Favorite ways to pass the time while I am unemployed in my new city



, originally uploaded by free admission.

*Taking pictures of Graffiti or anything that strikes my fancy

*Sleeping in just enough to still have a full day and not have wasted any of it away

*people watching

*Thrifting and questing for even more bargains than I normally would in order to stretch my unemployed and part time retail dollar and loving it. Especially when I stroll past the good will when its closed and everyone has just dumped what they want to donate at the door so its free for the taking until they open the next morning. Also finding abandoned household items and bringing them home and using them. This gives me such a thrill, especially the really old items that people pay top dollar for. I have collected so many. So cool.

*My new place and great location, exploring both especially all of the great places to eat and get snacks at a good price

*the public library and its excellent selection of DVD’s

*surfing the net and writing on my back deck in the sunshine

*doing laundry and hanging it on the line

*chatting and hanging out with my new roommates
