I absolutely hate ballpoint pens. Fountain pens all day!
I’m a dude, and I’m lefty, so you can imagine my hand writing probably isn’t the prettiest. But I’m really weird, I have tons of styles depending on situations.
- Un-sharpened pencil: really ugly writing because It doesn’t feel the same and I just put no effort
- Sharpened pencil: better but still not the best
- Mechanical pencil: perfection
- Ballpoint pen: uglaaaayyyyyy
- Fountain pen: perfection
I remember I let my friend borrow my notes once, and he skimmed through to see how many pages, and was like “this isn’t your stuff” - I’m like yes it is, I write completely differently with different writing utensils, different speeds, different papers, different hand positioning. I never write the same way twice basically. Sometimes my ‘a’ actually looks like this, with the curve on top, sometimes its the normal a, each letter has so much variation. I enjoy playing around with it all.
I wish I could do cursive though, I’m HORRIBLE at that. DREADFUL.
