Useless Day

by wjw on December 4, 2008

I can generally count on having one Useless Day each week. This week it was yesterday, Tuesday.

On Useless Day I can’t seem to get anything accomplished. I try to work, but nothing happens, or at any rate nothing good. My brain doesn’t seem to function very well. When I try to accomplish anything outside work, I generally fumble it, or I get stuck on hold forever, or I forget something crucial and have to start over.

The problem with Useless Day is that I never know when it’s going to fall. I generally don’t realize that it’s Useless Day until it’s nearly over, and I look at my word total and see that it sucks, or that everything I’ve written needs to be thrown out and written over.

If I only knew when Useless Day was going to happen, I’d spend the day playing computer games, or I’d go to the movies. But I never know in advance. I’m too useless on Useless Day to know that I’m useless.

Does this happen to the rest of you, or is it just me?

I have entire useless WEEKS. I beat myself up over them. But in the long run, everything seems to work out okay. So I try really hard not to beat myself up.

I’m not always successful.

For some reason, that only ever seems to happen to me Monday through Friday during the day. Hmmm. Wonder what could be causing that?
