New! [17 Feb 2010|04:44pm]

[ mood | creative ]

Hey I just joined LJ and now this community. I am extremely proud to be left handed. Im an artist (somewhat) and I owe it all to my left hand.
Heres some interesting people that are also lefties:
Barrack Obama
Bill Clinton
Lewis Carroll
Kurt Cobain
David Bowie
Jimi Hendrix
Paul McCartney
Albercht Durer
Da Vinci
For having such a negative symbol in religion I think we win here

Hello! [28 Mar 2008|05:12pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

I just joined :)!
I am left handed, I do everything with my left hand, even use a mouse and a can opener :3.
I also have a learning disability and have CP. I did not learn to tie my shoes until I was 12 when my mom taught me to tie them backwards (to her) with shoesboxs with laces put in.
I am getting my first ever left handed pen soon :)!
As far as my right hand goes it is barely in preschool when it comes to writing :\
To answer past posts :
I do curve my hand inward when writing, I don't try to hide my left handness, and I can not drink well with my right hand, it just doesn't feel right :P
Left handed and proud thank you :D!

Hey, is there any life in here? [09 Jul 2007|11:19pm]

I'm new and I see this community hasn't been updated in weeks! Actually, a lot of the left-handed communities on LJ haven't bene updated in months, whereas the left-handed communities on facebook are constantly updated, LOL! anyway, I'm an ambidextrous left-hander. I write, eat, pick up and put down things, and hold the phone with my left hand. I cut with scissors, cut with a knife, use can openers, strum a guitar, and use a mouse with my right hand. When I drink with a cup, I never use the same hand twice, in fact, sometimes even before I finish the drink, I'll switch hands with different sips. Thanks for putting this community up though!

gift ideas? [21 Aug 2006|05:13pm]

hi y'all!

I'm writing because I need some help. I'm trying to find a left handed specific gift for a classmate. It's for an end of the year gift that I'm giving on Friday. She was joking about how she could never write with gel pens because they smear as she writes and the ink skips as she writes (it makes her writing looks like she's hesitating)
She's a mom of two, very very busy (our school isn't conventional school, we're here like a full time job 40 hrs a week), always on the run..

I had a few things that would cater to her senior year but I wanted something a little personal and being left handed is personal! :)

suggestions would be wonderful..

Lefthandedness [22 Jun 2006|09:57pm]

I get so Sick And Tired of people calling me a South Paw when noticing that I write with my left hand.
A southpaw is a lefthanded person that curves their hand inward when writing.
I Do Not do that!!!!!! Yes I am a Dukey, But not a South Paw.

By the way, I did a while ago read somewhere that right handed people live an average of 7 years longer than the lefthanded person.

I don't know how that research was done.
But I hope they are wrong.

It's a conspiracy I tell you... [24 Aug 2005|01:44pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Does anyone else have their computer mouse buttons reversed? If so, have you noticed that just sometimes the mouse seems to forget it's reversed? Just curious. Maybe it's user error.

How many of you also have left-handers in your family? My mother, grandfather, and one of my uncles are all lefties. Who else has a more-or-less left-handed family?

I ask because I think it's pretty cool when your family is like a left-handers club in itself. I can also forge my grandfather's signature perfectly, when for anyone else it would be completely impossible :)

Hey! I wrote an essay to mark the occasion... [13 Aug 2005|12:46pm]

It very loosely hits upon things like gay rights and disability. It's not very good, but I thought I'd link to it.
