When you’re stuck at home every day, “relaxing activities” get old VERY quickly. I don’t think I’ve ever had cabin fever this badly…each day is starting to feel like the same thing over and over. Job hunting and applying to anything I see, pool on the one out of 7 days the sun is out and it’s not raining, reading a book, watching tv or a movie, gym, cooking, writing…my apartment is starting to feel like a prison.
Recently I haven’t felt sad so much as aggravated and fidgety. I am used to running myself ragged, so I suppose that on the positive end of things, I am the best-rested I’ve been in a decade. However, I am also not accustomed to not having an interesting life filled with some sort of adventure. If anyone reads this and has suggestions of ways to entertain myself that don’t involve spending money, please feel free to comment!
Day 21 & 22 of Unemployment: Right after I posted on Tuesday, I received a call for an interview at the business I mentioned. I completed it this morning…I think that it went well, but the ladies who interviewed me were impossible to read. If I get chosen as a final candidate, I will get called back for a second interview in two weeks. Two weeks is an eternity to me at the moment!
I will hope for the best and continue to keep looking and applying. I miss being productive very badly. I’m trying to switch up my routine today and go to the gym later at night. In the meantime, I simply can’t sit still. Perhaps next I need to start my own YouTube channel and sing covers of other people’s songs like millions of other people are doing.
I hate feeling like I’m wasting my time, so my next project is to find more to do and take advantage of my circumstances. “Tomorrow’s way too far away, and we can’t get back yesterday.” I may never have this much free time ever again, so I need to figure out a way to utilize it!
