Hey guys! How are yall? I honestly have been so excited about this post and thinking about what I’ll write. I hope you guys enjoy, and let’s jump right in (because I just totally remembered how awful intros are) !
So if you didn’t know that I’m left handed then I totally understand, it’s not like I’m screaming my life onto every post I write…right??? Anyways, if you are a lefty then you probably understand everything right now and could click off of this post and click the follow button…yeah?
Alright, let’s get on to the first problem of being left-handed:
Getting Ink ALL OVER the Edge of Your Hand
I’m sure even the right-handers have this problem a bit but not WHENEVER YOU FLIPPING WRITE. You are just writing with your pencil or inky glitter pen when you look at the side of your hand, near you pinky finger, and it’s either blackened with led or purple from you ink, or a combination of the two, having built up from the day. The ink is all over your fingers and hand and nails and it looks awful.
why are we so cursed in the writing world??
Smearing Everything You Write. Everything. No Exceptions. and this results in ink getting all over your hand. why. why. why.
So my handwriting already isn’t beautiful, but it is definitely made worse by the fact that it is covered in ink splats! Calligraphy pages are marred in black smears and homework is messed up. Let’s not even talk about the whiteboard*! I sometimes have to write the homework up on a big whiteboard. I finish writing. I look back. All that I’ve written is smeared, mainly on the bottom. Everyone is like “seriously”.
*Says let’s not talk about it then precedes to do just that.
As you can understand, it sucks.
Bumping Elbows with the Person Sitting Next to You because your teacher didn’t realize what he’s doing PUTTING A LEFTY NEXT TO A RIGHTY…
Shoot, the desks at my school are all pushed up next to each other. I’m sometimes lucky enough to be put on the outside, having nobody on my left side, but other times I am pushed between two people and am constantly rubbing elbows. Not only does it cause me to make long stripes across the paper(ugh), but it can also cause me to inflict the same pain on them. SORRY! Yall I don’t know why God designed people to have different dominant hands (or why we aren’t all those spedecial ambidextrous peoples) but He has a plan (to make my handwriting suck?).
Getting Ink ALL over your hand and being laughed at and crying and being embarrassed
yayyyyy. Alright so I’ll put it out there that I am white. No I’m not racist yall. Sorta on the pale side during winter, so imagine how awful it is to randomly change skin color on the side of your hand and fingers. This can result in me becoming partially green or purple. Yay life.
Being Mentally Abused Every Time You See Somebody Write Right-Handed
Oh my gooooooooossssh why are there so many righties??? Only a flipping 10% OF PEOPLE ARE LEFTIES (lefties unite!) HOOOWWW! Honestly though I can never watch somebody write with their right hand for too long because I AM SO CONFUSED at how they can do that likeeeee whaaaa? Does it confuse right handed people though? I’m not sure but maybe?? I have no idea but I do know that watching YouTubers handletter gives me a headache (they are all right-handed yeesh).
While researching and looking for pictures (yeah i did work for this post) I saw the thing I need. I want it. It would save my excuse of a life. It is my new love. It is the half-hand glove. Alas, I shall share it:
Smear guard, saves your hand from getting inky, if you want to send it to me that is awesome, is not disgustingly hideous (mostly). Please. Please Please. Thank you.
Anyways, comment below if you’re a lefty, if you are a righty, if you experience problems such as this, or if you are a spedecial ambidexterous person, I wanna know!
