    Ahh the Memories

    All throughout elementary school, I was chastised for my bad handwriting. I'd constantly have assignments rejected and sent back to be redone, sometime multiple times. Eventually, the teachers gave up and let me type everything. Now, my handwriting is a bit better, but I still...

    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...

    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...

    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. :)

    My Messy Handwriting Journey.

    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...
