Stir CrazySo I have officially been in Jacksonville for three weeks and the insanity is starting to set in. For three weeks all I have been doing is sitting at home, job-hunting. I've had a few interviews but nothing has panned out yet, and I am the worst kind of person to be sitting home doing nothing. I go stir crazy in a matter of days.
It's just that I need to be doing something where I feel productive and valuable. This has led me to doing all sorts of things around the house. On Monday alone I did: 2 loads of laundry, the dishes, applied for three jobs, baked a batch of popovers and 4 1/2 dozen cookies between the hours of noon and five. I don't really need my house inundated with baked goods and so I have resorted to staring at my phone willing for it to ring.

Imac has been particularly patient with the fact that A). I have not found a job yet and B). that I attack him when he comes through the door everyday because I am so desperate for human company. He's suggested that I find things to do during this time so that I don't become a mental case. So for the last week I have been doing nothing but writing blog posts (for this blog and another) and working on my novel (its about damn time). Imac also suggested that I start playing Final Fantasy XIV, which is an MMO game like World of Warcraft. Now I have never been a very big video game person. The games I normally play are things like Mario and Mario cart, so this has been a big adjustment for me. So far it's pretty fun albeit slightly confusing and I get lost a lot.
Let's just hope I find work soon before I decide to become the next Master Chef or something. Is this just a me thing? Do you go stir crazy when you are stuck at home too long?
