New Routines

I'm still adjusting as life as an unemployed person. I know it's a temporary thing, but I still want to get the most out of it anyway. Whatever that is.

I would love to have a job by 1st of August so I can figure stuff out with my housing situation as well — I need to be out by 16th of September. Knowing where to move would be great. I don't feel like moving twice within a short period. Last time I had to move was one of the most annoying experiences of my life. I hated it so much.

Anyway. Right now I need to find a daily routine again. I can't sleep all day and I can't just pretend like it's a forever-weekend. I have jobs to apply to!
I've made a LinkedIn profile (you can connect with me​ if you want to here), a nice looking CV and sent out a couple of applications. Now I have to wait while still being hopeful and applying for more jobs. It seems a bit silly since I really hope I get the jobs I apply for, but if I want 'dagpenge' (unemployment benefits) I have to send out a bunch of applications.

I think the first step to making​ this work is to have a good routine. I want to get up early-ish (before 9am), meditate and work out (maybe not every day, but a couple of times per week) and maybe work on some creative projects along with improving skills/working on new ones. I have all these plans, but plans mean nothing if I don't make them a reality!

It's been a week now and I think I'm doing okay. Tomorrow is a new day and I think I should get to bed so I don't turn my sleep schedule​ upside down.
