The stories this week are written by students with the Halifax Community Learning Network (www.hcln.ca). HCLN is part of the Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning and offers programs at the Captain William Spry, Halifax North, Keshen Goodman, and Spring Garden Road branches of the Halifax Public Libraries.
In September I had the opportunity to learn how to use the computer. I never had any interest to use the computer until this summer when all my friends said that I should try it. So in September, Sandra said that she would help me learn.
She showed me how to turn the computer on and I have been learning something every week. I went on a web site to learn how to use the mouse and how to find the letters on the keyboard.
I found it very hard to remember where the letters were and very hard to get the mouse where I wanted it to go. So I practice every day and it is getting easier.
Now I can send Emails to my kids and my friends. I think that it is great that I can get pictures of my grand children so I can see how they have grown and my how they have grown up.
I really like to do Jigsaw puzzles on the computer. I find doing Jigsaw puzzles challenging. I have even gone on to the computer to look for chairs before going to the store to shop and I check our lotto numbers.
I'm still learning every week and I am doing something that I never thought I would ever do. And I really enjoy it.
