    "hook Writing"

    I'm left handed and know it can make it hard to do certain things sometimes but the one thing I don't understand is why some people do the "hook" thing with their hand. I have never had to do this, I just turn the paper sideways instead of my hand. But then again I know it's just...

    the only thing i do not like bout being left

    handed is when teachers have us sit at tables at school or desks that are set side by side and I'm on the right side of a right hander, cause were always knocking elbows. Anybody else have this issue.

    Left Handed

    I'm left handed.  Don't know how these things work out. That's just the way I am.  Makes me feel kinda special.  At least I know I'm in my right mine! bw

    The Only One

    I am the only one (that I know of) in my family who is left-handed. I mean, I'm sure there are other people in my family... Somewhere. I was the only child for nearly seven years and spent most of my weekends with my grandmother and 4 (now 5) cousins. I remember...

    when I was in first grade,

    I could write with both hands. my teacher hated that and was mean to me. my mom confronted her and I had to choose a hand to write with because the the teacher said I couldn't use both. so I chose my left hand. I can still write with both but left is stronger. and I still do...

    Live and Learn

    I grew up being the only lefty in my house. My brothers, both older than me, taught me how to throw a ball right handed and golf right handed, etc. but I still write only with my left hand. Both my grandpa and his sister Donna are left handed. My grandpa went to the same...

    My uncle, my stepsister

    and I are the only ones in the family that are. I'm proud of it because I'm awesome that's why. There are cons, but I don't care I love my left hand for who it is. (I know, I'm a weird person)

    I am left handed and I am proud of it,

    Although I can't do much with my right hand I am still proud being a lefty. I know being a lefty has lots of disadvantages, but those disadvantages I'm loving it.They said left handed is sinistral or sinister, but I don't believe in it. I feel lucky being a left handed it's not...

    Hard, But Gains Me Some Individuality...

     I'm left-handed, and although it can be a real hindrance sometimes, I think all in all I'm happy to be.  I mean, it's really annoying, moving your hand after writing and realizing ' Oh look, my ink's spread half way across the page. Again.', but it makes me feel...

    Certainly Am :d

     I love being Left Handed. I remember as a child, my Grandmother (of whom I was extraordinarily fond) being slightly upset by this - a minor set back - I was her grandaughter and she loved me!. I think it was a "no-no" for her generation and children were coerced into...

    I Am Surrounded

    I work for a construction company. I have noticed we have a large number of left-handed people. A much higher percentage than I would have thought.

    Made of Awesome

    Guess who is left-handed. Guess who else. Guess who else. Know what that means? The rest of us left-handers are awesome by default.
