Tired, but in a fairly content mood the last few days. Not motivated though. :P

Felt okay yesterday (the 17th) and felt fantastic today! Woke up feeling alert, energized and motivated. I got a lot done today :) Oh well, tomorrow morning I have a meeting with my advisor which is sure to take the wind out of my sails...

Stayed late at school last night, at school again today. Not good mood, feel like crying. But must work. Hate grad school.

Okay today. Not great. But okay. I feel like the darkness is lurking underneath a veneer of sanity, but that's okay, I can function like this.

Not feeling good. I was okay until yesterday late afternoon, when my mood started to seriously decline for no reason. I cried a lot and had to take a small Klonopin dose to sleep. The mood has continued today and I don't know why. It's been a long, long time since I felt THIS bad, and it scares me. It seemed to have come out of nowhere. I guess I need more healthy food, sleep, and exercise? I have definitely been neglecting those things.

April 2Nd And 3Rd, 2011

Didn't "work out" on my elliptical this weekend, but went for a long walk today (gorgeous weather here! beautiful sunshine). Feeling okay but unmotivated to do homework, because it feels like summer and I just want to play outside :P

Been exercising and taking my tyrosine regularly, and I feel good today (and that's no joke)!

Took the weekend off and did no school work. I needed that. But I still feel cognitively slow and sluggish and drained. I think I need some exercise :\

A little better today, slightly less exhausted/burned out. Continuing to get back on track with the tyrosine.

I remembered my L-tyrosine this morning and at lunch and I think it helped! Placebo or effect or no, I don't care - I feel more awake and motivated today and I'll take it! :)

Somehow I made it through the long weekend of research - it actually went well for the first time - but am now exhausted. Haven't been able to work much for the last 3 days. I think I need to take my l-tyrosine again (been neglecting it) to replenish my dopamine.

Have been feeling very tired and gray every single day. I'm totally burned out and that's not a good way to feel since my research trip starts tomorrow. I don't feel depressed, but I seriously need a break. In the last 6 weeks I've had exactly one day where I did no school work at all...

Yesterday sucked but I gave my first full length lecture today. I was terrified but it went well :) and now I feel a little more energized/motivated.

Worn out from working all weekend. Feel burned out and unhappy rather than refreshed. Not a good start to the week, but we'll see how the day goes.

Talk went okay! I am absolutely terrified to the point of feeling physically ill about a research trip I have to take in 2 weeks. Such trips have historically gone very, very badly for me and left my advisor very angry with me (despite the fact that he does not help me prepare my samples for these trips). So last night I cried hysterically about that for a while and today I am predictably feeling panicky and helpless. Oh, graduate school.

Feel okay, relatively content despite the amount of work I need to do. I took last night off from homework which helped :) and also went for a walk.

Feel blah. I think I need to get back into my exercise routine that I've dropped for the past month or so. I think that will help.
