September has been… interesting. I was laid off (yay? Please sense my sarcasm) and I’m still on the hunt. I’m still not really sure what I want to be when I grow up, other than it seems like it might be a bit late to become a ballerina – damn bone structure. Although maybe I can convince someone that they should really bring on a prima ballerina with little to no experience and significant room for improvement on the fitness front. I am pretty charming, after all, and I think I look pretty foxy in a leotard.
Rather than whine endlessly about how much it sucks to get laid off, let’s instead talk about the benefits!
- Sleeping in. You had to know this would be first on the list. I can stay in bed until whatever time I feel like, unless I have an appointment that I was silly enough to schedule for the morning. I’ve been trying my best to get out of the sack by 9 so that I can feel like a normal human but those pillows seem to have their own gravitational field some days.
- The gym is empty allllll day. I can go for like, 2 hours and there will be next to no-one in there. This is perfect. Not that I’ve been doing it every day but it’s been pretty sweet when I’ve been able to.
- I can actually go outside and enjoy the weather. Again, not that I do… I really should though. Why am I not outside right now??
- I can hang out with friends that work shift work. They can be hard to schedule with when you’re working 9-5, but when you’re both off on Thursday, you can totally hang. Because who else are you both going to talk to?
I’m sure there’s more, but I should probably send out a few more job applications. To date, no one has offered to pay me to write blog posts.
