Burnout. I’ve been there. And it’s not fun.
It was actually one of the reasons that made me quit my career as an architect. Back in 2012 we were working on a competition for a school at the office. And it was happening again: we were running late. But this time, it was the worst time ever and I ended up hitting the deadline after working 48 hours straight.
Two years ago I was lying on the couch with my husband. It was late at night. And our four-months-old baby didn't want to sleep, as usual. We were sooooo sleep deprived. Horrible place to be, trust me.
In 2015 I attended the EuRuKo Conference in Salzburg, where a friend of mine gave a Lightning Talk. I remember him preparing his slides while sitting next to me and I thought "Wow, that's such a cool thing to do!".
I believe that introducing the digital world to our children from an early age and in an unplugged way could help them have a healthier relationship with it.
I started to work as a programmer when I was 30 years old. Ever since I have been either programming, or teaching others about it. But I didn't get into computer science easily. Back in college I studied architecture instead and here's why.
We never know when the day starts. It all depends on how the night was. However once it does, I finally found a rhythm that we can follow, that allows me to spend lots of time with little boy and at the same time gives me space to work on Zerus & Ona.
