The sun may be shining and the flowers erupting in colorful explosions right and left, but instead of prancing around outdoors with happy feet and bouncy legs I'm spending my hours with clogged-up sinuses in front of a computer screen, frantically working on things I thought I wouldn't have to worry about for a few weeks.
Sure, I take breaks—lovely little breaks for futile attempts to rid my nose of blood, goo, and the occasional pieces of brain matter.
I'm tired, stressed out, disillusioned, disappointed, and generally disgruntled.
However, I'm not broken. Give me a few days and I'll be back in business—my usual cheery self (hah!). Until then:
