Dee Blue waves

(no subject)

I don't want to go to work today, but of course I must, and everything will be fine when I get there. I know I'll enjoy myself this afternoon, and then as long as a steady stream of co-workers doesn't stop by to chat with me, I might even get the website update for my department done.

What I REALLY want to do is search the internet for good-quality FAKE stories and just immerse myself in that world for awhile. Then I want to spend a couple of hours working on my own FAKE story. Oh well, it's not going to happen, so I might as well bite the bullet and get going with my workday. Sigh.

I feel frustrated because I'm so technologically inept! I want to do things online and off that I don't know how to do. When I try to learn, I don't understand the terminology. I'm embarrassed to ask for help because I don't understand the explanations that people give me. I don't want to burn out the patience of the people who have been kind enough to help me. This reminds me of that time in Germany when I consulted my dictionary/guidebook and learned how to say, "Wo ist eine toilette?" and then stood there helplessly, not understanding a thing, while a very helpful girl gave me a detailed set of directions.

I know it's a step-by-step thing and a year from now, I'll look back and marvel at the depths of my ignorance. I'll mentally congratulate myself for having learned so much and come so far! I will vividly remember the frustration I'm feeling now. I will read this journal entry!

My goal for February ( since it's really not going to happen in what's left of January ) is to learn how to upload, if that's the right word, a picture onto my LJ page and to use a picture for any other online discussion I want to take part in
