Over The Edge

I woke up at 6am, groggy and fuzzy-brained.  At 9am, I went back to bed.  I got up around 1pm, ate something, and went back to bed around 4pm.  I woke back up at 8pm, and here we are.  I know what this is, I done played this game, and it ain't good. 

Not only did I not accomplish anything, I didn't even attempt to accomplish anything.  Ben-To! writeup?  Nope, and I don't care.  Wash dishes?  Nope, don't care.  Clean the living room?  Don't care.  Grocery shopping?  Don't.

My friends, the potential exists that I'm dealing with a touch of depression.  Please bear with me if I'm not funny or anything.  Not, he says self-deprecatingly, that I ever was.

1 Some days you just need to sleep in.

2 At least you found a good photo...

3 It was in my "ducks doing things" file.

4 It was Saturday. It's allowed.  Besides, you did accomplish something in my comment section that warmed my heart.

5 If only you could want to do nothing today, eh?  Then you'd just have to get up and do the next Ben-To, or laundry, or whatever.

6 I did a load of t-shirts today, it's not that exciting.

7 One day is one thing. Just start fresh as soon as you can.

Sometimes you can get a lot of chores done by either getting up early and then sleeping in afterwards, or just doing something mechanically while your brain is still half asleep. (Assuming you're not so sleepy that you drop things or burn yourself.) Summer heat and sinus can make the day kinda sluggish, so early morning or late night are better times to do things in the summer.

Turn on your tunes, also, and do exercise even if you don't want to. It helps energize your brain. Obviously that's not the whole story with depression, but it does help. Going outside in the sunlight and getting some Vitamin D are also depression fighters.

So does a schedule or daily routine, as you probably know. There's something about "I have to do this because today is Thursday" that can get your body moving even when your brain is being gray and uncooperative. You can make a rational routine for yourself. It's harder when you don't have external pressure, but you can do it.

8 Good luck. At least know that you helped this poor lunk out and that's something.

10 I find myself wondering if that duck managed to get airborne before hitting bottom.

11 I assume the answer is "yes". I would think that for birds, if they feel themselves falling, then spreading their wings would be instinctive.

12 Think of it like the duck version of a waterpark ride, Steven.

13 I've had a four-day weekend in which the only productive activities have been mailing out a rent check, a little bit of house-cleaning, and calling the parents. (And I discovered that there is vodka that tastes like cake! ...this was a dangerous discovery...)

I suppose I have another day of weekend, but yeah, not planning anything productive tomorrow either. ;p

It's okay to lose a couple days to the blahs here and there. It's not time to worry until that becomes the default. If it does, get help, 'kay? (Take the advice of the drunk man at your peril. Cake flavor...)

14 Vodka that tastes like cake?  Do tell...

15 Ben, enter "UV Vodka" and "Cake" into your favorite search engine.  There are probably other brands, but that one advertises on the official sports station of The Pond.

16 Dammit, UV doesn't like West Texas.  All their stores are east of I-35.

17 I tried Smirnoff but noticed that UV also has one. Hadn't heard of the brand but I'll try it next time.

Was a little productive today - rescued my lost box of oversized manga from the terrible fate of still being at the ex's aunt's house. Got some sata andaagi for my trouble too. Other than that it's been nothing but fooling around on the internet, chatting with a local buddy, and playing a couple hours of Project Diva F...
