Toggling Between Two Time Zones at 3 AM

It's been six nights since I have been physically back but yet my mind and my body are still somewhere between Manila and here.
Pieces of me are trailing behind--begging for more time to absorb those 12-13 days away.

I thought that my "new and improved" self could work quickly through the time change.
I was wrong. I can't "zen" my way through jet lag.
I had forgotten how painful it is.
And confusing.
Especially after a trip with non-stop mental and sensory stimulation.
