Being Unemployed

Being unemployed isn't as easy as I thought it was going to be.  Finding a new job is also not as easy as I thought it was going to be.

There is a distinct lack of structure.  For example, right now I should be super-excited as it is approaching 5pm on a Friday, but I am just merely contentedly amused.

This morning, I should have woken up after 2 hours sleep feeling dog-rough, but no, I got to have a nice long lay-in which has set me up for a fairly productive Friday so far and I don't have a hangover, I feel pretty damn good.

Me being me, I still have lots of tasks to complete, I am trying to stick to a structure but I am enjoying the fluidity of life at the moment, but I would prefer a structure.

I do have my moments of frustration, where I am looking at job after job thinking there is no point in applying to be a nail technician because I haven't got the necessary qualifications.

But this still compares very favourably to the miserable 40 hours a week I used to have in my last job which was just quite horrendous.  I am so thankful to have escaped.  I appreciate that I may not be able to party every weekend now but I don't have to put up with the crap that I had there.

I will find a job which I enjoy, with a company that I want to help grow, but it seemingly will take a little longer than I originally expected.

Until then I plan to keep on learning things, and try to find someone willing to invest a couple of million into opening a nightclub in Reading and having me as manager/music curator.

Being unemployed can be a little frustrating at times but one just has to remain focused and positive...the reward after all, is Ibiza 2012.

And time for one more party I think...fabric's birthday weekend...how could I say no?
