The first day of class was a nice experience, I survived without crying. Just kidding. There are 12 court reporter newbie’s in Steno Class 1. As the new students walked out the door, we started taking bets on who will survive. We can be bad sometimes, in good fun. After the professor dictates to the class, we have to read back out loud to show we are paying attention and can actually type what we hear. It can be embarrassing if you drop a sentence here and there. Last night I was lucky and only dropped a word now and then at 100 wpm. My steno machine will be attached to my hip this semester and will follow me wherever I go. Me and my shadow.
Today is the first day I feel normal due to an allergy reaction to something according to my Dr. After six days of being sick, it only took two hours to start feeling better after I took my meds prescribed by my physician. She even gave me meds in her office so I could take them before I drove home. She is a miracle worker. Thank you Ranger and M.(my hubby) for advising me to see the Doctor. A novel idea.
