From slacker to student

Big changes are afoot.

I haven't been to school/college in over 23 years, but that's all about to change. I am starting the digital video program at one of our local colleges this Wednesday.

The past few years I have been editing family & friends home movies and turning them into DVD's, but I always found the software I use to be very limiting. I have pondered taking it upon myself to learn Adobe Premiere, but I don't think I have the self-discipline to do so. Additionally, I always knew that if I really wanted to be an editor, I'd have to learn how to use a Mac.

I'll be purchasing my first Mac next weekend. Extra bonus - Apple is a blue company.

I'm also hoping that school will fulfill some wanderlust (wonderlust?) for something new. Sometimes you need to shake things up -- right?

Time will tell how school will affect my blogging time. But, hey, wouldn't it be cool if the Dems fix so much of what is wrong with the world that we all could take a little break? (yeah, right)

Oh noooooooo, you choose a Mac.
God our G4 has probably been sitting idle for the better part of a year.
I need a PC with grunt, and loads of RAM and heaps of sockets I'll never use, and a 512 graphics card that has a massive fan on it grrrrrrr.

Anyway I should get back either midway though January or early Feb, I hope!!!

Best of luck with your endeavors!

Perhaps you can teach me a thing or two when you finish your least what software to use

For now I'll continue to fake it but I should consider going back to school as well

Oh, Damien, don't be a hater. I'm sure they aren't that bad.
Let me know when you get back from your mysterious travels.

Thanks, Polishifter. I'd love to teach you a thing or 2, but first I have to learn a thing or 2. We'll keep in touch.

Apple is a good company. Just dropped by to wish you a Hapy New Year, Lizzy. Sorry I don't keep up as well as I should, but I've been tired lately. But here's wishing you a great 2007. Returning to school sounds wonderful!

Thanks, Sheryl. I hope you have a great 2007, as well.
