This is mostly in the context of art types who pull allnighters as students and then feel bad about not being able to do it when they get older, and feel bad if they're not working as hard as some younger colleagues.

This is really just something you can only do in a very short part of your life. It will break down and break you down if you keep trying to do that outside of it.

Just a PSA because I realize not everyone knows this.

Some adolescents are able to stay up all night frequently. To party, or perhaps to do (home) work or art.

I don't know why, but as you grow older, you will lose this ability. This is normal as far as I know.

However, don't work all-nighters into your schedules, don't beat yourself up when you discover you can't pull the same shit you did as a student, and don't make it a habit. Take care of yourself.

Microsoft just named a project without googling the name before. Spoiler: It already exists, and it's a KDE project. Thanks Microsoft.

Absolutely, even though I'd definitely need someone who signs up for testing/maintaining that code. Help & contributions are always appreciated! ❀️
