I feel like I’m busier now that I’m unemployed than before when I was working 40 hours a week plus doing freelance work in the evenings.
I’ve been going to the gym a lot more in the past week. My goal this week is to go for 3 classes. (So far I’m on track – I’ve been to cycling and a water aerobics class.) The classes are taking my mind off of other things. Like the fact that I don’t have a full-time job.
More people are coming to me for freelance projects. It’s fun and a little bit overwhelming, to be honest. I’ve never had to use my Life Planner more than I’ve used it in the past three weeks.
For the first week and a half I had all of the motivation in the world to send my resume out. Three weeks in and I’m mentally exhausted. I *think* I’ve figured out what I want to do when I grow up. Think. Still not 100% sure.
I’ve been avoiding dealing with my 401k and retirement that I have to roll over or be penalized if they’re cashed out (not dealt with). I really should do that this week. Maybe I should add it to my Life Planner?
My house is a wreck following Sesame Street-palooza 2013. Despite not working, I’ve had so many meetings with clients and potential clients and the house has been ignored.
Being unemployed is a full-time job. Without (health) benefits.
The positive side? I get to take this guy out of daycare whenever I want so we can play.
Playing is important. And this boy believes in more play, less work.
