I can't fucking find any motivation to run personal projects anymore.

Either i am fucking around with work shit or doing something else, but I just can't force myself to sit down and code for my own sake. I call this a "rut" and it would sometimes happen when playing guitar.

If anything, I find myself studying and practicing math more than anything else.....you know you are fucked in the head when math is more interesting than coding

Another thing thst keeps me busy...smash brs ultimate is amazing, red dead redemption 2 is amazing. And i started doing crossfit on ending of October...shit is addicting.

I just have so much shit going on.....
I need to get my inspiration back

    dear god i hope i dont ever fall into the rat race like this... i can tell you exactly why you are feeling like this there is only one reason and that is because you've wasted years of your life by working at a job... they just put you a bait of salary and you fell for it, thinking its a good thing but in the long run its like pressing the self destruct button...

    @SukMikeHok what? I don't do shit at work and I keep getting raises. Work is definitely not the issue.So...no, you couldn't be more wrong even if you tried.

    What is happening is that you are depleting your dopamine levels with other activities thus there is not enough dopamine left for other hobbies. Look it up

    @zemaitis i am going for a masters in comp sci and currently work full time as a full stack dev for a college....been doing it for far longer than I've had my degree totaling 7 years of enterprise development

    What is up with people making some intense assumptions in here?

    When math is more interesting, it is definitely not a bad sign. It could boost your part of the coding brain that requires this

    Please take this advice. Do not do CrossFit. I did CrossFit for 8 months 6 days a week and I am now disabled for the rest of my life. I could barely walk a single City block for a year. The most terrible thing is that I didn't even injure myself in the gym. I was asleep and herniated a disk in my back. Do your Olympic lifts and cardio in two completely different settings. Give your body time to heal. Do not make my mistake. Do not do CrossFit.

    @Ximidar i am good fam thanks, was not asking for advice or anything. My instructor is straight and we don't do anything too different from weight lifting and cardio conditioning, we get to stop whenever we can and do stuff at our pace. If anything it has thought me how to do my other excercises properly.

    You had a shitty instructor(s)

    @asgs I am gonna treasure your comment here because you are the only one that did not make retarded assumptions or gave me unsolicited advice.

    Thanks for boosting my hopes for this community man.

    If you don't have energy to code side-projdcts, write your ideas somewhere.One day you will have energy to code, but no ideas.

    @ganjaman yo it ain't the first time I see this dude just talking out of his ass. Reading comprehension should be a must in this profession....or at least I would think.

    And I will try hackerrank, thanks bro.

    I could pass by a ny thug, I dress that way already and don't look Texas at all

    @SauceBoss we are pretty much the same in those regards man. I can't really force myself sometimes.

    I do read documentation and articles to keep myself in the loop. And I am thinking more about working out or being with my wife and child more than anything else.
