Pro's and Con's

Here I am. Still jobless and still unable to walk.
Yet the whole situation has its pro's and con's. Lets break those down shall we?


Pro - I don't have to wake up before the roosters anymore and I get to sleep in all day if I want.

Con - As fun as that sounds, it gets boring as hell. I'm not the kind of person who sits around all day and does nothing. I went from working 2 jobs, working out 4 to 5 days a week and having a very active social life to NOTHING overnight.


Pro - I don't have to go to work and deal with all the crap I had to deal with before.

Con - The lack of money coming in.


Pro - I don't miss an episode of Oprah or Dr. Phil.

Con - I've noticed a lot of my sentences are now starting with "Well, Dr. Phil says..."


Con - The lack of socializing has put any dating life on hold for the time being.

Pro - I have no stress about dating. There's no "OMG! What if he doesn't like me?" or "What does he mean when he says this or that?" or "I hope he calls". I have none of that right now and its great! All my time is spent on ME!

Hmmm... maybe that also has something to do with the Dr. Phil-isms....?


Pro - I have all this time right now to really think about what I want to do with me career/job situation. I feel like this is the time to take chances and really go for what I want in life. It can't hurt right?

Con - I'm still not clear about what I actually want...


BIG PRO!! - 2 more weeks and I can start to try walking again (with the support of crutches still) and once I can walk and drive again I am going to focus more on my job hunt. I'm seeing the glass half full now and focusing on the fact that I'm THAT much closer to being back to a normal life instead of sulking and feeling sorry for myself.

From one partially-unemployed person to another, you should start watching Ellen too. She's awesome!

Glad to hear you are having a positive outlook on things, and glad to hear you are getting all healed up!

I'm happy you're able to see the positive side of things and have a laugh, even though I know most days it's been really tough on you. Just remember what I said about the peacock - another perk!
