Press "Print Screen" on your keyboard, then either open Paint and press ctrl+v. Alternatively, there should be a folder in your "StarCraft II" folder named "Screenshots", that saves all of your screenshots that you take in-game.

Good job! t_her

Spending your money: Excellent job, you always stayed below 500 minerals. t_sel
APM: 20 is too low. Improve by 300% - Try giving at least one useful order every second (60APM). If you think you have nothing to do at times, do a "check". Look at every hotkeyed unit/building and make sure they are doing something productive. t_dia
Workers: 17 is way too low. Improve by 300% - 60 workers is a good number to go for, 25-30 per base for efficient mining. t_dia
WarCraft 3's 5 peons per gold mine translates to 3 workers per mineral patch in StarCraft 2. (But 2 workers per mineral is fine if you keep expanding.) You only had 1 worker per mineral patch which is 33% efficiency. t_dia

Always have one worker training in all of your bases. t_uni
