After graduating college, I made a steadfast decision not to move back home to Detroit. My idea of post-collegiate success was to steer clear of the rust belt wasteland that is my home town, live as close as possible to my girlfriend, and be a completely independent adult.
Conversely, my idea of failure - my biggest personal fear - was losing a job and not being able to pay the bills. So when I became an early casualty of this "fundamentally sound" economy last Halloween, it was my own personal nadir; a hydrogen bomb going off in the life of one Mr. Manifesto.
Throw in a steadily eroding long-distance relationship that ultimately flat-lined, and your boy was all out of sorts. As I started living off the money I saved to go visit her, the clouds rolled in and stayed above me for months. A good nights' sleep was pretty much out of the picture; replaced by wide-eyed nights awake and alone with my demons.
If you had asked me in December if I would have made it for over two months sans job, I would have laughed and thrown a handful of pennies at you just for living. Yet, I've just crossed the five month mark having maintained a level of sanity and resolve that gets me out of bed every morning without a desire to do a header off the roof of the Sear - excuse me, Willis Tower.
Some of you reading are probably in the same situation or staring down the barrel of an eventual layoff. I've done a lot to help cope. Here are just a few things I've found to be pretty helpful:
Do a financial and personal inventory: When you stop getting that regular scratch, it's natural to go into crisis mode at some point (I did). The darkness, however, will provide clarity to help you figure out the priorities in your life; especially when it comes to what you're spending money on. Being single with no children and a pretty low monthly rent, I realized it wasn't as hard as I expected to adapt, nor is it difficult to maintain some semblance of the modest lifestyle I had.
I kissed HBO goodbye (after the Bill Maher season completed). I wait and go to $6 Tuesday movie nights instead of shelling out $10.50 on a Friday night. I'll have a couple of four dollar Coronas at a neighborhood bar instead of paying $7 for a Miller Lite downtown on a Friday. I also realized getting a steady paycheck can make you stupid; Check your accounts and I bet you'll find you're being debited monthly for crap you forgot you were even paying for.
You also learn quickly to distinguish between those who truly have your best interests at heart and those who can get the size 12 Timbs. Not that I ever really questioned it, but I've confirmed who my most loyal friends are through this all. When my first rap album goes platinum, I'm flying us all to Ibiza. All expenses paid.
Listen to OK Computer: If I had to pick one album that personally conveys the gamut of emotions related to the anger, frustration and sadness that comes from job loss, rejection and heartbreak, it would be Radiohead's 1997 magnum opus. I had to channel all that negative energy somehow, and this joint played a big part. "Lucky" and "Climbing Up the Walls" might be the reasons I'm not in jail right now.
Find joy in the little things: Believe it or not, I'm having the time of my life th
