Fang Talks

The post you're reading right now is a prophecy.

Spent a big part of the day working my ass off for my job. Missed a deadline already (not the first one), and things aren’t going as smoothly as they should. Still feeling not very optimal either, in both workflow and feelings.

And as I was about to write this post, BLAM, it hits me, somewhere near the second half of March is the deadline for a site for a friend of mine (the same one who’s been filming me for her portfolio), and I haven’t done batshit about it yet. Sure, the design there, in my head and crappily sketched on paper using a pen, but daaamn.

Reality hits you hard when you suddenly realise there’s deadlines to everything, and you’re failing at meeting them.

It’s a good experience, and definitely one I’ll be using to get into proper jobs for huge companies a lot easier, but these are pretty stressful times as is and I don’t really need all the shitload of deadlines on my back, too. But I can’t and really shouldn’t quit now. The future holds promises, and I’m wanting to make sure they’re kept. Glorious loot to be rept!

Also I wonder when I’ll rake in some boondollars and climb my echeladder for this whole “job” thing.

    Deadlines… My worst nightmare. Especially when new games and shows are released just before the deadline.

    You do take on a lot of work. When you’re finished with this huge batch, don’t take on so much!

      Actually it’s my boss who’s taken on a shitload of projects, and has a huge backlog of projects that still need to be finished or even started, even though he knows his team is small.
      Well, as long as I get paid more than minimum wage, I’m cool with things. ;D
