Brain, Y U No Work?

So my mind refused to work today. After a deadline long-work on Friday, my brain like simply wanted to say, "I need a day off." I sat on the computer all day long, but was only able to scribble some useless words which ended up in recycle bin.

Friday night I had a nightmare, which was bad enough to woke me up at 2 a.m. and kept me laying on my bed until Subuh. Then I prayed and went back to sleep and woke up at 10. I had a cereal with cold milk for breakfast then pour myself a nice cup of Aceh coffee. Then I called my husband for about one hour and a half.

Then I turned on the computer. I was supposed to write exam for my students' mid-test next month, and an abstract plus a list of 10 books for my reading course (a pre-thesis) and send it to my professor. But I was not able to do any of that. I tried to work on some short stories instead but no plots arrived.

Minutes later, I gave up. I took time to pamper myself at the salon and read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon and listen to sad music all day. And tonight I decided to write on this blog, feeding you guys with some unimportant perks of me being unproductive. Sorry :')

Have you guys experienced the same thing? When you just could not use your brain to think about something that requires deep thinking? When your brain wanted to consume nice songs and light stories but not materials like academic stuffs? And it doesn't want to produce anything at all?

I have. There goes my Saturday, and I do hope my Sunday would be a bit more productive. Cheerio.
