help me make a list of things that i'm gonna have the time to do now.
1. apply for another job
boxsets all day. etc.
it's also my birthday on the friday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY/UNEMPLOYMENT TO MEEE
If I see you on the Friday, I shall buy you a birthday drink.
i'll look out for you then!
it's pretty fun
same as the above.
I would include walks if it was summer (I did a hell of walking this summer) but now I'd say reading, just absolutely tons of reading; film watching; and gallery going. I'm pretty much doing more of what I did all the time even when I had a job...which I'm not sure is a good thing when it's ALL you do. But enjoy the free time while it lasts!
well, not really, i have to dress up as an angel for the weekend. but yeah. my main employer ditches me tomorrow.
and develop some kind or alcohol or drug habit
or do something productive like:
* Take up darts (with all this spare time you'll easily be able to fit in 4 hours practice a day)
* Learn an instrument
* Take up painting
* Read some books that you've been meaning to get round to
* write a book
or usually what I tend to do when unemployed is:
* watch TV
* become nocturnal
* occasionally do some busking to buy fags and booze
* slowly go mad and end up talking to the walls
Until you are emaciated ruin of a human being.
learn some new skills
get a new hobby/indulge in one you have
read up about some subjects you've never had chance to delve into before
fix your room up
exercise a shitload
this is what i've been doing anyway - it's good for the first 3-4 months then you start to get bored of the lack of disposable income.
