|This has been my life lately...|
You'd think I'd be able to find the time in my unemployment to visit here more often and fill these blank blogger pages with all kinds of anecdotes. Alas, no.
Well, let me explain: it's not that I don't have the time, because time is all I got here lately - I just haven't had the energy.
That's right. Unemployment, and how I got here, has hit me way harder than I anticipated, and I've been sitting around the house like a Gloomy Gladys ever since.
Sure, I've cooked a lot more, and I've actually done dishes and laundry in a timely manner, but that's honestly about it. I have all of these grand unemployment cleaning plans, but none that have come to fruition.
I have had a few good days, or better days I should say, but they are few and far between it seems. Today is one of those better days. Hence why I'm here right now. I had a few minutes to spare, so I thought I'd bang my head and my fingers on this laptop keyboard.
I'm actually doing something today! Huzzah! I had lunch with my mom a bit ago, which is always one of my favorite parts to each week, and here in a bit I am going to hang out with my sister-in-law and nephew. Luke has an early ending day today for teacher stuff, so we are going to go watch the movie "Home" - it's also the $5 movie day, so that's exciting! I haven't seen a movie in theatres since we saw "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" in December 2013 while on vacation with my parents in Laughlin, Nevada. YIKES. Plus, I love Jim Parsons, so this could be a fun & cute movie to see.
I really, really want to make sure to try to blog more. This is an interesting time in my life (one I hope to not repeat again..), and I'd like to try to remember this journey I'm on in the future. So here's to hoping I can muster the energy and mental strength to write here more often. I feel awfully alone all day, so it would be a good escape to dive back into blog world, even if it is so much more different than when I started blogging. Hashtag Old Lady, haha!
Other than just being a ball of loneliness and sadness, I've managed to have two interviews (other than Ploughshare, which, IMAGINE THIS, never got back to me..), both of which were at the University, one of which I would really like and the other I have no idea why they even brought me in for an interview because I am in no way qualified. So it goes, I guess.
I gotta jet out of here so I can make it to my SIL's on time..
See you soon, little bloggy!
