Living in the Leftie Mirror

This is a journal dedicated to everything related to left-handedness. My mother is left-handed but was taught as a child to write and work with her right hand since it was considered incorrect not to do so. As an adult she discovered an interest in her own left-handedness and the phenomenon in general, as well as the psychological consequences of the once widely practiced reeducation of left-handed people.
This journal is meant as a present for her. Tell me (and her) about your experiences as a left-handed person or with friends, family members or colleagues who are lefties. What do you have to say about the subject? How does your own left-handedness (or that of a person close to you) affect your life? Were you also forced to use your right hand as a child even though you were more comfortable with your left hand? Share your thoughts in any possible way!
A few rules for journaling:1) Use as many pages as you want for your entry, but don’t alter anyone else’s work.2) I suggest you relist this journal on your inventory immediately after marking it received (since you’ll already be on Bookmooch anyway :)) – this will make the journal available as soon as possible for other moochers, and remind you to make an entry. Don’t worry about time pressure – you can always tell a moocher that it will take you a little longer to send out their book.3) When the book is full, please contact me (Hannah; BMID: hanhel), and I will mooch it back to you. If you are having trouble getting the book back out to someone, feel free to contact me as well, I will try to find a solution.
