Lately, I am tired.
I haven't been getting enough sleep, and when I do, my body isn't quite sure what to do with it.
I'm heading into that crunch time of the semester, where big assignments loom ahead and I start to be constantly in the mindset of "just get through tomorrow, everything will get done".
My room is a mess, and I have little time/energy to change that.
I haven't been eating full, nutritious meals.
I haven't been exercising enough.

Lately, all I want is a week to do nothing.

And in an ideal world, "nothing" would include:
a place where I am completely anonymous
a bike
good books
a hammock
warm weather
lots of fruit
balanced meals
uninterrupted naps that don't leave me feeling guilty

"Nothing" would NOT include:
answering questions
the pressure of homework not getting done
tv and my computer
the stress of an unkempt room
having responsibilities

Perhaps when summer arrives, such a reprieve will be possible.
I'm terribly sorry if it seems that this post is full of venting.  Sometimes, some written processing is just necessary.  

(The absolute reality is that life is good right now.  God is good, and moved in big ways at a youth convention I just took a group of students to.  My family is wonderful, and my mom is starting a new job that she's perfect for.  I'm dating a wonderful & awesomely supportive guy, and I really couldn't be happier.  I'm just busy.  And tired.)


  1. This is the EXACT way I've been feeling lately... ugh. It's almost like a depression! I feel for ya girl! Hang in there! xo

  2. I've been feeling swamped and rushed lately but I try to take a few seconds to just relax. I hope you will have a free moment soon so that you can relax.

  3. I totally get where you're coming from ...... I feel that SAME way. Best wishes to you!


  4. oh my dear. i'm sorry that you're life is in that dreaded place these days. but your "nothing" place sounds wonderful! can i come? i'll pretend i don't know you so you can remain anonymous...

  5. I'm feeling that way too! It helps writing it all out though! Hoping you get out of your funk soon!

  6. I can totally relate to how you are feeling! I've been feeling completely worn out lately with the upcoming end of the semester. I find myself on the computer and watching TV quite often, but these things just leave me more tired than before. It's a good reminder to take things slow (reallllly slow!) even if just for one day, or one hour. And naps are good, but I totally feel guilty and like a lazy person after I take them!

    Hang in there!
