I just don't know what to do with myself

Man, you wanna know what sucks about being an adult, school closures are not quite the same. i got a call this morning from my boss telling me that the preschool is closed, I don't have to go to work. Sweet I thought as I hung up, I didn't have to get out from under my nice warm coveres. However, as I turned over and tried to go back to sleep, I couldn't stop thinking about the money I'm loosing by not going in to work today and then stressing out about how that 100 bucks or so was going to go to this and to that. Then I was like, well what the hell am I going to do with the time off? Perhaps if I go to my second job all day I can make up for lost hours, even though they pay me significantly less. Is there even enough for me to do at the other job. Is the HR lady even going to be ther. Do they Want to pay me for more hours. Do I want to go all the way over there or just stay at home and take advantage of the empty laundry room at the apartment?

Man I remember when school being closed meant "knock yourself out, go play in the snow and come home for a nice warm cup of hot chocolate." I mean I dig the drinking and the flirting and stuff but this whole adult sense of responsibility thing and money fucking blows.

Indeed, Mir, once you're on your own you're really on your own! The whole worrying-about-money thing never quite goes away, but if you're lucky you become resigned to the fact some budgetary crisis or other will happen when you least expect (or need) it.

From my safe vantage point down here in Orygun, I suggest you embrace serendipitous days-off from work: There will probably come a time when such dispensations are longed for yet fail to occur. Lack of sufficient money will always be a constant nagging dilemma, but getting to stay home in your own space is actually a luxury — as long as it doesn't become the norm.

Anyway, here's hoping you'll eventually relax during this day-off respite from workplace tedium. Worry about the money tomorrow, but today just be free and easy.

Thanks, Mr. Cat. I regret to report, however, that I did go to my second job, but I'm working quickly to go home soon before it gets dark and cold again.
