This is going to be a bit of a meta blog post, considering I’ll be discussing how fast I type while also typing very quickly. I’m trying to write without concentrating as much on what I’m saying, so that I can really immerse myself in the speed at which I’m typing.
One thing that’s always stood out about me is how much I know computers. I’m a tech savvy person, so whenever people at work are having issues with their Smartboards or personal computers or whatever, I’m usually the first person they call to ask for help. It’s just the nature of being someone who knows a thing or two about technology. I grew up around computers, have always been one with my laptop or gaming console, and as a result type pretty quickly. I don’t look down at the keyboard when I type, which I guess is a luxury of being so used to writing on the computer. In some ways it’s a luxury, but in other ways it’s a curse. People point it out as soon as they see me type; whenever I have to help someone write something, it always comes down to, wait you can type that fast? Are you made of magic? What’s going on with your fingers? Yeah, some of the questions end up being a bit on the weird side.
It’s also, however, totally ruined my hands. That’s one thing that sucks about all this; I don’t have the same function in my hands that I used to have. I feel like I have some form of carpal tunnel as a result of either my typing speed or the fact that I never seem to not be playing video games when I have free time. Hopefully that changes in 2020. I’m looking forward to a new year at this point.
