Making my way there.

I just got back from the Emerald City a few weeks ago. I love it up there! I met a ton of people there that would were either burners or plan on coming this year. It will be like nothing you've ever seen, and by the time it's over you'll start counting the days until you come back. Welcome!

don't buy into the hype. it is a patch of desert where nothing exists. beyond that it is what you make of it. if you go expecting too much you will be very disapointed.
