As I leave my current job and then wait around for something better to come along, I re-enter the funemployed workforce. Funemployment includes doing the myriad little projects you’ve always wanted to do but were too occupied with earning a living: sewing new curtains, crocheting all your friends’ children new wardrobes, silkscreening anything you can put the screen on, and of course, funemployment gives you more time to run.
When you don’t have to do anything or be anywhere, why not run 6 instead of 3 miles? Or 6 days instead of 3? It’ll get you out of the house and thinking about something other than the incredible lack of jobs in your field, the low paying nature of the jobs that are available, and to stop waiting by the phone and your computer compulsively asking everyone you see or speak to: WHY DON’T THEY CALL ME?! WHY DON’T THEY EMAIL ME?!
