This paper explains that the author believes that the one constant thing the he can rely on, which directly relates to his own personal exposure and inclusion of leisure, is the way he treats leisure and how he lets it impact himself. The author stresses that it is his own responsibility that his lifestyle choices lead to something positive, constructive and self-satisfying. The paper acknowledges that, in order to participate in the leisurely activities to which he finds himself drawn, the author is required then to work; therefore, it makes sense to him that his work be based in some sort of leisure as well, which in his case is the theater.

From the Paper:

"It's then important to me to distinguish between theater leisure and theater work. If I legitimately want to succeed in the business of theater, I have to treat it like such. I have to be open to opportunity. Theater is about determination and hard work as much as it is about fun and passion. I need to be aware of my surroundings; only then will I accept and fulfill what it takes to do well in this field. Let us consider my options, wherein theater contains many. Where do I "make it big?" The film industry. But let's look beyond that. There is plenty of options just waiting for me to pounce on them."
