I am proud and extremely excited to announce that I purchased my first Electric Forest Festival ticket today!! I am beyond souped. It was a tough decision to decide between Bonnaroo and Electric Forest; I wish I wasn’t a broke college student and could a) afford to go to the two (amongst many others) and b) be able to take the time out of work/whatever I land this summer for both, but alas… c’est la vie.
I recommend you check out the set-list for both festivals, they look beyond amazing. In all honesty, Bonnaroo covers the majority of my musical spectrum, but I’ve gone for the passed three years (yes, I am addicted. I know) and needed to change it up a bit. The fact that Tennessee is HOT AS HELL in the middle of June (limited trees, hard to access water) was also a big decision maker, and at least in Michigan I will be able to escape the heat by hanging in a forest (which apparently talks, score).

Well, that was my exciting thing of the day. That, and in my lesson this morning I rode Kasuga, one of our lovely UVM Dressage¬†Team ponies, who also happens to have an extensive amount of brain farts on a daily basis. I can’t really blame him though, he’s a neurotic thoroughbred with back issues who spent a lot of his life in pain, so I think I would be a basket case, too. I rode him in a hackamore, which is a bridle without a bit, and he decided to spend the majority of the lesson going sideways… in the walk, trot and canter. I give him props, it takes an extensive amount of energy and is way harder to move sideways than straight, so I’m letting bygones by bygones. Plus, when he was actually moving in the forward direction he looked splendid. Ah, life with horses. There was a boarder riding in the ring during my lesson, and maybe she pitied me or something, because she offered to let me ride her horse Gabel (who owns a bright red valor blanket, which geeks me out. It’s dubbed his “Hugh Hefner” blanket), so now I have a date this Friday to do that. I miss my horse being up here, so I’ll take whatever I can get.

About azuremarie

Bonjour, I'm Azure; a healthy dose of eccentricity best taken with a grain of salt. Most people describe me as sassy, and I like that. I love words, and think that anyone who can twist them in their mouth and make something beautiful come out is sexy and someone with whom I want to spend my time. I read a lot (bordering on too much), and am baller at boggle. I happen to be addicted to concerts/live music, and will listen to anything that can carry a beat, and even those that don't. I believe that being normal is boring, and love bright colors. I have a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs and horses, but I am beginning to be a cat person as well. Sometimes, I will admit that I like some animals better than some people - they're great listeners and don't judge. J'adore voyager. Someday I want to be able to look at a map of the world and say "I have been there, there, and there... and there", and have a memory attached to them all. I've recently begun to work at an organic juice bar, and diet/holistic health is starting to become a main passion of mine. I want to be able to experience our world, as well as help save it. Oh, and unicorns exist.
