entry arrow11:27 AM | Much-Needed Rest

My body just wanted to rest. Tried waking up early yesterday to work, just to stave off the depression I knew was coming after staging two big events. But by noontime, while at Bricks trying to do things, I was a wreck — my body giving out, not even a brief nap right on my table could help. I decided to go for a two-hour massage, and that invigorated me for a bit. I met my mother for snacks at the new Nip & Nosh at Rob. I went briefly to the closing program of 6200 PopUp. I tried to pamper myself by having dinner with Renz and his mom at Mang Kaloy and then watching Thor: Love and Thunder, which I found fun but slight — my least favorite Taika Waititi project. And then the malaise returned in full vengeance. By the time I went to bed at around 10:00 PM, which was so early for me, my body was ready. I slept the moment my head touched the pillow. After more than two months of endlessly doing things, my body just wanted to rest.
