Arrived at 5:30 am on an overnight megabus. Met a cute girl who was working for magic, took a bus to the airport and took another shuttle to my hotel.
Arrived around 6:30am, thank God was able to check in and knocked out until 11:30am.
I tried gambling with $1 and lost it right away. Went to the pool 3 times today.
Will head to Pool Tradeshow tomorrow. I am press.
To add onto this I reflected on the sadness I felt today. Saying goodbye to the past and saying hello to the new season.
Also I’m starting to see such a darkness In Vegas as I was talking to the staff of a casino. One guy said “vegas was built not on winners, but on losers”. I also noted so many frustrated people, drivers, maids, everyone seemed so frustrated, under tipped, many gamblers who have given up on life.
Though Vegas has always been glamorous to the outsiders, my heart breaks for those that are longing for a quick win and sometimes losing their whole livelihood.
I’d like to party, yes, but Let’s not forget that people are broken everywhere. Healing starts from within.
