The Leisure Commandments

From the book "Time Off! The Unemployed Guide to San Francisco"

Thou shalt enjoy at least one sustained period of unemployment during thy career.
I suppose I can look forward to fulfilling this commandment soon, if I don't get cracking on finishing the portfolio...

Thou shalt switch careers to do something thou really enjoyest, even if it means taking a pay cut.
Dammit, that's what got me in this farging situation in the first place.

Thou shalt pursue on secret childhood dream without regard to status of the judgement of others.
That settles it. New career-path: International spy.

Thou shalt party until dawn on at least one weeknight.
Check.

Thou shalt lounge around thy house in thy pajamas.
Anyone who knows how hot it gets in my studio in summertime can guess whether I've bested this one. Why d'ya think I like that fact that there are no windows?

Thou shalt create, experiment, and ponder.
Dammit, that's what I do for work, not leisure.

Thou shalt reconnect with thy community.
Yeah, 'cept I'm trying everything I can to get away from 'my community' right now.

Thou shalt partake of the great outdoors.
True dat. I gotta see the beach again sometime in the next two weeks.

Thou shalt travel and explore, beginning with thine own hometown.
Um, if I actually lived in San Francisco, instead of relatively boring Mountain View, I'd be all over this commandment.

Huh, if only you knew someone who lived in the redwoods, by the beach...
