Currently...{Jet lag Edition}

Good Morning! Happy St. Patrick's Day! It's currently 2:43 am and I am wide awake with jet lag! I got back from Dubai yesterday and, while I did just fine with jet lag while I was there (thanks to a very thorough schedule of jetlag training, which is actually a thing), I'm not doing so great now that I'm home, as evidenced by the fact that I'm awake right now.

I can't believe this is the first 'Currently...' post I'm sharing this year but I'm excited as I've always loved writing these posts! So, here goes:

Currently... wide awake and dreaming of my morning coffee which I'm holding off on consuming until it's an appropriate morning time for coffee.

Feeling... my incurable case of wanderlust setting in. Less than 24 hours after landing in the U.S., I'm already daydreaming about where I'll head next!

Reading... "Circling the Sun" by Paula McLain. My book club in DC is reading this book by the same author who wrote "The Paris Wife," which I didn't love. I'm finding "Circling the Sun" to be much more enjoyable.

Thinking about... how much I really loved Dubai this time around.

Watching... "Jane the Virgin." I started watching this show about a year ago and then never finished the first season. Last week, I got hooked on it again and haven't been able to stop watching since! I'm only on Season 2 but I forgot how much I enjoy this show. Growing up in a family that watched telenovelas, I appreciate the over-the-top, sensational drama, mixed with a very real, slightly stereotypical, yet inoffensive portrayal of a family of Latin American women.

Working on... Planes, Trains, and Running Shoes. One of my goals for this year was to get back to blogging regularly. I really love writing about my travels and chronicling the trials and tribulations of training and I haven't been able to make much time for that but, thanks to an insanely long flight this week, I've planned out most of my posts for the next two months and I'm pretty excited to carve out time for reading and writing posts again.

Planning... a lot of blog posts and my summer vacations!

Annoyed... that it's winter in DC. I'm not surprised by this, nor should I be, but considering I left DC with temperatures in the 70s, I wasn't thrilled to come home to snow on the ground and a 10-day forecast of winter temperatures.

Needing... to figure out what's wrong with my computer. I've been dealing with Tech Support for almost 3 weeks because I keep getting the blue screen of death. Luckily, I'm not losing anything but since I use my personal computer for life and for work, I really need it to be reliable and, considering it's only one year old, I'm a little worried.

Wanting... to get my home office in shape. It's functional as an office right now but I haven't hung anything on the walls and still have a lot of clutter in the room. I'm hoping to take some time for that this weekend.

Loving... being back home with my sweet pup.

Now, it's your turn:

What are your essentials for a home office?
How do you recover from jet lag?
Where's the next place you're traveling to?
