Unemployment #1: Unemployed? Learn how to party again.
January 24, 2011 § Leave a comment
Whether you’re newly unemployed, about to graduate college, or looking for a new job, realize that you are entering what can partly be considered the Second Great Depression of our nation, and probably your life. Been depressed and anxious before? Get ready to go through that awful hullabaloo all over again.
Chances are a few of us partied really hard in high school and the rest hit that fuzzy stage in our early to mid-twenties. I’m not suggesting that getting shit faced every day is an awesome idea, but alcohol can help relieve some stress and your down-in-the-dumps unemployed ass might even crack a smile and mumble an intelligent joke or two.
Unemployed people should party once or twice a week. It gives you a day to look forward to that hopefully does not coincide with your monthly reload of food stamps money (another reason to get excited).
Stave off the alcohol during the rest of the week, a beer here, glass’o’wine there is alright, but avoid getting too drunk, binge-drinking, or using alcohol to assuage your dwindling self-esteem. We all know that alcohol is a depressant and will actually negatively affect your already unfortunate situation. Plus, it’s damn expensive.
Partying of course means different things to our politically correct and diverse nation. For the purposes of this blog, however, partying means one thing: swallow those martinis like you’re twenty-two and have three livers.
Raise up your glass of booze and proverbial spirits. The point is to have a little fun, keep positive vibes, energy, or whatever, and not get down on yourself for being an unemployed asshole.
