About Me In memory of the departed erstwhile stray cat my dad took in when I was in high school.
God bless his soul along with other cats all around the world.

Hey There. Whoever you are, have a nice day and keep rocking.
I have been touch-typing and "Typeracering" for quite a while, on and off (sometimes for over a year), since the start of the last decade. A legacy typing youtube channel I haven't updated in a few years: goo.gl/GjECz1. Typing sites including Typeracer used to be so bad with the same few quotes on repeat and lots of bots. Things have changed a lot and the sites are lit with so many features, functionalities and talented typists. These changes were only possible due to the passionate enthusiasm of a few dedicated members of the typing community who felt a change was needed. This will forever be one of my biggest takeaways from being a part (previously a more active one) of the community. All it takes for change is the will of a few good men and women.

One of the most fun (and embarrassing) experiences I have had typing related was winning a Das Keyboard 4 in the UTC for being among the replacement list of participants in the Top 25 (I didn't actually make it to the cutoffs as I underperformed the entire competition). The keyboard arrived too late for me to actually participate but nevertheless I got my first mechanical due to it! I have also used a Topre, an HP Elite V2 (current keyboard), Apple wired keyboard and of course a cheap laptop keyboard when I first started (my all-time fav) over the years.

Typing tips: Lots of advises are available online for anyone who cares to read by people faster than me --(a). So I won't go into the theory but would rather discuss on some hypotheticals. From my experience, I can say that anybody can type and achieve standard typing speeds (~100 wpm) given enough moderate and correct (refer (a)) practice no matter how old he or she starts. No try harding needed. But it will take time and might not happen overnight. Some amount of natural talent/starting young is required to be at the very top though. If you are really into the whole typing improvement thing: repetition does lead to mastery and tenacity will take you far, but there is a limit since this is not about brute force but more of developing a "skill", so not all of us will be perfect. Some people recommend non-quitting, some people recommend repeating high speed quotes. Do whatever you feel like. There's no perfect way. Some days you will feel it. Some days you won't. If you are ever stuck in a rut, I would recommend switching things up: this can be done in a variety of ways like going cold turkey for a long time, exploring a new keyboard, changing up variables like the site theme and your sitting position or simply watching a typing video of some faster typist. And most importantly, whatever speed you are on: don't fret it. As long as you are enjoying the art of typing, you are winning. That's just the nature of the game. Cheers.
