At least you're trying and succeeding! My mom is 49 and has been trying to use a damn computer for like ten years...she can't even copy and paste, lmao. Every day she'll come to me saying "OMG did you know you can highlight stuff and do this and that with the text? Holy crap computers are so neat!" >.< Duh mom. haha!
I just bought myself my first computer, I m almost 37 year old and my kids have been teaching me what to do. I also would be up a creek without a paddle if my sister wouldn't help me understand or walk me through just about everything.
