The Gift of Unemployment

So it happened on Tuesday. And I have been embracing the non-working days hard core. Sleeping. Being with M. Drinking. Christmas Shopping. Watching TV.

It is almost like a huge weight has been lifted off of me. They are paying me until the end of December and I am not working. Soo.... it didnt turn out completely horrible. I have a demo I have to do for a company on Monday and if I get that job, I start January 5th, so in all I would have about 20 days off and 5 days where I wasnt getting paid. Not terrible... this will be the most amount of time I have had off in a VERY VERY long time. And honestly, if I dont get that job, it isnt the end of the world. There are many options.

So over the next couple of weeks the most important things are, christmas shopping (which I am almost done with!), being with M, getting my hair done, and applying for jobs. School is done so I dont have to worry about that and the last thing is really just reading and hanging out and going to the gym.

As upset as I was about everything that was going on, I think this will open up options for me and not hold me back from exploring new things.

The amount of money I will save from not getting gas every other day will be good as well! I was really upset at first and now I am just trying to embrace everything that has happened and hopefully everything will work out .

And the countdown until Christmas begins....

You are taking this way better than I did my "transition!" But anyways ... I hope you get the new job and I see this being a better fit - I am also psychic.

At least this way, you have more time to blog!!!
