A refund for the time I spent learning cursive, please.
Every once in a while, I actually write by hand. Actually the only time I do it is when I have to sign something, or when I’m taking notes in class.
Do you fellow bloggers like to write by hand?
I used to do it all the time back when our essays actually had to be handwritten and word processed work was a twice-a-year thing. I actually looked forward to typing them up, but even back then we had to write them first by hand, and THEN type them up. I like to write, but it did come with a few difficulties along the way…
Sometimes I wish that we could get a refund for the time we spent learning cursive. Our teachers emphasized it so much, they made us think that in high school, cursive would be the only allowed writing-style. Then, after 4th grade, I never saw it again. Pheew..
“Alright students, pick a partner, and trade papers” oh how I hated those words. Well first of all, picking a partner is awkward already, but then letting them see our grammatical errors and give them the Power of the Red Pen? Horrible stuff.
Writing a Word You Don’t Mean to Write
Have you ever been writing something, then someone asks you a question and you write what you meant to say, not what you meant to write? (Whoa, did that question make sense?) Sometimes I’m typing up a post here on WordPress and it happens.. and sometimes it happens when I’m trying to text somebody (more on that in a later post :] )
That Awkward Moment When..
You cross something out instead of underlining it.
“This would never happen on MS Word!”
But yes, I’ve done it, and for some reason, I keep doing it. Sometimes I THINK I’m doing a good job on it, and the line looks near perfect under the word.. and then it gets crooked and goes right up to cross it out. Umph.
