I’m loogy today. Doing tai chi — actually, getting up and getting moving — was tremendously challenging. I’ve been working hard for the last few days to write comments, create reports about my students, and complete grading… and I finished about 5pm yesterday. Then I went to the theater, and I didn’t get home until 10 pm after days and days of being up until midnight or later. I’m running on not-much-left.
I’m grateful that a number of big projects are finished, though:
- I’m now definitively in year 4 of tai chi
- The design lab is finished
- The wizard of Oz head is finished
- Grades and comments are finished (for a little while)
- Major training activities for the Bardic grade in my druid order are done.
That’s a lot that I’ve finished just in the the two weeks before, and two weeks after, Equinox. A lot accomplished. Tonight, I compete in my Toastmasters club’s Area Spring Speaking Contest. Woo! And then I get to sleep for most of the weekend. In honesty, I feel like I’ve been suffering a low-to-mid-grade cold without fevers or stuffiness.Not exactly body aches, but genuine weariness.
The result was a tai chi practice that was… somewhat less than ideal. But it still got done. It amuses me that there are still days when I have a really poor practice like today — and actually I’ve had quite a few of them in a row, now. But that sooner or later, I’ll find a way to make it work for me again.
