PS. Hire me.

Yesterday was the first day that a hint of depression about being unemployed snuck in to my bubble of happiness. I found myself working on my resumé and cover letter, and searching for jobs for hours online. But I guess I got lonely and started to doubt the I could ever be successful. When Sean came home from work, my spirits lifted, and we made dinner together and watched Annie Hall. Sean fell asleep at seven, just as the movie reached its midway point, and I found myself alone again and waiting for him to wake up so that we could spend some quality time.

At around nine, I reached over and took off his watch and set his alarm clock for work. He was so tired that he fell asleep with his contacts in, and so I tried to tiptoe around the room for the rest of the night so as not to wake him. 11pm found me in bed reading The Glass Castle by way of flashlight.

I’m a social person. I’m not quite feeling down on myself for quitting my job without first finding another one, because I felt such hatred for my last place of employment that I know I couldn’t have spent another day there. Rather, I am feeling down because I like to keep busy, and I like to work, and above all I like to talk to people.

But today is a new day, and I’m feeling very refreshed.  Tomorrow is Saturday and I will get to spend a two-day weekend with the man I love.  Today I will visit my sweet, sweet, mother.  Things are definitely looking up.
