Today (11/4) was my first day back...I had been awake since 2 AM Monday morning (which is 2 PM Monday China time), so it was not much trouble getting to work on time.  However, I was stopped by a police officer less than a mile from home because I was speeding UP a hill -  yes, UP a hill.  She was very understanding and only gave me a warning.  We chatted a bit (after all, who is really alert at 6:30 AM?), and learned that we were familiar with each other through the IU School of Education - she had been a student in the Counseling Psychology program in the 90's.

It was great to return to work and see everyone.  I also had to make it through a stack of mail and get my mind wrapped around what needed to be done first.  Then, I had to teach a class that night at IU.  I dare say the students did not have me at my best, but they were all very understanding and tolerant of my sleepy state.  Class started at 5:30 PM and I woke up in class around 7:00 PM. 

I have a cold, so I'm hopeful that the cold medicine will make me sleepy at the right time to get my sleep-wake cycle back in order.  I know today is Monday, but it sure seems like Tuesday.  I guess I really was in the future and returned to the past.  Hmmm....so, I've seen and experienced the future.  With the changing role of China in our world, that may be more true than I realize!
