Unemployment is the new Staycation

Unemployment is weird.  It’s been many years since I haven’t had a job and if I wasn’t so sure I am going to get a positive callback later this week, I would be a little more freaked about the situation.

Last week was very bizarre and I didn’t quite know what to do with myself during the days.  I was very happy to get two calls about possible jobs.  One interview did not happen at all and I went to the second one on Friday.  The interview went well and I expect to hear back this week about a job that starts on the First of June.  In the meantime, I am still sending resumes out because, you never know.

The weekend was great.  I was able to meet up with some really good friends who I missed during my time in California.  Bobaloo and I went down to the Buffalo Rose on Saturday to listen to a band and meet up with friends.  There were all sorts of folks (of the biker variety) that we haven’t seen since before the winter.  It was like everyone came out of hibernation.

Yesterday was a lazy day, but amidst the movie-watching and lounging I was able to finish a good book (for the first time in months) and get together a plan on what to do on a day to day basis until I find a job.

Today, kicked off a new start for me.  I started another book, went for a jog, did some chores, sent some resumes, watered the plants, sat outside, and even watched some Tyra.  Her show sucks.

Here’s to a well-rounded day without a dime spent!

  1. It's amazing how you can fill a day with nothing special but still be totally satisfied with the end result. Good luck with the job search!


Hey you! Got somethin' to say?
