    Hey guys, how are you all doing?

    I have been less “active” recently ’cause I fell for this (free) piece of software called GIMP and I am learning how to use it.

    Not that I create great things, I just make some stupid photo manipulation of my coworkers. Just for fun.

    As I did with my mobile, I set the language to English. That way is more challenging and fun.

    I find many tutorials on Youtube on how to use GIMP. There are many great people out there sharing their expertise for free.

    Again, I only look at video in English. I am learning tons of new terms related to this field.

    Something I like doing is making my cats Godzilla like. I make them huge in the middle of cities or in pictures of my town/area. it’s fun! ahaha (November 4 I turn 43!)

    The rest is as usual…the days go by, life as a single is great.. work-wise always the same stuff….

    Thank you guys and have a good week.

    Hello everyone.

    For all of those who have written “congratulation” without the s at the end.

    That is wrong! That is one of the first things I have learned.

    So, when you “congratulate” someone, remember, it always has the “s” at the end.

    Hope to have helped someone with my post.

    Thanks!
