When You Absolutely Want to Post Something but there’s Just Nothing There.

This sucks.

I’ve been out of work for over a week now, but I’ve yet to actually finish a new book. You know what I’ve been doing? (I mean besides looking for a job, that is. ) Imagining the following:

Inside My Head

  • In my mind, I’ve won the lottery at least twice already.
  • I’ve lost at least 20 lbs doing nothing.
  • I’ve written half of my first draft of The Great Canadian novel (which will be shortlisted for Giller prize, take note).
  • My bookshelves are finally, finally organized alphabetically.
  • I don’t have to worry about my blog because the blog writes itself, obvs.
  • We’ve moved to Waco, Texas and Jo and Chip Gaines found us a great Fixer Upper that they’ve renovated for us.

Oh to dream.

I’m quickly finding out that staying at home the whole day is not all it’s cracked up to be. It turns out, sitting on my butt for a couple of hours straight isn’t all that fun. Especially if you’re thinking about the coming Christmas season and how different it will be this year. We’re usually out of the country, but since I’m currently unemployed, we’re having ourselves a White Christmas this year.

But. Things are looking up. In fact, I’m starting a new job on Monday (yay), and I have another job interview tomorrow (eeeep). I’m so thankful that the job search hasn’t been a struggle, but it’s still not something I want to make a habit of doing. So this time, I’m going to suck it up and stick to this one until I find that job that I will be doing for the next 20 years.
