I've done it

Sign in to follow this  


I've coded myself stupid. I've been coding so much these past few days, on several different projects that I've managed to become stupid.

Actually, I'm just experiencing a little bit of burnout, I hardly slept at all last night.. some people stay up worrying about their finances, their love life, family problems... me, I stay up worrying about whether I should try a different rasterizing approach in the morning or if I should figure out how to create a DataSet from an XML schema, or if perhaps I should continue with the 2D stuff on sgeMobile since some of it is 50% complete...

All this thinking about that kept me up, so today everytime I've tried to do any coding my mind just goes bzzzzzz...beep...access denied - systems disabled pending system reboot...beep...bzzz...

Or like those computers in fallout "You press a few keys on the keyboard, but fail to learn anything from this terminal"...

Anyway, I gotta get up somewhat early tomorrow, so I plan on going to bed at a reasonable time (like all the 'real' humans), so I should feel better tomorrow and be productive again.

Maybe I'll watch TV... I haven't done that in at least a week... I've forgotten what it's like.

I can empathize on the burnout side of things. I thought that I was shot for at least a week on my project, but instead the next day I tackled a part of the project I'd enjoy implementing -- in this case, the player-listing window with names/ping -- and actually had a fun time doing it. As a result I felt more refreshed, and squashed a handful of bugs too, while I was at it.

So just either take a break by steping away from it all for a while, or take a break by implementing something that's just fun to code. :)
