Things I’ve Learned While Being Unemployed

29 Oct

I begin my new job next Monday, so I thought it was appropriate to post some things I’ve learned while jobless. In no particular order…

1. The West Wing still comes on Bravo. Hooray! New addition to our DVR list.
2. The more sleep you get, the more you want. I’m talking going to bed early, getting up late, and still napping, people.
3. Being at home makes me cook and eat more. Not good. Weight gain.
4. I thought I would have a lot of time on my hands. Turns out, I can run out of time to do everyday errands with or without a job to blame it on.
5. Barbara Walters gets on my last nerve. Seriously, she gets on it, and then tap dances around on it.
6. I’ve become more attached to my dog, Wallace. I didn’t think this was possible.
7. It’s confirmed, I still hate soap operas and have no use for them.
8. I heart Oprah.
9. Starting a cleaning business could be profitable for me. I’m like, really good at cleaning.
10.Living a life with no alarm clock is bliss. Not realistic, but bliss all the same.
11. Meeting new people and answering the question, “What do you do?” is more fun when you don’t answer, “Well, I used to ___, but now I’m unemployed.”
12.After going to my mom’s classroom, I have even more respect than I did before for teachers. They are superheros.
13.Kelly Ripa has more shoes than Carrie Bradshaw.
14.Job interviews still aren’t fun.
15.Staying at home all day sounds like fun, and it is – for about three days. If you need a break from work, I’d suggest a three day “do nothing” break. You’ll be dying to get back to work! (Unless you have children, and then you have something to keep you busier than a “typical” job.)
