I’m back from the other end of the ocean, but not entirely.

Physically my body is in North America, but my brain is still operating on a European time zone. So after waking up around 5:30 this morning, refreshed and fully awake, I showered, took the dog for an early morning walk, spent four hours looking at my courses for next year, watched some tennis, caught up on all of the news and sports that I missed in the past few weeks, sent out some emails, read some video game reviews, played some video games, spent half an hour on hold with Air Canada trying (successfully) to locate the luggage that Iberia lost, helped workers deliver a new kitchen table, washed dishes, wrapped up an NHL-related game that I organize every year, and typed up this brief blog.

…and it’s only 3:30. Now that’s productivity.

Granted, there’s no way in hell I’ll be able to stay awake past 10:30 tonight, but it still feels good.
