One Week In | London 2016

London Bridge

One week later, and I’m still alive! It’s been quite the adventure trying to get used to being in a different time zone (+5 hours). I still can only sleep a maximum of three hours per night. My roomie suggests I take Melatonin; but will it actually help this level of sleep-deprivation?

I bought a desk fan and foam topper for my bed that I’m still waiting for in the mail. Hopefully this combination will help, in addition to fairy lights, as I also have this same set-up at home.

Restoring a sense of normality is crucial for me at this point. It’s been a mixed experience so far, as this is my first time living on my own, far from my friends and family (in Ottawa, Canada).

All of the other interns have lived on their own before, so I seem to be the one having the most difficulty adjusting. I love the city itself, however there is a sense that something is missing. Perhaps sleep!

This past weekend was a fun break from my internship; check out the pictures I’ve taken so far! Many more to come.

If you have any tips for jet lag or missing home, please let me know!

  1. Enjoyed the post. Unfortunately I don’t have advice on sleeping better as I sleep poorly in my own house! But in terms of missing home, the key is to just keep having fun where you are. One week isn’t a very long time, your connections where you are will get stronger and you’ll start to feel that you are home (a second home).
    Good luck, look forward to reading more.
