ladyfalcon: (Felt up & feeling fine)
Here's the scene: It's 2 o'clock in the afternoon, just last Tuesday. I am procrastinating on some papers that need to get written. The way I procrastinate is by trolling Twitter obsessively.

Suddenly, a tweet pops up from one of my friends on HitRECord - "HitRECord at the Movies tonight at University of Maryland - but that's 4 hours away. :("

And for a second I can feel nothing. The second after that is a flood of "HOLY SHIT THAT IS 15 MINUTES AWAY FROM ME WHY THE HELL DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME?!?!?!"

Because, see, I have been in love with HitRECord and the idea of HitRECord since I figured out what it was. And last October I had tickets to go see a HitRECord live show in New York that then got canceled. I mean, I got to go up anyway and met a lot of HitRECorders and made friends etc., but it's just not the same. And just the weekend before, there was a live show in LA that it seemed like every single person I was friends with was able to just up and attend.

I didn't have either the time or the money to hop a plane across the country. I might never have the time and the money again, was my depressed sad-is-me thought. Even getting the tickets to go to New York was the result of a pretty unlikely series of events, and I was pretty sure I was never going to get the chance again. I was happy for my friends but also deeply jealous.

So suddenly this little opportunity drops right into my lap. It is 2. The show is at 8. There is still time. My brain went into overdrive. )

So that is my story of my Luckiest Day Ever (with HitRECord and Joseph Gordon-Levitt).

The best (or very important) part is that I got all the work I had originally been procrastinating on finished the next day, in plenty of time! So basically every single thing went my way that could have.
