I gave it my best try, but I guess I asked enough questions that my glaring inexperience was sniffed out. They're pulling back the copy/text formatting stuff to in-house. I'm still going to be replacing flat graphic elements with work I made for them in the previous weeks. I'm still kind of lost, but at least I can follow a tutorial or two to learn how to do it myself.

I did tell them this wasn't my wheelhouse. But they were in a rush and just ignored me until I asked a ton of questions. Apparently I did too good of a job with my files on the previous job that they assumed I knew how to use a different program. I have worked in it before, but very sparingly. I told them that early on, didn't seem to phase them.

This is clinical medical stuff, there's really no room for pushing things around like in a magazine. Everything is uniform in size and spacing and it's a puzzle to solve, and I don't know the rules. They brought me in initially to make it less spartan and clinical... Most of the creative team is on vacation which is why they said "hey, this freelancer did a great job on job 1, let's keep her around to knock out job 2" because all designers design...

I really feel the failure today. It's all the sort of thing that were I in the physical office with them, the director would walk over, point/click/show me stuff for 5 minutes, and I'd be rolling along. But on my own with only email and rushed phone communication, I'm just floundering.


Don't let this get you down. It can happen to anyone in any field running any kind of business. Getting asked to do things you've never done before is something a lot of companies deal with. A lot of times you have enough time to figure things out and it is a stressful but rewarding experience and you profit. But when the timeline is too urgent, it can become an irreparable crisis. Be glad they took it in house. You showed you're willing on a longer project timeline. But you probably would have been f*cked on this short schedule. It's okay.

This sounds remarkably like the last few days for me. I get through the howto to get the basic stuff working, and then when you ask, "how do a authorize users based on what group they're in?" you get answers like membership_filter = "(|(member=%{control:Ldap-UserDn})(memberUid=%{%{Stripped-User-Name}:-%{User-Name}}))" and no directions on how to define how groups are listed and what attributes they map to. WTF.

 

All I can say is keep going and it'll get easier, that's what I keep telling myself. Unfortunately, this is already late for me.

Best of luck to you. It's just... all you can do is go forward. 

 

It sure is frustrating. And my head is just a cloud of all the crap people tell you; "Fake it till you make it" "Learn on the fly" my father telling me that's the basis of most of his job, "we have a problem, can you fix it?" "Yes!" no matter what, make it work. 

 

So now I feel like a fraud AND a failure... I realize it's not really my fault- it's a miscommunication, but if only I had more training/had some innate sense that made me amazing at everything, I wouldn't be letting these people down. I really feel terrible. This was my chance to really nail down some work of this type, expand my resume, actually get a job and make money... I know I can do it, but not on this timeframe or necessarily in this sanitized style.

You're right. 

 

I think I know how to do the rest of it, which they said is the more time consuming part they most need my help with anyways. 

 

But man. Guess I have yet another feather I need to hunt down to put in my cap. I didn't know what I didn't know. Now i know what I don't know, and I can fill in the gaps moving forward. Just a painful/cruddy way to learn. But aren't most lessons learned through failure?

I normally do under promise. Constantly. It's pretty much my ethos. 

 

It was just miscommunication. They said "we loved it so much we want you to do more" and I signed on assuming that meant more of the stuff I'm good at/did for them already. After I'd signed on they told me what they wanted...which was all foreign territory.

 

Had I had time, I could've figured it out and done it. As it stands, I got an email this morning essentially firing me. 

 

Mixed feelings. On one hand, I have a lot of other work I put off to do this that I can now work on. Tomorrow and Thursday will be spent prepping and doing a nasty medical procedure. Takes a lot off my mind, but I also feel like an absolute worthless failure piece of sh!t now. Officially the first time I've ever been kicked off a project or done poorly. Never failed a test (ok, one math test in 10th grade, still haunts me), never failed a project, never did badly at my old job.... so this is new and terrible and just reinforces the mean part of my brain screaming "and this is why you're broke, you suck, you're not a real designer by any stretch of the imagination".

Chalk it up to "sh*t happens". In any business you don't win every contract bid, or make every sale, or make every customer happy. Sometimes things just don't work out. On to the next stuff, specifically your bread and butter work.

Ooops, forgot to include that part. The original email I got it in was titled, "too funny". Yeah, the experience is stupid. That being said, if it were full time (with benefits) and paid right, I'd have considered it as part of a strategy to get back to WNY.

I had an EGD done this morning where they discovered an esophageal web that was most likely congenital. I say "was" because they stretched that mofo out......
OUCH!
Hurts like hell. The sore throat is nothing. That spot they stretched that thing though...I am embracing my inner sissy.

There is no way that they should be allowed to call that a liquid diet.  They're taking away the best liquid!  It's like if they forced you to be a vegetarian but then last second switched it to vegan.  You're going to take away all this good stuff from me and then on top of that say I can't have cheese either?

Worst winters ranked by state 😂

https://www.thrillis...ates-for-winter

20. New York
New Yorkers have a way of vacillating between bragging about their comparatively mild winters relative to some of your other northern metropolises (your Bostons, your Chicagos), and then switching into “STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING NOW AND BEHOLD OUR PLIGHT” mode when some serious weather comes their way. Meanwhile Buffalo’s up there under some 30ft of lake-effect snow, just alternating between hours-long shoveling escapades and quiet moments by the fireplace spent softly crying about Scott Norwood while taking shots of Frank’s hot sauce.

Eichel is a loser. What kind of bum goes 6 months without scoring? It should be easy ... there's not even a goalie blocking the net from July to August. I bet Casey Mittelstadt scores plenty of goals in the offseason. That's because he's a winner.

 

I like centers that score goals in the offseason.

I just had a phone conversation with a woman who wants to know how to go about pressing charges against a middle-school kid who tackled her son during a football game, causing him to be injured.

I'm now going to turn the lights out and weep softly to myself for a bit.


Was the kid watching from the stands?
