As a former barista, I can say that I have learned a lot about people in general. There’s a lot of people-watching, unpleasant interactions, and every now and then, surprising friendships. I’ve learned to take the good with the bad and have lots of ridiculous stories, but here are just a few problems I’ve encountered being a coffee wizard:
Last week, I found myself in a deep conversation with my boyfriend about Maroon 5 and how their music has changed over the years. Of course he didn’t ask and didn’t so much care but nevertheless, I persisted. I also hadn’t realized how passionate I was about this topic until I was already down the rabbit hole.
Let me lay it all out there for you. I've been to a bunch of concerts. This is a long list of 24 concerts (one for every year I've been alive) I can remember attending from the time I was 12 up until now. Judge away.
It was a lovely Spring day in Savannah, Georgia. I remember it vividly although I wish I could forget. I had just recently gotten my undergrad and moved to the South where my family had been living for nearly two years. Fresh off the boat (or janky Jeep Liberty) with a film degree, I figured I could get a good start in good ole' Georgia. I mean they filmed Magic Magic 2 there, for goodness sake!
So, you’re going to a music festival. I’m not sure if YOU are sure of what this undertaking entails.
