Things To Do When You're Unemployed


Photo by HUBS, Charleston SC, July 2008

1) Look for work, don't find any, and then cry
2) Read a lot
3) Watch tv a lot
4) Watch a ton of movies
5) Go for photo walks
6) Write about being unemployed
7) Consider trying to publish what you wrote
8) Make plans and lists and enjoy crossing things off
9) Laundry
10) Clean the house
11) Go to the library
12) Cut pictures of things you can't afford out of magazines like you did when you were 20. Put the pictures on your magnet board
13) List what you're getting everyone for Christmas so you don't overspend
14) Commit to making some gifts to save $
15) Stare out the window and watch stray cats wander around the neighborhood. Smile when they look at you
16) Daydream
17) Exercise
18) Decorate for holidays
19) Window shop
20) Enter contests online and hope you win things
21) Dress up every now and then, so you feel like less of a bum
22) Laugh
23) Organize your digital photo files
24) Try selling things on ebay. When you realize the only person buying stuff there anymore is you, consider a yard sale
25) Stop buying cheap purses. They will not make you happy
26) Scan all your polaroids and 120 negatives. Go through the giant box of 35mm negatives and scan those too
27) Play with the cat
28) Maintain three blogs
29) Sleep
30) Clear your mind. You won't be able to sleep otherwise

Oh darlin', beautiful lady... I am so sorry it is so rough right now... I wish I could be there to take you out to a cappuccino!

I don't know what to say except try to keep writing here, so as to get it all out... You know your hubby loves you and is lucky and you mean so much to him, enjoy your beautiful town, and the season...

Oh I wish you wouldn't get so down!! You are so lovely & wonderful! This time of year just SUCKS for finding work -- because regardless of what is going on in the economy, people don't usually hire right before x-mas... I have been in the same situation same time of year...

So it is NOT you, just remember that...

I just know things are going to look up SOON, in a week or two, don't worry!!! And you'll find something. Take care of yourself, and keep your sense of humor, lots of people love you!!
