This morning I had a break through and everything I’d been trying to absorb re editing videos finally starting making sense! ( The only thing I did do was accidentally delete my audio off the test video I was editing and now I can’t seem to get it back..)
This week I made the decision to stay away from everything computer related ( With the exception of social media) and not bother with working on anything because I felt I needed a break. I was so mentally exhausted from trying to learn everything all at once – that nothing was sinking in any more. So, I took a step back. So glad i did. Everything seems so much easier now 😀
Don’t get me wrong – still have a lot to learn but I’m not so stressed about things now.
What else has been happening?
Work has been insanely busy and it’s just going to get worse as we get closer to Christmas. We’ve hired more people, sure, but training them takes time and sadly, they’re not getting trained up fast enough to keep up with demand. There are lots of things I could say here but ….. It’s probably best that I don’t.
Tomorrow I am going to visit my Dad. Looking forward to that.
Have a good weekend everyone,
This weekend sees me tinkering with everything and ….forgetting how it all works. Which is frustrating to say the least.
I really want to start on this project – ( Sooner rather than later) but I’m having difficulty in trying to remember things – especially with both IMovie and Final Cut Pro. My trial run of Final Cut runs out in 16 days and I am no where near as ..” advanced” ( and by advanced I mean understanding the basics on how it works – and yes, I have watched the tutorial more than once.) as I want to be. There are times I wonder if I should really be doing this as I do find it all a little overwhelming. I hate not knowing how to do something – especially when i see everyone else being able to do it and making it look simple.
That being said, the little victories I do have with this – are worth it. So, you know, it’s not all bad.
In other news, life goes on as normal. No complaints there.
Enjoy your Sunday regardless of what you do
This weekend has been spent tinkering with internet related things. ( Let’s be honest- that’s what I’ve been doing nearly every weekend for two months) and I just want to go on record to say that …. It seems things are finally starting to get somewhere. I’ve been mostly mucking around with my social media accounts and finding ways to link them all together. I’d like to think that I’ve been pretty successful at it.
Still got a lot of work as far as creating content is concerned. I’ve down loaded a few free trials of editing programs and such and I’ve been playing with them all in one way or the other – finding out how they work ( after watching the related You Tube tutorial about what it is I’ve downloaded)
I’ll have a clearer understanding of what it is I’m using in a couple of weeks when the trials run out – I’ll know what works and what doesn’t. What to buy ( If I need to) and what to delete and dismiss completely.
As for ideas? God, I haven’t even got that far yet. Granted, I’ve had a few thoughts and wrote them down – but nothing in concrete for the moment.
It’s hard work – but I’m loving doing it ( To the point Hubby tells me to stop and do something else.. just in case my brain explodes! HA!) I haven’t felt this excited about something in a long time. And, I get the feeling, the level of satisfaction I’ll get from doing this – will far outweigh any that I am supposed to get from the job I currently do for money.
But, that’s the way it goes.
It’s 5:41am in the morning.
It’s raining outside.
This is my new blog ( and I own the domain – so I can’t change my mind this time)
I’m in the process of updating things, creating new things and deleting the old things.
Thank you for your patience
