Avoiding the urge to code - insomnia

[ #20129 ]

I finally made a break through in my learning C and I am actually able to write entire subs before I have to go compile and check to see if it worked right. I also finished my first project - a port of one of my very first Perl programs to C. You can read all about that if you want

The trouble is that I have a wife now. I have been very careful to only code seriously while I am at work. I get so completely engrossed in what I am doing that I tune everything/everyone else out. I forget to eat, what time it is, etc. My mind gets spinning so fast that it can not calm down enough to get a decent night's rest. This was the case last night - after finishing a movie at 10PM I tried just "finishing" up the C code I was working on.

20 minutes later I realized this was unfair to Jean and went to bed - and tossed and turned all night.

Lesson to self: You can't code after 6PM if you want to sleep.

  • Whereas I am driven to install compilers and interpreters but cannot seem to make myself write useful code again. Sigh.

    Although I'm also not married, so I might have fewer compunctions about using my time for myself.


    You are what you think.
