I didn't do anything either. I got up in the morning. Went to watch tv. Sat in front of my computer. Watched some more tv. Got some food, whatever we could afford at that moment, which was mostly McDonalds.
The only difference between me then and you now is that for me the situation that I was in in the present was worse then anything it could be.
That's what I'm thinking too, that sounds pretty miserable to me. And right now my life is pretty awesome, it's just that it won't be this way much longer and that's why I have a ticking clock reminding me I have to make a decision soon!
For example, your organic farm thing... why not rent out your apartment, sublet it, a bit higher then what you pay, and just do it.
We can't sublet here, it's in the rules. I can't even have a new roommate come live in here with me. (It's only a one bedroom anyway). But I think I will live here as long as I possibly can and once I find out my unemployment money is for sure not coming in anymore, I will immediately put my 2 month notice in, and hope for the best. If I get a job in that time, then I would just move to a cheaper apartment. If I don't get a job in that time, I'll do the organic farm thing as long as I can. Or maybe I'll live at home for small amounts of time then go off and do another work exchange thing. They're not all farms, some of the programs have people who just want someone to live with them for free and do all the cooking! I could totally roll with that!
That lady lives in San Franscisco though and I'd need a lot of money to fly there and back. That's the issue I have to work on next, how to pay for all these plane tickets every time I go off on a new work exchange! Unless I get an RV and drive to all of them! HEY now we're talkin'! Wow i'm on fire tonight!!
I just had a major epiphany in the workout buddy thread so I'm on a roll now I guess!!
