Music and developing (a day of mood swings)

During my day-to-day work as a developer, I go through a
number of moods (maybe more moods than what’s good for me), and I
thought I’d explain them with references to songs:

My day kind of starts with I hurt myself today (and some days end with it as well):

“I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that’s real”

Then, commuting to work:

“No stop signs, speedin’ limit
Nobody’s gonna slow me down”

Walk into the office:

“Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I’m expecting all hell to break loose”

“This place ain’t doing me any good”

“I used to care, but things have changed”

Then I get to my desk, and I feel like this:

“There must be some way out of here, said the joker to the thief,
There’s too much confusion, I can’t get no relief”

“There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke”

Code something, and run into trouble:

“I once believed
I wouldn’t bleed”

Trouble that makes me go out of my mind:

“I feel my world shake
I can’t look away
Hard to see clear
Is it me
Or is it fear?”

But then I find the solution:

“God Gave Me Everything I Want”

An occasional moment of despair, that eventually turns into solving the problem:

“Fight and pray”

“Oh happy day”

And then I go home… πŸ™‚
