someone probably could have done it better

Sleepless

You know the drill by now. It’s Whump Week Day 5- Insomnia/Mental Illness.

Have some klance late night training bonding after a rough mission.


Keith found himself returning to the training deck. He didn’t know why he started doing it, but now he couldn’t stop. Any time his emotions got to be too much, he buried them by fighting the training bots, sometimes for hours on end.

This practice quickly became a habit for any difficult situation, any time he simply couldn’t calm down without exhausting himself physically. So, it was really no surprise that after a terrible mission like that he would do this.

What was surprising, however, was that someone else was already using the room.

Lardo gives Nursey her dibs. Dex gets Ransom and Holster’s. It’s… unexpected. The attic was for d-men pairs, it fit two people just fine. It was tradition. Just two weeks prior to them revealing their decisions, Shitty had been over, ranting about the legacy of the d-man attic.

“It’s been an established institution since Davey Smith and Jordan McIntyre of the class of ‘02!” Shitty had said. “It has fostered camaraderie in the Samwell Men’s Hockey team for over a decade!” Then he started crying, though that might have been because of the alcohol and the nearing end of his first year at law school.

Individually, Nursey and Dex both assumed that they’d get the attic and Lardo would give her dibs to someone else on the team, maybe even Ford after all the works she’s done this semester. Neither was particularly happy about it, because though they get along much better now, they’re still very different people and living in the same room would probably not go over too well. But they had accepted it as a thing.

They shared rooms on as many roadies as they could, for practice, and Nursey slept in Dex’s dorm whenever his roommate was occupying their dorm by screwing his girlfriend. Dex stopped leaving piles of books on his own desk, thinking that he’d have to share a desk with Nursey next year and knowing that Nursey needed space to write. Nursey stopped throwing clothes on the floor after he took them off, because he knew that Dex hated a messy floor and that, at one A.M. after a night compsci-ing his way into an early grave, Dex would be too tired to pay attention to where he was walking.

However subconsciously, they both thought that they’d be sharing the attic in their junior year. It was a given. Though they knew it wouldn’t be easy, they had expected it.

And now…

They won’t say that they’re disappointed, because they shouldn’t be; they’ll be living in the Haus, with Chowder and Bitty, and they won’t have to pay for off-campus housing or deal with wacky roommates. They’re included; they were given dibs. And living together would have incited daily fights, probably. So they’re not disappointed. They’re not. They can’t be.

But, well.

“Congrats, man,” Nursey says, smiling easily at Dex as he enters the Haus kitchen. Bitty stands at the stove, making something for dinner and chatting with Jack on Skype. “On your dibs,” Nursey clarifies when Dex seems confused.

“Oh. Oh yeah.” Dex shrugs, smiling weakly. “I got the bigger room,” he says competitively. Nursey grins back.

“At least I don’t have to climb all of those stairs.”

“You could use the cardio,” Dex shoots back.

“Yeah, well, you don’t need all that space.” It’s too cutting, too pointed, too cruel for what they’ve built out of the animosity of last year. Nursey looks away, guilty, but he wouldn’t have recognized the expression on Dex’s face even if he hadn’t. Nursey has never seen what Dex’s face looks like when he agrees with something.

Marinette’s pencil brushed lightly across the page as she shaded the sketch of Chat Noir, sitting casually on her balcony’s railing.

“How’s it going?” he asked.  She wasn’t sure how he managed to stay so still, in the same pose, without altering his expression.

“Almost done.”  Catching the pencil in her teeth, she rubbed at the graphite with her thumb to blend it better.  "Just need the last few touches on the background.“

"How do you do that?”  The cat was definitely curious.

You know how we aren’t sure why Jackie trust Hyde so easily since season 1, always going to him when she’s feeling blue? Here’s a headcanon for you all.

After she discovered who cut her hair in Cheerleading Camp, Jackie tries her best to continue her life as if nothing had happened. If someone asked why she cut her hair, she answered with a big smile, saying she needed a change. 

But when the girl comes back from camp and they run into each other at the pool, Jackie gets burned by her and her cliqué so easily, it’s something to feel second hand embarrasment for.

While crying near the boy’s bathroom, someone asks her if she’s okay or if she needs help. When she looks up, a very wet Steven Hyde is leaning towards her face with no apparent expression.

Jackie tries to explain but she’s still crying and he can’t understand a single word she’s saying. So he sits down and puts a hand on her back, like there-there, and waits for her to calm a little. 

When she’s done, he asks again if she needs something. Jackie shooks her head and he asks if it has something to do with her hair. Everyone knows about her hair.

“It was Rachel.” She says. It probably means nothing to him but it kind of makes her feel better to have someone listening to her.

“Okay,” he says and makes sure she is fine before leaving her.

Jackie thinks that’s nice, and lets it go.

Later, Rachel comes to her yelling something about how could she tell someone like Hyde what had happened during camp, that her image is now ruined because everyone thinks she’s a bad person. Jackie doesn’t know what is happening, but they hear Hyde’s voice as he walks towards them.

“You let that girl alone, Rachel. Or maybe you’ll wake up without any hair on that shitty head of yours.”, he says. Everyone hears it and everyone laughs, and peace comes to Jackie once classes start.

None of them ever talked about it, she never got to thank him properly. It was a little disappoining that he didn’t like her when she started to date Kelso, but once they are older and together, she tells him that’s why she always felt safe with him.

Because even without knowing her at all, he decided to stand for her when she more needed a friend.

djeremiha  asked:

Care to explain to me how McHanzo came to be? 'Cause I don't get it...

Between you and me, I’m not sure how it took off. I think it started as a small group of people who liked how they looked together (in an aesthetic aspect) and thought they’d make a cute couple, but I don’t know for sure. However, it’s become more than just, “These two guys look super hot together omg!” and I know a lot of people who look beyond the fact they’re both attractive, older men.

Personally, it was never on my radar when I first bought the game and got into the fandom. Somehow, one of my sister’s mutuals on here had reblogged an invite link to a McHanzo Discord server and told me, “Hey, look, people ship McCree and Hanzo. Weird, right?” and at that point, just for the hell of it, I said, “Can you text me the link?” and I joined the server just to check it out (and to spite my sister when she questioned if I even liked McHanzo, which I took as a challenge). As soon as I started looking into their backstories and understanding who they are as individuals, I realized they were two pieces of the same puzzle. 

Nowadays, people like myself enjoy the ship because of the dynamic and the potential they have. McCree and Hanzo both have rocky pasts and a whole lot of baggage that weighs them down. They’ve got sins that just won’t let them be, they’ve got a love for alcohol, and they’re a little rough around the edges. When put together, they could provide emotional support and stability for one another, seeing as that they’ve both done things they’re not proud of and probably need someone to talk it out with. Who better to vent to than someone your age who’s been dealt a shitty card in life too?

You’ll see different interpretations of McHanzo everywhere you look, but the core of it all is that if given the chance, they could be really good for one another. They both need someone who can relate to the shit they’ve seen in life, who won’t judge them for what they’ve done, and I think they’d find that in each other.

@davekatweek Day 4: Sadstuck. :(                                                                        

Immortality sucks.

I hope this was good enough. Taken four hours and it’s 1 in the morning. what am I doing?

How I got here

A few days ago I was working on this image from Canada Cliffs in Acadia National Park, and caught myself wondering if it was really that good.  I was questioning if it was worth sharing.  I did post it, and realized after the fact that my past self, the version of me from 2013 who was standing in a field in the dark, attempting to photograph the big dipper, and wondering if i was doing anything right, would be excitedly asking how i did that.  It changed my perspective in a way i definitley needed.  

Could I do it better?  I hope so, and I will probably go back and shoot from this location again.   I already have ideas for different techniques to try here.

Has someone else already done it better?  Maybe, but it doesnt mean i cant do it too.

Would Kyle from 2013 look at it and get excited and be inspired to learn how to do it?  Hell yeah he would, because I think its comparable to photographers I admired and learned from, and am still impressed by.

So lets go on a little adventure through time, starting in December 2013 on a frozen pond in Colchester, Vermont.   I couldnt feel my feet or fingers, but holy crap those specks on the back screen are stars! So it was fine.  Toes aren’t that important.

March 2014, and I got an intervalometer and and learned how to stack images to make startrails.   It was also super cold this night at the edge of Lake Champlain in Milton, Vermont.

May 2014, and its milky way season in the northern hemisphere again, if you go out at 3am.   If i remember correctly, I slept about 3 hours before going out and shooting through sunrise, and then went straight to work (and transformed into a zombie). My co-workers were not impressed.  I thought this image was super amazing.

October 2014, and lightpainting and combining images with different exposure times come into play.  AM Foster covered Bridge in Cabot, Vermont. Yes, the same Cabot as the cheese.

March 2015, and Ive entered the realm of composites, and learn about the joys of photoshop layer masking.

June 2015, and ive upgraded my equipment from a Nikon d70s to a d7000 (which is till my primary camera) and my maximum ISO has tripled, allowing me to capture more detail in the night sky.  I had essentially reached a point in my skill level that my old equipment was starting to hold me back.

Jan 2016.  Startrails, multiple exposures, masking, blending, essentially refining my process and practing.  (and learning from the past and dressing properly for winter at night in the northeast.  I could feel all my fingers and toes that night.  Height of land in Rangely, Maine.

June 2016.  I’ve made it to Acadia!  OMG Im actually shooting from Sand Beach!  First full arch milky way panorama!  just trust me that this is HARD and took a really long time to shoot and merge because there are over 30 images there.

October 2016  Maybe one of my best pieces so far?  Again, multiple exposures, lots of images, lots of masking and blending. Almost giving up several times, starting over at least 3 times. 10 hours of work is probably a low estimate on this one.  I explained my process here, which is essentially the same work flow as how I do the majority of my images now, and a workflow that took years to practice and develop.

And finaly, 2 weeks ago, July 2017  From the southern coast of Mount Desert Island in Down East Maine

Art is hard. It takes a lot of practice and repetition, and most importantly, time and patience.  It’s not going to happen overnight, but the image you manage to create will gradually get closer to the image you’re imagining, as the the best you can do gets better. Sometimes you just have to compare yourself to your previous best to see any change.

Looking at your art and seeing flaws isnt always a negative thing, but a way to find things to practice more, so your next personal best will hopefully be better.

Never stop learning.

I can’t believe I almost didn’t watch Beauty and the Beast bc of Tumblr. Because I’ve seen it today and there isn’t a single thing about it I didn’t love (except maybe for the cheesy pop version of Beauty and the Beast in the credits)

I’ve never seen so much (absolutely unjustified) pettiness surrounding a movie that hasn’t even come out yet??
Like ”The dress looks shit” “LeFou is no proper gay representation” “Luke Evans is not beefy enough to be Gaston” “lmao singing more like autotune” “Why didn’t they cast someone who can sing as Belle” I could go on

If I see this “look at how stupid the dress looks” post ONE MORE TIME I’m going to scream into my pillow for a very long time. Like, if you know a thing or two about sewing you can see it certainly isn’t cheap and wasn’t made by someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

Yeah it’s not the infamous ball gown, but Emma Watson explicitly said that she wanted to be able to move freely in this dress and you can’t really do that in a ball gown and corset, can you.
Also, if you actually bother to not judge the dress by one still you’ll see that it was probably sewn to look absolutely stunning when it’s moving. Because it does. 
“But even cosplayers could have done it better” And I bet that the Disney costume designers could have made an equally pretty dress, but try to put one of these cosplayers on a horse. Or make them dance for what is probably hours until the producers have enough takes they’re satisfied with.

Tl;dr: Stop calling the dress ugly and cheap, because it is not.

“What are you doing?” You ask, voice harsh as it fills the quiet room. You look down at Namjoon, frowning slightly as he tries to move his arms from the ties that are around. “Baby, I told you not to move. Why are you moving?”

Namjoon doesn’t answer, he only calms his actions down as he watches you walk round to the side of the bed that he was furthest from. You can hear his shallow breathing but it doesn’t change what you’re doing – you had a plan and it was going to be exacted whether Namjoon liked it or not.

He looked up at you, his eyes darkened. You may have feared that look if you were the one in his position, but you weren’t tonight. “Princess, what are you doing?”

anonymous asked:

I've been an SM for 4yrs & find socialising very difficult. I'm very friendly but I tend to keep to myself. Pple invite me to things & I always politely decline (I don't even join for opening night drinks). Everyone says that succeeding in this industry has a lot to do with ur connections & because of my social anxiety, I rarely make any. I love my job so much& I'm the type of person who lives to work. I worry my career won't last. Do u think s/b like me could ever have a long/successful career?

The short answer is: yes. You can absolutely have a long and successful career in this industry as someone who has difficulty socializing. However, it would be EXTREMELY difficult to have such a career as someone who NEVER networks. 

As somebody with an anxiety disorder, I hear this in a huge way. I don’t want to spend any more time with most of these people than I have to, and I am often in desperate need of some alone time to recharge and it’s not worth shoving through bodies to get an over priced, watered down whiskey by myself, followed by the inevitable overheating and being shoved around or awkwardly standing near a conversation instead of being part of one. It’s always too loud, too many people, too expensive, too sweaty, and I’m too tired to deal with it. I never want to put in the effort to look nice. And even when I do go, I’m too clumsy to say anything ingratiating, and too proud to kiss anyone’s ass. I’m pretty terrible at talking myself up. In fact, without someone else with me I usually forget to talk about me. I’m bad at networking and it doesn’t get me a lot of job offers. However, the offers I do get are because I’m a pretty good engineer, and I’d rather have those offers than ones purely fueled by name recognition and a glass of wine. 

Is it considerably easier to get jobs by being good at networking? Sure, for a time, but no matter how well you schmooze, you’ve eventually got to be able to back it up with your skills or technical knowledge. It’s almost machiavellian in a way. It is better to be good at your job than good at schmoozing if both cannot be attained. 

Yes, this industry is about connections and networking, but the leg work of that isn’t entirely done at the bar or party. Do good work. Be the best damn stage manager you can be. If you prove that you can get the job done, then the people around you will probably take notice. When they hear someone needs a stage manager, any one of them could drop your name. Be additionally vigilant and proactive when jobs become available. Apply and stretch out. Grow your network in the work place. 

Some times you absolutely have to put the time in, though. Putting in a brief appearance at opening and closing parties is smart, if not necessary. If you can power through 10 minutes of it, congratulate the director, producer, etc. and make sure they know your name (or at least hear it) you stand a better chance at being rehired, being offered additional contracts that they control, or of them recognizing your name when you apply for some other gig. 

There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back {S.M}

non-requested// blurb based off of Shawn’s new single, “there’s nothing holdin’ me back”

author’s note// im shooketh shawn’s new song has given me my will to live back someone 2pifhiwuqehfkjwefhckjuwe it is just so ding dang good!!!! 

masterlist

She was just a little bit.. Rambunctious may be the correct word. She was everything Shawn had wanted in life and more. He had meet hundreds upon hundreds of girls, but there were none that even held a candle to her. She was beautiful, but not the kind of beautiful that all of the other girls were. She was the kind of beautiful that was that she was so herself that it was impossible not to stop and stare. As she was dancing at that random club he had stopped in while on tour, he felt his heart fall hard and fast. It seemed absolutely ridiculous, love at first sight, but her long black hair flying, her dark arms waving above her head, she didn’t care at all who saw her. 

So of course he had to talk to her. Of course he had to know this beautiful girl’s name. This was just the start of her completely controlling him. The first known instance of Shawn throwing away his inhibitions for this girl. He pushed himself into the crowd, making his way towards her as fast as he possibly could. 

“You like this song?” He asked, awkwardly bopping. He wasn’t much of a ‘dance like there’s nobody there’ type of person. But she obviously was, because she saw him, she may have even recognized who he was, and she continued to flail around loosely to the beat of the song, answering his question with a simple;

“I’ve never heard it before.” He was so drawn to her. He wanted to go wherever she went, he wanted to always be with her. 

Oh, and he made sure that happened.

After she got tired enough to go get a drink, he followed her. 

“Following me?” She had smirked, turning around for just a moment, continuing to walk towards the bar. 

“I’m sorry I ju-” She turned around completely, completely stopping to face him, a grin plastered on her face. 

“Just come sit with me, okay?” And that was it. He was hooked. He was addicted. From that moment on, he took her everywhere. Tour, home, everywhere you could imagine and then some. It’s like every last little bit of sense that was in his brain was shaken out violently. He didn’t care, as long as he was with her. The news had horrible headlines, showing Shawn getting blackout drunk with her, and being rude to fans, and much worse. Of course, he didn’t care. He loved it more than anything when she totally threw caution to the wind and did whatever the hell she wanted. There was nothing holding her back, and he loved it so much. He loved her so much. She made him happy, she made him feel more alive than he ever had before. She made preforming much better, before every single show he had she would always tell him “just imagine everyone naked!” It was one of the most cliche things you could tell someone to get rid of nerves, but it worked. It may have not even been the verbal encouragement that helped, it was probably just the fact that she was there, watching him. It was wonderful, they were so happy. Shawn had done things he had never imagined and she taught him to stop caring about what everyone else thought. She helped him learn to be more alive. It would have been better if he taught her how to dial it down, maybe realize the opinions of others matter just a little, and there are people always watching especially when you are in the public eye. 

Of course, they took things too far eventually. Shawn’s career was going downhill. He could barely sell his albums to where they needed to break even. It wasn’t the music, all of his music and songs were inspired by her, they were crazy and loving and passionate. But they saw all he was doing. They saw his “crazy girlfriend”. They saw that he cut all meet and greets because she asked him to. He didn’t even bat an eye doing whatever she wanted. Deep down, he knew that it wasn’t good. He knew that they would get out of control, their love would spiral out of control to an almost catastrophic point. They had lost their minds, completely. They took it way too far. 

But he didn’t care. He had her. He loved her more than he loved anyone in this world. She meant the world and more to him. He was under the impression that if he had her his life would be completely okay. He thought that she was the only thing that mattered. 

Maybe he was right, maybe he wasn’t. The only thing he really knew was that he loved her. 

author’s note// hey hey hey i love shawn mendes more than i love myself okay have a good night!!! also sorry this was short!! i really kinda like it tho!!!

Letting them Go - Part I


So let’s say you had a friend whom you adored. They were very important to you, and the two of you were quite close. Let’s say they leave on an extended trip, something that will send them away for quite some time. It’s rough, but you’ll endure. Besides, you’d never want to hold them back, right? Now let’s say that everything goes wrong. You live a year on the words that this friend has died in the act of duty. Searching, painful, lonely days believing in nothing but blind faith and watching the stars as you beg them to send them home.

But a miracle happens. They return! All that anguish, all that fear vanishes with the single minded purpose of reunion. Your first words are quiet and soft, but it’s full of the promise of a better tomorrow. You can finally rest.

So then, how hard would it be to let them go again?

Nct Dream reacting to you being more savage than Haechan

“I wonder who said they’ll treat us to lunch today”

“What are you trying to say Donghyuck?”

“Oops, you heard me. Where’s my food, i’m hungry”

He sides with you often but occasionally though, he sides with Haechan and goes against you, but y'all end up laughing about it in the end.

“Jeno!! Y/N’s being mean to me again”

“Hyuck, shut up. You started it”

“No, YOU did. Look at this woman trying to act innocent”

“Oh please, says the one who always acts like a child”

“I- Jeno! Help me”

“I agree with Y/N though…”

Y'all had your first arguement and teasing battle when you found out he had secretly eaten your chocolate, and being the sly and little savage you are, you decided to tease him for the rest of the day, making him flustered and speechless for the rest of day. He then realised that only you had the power to make him feel that way, and small little arguements became a daily thing for you two.

Like Jeno, he wouldn’t do or say much other than laugh at the way you’d always tease Donghyuck and bring up things to embarrass him, something the members were not capable of doing. He’d always tease and laugh at Haechan whenever he ‘lost’ to you, and give you small little encouragements to tease Haechan even more, “Yes Y/N, you’re doing great haha”, “Haechan ah! Just give up already”

Lots of dolphin screams and laughter, and is always there watching and giggling with Jisung when the both of you argue. Is probably your #1 fan and sides with you ALL the time, “Go Y/N!! You are the best!”, which makes Haechan pout and upset too. Likes teasing Haechan with you, but doesn’t go too overboard because he knows he’s probably not gonna live once he goes back to the dorms.

“Don’t make me bring up that one time you cried on stage but acted like nothing happened-”

“Shut up, you cry more often than me”

“Oh are you sure? Chenle ah, what do you think?”

“I think… Y/N is right hehe!”

“Chenle ah… Are you sure you want to do this?”

“Hehe hyung, i love you, but Y/N’s the best!”

This other savage would take every chance to tease Haechan with you, like how he does in Yaja time. Likes to laugh and giggle at Haechan when he gets flustered and has nothing to say to you, but stops immediately when he sees Haechan’s glare. But both of you are like partners in crime and is always on the mission to make Haechan stop being savage for the rest of the day.

You better believe it dude

When I went to the Glendale office and met a bunch of other fans I was just standing there and said “Yo anybody want some cheezits” and then i pulled some cheezits out of my bag that I bought explicitly to offer to other people and held them out, and someone said “That was probably the most in character thing you could have done just now” 

Like the Heart Goes Chapter 12: What a tool I am, what a fool I’ve been

Pairing: Past Rob Benedict x Reader, Reader x Adam Fergus

Summary: Breaking up is hard. Especially when you are going through it publicly. Rob and Reader are doing just that; trying to navigate the difficulties of an emotional breakup while still trying to remain civil enough to work together, and adding inquisitive fans and over involved friends to the equation certainly isn’t helping.

Rob knows that he’s a screw up. But, does everyone else have to keep reminding him of it?

Word Count: 2323

Warnings: angst, swears, even more questionable life choices

Note: A couple of people asked for Rob’s POV in this fic. I gave it a shot because you asked so nicely. Not sure if it works, so if if it’s terrible, just pretend it didn’t happen.

Okay, for real though. I have so many other things I need to do but I literally wrote two chapters in one day. What am I doing with my life?

Also, you didn’t think I’d really offer you the actual reason behind Rob leaving, did you?

Catch Up:  Chapter 1  Chapter 2  Chapter 3   Chapter 4   Chapter 5  Chapter 6  Chapter 7 Chapter 8  Chapter 9  Chapter 10  Chapter 11

Rob’s POV Sunday

He had been an idiot. He knew that. He also knew that it was out of line for him to check up on her this morning, following what had apparently been a rough night for her. All he could think about today was how he had made her cry… again. He thought that by letting her know that he still cared for her, things would be easier between them, maybe this breakup would be easier on him too. Unfortunately, it hadn’t gone that way.

Seeing her kissing Adam, that had been a whole new experience. Sure, he had been hurting as well; but seeing that, it devastated him. When that kiss had apparently turned badly, he couldn’t help himself but to try to make a move to go to her. It came naturally to him. Seeing her crying and yelling at him like that, he only thought the worst. He only thought about how he could get her out of the situation. Matt however, wouldn’t allow it. Rob had become increasingly irritated as he watched the scene unfold; close enough to see that she wasn’t okay, but too far to be able to hear what was actually happening. Regardless of how concerned he had been for her well-being, Matt told him to back off. He held him back, probably just as irritated with Rob as Y/N was.

It had been his own mistake to seek her out today but he really thought that by the way she had watched him as Adam pulled her from the bar, she might have been secretly pleading with him to help her.

Every Tattoo Gun has its Thorns

Another fic for the roseph discord, for @atlasisreal‘s beaut tattoo artist Joseph and Florist Robert au. The title is the work of @tunaboy2 because I am not that witty :’)  I hope you enjoy it! And beware, there is smut about halfway through.



Robert at least felt a little bit bad, he shouldn’t have had that drink and he knew it. The second one was definitely very bad not good and he felt guilty about letting Val down. But with the third one came the tipsiness and washing away of most of the guilt. At least until morning.

It wasn’t like he was drunk he just had a healthy buzz going.

But more importantly, it wasn’t like he was drinking alone in his house in the dark, which he was pretty sure had been the most concerning part about his habit. He was out at the bar, and not the seedy old place he used to hide at, a trendy new bar closer to the flower shop. There were actual people here instead of just the odd rodent and health violation.

i’m seeing that post about how the devs on Overwatch are working crazy hours and talking about how Blizzard has lots of money and they should just “hire more developers” and like.. here’s the thing.. there’s a reason why they don’t just hire more developers. There’s a reason why shit like this is so common to the industry. 

Programming is something that doesn’t necessarily get faster by throwing more people at it. In fact it can slow it down sometimes. Recently at my game programming job my boss asked my coworker and I if we thought the project we were working on could benefit from bringing in some more people so we wouldn’t be working crazy overtime to meet the project deadline. 

And both of us thought it over, because it was our decision. And we realized that we spent a couple weeks getting familiar with the codebase and we would have to convey all that familiarity to someone entirely new and that would probably take longer than just getting all the work we needed to do done. 

Yes, projects in the game industry need to be managed and scheduled better to spare these developers but it’s not a simple fix.
