My third week of not working

Wow. I can’t believe I’m already into week three since I quit my job. It’s hard to work out what I have actually done with the time.

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m one of those people who when they’re working/studying can’t find time to do anything. Then as soon as that main use of time is removed, all the the things I wanted to do but previously didn’t have time for, well, I no longer have the desire to do any of those things.

I hope I was just being a little hard on myself. I needed some time to just destress, and maybe the way I jumped straight into a job search (and actually started a job the first Friday, which I did the following Monday and Wednesday) and also attended three interviews, wasn’t the best idea. I was offered all the jobs but none of them were what I wanted.

Instead I’m going to head back to New Zealand! For a break, as I will be coming back after about a month to definitely get a part-time position. So now after paying way too much to change my teaching E2 visa to a job seeking D10 visa, the only thing I have to do is decide when I’m going and book flights.

So at the moment I’m jobless, just after Jun got a job that he actually seems to be sticking with. I thought it would be nice, but honestly it’s just so boring and lonely. I also feel terrible if I stay in as I’m living with Jun’s mum and I don’t want her to think I just do nothing all day!

I’m hoping to decide on some flights by the end of tomorrow, and then make some plans for however many days I have left before I leave! I had already booked to go to the Jinhae cherry blossom festival on April 5th, but I might end up having to miss it as I have no idea what I could do to fill my time from now until then.

  1. I hope you feel better by now, but I think it is really just a normal reaction (at least that’s what I tell myself). Coming from a stressful job that took an emotional toll on you, not only your body but especially your mind needs some time to recharge. Unfortunately most of us are wired to not being able to really do nothing. I felt myself having no energy whatsoever but still had the feeling I am supposed to do something, so I ended up “relaxing” aka doing not much but stressing out about it all the time, and wondered why I couldn’t get my energy back ^^”
    I am sure a trip to New Zealand with a change of scenery will do you good 🙂
