The day thing has just gone insane. It seems like one of those wave things happens and too many people need too much stuff for which they waited way too long to get in the pipeline. I have two major projects of which I can't get to work on because of all the other last minute work.
Dear people, waiting until the last minute will not get you bumped up in the queue, nor will it lead to an automatic, "yeah, whatever you want to do" response. What it will lead to is your not getting your work done properly or on time.
Say, have I mentioned I'm the only designer for a $0.5 billion dollar company? Yeah. I work like two to three designers tied together in symbiotic siamese twin designer tour de force. But that's still not enough.
So, tomorrow I jump back into the shark pool again. Because that's the way I'm built.
