The Funk Slump

School has been requiring lots of attention. Life has been requiring lots of attention. And I have been feeling pretty awful. I’ve been getting daily headaches. Daily bad headaches.

Mom is leaving to head back to CA tomorrow… actually, today… in, like, 5 1/2 hours. And I’m not sleeping. Oops. I told her I’d make her some maps. So what do I do?

The Crazy Symptoms of Pain Killers, Exhaustion, and Life

Lately, I have had some very odd symptoms. They aren’t really “new” per say, but they are very irritating. Thursday and Friday I was extremely shaky. I do get shaky quite often, but not like this.
