Too Tired to Blog

Here's a secret of unemployment that many people won't tell you - sometimes, you're just too tired from doing nothing to actually do anything.  For example, me, right now.  I'm exhausted, and for no explicable reason.  I've slept 20 hours of the last 48, I'm spending the day watching Bravo, and, oh wait, what's that sound?  Ohhhh, it's the sound of a 140,000 toilets flushing $1 each of my college education. 

Sometimes when you're unemployed, you have these days.

It doesn't help that the thought of having a "real" job gives me hives.  It actually makes me tense up and hyperventilate.  I am not one of these lucky folks built for a 9-5.  What I am is one of those weirdos with the capacity to work 27 out of 24 hours a day when doing something I care about, but it's just that I don't care about much these days.

Any brilliant suggestions for how to revive oneself, and/or off the beaten path jobs?  I'd love your ideas in the comments.  Thank you, lovely readers!

  1. I'm bad with the 9-5 thing too. I was very lucky to find a small company that needed me for paperwork stuff. It sounds boring, but in fact I have flexible hours, I don't feel chained to a desk, the people I work with are fun and my boss appreciates me. Doesn't get better than that!

    I too find that the busier I am, the more productive I become. On days when I don't have anything scheduled, it's incredibly hard to get even one thing done!
