    In primary school, we pretty much had cursive writing forcefed to us for the first couple of years. I didn't mind it too much, and I sorta picked up on the cursive writing soon enough once I got the hang of it, but it seemed unnecessary and the exercises we got were incredibly boring, based on rote learning and writing the letter over and over and over and over until you got it right.

    I pretty much tossed cursive writing overboard once I got to the point where it wasn't yapped on about every day and we could just write whatever the hell way we want. Since then, I pretty much lost the ability to write cursive writing (pretty at least). I don't really use cursive writing in signatures either, since mine's more or less a personalised way that I write my initials with a few fancy frills on it to make it my own.

    I can read it just fine too, I just don't feel the necessity to write it in any way. My own print font is just fine by me.

    We had to learn cursive in Year 4 to get our pen licenses (so we could use pen instead of pencil in our school books) so I've been using it ever since. I love cursive writing, it's kind of like a sign that the old world isn't quite dead yet.
