Starting to wonder if I don't enjoy coding or if the corporate environment is just draining the life out of me with it's constant monotony and monotone culture. I can't bring myself to be excited about this stuff, it's so boring. It pays the bills but it doesn't keep my eyes open.

    I'd lean towards the corporate environment's draining the life out of you. I usually can offer some kind of helpful advice, maybe a strategy. In this case all I can offer is my sympathy.

    @bols59 well, the sympathy is appreciated all the same. Maybe once my student loans are paid off and I'm promoted I'll take up a cubicle at a smaller and more lively company. Who knows. Don't want to stay glass eyed and monotone for life.

    I will agree with @bols59.
    I am working in a corporation and I find coding not enjoyable at all!
    But it's good money, so I will be staying for a while.

    @Qaldim yeah it's the pretty bright silver lining. Leaving for somewhere else in the future also means being able to request a higher pay too. I just wanna get these student loans taken care of so I can actually enjoy that money 😂

    It's the environment. I worked at a big company and lost my motivation in coding. I even thought about switching careers. There is so many ad hoc asks and so little coding that I didn't feel like a developer anymore. In my new job, I got my motivation back. I can't even wait to come to the office and sometimes when I go home, I want to work on personal projects.
