A lot more free time on my hands

Today is the first day of my unemployment. Nervous as I am about not having a paycheck for the time being, I certainly don't mind having a little more time and a little less pressure for a while. I am determined to make use of the time to ensure that the other important things in my life get taken care of without being shortchanged or crammed in.

I'm going to set aside a short but regular homework time earlier in the day, when my focus is at its best. After 3PM I tend to have trouble getting my head into work. I'm going to make sure I get some kind of exercise every day, or at least six days a week. I'm going to work on all the projects and skills that are important to me that need practicing, like ballet and sewing. I want to do all the things I haven't gotten around to due to lack of time. It will help keep my morale up while I'm wading through my messy life.

The only thing I'm really bugged about is I have to give my work computer back. I've been relying on it as my primary computing machine since I got this job. I had a big desktop, but my Dad took it home to fix something on it, and once I had the laptop I never bothered to get it back. I'll have to have Dad send it, but I'll miss having something portable I can actually write on. I have the iPad too, but that is much more convenient for play than for work. Ah, well. I'll make it work, like I always do.

Wish you the best of it! You're a writer who manages to finish things, so I trust your discipline will see you through.
