And I Don’t Feel Like Learning A New Game System Right Now

January 28, 2022

My thoughts are decidedly morbid today (I suspect the streak of overcast days here is at least partly to blame), and I’ll admit that lately I haven’t been enjoying “the game of life” very much. Honestly, I’d consider folding if it weren’t for the fact that I like my teammates so much.

One of the things I particularly have to watch out for is falling into the fallacious belief that something won’t effect me.  (By that I mean things like other people’s moods or shifts in environmental conditions still within human tolerance, not things like gravity or flying bullets.)  Over the years I’ve gotten better at not making that mistake (Because there’s nothing quite like parenthood to teach you about your limits.), but I still fall into the trap from time to time.

Case in point, today I spent too much time trying to figure why I was having so much difficulty focusing.  Granted last week took a lot out of me, and this week promises to be just as draining, but I didn’t feel bad, just indefinably . . . off.

Then I realized that today is one of those days that isn’t gray enough to be depressing, but neither is it bright enough to perk you up either.
