I have always had such sloppy handwriting (re: the picture in this blog). When I was in school and many girls were perfecting their amazing cursive I felt like writing down all of the stories in my head was necessary and doing it FAST was even more important. Now there are still times I wish I had WAYYYY nicer penmanship. My fiance has to write all of our future cards because it’s frankly embarrassing. BUT there have been studies done that show that there is a connection between sloppy handwriting and intelligence. When your brain is working faster your hands often can’t keep up. That may not mean EVERYTHING and my D’s in many a high school math class certainly show that but if you’re a sloppy signer don’t stress- it may be because you’re so smart!
