1... I have finally joined the ranks of the "willing unemployed"...I have retired as of Friday, August 31, (somewhere around two days ago)

2... I have been advised I am now a "probie"...an intern in the fine art of retirement.

3... I have acquired two mentors...(names withheld to protect the innocent but Colorado and Florida won't let the cats out of the same bag)

4... My mentors tell me I need to practice the fine arts of nothing, later, nap, nothing, later, nap, repeat...

5... procrastinate...

6... As a probie I am to learn how not to tell time...or accurately note the current day...or how many days have past since some incident...or how many days in the future something is to occur

7...(except doctor's appointments). 

8... Also, don't make "to do" lists...rather, make "don't do" lists...

 

So I plead with you now to help accelerate my exit from "probie-dom"...not sure what the next stage is as my mentors feel I am not yet ready...

Any advice in speeding up my studies is appreciated...so I can make my mentors proud...

What should I do to break out of "probie" to full fledged "retired"...

 

Thank you in advance (but not too far in advance)

 

1... WAY TO GO PROBIE!!!!

2... forever and a day...

3... Good... WTB they won't want to ''sponsor'' anyone else because you'll be handful and make them be busy witch won't set well w/ them......
4... You left out eating, sex and fishing...
5... procrastination is a good thing... it gives you something to do tomorrow and nothing to do today...

6... when you are clueless as to what a day/date group is,,,  you have overcome a major hurdle...

7... the reminders are done by others... they ain't retired...
8... NO!!! that's still doing...

drop all those projects you mentioned that need doing like a hot rock...

and...

check in every so often... we need to know if you fell off of the wagon and support needs to be rallied...

Well, PROBIE, I'm glad to see you are listening. I know it's a big change, but you'll ease into it just fine. However, to that end, you will need to modify your vocabulary, slightly. We'll start off easy...

 

Can you say, MONYANA? This is Spanish for tomorrow. Learn it well. Tomorrow, (monyana) you will be expected to use it in a complete sentence. Something like...oh, OK, I'll get to that monyana, but right now I need a nap.

My recommended day in retirement life.

Get out of bed at 8:00AM

Screw around on the computer until 12:00Noon

Decide what to do today with the understanding that I am still five hours ahead of the time I usually got home from work. 

I can get something done but what's the rush.  Tomorrow has the same options.

 

See, @Nickp Dan has "monyana" down pat!
