Growing up, I had the worst handwriting. I could hardly decipher it to study which, probably explains a lot of my issues in elementary school.
However, in these past few weeks at Penn State I've noticed that my handwriting has become significantly neater and honestly just really pretty, which makes me very happy.
Could it be the smaller sizes of the desks that force me to write in a smaller space? Or the fact that I'm in college now and should probably be acting/writing like an adult.
Now, on a slightly random subject, my mother has the prettiest handwriting ever. It could be the most used font on Microsoft Word if she wanted it to. I've always wanted to be able to write like her and recently I've noticed little accents in my handwriting that are similar to hers.
(This is not my handwriting btw)
So, is handwriting hereditary?
Some research shows that because of a person's anatomy there may be similarities between the handwriting of a parent and their child. Reasons could be a person's bone structure, hand-eye coordination, mental ability in learning proper penmanship, and other characteristics that are inherited.
Others say that maybe as we grow up, we subconsciously copy our parents handwriting. This would probably be the reason for my change in penmanship. Either way I'm glad that my handwriting has become legible and neat for all my notes to look lovely.
