I’m pretty sure I know what happened: I overextended myself—emotionally, mentally, socially, empathically.
[All of this is about my experiences with depression. Everybody’s experiences are different; you may experience depression differently. I’m not telling you that you “should” feel this way if you are depressed, or that your depression “isn’t real” if you don’t feel this way, or anything like that. I’m mostly trying to explain my experiences of dealing with a chronic depressive disorder to people who haven’t.]
[Also, this is really, really long, which is why it’s behind a cut. Read at your own risk.]

This time of year is the most dangerous time for the turtles — a threatened species in New Jersey — as they slowly emerge from murky rivers and streams after their months-long hibernation and become more active in search of food and mates…. While raids on nests by foxes and raccoons take a heavy toll on young wood turtles, road kills and the illegal collection of turtles by people who take them from their natural habitat for use as pets are the largest threats for the adults, said a state biologist.

Ooooh. This is gorgeous.
Anyone who has watched Doctor Who knows this is true.

GET IT TOGETHER
The walking I grant you, but if a battle is taking five whole minutes, then yeah, it’s going to take at least three hours. O.O (1 round = 6 seconds, so 1 minute = 10 rounds, and 5 minutes = 50 rounds. For comparison, the longest single battle I can remember playing out was when our characters [a pack of mercenaries] attacked a Drow fortress, and that took two sessions (about ten hours) to play out, and was around 20-30 rounds.)
