Working on projects when you're sleep deprived and your hair is falling out is food for nightmares!
Jesus, why am I shedding hair? I'm afraid to look at my scalp and see bald spots.

    And came a voice, the voice of jesus:
    "Ninja, you're stressed"

    Maybe there's a connection between ruining your body with too little sleep and symptoms like hair falling out.

    On top of that, people who don't sleep enough often don't observe proper nutrition either - pretty much for the same reason.

    @Fast-Nop yah. It's a cluster fuck right now. I'm just "trying" to eat well and "trying" to have a routine for sleep, in both of which I ma failing. Noodles and random naps ftw.

    @NoMad There's a high chance that this is why. I did stuff like that when I was younger, but I learnt that companies don't thank you and leave you alone with the damage.

    My solution for "can you do this, and this, and this also" was "sure, boss - tell me which of the other activities to postpone".

    @Fast-Nop I have two words in response:
    "Master Thesis"

    @NoMad Had the same issue in my final thesis, and I decided to reduce the scope a little. My final assembly version just didn't have all features of the Matlab prototype.

    @NoMad Walking seems to work for me, maybe you can also try it and see if it works for you? I used to take antihistamine or anti-psychotic to fall asleep or I'll be eating crap from late night to early morning before falling asleep then I would eat even more crap when I wake up just to get through the work day.

    Last night, my feet were so tired, I fell asleep early. If walking is not an option, masturbation works as well. :D

    @Fast-Nop Can bet you weren't aiming for specific phd programs tho 😛

    @rutee07 take me for a walk too, please 😛 I barely get out unless it is a grocery run.

    @NoMad Correct, I declined two offers for a PhD because I had seen these people work insane hours for little money and being at the whim of prof divas for years. That's when I figured that I would make more money for less work and more freedom in the industry.

    @Fast-Nop would be easier with a better friends&family support network, but unfortunately I don't even have that. Lol.

    @electrineer my best effort produces a few strands. Unfortunately I'm not capable of growing beards. 🙁

    I started to shave my hair off after the last project. It hides the bald patch well lmao.

    @Fast-Nop No-one in their right mind does a PhD for the money. It's almost never worth it financially.

    It's either done as a ticket to a permanent job in academia where (generally speaking, not always) salaries are still low but research freedom & job flexibility are high, or as a way to work full time on an interesting research project, while getting work published under your name and gaining a highly reputable qualification when you're done.

    @scout One of my aunts has a mustache. It's not as thick as a man's but it's visible like if you drew it with Mongol no. 1 pencil. She doesn't shave it because in that area, it's considered attractive.

    @AlmondSauce Agree. The problem with that is that permanent uni employment means a prof job, and there relatively few of them. If it doesn't work out, your age and overqualification are obstacles for entering the industry.

    However, given the current trends, being a woman in tech would give you massively better odds for a career in academia, so that might indeed be an option. Provided that there are no women of colour competing, in which case a white woman would still lose out.

    @AlmondSauce Just to clarify on the last one, of course I don't imply that @NoMad would need the extra card for replacing qualification.
