Everyone's got secrets, dirty little secrets, have I got one on you...

I keep telling myself it's one small task after another small task and soon it will all be done, but God it takes it out of you. I have to do this stupid assessment piece tomorrow that involves me teaching a 10 minute lesson to adult students, whilst three of my fellow pre-service teachers each have their own ten minutes, and in the end it's supposed to be some kind of cohesive whole. Because in the real world? That's going to happen all the time.

But no, Loz. No. Don't be so negative! It's not a stupid construction of an assessment piece! Put on your bright lopsided smile and cheerful demeanour! It's time to be happy! And focussed! And motivated!

I've been sleeping more than usual again. This is my body's coping mechanism for stress and depression. I think the stress has steadily been building but I've been wilfully ignoring it through fangirling practices. At the moment I'm unbelievably cranky, so it's obviously manifesting itself in those multitudinous ways it so loves to.

Just need to keep telling myself to calm down and take everything step by step.
