Hobby Reprise

Ugh, one would think that being unemployed would mean that I have plenty of time to write a post each day, but once again here I am several weeks from my last update.

Hi! How’ve you been?

In spite of my radio silence, I seem to have pulled through my slump that was happening towards the end of September. For a while, it seemed like I was constantly needing to lie down for little cat naps throughout the day just to bolster my energy. Once I finished my gig on the animated production I was working on, I embarked immediately on a ten-day caffeine detox to try to reset my system. That changed my “cat naps” to “NAPS” that sometimes lasted a couple hours and left me a bit drifty for the rest of the day. Now I’m back to my regularly scheduled morning coffee and my productivity has ticked up accordingly.

For the past couple weeks my focus has been on job hunting. The timing worked out nicely so that I was finishing up my employment right at the exact moment that USC was holding their Career Week events online so each day I could sit in on one or more Zoom session to get to know some of the other opportunities available. I’ve had several interviews, but nothing has panned out yet.

In the meantime I’m enjoying having command of my free time to work on various hobbies. Do you know how long it has been since I’ve had hobbies?! Like, actually gone to the craft store to buy stuff “just for fun”? Baking! Reading! Miniatures! Basketmaking! Sewing! Collage! Suddenly I have time to dedicate to these things just because I enjoy them and not having to hoard my precious, precious minutes for the sake of Productivity.

So, I’m doing well and keeping busy. Gotta enjoy myself while I can 🙂
