I leave for Aruba on Saturday. And usually the whole week before I go on vacation, I'm completely checked out. Head in the clouds, day dreaming of palm trees, just floating through the days.
This week? Not so much. Work has been insane. Like literally, it has never been this busy before. Ever. On top of that, the senior copywriter (who I work a ton with) is out starting Wednesday and won't be back until the follow Wednesday. And since I'm out all next week, our vacation time overlaps. Meaning....I have to get EVERYTHING done by 5pm Friday. On top of it all, everyone else from the creative team, my boss included, will be out Wednesday, the same day we have about 5 projects due.
So my coworker and I sat down to map out everything we need to do and I was feeling good. But as soon as I walked away from our meeting, my other coworker informed me that we had 2 new jobs (with multiple parts) due by Friday. I was ready to scream.
Ok yes, yes I'm rambling. Sorry. I'm just like a giant ball of anxiety right now. I know it will get done and I'm happy to be busy, but yikes. I guess I really have to work for my time off, right?
Anyway, please excuse me while I scream into my pillow. I need to let off a bit of steam.
