What Would You Do?

If you were laid off/unemployed like I am at this time, for as long as I have been, what would you guys do with your time? I've spent most of this time doing a myriad of things from cleaning up, playing Call of Duty/Counterstrike/Left 4 Dead, playing with the cats, blogging and even touched up and painted a wall or two. This in addition to sitting at the computerbox and sending resumes and scouring for job ads. How would you spend your time? Since it's likely this is going to take a while, maybe I need to add some things to my dailys to make life more interesting. Learn the guitar sitting in the corner? What would you guys do?

  1. To be completely honest, I wouldn't being doing much more than you currently are. But, yes it would be a great idea to invest time into a hobby you can pick up. I know most hobbies cost money to enjoy, but in the long run most skills will end up being beneficial to you in the long run.

  13. Try learning a lesson, or take up stretching as a low impact exercise.
    Philosophize, join some social networks, or build mazes for your cats (and of course post pics.)

  15. I'm casually unemployed this year. I planted a big garden in the yard, painted the house, bought a dog to take on walks. I started my blog just to give me something productive to do with my reading interests.

    I spend some time on sport, reading stuff I would not read otherwise (understand educational books), and most important, spend time with family and friends in order to keep the mood up!
