No Witty Title...Just My Handwriting Meme

I got tagged to do this meme by my dear Kay!! I don't have a nice intro like hers or Diana C.'s...but like them, I also enjoy seeing what people's handwriting looks like. I think it's just that much more personal and these days, it's pretty rare considering we pretty much communicate electronically via text, email, fb, gchat, etc. And yes, I am sentimental enough to keep all cards and notes, including notes all the way back from middle school.

About my handwriting...oh boy, where to start? I never had nice penmanship, I wrote chicken scratch as a kid and always thought it was the context and not the presentation of my writing, hahaha, what an idealist! Obviously that changed over the years and I basically adapted my handwriting to that of a friend whose penmanship I thought looked nice. So now I have sloppy Asian girl handwriting, kekekeke.

My writing quirks:

♥ Black pens > blue pens, FYI. And gel pens FTW!

♥ I don't dot my i's or j's (just like you, Kay! didn't know it was a Japanese thing though). I do once in a very rare while, but 99.9% of the time, I just don't.

♥ I write capital R's instead of lowercase r's...because I really don't like my lowercase r's, been that way prob ever since high school.

♥ I almost never write in cursive and when I do, I'm painstakingly slow. I don't like a lot of my cursive letters.

♥ When I sit, I tend to lean to the left and turn my paper and books accordingly...so most of the time, when I write, my letters slant to the left! haha I never really noticed this until I started learning Korean because all of my "straight" vertical lines lean to the left, hahaha. (The crazy thing is that it usually looks straight to me! But after scanning my meme, it's pretty obvious.)

Here is the meme. Get a piece of paper and write the following things down:

1. What's your name/your blogger name?
2. What's your blog's name/URL?
3. Write "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."
4. Favorite quote?
5. Your Favorite song?
6. Your favorite band/singers?
7. Anything else you want to say?
8. Tag three to five other people.

(obviously...click to enlarge...if you wish...)
In case you couldn't read my writing...I tag Iyah, Yasumi, Blair, and anyone else interested in doing this!

By the way...on a side note, I'm happy to say I've seen some of my beauty sweethearts' handwriting from cards and notes they've sent me! ♥ I can't wait to see your memes too. =)


  1. You have very nice handwriting! I might try this! Thanks for sharing~ It's something different to read.

  2. i think your writing is cute! definitely legible, unlike mine :X

  3. I ♥ your handwriting :) I can always tell by the handwriting on the box/envelope if it's from you!

  4. Aww thanks, you are too nice. Please do this meme if you haven't already! It's fun to see everyone's handwriting style. =)

  5. You are crazy! I absolutely love yours! First time I saw it...it's just like you, I can tell every letter was written with great care and thought! :)

  6. Hmm Idon't think I've actually seen yours...did/are you doing this meme too?! Please do!

  7. I don't think it's a Japanese thing since I've never seen other Japanese people who don't dot their i's and j's. It's just something I do!

    I love your handwriting! It's cute that it slants to the left. The majority of righties have handwriting that slants to the right!
