If Only I Were Young Again

Wishing to be young again, can start at any age. When the new baby is born, the older baby wants to be a baby again. And when you're having a bad "mom" day, don't you wish you could be young again and not have kids? When your teenage daughter gets ready to go to the prom, don't you wish you could be her age again. (Oh, admit it, you'd like to go to the prom again.) Now, it's probably different for men because I don't think they ever really grow up (but that's a whole different story). Anyway, what I'm saying is, we all wish we could go back and be our young self again at some point (perhaps at many points) in our life.
This is kind of how I'm feeling today.

I went back to college in the late eighties. Personal computers were new. I took a computer graphics class and loved it. I had an Amiga (don't laugh). It had the best graphics at the time. After that I went on with my life and family. And of course computers got better and better. And pretty soon I was wishing I was in high school again and could do it all again.

Yesterday, I asked a woman in RS about cute backgrounds for blogs and she told me about thecutestblogontheblock website. I spent hours pouring over their designs and the secrets. I redid my blog about 4 times, made my own button, and a signature.

Now I don't really know that much about code-just what my son-in-law has showed me when putting up my website. Mostly I just copy and paste and experiment. But I wish I knew more.

I wish I could be young again and do it over-I would so be a graphic artist.

I use my computer a lot with my artwork but wish I knew more.

I'd like to know the code and design cute stuff to put with my drawings.

You're probably thinking why doesn't she go back to school? I've thought of that too, but I've been back once and it was hard. Not to mention expensive. I want to be young with tons of energy and time and no responsibilities and then I want to go back to school.

So I guess I'll just keep muddling through with what I can do with graphics and codes and I'll keep on admiring the young graphic artists who are changing the art world. Not to mention movies, blogs, websites, graphic novels...OMG!

My next thing to try is-making my website as cute as my blog. I know there's a way!
