    This Actually Hurts Me

    I love history and I love to pour over old books and diaries, deciphering handwriting styles and just the simple evidence of people from ages before. I have tried keeping a diary, but I always want to go back, edit, rewrite etc... or I just never have the patience to write each...

    Lets Just Say

    my penmanship is among the worst I have ever seen. College taught me to write very quickly, and illegibly to anyone other than myself. Tying is just the better way for me.

    K, So This One Time

    lol I actually don't have one experience in particular but oh my gosh my writing is so dramatically better when it's typed up then when I write it. With the computer, you can type, add in words, change words, with just a few clicks. If you make a mistake in writing, you have to...

    It's Frustrating.

     I can type rapidly and accurately with absolutely no issues whatsoever. I rarely need to alter anything that I, even for grammatical mistakes. However my handwriting is a completely different story. I cannot write quickly or neatly. It's especially frustrating in exams...
