A Perfect Storm

The writing was on the wall so I’m not bitter.

At the end of this week, I will be unemployed. I’m much better prepared than the last time this happened three years ago so I have not yet descended into complete despair. I’m looking at it as a perfect storm of sorts that will allow me a break from to recharge and refocus. I still have school and my writing to keep me occupied so this is the best case scenario for me. However, I do want to make my time off as productive as possible. I’m stealing an idea from another coworker who was laid off and making a FUNEMPLOYMENT BUCKET LIST!



2. Take pictures in the office building.  I work in a landmarked building.  It’s all stained glass, vaulted ceilings, gold inlays, mural-ed walls, etc. It was easy to take for granted and now I realize I probably won’t be able to work in a building with such beauty and history.  Thus, I’m going to sneak onto certain floors of the building and take pictures!

3. Finish the first draft of my book.  Seriously, I need to get a move on.

4. Bathe my cats.  It’s been awhile and Mama can’t afford your fancy groomer no more.


6. Purge my wardrobe.  My drawers are getting hard to close now because I keep buying items without getting rid of old things I don’t wear.  After this purge, I’m going to institute a rule wherein for every 3 new items I buy, I must get rid of one. 

7. Purge my Facebook.  Sorry, ya’ll. There’s too much riff raff on there.

8. Learn a yet to be determined new skill. Knitting? Basket weaving? Woodworking?

9. Visit a museum/historic landmarks at least every two weeks. There are still so many different sites I want to visit in the city.  I have time off to take advantage of and no excuses.

10. PLEASE, JUST GET A JOB. Quickly.

If you have any suggestions, please let me know.  In the meantime, I’m gonna figure out a way to appease the Snow Gods to get them to stop torturing us.
