Pretty much the only thing I still hand-write anymore are the insides of cards I give to people for birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays, plus their corresponding envelopes. I pay my bills online, so I don’t need to write checks. No one I know that lives out of state doesn’t have at the least, a Twitter account, so I can just tweet them a few times a day rather than write a letter. I’ve never been in a position to have write and send out Thank You cards for anything, and I’ve been out of school a while now, so physically writing out homework assignments is a thing of the past.
I can type 100+ wpm though, so for me, it’s just easier to use a computer for all my communication needs. I used to be able to write very fast, filling up several pages front and back, in just a few minutes, but those days are gone. Even now I’ve noticed my impeccable penmanship starting to get a bit sloppy around the edges, simply because I don’t use it as much anymore. If I have to jot anything down as a quick note, I print, I don’t use cursive. If I’m honest, it kind of stinks, because I wish I had more reason to write things out by hand, but I don’t. The opportunities just aren’t there.
