NEVER TOO OLD TO LEARN
I am still pinching myself to see whether I can figure out why I have let myself into the 'studying' thing again. Especially, as I still have nightmares about by Matric Exam i.e. writing a history exam, whilst never having a class for it. By the way I did not even have History as a subject in matric.
I have enrolled with Intec College for the Adobe Photoshop CS3 course and as you can see there are quite a bit of study material to get through. Each manual includes a CD with all the tuts on as well. As yet, I have not even had the courage to load the software onto my laptop. Planning though to do it sometime this week. At least that will be a start.
In case you have wondered, no I am not considering digital scrapbooking. For me the greatest enjoyment of scrapbooking is being able to feel and touch all the products one use while scrapping. There is also something quite satisfying being able to touch and crop photographs with one's bare hands.
So now you are probably asking the question, why then is she doing this course? Here's the answer ... I have been working and using computers full time for more than 25 years to date and have also been interested in mastering new software and especially those software programs which allows one a bit of creativity. And I think that Adobe Photoshop CS3 will perhaps also have an influence on how I am going to blog in the future ... Doing Life's web photos may be getting a new look. I have also been interested in graphic design and use to design all the marketing stationery for a firm Plantech Consulting Engineers in Pretoria, where I was employed for 8 years.
Fortunately there are no deadlines for the tutorials in this course ... one are allowed to follow your own personal pace ... much like the BOM Challenge I am participating in at the moment ... please take note Tracy when you are setting those deadlines.
So let's see whether I can complete this course before old age sets in and dragging a mouse around becomes serious hard work and effort.
