Let me preface this by saying the following: I was laid off from my full-time job in September. It was a sobering experience to say the least and it’s definitely been the number one reason why I haven’t wanted to update my blog. I’ve been depressed, anxious, and blatantly negative about pretty much everything. I figured no one would want to read about some classic post-grad misery.
I still don’t have full-time employment (not for lack of trying…) but my spirits have definitely lifted since that fateful day of release. With that, I bring you this list – here are 5 things that don’t make being jobless totally suck.

If you haven’t heard “Ribs” by Lorde, you should listen to it now. It’s one of the most haunting pieces of music I’ve heard in a while – both lyrically and melodically – and it’s essentially about how terrifying it is to grow up. It resonated with me and I’ve been listening to it obsessively for the past few months so you should too. Enjoy.
The drink you spilt all over me
‘Lover’s Spit’ left on repeat
My mom and dad let me stay home
It drives you crazy, getting old
We can talk it so good
We can make it so divine
We can talk it good
How you wish it would be all the time
