Watching the Flash Videos

I watched five out of the nine videos today, but I can't watch anymore. It's killing my brain of boredom SLOWLY. I know the videos don't hold any entertainment purpose, but these videos are really boring. The videos are SOMEWHAT helpful, though. This process seems overly complicated if it takes 9 whole videos to explain it all. And they're all, like, 8 minutes long. My grade in this class will drop so low with this project - why couldn't we do something simpler? I don't know how to use Flash yet, and I already hate it. Perhaps even more than Photoshop. I know all I do is complain, but this class isn't too easy for me. I know anybody's response to that would be "A challenge is good for you", blah blah blah, but it's not a good thing when I'm supposed to hold an A for all my classes. I'm going to die if I don't have all A's on my second semester average grade. 
 I don't get it - why are we watching videos on how to use Flash CS3 if the version on our computers is CS4? Are they basically the same thing??? 
Animation is so not my thing. I also saw on my teacher's blog that the yearbook class is selling old yearbooks. I was wondering if they had any yearbooks from last year, because I want one. 

28 days till summer! 
1 day till my book comes out! :)

  1. I wasn't expecting you to watch all of them in one day. I probably watched them over 4 days. The programs don't change much between versions (CS3 and CS4), and these videos seemed to be fairly basic. You are welcome to find other resources to watch instead if you would like.

    I also am not a fan of Flash. Similar to Illustrator, I find it overly complex. However, this is content that is required. A few of your peers have been able to get past some of the programs difficulties and may be able to help you if you ask them.
