Yesterday I finally decided to commit. It was a long and well-thought out process, one ridden with ums and ahs. I have been toying with the idea for a while, not sure if the long term commitment was worth it or not. So under the pressures of the financial year ending I decided to bite the bullet, be a man and so I finally did it. I whipped out my credit card, filled in the details and purchased it…a lynda.com membership.
Oh how great that feeling was when I entered the site for the first time and saw everything it had to offer. I must have spent over 8 hours in the Cinema 4D section alone. It was one of the greatest gifts I have given myself. I felt like a scholar discovering the lost library of Atlantis. I swear I even heard the holy music and saw cherubs holding harps continuously singing “HAAA” as I entered my login name and password.
For those of you who do not know what Lynda.com is, here is a blurb from the company:
lynda.com helps anyone learn software, creative, and business skills to achieve personal and professional goals. Members receive unlimited access to a vast library of high quality, current, and engaging video tutorials taught by great teachers who are also working professionals.
My wife used to tell me that my Macbook is my mistress, well if that’s the case I now have a new mistress and her name is Lynda.
