Just a kind of blah-mingled-with-panic day. It’s cold, I have half a flu, my office computer has died, I have to teach later. I have work piling up, and more and more of it coming in… and just can’t really get motivated to do any of it.
At some point I’ll get started, I assume. But while I’m not either clinically depressed or bipolar, I do tend to have cycles of massive productivity and focus, and others when it just doesn’t really happen… and forcing it doesn’t help.
Sadly, the rhythms of work and my personal rhythms don’t always synchronize well.
