a burned-out case

I think I've been burned out since 2009. I should get out of tech, but nothing else in the US pays as well without requiring that I put aside my life for however long it would take to go back to college and get a degree. So I'll just half-ass things and collect my paychecks.

I've only been doing this for a few years but... Oof. I wonder if there are bits within tech where "half-ass things and collect my paychecks" is something people expect or think neutrally about, or whether it really all requires emotional attachment etc. etc.
