dr_tectonic: (bluh)
Ugh. Today was pretty much a bust and I would like a do-over. I woke up tired this morning and really wanted to just take the morning off and go back to bed, and frankly, I should have. I got almost nothing done because I didn't have the energy to focus on anything complicated, so I tried to tackle some dumb and straightforward but semi-urgent tasks. But they were slow, and not only was I unable to deal with switching back and forth between tasks, I couldn't maintain focus through waiting for things to finish. So I ended up putzing around a bunch and then I didn't even have enough energy to disengage from doing nothing and stayed late at work for no reason at all. Bleah.

So despite the feeling that I really ought to be extra-productive with the rest of the week, I think what I need to do tomorrow is not push myself to go in early or anything, but instead make myself enough space to feel relaxed and rested so that I can get over feeling overwhelmed by the bajillion things on my to-do list and focus. And then I'll be able to get something done.
