I haven't read everything to be honest, but here's my tidbit.
When life gets dull and boring - and that happens a lot to be honest - I generally go into some kind of dream world, where I imagine all my dreams coming true and what I would do if that happened. Like, I imagine what would have happened if I had become a professor or a real teacher. Or I imagine what would have happened if I had studied translation or become a diplomat. Or I imagine having a huge political debate and dreaming up arguments. Or I imagine becoming a topless model with lots of money who becomes famous. Or I imagine being a famous writer whose books are known everywhere. Crazy shit like that. It spices things up a bit.
Oh yeah, and if I am feeling in a particularly philosophical mood, then yes: I analyze myself, the purpose of life, the purpose of human beings, etc. etc.

True, but then again if you just focus on the past too much I think that could lead to a very negative interpretation of life being blahhh. Thats an interesting point though, how much in to the future do you need to look in order not to be too recklessly in the moment?
My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
