Learning a New Skill



This is embarrassing to admit but I have never mastered how to type correctly! (there I said it! Feels good to finally get that off my chest) I have been using 2-4 fingers my whole life and must have completely ignored my 7th grade typing class that I took using a huge old school typewriter. While we are at it lets also say I totally ignored math as well because I can barely help my 6th grader with her homework. My struggles are real!

I have been writing a lot lately and getting more serious about it so I decided enough was enough. I found some resources online and have been learning through a typing website. I don’t know if it is because I am older and set in my ways but it is tough. I am doing it right now and every ounce of my energy is used to not just give up and starting pecking the keys with two fingers yet again. My fingers feel like uncoordinated bear paws and my brain speeds ahead of my slow fingers and I am always typing the wrong thing.

I am getting better I really am, but it has been a lot harder than I thought it would be. Hmmm what else have I said that phrase about in my life? <cough cough> Motherhood!

All I know is as soon as I am consistently typing at least 40 words a minute I am buying myself a prize!

    I have failed as your Mother..I can type correctly because my Mom told me I might need it to fall back on..always in the back of my mind was I better learn it because I might need it. Interesting enough I am only using two fingers as I type this.
