For as long as I have been blogging . . .
(And even before that.)
one of my annual goals has been . . .
Become Proficient With Photoshop.
I had the software (the full-blown version, mind you) loaded on my computer.
(I even upgraded once or twice.)
I took classes in using Photoshop.
I'd learn how to use it. I'd create all kinds of great effects. Basically, I'd edit the crap out of my photos.
For my assignments.
But I just never used it on my own. It seemed like . . . just so much trouble.
So my new-found skills would get rusty. (Again.)
And then I'd feel bad. (Again.)
And, each January, declare that this . . . THIS would be . . . The Year I'd Become Proficient in Photoshop. (Again.)
It has become achingly, painfully clear, though . . . that it just ain't gonna happen.
You know what I did?
I Kon-Mari'd it!
Yep. I uninstalled that sucker. Because No Joy.
And I feel SO MUCH BETTER!
