Reprieve

I'm feeling better now. Not coincidentally, I've turned in my take-home final (only a day late) and almost completed the grading ordeal (11+ hours just to score the final).

I suppose that I don't handle stress well; I'm tempted to nihilism of a sort. If life has no meaning, then my failure (or fear of failure) doesn't seem so bad, relatively speaking. Yes, I'm aware that's not a very wise coping mechanism.

There may also be a few other causes at play, but I'm not the most coherent in my thinking right now, so those hypotheses shall wait for another day.
