Hi, Michael. Thank you for your comment on my page. My turnaround time is 5-6 business days. If you'll contact me privately at email@example.com, we can discuss further the possibility of working together. Hope you had a great Christmas.
thank you for the letter and the kind words. I'm honored to be an example to your mentees, but I don't know exactly what that entails. All of my success is entitled to Kislingbury, my Mom, and my instructors at Cypress.
In regards to me being mentioned in your comment to Stephanie, I always try my best, but I never go into a testing situation with the expectation of getting 100%. You might see that as a weakness, but part of trying my best involves no extra burdens. I'm sure Olympians wish to win the race or maybe break a personal record, but I'm sure they don't go in hoping to shatter world records. Such thoughts, I think, are deviations from doing one's best. My best on the CSR was five errors, but I didn't go in hoping for any specific number under 50. That's what I told you when I met you briefly at CCRA, I wish to pass. I surpassed my expectations, and my score reflects my best ability, but it's a reflection after the fact, never an expectation.
I'm not being negative at all. I just asked if Jessica had any advice for me that she would like to share, and she did. No matter what is going on in my life, I surround myself with positive people, activities, etc. to get me through each and every day. I know that positive thinking and visualization will get me everywhere and everything that I want out of life. Thanks to you and others, I've been able to make some changes in the way that I study and write steno so that I can keep moving forward. I've listened and applied all of the wonderful advice that I've gotten. As a matter of fact, without this forum and others like it, I wouldn't have gotten as much advice and knowledge that I have so far, because in school, it's just so competitive. Trust me, Michael, I'm keeping my eyes on the prize. I do have a newborn baby due on February 26th, and of course all of my other children are looking at mommy for all kinds of support, so I have to stay strong. I do not have any other options right now. My husband is now in Afghanistan working, but he'll be here for the delivery. He has a year contract and will come home every four months. So you see, I have to be stronger than ever now. Your prayers will be greatly appreciated. I am moving along in my speed and gaining more and more confidence. I'm at 160 Q&A and Lit., and I'm at 180 J.C. I'm over the hump and staying on target. Now I need to just finish. Whew! Please keep in touch with me. My 21 month old (terrible two) just got home, so I've gotta run. Talk to you soon, Nikki
Well hello there, stranger. How are you? What have you been up to? I miss talkin' to you. You've been so helpful in giving me advice and motivation, and I just wanted to give thanks to you for that. Thank you very much, and hopefully I'll talk to you again soon. Bye for now, Nikki.
Wow, Thanks Michael, I enjoined reading that.
I am glad you see us in this positive way, this site is intended to bring all together from coast to coast and I am glad you see it the same way.
I also want to thank you again for inviting all these wonderful members when you joined almost a year ago..
Thank so much.
I got your message, and while I appreciate your bountiful confidence in my writing, I don't dare aim so high. I'd be happy just to get to the test and actually pass. But I see your point. It's certainly a nice idea to wonder how well you'll do on the CSR rather than whether or not you'll pass. I'll try to get to that point.
Sorry I haven't been in touch lately. Moving and unpacking has taken longer than usual, and I'm just trying to get back to work now.
Anyway, I hope you're doing well. I look forward to hearing from you again.
Hi Michael! It was so nice to hear your messages. I have been either at school, or working until 11:00 p.m. That is why I did not get to get back to you, I'm sorry. I have to work as many hours as I can get because my bank account is almost $0, and my paychecks are not enough to pay my bills. It is getting pretty stressful! As far as school, I have not been able to get my hands on 240 practice material yet, but I am working on as fast of material as I can get. I thought we had 240 and 260 video at school but we don't. Then, I had to get new fingerpads for my keys, and yesterday was the first day I used the machine with them on there. I felt like I was a brand new writer! Today was the first qualifier of the week, and I am still getting used to the fingerpads. It was not a great one for me, but it could have been worse. At this point I am just proud of myself for getting to school after working so many hours. The qualifiers on Tuesdays are not usually as good for me as the ones on Thursday, because the ones on Thursday are at !0:00 as opposed to 8:30 this morning. haha. At least I forced myself to type up the whole test today! I do think that I am getting more clear areas, and that as soon as I get used to those pads, I will be making more progress. If you think about it, please send a prayer my way for my accuracy and enough money to pay my bills. I don't have many bills, but they still want to be paid. Thank you so very, very much for calling me and keeping track of me. I am finding it is going to keep me moving in the right direction, and keep me motiviated.
So sorry. I am in Wisconsin, Milwaukee, to be exact. And as far as that project you helped me with, I got an A!! So, it was good. I haven't had much time to come on here I have been working so hard on my speeds. lol I am finally moving on up. I wasn't sure it was going to happen for a while. But, I am back on track now so I will be sure to keep in touch more. Thanks!
Hey Michael! Remember me? Probably not but that is ok. I was just wondering if you had any pointers for me. I just passed my 100wpm mark and I am trying to get into the field but I have NO idea where to start looking. Any help would be appreciated.
