When: Thursday // Weather: cold but sunny // Real life: working remotely and unfortunately not going to NYC
If you read my blog every day, you know I’m supposed to be in New York City right now for a fabulously nerdy fashion law conference. If you read literally any other news source, you know New York got hit with a beast of a snow storm yesterday. My Thursday morning flight got cancelled on Wednesday night, but then I got rebooked for Thursday afternoon. Not so bad. Had to cancel plans with friends, but I got some extra sleep, more time to pack, and did some work from home.
Around 1pm Thursday, an hour and half before I planned to leave for the airport, my rebooked flight got cancelled. (Cue dramatic fall to my knees while screaming “NOOOOO!”) I called the airline and searched all the websites I could think of, and the only option left would’ve involved getting to the airport at 4am and missing the first session of the conference. I was definitely excited for the trip, but it got to the point where the extra stress and extra effort was outweighing the few remaining benefits.
Sigh. So I cancelled my hotel, return flight, and conference registration, and then went out for a drink and Greek food. This outfit was going to be a great travel slash walking through snowy NYC ensemble, but it turned out to be a decent work from home slash eating consolation falafel ensemble instead.
