We meet again, Jetlag.
Though I am surprised you didn’t kick in right away like last time, I’m grateful that you toned it down a bit. This is most likely due to the routine we have to follow from quarantine because let’s face it, if it wasn’t for the schedule, you would have taken over big time.
Jetlag, you’re half winning this battle right now because I’m feeling your energy (or lack thereof) as I’m writing this. And yes, I wanted to wait for this day to write about the theme for today’s letter on the exact same day so that I can be genuine about what I feel when posting it.
I’m rambling, but with my mind begging to go to lalaland, I want to quickly “send” this letter out to you.
As we’re nearing the end of my second day in a different time zone, I think I’m winning over you, Jetlag. Granted I did finally get some shut-eye by 9 PM last night and woke up around 3-4 AM this morning, but I’m going to stick with me just being tired and going to bed early and waking up early.
Yes, let’s go with that.
It’s not you, Jetlag.
It was my 24+hours of airplanes and layovers that made me close my eyes at the times they did.
I don’t even know where I’m going with this letter. I’m asking myself why’d I had to wait for this day to write it when I knew that I’d be tired from my trip.
Jetlag, I know this really isn’t on you, but my muscles are also aching so bad right now. It’s most likely all that walking and running I had to do in that last airport.
Oh, on the bright side, you are kind of helping me catch up on sleep, movies, and TV shows. With your letter being the only one that wasn’t written in advance (as of this moment), I don’t have to worry about writing a bunch of other letters as I was transiting time zones.
So, thank you.
I think I’ll end the letter here and when I look back at this in the future, I can see myself rolling my eyes and shaking my head at my lack of sleep self.
I need to get used to you if I want to keep traveling to different time zones.
Good night, Jetlag.
