Bum + boredom = blogging

I have been a bum for more than four months already. And it's only now that I feel bored so I decided to revisit this blog and start writing again. The past few months were not boring because even though I wasn’t working, I was infinitely enjoying having a bakasyon engrande with family and friends. But now that hubby left me again to work abroad, I stay most of the time at home. I'm alone at home so I don't feel the need to wake up before hubby does and cook and prepare other wifely duties. And so boredom knocks on my door now.

I admitted this to hubby. He told me if I want to work again, I should look for home-based jobs. Hubby doesn't want me to work full time anymore, which entails going to different places, staying late when he's not around, unnecessary pressures. I must agree that I feel so much better physically now that I don’t work anymore. No more sleepless nights of tossing and turning on bed because I couldn’t find a good position for my back, and thank goodness, these past 3 weeks have been really amazing for me (I should write about it some other time), no more nights when I would wake up in the middle of the night because I couldn’t breathe.

Being a bum seems to be good for me, at least for my health, and for the most part, hehe, I enjoy the freedom of not working my ass, haha. But when I’m alone, without any agenda for the day, that’s when I feel bored. And fear that even my brain cells will get bored and make me dumb. I am proud to be a bum, hehe, but not a dumb. So here I am, blogging again.

I have a friend who makes money out of blogging. She inspires me to start writing again. Isn’t that a better reason why I should start blogging again? Hmmm.
