The lovely Tabitha tagged me in a little handwriting project, and since I think in this blogger community, where every word is typed and text only gains personality through the actual content of someone’s blog post, it would be kind of nice to actually see people’s handwriting. I am a big fan of – pretty! – handwriting and therefore, I’d love to see yours :)
And of course, I’ll start and share mine!
Here are the rules:
Write down the following, snap a picture (or scan the document), post it, and tag others.
1. Name/Blog Name
2. Right handed, left handed or both
3. Favorite letters to write
4. Least favorite letters to write
5. Write: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
6. Write in caps:
7. Favorite song lyrics
8. Tag 7 people
9. Any special note or drawing
That’s right – I print. I pretty much have since 5th grade when the teachers finally started not caring about cursive that much anymore. I don’t even know anymore how to do cursive. The way I learned cursive in elementary school is pretty much outdated now anyway and the way kids learn cursive in school nowadays (in Germany) is just so ugly, in my opinion. The “t” bothers me especially, I can’t even tell you why exactly. It just looks wrong.
And then compare it with the American cursive handwriting which I actually find very pretty.
I think it’s interesting to see how everybody later on develops a very unique handwriting which has nothing – or very little – to do with how it was actually taught in school. Often, it’s a mix between cursive and print.
Is that true for yours?

I’d love to see all of your handwritings!
