Funemployed

april

I’ve been unemployed for about 5 weeks now and I can’t even pretend to wish I was working. I bloody love not working! This is the life of leisure that I was always supposed to lead.

I haven’t been bored once. If anything, I find there is not normally enough time to do all the things I had hoped to achieve (mostly because I sleep too late or watch too much TV).

This is a typical day for me right now…

7.30: Alarm goes off, go back to sleep
8.30: Actually wake up for real
8.30 – 9.30: Lie in bed and play on my phone and procastinate going to the gym
9.30 – 10.30: Go to the gym in my apartment building
10.30 – 11.30: Housework
11.30 – 12.00: Shower and get dressed
12.00 – 1.00: Look for work
1.00 – 1.30: Make and eat lunch
1.30 – 4.00: Job applications, surf internet, watch TV
4.00 – 5.00: Go for a walk and listen to podcasts
5.00 – 7.00: Buy groceries and cook dinner
7.00 – 8.00: Eat dinner and clean up the kitchen
8.00 – 11.00: Watch TV
11.00 – 12.00: Read in bed

(Other activities include shopping, lunching with friends, reading blogs all day and thinking about food)

Honestly, this is the best life. If only I could afford to live like this forever. Maybe I’ll start getting bored, but I doubt it… not while the internet and Netflix exist.

It’s not all sunshine and lollipops though. I probably have about another week or two before I start panicking about finding a job. Then I’ll just have to drop my standards and start applying for anything. Until then, I am trying to enjoy this precious break while I have it.

  1. I love your schedule!! I daydream of this in retirement (and I can’t believe I’m even thinking of that term LOL!!!!)

    Fingers crossed the dream job comes up before you’re forced to take something not so dreamy!!!!
