    How should one live their life?

    I ask the moderators don't remove this, it kind of deals with art, I guess. It's deals with the art of living. I wanted to know what some of you think.


    How should one live their life?

    The way that fits them best, harming the least people in the process.

    I'm stiving towards
    -5-6 hours of sleep
    -8-14 hours of work
    -Wind out with games or TV shows
    -Art for at least 2 hours
    -Keeping a healthy social life
    -Keeping yourself, your partner and/or pet and your living environment clean and orderly.

    I hear a song coming on...

    There are those who think that life has nothing left to chance
    A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance

    A planet of play things
    We dance on the strings
    Of powers we cannot perceive
    'The stars aren't aligned
    Or the gods are malign...'
    Blame is better to give than receive

    [Chorus:]
    You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
    You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
    I will choose a path that's clear
    I will choose freewill

    Hey it could've been Floyd

    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

    So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again.
    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

    Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over,
    Thought I'd something more to say.

    Eh, Neil Young for me:

    You know I lose,
    You know I win
    You know I call for
    The shape I'm in.
    It's just a game you
    See me play,
    Only real in the way
    That I feel
    From day to day.

    Although the answer
    Is not unknown,
    I'm searchin', searchin',
    And how I've grown.
    It's not all right
    To say goodbye,
    And the world on a string
    Doesn't mean a thing.

    No, the world on a string
    Doesn't mean a thing.
    It's only real in the way
    That I feel from day to day.
    No, the world on a string
    Doesn't mean a thing.

    Your brain needs to reorganize and rewire by sleeping. The more sleep deprived, the worst your performance; there is a tradeoff. You can try drinking coffee, but just so you know caffeine is a drug, and you get withdrawal symptoms from it, such that you need more and more caffeine to stay awake each time due to your body's adaptivity. You might also feel depressed from a lack of sleep, and stop finding interest in what you do.

    Holding a pencil in position for too long will damage your hand and finger nerves. Flex every now and then. Sitting for too long on your legs on hard surface will damage the nerve in your legs, so stand every now and then.

    Don't do drugs and eat fruits and vegetables (not cup noodles or ramen, because you might find yourself spending more time sitting on the toilet). The anti-oxidants from fruits and vegetables will make you feel better and look younger. The fibers will make passing your stool eezy peezy (more time to draw).
