It's 10:39 p.m. here and we're still in the office. We're finishing our magazine tonight and turning over the pages to our Production Department for proofing. We're all tired, yes, but none of us are grumpy. In fact, we still have the energy to laugh whenever one of us says something crazy. We're like this every time we finish our monthly issues.
Staying late at night working in the office is stressful, but it becomes fun when you have co-workers who are pleasant to work with. We usually finish around midnight and go home at around that time. And when we come to work the next day (or on Monday when we turn over on a Friday), we're just relieved that the issue is over, and it's time to start a new one.
Working in a magazine is difficult but enjoyable. Creative juices just keep on flowing, and there isn't a day when I don't smile. With all the creative outputs I see everyday and with the wonderful people I meet and work with, there's always a reason for me to smile. :)
