Snow Day: A good day to be unemployed

28 01 2009


When the weather is bad, the city can be a pretty miserable place to be.  Today is one of those days: the streets are a slushy mess…it’s freezing, raining, sleeting, umbrellas are flying inside out, and overall it’s just gross out.  It’s the kind of day where in the past, I’d wake up and look out the window and think “ugh, I wish I could call out sick and stay in my bed all day today.”   Inevitably, though I’d have to get up and pile on layers of clothes, hats, gloves, boots, the whole nine yards and haul my ass to work.  But not today!
Even though I’ve been frustrated with the lack of job prospects, today is a good day to be unemployed.  I got to huddle up in my blankets in the apartment all day and make soup and hot chocolate, and curl up on the couch with my kitten and a good book. I’m definitely grateful for the chance to relax, recharge and just chill out.
