The Art of the Juggle

Posted by Rampant Coyote on July 7, 2016


I work 11.25 hours, writing code. I come home (late), have dinner (saved in the fridge), spend time with the family, and watch a show with the wife. And then I spend another 4 hours… working, writing code.

I like my day job. It’s not usually this bad, and I’m doing some exciting and fun things to make a living. I love my “night job” writing stories and making games. That’s very fulfilling. I love spending time with my family. They are what makes life worthwhile.

I just prefer it when it’s not so difficult to juggle these things.

I don’t really have a point here. Maybe I’m just trying to justify why today’s blog post is so short.

Have an awesome day. As crazy as it might get, I plan to have one today as well.

    You have an awesome day. Or else!

    And wow, that’s a pace I hope you don’t have to keep up long.

    I know you said you don’t usually need a lot of sleep, but you need _some_, right?

    Well, it was 12.25 hours tonight.

    Hopefully everything’s done and wrapped up with a bow tomorrow, and then I might sleep a good 10+ hours…

    Yeah, I sleep 5-6 hours a night, but I sometimes get in a little more on weekends. Unless I’m REALLY tired, if I sleep more than about 7 hours I get a headache.

    It is hard to keep up that kind of grind unless you truly love what you do. Sounds like you like your job for the most part and like working on your personal projects and of course love your family, so way to go!
