In which John looks like an elderly porcupine and considers the way burnout seems to arrive all at once, just like hairmergencies.

I do feel really overwhelmed and a bit burnt out at the moment, but I also feel tremendously supported and know that I can take breaks as and when needed. Also, I am aware of the fact that I feel this way going into the Project for Awesome every year, so I should not be surprised. And yet somehow I always am! Also, although I do have anxiety problems, I don't want y'all to worry that this is part of a larger thing. I am just stressed out because too much is happening, not because I am falling into the tightening gyre! (...I think!)
