I’m watching again Harry Potter and the deathly hollows (part 2) and I wanted to make a huge thumbs up for Helena Bonham Carter playing Bellatrix Lestrange playing Hermione Granger playing Bellatrix Lestrange.
I don’t know if it’s 100% burn-out, or maybe I’m getting sick, or what. I’m congested, unable to think straight, and increasingly sensitive to external stimuli. I also have a headache that won’t go away. Maybe I’ve unlocked a new level of migraine?
All in all, not loving it.
I would love to spend the day at home–in fact, I’d certainly be more productive from my couch. Instead, I’m at the office, sitting in an uncomfortable chair beneath bright fluorescent lights. I collect my energy for the next obligation, spend it, and repeat.
Some days the best that can be done is maintaining the minimum.
Tomorrow, I’m supposed to have my research meeting and TA a help session. But if I keep feeling like this? We’ll see.
I hope you feel all right, my friend. While you might push today-you to the brink, make sure you’re keeping tomorrow-you in mind.
