Its another challenge in the life of a game developer but worthwhile to find that balance.

Married with 2 young kids and a full-time day job… coffee is my friend and there is a nice little window between 10pm and midnight to work on my game 🥴

I can just visualize tiptoeing to the computer, looking both ways, then sneakily tapping away hastily.

Mostly just shit on myself internally before I eventually get tired of being roasted by myself enough to force myself to make time. Internalized self hatred is great motivational fuel if you don't take it too far lol
