Unemployment Part Six: Getting A Third Wind
I was told early on to focus on getting a second, third, fourth, and fifth wind throughout this process. Sometimes it can be difficult when you’re trapped in the drudgery of the day-to-day comings and goings of the job hunt. Thankfully, there are government-mandated holidays when it’s actually impossible to seek out work and you must - by law - take a break. These are the times to seek out those consecutive winds by escaping the city, and there are cheap ways to do it. Here was mine:
Overview: Drive down the coast of Australia camping on gorgeous beaches and petting wild kangaroos.
Borrowed Motorhome - FREE
Gas For Borrowed Motorhome - $35
Food For Four-Day Holiday - $35
National Park Camping Fees - $10
GRAND TOTAL: $80
Yes, for $80 I was able to get away on the sly, relax, rejuvenate, reflect and prepare my next attack! Follow the trip up with a few tips from my life coaches and away I go upon returning to the city! The best advice I got? “Remember, you’re going to find a job eventually because you have to. You just have to. Therefore, it WILL happen.”
That’s an important thing to keep in mind moving forward. Just relax, take the rejections, learn from them, and remember that I will get a job eventually no matter what. Why? Because I have to.
More on my actual adventures tomorrow!
