In my ornate lexicon, I invent words all the time. But, I also create metaphors that are either based on popculture references or historical happenings that I use, when talking about real life situations. This time I thought I'd share my favorite with you, and its called "Carrie gets up after falling on the runway," which works especially well considering it is fashion week.
You may or may not have seen the episode of Sex in the City, that I'm talking about. What happens is, Carrie is chosen to walk in a fashion show at NYFW, She's so excited for obviously reasons, but throughout the episode everything falls apart, they take her out of a Dolce and Gabanna dress in place for beige bedazzled panties and a blue satin trench coat, She finds out the other celebrities walking the show are major D-listers and then it happens, she hits rock bottom, she falls on the runway and the photographer that she thought was genuine (and sexy), takes her photo as she's lying on the runway, while Heidi Klum walks over her pancake ass, CARRIE WAS FASHION ROADKILL.
After her tumble she says, "I had a choice, I could slink off the runway and let my innter model die of shame, or I could pick myself up, flaws and all, and finish"
Then she gets up in her bedazzled panties with her slightly tousled hair and begins to walk
"and that's just what I did, cause when real people fall down in life, they get right back up, and keep on walking"
Then she high-fives Heidi Klum and works it, at the end of the runway, with the crowd going wild and us back home crying our eyes out. She does an extra twirl and I completely lose it. CARRIE YOU DID IT AGAIN!
I know this seems random, but you guys don't know how often I reference this in real life. Then just the other day something amazing happened. I'm not sure if you've been paying attention to my tumblr lately but I've been really stressed and kinda blue. Taking 19 credits, 2 internships, working 4 days a week and having a daily blog is very tiring on a girl and I'd been feeling worn OUT. Then yesterday my luck totally changed, in the same day I found out three pieces of really good news, (one of which includes completely avoiding my exboyfriend at an event I was supposed to go to, YAY) and then something else happened which made finally feel a little bit better. While I was driving my newly reunited BFF Sofi back home, the song from the runway show came on! While driving down familiar streets blasting this song, I felt so empowered, I am me and I am awesome, and when times suck I just have to get up, dust my self off and high five Heidi Klum, metaphorically of course.
Whats your favorite episode of SATC? I think this one is a lot of people's fave, I know its mine.
Also how've you been lately? Is September getting you down (pun intended), have you risen from the metaphorical ashes like the super model Phoenix that you are?
Have a great day
and please keep it sassy,
