Production Week

It’s production week here at Casino Connection magazine. I was freaking out at the beginning of the week because we have this 80 page magazine to produce and I’m more or less responsible for laying out the entire thing. I get a little help from my coworker, but she’s focused on ads mostly so it’s up to me.

I’ve decided to wear a particularly ugly Christmas sweater every single day this week, without washing it. It’s day three, and it still smells pretty good. One of my coworkers even got me an ugly pin to wear with it.

Well, I’ve been coming in early and staying late to get this magazine completed. It’s almost done, and a little ahead of schedule, which is nice. I am actually sitting around now, twiddling my thumbs, waiting for people to send me text so I can finish the last part. We send it to press tomorrow, and review blue lines on Friday.

I have been drinking a lot of coffee and now I have a headache from not eating today. Other than that, I have no complaints. This is my second issue of Casino Connection as art director, and already I feel like the second issue is way easier than the first one, simply because I know the amount of work I’m in for.

I am leaving for Tulsa on Saturday to visit my parents for the holidays. I’ll be heading up to Kansas City to see my brothers and other family on the day after Christmas. I am getting a week off, and looking forward to it greatly.

Oohh…Looks like I got some more text in for another section of the magazine, time to design.
