I find I like being unemployed… At least right now.
I can do things I haven’t been able to do in, like, forever.
Like read. And I enjoy reading. Fiction, non-fiction, fantasy – I read a lot and have a lot of books.
I can lost in reading. Hours go by. I can get comfortable in my bed or on the couch with a book, read for a while, take a nap, and then read some more… It’s like heaven!
The other thing I REALLY like is that there’s no rushing around. No where to be. When I was working I was ALWAYS rushing around.
Up by the clock, out by the clock, everything by a clock. Now I forget there’s a clock. I often forget what day it is! I really like that too.
And I can watch movies or shows on my streaming device for hours or spend time just hanging out with my pets. It’s my time, for a change, and it’s really cool!
It can’t last forever – I do search for job positions regularly during the week and, at some point, something will coalesce and then I’ll be back rushing around, living life by the clock again…
But, in the meantime, I’m just enjoying being unemployed, kicking back, chilling, getting some “me” time…
