Feel like that almost everyday between work and Uni.. so no you are not alone..
That's the ultimate goal of work, isn't it? To make as little money as possible and to suck your soul out of you.
I have that too. I need time to unwind and relax, but I really wanna get my side projects going, too...
Yeah I def feel you. Hard to break out of this cycle. The imperfect way I try to fix it is to go hard at work for 5-6 hours instead of 8. Gives you an extra couple hours of unwind every day
ammadfa1562ySame here. I feel bad about not being productive in my free time all the time.
Most days go alone these lines for me, but I pick some days to work on stuff as well.
Balance is everything.
dmonkey16332yNo, you're not alone... Indeed that's the reason why I'm thinking to do something different than sw development for living.
qwwerty6802yFind hobbies which are different from your job. If you start to hate/be bored by your job, you won't be able to escape to and enjoy your hobbies at home otherwise, because they'll be the same/work as reminder.
Happened to me. Did not believe it 5 years back, when a friend told me the same.
&& yes, requires to stick your head out of the comfort zone and often try something completely new and unfamiliar (not an easy task for most IT ppl)
I had to open and look at the username to check if this was me.
You're definitely not alone. That basically describes my whole life.
