kimberly aka kim. 25. slacker. pessimist. fed up with everything these days. currently obsessing over too many things.
That earlier post got me interested. As I mentioned, I type non-standard, mostly with my pointer fingers. I took this test a couple times and I type ~72 words/minute, ~1 typo/minute. Which is apparently pretty decent for two fingers (although not typist fast). Suck it, proper typing.
I wanna know how the rest of y’all do! :)
50-70 is apparently average for people who type regularly in their occupation, and 30 is average for the general population. Broader context (y’all know I like graphs, right?), here’s one study’s results:
Similar results from a different study:
I’m really curious how the tumblr crowd falls out.
Also I’d be interested to know if anybody else has an unusual typing… quirk…
ok, I see what happened there. o.o
hey, neat. i took the test four times since the first time i sucked, and ended up like this:
- 65 wpm, 3 wrong
- 74 wpm, 0 wrong
- 81 wpm, 1 wrong
- 78 wpm, 1 wrong
the first time i ran through the test it fucked with me to be copying the words i saw on screen, especially with the way they jumped around. then i started reading ahead and thinking of the words more as concepts than strings of letters to find and press, and my muscle memory kicked in i guess.
Decided to do it four times as well because why not! And it was a little weird to get used to anyway
- 74 wpm, 3 wrong
- 103 wpm, 2 wrong
- 101 wpm, 1 wrong (backspaced a lot on this one)
- 101 wpm, 1 wrong
I’ve, uh, always been super fast at typing. Like, in third grade when we were learning how to type I had some of the fastest times. I think I was already up into 70 wpm by the time I was 12. Kids asked me how I did it and I just said it was natural talent.
Of course when I’m focused on typing words not from my head, I can type hella fast. But if it’s coming from my head, I’d say I’m more in the average range, sometimes even lower.
But yeah! Speedy typer here.
- 102 wpm, 1 wrong
- 97 wpm, 0 wrong
- 108 wpm, 0 wrong
- 110 wpm, 3 wrong
So I averaged 104 wpm, 1 wrong. I think I’m actually faster when I’m typing from my own head because I know exactly what it is I’m about to type. With that test, the words are a jumbled mess and I want to try and turn it into something that makes sense as I’m going. lol
I learned touch typing back in fourth grade, which means I’ve been typing for the past… 16ish years of my almost 26 years. I never have to look down at the keyboard unless it’s one I’m not used to, because then my muscle memory doesn’t always match up.
Although I won’t lie… I never bothered really learning all the symbols on the number keys. I mostly know them, but sometimes it’s like “% no, wait, I meant $”. I always use my right thumb to press the space bar, and I rarely use the right side’s alt/ctrl/shift buttons, if ever. So I’m not a 100% by the rules touch typist. Maybe a 90%. Heh.

I do! *giantest hug possible*
Can we talk about how Emma has NEVER looked at Hook this way. This is look of complete vulnerability and true emotion. She very rarely lets herself be this way except in moments of intense drama. This look is beautiful and the fact that there are tears in her eyes is significant.
And has Hook truly looked at Emma this way? I think he has come close, but there is something more to his expression. It is a look of pure and true love and a deep sadness that it may all go away.
I’m eagerly anticipating how this scene plays out, but it truly looks like they are afraid. Afraid of losing each other. Afraid of losing their memories of all of the moments that have brought them this far together. Or it could be something entirely different.
But one thing is for sure. These are the looks of True Love.

I see the clipping in the first one but what’s the second one
i actually dont see the clipping in the first one?? but the second one elsa’s braid phases right through her arm when she brings it forward. not over her shoulder. literally through her arm
First one is his thumb clipping through her side.
They can give their boobs jiggle physics but they can’t stop and entire brade from phasing through an arm
So I was at a thrift store and I see this little cat lamp.
I was like “Aye yo, no homo, but ya’ll are fuckin’ adorable.”
So I bought the lil’ guy and took him home to plug him in.
Then I was like “No.”
Now people are shipping Hook/Tink more than ever and saying that Hook is a sleazeball for hitting on her after he told Neal he was in it for the long run with Emma. They are saying he doesn't belong with Emma, he can't be trusted and will only drink and cheat on her when something goes wrong in the relationship. Upsets me to hear this. Some people are not seeing the whole picture here. Hook is obviously very love sick. What's your take? You have a way of putting things in a great perspective.
Thanks for the kind words! I think there’s a bigger issue than just talking about what happened in 3x10.
Shortly after I wrote that meta on Hook’s wrongs and how our “good guys” have done things just as bad, it occurred to me why I had to write it in the first place: because those who hate him don’t see him as a character in a story. They see him as an idea - a caricature of treachery and dishonesty, of male chauvinism, of sexual aggressiveness. The epitome of sleaziness.
They see him as this dark, menacing mass of antihero qualities wrapped up in their personal biases against the archetype. I see it too often - they don’t like Hook because he reminds them of a douchebag ex who did this and that, or because he smiles like that misogynist from that other show. His innuendos, his rum, his eyebrows, his accent, his coat, his hook, his swagger - these things form one big despicable package in their eyes, and not for what he’s actually done, but for what he represents.
This is why they confuse innuendos for rape jokes, because when he speaks they don’t hear his voice. They hear someone else’s, they feed their own meaning into his words. This is why they accuse him of violence against women, because they choose to think that he hit Belle because she was a woman, instead of the actual canon reasons why he did.
It barely matters what Hook does - he’s a bad person, they think, and bad people do bad things. The judgment comes from what they think he represents, not from what he does. They don’t bother analyzing his actions because that would inevitably bring up his reasons. They don’t want to talk about the reasons, because to do so would be to rationalize on his behalf - to permit, even enable all the negative things that they think he represents.
So they say he’d drink himself senseless when something goes wrong, because that fits into what they’ve settled in their minds that this caricature is like. It doesn’t occur to them that drinking and drunkenness are perfectly acceptable even in Storybrooke, and that he certainly couldn’t have been the only one who left Granny’s over the legal limit. They’re gonna go ahead and slap the label “alcoholic” on him, even if he actually doesn’t exhibit the common symptoms of one. They’ll slap it on as if it’s his fault, even, as if developing a “drinking problem” is a choice.
They say he’ll cheat and can’t be trusted because he hit on Tink. They don’t care that Hook is under no obligation to stay abstinent, seeing as he and Emma are not together. They choose to ignore that Neal literally bumped into Tamara, got her number, likely asked her out for drinks, and 100% guaranteed was hoping that at least their second or third date would lead to sex. If it is indeed true that he always had feelings for Emma, then he also did it to “distract” himself. The difference between that and what Hook did is that Hook was drunk, that Tink knew there was another who owned his heart, and that it would never be anything but physical to Hook.
That and, of course, that Neal “isn’t a bad person who does bad things”.
Those who hate Hook already saw what they wanted to see, heard what they wanted to hear, and its meaning is exactly what they want it to be. You can try to defend him to them, but they won’t hear it. In fact, if they read this, they’ll say that I’m just defending him because I like him, and based solely on that, disregard everything I said.
The problem with hate is that if you let it, it always finds a reason to exist. When you say they’re “not seeing the whole picture”, that’s because they choose not to.
Today has just been a spectacularly shitty day. Though I can’t help but feel like I purposely made it into one. Self-fulfilling prophecy and what not.
