The 120-Hour Workweek - Epic Coding Time-Lapse

Last week I set out to see how many hours of programming work I could do in one week on CodeCombat, our multiplayer programming game for learning how to code. I clocked in at 120.75 hours. Here's the epic time-lapse video I generated from Telepath (watch in 1440p if you can):

So what did I learn from this experiment?

Adjustable height desks are amazing.

I bought one from Ergo Depot a few days before. I must have switched between sitting and standing fifty times last week. I would never have survived otherwise.

So I've had a week/10 days of grief.

It's what I say when I have momentary depression periods. About every 6 months or so I get overwhelmed with life and spend time resting. I sleep, I eat vegetables, and I cry. Weep is more accurate really. I've also spent a large amount of time blowing my nose as I caught this stupid flu bug going around which hasn't helped things. Sore throat, headaches, ear pain - the works. It's sucked.

I just get overwhelmed with responsibilities. I do my best, but I just need to accept that this is part of my life and who I am. So I try to be kind to myself and understanding. I often start to beat myself up, but it's hard. I probably would've been able to keep going if it wasn't for this stupid flu though, it's hit me for 6.

I've struggled with depression and anxiety most of my life. It's hard, but it's me.

I've been working on the list thing. I've folded and put away all my clean washing and I've cleaned and sorted the desk. Things are looking clean at least.
