One of my biggest pet peeves isfeeling hopeless. It comes on when you have a big thing due, and then you get it done. Then you feel dry. Like there's nothing left to be excited about or feel good about. And you don't know what to do to shake it. You just have to let it pass. At least now I know that this feeling does pass. I just have to wait it out.
I think times like this I need to read a book or a magazine or go to a movie. And do absolutely nothing to try to fix it or create anything.
