1 My style of working is manic. I used to get obsessed over books and projects to such a degree that I would forget (or choose to ignore) basic hygiene, chores, socializing, assignments―would throw any resemblance of a sleep schedule out the window. It's very hard to maintain relationships with this type of lifestyle and jobs that can take advantage of this are rare―I keep a sleep schedule now and make sure that I change my shirt once in a while.
2 I've had to deal with this with creating this website. At first all I wanted to create was a simple html site and for it to remain "in the background" compared to my writings...but now I'm finding myself spending a huge amount of time optimizing the visual aesthetics and the code. I've had to tell myself to focus a bit more on the actual content and the writing.
