IPPs are not cheap. A lot of time, money, thought and work goes into creating a finished professional-looking project that the creator can be proud of. After three days of IPPs, here are my observations:
Freaking out: $$$$$$$$$
Losing data: TIMETIMETIME
Not seeing friends, family, significant others: STRESSTRESS
Being finished, and looking down at a finished product that you created: priceless.
Sometimes, it's just worth it. :)
