What if Outside Lands 2022 Was a 90’s Movie!?

Every time I attend a music festival I go into the event not knowing what my story will be. When others ask I tell them about my project Balanced Breakfast, where I’ll write a nice review with a photo recap. Then I’ll tell them about this hipster blog started by a broke guy named Stuart, and how I need to think of something super snarky for his page. (But not so ridiculous that festivals don’t invite me back.) Upon attending this year’s Outside Lands Music Festival 2022 I considered writing about drunk high school students, unfortunate tan lines, or ridiculous things I heard people say. However, after 3 days at OSL, and after analyzing all the people and the outfits, I found myself thinking, “this place feels so 90s, could I describe this festival only using 90s movies?”

To Understand the East Bay, You Must First Understand San Pablo Avenue

I Screamed Like an Emo Teenager on BART Because Green Day, Fall Out Boy, & Weezer Are Touring Together

This Tuesday started like any other, a drowsy morning filled with fumbling around in my Walnut Creek apartment, trying not to wake my sleeping boyfriend as he snored through the morning. Besides music, he’s what makes me happy, my lifeline. I took my pills and walked into my “beauty room,”

Growing Up, & Out of San Francisco

To look back at San Francisco is to see my father and a long history. I never knew the Dot-com Boom,
but in understanding its progeny I can see the traits, genetics, and make a mold of its
predecessor.

Goodbye, Summer

Yesterday the skies were covered in a quilted blanket of grey skies, and as I stood there holding the petite blue umbrella that just barely sheltered me from the rain, it dawned on me that the Summer was over. Officially the warm weathered season’s final day is on Friday, September

Working Two Jobs Is Hard

I’m running on five hours sleep. In the last 48 hours I’ve had a total of ten hours of rest. I’m not exactly strapped for cash but I’m not exactly living the lifestyle of the rich and famous either. At the moment I’m looking to leave the job I’ve been
