Blog #30: About Jetlag and WritingTo see all of Bobbie's Family Girl Blogs, click on this link:
I always hear a lot of stories about people having to cope with jetlag, and all the little tricks one can do to overcome it. Well, did you know, besides being a wonderful website, BCTS is also good for avoiding jetlag...
There is exactly thirteen hours time difference between the local time in Manila and the time back home. So, knowing this, Moe and I came prepared. All throughout our flight (there were four connecting flights, by the way... grrr...), Moe and I decided not to sleep. That way, our internal clocks would find it easier to adjust.
Moe wasn't able to, though (poor dear), but I was able to. What I did was I finished off a little story I had in the back burner since last December. Wonder of wonders, I did finish it, and I didn't fall asleep...
So now, it"s nine in the morning here and I find myself almost adjusted to local time. Anyway, we're straightening out the new place a bit, and at about twelve noon, my driver will be coming over and driving me to the new office. (I'm real nervous!)
So, wish me luck at the new job, and I hope you enjoy my story, "The New Agent." ( http://bigclosetr.us/topshelf/fiction/34511/new-agent )
