    Do you? Because sometimes I get so frustrated and I feel like throwing in the towel.

    For example: spending ages on a graphic and never gettting it quite how you want it, stuff like that.

    I think everyone does at some point, myself included. But I never gave up.

    I have all the time, but I keep reassuring myself everything will pay off in the end...

    Same here...I'm told constantly that I need to do this or that instead...but I think working with the web (and even failing on my projects there) will prove to be more useful than most other things.

    Exactly. Sometimes I just get frustrated, angry, and/or depressed with certain things, but I don't give up. I'll just leave and see how I feel the next day. Think before you act.

    Sometimes when I feel this way I just take a break for a day or two and that usually cures it. Or I do something I know I can do well or even just get e-mail caught up to take my mind off the frustration.

    Whenever I sleep on something or take a couple days break I end up coming back and having no clue what exactly I was doing (like when writing a program, I'll go to bed, come back and not be sure where I left off and stuff. Maybe I should be commenting....)
