On unemployment

The title works two ways! I am currently on unemployment, and I'm going to muse on unemployment! Look at me being efficient!

Really the only musings I have right now are that unemployment is amazing and I don't know why I didn't do this sooner, and that I have too much time on my hands.

Now I'm looking at options to really exploit this glorious state I am in.

Option 1: Get a job you lazy hippy

The city I live in is terribly touristy, but not in a terribly annoying way. It's also one of the foodiest cities in America, so if I were to get a serving job I could make bank and it would be delightful.

Option 2: Couch surf like a dirty hippy

I have never been to the west coast, and I think I would enjoy it for a time. I know there is a ticket you can buy that's like, $600 where you can have the ability to ride the bus and take the train as often as you like for a month. This is an option. I know I would have to go to PEI, Ontario, New York, New Jersey, Florida, North Carolina, Chicago, Nashville, maybe Dallas or Austin, San Fran, San Diego, LA, the Lesser Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. Pretty much just skip over the United States of Jesus and say hello to friends along the way.

Option 3: Couch surf like a dirty American

Leave the country! Hell, leave the continent! Europe, Asia, Australia, South America... but fuck Africa right now. I'm not in the mood to be martyred just yet so I'll save Africa for when my britches are too big. I can fairly easily get an EU passport so that would make things even easier.

So those are my three options. Insight would be appreciated. 

Other than that... all is quiet on the home front. No boys, (no men either... alas) and just coasting right now. Laying out on the grassy coastal beaches and reading, getting sun and intellectual stimulation (even though my book right now is a collection of politically correct bedtime stories -- very, very funny) in very unequal parts.

And I'm spent.

  1. I can't really give you an informed decision about which option to pursue, not knowing you better or the state of your bank account, but I've trusted my instincts on decisions like this and they've been right. What do YOU want to do?
