Congrats, I hope you'll have a wonderful experience!

 

As for my post, Gillian Anderson, who played Scully in The X-Files is also one of those people who very rarely go to conventions, and I was very lucky that she was at one at a time when I was planning to go the the UK anyway.

 

(I am kinda sad, though, that my budget was rather thinly spread, because over the months after I booked the trip, the organisers announced many more guests I wanted to see, but alas. Maybe some other time in this life.)

She's going to be at the convention I'm going to as well! I don't know if I'll get to meet her but it'd be awesome if I could. Conventions are the one place you have the potential for running into actors at random.

 

On that note, I've run into Christopher Lloyd, Sean Astin, Jason Momoa (also from Stargate), and a few other actors at this convention before.

I am proud of being exceptionally bad at everything I do.

 

At least it gives me something to be proud of.

I've been to Clint Eastwood's house and met his wife.

 

I was able to get all the classes I wanted this semester without being put on any wait-lists!

 

Two weeks ago my dad took me drag-racing, and I drove for three of the five races!

I'm friends with Missy Franklin. You know, the one who won four Olympic gold medals and a bronze. She has a dragon I drew for her hanging up in her room, and I sometimes sneak up on and glomp her and she laughs.

Typing speed. Pecking is a actually a lot faster than real typing for me. And it works, so there's no reason to change it.

This. I never learned to type normally, but I can touch-hunt and peck very quickly

A fast, competent typist who knows how to actually type will almost always be faster than a typist who is very skilled with the hunt-and-peck method.

I realize this. I wouldn't win any typing speed competitions, but it doesn't take me three hours to type up one paragraph, either. My speed is more or less average; that's what I'm proud of. I should have worded my above post better, sorry.

Not all the time. I type about 90wpm with the hunt and peck method, where someone who used a typewriter is about 40wpm or less. That's what I'm proud of.

I don't know if you can really compare a keyboard to a typewriter in terms of speed. They're designed differently, spaced differently, and the keys have more or less resistance depending.

Ooh, ooh! I didn't even mention my favorite part of my life. My mock trial team has been undefeated at district for the past 2 years, and we've placed 4th at state twice. I've also been on the "A" team and leadership team for the past year.

 

I've also been told I dress well. And smell nice.

Yesterday, in spite of being very depressed and feeling physically rotten, I managed to get four comic book pages painted.

 

Which might not sound like much, but believe me -- it is. smile.gif
