the old-fashioned meaning of "bum"

When I say I'm a bum, I mean as in hobo. No, I'm not homeless, but my life is on hold pending the resolution of certain administrative matters that will decide how I proceed with life from that point on. Thus my days consist of trying to find ways to make time pass as quickly as possible, so that my waiting at the convenience of other people can end as quickly as possible.

On the positive side, I don't have to lift a finger if I don't want to, and there are times when lifting a finger feels too onerous (although there are times when I'd rather catch the next plane to the South Sandwich Islands).

Anyway, I found this forum by googling for places in which you can write something longer than a tweet. This looks like a nice place. I like the creativity of the featured articles and videos on the home page, and the forum posts by other people I've read so far are articulate and constructive. I wanna stick around.

You write pretty darn well. :) And the topics are interesting.
