Movie Night

Since the network that carries the Oscars doesn't come in on any of the televisions available for my viewing The Big Lebowski was used as a worthy substitute. In fact, The Big Lebowski was probably more entertaining than the awards show. The main character, Jeff Lebowski, or more commonly known as The Dude, is an inspiring character. He is totally at ease with himself, confident in his lifestyle, and able to occupy large amounts of free time walking around in jellies and a robe. I wish that I could occupy my time as easily as lazily as The Dude. I feel like I am wasting time if I am not doing something productive, going somewhere, or out of the house in general. For example, I can't listen to music as an end in itself. I have to be doing something else at the same time. So, to all who long to waste a little time on something totally unproductive, mix yourself a Caucasian and turn up the tunes.

You must learn to embrace laziness and unproductivity without guilt, it's the key to a long relaxing life. Reduce expectations, that way you'll never disappoint yourself.

I need to tape this post on my wall. Part of the reason I took this job was to relax, and now I'm starting to feel mildly stressed because I took on too much, as usual. I need more movie days with sweet popcorn.
