Savings passbook!!!  I forgot what they looked like until I saw this.  My Gramma would take me to the bank with my card and deposit money into it for me.  I loved watching it get more and more money.  Then came the day when I was 17 and wanted to be a foreign exchange student and took all the money out.  It was worth it to spend a year in Norway!!!

Yup. The dreaded typing class. As I watched some who typed 60+ wpm, I knew that I was in trouble.

I was mad when my mom and grandpa said I had to take typing class. Because I didn't want to be a secretary, I didn't think I'd need that skill when I grew up. I am SO happy that they made me take that class and that I learned how to key well.
