A Day in the Life of a Software Engineer and YouTuber in New York City.

– A day in the life of a Software Engineer & YouTuber is like riding a rollercoaster through the clouds. It’s a whirlwind of juggling code dragons by day and creating a content empire by night. Sometimes I feel like I’m on top of the world, other times I’m just trying to Google what a lime is. It’s a wild ride, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. 🎢🌟

The Morning Routine of a Multitalented Individual 🌅

As a software engineer and YouTuber in NYC, life can feel like a whirlwind. Every morning, I like to start the day with some classical music. This habit helps ease the anxiety of waking up and prepares me for the day ahead. As I drink from my red Solo cups (my makeshift solution to not having proper cups in my new place), I reflect on my recent loss of that childlike wonder and excitement. Despite this, I make it a point to start the day with a workout routine to rejuvenate my spirits.

Balancing Work and Passion Projects 🎨

After taking a look at my daily calendar, I migrate to my home office to tackle work tasks before transitioning to the bustling office scene. Ensuring to soak in some sunshine and fresh air during lunch at the rooftop terrace, I seek to elevate my work-life balance. Working on the security team as a backend software engineer introduces a new adventure for me. While I acknowledge the transition and appreciate the annual performance review process, I can’t help but miss my days as a full-stack developer.

The Hustle Continues Beyond Office Hours 🌟

My passion for creating content on YouTube comes to life after clocking out of my software engineering endeavors. Managing weekly uploads and keeping up with my channel’s rhythm is no easy feat, yet it brings me a different kind of fulfillment. As the evening approaches, my trusty task management tool helps me maintain my focus and goals for both my professional career and creative pursuits.
