Great article! Congrats with engagement!
Here are a few things that may or may not help:
More side projects: Code something that fixes one burning problem for you. For me it was trying for example to meet half way 3 friends, which can be impossible in London, so I started coding on a meet me half way app.
Teach: start with non technical people is a great exercise of simplifying complexity. Me trying to explain to my mom while I was practicing for a training, was not only funny but also great for finding simple analogies.
Read books: Leverage the time you are waiting in a queue, traffic, commute, wash dishes, by listening to audiobooks. What ever you don't enjoy, make it more fun with books.
Hangovers: drink water, dehydration is the biggest contributor to hangover. Take this from a part russian that never had a hangover in her life.
Just try, hope this helps :)
