When I entered university, I knew nothing about Microsoft Office. As I came from a high school where there was no proper class for learning computer and I didn’t have personal computer either, Ms Office was a new thing for me.
It just so happened at that time, as a new student, we were given a task by the senior in the university to write a paper so I rented out a computer at the rental service and learn Microsoft Word for the first time. Honestly at that time, I didn’t know what to do. There was a peer renting out a computer for the same purpose at the same time with me so I pay attention to what she did and asked her many questions. But then she seemed disturbed and because I am a sensitive person, I felt like I shouldn’t ask her any more question. That’s the type of person I am. She originally was a nice person and I didn’t blame her for feeling disturbed as I was indeed a disturbance to her task. Once I’m feeling rejected though, I would never ask any favor to the person, so I tried learning Microsoft Office by myself through trial and error. I observed my surroundings as well.
Day by day, as I kept practicing and doing trial and error, my skill in Microsoft Office improved. Maybe Microsoft Office is quite a user friendly program so we could catch on fast in learning it.
But nevertheless I am thankful to that friend who felt disturbed by me because it encouraged me further to learn it by myself.
I realize there is nothing we couldn’t learn if we put our mind to it.
