Default Job That Couples Well w/ Online Poker On The Side?

What are some jobs that are low stress and allow the employee tons of time outside of the job? I don't really care how much the hourly rate or salary is. Basically, I'm looking for a socially acceptable job for a college graduate that allows me to put in 20hrs+/week of poker on the side (or even on the job!) and still have time to hang out with family and friends. I have a BS in physics and minor in math, if that matters at all.

This has gotta exist somewhere...

I teach high school - its perfect. Lots of time off.
Summers to play full time. You could take some extra classes to get your teachers license and teach physics or math

I have looked into this a great deal. Then I always run into teachers/former teachers who say it's unbelievably time consuming. The more I think about it, though, the less I believe them.

Aint exactly low stress but there aren't many jobs that are. I have the same schedule but I'm a librarian. You need a masters degree for my sort of position but it's low stress. Hey, you could be a postal worker, I hear that's real low stress.

I work in a library as well (half time) though I'm on the administrative part and not a librarian. I only work half time and there's not much stress.

There are lots of fairly easy office jobs all over that aren't full time but will give you benefits. Many large educational institutions give full benefits even to their part time employees (which is very nice). With a physics background, maybe you could find part time work in a lab somewhere. The only real downside is there isn't much upward mobility in those part time jobs.

I'm a software developer for the government. 7 hour low stress work day with lots of time to read 2+2 etc. Much better for poker playing than the 4 years I put in with an internet startup before this. I wouldn't necessarily recommend a government job right after graduation though as a career in the government can be somewhat uninspiring (depending on your field) and it can be tricky to pick up more interesting private sector jobs with nothing but gvnmt work on your resume. I'm just on an 18 month contract...

Stock trading is another "job" that works well with poker playing.
