There's always something...

I've been looking for a job pretty much every day since I graduated, but so far I've had no luck. There haven't been any instrumental teacher positions to apply for, and I'm not quite ready to start applying for whatever random job I can find yet - not that there has been many of those to choose from either. After six and a half years in college, I would like to try to find something that is at least related to what I studied.

So, basically, I have lots of free time right now, and it's driving me nuts. I have no particular reason to get up in the morning, no reason to leave my apartment, and no money to do anything even if I do. I have about a dozen or so new songs that I would like to record, but I can't really do that either right now. I managed to get myself double-sided carpal tunnel syndrome about two months ago, and the damn thing just won't go away no matter what I do. I've tried anti-inflammatory pills, Voltaren gel, acupuncture and just plain rest, but it refuses to disappear completely. So I can't book any gigs as long as it isn't gone either. I'm starting to feel like the only thing I actually CAN do is sit at home and stare at the walls, while trying very hard not to use my hands for anything. It's really starting to affect my mood, and not in a good way.
