I'm guilty as charged for being an adult who doesn't use cursive. I've always disliked my cursive handwriting, no matter how much I practiced I could never get it to look 'right' or 'pretty'. And then entering college in 1990, printed computer papers were de rigueur and emails replaced handwritten letters and cards so I didn't have much use for it. My handwriting kind of morphed into its own blend of some print letters, some connected letters. But at the same time, I'm sad that cursive is dying in schools. Hypocritical, I know. ETA: I remember being a child and pretending to write cursive, and being so excited when I got to 3rd grade and started learning it. It was seen as one of the progressive steps to growing up. Wow, I can read and write cursive, look at me, all adult and stuff. What do kids have now to replace that thrill of being old enough to do something? In the grade school years, that is.
