After the storm

For a number of years, all I wanted to spend my time on was code. This is apparently a common occurrence among new programmers. It is easy to get obsessed, over-focused and maniacal about learning programming. This can be very productive; it is also often a little bit unhealthy.

Anyhow, I think I am recovering a bit. I am beginning to be more balanced about my interests, rather than only thinking about code all the time. I’ve been reading books about economics, for example. While I still very much enjoy programming, I now do it in more measured doses.

Where does this lead? I’m not sure. I hope my technical skills aren’t slipping. I’m trying to strike a new balance. We’ll see how this goes.
