I remember all the attempts at typing lessons I had in elementary and middle school tried to make me not watch my fingers, but I always resisted it until recently. I still do it sometimes out of habit, but it's becoming just as easy not to now.
Same with me! While I find myself looking at the keyboard off and on, over 90% of the time, I only look at the screen while typing.

I used to not be able to do that, but when I learned, I was like... "this is so easy now, why couldn't I do it before!"
