10 Things Every Jet Lagged Person Can Relate To

In my previous article, I mentioned that I traveled from New Jersey to Mumbai, India. Although I'm so excited to be back in India, my first week here has been pretty slow, thanks to jet lag! If you are a frequent flyer and struggle with jet lag, here are 10 things you can relate to!


1. You have limited human interactions because you are always sleeping when everyone is awake, and awake when everyone is sleeping

2. You eat at odd hours. Cereals at 3 a.m. anyone?

3. You feel tired at all times

4. All your friends are tired of hearing you complain about being jet lagged

5. You cancel most of your plans because you are either tired or asleep

6. No amount of alarm clocks or family members can wake you up

7. When you want to sleep at night, no matter what you do you cannot sleep

8. You constantly keep texting all of your friends, "Are you up?" in the middle of the night when there's nothing to do

9. All your friends are patiently waiting for you to get over your jet lag so that they can finally start making plans with you

10. When you are finally over jet lag, its already time to take another flight and go back!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
