Feeling a Little.... Blah....

Sometimes I get into a little funk where I just feel "blah". I look around and there are tons of things that I need to be doing. 

Deep house cleaning, school work, working on my novel, blogs to write, American Heritage Girl plans to make, books to read and reviews to write. It's all there and it all needs to be done. But, I just don't feel like doing it. 

Here lately, I am in one of those funks.

This is what my current WIP folder looks like:
They are all in various stages of development. Some actually have word counts. Others are just blurbs, notes, and muse photos. 

I currently have 165 books on my TBR ARC list. That number doesn't even touch the books I have BOUGHT to read.

I just finished my first class of my Masters. As long as I get the scores on my final week of assignments that I think I will get, I should have an A in that class. My second class began yesterday. And I seriously took a break from school yesterday. All those assignments will be waiting for me today, right? 

Occasionally I get in these moods where I get it into my mind that I want to do something. During my last class, I did all of my current week assignments in one day. One day! Right now, all I want to do is work on my novel. I want to spend every waking moment writing. But, I can't. Because all of these other things get in my way. The result? I feel blah. I just decide to do NOTHING since I can't do what I WANT to do. 

Any tips on how to get out of those "blah" moods?

Forcing myself to get started on something usually knocks me out of those moods.

Or having a few nights where I go to bed early.

I pick the task I want to do the least. Having the worst behind me is very motivating.
