Unemployment has me depressed. I try not to talk about it here, talking about it doesn't help me and it bores even me. It does merit occasional mention, though.

I don't feel blue or particularly mopey. I'm stressed, twitchy from nerves which leads to occasional social weirdness (outside of my normal quirkiness), and apathetic (outside of my normal poor motivation). It's really just an enhancement of normal bad things, but it's an ugly circle - a lot of this emotional deadweight is going nowhere until I succeed at finding work, and the way it makes me feel and act prevents me putting my best effort into finding work.

I can't do much to interrupt the cycle as a whole, but I can fight the apathy. That is a large part of what the toymaking is about, and that's been a big boost. Last week was really good compared to previous ones - I even got out my old To Do list. Now to carry it forth into this week.
