Nothing better on a Monday morning than oversleeping, realizing that that one server issue notification was a general notification app one and there actually have been loads of disruptions, trains are down...
If they're out of coffee at the station in fucking done with today already.3
Started to take vitamins. Oversleeping is gone, constant fatigue is gone, and I also feel happy for no reason.14
fuuuck, I overslept today, and I have to introduce a new team nember today and I will be too late in office because of that.
OK so i take a shower, and brush my teeth and get my clothes on in under 5 minutes (which is actually very fast for me), run for my train, just made it into it, get to the next station where I have to switch trains, and then it hits me again: 8 minutes delay, OK that made it even more bad than it was vefore, because I will miss my train on the next station where I again have to switch.
I will now end up 45 minutes too late in the office, only because I overslept. I hate me5
Oversleeping due to sleep-walking to my phone and turning the alarm off and going back to bed is a thing for me now. Fuck.
Is there an alarm clock where you have to type in different shell commands to complete a given task on Android in order to stop the alarm? If not, I'll have to do something with my Raspberry Pi...24
Overengineering. Finding the right point between overdesign and no design at all. That's where fancy languages and unusual patterns being hit by real world problems, and you need to deal with all that utter mess you created being architecture astronaut. Isn't that funny how you realize that another fancy tool is fundamentally incompatible with the task you need to solve, and you realize it after a month of writing workarounds and hacks.
But on the other hand, duct tape slacking becomes a mess even quicker.
Not being able to promote projects. You may code the shit out of side project and still get zero response, absolutely no impact. That's why your side projects often becomes abandoned.
Oversleeping. You thought tomorrow was productive day, but you wake up oversleeped, your head aches, your mind is not clear and you be like "fuck that, I'm staying in bed watching memes all day". But there's job that has to be done, and that bothers you.
Writing tests. Oh, words can't describe how much I hate writing tests, any kind of. I tried testing so many times in high school, at university, even at production, but it seems like my mind is just doesn't accept it. I know that testing is fundamentally important, but my mind collapses every time I try to write a single fucking test, resulting in terrible headache. I don't know why it's like that, but it is, and I better repl the shit out of pure function than write fucking tests.
Oh, I get it now, why I've been feeling sluggish and unproductive in the previous weeks. I've been oversleeping and overeating. I gained 3kg within 3 weeks of living with a giant early bird. I went to sleep earlier but didn't wake up earlier.
I delivered what would have been a week's worth of code in a month. I'm not overweight but with my body type, a 3kg gain is easily felt. It sucks that I still can't have my evening walks and the gyms are still closed but I'm slowly losing the weight from going back to my normal sleeping and eating pattern.
Hopefully, I will reach decent productivity again.7
