Work For Idle Hands

Okay, Daily Prompt, please stop the mind-reading. It’s unnerving.

But to answer your question, yes I would work even if money were no problem. You see, I am the sort of person who always needs fun, interesting things to do. Barring that even boring, miserable tasks are welcome.

I willingly signed up for summer school just so there’d be something to do, slashing my summer from three months to about six weeks. And now I’ve finished my degree (I love saying that) I have discovered that I get bored easily. I have too much time on my hands, evidenced when I spent some time messing around with a border on a word document just to restore it to the original. At present I’m looking for a job and I’ve signed up for a free online class on dinosaurs. Dinosaurs. 

Don’t get me wrong, they’re great and all, but if I wanted to study out-of-the-box (for me) subjects, I’m off to a good start.

I imagine I’d keep it to a few hours per day just to break up the monotony. I’ve discovered that I like having a routine, the kind I didn’t really have with uni. Even I get tired of reading sometimes. I never really realized how much I relied on university and classes to keep me busy. Without them I’m kind of unanchored, drifting in the sea of job hunts and various applications.

I’ll update the job hunt when an update occurs.

  1. Hi. Interesting comments, but I can’t related “not working” to “boring” or lacking something to do.

    I’m an almost-retired Australian travelling by bicycle in north-west Vietnam. Like you, I’ve studied, and highly recommend it to everyone (at least to graduate level). But there is more to learn for me here than in any classroom. A new language for one, and a tonal language at that. This is the busiest and most physically and mentally challenging time of my life.

    Best wishes for getting a job. Hopefully one that you are passionate about.
