Ever had one of those days where the sun was shining, everything seemed lined up for success, and you were just unable to get things moving, just anchored to whatever couch/bed/piece of floor you were lying on? Kind of my mood/affect today. The temperature is a gorgeous mid 70s, a lovely light breeze is blowing from the south, and....blah.
I'm going to drag myself to the gym in a few minutes. At least I think I will. I intend to, anyway. And I'd like to think that tonight, I'll go see my free Tuesday movie at the Michigan Theater (or perhaps at the State. I'm thinking Tully, with Charlize Theron, if I make it). But, really, the theme song for the day is "So", by Fates Warning, which starts out with the lines
Feeling so strong
I feel so inspired
Like a man with all the words
I could move the world
If I weren't so tired
Not sure why the malaise has settled in. I don't feel like I'm getting sick. Nothing has changed in terms of job search (which, granted, could be a reason). I didn't do anything strenuous over the last couple of days that might lead to this state of torpor.
Must slough off this ennui, break out of this motional slough (as opposed to the "E"motional one, that, to be honest, isn't really an issue, despite recent events), overcome the inertia keeping this way too fat body at rest and get it into motion and let that inertia roll on.
(Can you tell that I enjoy words with multiple meanings? Although, in this case, inertia is used in its body at rest tends to stay at rest, body in motion tends to stay in motion sense, so it doesn't fit the multiple meaning framework. The point is still true!)
