Sometimes you know something big is going to happen. Something life changing. Or you just hope it will. I feel like I’ve spent the last months waiting. Waiting for the final job confirmation with my boyfriend, waiting for my last day at work, waiting for flights that were always delayed, waiting for my apartment to be empty, for my friends to say goodbye, for my own flight! But when I got here, nothing had changed. I waited for my boyfriend to get back home which could vary between 10 and 16 hours, waited for my stuff to arrive, my mom to get here, my job interview and so on. This can drive you crazy. I became best friends with Ted Mosby and Robin Scherbatsky, finished watching all 9 episodes of ‚How I met your mother‘ in only a few weeks and my motivation level sank. The less I have to do, the less I get done. Many people can probably relate because we are all used to our jobs, having more to do than we could ever finish without working over hours. At the same time struggling with chores at home, taking care of ourselves and enjoying company. Well after one month of unemployment I am glad to be back in this routine. I feel so much more organized and get things done! I am not really patient and these 4 weeks have been harder than expected. With no car and no friends I just stayed at home and watched TV. Worked on my tan and found a new language app which is working great. But when your day has around 16h and you have absolutely no tasks it’s hard not to do siesta, stay in bed and eat.
So welcome back to the stressful working life, to having a schedule and a plan when you wake up in the morning. Cheers to that!
