    Last may I broke my right arm.

    For years I thought that I was always right handed, but I realized that I was ambidextrous! XD I guess I learn something new everyday!

    I am ambidextrous and I can proudly say

    that I love it! It wasn't until the 6th grade that I tried writing with my write hand. I had always written with my left and played sports with both hands. For example, in volleyball I can serve with both hands and in basketball I can dribble the ball with both hand, so...

    I am ambidextrous...sort of.

    Up until first grade, I was left handed. Then I started getting migraines at least once a day. So, my teacher made me switch. I've been fine ever since.

    I've always been able to do most things with

    both hands. Use a knife at dinner, throw a ball, etc. It comes in handy when you pull a muscle in your other arm :)

    I can use either hand!

    I can paint, write, sew and play tennis, with either hand. I've been told that is quite unique!

    I write mainly with my left hand,

    but I can do just about anything with both hands like painting and coloring. I can catch and throw with both hands as well. I only use scissors and brush my teeth with my right hand. I also brush my hair with both hands.

    ?right/left?

    I never really interacted with Left and Right the way other people did. I usually would start out using one hand, and when it got tired, I just switched hands, and tried the other. This was always cool, except the outside world didn't really function this way and I was often very...

    3 Rights Make A Left

    So many people are right-handed that it’s kind of weird to see a left-handed person. But the most curious incident is when we find someone who can use both hands to write and do various activities. Aren’t I curious then? =D When I draw I prefer to use my right hand to get...

    I love being ambidextrous

    because I draw, write, and pretty much everything else with both hands. You should see the looks on people's faces. The faces people make are quite funny.

    Entertaining

    I do most of my writing with my right hand, but my left arm is stronger and I open everything with that hand.  I can write left-handed, but it's not as pretty.  I can also write with my feet!   That's really not pretty but it's fun to use to entertain people!

    It Annoys People... *giggle*

    i can write legibly with either hand, though it takes more work to do so lefty.  the really odd part is that i pitch right and bat left.  I catch lefty. it drives a friend of mine nuts, because she is teaching me sign language, and for that, one hand is supposed to...

    I was born right handed,

    but decided a few years back it would be worthwhile to train myself to become ambidextrous. I thought, if I ever break my right hand or arm, I'll be able to use my left. I also write a lot and often, with a good old fashioned pen or pencil on paper, and after a while my wrist...

    Convenience And Relief

    I taught myself to be ambidextrous, I wasn't always this way. I remember some story I came across where this person had their writing hand injured in some way and in order to sign a legal document they had to put an X. Well I didn't want that to happen to me. So I practiced...

    I broke my right arm a several years ago.

    I was only right handed then, but I had to write with my left because it hurt too much to write with my right. I can write with both equally now

    I used to be left handed

    when i was younger, then i broke my wrist and had no choice but to use my right hand and now my right hand is more dominant than my left, and it's harder to write with my left but i still can.

    Ambidextrous And Stammering?

    I grew up being the only leftie in a family of six, so I learnt to do many things right-handed too. Often my dad would laugh when he found the lock on the front gate totally opposite to how any one else would lock it. Washing cars etc, was easier since when one hand got tired, I...

    Completely Ambidextrous

    My entire life, I've heard my mom explaining to friends and family who see me switching my hands that I was a "weird case". She explained that I was neither left or right handed, which is what I carried with me for many years. In my adolescence, I came across the term...

    I started figuring this out years ago

    when I saw a guy struggling with some wrenches. During this time, he mumbled something about wishing he was a left-handed mechanic. I realized that is why he did not use his other hand to turn the wrench. I would simply switched hands to get the bold tight. I always used the...

    It was expected to occur somewhere down the

    line, as my Dad's Dad and my Mum's Mum are both ambidextrous. I enjoy confusing customers by switching writing/carving from my right hand to my left.

    My husband knows I am

    and have seen me switch a few times when I have both children at my sides doing their HW. He's even seen my daughter do it. But when my youngest picked up his markers to draw with his left hand my husband jumped out of his chair. Lol.

    I will admit, I do prefer my right hand.

    But I find myself naturally switching to the left all the time. It is really helpful when I get hand cramps and whatnot.

    Feet

    I am ambidextrous, but mostly in my feet. I am right handed, and there are things that I prefer to do with my left hand. But when it comes to my feet, I am fairly balanced in my ability to do things with both feet. In playing soccer, most girls on my team are right footed, and...

    The Devils Hand?

    When I was a little girl in Catholic school, I remember my knuckles getting smacked with a ruler whenever I used my left hand to write. Naturally I had to learn to use my right hand lest I look like I'd lost a prizefight. After a near-fatal vehicular accident, I sustained some...

    I learned to write with my left

    because i usually always use both hands like i would use right hand and then change to left occasionally because it just felt natural to me. Because it felt so natural i thought i should write with it too. So it only took me a week of writing "The quick brown fox jumped over the...

    I'm ambidextrous, but

    which ever hand I learn to do something with first is the hand that feels more natural. So I write right handed, but shoot a basketball left handed.

    both hands. It's always fun to confuse people about my dominant hand. It's awesome because I can adapt to anything and I have an advantage in sports because no one I'm playing against knows what hand I'm playing with, and when they figure it out, I can switch. If my hands ever...

    Simultaneous Drawing And Writing Using Two Hands

    I simultaneously draw using my two hands. One hand will be using a pencil, while the other one will be using a pen or vice versa. I can pencil in one hand, while the other hand can ink, and this is performed at the same time. I can also use pencils in both hands or ink...

    We often wonder why we use

    both hands to do certain things, well, for example, I write with my right hand while I eat when I use the right hand to the left hand fork and knife! When a soccer ball using the right so they are ambidextrous!
