No. 5 is alive (does anyone remember what movie this is from?)

OK, I got through lesson 4 somewhat easier than lesson 3. Of course I made some mistakes but after going over it so many times, the support department told me to move on and so I am. Today is my 3 week anniversary (and they said it wouldn't last!!) into this journey and I still can't believe that I am able to read and write sentences, short as they may be.

First Steps

As they say, all journeys begin with the first step. I took my first steps one week and one day ago, Wed., April 30, 2008. That's the day I started training with the Court Reporting At Home Program. My ultimate goal is to do broadcast captioning, but I must first learn steno and become very proficient in order to transition into captioning.
