“Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper…”
~Demi Lovato, “Skyscraper”
Know what’s a really uncool and obnoxious way to celebrate being finished with edits? A sinus infection. No exaggeration, I started not feeling well only a couple hours after wrapping up revisions on Saturday. How’s that for lousy timing? Instead of spending my week off with good books, delicious mochas, festive holiday gifts, and great friends, I’ve been hanging out in bed with cough drops, a thermometer, and Advil. Sounds super fun, right? I am determined to feel better by tomorrow, though, because it’s Jingle Ball and I have been waiting to see KC perform again for such a long time. These stubborn sinuses will not rain on my parade. If that means postponing plans and extending my break by a few days to compensate, so be it. I’m such a workaholic that I could probably use the extra time off, anyway.
I had planned to showcase songs from several Jingle Ball artists today, but since I’m writing this while trying to ignore the sinus pressure in my head, I’m just gonna go with one instead. Since I’ve inundated y’all with Kelly songs in past weeks, I figured I’d go with something different, Demi Lovato’s Skyscraper. It’s a beautiful song with an important message, and even though I’m obviously most looking forward to seeing KC tomorrow, it’ll be cool to hear Demi and some of the other artists in person, too.
Have you ever been to a radio station’s compilation concert before, or do you stick to solo tours? And … anyone have suggestions for ways to clear up a sinus infection? Pleaseeeee?
