    Considering the fact that I am a guy, I have good handwriting.
    I go to college, so I have to write many things down.

    I hold my pen in a very strange way (make the peace sign with your hand, place the pen inbetween the index and middle finger, then close and grab the head of the pen with the index, middle and thumb).
    Because of this strange way I hold my pen, I am out to prove to the world that I have decent handwriting, and I work very hard to make it come out nicely.
    On a brighter note, I can hold 2-3 pens at the same time in my hand and alternate between them making for a very colorful notebook. :)

    I'm in high school, so I still have to write alot. My writing is terrible.

    I also write letters to family members, but I type them, in the interest of clarity.

    My hand-writing is barely legible, and I am usually the only person who can read it.

    I only use handwriting for notes, in school, and for personal love letters to make myself seem sweet and caring.

    I just simply type too fast to make handwriting very appealing to me. Not to mention, it helps that my handwriting's awful (in fact, I think it's gotten worse since I was a child).

    I told you it was an approximation. If you can barely read it, I did a realistic job.

    I reiterate that it's actually regular and decent-looking on paper.

    As a senior in high school, I still have much handwriting that I must do in class, although relative to all my previous years it is very little. Otherwise, I find handwriting very useful for jotting down stuff for science labs and it's the only option for math, math on a computer is pure evil.

    I have the twin misfortunes of having writing that is not only practically illegible but is also slow. I avoid it whenever I can, only handwriting for schoolwork or whenever it would be socially unacceptable not to.

    What the hell are you doing to that pen? Trying to crush it?
