After staying up until 1 – 2 a.m. for the past three nights, writing four papers in four days and working 25 hours I can honestly say – I have hit a wall. Evidence: I’m watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – the movie – not the cartoon.
I need to write two huge papers – preferably by Sunday night. I have neither the desire or energy to start either. My weight has ballooned. I can’t seem to stop eating or spending. And the thought of exercising exhausts me. There’s a lot of external negative energy around me that I can’t control and it’s draining me as well.
One bright spot – I’m such a nerd. I’m looking forward to Saturday. Why? It’s July 1st – the first day of my new planner.
I need a GST (Get Sh!t Done Day) or two. I also need a retreat. No tech, no homework, no agenda. Just a chance to get away, sleep and recharge – maybe with a nice walk or hike followed by a bubble bath.
These things come and go. This one just seems to be hitting me hard right now. I’ll be fine.
It’s not time for a wrecking ball, but I think taking some time to patch some mortar is in order.
