When in Doubt, Go Swimming — 36 Comments

  1. Good for you for getting out and enjoying the day! You never know where opportunities will present themselves….staying home hunkered over a computer may not be the best way to find what you want. Where would you like to work – realistically? Could you go there, talk to someone? Sit in a cafΓ© outside there (reading or writing, of course) and check out the people? You never know!

  2. Good luck with the job search. I am right there with you. I feel your pain.

    Can you search outside? If you have a laptop, can you take it out and at least get some fresh air while job hunting? Then again, you live in LA, right? I’m thinking “fresh” is a relative term there. πŸ˜‰

  3. I remember when I was job searching a few years ago. Every day was more dismal than the rest, and every job description bored me senseless. To keep yourself sane and connected to the real world you have to get out every now and then and give yourself a day to relax and recharge. I’m glad you had that day with the pool and your book. And that picture is so beautiful.

  4. Job searching is the absolute pits. I just got a job a month ago after six months of unemployment. Not to say that the first few months of catching up on bills is any easier.. Ugh. Sincerely, good luck to you.

  5. Ah Natalie – (((hugs))). Job searching sucks. The in between sucks. I’m so glad you had this day, with that beautiful view and a change of surroundings. It always seems to help to get out into the world – outside our own four walls and get a breath of fresh air and renewal. I hope the truly hope something more inspiring jumps off the want ad pages at you. xo

  6. I was splashing around the ocean a few hours ago for the same exact reason. I love getting my swim on and getting my energy out this way. Nothing beats a good swim.

  7. Wow, that’s a pretty spectacular looking campus! I guess once all the students come back it won’t seem like quite the same idyll that your pictures show but I think you should make a weekly lunch date with your husband there.

  8. You seriously make me laugh…we have the same humor. Not laughing at your predicament, Lord knows I am in an employment nightmare too, but your wording…”undiscovered scrap of employment…” so good!
