Okay fellow teachers, time for some serious honesty. I am a day behind on my Word Nerds book study post. I am sick, 100% out of commission. I have a horrible case of the summer guilt, a terrible funk that creeps up every summer, at least once and typically lasts a few days.
Symptoms: lack of motivation, disgust of self and everything one does, yoga pants or sweats, Netflix marathon, poor disposition or mood, no desire of normally enjoying people or things
Have you had a case of this too? I have had it before, but I swear this is as bad as it's ever been friends and I am not sure what to do. My to-do list keeps getting longer and longer and no matter how bad I might want to fight it, that clock and calendar keep on ticking and before I know it August 17th will be here. A part of me wants to sit like a bump on a log, feeling lazy, and doing nothing. Another part of me knows there is 8,000 plus things that I should be doing each day.
Just out of curiosity, am I alone out here? Does anyone else have a bad case of summer guilt? A desire to relax and do nothing that lasts way too long? Horrible guilt and depression that comes from knowing everything you should be doing? Or are you one who works all summer and doesn't even take a day to relax?
