re: What’s your work/life balance like these days? VIEW POST


Not that good, but not horrible.

I work remotely so I save commute/transit time! Sometimes I work from coffee shops and co-working spaces though, it helps me focus. I work at a great place that rarely requires overtime as long as I meet my hours—technically 8 hrs a day but in reality not that strict, 2 + 2 + 2-3 hrs or thereabouts. I can set my own hours as long as I communicate it with my team lead.

I (try to) prioritize physical exercise (go to gym on avg 2-3 times/week; go for walks), not skip meals and sleep. I allocate time to visit my parents and catch up with friends.

Other than those, I pretty much code all the time. When I'm done with my day job, I either do side gigs sometimes and/or code to learn stuff. I'm fully self-taught AND a latecomer to tech, so I feel like I have sooooooo much to catch up (also, I do genuinely enjoy coding!).

It's kind of weird when your (1) livelihood (ie. work), (2) future prospects (work-ish), and (3) entertainment/fun (life) are intertwined in one place, ie. coding! Not complaining, though. 🤷🏽‍♀️
