But we took 3 more tests in my main teachers class after that, and I didn't get close to passing any of them. I didn't even type them up, I just had her sign the notes and then went home for the day as that was my last class. We have 4 more days left in the quarter, but today was the last day for testing, I have enough time to miss the rest of the quarter, so I'm taking an early break until April 4th when school starts again.
If I actually wrote 100wpm, wouldn't I have passed at least one of those 3 tests? It's so hard when you BARELY write at that speed, you have to get *just* the right test to pass, no tricky words to stump you.
I think in steno, it's so ridiculous. All the time I'm having conversations or watching television or a movie, and briefs for everything people say are flashing through my mind. I'm constantly thinking "can I write that like this or that?" thinking of different scenarios in my head as the person keeps on speaking. But I'm still listening to what they're saying. It's like I have an additional annoying voice in my head now. I asked my teacher if it will ever go away and she no, it's something I'm stuck with now. If it's just Mark with me and we're watching television, sometimes I'll say the word (or group of words) and then spell the brief aloud to see if it makes sense, he finds it very annoying but is used to it. I know he thinks it's dorky, but I'm on a huge learning curve here, something has to give!
