I got some Christmas money from my parents, and this year I decided to use it to do something I never would have done with my own money. I signed up for a calligraphy class at a local art store. I've always wanted to be able to do it, really just so I can make my Christmas cards look nice. I had my first class last week. When I bought the supplies, I thought how the heck am I going to learn this. I mean, real ink and that funny pen with the nubs. Well, after my first class I'm not so bad. It's actually quite meditative writing "i's" "u's" "w's" "n's" "m's" and "v's" over and over. I've been practicing, here's how it looks so far. And by the way it's very messy.
