July 6th, family, and being a leftie

So today is my birthday! I turned 16 for those of you that care. (Ugh now I have to change 15 to 16 on the sites that I’ve told my age to =_=). Well anyways, this post is dedicated to meee and my family. And also my left hand. <—Yes my left hand. As of right now, I’ve taken a stay at a hotel (I’m using their wi-fi. Tee-hee. It’s fast now even though my pc is saying the bars are low ._. Scumbag windows. Still love Windows though ha).

 

About my family:

My mother: She’s a kind soul. But that kind soul can get ticked pretty easily if you set her off. She’s very caring and understanding. She is also very supportive of my ways, and she really trusts and loves me. She is also left-handed!

My father: He’s a very laid back man with a “meh” attitude. He can also get angry easily (omg I see where I get all of this from) and he is also nice. But he can have this streak about him. He also loves  me and cares for my opinions.

My brother: He’s a talented man who is also pretty chill and laid back. He ALSO has a quick temper and he enjoys being creative. He values my opinion a lot and loves and cares for me.

So really my family is very supportive of my actions and we’re all easy to set off. ^_^

Being a leftie!:

Yes. I am left-handed. AND PROUD! I’ve come across some facts online about being left-handed and here are a few:

  • The longest words that can be typed using only the left hand with conventional hand placement are sweaterdresses and tesseradecades
  • Some scientists have suggested that left-handers were originally in the womb with a twin that did not survive, or a “Vanishing Twin.
  • According to the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, the brains of left-handers process emotions differently than those of right-handers and are more susceptible to negative emotions, such as anger (no wonder I get angry so quick, ha!)
  • Studies have shown that if a left-hander injures his dominant hand, he has an easier time learning to use the other hand than his right-handed counterparts.
  • About 30 million people in the United States are left-handed (Me and my mom!)
  • Studies have suggested that left-handers are more talented in spatial awareness, math, and architecture. Right-handers tend to be more talented verbally
  • The Incas thought left-handers were capable of healing and that they possessed magical abilities. The North American Zuni tribe believed left-handedness signified good luck.
  • Among the Eskimos, every left-handed person is viewed as a potential sorcerer. In Morocco, left-handers are considered to be a s’ga, a word that means either a devil or a cursed person (I’m a mage. Hell yes.)
  • At various times in history, left-handedness has been seen as many things: a nasty habit, a mark of the devil, a sign of neurosis, rebellion, criminality, and homosexuality. It has also been seen as a trait indicating creativity and musical abilities
  • Between 10-12% of people on earth are “lefties.” Women are more likely to be right-handed than men by about 4 percentage points.
  • August 13th is “Left-Hander’s Day.” Launched in 1992, this yearly event celebrates left-handedness and raises awareness of the difficulties and frustrations left-handers experience every day in a world designed for right-handers.
  • Some scholars note that left-handers may be one of the last unorganized minorities in society because they have no collective power and no real sense of common identity. Additionally, left-handers are often discriminated against by social, educational, and religious institutions. Social customs and even language set the left-hander apart as “different” and even “bad.
  • In reference to a person’s sex life, a “left-hander” is a homosexual.

I’ve never had any problems with being a “southpaw.” I guess no one really pays attention to me when I write. Especially growing up in the South! (Funny southpaw, and growing up in the South ♥). I haven’t the slightest clue why they think the left-handers are evil, there’s a bit of evil in everyone!

Well I’ll end this post here!

Peace and ninjas NinjaPeace
