sleep/food/leisure/day job/exercise/ create - schedule

. Corbs on this list.

What's your typical pattern?

May 16, 18 10:36 pm

Midnight to 3 am: sleep; 3-5: other; 5-7: sleep; 7-8: day job; 8-11: creative; 11-3: food/leisure; 3-6: float; 6-7: day job; 7-8: food/leisure; 8-10: other; 10-12: sleep. Excercise sprinkled here and there. It's not really that consistent, just an approximation.

For a few years I took online classes from 2 or 3 am to about 4-5 am.

anything to stay sane I guess.

I'm a big fan of eating fettuccine at 6am while in a hot tub.

when I grow-up.

^ Find what you love and let it kill you I suppose. His dealer must have made bank.

12am to 7am-ish - Sleep. 7am-6pm - stuff associated with day job (getting ready, commute, working, etc...). 6pm-8pm - Food / Leisure. 8pm - 11pm/12am - Creative work. (any time not spent doing creative work is leisure time, depending on the day 10-midnight or I paint right until midnight).

1am to 5:30am - Sleep

5:30 to 7am - Toddler prep

7:30-8 to 5-6ish - work

6:30-8pm - Dinner/family

8:30-11pm - Climbing gym when I can make it (was thrice weekly at one point).  Otherwise leisure and creative when I feel like it.

I see what you did there.

10pm-10am bed, 10am-10pm not bed

exercise = zero

May 17, 18 2:14 pm

I have been thinking about this more. Mostly I cook, clean, and entertain other people. 

May 17, 18 2:54 pm

I - for one - find you quite entertaining. Thank you.


Good to know I'm useful. Seriously, I've had 3 groups of house guests in the last month. Bed and breakfast here.

Do you take reservations?


Why do you ask?


I actually had 4 groups of house guests, not 3. Very popular place we have here.

8pm nap? Dinner coma? I don't mean to pry

won and done williams

That's fun. Balzac and Flannery O'Connor were freaks - props to them!

Bottom line, you want to be a creative genius, quit your day job.

[BTW what the hell is "Other"?

May 17, 18 4:49 pm

Everything you can imagine. And then some. Also coffee. And Tequila. Not necessarily in that order.


when i'm manic, two to three hours of sleep

when not, 5-6.

May 17, 18 5:34 pm

It's the opposite for me, I sleep great on the manic cycle.

Interesting seeing the schedules of those non 9-5ers. As in seeing how people operate outside those narrowly defined and restrictive confines. Appreciate josh including the part where 2+ hours are spent around said ‘9-5’ which aren’t even part of the required 8 hours.
May 18, 18 2:37 am

Yeah. In a way, that commute is an hour or two we're not getting paid for by the office. We're solely doing so to get to that job. Otherwise, I can get out of bed, put on pants and walk out to my dining room/studio/home office and work.


Love how food equals leisure.

randomised and Miles hinted at something that is much more accurate for me.  it's a weekly cycle and if I consider architecture my day job, doing professional architecture, then only on weekends am I creative...see how Miles is always creative and Randomised is 50/50 on day job/create

(i work in transit and literally eat my lunch usually while walking back from the pizza place)

May 18, 18 7:06 pm

For me doing creative work is simply an integral part of my day job, luckily. Having a creative mindset is not something that you can switch on or off, as Miles indicates, even while sleeping you can work out design issues or come up with a new painting etc.

Do you even chew your food ;)

Wait, is there a link to make your own graph?
May 20, 18 9:12 am

Link? LOL. Acrylic on Bristol board. Get to work.

Sir Apple Chrissy

Be creative!!
