I mean here’s what happened. That new job I spoke about with much gusto. Never happened. DO NOT ask me why. We will not go into the sad details. Anyway, with the consequence that I was stranded without work. Hmmm. Now ordinarily one should look at this with much glee, right? Think of the possibilities. Sitting at Café Coffee Day all day, blogging. Or better still, exploring hobbies, taking a course, figuring out alternative income opportunities….
Did I do any of those?
Nah. I moped and expended all my energies in looking for another job. In fact, looking for a job became a full time job in my case.
I thought about a lot of people who would possibly give an arm and leg for the opportunity to have a break. Work will come by eventually. Enjoy the freedom while one has it, I told myself. And then the moment of weakness would pass and I would bury myself in a job portal frantically.
And here I am again. In a cubicle. And strange when I had all the time in the world to blog, I couldn’t. And now when I’m rushed to prepare a presentation, I am.
No. I didn’t enjoy the break. I love this way, way better.
