What time do you get up on work days? I'm starting to think I should have me time in morning (reading, learning, coding my own things) before going to work.

I've think I've come the the conclusion that this job/team is sorta chaotic and tedious and there's no skill growth. Not learning anything new. Usually just something broken, integrate some new feature, build something that I've already built before but differently for this specific case. Nothing fun or challenging, or new.

And also tired of trying to be a "role model", make things right. I tend to like to keep things orderly, documented, well tested and clean but everyone else seems to just bulldoze their way to get whatever they need, leaving a mess behind... It's been like 2yrs already but the technical debt seems to be growing not shrinking...

    I try to be awake between 6:30 and 7:00, but often it's closer to 7:30 or 8:00

    On Tues and Thurs my first class isn't until 11:00. I like to try and be awake by 7:00 so I can go get groceries & run any necessary errands. I've only done it once, but I'm going to try again Thursday.

    @MrCSharp when do you sleep? What do you do in the morning?
  • 2
    6.30 because the commute takes about 1 hour + shower, breakfast and getting out of zombie mode take another hour and a half.

    I get up at about 9, have to be in by 10

    7.30 wake up, take a shower and by 8.30 I am at work.

    Traveling takes 10mins during that I read programming book (also on the way home).

    Then I take that 30 mins till 9am to read some articles online.

    And during lunch I take my laptop out and work on my side project for about 40mins. It actually the only way it works for me, because I am already focussed.

    In the evening and also weekends I just relax by playing games or reading some fiction books - no programming at all.

    First day on this new schedule.... Not too bad...

    Guess try a few days and then figure out how to plan the use of the time better.

    Perfect timing lol... Opened the app to finish the blink I started reading this morning. I read that as do what I want first, everything else can wait.
