I can’t sleep. My body, stubbornly refusing to accept that it must be at work by 7AM, is staging a rebellion.
That’s fine. It’ll pay for it tomorrow.
I’ve been looking over my old design directory, at all of the sites I’ve built and abandoned over the years, and they all feel like they were built by strangers much more dedicated and talented than I am.
Years ago, I asked my closest friends for advice: Given a choice between music, design, and writing, which should I focus on? In what medium did I do the best work? Universally, my friends replied: Writing first, design second, and music last.
I chose music, as it turns out, and I’ve been very happy with the results. In retrospect, I’m sure part of my motivation for choosing it was that everyone ranked it last. Looking back over these old sites, however, I’m not sure I made the right choice.
Did I really design all these things? One after the other after the other? How the hell did I do that?
And what the hell am I doing now?
