Wow, it is coming up on 10 months! Crazy how times goes so fast. Well, as many know, i just started speed building. Which is a big milestone. I thank you all for finding my blog and always leaving kind comments and encouraging words! I am amazed that 23,000 people have found my blog. You all inspire me to not quit and keep moving forward. Thank you! So if I could go back to the Jayne on May 1st, 2014, what would i tell her? Umm, first of all, I would warn her that she will gain 5 lbs in December:) J/K. I would tell her that time management is no joke. When i stick to a practice schedule, i always make a lot of progress. I would tell her how truly great the support dept. really is. You saw it all over their website, but now i can truly say that they were not kidding. They could be considered mentors. Very encouraging people. I knew in May that i would hit hard patches, but some of the hard patches were soooo frustrating. I thought for sure, she was speaking 100 wpm in some of those drills. I thought i would never move on, but guess what? I did. Now I listen to that "hard" drill and can write it with ease. You hear it all the time, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. I even got annoyed by it "duh, you have to practice to learn it" i thought there has got to be a magic practice regime that will embed this in my brain faster. Well, Jayne of the past....it really is, boring practice, after frustrating practice, after throw your machine practice. That is it. No magic, no mystery. Now, just when you think "Man, she hates this school..." I can say with 100% certainty, I LOVE IT. As i moved through theory, the more i found how much i enjoy writing on this machine. It is a great sense of accomplishment. Yes, there were frustrating moments, and there are many on the road forward. But i really do love it. I know a few months ago i wrote that nothing is perfect. No matter what path you choose, beauty school, court reporting, nursing school, ANY school will be frustrating at times. I am still 100% happy with my decision to go with Court Reporting and Captioning at Home. No regrets at 10 months in! If you stumbled on my blog and are not enrolled, but are still gathering info...call them, don't take my word for it. I called three times before committed to the program. Anyways, email or comment to reach me. I need to get back to speed building. Good luck everyone!!!
