I knew this was going to happen. I set myself up for failure. After three years of blogging, you'd think I'd know better, but here I am. Admitting defeat. FINE, UNIVERSE. YOU WIN THIS ROUND. Le sigh. In fairness, it was inevitable. It's about time I failed to deliver on a promise I made in my blog-o-sphere. I feel like this has been long overdue....
Confused? Allow me to explain. In yesterday's post I was talking about the power of the mighty editorial calendar and how I had big plans to watch the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting and then blog about it today. I was so ready! I was going to take notes, and comment on the holiday spirit, and talk about the history of the tree lighting as it dates back to the Great Depression, and give a quick recap of the musical performances, and showcasewho wore what and how god-awful it was, and talk about how the little girl in me marveled over the dancers and ice skaters and ballerinas and pretty girls in sparkly outfits... I WAS FREAKING PUMPED.
Well. Life kicked in, I got caught up doing things, completely forgot about the ceremony until I was safely in bed at 2am, panicked briefly, and then thought to myself "Oh well, you know what, I'll just watch it online and then right my review."
But of course, the Internet was all like NOOOOOOO I WON'T LET YOU WATCH IT. So now here I am. Defeated.
Trying to torrent it. Moving on to bigger and better things because illegally downloading things is wrong, even if it is in the name of being a full time blogger.
Life happens. You gotta learn to roll with the punches, or you're gonna have a bad time. When things don't go according to plan, I like to think of life as an interrupting cow knock-knock joke, and it makes me giggle and calm down instead of spending hours panicking/worrying/hating myself.
Knock-knock! Who's there? Life! Oh, hey life, I was actually just headed out the door on my way to following through on this promise I made on my blog about the Rockefel.... MOOOOOOOOOOO MOTHERF*CKER, LOL!
.... You guys, my brain is a weird place.
Anyways - moral of the story being that this Rockefeller post has been postponed until NBC lets me watch the show online. But it's coming! I promise!
Hope you're all staying warm and snuggly, xx Nikbear
