On Funemployment

The LA Times just published an article on "funemployment," a concept that has been prevalent on the internet in the last several months. At first I thought I was the cleverest being alive for thinking to combine "fun" with "unemployment," but logically, I know I was not the first to call living it up while jobless by its pseudo-official punny name. Regardless, this is reminding me to do more fun things while I look for work. I'm not going to just let it all go and escape to the beach or anything...I mean, I do need to find a job. But it's a nice reminder to enjoy the time that I do have.

Oh, and the LA Times anonymously quoted me (from Twitter). I find this entertaining.


  1. This is really interesting as I recently went through this for the first time in my life. I feel bad for liking the word, however.

  2. My eyes were absolutely opened by my 4.5 months of f/unemployment. I don't know if that's a good thing now that I'm employed though...I've tasted the good life! Kidding, kidding...sort of.
