    I get $1500 each year for any 'work related' training.

    I have to spend it by July 1.

    I am having ankle surgery next week, so I figured i'd go nuts with the online training and see what I can take advantage of...

    So far i've done the following:

    Signed up for NAPP (national association of photoshop professionals)
    Signed up for unlimited access to the Kelby Training site.
    Signed up for Lynda.com unlimited access
    Made my appointment for my Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop test :noes:


    What am I missing? I can't find ways to spend this fucking money...

    come now. You think I haven't thought of that...

    It has to be 'training materials'.

    No software, no hardware.

    Hmmm..

    The only problem I see with that is the ankle surgery + 2 stick shift cars...

    Might be a while til i'm driving again...

    so books or educational dvds wouldn't count?

    well I didn't mean necessarily $1500 all in photography books..

    I could spend $1500 in just an hour or two at Borders.. programming books are expensive :o
