A-ha!

File Under: Obvious

So it turns out that a week's vacation -- especially if you end it with a three-day weekend to ease back in -- does wonders for feeling enthusiastic and motivated at work rather than stressed-out and overwhelmed.

Who'da thunk it?

In probably-but-not-certainly unrelated news, I've been trying to avoid carbs at lunch, and have been getting to the end of the day without feeling starving-hungry and low-blood-sugar headachey/woozy on the bus ride home. It's possible that it's because I haven't been expending lots of energy on hard thinky work, but I think it's probably more due to shunning rice, pasta, and bread in any significant quantities. So that's interesting.
