Story arcs are awesome, because they're more organised and its not just daily randomness. The daily randomness is entertaining but I think its better as a story arc.
Don't overuse story arcs, it'll take away the novelty of them and variety is always good. It's like cereal, you see. I eat cereal everyday before I go to school. I have a packet of one serving of different kinds of cereal. That makes it easier to shovel it down my mouth. Imagine eating the same cereal everyday for 6 years...see how you like it.
"I shall be unfettered by all, to roam across the frontier of my world casting conformity and society to the wayside. I will let my name represent an emancipation from the confines of what others desire me to become or conform. My voice will echo across the lands and times where seekers raise an ear. I am the beginning and the end, the part and the whole."
