Despite having received a definite offer of financial support for the festivals project, I reached a point today where I just thought what on earth am I doing? This is stupid. I think it’s mostly down to certain people not getting back to me. Not Red Bull so much as people I thought were on board. It feels like being unfollowed by people you like on Twitter. It feels like a kick in the neck.
But I have been offered a contribution towards the first three months of European festivals by Joobili.com in return for some copy for their website and a bit of promotion. It’s not carved in stone yet, and it’s not a great deal of cash as they’re only just a start-up, but it’s a definite boost.
I’ve also carried on writing to brands and PRs and whatnot, but I don’t know, I feel a little hopeless today. It’s probably got a lot to do with the onslaught of news about two really rather tedious rich people getting engaged. I am baffled as to why anyone would care. I mean, it actually seems that nobody in the real world does care, but the media has decreed that, care or not, we must drown in this shit for the foreseeable. Oh, and The iBeatles. Jesus. Why can’t people realise that me wanting to go round the world and write about people at festivals is so much more important than all of this? Why?!
Plus I haven’t had a cigarette for two days. Maybe that’s got something to do with it.
I’m hoping things will seem more positive tomorrow.
Oh, and that thing about me and Kate Middleton? And her being quite bitey down below? Totally true.
