R & R

So after finishing up a post on better work/life balance and sacrificing some of the luxuries in life, I’m hitting the campground this weekend for some much-deserved outdoor therapy.

Heading up to one of my favorite SoCal spots, McGill campground in Frazier Park, Ca.

I’ll post some pictures when I get back. I can’t wait!!

Work/Life Balance

So recently I’ve found myself sleeping less and less and as a result being more and more tired. It didn’t take long to figure out that my work/life, or should I say, work/school/life balance was completely out of whack.

Balancing a full-time job with a full school schedule, and still finding time to squeeze in normal “life” stuff like working out, camping, going out, is tough. I still don’t know how I did it at Cal Lutheran and Pierce. Not shitting on those schools, but Computer Science at UCLA is kicking my ass right now, yes I’m doing well, but procrastination and cramming, combined with intense study sessions are draining my reserves. I have nothing left after a full days work plus school two nights per week.

I need to find a better balance of everything. The logical, and obvious answer would be to sacrifice some of my guilty pleasures for the sake of a better future for myself. Coding and Computer Programming is no joke, especially if you’re like me and have no prior coding experience, you need to pay attention to EVERY detail.

That’s it for today, I’ll try and post more when I can find the time that is.
