Cee’s Share Your World 2013: Week 9 ~

Cee’s questions for this week are:

How do you write: computer, longhand or other?   In today’s world, I do most of my writing by computer ~ but I prefer to write longhand and do so every chance I get.  I have been told I have wonderful handwriting.  Indeed, I began “practicing” my handwriting in 6th grade, and it does tend to be impressive.  (pats self on back!) 

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility:  If you could play any sport professionally what would it be?  Or if you can’t picture yourself playing sports, what is your favorite sport?  Any sport related to horseback riding.  I used to ride when I was in school, and owned horses.  They are an amazing animal, and I bonded with mine as many do with dogs and cats.  I think I’d like to ride in the Olympics, or any type of show jumping.

If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?   Quilting is my current love.  Not only does it allow me to release my creativity in endless ways, but also to make others happy with my creations.  What could be better than that?

What subject was your favorite in all of your schooling? Why?  Well, my entire high school years were devoted to “business”, as I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I graduated.  All of the many classes I took in relation to my degree are my favorites ~ I cannot pick just one, as they encompassed each other.  Typing and Shorthand were my absolute favorites.  I also had courses like Accounting, Business Math, Economics, Office Procedures and others.  One other “honorable mention” I want to put out there, because I’ve seen a couple other bloggers mention it, is that I loved English ~ because I am a grammar, spelling, punctuation obesessive/compulsive.

P.S ~ After almost 35 years of being out of school, I can still take Shorthand at about 120 wpm, and type around 130 wpm.  I do have occasion to use my Shorthand, and I type verbatim business meetings on a regular basis and then transcribe them.  Now THAT’s fast!


Thanks Cee!

  1. Wow, that is fast! I thought I was a pretty good medical transcriptionist but I don’t think I got anywhere near to 130 wpm.

    It’s cool you haven’t outgrown your love for horses. I loved them as a kid but now they make me nervous. I prefer my animals to be smaller than me!

    • I’m not saying I can HANDLE horses anymore, but… once upon a time ~ they were my life.
      I’m only guessing at the typing speed… it has to be near 130 as I type full conversations of about 25 different people in a meeting, word for word. I don’t miss much, and I do it on a laptop. Thanks for the look-see.

  2. Our high school courses were identical. Except that I hated shorthand. I always typed faster than I could write shorthand. LOL I so enjoy it when you share. Thanks for being a ardent follower.

    • I really like your challenges, Cee. I’m learning alot… about people, about photos, about photography ~ what looks good and what doesn’t. I never would’ve thought I’d like black and white until a couple weeks ago! Thanks for making me utterly dependent! 🙂
