    I can't do much at all with my left hand.

    I hope my right hand doesn't get screwed up, because my handwriting would basically be illegible.

    ...but my mom taught me how to tie shoes

    as a lefty. I just found out that after all these years I've been doing it opposite from all my other right handed friends. Go figure!

    paws"...does that mean I'm a "north paw"?

    I remember kindergarten.

    Only one boy was allowed to use his left hand to write. When anyone else tried they were corrected to use their right only.

    Yeah I'm right handed

    I started out as a lefty.

    But because of the times and the beliefs back then my mother decided to make me a righty. In order to do that she would tie my left hand behind my back to the school desk she bought and made me learn to write right handed. I am pretty sure that is what broke me!

    I'm ambidextrous, I tend to use my right hand

    although I was born left handed. My brother and one of my brothers are ambidextrous as well. I taught myself to use my right hand by copying my siblings and my parents, I was the only one using my left hand, so I faked being able to use my right hand until I actually could...

    I use my right hand for everything,

    so that makes me strongly right-handed. When I'm at the gym I try to also add a bit of extra weight to my left arm to keep things balanced. Being ambidextrous would be useful at times, but somehow us rightys must manage with just one paw. :)

    Remember when you broke your right arm

    and had to write a paper for your 6th grade writing and penmanship class for a 1/4 if your grade and it looked like a 1st grader wrote it? No?! Oh then I guess that was just me. Sorry my bad. Carry on.

    Doodles! Right hand vs left hand.

    (On a side note, I think my right hand is getting carpal tunnel syndrome. Should I rest it or stretch it? It's been a few days and it doesn't seem to be getting better. It just feels funny.)
