Some people are born to greatness while others have greatness thrust upon them. Neither of those describes me. I'm more of the hermit/crotchety/Pastafarian/mediocre type carbon life form. I keep living my life until I have wealth thrust upon me which will happen when I find that cached pirate’s booty that has been buried in the back forty. (Don’t ask me how, or why, pirates would bury their gold miles from the ocean and in the bush, they just did okay.)

Practicing With Speech Recognition
I received my speech to text program in the mail today this is the one
that I paid for. I have to admit it’s 100 times better than the free app I
downloaded on my iPad. So I’m sitting here trying it out and feeling very
self-conscious. It is definitely weird talking at the computer screen instead
of typing. I’m conditioned to watch the words appear on the screen while my
fingers are actually the ones doing the talking not my mouth. It’s really
difficult to think this way. It is definitely going to be one of those things that
I’m going to have to get used to.
It’s funny I thought I was pretty articulate, but this program has shown
me that I’m a lazy speaker. Another thing this has shown me is that when I
speak and I reread what is down on the page then I don’t see the mistakes. It
is definitely something that is going to take a bit to get used to.
Anyway I guess this is enough for tonight. I will work on my, speech to
text, writing skills a little bit more tomorrow morning. Good night all.
