DeveloPassion's Newsletter - Home sweet home
By Sébastien Dubois • Issue #25 • View online
Hello everyone!
Welcome to the 25th edition of my newsletter.
This week has come and gone without me noticing. I’ve spent my days in a constant rush, taking care of the children, doing roundtrips between home and the hospital, and doing laundry 😂. But it’s over now, Raphaël and his mother are home with us. Home sweet home! ✨

Sleep deprivation
Now that Raphaël is back home with us, sleep is a thing of the past. For a couple of weeks (at best), I’m going to sleep intermittently 3-4 hours per night (at most). It’s going to be tough, but it’s not the first time around for me. I can’t say that I’m used to it, but I’ve been there and survived, somehow 😂
One thing is for sure, sleep deprivation has devastating effects on the brain. Even after a single night, I already feel that my brain is going in slow motion, and I feel super irritable.
For me, the worst part of sleep deprivation is the feeling of emptiness it creates. When you finally manage to get up you have zero energy, ideas don’t flow, and everything seems annoying.
I have to put my morning routine on hold for a while. If I try to set the alarm clock at 5:30 as usual, I just won’t wake up. And even if I do, I won’t have energy and won’t be productive.
It’s tough because my habits are well established, and I hate to lose momentum. But it’s good to take a step away from the treadmill once in a while to fully taste precious moments in life. In the coming weeks, I’m mostly going to admire my son, read as much as I can, and maybe play the remastered version of Diablo 2 😄

Once again, I didn’t publish anything new this week. This feels so frustrating! But don’t worry, this won’t last long.
