My own cursive has become so sloppy due to my predominant employment
of keyboards that I can't read the handwriting of my own notes more
than a day or two later.  Although that's due in part to overly-rapid
writing when I'm taking notes from something I'm reading.  So I've
taken to printing -- not only can I understand it more readily two
days later, but it slows me down when writing.  (I do know the
difference between capitals and lower case, however, and use both!)
