In theory my freedom should be ending some time in the next six weeks, assuming that I get job interviews and successfully get through one of them. Six months seemed like such a long time in which I could get everything done. Ha! It’s time for me to make a list of things that I need, or at least desire, to accomplish before my freedom ends.
Today Feels Like Monday
Not being a working stiff the days have little significance to me, but today feels like a Monday. This is probably because I spent a few hours in a bar, The Elder Tree Public House, watching sports (soccer in this case), and drinking beer (Smithwick’s in this case). When I arrived Elder Tree was having kitchen issues but were nice enough to provide free doughnuts and bagels for the patrons. By noon, or one, who really knows, the kitchen was back in working order and a breakfast/lunch menu was available. Getting food into my belly was much needed yesterday.
I spent part of the afternoon napping; part learning a graphics design program Sketch, though I’ve yet to finish the Udemy course; part worrying about my eyelid, so I am going to make an appointment for January; part rewatching the first two episodes of The Great American Baking Show via the ABC app on my AppleTV.
By then it was time to go to sleep.

I have taken no photos recently. Go back to yesterday’s post and check out the two archival shots instead.
Lunch And Learn
I am meeting up with Hank and another of our former coworkers, Joe, at Ponce City Market for lunch today. Joe scored a position at Mailchimp, something I had been trying to do prior to quitting my job, which is located in Ponce City Market. Though there is a very small chance now, I was considering walking to Ponce City Market since I certainly could use the exercise.
After lunch I have a few chores to conquer, including stopping in at the eye surgeon place on Scott Boulevard and seeing about setting up that January appointment, and spending the rest of my afternoon educating myself. Doesn’t that sound like a fun day?
Dinner And Learn
German classes are on holiday so tonight I will remain home instead. I have a pork loin waiting to be cooked, and tonight that is what I will do. The loin is covered in a pork spice rub and will be cooked in a baggie using my immersion cooker tonight — four/five hours in a regulated-temperature water bath. It should be delicious! My dessert will be a hearty helping of more self education.
