What's your handwriting look like?

Thread title. Cursive? Print? Legible? Illegible? Some combination of all the above? Let's see it.

The weird 'M' is because I forgot I was doing all-caps for a second. My print is basically cursive, so my 't' and 'I' have little cutlasses at the top since there's no other way to finish in one stroke.

Mine looks like calligraphical rape and I dare not share it. I dislike signing things for this reason.

you know, very rarely do I find someone who actually likes their handwriting. Why is that?

Some people are just a little too self-critical maybe. People with sloppy handwriting may feel as though their intelligence and handwriting don't match up. I've actually witnessed friends whom I know to be well-educated, remark about their handwriting. Being particularly sensitive over signatures is probably one of the more common complaints I hear when I send clients account applications to sign. Just one example.

It was originally written in gel pen and corrected probably a year later in pencil.

Apologies for my **** phone camera. Three years young, which is old af for a smartphone!

ANYWAY yea...sometimes letters connect more than shown. Also of note, I use small-caps r's bc people made fun of my handwriting and it affected me that profoundly
we built our house of cards
but it feels like it's still ours...

Writing on wrinkled paper gives me anxiety.

It was the closest paper to hand. I flattened it out as best I could.

Looks fine to me. Maybe it's your screen that's wrinkled, steeze.

My cursive got all frigged up when I was taking Russian in college. I had to learn Cyrillic script, and it made my handwriting weird. Current model is an amalgam of the two. I hope it's legible.
