so here I am - taking a break from my efforts to learn MovieMaker and PhotoShop today... yep, Today... I don't see why I shouldn't be able to master 2 new programs in one day - some may call it insanity - but for the purpose of today's "discussion" let's go with the friendlier and less psycho term Determination.
I need to learn these... I need to use them in my work... so why are they so danged HARD? I know, I know... .they're probably not hard, I'm probably just hung up on why MovieMaker isn't more like iMovie... and PhotoShop should certainly be more like what I'm used to... scissors, crayons, and my endless artsy skillz.
I had to laugh when one of the people helping me taught me the "old school" way of doing something... "old school"? shoot, Old Schools didn't HAVE computers people!!!
Don't get me wrong, I love my computer... we have a very tumultuous relationship at times and the neighbors might report a tiff or two that they've wanted to intervene on... but the passion is still alive and we'll never be parted. Ummm, wait, let's drop that metaphor right now - I'm actually typing this on my work laptop :)
Anywho - I'm apparently an old dog who can't learn new tricks... I WAS going to have this amazingly photoshopped picture of myself RIGHT HERE to show you how much I've learned... it didn't turn out so hot... as a matter of fact... the only photo I got very far on at all was an iris... which quickly turned into a blue blob... which I then deleted out of impatience and unwillingness to make a complete fool of myself...
so, I will apologize in advance to any of the children I will help with these program in the months to come... I'm sure they will be teaching ME far more than I am teaching THEM!
