I switch from a Stoic to an Epicurean mindset when I can. I switch from Epicurean into Stoic when duty calls and vigilance is needed. When neither way finds a path, I switch to Cynic and remember my freedom.
Informal recording of mental activity: Some of these thoughts reoccur in different forms and eventually coalesce into more formal writings, and some are more catharsis than exposition. (A.K.A. Extra Gravy)
