If You're Bored, You're Boring

I'm in that mood, you know the mood. The mood where you glance at yourself in the bathroom mirror and think "I totally need to dye my hair blue". The mood where you spot the scissors in the kitchen and think about how you could totally restyle your entire wardrobe. The mood that makes you burst out during your family dinner that you've decided to become a sky diving instructor (it's your calling!). I never liked the phrase "you're not bored, you're boring" I don't get boring-bored I get crazy-bored. I'm in midst of a job hunt that I devote about all of my time to and it doesn't really produce much joy or inspiration. 
Do you have any tips for getting through the unemployment blues?

  2. Oh gosh I don't really have advice either seeing as I am currently restyling my entire wardrobe, haha. I love my daily bike rides now that it's getting warmer though.

  3. Wish I could help ya, but as an ex-hairstylist I usually just change my hairstyle when I'm in a rut! However, I totally love your teal socks!

  4. I really understand you. I´m not sure if I can give you any advice. When I get bored like I usually listen to good music and for some reason I become inspired to do almost anything! I hope you feel better! :)

  5. oh yes! i know that mood too well. i know it's very frustrating trying to get a job or wishing you already had your dream one. Sometimes i give into the mood and just go with the flow. And the best advice i can give is to try to stay inspired... keep a routine... and while you job hunt or wait for responses, do things you've been wanting to do. Use the extra time for something good like indulging in a good book or trying a new project, making a new dish, or even trying a new hair style :) xo! wish you all the best.

    1. I have been strolling through a city a lot and it's really nice, it just often reminds me of all the things I can't do because i'm broke, haha.

    2. hahaahahah!! story of my life. If you haven't read The Language of Flowers, and like to read I highly recommend it. It takes place in San Francisco and is so good, a bit sad, with a happy ending, you should read it!

  7. I was in the same boat until WHAM BAM SHAZAAM! I'm getting kicked out and now I HAVE to reinvent myself. So, me & the bf and baby are moving to a town in Oregon we've never been to, with no jobs, and no one we know. ADVENTURE TIME!

    Sometimes, you just gotta bust and do something redic.

  8. I'm right there with ya! I feel like all I do is sleep and apply for jobs. :/
    Well, next week is my birthday, and I'm going to have some fun Marti Gras party time this weekend! I need to get out of the house for a change. I'm going to put on a cute outfit, some fake eyelashes, and go have fun! :D

  10. I started embroidery in my spare time, it really passes the hours, and you get something awesome at the end of it. Sitting in a new cafe is fun too! Coffee and a book solves all.

  11. I remember when I was unemployed I would get dolled up for no reason...I would wear a dress to a dental appointment or even just to dinner in my living room I would put on pretty shoes & a pretty outfit just to make myself feel good. Cleaning and working out help too. =)

    Good luck with the job hunt!! =)

  12. I currently have a job and I try to remind myself everyday that I should be grateful for it, but I get crazy like this because I feel TRAPPED! I can't cut my wardrobe or dye my hair blue which makes me want to do it even more! But I feel for you because I have been there too! Good luck!

  13. Rearranging your furniture might help. My mom used to always to do that. Or go to yoga. :)

  14. I totally get in that mood, then I usually do something crayz like rip up all the carpet, paint something, or rip off the door in my bathroom (which is still off, and I don't live there anymore, my friends do...oops!)

  15. Maybe try a photo or writing challenge to get your sparks going, pick up a new book, or take a community class. I love the comment above about re-arranging furniture -I do this whenever I'm in a funk. And the hair dye thing too... turquoise hair last year. Hope you can shake the feeling.

  16. Great photos, and hey your man is HANDSOME! :) About the unemployment, I went through the same thing, kinda worrying/wishing/etc, but y'know damn, at some point I had to tell myself to just enjoy the free time! You'll have to work your whole life, y'know ;)?
