Call it a rut. Call it a slump. Call it a bad day. Sometimes there is just something off for a day or maybe even a week. I have been in one of those, can't-shake-it ruts for a week or so. In the scheme of things my problems are rather trivial, my computer died and I had to buy a new one, work has been pretty stressful and tense recently, I'm coming off a month of traveling non-stop etc. But still, these things put together have affected my day-to-day mood and I don't quite feel like my usual self.
