I used to have really nice penmanship in grade school, one of the best in class. Now I rarely use it and it looks like a mess.
24 yrs old???. WoW!, You are a rarity ...I'm also a millennial (24 yrs old) and my elementary school teachers made us learn cursive because their reasoning was that nobody uses anything but cursive once you get older. It was fun realizing that barely anyone uses cursive. I was petty, so whenever one of my teachers in middle school or high school would piss me off I would use cursive because it would take them forever to read it hahaha.
I use a fountain pen all the time. My regular handwriting is horrible but my cursive is beautiful.
My grandpa used to strike me on top of my head with 2 of his knuckles if I did one wrong stroke writing a Chinese character. OUCH!
My mother sat next to me with a pair of scissors when I was practising piano to make sure my pinky wasn't sticking out. Also a ruler to rap my hands if they weren't in the right shape when playing the piano.My grandpa used to strike me on top of my head with 2 of his knuckles if I did one wrong stroke writing a Chinese character. OUCH!
