There isn't a lot to do when you don't have a job. It's ironic, you have all this time, but no motivation or funds. So far I've taken and given up jogging, meditating, and cleaning. I've alphabetized my cds and photographed my shoes. |
Job hunting is pretty soul-crushing, so I have to pad it within other tasks to lift my spirits. I like lists, especially when I can cross off things I've done. Each night I'll make a list of things to do the next day. I'll give myself a variety of tasks, knowing I won't accomplish that many, but I like the fact that I have some choice. And you can bet "get dressed" is usually on the list, not only as a reminder, but for the feeling of accomplishment if I get it done.
My daily list might have "get dressed" on it, along with "watch Ellen," and then I'll sneak in "job hunt," but cushion that with "eat a snack."
I just crossed "blog about something" off my list.
