Time traveler syndrome


#1

I have this situation I decided to make coffee and take a short break for working for 3 hours. But when I checked the time it’s been an hour passed since I took that short break that I thought is just 10 minutes

Welcome to our club :grin:

Ha ha. Cool. I wish I could make a 12 hour shift pass like that…


#4

I don’t know. Give me a hard enough coding problem and my six hour shifts pass by in no time!


#5

But the problem is, it only happens during breaks. I wish I could do that in my working time


#6

Just do something you enjoy doing, and time passes so quickly. But do a job you hate…

When I worked with computer graphics, I’d often go past the end of the day, without even noticing.

Yeah working on computer makes the day really fast.


#8

I have hyperfocused for long hours on coding or various hobbies or painting or reading; and only noticed the passage of time when my hands start shaking from not having eaten for a long time! Now I drink lots of tea & water which forces breaks every couple hours or so :slight_smile:

@khagen I was just thinking what a brilliant idea this was, then remembered that my bladder also has superpowers when I go into hyperfocus :woman_facepalming: :joy:

I had a similar problem before being put on Lithium and Risperdone. Now if I ignore the need to pee I just wet myself.
