I think being under the pump means being under pressure or some such. Anyway I find myself in that position that freelancers find themselves in from time to time where by they are in demand and every one wants them to work for them all at the same time. A good place to be but it puts a lot of demands on my time. Most notably in the production of personal projects, sleep, talking to people and the up keep of this blog. I hope to have some more substantial words of wisdom on here again when things calm down a bit.
