i have been struck with cabin fever. my life consists of cooking, cleaning, looking for a job, and studying for a standardized test, most of which happens inside the house. i try to make an effort to go outside at least once a day - which is the highlight of my day, including studying at a coffee shop or bookstore, going to the post office and yes, going to target.
it is quite an ordeal, getting out of the house. the way i described it to an LA friend is, it's like being in big bear everyday. i wear layers, get in my big poofy down jacket, gloves, earmuffs and boots when i go out.
part of the problem is that i like to get work done at home during the day. and i also prefer to get out of the house when the sun is still out. it's a catch 22. by the time i'm sick of staying indoors and want to get out, the sun is setting. another problem is that i don't even want to spend money on a cup of coffee because i'm unemployed.
btw, this photo has nothing to do with this post. will wanted me to post it and let you get a glimpse of what you might get if you come visit us.
