This week – I can’t even begin.
There’s just been so much going on.
If you want a better articulated version of my week visit TeaTimeTails.
The one thing that’s kept me slightly sane has been the prospect of a long weekend (which means football!!!) and the sage advice from the latest Tina Fey produced TV show ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’.
Like nearly every other person who’s written about this series on the Internet, I watched it all in one night and have a really strong desire to watch it all again.
If you don’t live in the US, or pretend you live in 90210 like we do to watch US Netflix you may have not have seen Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt but the basic premise is this. After 15 years of living in a hole with a cult leader, they’re rescued and instead of returning her life before, Kimmy takes her Unbreakable spirit and starts a life in New York.
It’s not all smooth sailing. It is a television show and there is a narrative to drive. Naturally there’s conflict and hard times and Kimmys strategy is one that I’ve employed this week.
“You can handle anything for 10 seconds.”
10 seconds at a time. Then another 10 seconds. Then another 10 seconds.
That’s been this week. 10 seconds at a time.
The theme song is also catchy as anything. So that absolutely had to go on a cuff. With a little 10 as a secret reminder to take things 10 seconds at a time.
But if you can watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – do so immediately!
