You know you're a designer when

You know you're a designer when you glace at the most fabulous photo with a killer gorgeous model with out of this world shoes (which should be the focal point of the photograph), but all you can focus on are the amazing drapes framing the window in the background.  Dang!

Being a designer is not all it's cracked up to be.  The knowledge and education alone is enough to drive you mad for the rest of your life.  You'll never view colors in the same light, you'll constantly analyze fonts on signage everywhere you go, you'll touch every single blanket and pillow in every retail store you visit to feel the hand of the fabric (guilty), you'll focus on the layouts and space planning of every restaurant you visit- even training your husband to where he can now officially point out when a space has "bad design"(OMGosh, have I really done this to him)!!!?!  I need a vacation from "designer brain".
