I just realized that it was a full moon on Monday, which partially explains why my week has been so messed up. The last full moon, there were a couple of days when I just felt totally weird and couldn't accomplish anything... then I realized it was a full moon, and it all made sense somehow. I never really noticed the cycles of the moon before I moved up here... working with young children last year, I definitely noticed something going on around full moons. Maybe it's the very high tides in Iqaluit (second highest in Canada, I'm told).
There's clearly only one solution: Blow up the moon.
