I don’t usually have a hard time adjusting to the time change. It always feels a little strange the first day or two after we spring forward or fall back, but it’s kind of a nice change of pace most of the time. This time, though, I’ve been feeling sluggish, tired, unmotivated, bored, and irritable ever since Sunday, when we turned back the clocks. I don’t know if it really is the time change, but that’s the only thing I can pin point that changed, other than my mood. The days at work drag, tutoring seems interminable, I nap in the middle of the day and am still exhausted at night, I go to bed early and still can’t seem to wake up in the morning. I’m irritable, bored, and just want to crawl into a dark cave and sleep. Even my art has been difficult and more annoying than fun. So today I decided to just draw how I feel, and came up with this dark, sluggish picture, created with messy, smeary kids’ oil pastels. Now I’m going to crawl into bed.
