Typing Test

Yesterday, my hubby asked me if I could do him a favor. I was curious what that was because he sounded so sincere that I could see in his face that I'm the only one who could help him. So I asked what it is, and was really ready to help him. Then he handed me a bundle of papers. It was a price list. A price list of tires. And boy, it was typed in number 8 Arial font, and 7 damn Excel pages. Right there and then I realized what he was asking from me. An encoding job. Wheow...

When I came to the office last Monday, finished my work, and was ready to do the "encoding thing", I first stared at it. Focused on myself that I'd do it. Tried to force myself that it is easy. After 5 minutes of contemplation, I decided. No, I will not do it. I can't. It'll take half of my day, and won't be able to surf, blog, read, play with my baby, etc....

The next day, I saw the papers again... I told myself that I'll try to type them when I have the chance... Later that afternoon, I started typing... I finished it in 1 1/2 hours, (including snacks, answering the telephone, and office chit chat). I never realized it'd be that easy. That led me to surf for a typing test and try my typing skills. I discovered that I'm not that fast. But at least, I don't look at the keyboard. My average was 77 words per minute. How about you? Try it out...
