Literally anything?

If BigLaw has melted your creative sinuses, consider the below:

- Learn to meditate
- read a couple of books for leisure
- go to the gym intensively and lose weight
- Join borrowmydoggy
- Visit friends and family out of state
- Take a solo last minute vacation to wherever is cheap at the monent. For some reason Wyoming comes to mind. (I hear a new strip mall just opened in Cheyenne)
mind.
- Take out a premium subscription to pornhub

the world is your oyster…

Get a full nights sleep. Get up early and read while I can casually sip the coffee instead of mainlining it with an IV like I usually do. Take care of random chores I’ve been putting off
