For most of the people that read this blog you're not really into the whole Electronic Dance Music/Tomorrowland festival. So those that have stuck with me, I really appreciate it. But instead of another recap I thought I would tell you why. Why I love Tomorrowland so much.
It's a little weird, this obsession of mine. I don't quite fit the typical mold of a festival goer.
I'm a 26 year old, married, with a mortgage and a dog. I lead a pretty normal life. But I am addicted to the music and this festival.
Tomorrowland is an emotional experience. That's the best way for me to describe it. The music is happy. The festival is ecstatic. Almost 200,000 people singing and dancing together. Getting along, from countries all over the world that might have fought wars together. That's unique.
We met tons of people. All wanting to know more about us and us about them.
On the way to work this morning, I cried like a little baby. Not because I felt sorry for myself (although, I do a little since sitting in a cube, in a room with no windows doesn't sound appetizing) but, I cried because I was so grateful. I got to experience something people dream about. And then, I got to experience again.
Thank you so much to Tomorrowland and ID&T for sending me to this magical, crazy experience that I can't seem to get enough of. You have truly created one of the most wonderful experiences in the world. May it continue!
So, I guess the reason why is that I found something that makes me happy. I love talking about it, I love thinking about it. I just love everything about Tomorrowland. I hope that you can find something that makes you this happy. Whatever it is. Because that's the goal in life after all. To be happy. So yes, I found my happy place.

And to wrap it up… on Sunday we saw:
Now I'm back to reality, but I have the next Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld to look forward to.
What makes you happy?
