So I was visiting my friend Nicole's blog (won't link because she likes her job – and not for them to read her blog) and she did a meme that involves handwriting.
I used to get failing grades in handwriting when in elementary school. I hold writing utensils in a weird way, where I have two to three fingers on top of the pen, versus the standard one finger (I say this is a good thing since Princess Diana and Michael Jackson both supposedly held writing utensils in the same manner). This caused my handwriting to slant in 50 different directions. I would come home with that mushy wide-rule paper with big red slashes through it, showing my crooked illegible cursive.
I decided to embrace my handwriting, make it an art form, love it for what it was. I love my handwriting, and I LOVE to write. I write in journals not to pen my thoughts, but for the relaxing meditative results of pen to paper. I prefer old-school college-rule spiral notebooks (the more subjects the better) and a black pen with a medium tip that just glides across the paper. Seriously, I dig my Bic.
So the meme is – write the answers to these questions on a piece of paper:
- What's your name/your blogger name?
- What's your blog's name/URL?
- Write “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” (original meme forgot the word brown)
- Favorite quote?
- Your Favorite song?
- Your favorite band/singers?
- Anything else you want to say?
- Tag three to five other people.
As you see above (if you can read my handwriting), I am tagging everyone who wants to participate. I would love to see your handwriting! Blogging is a great way to connect with fab people from across the globe, but we rarely get to know regular in person things about our blogging friends – what we sound like, how we laugh, what our handwriting looks like. Gosh in this day and age, how many of us still write on a daily basis?
I want to know you better! If you do this meme, come back here and let me know so I can get to know you better!
