6 So-Not-Cool Things About Being A Lefty

Around ten percent of the world is left-handed. People with a dominant left hand typically tend to excel in fields that require visual-spatial abilities (for example, graphic design) and generally have a more balanced view of their bodies (1). But being left-handed can have its...limitations. That's why I've create this post - to share with you left-handed hardships (and check to see if this is relatable, or if I'm the only one).



Here are 6 so-not-cool things about being a lefty.

+ Spiral notebooks.


I have to angle my hand when I write in one of these. Or if I hold my pen just right, I don't rub my hand against the spirals so much.

+ Binders.


Again with the hand angling/weird pen holding.

This truly makes note taking a pain.

+ Hitting elbows with someone at the dinner table.

This one isn't too bad, considering my family is kind enough to allow me first pick of seating when we go out to eat. "Rose, would you like to sit in the cramped corner, or in the chair with more breathing room and a better view of the restaurant?"

I tend to pick the corner.

+ Scissors.


Using scissors hurts - especially if I have to cut something like cardboard. It gives my hand quite a workout.

So please, don't ask me to cut anything. Just...don't.

+ Ink or pencil dust always covering the side of my writing hand.

This is seriously the worst thing ever. Sometimes my hand smudges my own writing, spreading pencil/ink everywhere. So not cool.

+ Apparently death is a problem?

Statistics show that left handed folks tend to die up to nine years sooner than people who are right handed. Well. That's concerning.

Are you left-handed? Can you relate?


I hope you liked this wacky yet informational post. :} Thanks for reading!

Until next time,

  5. I know what you mean! My brother's a lefty and he has all these problems. But I also seem to always be getting ink over my hand, hmm, maybe I'm just clumsy!

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.



Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
Enjoy.
