Unemployment….

doesn’t suck as bad as I thought it would.

For one thing, I have a lot more time to spend on my writing. And blogging. And when my dog rolls in dead moles (could be a song in there somewhere), I’m nowhere near as pissed off, now that I don’t have to cram everything I want to do into the eight hours leisure time I used to have between work and sleep.

Down side, I’m up at all times of the morning (like right now, 5:51 a.m.), due, no  doubt, to wondering how I will afford my licorice all-sorts without a pay cheque once my EI runs out.

Up side, I’ve had the time to discover all kinds of fun stuff on my new phone, the one I purchased a week before my job disappeared down a black hole. I can record with it. Sang “Jolene” into it, accompanying myself on my guitar. Sent it to my cousin, Steve, in England. Couldn’t do that before I lost my job. Suppose I could have, if I had the time to figure it out. And practice my guitar.

Can draw with my new phone. Hit Memo and you can use your finger to draw and write on the screen. I may dedicate my next post to my artistic skills.

 

Maybe not.

  1. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

    You had me laughing at this one, and nodding my head in agreement. As a newly retired wanna-be-writer I can really relate to this post. Even the part about realizing that my cell phone does so much more than I ever dreamed of. Now, if I could just get it to clean the house. . .

    And I agree with Christian, you are going to be a great blogger and an even greater writer. I’m hooked on this site already and it’s only my first day here.

    She really did send joleen. It was awesome, like Sheryl Crowe as backing singer with spinal tap.
