Hello people, I hope no-one has been worried, I am still alive and breathing. I won’t lie and say I have been too busy, I have just been in my own headspace. It’s a weird place, often it’s rather chaotic and a bit fuzzy around the edges. I can’t believe where the time is gone. It just keeps slipping by. I’m not doing anything amazing, I have not yet found a job, and yes I have been looking, but I feel rather unmotivated to be completely honest. I have considered other options as well such as going back to school – you know one is never too old to learn new things. But I’m not sure. It seems I am in this weird place where I am either under or over experienced/educated depending on the job. It’s a strange place to be. Anyways I’m not worried about it, things will work out in the end, they always do. I’m resilient and I always bounce back, sometimes it just takes time.
“So how do unemployed people spend their days?” you may be asking yourself… it looks something like this, going to bed at midnight or later ever evening, and getting up around 9 most mornings (I am not exactly a night owl but I am not a morning person either). Colouring – I bought the “Secret Garden” colouring book for adults, organizing all the music on my phone so that it is all labeled correctly and filed under an appropriate genre etc., avoiding house cleaning until I jump up and go nuts as the mess is making me mental. living in my pajamas unless I have to go out. And for a bit I was going for walks every other day, but it has been too freaking hot so that died. Did I mention we have had a major heat wave and it’s only this past week that it has cooled down some – we were averaging 34 – 39 C everyday (now we are still in high 20’s).
On a huge plus since I have been unemployed I no longer am living off of antihistamines or my inhaler, in fact I have barely taken my inhaler at all. I wonder how much of it was stress and perhaps an allergy to bullshit??? And I’m eating better, and sleeping better, and I am all around happier.
So, apparently I have been here on WordPress for 3 years now!!!! Woohoo!!! 🙂 I believe I need to set myself a writing schedule while I’m not working and hopefully I will maintain it once I am again. We’ll see how that goes (Cue sarcastic and mocking laugh track here).
And just for fun here’s a blast from the past in honour of my title:
