it'll take me several days at least to recover from DC. i woke up with aches all over my body and shuffled slowly around the house with alternating limps. taking a shower, i noticed bruises underneath my armpits from carrying around my heavy backpack all day yesterday. dehydrated, i had a hangover-like headache for the rest of the day and bright lights made it worse. at least my feet don't hurt anymore now that i'm not standing for long periods of time. i think it's ironic that i travel through southeast asia for months without a single complaint about body aches or feet issues but i go to DC for a few days with all sorts of pains.
i was scheduled to work but i was in no mood; all i wanted to do was sort through the 2300+ photos i took. the day went fast - i didn't even realize it was over now that we're in daylight saving mode. some memory arrived for me earlier in the week; i cracked open my mac and installed it in under a minute. my mother came over with some dinner and we went to the supermarket to buy some groceries before she left.
the weekend is coming up but all i want to do is lie in bed and watch television and sleep. the next few days will be my vacation from vacation.
