Concert

So I don't really understand that "post concert high" everyone talks about. For me, it's more of a low. Very, very low. I never have any energy left when finished performing, and then I get terribly depressed. In a soul-crushing abyss of emo kind of way. And everyone around me is running around with their energy and their loud voices and their high-pitched instruments and it is frustrating.

I need to stay home tomorrow and brood like a broody person, but that's not going to happen.

I like bass, really I do. I'm thinking of going to school for it, actually, and I think I would be mostly happy with that, if a little achy with my back pain and shoulder pain and knee pain and hand cramps. But most of the time, these days, all I want to do is play bass, so there is no good reason for me to get like this. And yet I do. Every single time.

so...
i found this through the random journal thing.

thought i'd leave a comment.

i know what you mean about the concert low thing. sometimes, after i perform or sing or something, i'm worn out, and i just want to go to bed and cry. other times, though, i feel like i'm walking on air, to quote a cliche.

Re: so...
Hey, no problem, random comments are awesome.

For me I mostly get the walking on air thing while actually playing, and I guess sometimes I do feel good after concerts if I know we rocked. But then other times... angsty woe. Good to know I'm not crazy and this happens to other people, though.
