They're paying for it; they get the final say in it. I don't have a reputation that allows me to do what I want. People seem to think "oh he's just a student/freelancer, I'll just make him do whatever I want". I now make them sign a contract with some benefits for me, but it doesn't really change the way they handle me.

Part of it's probably my fault, I'm still learning how to handle these people. Sometimes I give them too many choices so they'll end up thinking everything's possible (and start with shit like "move this 10 pixels to the right"). Plus I love getting input from people, but right now they're just taking that as a chance to walk all over me. I need to exude confidence, without being one of those pretentious designer pricks who knows everything better. It's hard. They think they're paying me to deliver the perfect thing in their eyes, without clearly telling me what it is -- I'm just being paid to deliver my view on the things they need.

I did a really awesome logo for my current client. He didn't dig it. Ah well, at least I can put it in my portfolio.

Ugh, at least it sounds like something you will get around with experience.

Who wants to read their pony horoscope (officially deemed "Ponyscope")? Here's mine:

I'm not actually much of a party-goer, but I'll take that cupcake!

Check yours here!

Also, these Zodiac ponies are sweeeeet.

Ugh, maybe you were in the "stupid annoying persons" section of the Super by mistake :excuseme:

WTH is wrong with her? insulting random persons in the supermarket. Only the magic of friendship can help this kind of people. see how I made a reference to mlp to keep the topic going?. kinda.

If there are, it's a Facebook thing. I don't use Facebook so I won't be getting anymore horoscopes, but knowing which Zodiac pony I am is good enough.

On another note, I'm prescribing to all of you your daily dose of adorable:

I bring you more adorable in the form of ponies sliding into a box!

It also works two-fold by using Monster Hunter music. Ponies and Monster Hunter: Two of my favorite things from these past couple of years. If only some day these two things could be united...
