Yes, that's me, A Generation X'er. I fall safely in that time range and have many of the stereo-typical characteristics of my generation. Case in point, yesterday. I am fairly computer-literate. I can blog, I can manage the aps on my smart-phone, I can text and even post photos on my facebook page. Now, You-Tube? Yes, I've dabbled a smidge, so I think I'm pretty typical of my generation. We can learn technology but it might take us a little longer? We are stubborn and self-reliant and we have a decent work ethic.
This Generation Xer found a screaming deal on Photoshop Premiere right before Christmas and snatched up the software. My Photoshop/Premiere 9 was dismally out-dated. (I had made a commitment to a friend to start doing a few more You-tube videos. I had been doing a couple a while back but a couple of the comments brought my self-doubt out to the forefront and I decided that I would ignore You-tube for a while. Why go there when you could spend the time stamping!)
So yesterday, I spent a good long time LOOKING for the actual software to install, then a GOOD LONG time installing the software, then a VERY LONG time relearning the software upgrades and even LONGER trying to get You-tube to upload my video. It's a good thing I had supper in the crockpot so I could manage to get the dumb thing working! I finally figured out a work-around so here's my video. Probably should just have waited until my Millennials got home from school and could have whipped that baby out in no time! But I struggled through, fairly typical of my generation. :) I did it! Hooray. Hey Mom, can you put it on your fridge?
Enjoy. I'll try polishing it up in the future. Baby steps my friends.
