too much weekend.

Today is a trick. It’s actually Tuesday, but feels like a Monday… except a Monday in the most brutal way possible. I think I had too much weekend. For the first time in a long, long time, I took some proper time off. On Saturday I didn’t open my laptop for the entire day — do you know how big of a deal that is for me? I even spent most of Monday away from my laptop, focusing instead on organizing my apartment and creating more of a zen environment in here. I had every intention of getting ahead of the week, too. And here I am, mid-day on Tuesday with nary a blog post written for the week, a mountain of emails, and some serious deadlines looming. A healthy person would say that I needed the time off, that it will be good for my creativity, etc etc. Except right now I feel anything but creative. Instead, I feel frenzied, rushed, disorganized, and totally unsettled. In this moment, it feels like all I can do is make a giant pot of coffee, throw on this album, and put my head down. Any other suggestions?
