Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?
Generally, anything that I would find less attractive, I tend to tackle first so the rest of the day is smooth sailing. Also lists are SO important.

What tips would you give to improve productivity ?
Time to breathe. Getting up and getting coffee from the cafe down the street is a great way to clear your mind and look at a project with fresh eyes.

You're better than your colleagues to :
Remember to relax.

What is the best advice anyone has given you ?
Life isn’t fair, get used to it.

Organization and interest. If you care, it will be less of a task.

What is your routine start and end of the day ?
I wake up, focus on my eyeliner application, drink tea, car pool to school, work on various projects, return home and spend time with my dog. Somewhere in the middle I do usual hygiene activities, read graphic novels, and pretend I’m in a band.

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without?
I did have an original Nintendo, which consumed the most of my time as a kid and a new adult, which recently died. I haven’t really moved on since.
