Overcommitted.

I know that I am still a student, and not a “real” designer, but I have a hard time saying no to “freelance” projects…”Sure, I can make posters for that!” “Yes, I will help you with your project.” “Oh, you need someone to dogsit? Of course!” “You need a kidney…?”

It’s one of those things where you feel bad if you say no because you probably have time somewhere in your schedule to fit whatever it is in.

The problem is, every time I take on more, the things already on my to-do list get just a little bit less attention, and it’s all downhill from there. Next thing you know, you’re sitting on the floor with dirty dishes and clothes piled up around you, weeping into your coffee.

That’s when I decided I needed a solution, and here it is.
