One of my problems is that I’m a planner (as in, a person who plans…not a spiral-bound calendar notebook). I think it’s good to have a grand scheme sort of plan, an overarching goal to achieve, but I will plan my day around something I expect to happen, and therein lies the problem: the thing I expect/hope/DEPEND on happening won’t, and then I get all mopey and disappointed because that throws everything else off.
Well, the point is, this is a regular occurrence in my life, and it happened today. I was SO stoked about this whole haircut thing that I planned my blog release/facebook abandonment around it. I was awake until (don’t judge me) 4 a.m. working on this blog site just so it would be ready. I charged my camera to capture the new me. I already thought of a blog title for my next entry. So naturally what happens?? I wrote down the wrong time for my hair appointment and ended up missing it.
I can live with this minor setback, but I’m extraordinarily exhausted because I got 2.5 hours of sleep, and then I realized the lunar eclipse is TONIGHT, not tomorrow night, and how cool would it be to experience a total lunar eclipse on the winter solstice which hasn’t happened in over 400 years!? Well, according to Neil Degrasse Tyson, not as cool as everyone thinks, but I don’t care. I want to see it, even if that means I will have to use medeival metal devices to hold my eyelids open. I mean, when the overnight low is 40 degrees (in the WINTER) and clear skies are predicted, you can’t really say no.
But for those of you in less accomodating conditions, this guy’s interview will make you feel less bad about missing it. (fast forward to 2:45, unless you’re keen on wiccan dancing).
