Life as an Extreme Sport

Post-lecture Blues

It’s going to take some adjusting, this whole not really having a day off thing for this quarter. I’m tired this morning (okay, afternoon) – probably has to do with not getting to sleep until 3 or 4 am (hello, insomnia). So I’m feeling groggy and unmotivated, and not at all interested in going to work, doing schoolwork, or even seeing MirrorMask.

Beyond that, I think I’m suffering a bit of post-lecture letdown; I’m feeling pretty glum and isolated right now. Getting up and talking – even more than that, being friendly and cheerful and just… trying to knit together all the webs of connectivity and signification – seems to really tire me out. Which is in that ironic-sucks camp, as this really is what I’d like to spend my life doing. Phillip warned me about this a year ago, though, and still gets hit by it himself. I think the large difference between the two of us (aside from that whole PhD/experience thing) is that he has a better support network for it than I do. I’m still trying to figure out what I need for that support.

Whatever it is, I know I need to recharge my batteries before Monday.

    Funny how fickle moods like that are – just a little bit of positive turns everything around.
