This quiet evening, I thought I'd begin the long weekend with a bit of work. You know, still trying to catch up. I wrote a whole page of notes, then got to this new page. In a moment of distraction, I wrote that sentence, then took a photo.
"I'm thinking about my penmanship instead."
I truly was absent from the third grade the day the teacher taught the class how to write "f", capital "I", and lowercase "j", and how to join lowercase "a", "c", and "d" to adjoining letters. (It's possible I was absent for a few days.) My penmanship was an abomination till I taught myself to write in all-caps in high school. I stuck with that for a while, then was mature enough to just accept my handwriting as it is. I can make it look alright if I try really hard, but otherwise I like it.
ETA: This is my favourite pen. Black ink, red ink, and pencil all in one. (My true favourite is a 100% pencil by the same company.)
