Wow, you guys!
The awesome comments on the blog yesterday made me feel really encouraged... thanks!
My work week varies from the standard 40 hours to 60+, depending on the week. I'm often found lugging my new MacBook Pro home (yay for fantastic work computers!), and there's some great (and not so great) aspects of this job... but one super-secret-fantastic perk? I have a full Adobe Cloud Creative license. Yup. Monthly subscription, paid in full.
I'm going to spend some time over the next few months taking Lynda.com lessons, learning photoshop and lightroom... hopefully improving my photo processing.
