What order do these go in?
Work or School
Love (Romanitic Relationships)
For me it is Survival then Love then Friendship then Recreation then Work or School. If I have obligations to all that is that is the order in which I would fill them.
Survival can't be a value. Without survival you wouldn't exactly have the others!
So........... my order would be............
Survival - as it's necessary for the rest
Work/School - Which I would actually put behind recreation, hockey, guitar, philosophy, sleep and rest.

Oh yeah good Idea, sorry.
However, humans have been known to sacrifice survival for love and other things.

Yeah come to think of it in certain situations (not everyday life) I would sacrifice survival for the one I loved or maybe even a friend..........
Survival is the primary value since without survival all the others are just temporary.
I really don’t place too much value on anything until I can be sure I will not die. And that is my primary activity for the moment.
Personal happiness (recreation , if you like) becomes the primary reason for living. No one ever does anything by choice unless it gives some form of pleasure to his or her self. And here some find pleasure in doing things for others, it doesn’t have to appear selfish.
School is a way to learn and obtain more knowledge – a superb form of personal pleasure.
Friendship – a form of personal pleasure.
Family – come and go – a transient period for many. If family members are friends then fine, otherwise there is no need for family loyalty unless family members are also friends.
Love (Romanitic Relationships) - are unnecessary unless one is so weak and must depend on another.
Work - is only necessary if you are not financially independent, otherwise it is a form of slavery that most have been duped into believing is unavoidable.
