I design planners for people. (Think Franklin-Covey, DayPlanner, etc. Except customized to your needs, and the information you want / need to capture, and the way you actually use your planner.) As the end of September is approaching (which had to be pointed out to me, but which I eventually accepted, with minimal kicking and screaming), I fired up InDesign to work on Q4 planner pages.
One of my common designs has a “future planning” section on the last page of each month, with sections blocked out for each of the three following months. So, as I finished working on October, I had to type in January 2013 for the first time, and that’s when it actually hit me that 2012 is more gone than not. Where the hell has this year gone?
