Wow. Your handwriting is really legible and nice. Mine sucks. My fifth grade teacher actually made fun of my "cursive" so I printed from fifth grade through high school. Now I scribble notes at work that only I can read. Everything else is keyboard. And now it actually physically hurts to write with a pen or pencil. Weird.

BRILLIANT! I love it!

I write in cursive almost exclusively. I've been told my penmanship is sehr gut.

Sra said...

If my cursive looks nice, it's only because I have to write very slowly and deliberately in order to remember how to do it. I remember in grade school, I would get all A's except for in handwriting, where I always got a B. Jerks.

I will have to see this sehr gut penmanship of yours, Sov. I was always puzzled by people who continued on with the cursive. I've known a few who do, and their writing is always very pretty.

Cursive is actually easier for me than regular print. I've been told it's a right/left brain thing.

Which are you?

Sra said...

Honestly, I'm not sure which brain hemisphere is dominant in me. I have a creative side, and a very analytical side. I'm right handed, and I understand that is controlled by my left hemisphere, so maybe my left is more dominant, which would mean I'm more analytical than creative.

Especially these days, that's probably true.

I dropped cursive (and lowercase print) a long time ago, too. Perhaps unrelated, I also had one of my coworkers (call center days) call my print handwriting "serial killer script." Yours is definitely more legible than mine. My 'T' looks like '7,' my 'G' and 'E' tend to look alike, etc.

Sra said...

If I recall, you write in all capital letters, which is somewhat unusual. I think lower case letters are quicker to write than capitals. I also think a serial killer might write in all capitals.

But I think my T might also look like 7, at least in my signature, but only in that the vertical line is slanted / thusly.

Sra said...

Oh duh, you just said you dropped lower case print, thus confirming my memory. Silly me.

Zac said...

"I also think a serial killer might write in all capitals." Gee, thanks.

I do use a difference in size to denote proper capitalization, just no change in the form of the letter.

Jesus Christ, you are funny. This is so damn clever. Why didn't I think of doing this???? P.S. I'm totally going to rip this off. I'm fairly certain me telling you I'm going to do this makes it okay per copyright laws and such.

P.S. I print, too. Cursive be damned.

P.P.S. I agree with Zac---but also with blood spatter on the page.

I nearly shit when I had to write in cursive for the legal thingy on the SATs. I'm pretty positive I made a few letters up.

Karen said...

See there. I'm 100% right brained. Nothing analytical about me as far as I know.

The cursive works for me.

But seriously....for someone who doesn't like the cursive, you did an outstanding job.

To Zac: See, I'm trying to say that if you're a serial killer, you would write in all capitals. On the LSAT you would diagram that conditional statement thusly:

Serial Killer --> Write in Caps

The converse is also true:

Don't Write in Caps --> Not Serial Killer

But to say that someone who does write in all caps is therefore a serial killer is what's known as a "mistaken reversal". To take the converse, you have to both reverse and negate. Therefore, you are not necessarily a serial killer. At least not because you write in all caps. ;)

To O-T: Rip away. As my CC license on the sidebar says, borrowing and downright copying is absolutely allowed.

Sloan: When I first started to practice my cursive, I couldn't remember a few letters myself, so I'm sure if I went into this cold, I'd have made a few letters up too.

Karen: Thanks :)
