Folks, I’m gonna go on the record here and say that I LOVE THIS STORY.

And I think you’re going to feel the same way that I do!

Get started now, you won’t regret it!

I cant take notes on my computer? Fine, I’ll use a typewriter.

“I have a Spanish teacher that absolutely doesn’t allow us students to take notes on our computers because, ”We will use them to play games”.

They had a bright idea…

She has told us we need to take notes on paper, But didn’t say with a pen, so i decided to do something I have wanted to do for a long time.

You see, I collect typewriters, so I decided to simply use one of those!

So a few weeks ago I walked into class and pulled out this beast of a machine, Lectra 860.

The teacher was shocked and annoyed, but when I told her we were allowed to take notes on paper she actually let me use it.

That worked out well!

So i suppose it had a happy ending (for everyone other than mine and my classmates eardrums).

And lucky me, after bringing it to class a total of 7 times and taking very loud notes, we are now allowed to take notes on computers!”

Let’s see how people reacted to this story.
