Crashing. Crashing hard

I must have been wound up tight for the last three months, because after finishing grading yesterday, I thought I’d be able to relax and do some fun productive stuff. Nope. Brain melty. Joints achey. Everything hurts, but simultaneously so sluggish the pain can’t get too acute.

Oh well, the student complaints about their grades are already trickling in, so the tension will tighten back up to normal soon.

    I’ve found that hemp oil tends to help take the worst edge off of my osteoarthritis pain.
    Of course, it’s forbidden by the DoD…

    I think you will find that is the onset of old age, and it is all downhill from there I’m afraid. But cheer up…

    I find cannabis and cartoons help me when I get like that. Might as well finish melting that brain before it solidifies again.

    Gah, can’t teach some students anything. 2020 has taught us that if you’re going to complain about results at the end, you have to start at least 3 months beforehand. Just tell ’em too little too late :)
