Overwhelmed & Out of Rhythm

I'm in a funk. I'm sure you get those days...or weeks...or months. I'm there. My fall semester started over a month ago and I still haven't settled into a rhythm of life. I can't quite put my finger on why either. I find myself unmotivated in nearly every aspect of my world and badly want to work my out of this conundrum.

For weeks now I've realized my desire to read and write and blog but have failed to do much of any of those things. I've had things to say and stories to tell but lacked the energy to make them public. I keep telling people that since we didn't have any break after summer semester, my mind took its own break to rest and recover. I'd say its time to snap back into intellectual action though.

I've got a huge paper due Thursday for my Church History class and then a week and a half off for Reading Week. The 2nd weekend of Reading Week I'll be heading to Oregon for four days of rock climbing, so hopefully this relaxation will snap me out of my funk and back into a desire to learn and grow and experience the fullness of life that was so present last year. Lord help me.


  1. I have felt out of rhythym all fall as well. Keep on keeping on!

  2. Dude, I totally know where you're coming from. I've been going to community college for three years now and still haven't completed a fall semester --- this will be my first. My counselor calls it Seasonal Affective Disorder (a condition in which the weather affects your moods). You're in Seattle, right? Perhaps the dreary skies have something to do with it. Just stay strong --- I'll be praying for you.
