Dear Everybody,

This is just to let everyone know everything that's going on.

1) I quit the realtime reporting/steno program! There is a long story behind this, but just know, it's the right decision and I'm okay with it. Anyone want to buy a steno machine?

2) I'm ENGAGED?! Haha yes I am. Weird, right? I've got the guy picked out and everything.

3) I'm going to Mexico! I'll be back next Friday night.


So point me to your important updates here cause I won't be scrolling back through 1000+pages of friends entries. Or whatever however much you guys all update....



Love,
Rachel

Another take that amused me:



Q. Trooper, was the defendant obviously drunk when you arrested her?
DEFENSE COUNSEL: Objection your honor it calls for a conclusion.
THE COURT: Sustained.
Q. Trooper, when you stopped the defendant were your red and blue lights flashing?
A. Yes, ma'am.
Q. Did the defendant say anything when she got out of her car?
A. Yes, ma'am.
Q. What did she say?
A. "What disco am I at?"

One of the steno takes that I've been working on -- hilarious!



Q. What happened to your right eye?
A. Oh, got shot.
Q. What was that all about?
A. It was with my ex-wife.
Q. She shot you in the face?
A. Right.
Q. I assume you got a divorce from her after that?
A. No.
Q. How long did you stay married?
A. About six months we hadn't been married when this happened.
Q. Oh you weren't married? She shot you and you got married afterwards?
A. Yes.

Today I took my first speed test at 60 words per minute. If you haven't been paying attention, yes I can type faster than that on a normal keyboard, (between 70-80) but I'm learning a whole new keyboard! Which will be much faster in the end.

So I got 84.6% accuracy on the test. Unfortunately you have to get 95% accuracy to PASS a speed test. I missed 46 words during the dictation, which I felt pretty bad about. Oddly enough, when our teacher figured it up and told me the percentage, I felt a lot better. Like, "Hey, in NORMAL circumstances, I still got a B!"

Anyway, there are two days left of class this semester, then I have a two week break. (During which I swear I will totally study....haha.)

I am pretty excited about that break, though, especially with the weather heading swiftly toward 80 degrees today. This is about where I'm at:

I just tried to write "You've never been in my home," and instead wrote "You've never been in my mom."

Once upon a time there was an elephant and her name was /KHO*Rly. She lived with her mother and father at a little house at the edge of the clearing in the big woods. One day she decided that it was time to pick a career: The future was coming right up and she knew that it would be here before she was ready if she wasn't careful. So she went to her teachers and Said, "look, I really think it is time to start talking about career paths." Her teacher Said, "chorely, you are still in second grade! Do you not want to enjoy your childhood a little bit longer? It will be over soon enough." "That is exactly my point!" Chorely cried. Well, her teacher told her to go play and that was the end of that. But chorely did not give up. She knew the future was coming and she would be ready for it.

For anyone who wanted some clarification about this:

duh



There I'm sure it all makes perfect sense now.
