Sooooooo need more tutorials for photoshop…

D1rty Cuban asked me to try and make a sig for him…and as this is the first time I’m doing this at someone’s request and not because *I* had the idea, it took me ages to even come up with an idea. And it’s not really that great of an idea, or at least I’m not super happy with it. Ugh. Not to mention, every time I get one step ahead, I’ll end up two steps back, because of what I’ll have to do with the images to get it working the way I want it to…photoshop’s been being evil as well.

Had it crash on me THREE times the first day I started working on it, nearly causing me to throw my laptop across the damn room. Stupid program which I must continue to be nice to…have to make one for Catalin and Iko eventually…I just need to keep working with 6 until I can get my hands on a copy of CS. I’ll get that hopefully on monday when I go up to Waterloo to see Ivan.

Also finally got up off my ass and into rumble pit today. That 3 was depressing me. Only played for an hour though, so I only got to a 7, but not bad for an hour of playing. Keep getting promised I’ll have people to play ts with, but we either can’t get a full party (and I REFUSE to go into team games without a full party now, if I care about that rank) or we can’t all agree on doing ts. Bah. I know we’ll do it eventually Gib, but it’s so sad.

Been really trying to figure out why I can rock it in custom games (as long as the people I’m playing against aren’t crazy high in rank…) but I do shyt serious in ranked games. Or in matchmaking in general…
I know I put pressure on myself to perform well, and the fact that I don’t do well in sniping games, is getting to be a problem. I don’t like the sniper rifle. I think it’s a stupid weapon. Don’t bother flaming me with reasons why it’s an awsome gun, if you’re good at it, great, good for you. I can respect people who are awsome at it, but it also takes skill to be able to survive a fire fight, or just beating each other silly.

Anyway, i noticed if I’m expressly aware of what my ‘rank’ is within a game, i’ll tense up, and I’ll stop getting kills, or make really stupid mistakes, and then it takes a concious effort for me to calm down and relax. That’s an issue if I’m in a ranked game. And we won’t even go Into ranked clan games…I can’t even remember the last time I did a minor game, and I know for the last time I did major it was Terrible. I do Nothing for the girls, except play moving target. Seriously not helpful. Saga, don’t come chewing on my arm because I’m not saying I’m not a decent player, I’m just saying I’m seriously handicapping myself, and I’m doing my best to get rid ot if. Just slowly running out of ideas…

Anyone got any suggetions?
