I've recently joined this forum not knowing exactly what it's all about. After about 12 hours of reading through some threads and PDF's, I've painted a mental picture. Unfortunately I'm still at the ground level and would like to know where to begin. Let me let you in on a little story. Over the last few weeks I've been depressed. What it was that was causing it? I had no clue. Not only that, my girlfriend was starting to get worried. Yesterday morning I came to the conclusion that I feel like I'm just turning my wheels (waking up, go to work, sleep, repeat). Hours after that I realized something. That was the fact that I felt deep down inside that I had a burning passion to be apart of something. Sure I repair computers for one of the largest company in the world but working there just makes me feel smaller. Especially if I'm barely making ends meat. I came across this site last night, well, rather really early this morning. I was on another forum that I've been with for over 7 years. While browsing that forum I clicked a series of links and ended up here laughing my butt off at on of the Photoshop threads. Little did I know what I stumbled upon. I woke up this afternoon and logged back on and for some reason I could not find out how exactly I ended up here, I could not replicate the same series of links to get here. Was it fate? Who knows. Point is, I'm here now. I'm driven, and focused on a goal. That goal is not to specifically make money, but to unleash myself and see what exactly I'm capable of. If there is anyone out there that can honestly read all of this and understand me, please post. I would like to hear some feedback and hopefully get the ball rolling. Through each other, we can succeed.
