Anyone else not type "properly"?

I never learned the proper way of typing (all fingers, set initially on the home row), and the term "home row" means nothing to me. By the time I even learned that there was a proper way to type, I was already so proficient at my own way that I didn't even bother learning.
Basically, I use the pointer and middle fingers on both of my hands, and that's about it (given exceptions here and there). The left hand seems to be more middle finger dominant, and the right hand seems to be more pointer finger dominant, but both hands implement both fingers when needed. I also don't have a "starting position"; whenever I begin a new sentence, I just bring the fingers to the first letters of the first word, and launch into an endless, dynamic flow of hand movement until the next break. My average WPM is about 90-95, and my accuracy is around 97%. Even if I type super leisurely, my WPM still rests around 80. And, whenever I even attempt the proper way, it feels so rigid to me that I can't even bring myself to bother.
Does anyone else have their own personally developed way of typing that actually works?
