As I may have mentioned once or twice, being laid off is not much fun.
There is the very obvious lack of job and salary, but then there are other things that you might not realize contribute to your sanity–being around other people, having a place to go everyday and a feeling of accomplishment.
This is not a person. No matter how hard he tries to act like one. He still uses the bathroom outside and eats out of a bowl on the floor. Not a person.
That is also not an office. No matter how much time I spend on it with my laptop.
But this? This? This helps with my sanity.

No sanity here.
Hello? Have you seen my sanity? Is it in this molcajete?
You know what does help my sanity, though? Mexican food with my parents.
Nothing a little guacamole can’t fix, right?
And, um, candles for my dog’s birthday. No shame.
But ultimately, these damn cashew clusters are what finally drove me out of my house to get stuff done at a coffee shop (something I should have done months ago for my sanity.) They should be illegal.
So, please tell me. What do you do for your sanity?
