I lead a pretty fast-paced life, eating most meals on the go or having them delivered, making calls on the subway, rushing from one errand and place to the next with no time to unwind. So when I get home at the end of the day, all I want to do is vegetate with a TV show or the internet. I didn’t feel so bad about this when I had a well-paying job that worked me hard, but now that I’m unemployed, this pathetic routine has made me feel worthless.
This experiment has given me a chance to slow down, think and record my thoughts, and work in a more disciplined manner. And I think it’s worth noting that last night was my first nightmare-free sleep in more than a week.
