A lot of public libraries offer free Lynda.com access with a library card. Check the library site to see if they do. Saved me money and they have a lot of adobe suite courses. Tv.adobe.com is also worth checking out but I find the search on Lynda.com is better

what do you do when you don't want to do anything? i've been going to therapy for over a year, but i can't shake this lack of passion or joy. i work in PA and the days go by fast, life moves quicker, meaning less days to feel sad and empty. seems like everything is a bore for me and i haven't found that one thing that i am remotely interested in. i've lost all passion and don't know the first step to finding one. has anyone been in this place before? how did you get out of it?

I’ve reached ACD level and just come to realize I don’t think this is for me. I’ve struggled to force feed myself media and always trying to keep up with the latest content. Have worked on mental health the last few months and most of the activities I enjoy feel removed from this. But at this point have invested so many years (30s here). I still would like to pursue my own creative endeavors, but take a step back from that being a job. Has anyone else crossed this point? What did you do?
