I can type, and that's what I blame for killing my handwriting. Can't spell worth a crap though. Spell check ruined me there.

You sound like a prime candidate for caligraphy. My handwriting stinks too. But I can do decent caligraphy since I don't rush.

I've been doing the lessons found here. It's not really helping.
My block print is quite good but any form of cursive script looks like a seismograph with a seizure disorder.

I was told by a teacher back in junior high that my writing looked like a drunk schizophernic chicken had walked through a mud puddle and then across the paper. She ruined my poor psyche for life, I still don't write, print everything.

I have the worst handwritting. I blame my job with the city. Everything is either typed or printed. One reason I may never buy a fine fountain pen is that my poor handwritting skills won't do it justice.

I'm exactly the same way: horrible handwriting, but I can do some calligraphy. Well, I could. It's been a while since I've done it so maybe that's faded away by now.

It's obvious he's missing one essential qualification...

That being - since he admitted his handwriting sucks (and he is therefore flawed) - he obviously doesn't have enough arrogance to become a doctor. At least not a medical doctor - most of the MD's I know are extremely arrogant, almost to the point of "God-Complex", you know?

Talk to me about photography and some arrogance will be evident.

I have horrible "doctor's handwriting" and therefor have to print everything. I'm dyslexic to boot. Computerized medical records are my friend.

I remember back in grade school that cursive handwriting was supposed to be a quicker, more efficient way of writing by hand. Funny thing, I can print (by hand) faster and more legibly.

My ex, who works as a lab supervisor in a hospital told me that MD stands for Multiple Deities.
