So, I just spent over thirty hours bouncing between airplanes, TSA agents, and overpriced sandwiches. I am beyond jet-lagged and I can't be bothered to know what time zone I'm in anymore. I don't think you understand: I just time-traveled. I left Australia and arrived in the U.S. on the same day but it took more than twenty-four hours. I spent so much time on airport floors taking Buzzfeed quizzes to find out what my star sign says about my taste in Disney princesses, and I said yes to one too many complimentary glasses of wine. In retrospect, the whole thing was kind of a blur. Like a night out, except I was ninety-five percent sober and three-million percent over it. And, because I spent so much of that time binge-watching Bojack Horseman on Netflix, this article seemed fitting.
