I haven't been to a movie in months, partly because we have a 4-year-old daughter and it's difficult to get out of the house for a date. But also because I've been busy with the job search. I remember months ago at a Job Connections meeting where one unemployed guy noted that after months of constantly looking for a job, he treated himself to part of an afternoon off from job hunting to go to a movie. It was a great escape and a good break, he said. Looking for full-time work can be a 40-hour week or more, and breaks like this are necessary.
