imagine not having to go to work

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

I mean, I think the ideal would be choosing to work when you want on what you want. It would be cool if someone paid me to pursue whatever interest I had any given day. Today fly fishing, tomorrow spreadsheets, the next day cooking.. I think you need meaningful work to give your day and life structure, but boy does it suck when it's a nice day out there.

not working is my current nightmare, not even kidding. I am terrified.

on the other hand that doesn't prevent me from crossing out the dates on a calendar that serves no other purpose than as countdown until this job is over, because I dream about this being over several times a day.

what I would like to try is not working and LIKING that.

yes, I did a tiny thing for an animal shelter only once a week, I could see myself doing a lot more of that and not going insane.

this dreaming (loud) about doing nothing but volunteering stuff I enjoy, was put to a somewhat harsh end by a coworker.

"you realize basically anyone can wipe a puppy ass, right? what they need is more money. you can donate from what you earn and be of more help than not having the money to donate and wiping puppy ass."

I am still not really able to argue against that. "but I like puppy ass" doesn't really cut it.

i was unemployed for half of last year and it was amazing for the first like month and a half because I was fortunate enough to be okay financially to survive for a bit

but yeah the total lack of structure and routine started to get to me and made my already crippling depression even worse at times

So then we all agree, we're better off under the crippling thumb of capitalist oppression.

serious question, I tried to not think about it but maybe I should:

I have 2-3 months of not working coming up, which won't be a financial problem, but a sanity problem. I have not not worked in anything since I was 12 years old for longer than one month.

what does one do? so far my plan consists of doing what I usally would want to but don't find the time for, but that would be done in about a week, I guess? playing stardew valley? what???
travelling is sadly not an option.
