My Reverse Cultural Shock - 1

How hard can it be to get over a reverse cultural shock? Well, learning more about the reverse cultural shock kind of made it a bit hard to get over it. Dr. Bates from the American University gave us a lecture on how to deal with the reverse cultural shock, and he made it clear that there was no cure for it, but that it was not a disease.

Today is my fourth day back home, and I'm still jet lagged. I tried all artificial means to recover from the jet lag, but have not succeeded yet. I'm still on it. I slept only for one hour at night, and was up and wide awake by 4:00 am. It is 2:11 am in the night, where I have traveled from, and it's 11:12 am in Pakistan right now, as I write this blog post. It will of course be published a little later than that, once I'm done writing.

This is my first blog post from home, and after a long long time. I was quite busy with other blogs while I was away, so haven't posted anything over here. Well, better late then never. I think I am going to start posting here more often.
