Learning Dvorak – Day 12

A little Dvorak review today. I’m glad I decided to review, because I got to see some higher wpm scores for a change. They went down quickly as I progressed through the lessons though. I started out at 45 wpm on the first lesson and ended up at under 20 by the fifth home row lesson… and getting slower each time I took the test until I reached 15 wpm and decided to call it a day.

I’m going to try to pick up where I left off tomorrow. I think that after a certain amount of time, I might just be getting to tired to concentrate enough to keep from hitting the qwerty keys. My mind starts drifting off in the middle of a test.

And my cat wasn’t helping either.

I’m pretty sure “correct typing posture” does not include a cat draped over your forearms or trying to roll onto the keyboard.

Some days are just like that.
