Are you burnt out?

In this article at UI web, they help all of us crazy design types who work insane hours come to the realization that yes, we need a vacation.

I don’t know about you all, but I’ve been hovering just above burnout levels for a while. I just jump from design to music and back again. A seesaw of recharging that never just gets filled up and happy.

Good thing I’ve got some vacation coming up. Anyone have any better/other methods of dealing with their burnout?

    You could help out designing a swank-ass house in Vegas!! Yes, 'swank-ass' is an official term recognized by Webster's.

    While I'm not a member of the design community per se, I have been spending the greater part of the last month designing the GUI for my company's custom stock/option charting software. I'm working 40 to 60 hour weeks while taking 6 hours of summer courses to finish my degree. Burned out doesn't even begin to describe how I feel... I'm underpaid, over worked, and simply stated, generally bitter. I've well behind in my dream of writing and recording what I deem to be MY great American Album. Life wanks right about now, but I'll be done w/ school on August 5. 6...more...weeks...

    PSILY is a nice romantic movie and of corsue very sad.I have a bit of trouble mixing comedy with tragedy sometimes and felt a little of the sadness was lost for me because of it, although that was the idea and it has done great at the box office.Nice acting by all the cast and it was quite a line upfor sure.I loved the letters and Gerard was very endearing and watchable as always, in fact i find myself wondering what it would have been like if the story was reversed and he was the one left behind to cope with the loss, because he can show such great sorrow and emotion when he is in full flow.Love Rose
