Growing up all of my teachers told me that my handwriting was horrible and needed improvement. I took two years of Russian in college and somehow learning Cyrillic made my handwriting even worse. My first few jobs after college had varying degrees of handwriting needed, but over time, and especially after I moved to development full time, I wrote things out longhand less and less.
As I’ve gotten older I am now writing things out far more than I used to (thank you Pormodoro Technique) I’ve noticed that my printing has markedly improved, while I’ve forgotten how to write cursive, and I can no longer write anything in Cyrillic, though I can still read it to some degree.
