It is now 6 am here in Boston, my hair and makeup are done and I am ready for my day…even though it doesn’t begin until 10.
I just got back from visiting Dubai and India and man am I jet lagged. The trip itself was better than what I expected.
I was very nervous for the trip because I knew of my pestering relatives who would ask the usual questions they ask a girl past the age of 20: “So when do you plan to get married?” “Have you put on some weight?” “Don’t you want to have kids??”
Meh. But my parents were very supportive and helped me answer those questions.
It was also VERY hot in both countries. And AC was very limited.
Aside from these, it was nice to see my family. I got to see my grandparents, my aunts and uncles, and my cousins who I have been missing for a long time.
I also had delicious food that took me back to my childhood.
While I was away, I briefly chatted with “Prince Player”. This was new. The last time I went to Dubai and India, it was when I was oh…18. I was very heartbroken and listened to “Wanted You More” by Lady Antebellum on repeat for the 19 hour flight. I met “Prince Player” only a few weeks later when college began. I have been to India since but never spoke with him while I was away.
This time I did and I was happy!
The flight was long as usual. On the way there, it was alright because I was excited and the time went by quickly. On the way back, it was terrible because I missed my family and the uncomfortable feeling of sitting for 19 hours really got to me.
So overall, my trip was fine but the jet lag…is severe.
It is so hard being back. Yes, it is so nice to have air conditioning, pizza, Starbucks, and Dunkin Donuts again.
BUT I CAN’T STOP SLEEPING. And then being awake at odd times.
As if God heard my concerns, we had a snow day yesterday! It was supposed to be my first day back but I got an extra day to rest 🙂 Thank you blizzard ❤
But that is not the case today. I have class and other important events today.
Jet lag is a terrible, terrible, terrible feeling. I know I have experienced it before but I feel the older we get, the harder it is. Your tips are greatly appreciated ❤
