And on the seventh day… I just realized that this will be the last day of Incubate 2012. I’m not too sure how to feel about it. Sad? Disappointed? I guess I should just be glad with all the new memories it gave me. The new bands and music I’ve heard. The people I met and all the different places I went to. Ok… Enough before we’ll all start sobbing. I believe in circles. Round circles. What this past week has taught me is that I have some loose ends in my life.
A week like the one during Incubate makes me think about myself. On Monday I got to think about my political preferences, on Tuesday I learned about my hidden passion for tattoos and on Wednesday I realized that my dream is to become a music critic. Then on Thursday I found out that it’s better to sleep at home than out in the streets and yesterday I had to conclude that I’m missing some rock-n-roll in my genes. Not bad for a week’s work, right?
But what to do? Just learning doesn’t cut it for me. I want to improve. Last night, during the Mogwai show in 013, I decided it was time for some action. I wanted to be rock-n-roll and I was in desperate need for a tattoo. Being the person I am, I did some quick research and settled for what I could get at that very moment. The tattoo artist that would give me what I had to have. Right away. I asked the guy for a badass tattoo to make me feel and look totally rock-n-roll. This is what I ended up with. Cool huh?
Today I’m going to finish the full circle of Incubate with my review of Japandroids’ show. Living the dream!
