It was the time I worked in a startup as the only "tech guy". I was literally living in the office back then, working about 10 - 12 hours a day for about a year in order to deliver two MVPs.

To maintain my health I would do intermittent fasting and meditated for 30 min a day. I learned so many things about software development and UI/UX design, but I was also really lonely — I would sometimes walk outside just to see other people to stay sane LoL.

I don't regret it but I would never do that again.
