Ramblings of the Mildly Insanejust what the title says…the web isn’t just for the sane anymore
Word processors, eliminating the need for longhand, are the death of good penmanship. Before long, everyone will have the handwriting of a medical professional.
Actually, quite a few medical professionals (and other survivors of word-processor-induced scribal deterioration) have taken measures to prevent or reverse the handwriting woes. Quite a few of them, in fact, tell me that they seek out help because they’ve learned the hard way that computers do not replace all handwriting tasks.
My *signature* is becoming pathetic. However, my handwriting is not. In fact, I started writing everything out in cursive several months ago, just so my handwriting wouldn’t become chickenscratch.
We might not want to go there.
Since I have to explain that “write” means to use cursive. “I can’t print?!” Oy.
LOL! I love cursive. (I wonder if they still teach D’Nealian…that’s what I learned in grade school.) Done properly, it can be so beautiful, but don’t get me started on my signature.
Personally, I think I just have an unfortunate combination of letters strung together; no matter how I write it, it still looks…off.
On a different note, I’m surprised kids nowadays don’t think “to write” means “to text message”. All things considered, I say take what you can get.
Frack. I killed my own entry. XD
It was because I threw in a carrot. I MEANT to ask – what IS that. HA! (;
ROFL!!! I retract my “Sweet” comment in light of new information.
D’Nealian is a style of handwriting. It’s very easy to learn and very simple — not as fancy as my cursive now, but it gave me a great start.
Check out the website for some samples.
OH! I think the D’Nealian Cursive *is* what I learned in third-grade. It looks like what I use… (For the most part)
Crap. I doubled posted. UGH. I hate that. >___
No problem, double post taken care of. It probably happened because my site seems to be crawling right now. Hopefully it’s only a temporary glitch.
I noticed that about your site. I kept wanting to kick it. (; But, then, it might have gone slower. Technology likes to spite me.
I'm on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook (MySpace too, but I haven't logged in for what feels like a decade)
