Most adults today don't even know how to properly write in cursive. People seem to think that they can pick and choose which letters to write in cursive and which letters they can write in print with a little finesse, which are usually the capital letters.
Just about every signature I come across in my day to day life is made up of incomprehensible squiggles, and it just baffles me. Pretty soon, people will revert back to signing things with an X just like in the old cartoons I used to watch as a kid.

Keep that cursive going badw0lf. Practice, practice, practice.
On a more serious note. Most of my appointments are handwritten, and put into my Sunbird calendar later. I also write a lot of little notes and reminders. So I use it all the time.

Until reading this thread I didn't even think there would be more than one kind of handwriting. To me, handwriting IS cursive. I mean I've seen people writing the print style, but I thought they're just trying hard to be original (or that they don't know any better )
So everyone, or at least the big majority, writes in print in America? I might come for 3 or 6 moths to the USA, and now I have one more reason to worry, people won't even understand my handwriting...
