    This unemployed life sucks. Not much to do. Job hunting in the AM. At the bar by 2pm. Weekends always at the Bar.

    I was ready for a change.

    But all the things that "changed" were not that satisfying. So I decided to take up zumba and I feel so great now! It was a small change, but as it turns out, It was all I needed.
