My handwriting isn't *quite* that bad… At least not in that respect...
Lol, my handwriting can be neat if I want it to be and when I don't scribble through my work (which is like never, but, oh well) Even when I'm writing neatly, I'm still too lazy to draw perfect little circles at the end of each sentence, so I just resorted to draw minuscule vertical lines. Which works amazingly until people confuse those with my commas. My commas are usually curved, but when I start writing really fast, you can't distinguish between a comma and a period... :lol: Guess I know what to work on now :cry:
Mine can be good if I want it to be… Perfect little circles? Isn't it just a dot (or 3...)?
It can be a circle in other languages, and habits generally carry through, even if you're writing in English.

Lol, probably, but I'm kinda OCD about... lines? Idek what...

I don't usually handwrite in Chinese, if that's what you're implying.

Well I’m not doing a report, but, ha ha. Its 3:34, and I’m dead inside.

TPBM gets a bit loopy at 2:30, and they starts spewing facts about their next haircut and, their bird, who perched on my their glasses last night, and how I’m they're gonna get it cut ant a slant about mid neck level.and Do you think this post would will be on per(pre?)scriptivitus Prescriptivists? And, oh crap I need help!
Yes, I do think it will be on Prescriptivists.

If you are going to be a prescriptivist, don't use slang.
Slang is technically still correct grammar as it's basically just an English dialect. If you don't consider slang to be proper grammar, then you're saying that all dialects are improper grammar which is untrue.
Also, I'm somewhat a prescriptivist (I still don't know whether I can consider myself one) and I use slang too.

Yeah, I hate it when this drops off of the first page. It's like a attempt to end Grammar Nazism...


Don't you dare go after the "a" in this post.
