“But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work. We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.”

“You should accept that your identity will forever be in flux; and it’s only the range of these fluctuations that might stabilize. However, your “self” is forever fleeting and you can never count on it to remain the same. Instead of choosing an identity based on who you are or have been, choose one that is who you would like to become. It gave me a sense of direction, or something to chase. You should try that.” - @neauoire

I like _plant based_ spicy mayo quite a lot. Aside from that; I produce electronic music and I'm currently learning code and visual creation. I like studying the nature of creativity in my free time.
