You Know you Spend Half of Your Life Using Photoshop When...


I have been having nightmares a lot lately.  And I would consider last nights dream a nightmare, but kind of a funny one.  People who use Photoshop often will probably appreciate this :)  Here is what happened:

All I could see was a huuuuge computer screen with Photoshop open like it was the only thing within my vision.  In the Layers section, my life was fragmented into different layers like "emotions" "friends" "goals" "jobs" etc.  There were nice little snapshots of each of element next to it's title.  And all I could think was, "AHHH my life is out of order!  My life is out of order!  I can't rearrange the layers!  Everything is scattered!  I'm overwhelmed!"

Kinda creepy when Photoshop becomes a metaphor for life.  I think it is a sign that I have been spending too many hours everyday using Photoshop haha.  Oof!  I had to work on a huge custom jewelry order today, working away with the saw and belt sander and all that woodworking jazz.  It was a good break away from my computer.  But here I am... back at the computer.  I can't neglect my photoshop based work!  ...dun dun, dun dun...

Oh,this always happens if you're doing something A LOT.
I remember, when I was in College and working for the Postal Service during the summer break, I would always "sort mail in the little shelf" all night.. hahaha.
