This may sound off topic, but hear me out…

Could you maybe volunteer somewhere a few hours every Saturday?  Find a local animal rescue, visit elderly folks in a nursing home, check out a soup kitchen, whatever sort of organization you feel drawn to. 

First, people are happier when they are doing good deeds for other people.  Also, it will be a nice change of pace for you.  And of course, networking is a fabulous way to make connections with people and maybe even land a job!  Worst case scenario, you don’t find a job, you get bitten by a dog and your old lady bridge partner croaks mid game.  I suppose that sequence of events would be highly unlikely though πŸ˜›

There’s nothing wrong witha break, especially if you’re just going to visit family… its not like you’re running off to Jamaica on a whim.  Maybe try to find something productive to do in the mean time – writing, fitness, friendships… that will keep you busy and lift your spirits.  If you’re just thinking about one thing – finding a job or your relationship – that’s going to get tiresome.  We all go through periods like this πŸ™‚

I agree, I think a visit to family is a lovely idea and I don’t think it’s running away from it at all. We all need a bit of a break now and then and periods of transition can make you feel really crap sometimes.

Things will be on the up; a job will come around soon and before you know it, your OH will be graduating. I know how it feels, it felt like forever when we graduated last summer after 4 years long distance… now we’re 6 months away from fidning a house. Madness! 

Keep going lovely πŸ™‚

I find I have to have long-term plans and a lot of short-term fun. If I have something to look forward to on my calendar at least once a week, I’m much happier than if I only have dreams for 2  years from now. I like to have a couple of regularly scheduled activities so that, even if my friends and I don’t get together that week, I at least have something fun and social outside of work. You need to plan how to bring a smile to your face every day!
