left-handed

Lefty Problems

- That awkward moment when you go to hug someone right handed and end up stopping because you look like you’re about to wrestle

- Scissors. Nuff said.

- Hanging up your clothes in the closet

- People CONSTANTLY asking you “OMG are you left-handed?!” When they see you write. 

- Only having right-handed friends

- Lefty guitars are too damn expensive

- Binders and notebooks.. ugh

- Smudging the page and getting it all over your hand!

- Trying to eat next to someone right-handed

- Desks. 

- LOCKERS!

A Swedish “wordle” based on the tongue twister “hundra hundar undrar”. Recorded this mainly to see how I grip the pen when I write/draw. Most ppl hold the pen further down where the grip section is located. I hold pens usually right behind the grip sections and on the body instead, which is a common thing when you sketch and draw. I think I hold so far out on the pen while writing mainly because it makes me not use the “hook grip” commonly used by left handed, while still create a distance between the nib and the palm giving the ink a few more seconds to dry. It’s my way to prevent smearing the letters while writing. #handwriting #fountainpen #lefthanded

Sometimes it just looks so easy to be right handed. Is it? I just watched some of those hand lettering and cookie decorating videos and I keep thinking it must be so easy to have seen what you just did so you can match the slant of letters when you are writing or, like, not accidentally smudge the thing you just wrote as your hand moves across text.

Most of the time I don’t think about being left handed but every time I’m struggling to use a power tool or kitchen appliance or think about buttons or zippers on clothes or the ways doors open, I’m forced to think about it.

Humans are adaptive so over almost 4 decades I got this, but sometimes I think just about how much easier simple things could be.

This relates to witchcraft cause while we are on a list of things I reject I also hate deosil and windershins and the “left hand path”. My path is always left handed.

Did you know that almost everything man made is designed for right handed? Desks, keyboards, zippers, tools and other everyday items aren’t made to be used w your left hand. So when you’re left handed you grow up using your non-dominant hand more than a right-handed person do. It’s not really a big problem because we either learn to use both hands or we find a workaround. But whenever someone tells me I can’t do something because of being left handed I gladly prove them wrong. My left hand might not do perfect cursive but I’m better at using both hands than most of you. #lefthanded #handwriting #fountainpen
