The brain, she’s not performing optimally at the moment.
I’ve always prided myself on my fabulously excellent memory and my ability to get things done. Right now none of these things are working for me, I’m forgetting all manner of stuff (both of the facts and the to do kind) and some of what I do manage to accomplish is nowhere near the extremely high standard I ordinarily set for myself.
I blame extreme SML-work-overload, Don votes for increasing age.
Whatever the cause, it is ridiculously unpleasant and as of yesterday, I’m taking to writing everything down as it occurs to me. This has made me realise how many, many things must occur to me as I have filled two pages of an exercise book already. Worrisome, as I used to manage this all in my head without issue.
Worst of all, I appear to have lost my bloggering mojo. I take photographs and compose fragments in my head but don’t seem to be able to bring myself to follow through.
I have resolved that the coming week will be about trying to claw back some semblance of normality.
I will blog something insignificant every day, I will take my vitamins (I’ve made a chart), I will eat a healthy breakfast (also, chart), I will exercise for at least 10 minutes, I will focus on the task at hand and not worry about the avalanche of work about to engulf me.
I will breathe.
