In my last post I mentioned that I got a migraine headache after I ate Kraft peanut butter. I do not have an allergy to peanuts...thankfully. I like Cashews, Pistachios, Almonds and regular peanuts.
As far as my formal education goes, I graduated high school in 1973 and began working practically straight out of high school. I was one of the best in my typing class, as in my last year of high school I was typing 60 words per minute. After the IBM typewriters came out, with the ball or element, as opposed to the keys that would stick together, I was able to type even faster. Now with a computer I can type about 80-90 words per minute. I am very fast and do not look at the keys when I type. I think there is sometimes a stigma about people who for one reason or another didn't graduate high school or who, like in my case, DID graduate high school and receive a diploma. I need to point out that my father was placed in a military hospital when I was in my teens, and my mother was unable to work at the time I graduated high school due to her health issues. So there was just no money for me to go to college! But I made the best of it, like I always try to do, and I spell even better than some people who did go to college, as even though I had no formal education beyond high school, I am an avid learner and have a good attitude so I did just fine! :)
There is a quotation which I always try to live by, and which I really like! It goes something like this: never look down on anyone unless it is to pick the person up. And I think this is good to remember and implement in life. We just never know what can happen. People who have a lot of wealth with a big house and more than one car can some day lose it all! So it is good to appreciate what we have.
That is enough for this post. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. :)
