We're a lot alike Jamo! (Sorry about that) I do the same thing, basically. I definitely don't use the "proper" typing technique, but I also use all ten fingers (I think - I'll have to pay attention better because I'm not 100% sure if I use my left pinky.) and can type fairly fast and well, (I rearly maek misrakes ) and without looking at the keyboard all of the time, simply because of repetition.
And as far as the most important class I ever took, I'm going to have to go with an elective I took in 8th grade, that was called something like "Fundamentals of Engineering." We did a lot of the same type of fun stuff you did in your engineering class. We made popsicle stick bridges, then tested their strength by stacking books on them. We did various other fun stuff like that all year, but the most memorable was a 2 or 3 day long field trip we took to a nearby lake in the woods that we surveyed and mapped. We did it in the most primitive way possible, using only strings, levels, protractors, and tape measures. It was a blast. That class, and that field trip is what convinced me that I wanted to be a surveyor.
Of course, then I got to college and found out that I could major in Surveying and be a surveyor or .... a surveyor. Or, I could broaden it a bit, major in Civil Engineering and have more options. So that's what I did. Now I work at a company where half of what we do is surveying, however, I'm 99% of the time on the engineering side.
EDIT: I'm not sure about @jamo but I find my bearings by occasionally looking at the keyboard. ;)
