No More Early Bird

Before I got laid off I was always an early to bed, early to rise person. That has gradually morphed into go to bed when I’m tired, sleep until whenever. It’s just too easy at night to watch one more episode of whatever (just finished “Call the Midwife;” just started “Orange is the New Black”) or watch the entire episode of “Downton Abbey.” Which is great, because one thing I really needed in my life was more television. Then in the morning, it’s easy to say, “It’s -8º outside. I think I’ll stay in bed and read.” (just finished “The Circle” by Dave Eggers; just started “How the Light Gets In” by Louise Penny — highly recommend both). Even if I do have some sort of appointment or networking/informational interview, I find I won’t schedule it before 10 am. Because I certainly don’t want to have to rush or even worse get up early. I’m getting a little worried that I’m going to need to find a job where I don’t start work until 10 am.

    I took a 6 month break in between my Chicago job and getting a job in Charlotte. It was truly the right decision, but I expected it to be a 2 month break, not 6 months. I’m guessing I spent a lot of time being lazy on the couch because I have no recollection of what kept me so busy that it took so long for me to start looking for a job. I’m fairly certain I didn’t start until 4 months in – right after I bought a house and though, Oh, I have a mortgage again! I guess I need to go get a job. If htat hadn’t happened, I might still be laying on that couch.
