Ah, the life of the professional slacker. The one who’d rather be lazy than tired. The menial jobs for low salaries, but at least you’ll get more free time (well, that’s the plan) and all that effort you’d actually spend at “work” can be actually be spend towards improving your REAL life.
However, to keep up the pretense of being worthwhile to a company you’ll have to apply SOME effort to develop some personal skills. Mostly your social skills, as fun is of the essence.
A career based on the Slacker career from Livin’ Large and TS2.
It’s a career where you need to develop some jack-of-all-trade skills to appear functioning.
You will earn less compared to other careers, and you’ll also work less. So you have more time to do other things!

The best part about knowing so many people is that you get to use that knowledge to earn your keep.

Those who learn the most from you learn to love you best, and may eventually invite into their inner circle.
