I had a really terrible day today, and I’m not even sure why. It was just one of those days where everything you touch turns to crap. I was trying to work on a presentation with no guidelines or copy, trying to write it myself, knowing that I was taking the wrong direction. Very frustrating. The stupid software that came for CD labels was designed to be so “user friendly” that it had no functionality at all other than straight drag-and-drop. Then I couldn’t print to the colour printed for some mysterious reason. I went to get some food and the cafeteria lady was snippy with me, so I walked downtown in the cold and bought a sandwich which turned out to be on tough, stale bread. I opened the shortbread bar (which I only bought to keep the cafeteria lady from thinking that I was walking out emptyhanded because I didn’t like their food), and it shattered all over me, all over the floor. Went back to trying to design this presentation, and felt more and more uncomfortable because everyone sits behind me, in close proximity, and what I was doing sucked. I hate working when anyone can see my screen: you don’t have the option of trying different designs, as you’re being judged all the time. I felt like turning around and saying “Yes, it’s crap!!!”
*sigh* I can’t wait to go home, have a very stiff drink, and wait for this day to be over.
