I haven't written anything other than a signature in so long.  I used to take my notes in cursive when I was in college.  I also wrote letters to my husband while he was deployed.  I don't have much cause to these days.  I'm indifferent to it fading away.  My handwriting is cute and I'm a lefty.  My husband is also left-handed and his is awful.  Dead

I think the more technology advances, fewer chances we'll have available to awaken and use the creative sides of our brains with less & less "hands on" things. Creating a society of mindless drones.



Just my $0.02.

In print. I was a the dentist's office a few weeks ago and a 17 y.o. girl had now idea how to fill out a paper application. Everything was in 3rd grader's print....including her signature.

But after she was done, she was texting like nobody's business.....Sleepy

This is another thing that baffles me. Kids do not know how to fill out applications. My aunt said she had to tell my 18 y.o. cousin what to put for everything on a job application. She didn't even know what to put in the field for what country she's from. She kept looking for name of our state instead of putting United States.

SMH...

i think that even people who dont know how to write in cursive.. know how to do their signature. 
most ppl at least.. 

i mean ppl know that with autographs and stuff its not regular print.. so they probably practice writing their name in some type of scibbly/fancyish way…
