For the third year in a row I am unable to attend Electric Picnic.

And I am as bitter as ever. 

I mean, eh, I am perfectly content being stuck in an office for the entire weekend. No place I'd rather be. 

*wink, wink, nudge, nudge*

I've deleted Snapchat and logged out of Facebook for the weekend in the hopes that I will remain utterly oblivious to all the banter down in Stradbally. Instead, I have come up with this hunreal list of things to distract yourself with. 

Sure, I might see you there. 

1. Go see Billy Elliot before it's too late

As someone who haaates musicals, I cannot recommend going to see Billy enough. 

It kind of changed my life. 

Tomorrow is the last day however, so get your tickets now. Or regret it forever. 

2. Catch a gig

3. Get brunch with an old friend

That person you keep thinking of and meaning to contact – just bite the bullet. 

Get onto them and grab brunch. Boozy brunch.

4. Do a free city tour

Think you know this city like the back of your hand?

This 3 hour tour is completely free and you'll thoroughly enjoy getting to know our city all over again.
