I'm feeling nostalgic today for a whole host of reason. Facebook informs me (via the official Star Trek page's status updates) that Star Trek Voyager premiered today sixteen years ago. Sixteen years. Wow. I got into the fandom later than that, obviously, but it still boggles the mind how long ago it all began. And Xena. The final Xena con was today. I'm sad to have missed it. According to xena_and_gabby's status update, Lucy and Renee kissed? People who were there, please oblige me with pics. Immediately. :-P
Work started again today. The beginning of the school year is an interesting time. I always dread going back, but there's a wild energy to it once I'm there. I feel pretty lucky to have a job that I care about, actually.
I've adjusted to the jetlag pretty well this time, coming back. The trick is to set your watch to destination time as soon as you get on the plane, and refuse to think in terms of where you just left. Eat your dinner like it's breakfast, and stay up all night watching movies. Then try to sleep in the middle of what used to be the afternoon, fail, watch more movies. Arrive back home in the morning, then stay up all day until the sun goes down before you finally let yourself rest. It works.
Now I have an hour to spend on whatever I like before I need to sleep. Time feels like such a luxury right now.
