For Me Friday
I knew being inactive would be tough for me. I don't sleep well and I'm constantly watching what goes in my mouth to avoid weight gain as I spend most of my time on the couch - chocolate is still a tough one but I TRY! What I didn't expect for this time in my life was that I wouldn't have a job and I have to say that being inactive is nothing compared to the boredom, frustration, and constant concern that comes with applying for jobs and going to interviews. I have always worked. In high school I worked year round and in college I worked full time in the summers, during the year I was taking classes and too active in groups/activities but did have a part time internship my senior year. I haven't had more than two weeks off in YEARS.
I know I'm fortunate for having interviews within two weeks but the time seems to go so slowly by as I sit, apply, wait, interview, and wait some more.
My parents and Joe are encouraging and I can't express how incredibly thankful I am for their support and encouragement despite my sometimes negative or discouraged attitude. What I'm trying to learn and take away from this is thankfulness that Joe and I budget, thankfulness that I've had this perfect opportunity to recover (today I'm feeling much better than this time last week), and I'm learning to rest/relax/enjoy my life.
Needless to say that without a job we aren't going out or spending much money but we've almost completed season two of Mad Men, I've figured out how to make chocolate ice cream with just bananas and cocoa, and I've had the chance to spend more time with my sister-in-law since she'll be moving away at the end of the month after she graduates this weekend!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Happy Friday!
