Sitting back thinking how ironic it is that I’m literally deep into the interview process with another agency to get away from an account director who makes my life hell. I have to give up working at an awesome agency but I don’t see a way of getting away from them because they wouldn’t switch me to another account. Oh well maybe I’ll boomerang.

I’m much better with straight forward work. Full site redesigns, branding, experiential executions. Anyone else feel this way? I just hate the vagueness.
