When I was in high school and you were taking college prep courses, typing class was mandatory. I sucked so bad at typing that the teacher just passed me to get rid of me.

Was this typing done on a keyboard or a typewriter?

Computers weren't invented yet. First semester typing was taught on a manual typewriter, second semester it was on electric typewriter.
Yeah, I'm THAT old!!!!

Same here. I could never get past 35 words a minute.
Ancient_Hippy Ancient_Hippy
35 WPM sounds pretty good to me.
I have really big hands and I just couldn't control them on the little typewriter.
dru tiger Ancient_Hippy
I can see where that might be a problem.
My hands are pretty small, but my brain just couldn't keep up. LOL! One of my sisters can type 90 words a minute with no mistakes.

Whoa, that's quick.
dru tiger Ancient_Hippy
Yeah, and she had these really long nails, which you would think would get in her way. I don't get it. LOL!

Math as well. I'm not bad at it exactly, but I have to work harder at it than any other subject. I prefer history and English and Latin.
BenjiC01 HeyCameron!
Yeah, I know what you mean.

Math. I think it is boring and it doesn't like me too much either.
BenjiC01 dru tiger
Math seems to be a common one. I never was good at it and it frustrated me.

I took College Algebra last year, and I was totally out of my element.  I passed but only because a lot of people helped me.

I hated typing class as well. The typing was done with an Underwood typewriter. Yes I'm from the 60s and I'm old. As long as I could remember, I'm one of the slowest typist in class
