Happy Left-Handers' Day!

“Left-handers are wired into the artistic half of the brain, which makes them imaginative, creative, surprising, ambiguous, exasperating, stubborn, emotional, witty, obsessive, infuriating, delightful, original, but never, never, dull."
-James T. de Kay

Being left-handed has some pros and cons but overall, I've always appreciated being a south paw. It's nice to have little things about yourself that make you unique.

Some things I don't like about being left-handed:

  • Smearing ink, paint, etc. when writing, drawing or using my hands
  • First learning to use a computer mouse with my right hand
  • Everything seems to be designed for righties (scissors for example)
  • Math
  • Desks in college. 99% were styled for righties
  • Nuns think it's associated with the devil

A few things I like about being a lefty:

  • The way my mind is wired
  • Being able to jot down notes with my left hand and use the mouse with my right
  • Using a turn signal is extra easy
  • Being different
  • When strangers point it out and say they're also lefty (instantly something in common)
  • Advantages in sports (I'm ambidextrous with a lot of things)
  • It's on par with my political beliefs

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
