I have a confession to make- there is a good side to being
unemployed. The extra time and freedom gives me the opportunity to do three
things that I find absolutely luxurious:
- Not waking up an alarm blaring in my ear at 5:30 am so that
I get into Manhattan without spending precious moments in traffic waiting to
get through the Lincoln Tunnel.
- I get to read more. Extra time on my hands means that I am
reading more blogs and more books on a wider variety of topics. (I might
even get ambitious and finally finish reading Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice;
it's only been four years since I started reading it and 6 months since the
last time I restarted from the beginning.)
- I like how much better I feel and look when I go to the gym
on a regular basis.
The reason I appreciate all of these things is because I
know that when I do find the right job, I will choose to focus other things.
