Can it get any worse than this?----One Single Impression/3WW
Apartment, Began, Numb
*Update (12/03/2008): I kind of cheated for 3WW! As two words were already present in this post, I added the third one and reposted!
I know it sucks but this was my first reaction on looking at the prompt at One Single Impression: Kindness.
~when mind deviates
maybe what I need
is a bit of kindness~
March is a busy month for us who are in the teaching field. We have exams and worst part of it is the evaluation of the exam papers. Everything else takes a back seat. As we all know results are time bound, we cannot afford to be slack. I think my stress began with the 200 odd answersheets I have received for marking!
Lately I have started to feel tired. I don't want to do anything other than sleep. I don't want to read, watch TV, or write poetry (hence these personal pieces!). Worse, I don't want to evaluate answersheets! Maybe I am being plain lazy. I am definitely not depressed. Or maybe I am as my mind is kind of numb. How does one cope? Believe me, I am sleeping more than 12 hours a day for the last two days.
One of the reasons, I think is, I had severe stomach cramps for three days and the medication is making me sleepy. I don't like this feeling at all. I feel as if my body has shut down with no energy even to move a finger. Early onset of summer has not helped much. I need a break and I can't go before April 2008. Oh no! That's when I am shifting to a new apartment!
In a way, I am stuck in this quagmire for some time now. And you are stuck with my posts of self pity!
*update(16/03/2008): I am well and thriving!
