Typing Speed

Yeah, that whole "30 Day" thing was a disaster waiting to happen. I have commitment issues, I can't even live in the same place for 6 months, how was I ever going to blog for 30 days?

So let's talk about typing speed now. Because I'm a little ADD.

I just typed 104 wpm on one of facebooks apps. That is 99% faster than everyone else according to the app. It's not exact, so I kind of wish instead of saying "99%" that they'd say "You're the fastest typer in the whole dam world." Because it's totally true.

You want to know how I did it? I practice. Whenever I'm bored (and because I'm ADD I'm bored like all the time) I type. I used to bite my fingernails, but now that I'm pushing 30 I felt like I should stop. So now at church (where I'm bored the most) I type what everyone around me is saying or the hymns.

Rust has also caught me typing subconsciously. Like that one time we were waiting at the Seattle ferry for 8 hours...

He caught me typing on my legs and asked me what I was typing. I had to think for a moment, but realized I was typing subconsciously - "Why don't we just teleport." over and over again.

Good question subconscious. Why don't we just teleport? It would make playing volleyball every Tuesday night with my Sandpoint friends much easier.

I actually wondered if Jon was playing a joke on me. I type things over and over and over again. I will be going through my day and then realize I've been typing some phrase I heard on the news an hour earlier. I actually hate that I do it. It drives me nuts. But I've been doing it since high school. Jon thinks I'm crazy. But I'm not. I'm just practicing.

i should try typing. i write with my fingers on my legs and stuff. i do it when i don't even realize it. tyson thinks it's funny. he'll ask me what i'm writing and i usually don't eve know. i'm bored too so i'm going to go try that typing app. i'm a pretty fast typer, but my computer is lagging today so we'll see how it goes.

i subconsciously start counting things; anything i see or hear that's countable. i don't like doing this and stop, when i realize what i'm doing. maybe we're all just a little bit weird.
