Well I've been unemployed for 14 months, but the thing is my money from the state runs out soon (either next week or in 2 months, I'm still unclear on that), so I was going to try harder to get a job NOW, because it's my last chance to get something before having to move back home. And if I have to do that, I won't have any money for even gas to drive to the store! If I do the work exchange thing I still need money to GET to them so I don't see how I'll be able to do anything at all, if I can't get a job.
Oh good, you have no money to afford to pursue some of your interests. |
That simplifies things. Let's say that out of 20 interests, there are 8 you can't afford. Now you have more time to pursue your remaining 12 interests. On average, your weekly time for each activity goes up from 2.5 hours to slightly over 4 hours.
Of course it's easy for you to see this as a good thing, you're not the one having to give up 8 of your interests!
