Insanity Defined

Standing in our office kitchen, eating a bowl soup (not pictured) and ribs. Strange things happen on busy weeks.

I have this insane habit of standing and eating my meals when I’m sometimes under stress. I don’t know why, maybe it just makes me feel like I waste less time and can quickly move onto the next thing on my list.

After 6pm today, I’ll have a brief period of 18 hours of downtime where I won’t think or talk about work. I’m going to have a grown-up sleepover with my friends, drink, eat good food, play games, watch movies, and just generally be a kid again for 18 hours. After that, my carriage is going to turn back into a pumpkin and I’m going to pull another weekender.

The definition of the word “insanity” would’ve looked like this week. I don’t know if I’ve ever launched a website in under 5 days, but I didn’t think I could learn and deploy a new system in less than 8 hours and, well, I managed to do that this week. Quite honestly it takes a special kind of masochist to work at an agency. You have to enjoy suffering to a certain extent because you know that when the pain is over, you’ll have something amazing.

With that being said, I just need to keep my head above water for one more week before things will (hopefully) calm down again.
