Oktokolo12419312dSo you thought, making your interesting and mentally challenging hobby your job was a good idea...
Yeah, me too, comrade.
electrineer29784312dWhy not jump to a company you like instead?
yamlbreakfast119312d@electrineer I'd jump to some more relaxed environment but those are paid way less than the ones I've been on for the past 5 years. I really don't want to be working in this field when I'm over 40 (2 years ahead) so I want to earn as much as possible within my capabilities to invest in something else, have a Lean F.I.R.E and at least decide what to do with my free time. Be a baker, dog walker idk, but definitely not staring at code in a screen 12h a day. Or maybe I'll just do this as a hobby like the other comment.
jiraTicket2135311dHave you always felt this way about all your dev jobs? Or had it been a recent realisation built up over time- along the lines ”X years in this field and still…”
yamlbreakfast119311d@jiraTicket oh thank you so much for your username, it gave me a well needed laugh before going to sleep. This feeling has build up I think in my current place. I've lost all joy in the craft. I really liked it in the previous company although I gave too much and ended burned out in the end. Have a nice day/night kind internet stranger.
