My Handwriting Stinks!
xmas card horrors..

 3:06 pm on Dec 14, 2002 (gmt 0)

Hi all

Jeeez my handwriting sucks, it was always a bit shoddy but sitting here writing xmas cards I can see a serious decline...

I'm just not used to having to do anything but type ;)

Anyone have the same problem?

I have developed my own version of Shorthand, which Nobody else can read.

The problem is, even I can not work out what the heck I have been writing.

Nick, go to the doctor and have a prescription filled for anything. Trying to read it will make you feel better.

hehe, well the xmas card writing nightmare is now done ;) -- Ivana made me do it!

I was just commenting on this yesterday.

One of the reasons I first go 'into' computers was that my handwriting was terrible.

Last night I was reviewing some notes I made and couldn't read more than every third word.

I have almost forgotten how to use a pen - it was just a scrawl - in fact I can type faster than I can 'hand write'.

LOL MacG - Intelligent people like doctors and SEOs always have bad writing - the brain works quicker than the hand ya see. I never trust someone who writes slow and tidy:)

Naturally I was writing these cards with my positiontech pen from pubcon ;) -- the pen felt completely alien to me..

I guess some day soon we'll have 'paper illiterates'..

This is an interesting subject.

I remember I used to write cursive, but I slowly moved to all capital letters - I don't know when the transition happened. The other day I had to write something using cursive, and I was shocked, I could hardly do it -- I was actually struggling to get something down on the paper.
I thought to myself, this is really sad, I could write better when I was 10 years old.

My signature is so bad, that my wife always makes fun of it, pretty soon it will be only a straight line.

Speaking of xmas cards, that is why I have a wife.... well, not the only reason :)

1. Take a sheet of blank paper.

2. Sign your name multiple times with at least a 1/2" of space between each one vertically.

3. Head to your local Kinkos or some other outlet that offers self inking stamps. Select the best looking signature from the sheet you signed and have a stamp made.

4. Make sure to choose blue as your ink color.

5. Keep it locked up in a secure place.

I too, along with many others, have noticed a decline in our ability to write. I'd prefer not to have to pick up a pen anyway! ;)

The highest paid professor at my university had the nicest hand-writing I've ever seen. It was so nice, almost freaky.

He left his post of chair of math department to go overseas to do some research on real-time model approximations or something like that.

Go figure.

Iīm currently suffering from rheumatic symptoms in my thumb and index finger from all the exams I had to write. Having to write about twenty five pages in five hours was just too much for my right hand. I probably hadnīt written that much by hand in the past three years.
