children of dune - leto 1

life at work

The thing is, I am a simple girl with simple needs. No, really. At work, I just want something interesting and challenging.

Yeah, I'm an idiot.

On the list of "interesting and challenging" projects currently:

1.) create a webpage version of the user manual I wrote for our tracking program.
I have to learn DIV commands, since the table thing is driving me nuts in layout. And because frankly, I kind of want to show off. To whom, I have no idea--no one else in this office is familiar with how to code a webpage. I think writing HTML on a page is enough to impress them.

Like I said, I'm an idiot.

2.) this part is unreal. I got called into a meeting to--no, really--create a music vid about my supervisor's supervisor, to commemorate her receiving her doctorate.
Tell me Adobe Elements will work for this. Please. Also: why does knowing how to build a basic webpage predispose people to think I can create a vid?

God. Why can't VVC be *before* this? Then I could stand outside and offer money to vidders or cry on sisabet or fan_eunice or something and hope they will pity me.

OTOH, I have an excuse to websurf during work to refresh my memory of CSS. So you know, not too bad. Except for the vid part. I may go catatonic over that.
