This is one of those weeks where I seem more tired than usual. That is to be expected; sometimes we just keep going and we don’t really realize how hard we’re pushing ourselves until we just crash… and Dork Club was canceled this week due to scheduling mishaps, so there goes my chance to turn my brain off.
I can’t emphasize how important it is to get a chance to relax; I think last week was probably the most energetic I’ve been in a long time, and I did notice that my classwork improved a little with rest. But now… well, I’ve hit the metaphorical wall. I really just want to go and crash on my bed for a few hours, but I can’t do that because I have responsibilities and stuff to deal with… meh. I suppose I could keep my eyes closed long enough that it’ll all just go away… oh wait, that would mean sleeping, and I can’t do that. Well, I can, just… never mind.
Anyway, I suppose we do need days where we just burn ourselves out, because then we have a chance to build ourselves into something a bit more resilient. That being said, I wouldn’t want to spend all my time getting broken down and then rebuilt, metaphorically or physically (really, there’s sick people out there. That stuff is gross)… Well, at least I still have my limbs in one piece (and this post is getting pretty morbid all of a sudden… that’s a problem. Maybe it’s the fatigue).
And as I said earlier, Dork Club was cancelled. Now I have no way to blow off steam until next week, and even longer if Dork Club is cancelled next week as well… I’ve always got Avatar: The Last Airbender to keep me entertained if needed (Yes, I am shamelessly promoting that series, but you all should watch it; it’s awesome)… and I wanted to watch Plan 9 From Outer Space sometime soon (which is awesome in its own way, and by that I mean cheesy B-movie awesome). As long as I can keep up with my work and keep my wits about me, then I can get through this year.
I could probably use a hug too. I like hugs.
Well, the week’s almost over and my parents are coming for a visit on Friday, so that will help.
