Enclothed Cognition; It’s like Magic!

My jet lag is finally over! Wahoo! It lasted for a good ten days. Today I feel much more like myself. I'm back in my body. My head is clearer, I'm more focused and I'm more optimistic.

Not my first rodeo!

I've been home for about five days now. The trip home was long and exhausting and the jet lag has been brutal. I keep falling asleep around 7pm and waking up at 3am.

The Old City Part 2

The visa interview. The last step in getting a green card to the US. For us, that interview was last week at the US Consulate in Jerusalem. I was pretty bummed out when we arrived and I wasn't allowed to go in. It hurt a lot to not be by his side. Instead I sat… Continue reading The Old City Part 2
