So yesterday I talked about decompressing and what it looks like for me as well as how it’s an integral part of rest. If decompressing is largely focused on giving your brain a break on the amount of information it receives, recharging is filling up your emotional gas tank. It’s doing something that gives you energy again.
So this quarter has been tough. Not because Greek is exceptionally hard. Doing it as an intensive is just a bit demanding. Having one’s brain so thoroughly focused on one thing all the time drains you. As a result, you need to do to things to keep yourself happy and avoid insanity: decompress and recharge. I’m realizing these two are very different things.
Quick post to share a photo from Halloween. I reprised my second best received (I couldn’t find my Tigger suit) costume ever. I’m not sure where I was looking in the picture. Call me Ronald. P.S. If you didn’t read and comment on my blog post yesterday, do it. Right here.
