It’s funny how certain phrases have a, certain universal understanding. Regarding my handwriting, the description that could be applied would be “Doctor’s Handwriting”. More specifically in my case, “engineer’s handwriting”, which may as well be the same thing. To be honest, I’ve never had the best penmanship. It’s been one of my secret shames for the whole of my life. But something about the advent of ubiquitous word processing had worsened it after many years spent trying to improve. Now, it’s almost pointless to put effort into penmanship, seeing as so little that anyone ever gets to see is handwritten nowadays. Still, for my own personal edification, maybe I will start another handwritten journal. Sure I can type better than I write, but there’s something comforting about the tactile feel of pen or pencil on paper. And that’s another thing that can be universally understood.
