What’s that thing where your brain is like “Even leisure is too much right now”? Whatever it is, it’s happening to me. The thought of crafting or reading or playing a video game is too much. So, I guess… Star Trek time?

@KimberlyHirsh This happens to me a lot. I used to room scroll but I’m off most socials now, so sometimes I’ll watch a Twitch stream or reruns of favorite shows. It stinks. Such a bad feeling.

@KimberlyHirsh Sorry you’re feeling this way Kimberly, I can relate to every bit of this. So difficult when you feel overwhelmed like this, I wish I knew what the answer was.

@KimberlyHirsh Thank god for Star Trek. I’m contemplating at watch-through of anything but Voyager. It’s like an old friend we can unwind with.

@odd May I recommend Star Trek?

@jeffmueller Favorite shows seem to fill this niche well. I did crosswords, just the right combo of relaxing and mind-engaging.

@pimoore Apparently for me the answer is crosswords and Star Trek.

@jean It really is. I also was just thinking about how I want to do more personal writing but I'm not even passionate about anything these days. Except Trek. And now I'm excited about the possibility of writing even more about Trek.

@KimberlyHirsh Yes! Star Trek. Sometimes the X-Files. 🤓

@jasonekratz Those are good choices! I loved Time Team. Also Bond and Hitchcock classics.

@Denny @kimberlyhirsh Love(d) the X-Files, and that’s disregarding the massive crush I had on Scully. 😏

@pimoore @Denny Had? Do crushes on Scully ever really fade?
