Job Surfing Withdrawal

I have decided to take a mental break from job hunting this week.  I am not going to visit a single web site with job postings. I am half way through day one of this mental health break and I feel as though I am on some sort of withdrawal program for addicts.  I did not realize the constant need to think I am accomplishing something towards taking care of my future was an addiction, but it just may be.

This is sad news since I thought my only addiction was potato chips and my only obsession was all things Christmas. Even as I write this, I am wondering if today was the day a dream job, in a dream location, was posted. Never mind that my idea of a dream location has been changing almost weekly. If I cheat and look how will any of you know? This is the very same attitude about a handful of chips doing no harm that shrinks my pants. The countdown clock now stands at less than thirty days to actually being unemployed and I am trying to view it as a needed vacation. I haven’t had a vacation in over a year. I would enjoy a vacation. I would really enjoy a paid vacation much more. Maybe I can use my “vacation time” to become obsessed over exercise and broccoli
