I actually think I've regressed to something even more simple than sans serif, except for the loops I throw on the letter J and the letter G. My lowercase Es look like a smaller version of their uppercase, my lowercase As look like a backwards 6, and my Bs/Ps/Qs/Ds are more or less just hooks facing one way or another.
It's practical, and it looks good, but it's not very legible ... (ironic, considering how I consciously changed it to be MORE legible).
They do have perfect handwriting. My Grandmother had Catholic handwriting. I can mimic it if I try. I was always good at forging my Mom or my sister's hand writing, they were all derivitives of that. Which mine is similar to both of theirs, but distinctive.
My bf's Dad tried telling me my signature was wrong because it's practically illegible. I tried explaining to him that the point of a signature that it is your distinct mark. But he argued that it's supposed to be able to be read. His signature looks like classic handwriting taught out of a textbook in the 50's. Which is likely when he learned it... However, his handwriting isn't that neat. I think it would be harder to mimic someone's signature if it were written in their natural scrawl, rather than very precisely. Since your natural hand movements leave particular indentations and marks, whereas writing it slowly and perfectly would look the same.
You know, I really do just go on and on, don't I. Do I have a point? Not really...
Am I the only person who has multiple types of handwriting? Because I do. Sometimes I even sort of "code-switch" between the types without even meaning to.
My normal handwriting I would describe as a connected print with a few letters (f, q, J, sometimes s) written in a more cursive manner. I hardly ever cross my Is and I never dot my is or js. Some final letters in words (n, m, f, a and e sometimes) have long tails and my gs, ys, and js will have the same type of tail at the end of a word.
My note-taking handwriting is all-caps, although I use larger and smaller caps for capitals and lowercase. I write my school writing and fill out forms in that because it is the most legible and people tend to prefer it over my normal handwriting or quick handwriting.
My quick handwriting is based on my normal handwriting but comes out more like shorthand. I usually only use that when I am writing things for myself like in brainstorming and such. It's different enough from my normal handwriting that I consider it a different style.
My cursive looks exactly how I learned it in elementary school. I don't use it much since it is slower than the others. Not that it's particularly slow, but I tend to write faster not-cursive.
