    Still Looks the Same

    I know there are some people old enough to recognize the shorthand language we old 'Secretaries' learned for dictation back in the olden days: Well, I took a year long course of this in school (who knew word processing and the internet were just around the corner). Though I don...

    Reason Why

    I didn't know how to write until my big brother taught me a year or two years ago (am 13 now). So it's not as pretty as everyone else's. I dun need it to be! Is just fine how it is. :)

    Neat Enough To Read, But Messy Enough To Be Messy

    It's mostly because I write weird, I think. When I do cursive, I do it all by the book. I never really use cursive, except for signatures and things like that, so it's fairly slow when I do use it. Printing is the way I usually write, but I do it weirdly. When I learned to write...

    Chicken Scratch

    Not Quite Messsy, It's Just Complicated

    Basically, I do have a messy handwriting but I mask it well. I had a truly illegible and thin handwriting as a child. Then, in 4th grade, after much training by my sister and my mother, I got really well in writing in print. Whatever I wrote was completely straight, really big...

    Ahh the Memories

    I Am Naturally Left Handed

    My Messy Handwriting Journey.

    All-caps Hell, Anyone? :p

    I have a confession to make: I have messy hand-writing. In fact, I wouldn't even go so far as to call it hand-writing, it's more like hand-PRINTING, as my letters are all written on paper as all-caps, or all UPPER-CASE, LIKE THIS! What is even more unfortunate is that in...

    My handwriting is pretty horrible.

    Not in a way that is unreadable just very annoying to read. When I was 14 my teacher really disliked me because of this. I got first in class for the first half of the year. Well, it didn't matter. All she could tell my dad on 'meet the parents say' was how messy my handwriting...
