Thank you for your recommendations! I bought Affinity Photo and already am really liking it. I have downloaded the trial for Affinity Designer to decide if I need it also, or if I can get by without it.

I was also the only woman. 😬 However, when I quit a few weeks later, he offered me $50K to stay. I didn't take it (I took $45K somewhere else).

My first fulltime, salaried job in tech was $35K. When I tried to ask for a raise to $50K later, my CEO refused and said people who lived in that area (in MI) doing my job (FE web dev) didn't make that much.

Catan Jr. goes pretty quick, and though a 10 y/o could totally play regular Catan, I still like Jr. because it goes much faster! Love Letter is quick and fun for all ages. Exploding Kittens, also great for any age (just not the NSFW deck).

I'm almost a week deep into my 2 weeks off between jobs, but I've been working roughly 6-8 hours per day on upcoming conference talks anyway 😬

I've been using Photoshop since 5.5 (I was a graphic designer), but these days, the monthly subscription has gotten prohibitively expensive when there are affordable alternatives that are equally powerful.

I bought Affinity Photo for Mac, and got the trial of Design on Mac. I'm trying to decide whether to buy Design for Mac, or for iPad. (I have Procreate for iPad already)

I'm looking for alternatives to Photoshop because the subscription is not a feasible expense for me. I went with peoples' suggestions for Affinity Photo, and it's great! (And actually affordable!)

The person I showed IRL said absolutely not, they totally don’t see it. So to the internet it went... 🤷🏻‍♀️

What software would you recommend for Mac for image editing + drawing + design? Paid or free. I'm a longtime Photoshop user, but is there something else the cool kids use now? I need artistic / image editing capabilities more than interface design.

We watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation the other day and I was like, ohhh they’re saying “boughs”... that makes so much more sense 🤦🏻‍♀️

In Star Wars IV, when Red Leader does his trench run and his torpedoes impact on the surface, my partner always thought he said “Negative, they pecked it on the surface”. I never let him live this down, but I’m not sure “balls of holly” gives me any ground to stand on 🤷🏻‍♀️

Okay, I have a confession. For about 99.9% of my life, I thought the lyrics to a certain Christmas song were “Deck the halls with balls of holly”. 🤦🏻‍♀️
