After a not all that exciting week, my long-awaited software arrived yesterday. I’ve been playing around with MacSpeech Dictate, which is working better than I expected, and I’m glad to get my hands on the full version of KeyStrokes. Transitioning to keyboard-less computer use has not been easy so far. With KeyStrokes, the on-screen keyboard, I feel like I’m moving in slow motion. And with MacSpeech Dictate, the voice recognition software, I feel like I don’t have any control. This whole thing is a work-in-progress, I guess.

I’m not feeling very motivated. In anything.

I don’t think I can take much more school. I know that I’ll eat my words later, but I’m getting burned out. I’m ready to earn moolah, and not always have homework hanging over my head. I want to get back into Web design. I want to do something that matters. My recent inability to type is not the only cause for all of these feelings, it’s just the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Anyway, sorry for the crappy post. Better luck next time.
