Crunch time

October 10, 2001

it’s crunch time, and i haven’t felt this way in so long. the tired eyes, the tumbling stomach, the achey back. the staring off into nowhere because i am so paralyzed — too paralyzed — to actually do what it is i’m supposed to be doing. the deadline, looming over our heads like a black cloud. the stress, strung across my shoulders like rubberbands about to break. and all i want is to drive away, far far away, with the windows rolled down, the music blasting and a cute boy sitting shotgun.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
