Well, after going out almost every night to perform for the past couple of weeks, I am finally exhausted. My resilience and my optimism kept telling me "No way! Keep truckin'! You won't get worn out" but alas, exhaustion snuck up behind me and knocked me out with a two by four. I woke up this morning at about 7am, read for about 20 minutes, and then began to practice some of my songs. After practicing, feeling like I had so much energy, I sat on the couch to watch an episode of Family Feud, and the next thing I know, I am groggily opening my eyes an hour and a half later. After "waking up," I proceeded to sit on the couch with my eyes half open, staring at the google homepage on my computer screen for the next hour. This is all including a good night of rest last night! As I began to type this blog post, I came to realize that this groggy feeling is probably going to hang out with me for the duration of today, and I'm okay with that haha.
Tomorrow though, it starts back up again! Paddy Reilly's open mic on Wednesday, I have a show at the Greenhouse Cafe on Thursday, and so on and so forth!
It's not out of the ordinary that my body and I have ongoing debates. My body usually has the most convincing, and most valid argument on why I should take it easy, and I'm that person who yells "YOU'RE WRONG" and keeps on going with my life. You know, like that stranger at a party who talks with you about deep social issues, and when you begin to have a solid point, they realize that the only way that they can hold any ground is if they are yelling how wrong you are, repeatedly? Yeah, that's us.
