I used to have tons of little side-projects I would start working on the moment the "work day" was over, until I was ready for bedtime, and then weekends, but eventually I totally lost the motivation.

I certainly don't dislike coding these days - I'm looking towards retirement to complete a lot of these projects of mine. I have fun working on that stuff and could do it all day (if that's the only thing I was doing), but unfortunately none of my "coding for fun" ideas would ever evolve into something that pays the bills. So until I can afford to do it all day, I work for The Man.
