What I Miss

I miss being unemployed sometimes. I don’t miss being completely and utterly broke, and I don’t miss being bored, and I don’t miss being afraid all the time, but I do miss being some things.

Such as:

  • Waking up at 9am instead of 7am
  • Going for a run in the middle of the day
  • Going to yoga earlier than a 6pm class
  • Going to bed early
  • Reading for longer than one train-ride
  • Cooking and eating elaborate lunches (ie. no microwave!)
  • Having lunch with other non-office-working friends (and their babies)
  • Running errands in the middle of the work week, when there are no lines
  • Making up elaborate reasons to leave the house, and finding ways to walk all over Brooklyn so that I didn’t have to “spend” money on my Metrocard
  • Taking up elaborate new hobbies, like knitting or making my own sourdough bread; corollary: spending more money on flour or yarn in a week than on drinks, therapy and takeout food combined
  • Enjoying, with no shame, the free pizza at the Alligator Lounge (this will never stop)
  • Having the time to figure out what I want to be when I grow up
