funemployed

June 14, 2018

I'm officially no longer employed.  Basically.  Well, it's sort of complicated because I still have income and I still have health insurance and basically I am getting all the benefits of having a job without having to show up to work anymore so I am a real, true brat.

 

 A little while ago, my friend K gave notice at her old job and took two weeks off before she started her new job.  While she was at home, she called herself "funemployed" and I really loved that.  Then, I was flipping through Instagram shortly after that and saw this t-shirt on the Studio DIY feed.  I ordered one for myself from them and I've decided to steal K's intellectual property and I'm going to refer to myself as "funemployed" during the upcoming year.

 

Now that I don't have to go to work anymore, I am feeling a bit more pressure to get my shit together.  I need a vehicle and more than just one campground reservation and some practical experience with a camper van and on and on.  Also, I am having some existential anxiety about the state of the world (as always) and some mundane anxiety about leaving my full-time job to do this thing which still feels sort of frivolous and unimportant.  

 

Here's what I do have done so far:

 

 

1) a home for my dog, Birdie (she's going to stay long-term at a boarding facility where she'll be loved on regularly and get to hang with other dogs every day and where my parents can look in on her easily).

 

 

 

 2)  a reservation at Walt Disney World (mid-October, three nights and two days of actual park visits).

 

 

 

 

3)  I'm actively downsizing my stuff (I had a yard sale, I gave several things away, this is a work in progress but it is progressing).

 

 

Perhaps not as much as I'd have hoped at this point, but forward motion is forward motion and I have to give myself some credit for getting everything out of my desk at work and having my yard sale and managing all my weird anxiety/depression/queasiness.  Exciting things are coming up.  I hope you'll stick around!
