Part of learning is learning to realize what you can and can't do in the given time frame. In the real world you might have to compromise certain aspects of a design in order to meet a deadline. Learn from it and don't bitch. No one cares in the real world what kind of bitching idea you had if can't deliver it on time. So either learn what you can and can't do in a certain time frame, spend more time on it, or get better so you can actually do what you intend in that time frame.
You were the one that chose that path, own up to your own choices. Should've scribbled a maze.
I'm sure I don't type with the right fingers either, I thought I used all of them but it seems I do the same thing for the most part. And I look at the keyboard. and last time I checked, only 16 words per minute. I think I should have improved by then, since that was years ago that I had that score
I end up doing a lot of erasing and stuff when I'm typing. Not to mention half the time I'm not sure how I want to word something or entirely what I want to say. So if I write a long comment, I could easily take 5 minutes detailing something.
I've had typing lessons in my "Computer Applications" class but I did not learn much from them. They enforced the stupid "Home Row" method.
Funny thing: I've been a single-key-finger-picker (rebel against the system maaaaan!!!) since I first got my hands on a keyboard, and nowadays I can type about 75-80 WPM on average with 90% accuracy without looking at the screen.
That's probably what's gonna end up happening to me. I only get to take two *actual* animation courses and it's my emphasis. One I think focuses on hand-drawn animation (but done in ToonBoom or Flash) and the other is 3D modeled animation.
and I've never, ever had typing lessons, except for maybe two or three typing 'games' I did in primary school and I had finished my computer work early, so instead of doing nothing, the teacher gave us them to do.]
The only thing that I do wrong is that I don't use my left pinkie, because I don't have as much movement/muscle control in it, because I've smashed that wrist so many times.
Oh, I find that more annoying. I usually look at the screen. I'm looking at the keys now, and it actually slows me down, because it makes me have to think about what I am doing, I usually use 'muscle memory', to type, and looking at the keys stops me from doing that.
