About a month ago, my sister came to me and asked for help on her English Lit Circle project. I have spent many hours helping her group work in iMovie and build the best presentation that a group of annoying Freshmen can make. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t so good with computers.
However, this is not the point. The point is that it is good to help people. This goes back to the whole “With great power comes great responsibility” quote. I know I am good at making movies and working with digital content, so why wouldn’t I lend a helping hand? The point is that if you can help someone, why not? If you know how to do something, why not tell someone else? Why not use your skills for the betterment of the people around you. Plus, you might actually learn something in the process. I have learned that no matter how fast your processor (3.06 GHz Quad Core) or how much Random Access Memory (8GB) you have, it still takes forever to render something.
And so I slave on, writing this as I wait for two different things to render, because I know that in the end, my sister will get an “A,” like she always does, and her friends will be happy.
By the way, I hate iMovie.
