Jet Lag: Travel’s Graceless Companion.

My internal clock is so phenomenally screwed up right now. The sun and I have been in a really awkward middle school dance since my arrival in China two days ago.

This morning I woke up around 2:30am and decided it’d be a good idea to get up. It wasn’t.

Dizzily, I went back to bed from 7 – 8am as the sun rose and then I collapsed into a weird half-nap from 3 to 6pm waking every nine minutes for just long enough to silence the angsty bleat of my alarm clock. Now it’s 11pm, the sun is hiding somewhere over Delaware, and darned if I’m not ready to start my day.

Jet Lag? why are you such a downer?

    I must be the wierd one, because I never have big issues with jet lag. I arrive so screwed up that I just go to sleep whenever and immediately I’m on the new schedule. Flying back I usually grab an extra 6 hours somewhere and within a couple days I’m good to go.
    And traveling to anywhere less than 8 hours off of normal I rarely even notice it much, other than a slightly shifted bedtime for a night or two.

    Well hey, at least you’ll be in meetings all day!
