If you slant to the left you may be cray cray

As a kid I wanted to be left handed so bad.  I used to practice all the time.  I would get caught and feel weird, lol.  In 4th grade we were rewarded with the ability to use pen if the teacher deemed your handwriting neat enough.  It took a while, but I loved using those erasable pens even if the eraser was complete crap.  Another thing I loved was getting books about handwriting analysis from the library, so when I got this handwriting tag from Olivia I WAS STOKED.  Thanks girl!  There was a similar one going around a while back that I could have snagged, but I wanted a personal invite :p

Here are the rules and questions:

Rules: Get a piece of paper and write the answers to the following questions:

1. What is your name/blogger name?
2. What is your blog's name/URL?
3. Write,"The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog."
4. What's your favorite type of food?
5. What are some of your favorite makeup brands?
6. What are some of your nicknames?
7. What are some pictures you like to doodle?

Choose a couple of blogs to tag and have fun! 

You can click on the picture to make it larger.  First off, I was so excited to do this tag, I spelled my name wrong, LOL.

A few things I remember from the handwriting analysis books:

1. Dotting "i's" - All I remember is if you dot your 'i' right over the top you pay attention to detail. There was one about crossing "t's" too, but  I don't remember how that goes.

2. The height of your "d's" - apparently the higher your little "d's" the more confidence/self esteem  you have.  Actually I remember reading this as a kid and noticing mine were pretty short, I made a conscious effort to write them taller, lol.  Whether I have self esteem or not I don't know, but I now prefer higher "d's" for esthetic reasons. 

3. g's and y's - if you close off the tail loops you are a giving person, if you leave them open you are selfish.

4.  If you sentence slants upward you are optimistic.  If it slants down ward you are pessimistic.  It your sentences are straight you're balanced ... writing on lined paper helps.  

5. If your letters slant to the right you're happy, if they slant to the the left you may be a psycho.

Anyway moving on ....

I sketch molecules by default, but in my free time I like to sketch faces, hands and weird abstract stuff.  I like to sketch things I can see and I always have my hand to look at, lol.  The abstract things start out with a name ... then I decorate it.

 She didn't help things.
Other random doodles ... (click to enlarge) when I am sitting in a really boring seminar (usually bio related) the doodles start.

You may be able to see my name in both of those abstract ones ... and of course TRAY hands.
