How to: Get Neater Handwriting! (by stuudytips)

Know your handwriting: Before you improve something, you want to know where it’s currently at, right? Analyze your handwriting. Note down what you dislike about your handwriting. Here are some aspects of your handwriting you can think about:

  • Spacing - How spaced out are your letters?
  • Slant - Are your letters slanted?
  • Curves - Does your handwriting have curves or straight lines?
  • Pressure - Are your letters light or dark?
  • Size - How big are your letters?


Find a style of handwriting. Find a style that’d you’d like to emulate in your own handwriting. This could be a friends, one pulled off the internet, or your neatest handwriting.

Practice the alphabet. Using the style of handwriting you want, write rows of letters. This will train your muscles to write these letters in opposition to your own handwriting.

Practice Writing Words. After practicing the alphabet, practice writing words. You could write about your day today, something you’re looking forward to, a to-do list, or these words that I randomly thought of:

  • Hi
  • Bye
  • Hello
  • Monday
  • Tuesday
  • Wednesday
  • Thursday
  • Friday
  • Saturday
  • Sunday
  • Car
  • Bus
  • Clothing
  • Sick

Tips

Use your whole arm. When writing words, you’re supposed to use your whole arm, as opposed to just your hand.

Try to write at least once a day. It will help with your muscle memory.

Pick a writing utensil that’s comfortable. 

Always write on the line. This will help size in addition to keeping your lines straight.

Day 5/100 ♡
15.01.17

I’m really feeling the orange-yellow colour scheme today! I’m reviewing for my AP Chemistry midterm exam. I’m typing up my lecture notes, mind mapping, and making quizlets for the vocabulary and whatnot. i’ve been drinking iced coffee all day! i can’t wait to get done with chemistry and work on a paper on instant gratification.

celebrate this cinco de mayo by selling your soul to college board for 5′s

To everyone taking an AP exam tomorrow:

Please remember that you are not a test score. While this is an important exam, one mistake won’t derail your future. It is going to be okay. Have confidence in yourself and know that you are prepared. You are going to be okay no matter what happens in that exam room. Don’t panic when you don’t know an answer. Move on to the next one. Come back if you have time. It is going to be okay. Good luck!

12•11•15 // So, today I took the first part of my AP chemistry final. We were allowed one 4x6 notecard—front & back—to write information on and you better believe I crammed as many things as possible onto it. Some people called it a bit excessive, but I called it using my resources.

To all of my lovely people taking AP Exams this coming week:

IF THERE IS A MATH PORTION OF THE TEST. ANSWER EVERY PART TO YOUR BEST ABILITY. IF YOU DONT KNOW THE ANSWER TO A QUESTION, BUT THE NEXT QUESTION IS BASED OFF OF THAT ONE, MAKE. UP. A. NUMBER.

*YOU CAN EARN POINTS FOR CORRECT SETUP*

I LOVE YOU AND YOU’RE GOING TO DO AMAZING.

//The only mind map you need for A2 Chemistry Mechanisms. I find Mechanisms very satisfying, however I often struggle to recall which mechanism accompanies which process. So, here’s my little cheat sheet for A level Mechanisms.//

FOR ANYONE FINDING OUT THEIR AP TEST SCORES THIS UPCOMING WEEK

YOU ARE NOT YOUR TEST SCORE(S). IF YOU PASSED THAT IS WONDERFUL AND I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU, BECAUSE YOU EARNED IT. BUT IF YOU DID NOT, THAT’S OKAY. YOU’RE STILL SMART AND WONDERFUL AND BRILLIANT. EITHER WAY DO NOT BASE YOUR EXISTENCE OFF OF YOUR SCORE OR SCORES. THESE ARE HARD CLASSES AND THE FACT THAT YOU GOT THROUGH THEM IS GREAT. YOU ARE GREAT. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT AND DON’T LET YOURSELF FEEL HORRIBLE IF YOU DIDN’T PASS. STILL LOVE YOURSELF. AND IF YOU DID, CELEBRATE; CELEBRATE EVEN IF YOU DIDN’T PASS. YOU’RE AWESOME EITHER WAY.
(i took ap world history this past year as a sophomore and i find out my score friday btw)
