T’s 6th Oct.

Feeling snowed under (is this how you say?). Trying to keep up my boundaries. No time for gym in the end today. No time for a lot of things.Not good. Umph

But then, the way I draw a balance in the evenings is completely different from how I draw it when I post in the mornings… I’m an early morning person, and in the mornings everything seems: easy, doable, piece of cake. In the evenings I have this sort of brain fog and think in circles, know I should be doing this and that and feel unable to even move a muscle. Posting the plan for tomorrow in the evenings helps me calm and reassess a coherent perspective a bit. But you might find it sounds a bit too negative. Don’t worry. I’m my usual self.

Plan for tomorrow:

  1. PRin report
  2. lesson MPhil
  3. lesson FM
  4. first draft ESMP talk
  5. deal with the kitchen mess
  6. early night? healthy meals? gym? uhm.. yawn…

  1. I’m an early morning person, too, and feel just as you described in the evening.

    • I feel detached from my mind, as if it were at a huge distance. I’m fine if I go out and can easily be social and relax, and even be witty. But if I try to do something, and organize thoughts, I feel powerless.

  2. Snowed under is absolutely right. Feeling similar myself!

    • I know it is right, but I don’t quite get what it actually means. Does it mean feeling as if an immense heap of snow has been falling and covering you completely? because all I can picture instead is as if I were laying on top of the snow, which I don’t see how it could be negative. I guess my problem is with understanding who’s actually “under” in this expression, whether it’s me or the snow. But then, if it means “busy”… why the snow?!?! Puzzling (and I know it must sound all very weird to you, sorry, one doesn’t really question the bee’s knees, so why questioning snowed under? no reason, really, I shouldn’t).

      • Oh, now I understand the reason for this idiom http://www.bloomsbury-international.com/en/student-ezone/idiom-of-the-week/1307-to-be-snowed-under.html
        The important thing is: one can’t leave home because of snow, can’t move, can’t do anything or go anywhere. So it’s not really a way to say that one is just overwhelmed, but it’s used as an apology to decline invitations and such. Ok, right.

      • No, these are great questions – and it’s always interesting to go work out where phrases you’d use without thinking actually come from! “Snowed under” is, I believe, from the idea of not being able to get out of your house because it’s snowed so much that the house is literally under snow (maybe if you’d built in a valley? Hmm).

    • BTW, sorry you are feeling like this as well, but the weekend is approaching fast! Sending you rinvigorating thoughts, at the best of my abilities. 🙂
